Excerpt: Pre-destination versus free will has long been debated with both sides making very valid points. This is the first time (editor: Family Friendly Gaming is aware of) a video game has decided to take a side and preach their stance. Let alone mock, and insult those that believe differently.
Excerpt: Popular opinion seems to rank Suikoden II as the epitome of the series, followed by or tied with V, then III or I somewhere in the middle, and IV and Tactics lingering sadly on the bottom. Naturally, this tier varies depending on your personal preferences.
Excerpt: Originally released in 1995 on the Playstation, the first Suikoden game introduced gamers to a massive cast of 108+ characters, a rich world, varied cultures and alliances and many interlocking storylines that continue to this day.
Conclusion: And though the game seems geared towards a younger audience, there's nothing here that's insulting to a teenage (or older) player. The difference between a young game, and one that talks down to its player, is obvious.
Conclusion: Fans of the series won't be completely satisfied, but also won't be let down. Newcomers will feel welcome from the beginning. There's very little challenge in the game, but the storyline and the various optional quests and activities will keep you playing until the very end.
Conclusion: Suikoden Tierkreis is voor een DS game erg mooi weergegeven. Het feit dat alles ingesproken is en dat er veel filmpjes in verwerkt zitten, geven de game net dat beetje extra. Daarnaast is het spel enorm groot en ben je wel even bezig voor je alle 108 personages hebt toegevoegd aan je team.
Excerpt: Der er kommet fem spil i Suikoden-serien til hhv. PlayStation og PlayStation 2. Spillene har måske ikke fået det helt store kommercielle gennembrud her i Europa og flere af de spin-off titler serien har affødt, er aldrig nået frem til disse breddegrader.
