The Best RPG I Have Ever Played!

MrBrights..., Ciao
29 September 2011
  • Excerpt: "== SUIKODEN II == Suikoden 2 is a role playing game published and developed by Konami and it has to be one of the rarest PSX games ever. It is also one of the best games I have ever played. The Suikoden series has always been in the shadows of the Final Fantasy series. The Suikoden series for me has been much better. I'm a massive RPG fan and a big Final Fantasy fan but the only thing I love more is the Suikoden games. Suikoden 2 has a vast amount ...
  • Pros: Over 108 characters to recruit, 3 different battle types and a fascinating story !
  • Cons: Graphics are dated and the price is ridiculous !

Suikoden 2! RPG for ps1

24 July 2010
  • Excerpt: "...all time in my opinion. Suikoden 2 has to be the best one out of them all so far. Suikoden 2 was originally brought out in Japan by Konami and because it did so well over there it was then brought out in America and then over in England. Suikoden means the water margin and its a chinese story of the 108 stars of destiny. There are more than 108 characters that join you on this game as your goal is basically to get an army together to fight Luca Blight ...
  • Pros: more than 108 characters to recruit, great story line and loads of quests and mini games to play
  • Cons: too many battles and can drag at times .

Rare: Superior sequel to classic game

  • Excerpt: "...Also you can use your Suikoden 1 save to carry across the stats and equipment from characters you recruited in the first game, making it a true sequel. Some of the stories carry over from Suikoden one, but the game makes sense in its on right (I played this game before I got Suikoden 1 and had no trouble following the plot.) As in the first game, you are based at a castle, which grows in size and facilities as you recruit more of the 108 stars. ...
  • Pros: Great plot, story, characters etc .  Improves on original
  • Cons: Basic graphics, no voices

Suikoden 2... BUY IT YOU FOOL

mrkwes, Ciao
24 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "Did you notice the title? Well there was a reason for my outburst. If you don't buy this game then you are obviously not an RPG fan! And if not why not? Suikoden is your fairly typical RPG: Japanese, poorly translated, turn based combat. It works and it pulls it off with style and originality as you have to face hordes of armies in the massive battles that await you and your army of... however many men you recruit. Initially you start with just your ...
  • Pros: Traditional RPG stylee .  Fun to play, good for beginners but also excellent for experts
  • Cons: Graphics weak, dailogue is iffy and the humour is a tad japanese

Suikoden II, nice.

RussWare, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "Suikoden II has its work cut out. When the original game came out, there were few decent RPG’s, and certainly no Final Fantasy’s, and as such did fairly well on the sales front even though it wasn’t actually all that good. This time around there are several big names to contend with, so Suikoden II will have to up the stakes if it wants to sell well. The basic gameplay is all but identical to that of the first game, in that you ...
  • Pros: Good battles, fairly good story and big enough to satisfy fans .
  • Cons: Not much of a step up from the original .

  • Excerpt: "If you liked the first Suikoden you will love this one, it has all the ruins from the first one and more the only set back is all the talking. It can get a bit of time to get used to the simplicity of it, but after that it’s really fun its not to hard or to easy you just have to remember what’s going on it’s even easier if you listen to the talking because that’s how they tell you where to go. And if you don’t know how to get to some where you ...

  • Excerpt: "Suikoden II is a wonderful RPG game produced by Konami that will have you sat at your TV screen for hour upon hour!! You take on the role of 'Hero' (you name the character yourself!) and the object of the game is to beat the corrupt Highland rulers by enlisting the help of various characters throughout the game. There are 108 to recruit alltogether along with some additional characters just for fun, and this is the best part of the game! You have ...
  • Pros: Absorbing, and you'll be playing for hours
  • Cons: Perhaps too similar to the original Suikoden

a blast

Techguy, Ciao
21 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "Suikoden II is a blast, and based on its story, value, secrets, characters and fun I find this as the best RPG of 1999 and one of the PSX greatest RPGs ever! Konami should be praised for delivering an actual sequel that exceeds the original game, and this is what other great companies like Square failed to do. I finished this game using the old save game from the original game, and the effort of saving that game for the past many years was really ...
  • Pros: good games

suikoden 2

Ciao
9 March 2010
  • Excerpt: De la saga suikoden para mi es el mejor de todos , los graficos nos recuerdan a la snes pero tiene una historia muy adictiva y la calidez de sus personajes te permite entrar en el juego y conectar con la historia , muy buen juego , obligatorio a los amantes del buen RPG. Otro aspcto positivo es que te permite cargar la pardita guarda del suikoden 1 al empezar una nueva y desbloquear personajes que de otra forma seria imposible y depende de algunas decisiones que tomes...
  • Pros: Su historia
  • Cons: LA ausencia del multiplayer y la calidad Audio\graficos .
