Suikoden III

Just RPG
14 March 2004
  • Excerpt: This fall the third game in the Suikoden series hit the Playstation 2. The game hasn’t received as much attention as some of the PS2’s other greats, like Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts , but it’s one of the best RPGs released this year. Suikoden III takes place on the verge of peace talks between the Zexen Federation and the six clans of the Grasslands. But, as peace talks begin, the six clans suddenly attack the Zexen forces, and all out war engulfs the continent!

Suikoden III

Playstation Illustrated
22 February 2004
  • Excerpt: Konami is not a new name in the electronic game community. Other series such as Silent Hill and Castlevania are but a few titles under their belt, and with the latest installment of the Suikoden series, RPGers are given another chance to experience the grace of that which Konami pulled off so well on the original PlayStation . As you'll soon find, the transition from 2D to 3D was not an unfortunate one.

Suikoden III

Into Liquid Sky
9 February 2004
  • Excerpt: Who's right and wrong in war is a matter of perspective. Suikoden III makes this point well as it tells the story of three major characters involved in the hostilities between the Grasslanders and the Zexen Federation. Hugo is the son of the Karaya Clan Chief who delivers a message of truce to the Zexen Council, only to return to find his home under siege.
  • Pros: Trinity Sight System is great way to tell story, Huge story with lots of characters, Multiple battle types adds depth to game, Solid challenge
  • Cons: Battlefield placement could be more strategic, Certain segments of the story are too slow, Midi music feels weak

  • Excerpt: And what would a Suikoden game be without the 108 stars? Just like the past two games, there is an opportunity to collect all 108 characters for you cause, and just like those previous games, you also get quite a bonus for doing so. I won't spoil it, but if you're looking for story continuity between the three games, going for the bonus is certainly worth it to know what happened with the main antagonist.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The PS2 has seen a bunch of RPGs in the past few months, and although I have not yet played XenoSaga (another promising title), I believe it is safe to say that Suikoden III is easily the best RPG I've played in the past few years, with the exception of Final Fantasy X. The story and characters are what drives this series, and I hope they will continue to drive the series into a fourth installment.
