Suikoden III

  • Summary: This game is fun. It's really really deep as far as character development and options to your play style. Playing this game definitely got me hooked on the Suikoden series. The map battles remind me of Shining Force.....oh how I miss you.

Chariots of Fire

Jeremy Michael Gallen, RPGamer
15 April 2010

A JRPG Must-have!

W. Volckmann, Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: Pros: Good story, memorable characters, decent music, good battle system, multiple protagonists, very satisfying Cons: Graphics aren't spectacular, slow start, random battle systems are outmoded, connector-maps are tedious Other thoughts: Sure, the graphics aren't great, random battles are irritating, and having to go through the same pointless maps over and over again to travel the map sucks. But this game will thoroughly please any Suikoden fan.

A solid game in the series

Michael Jones, Amazon
30 April 2009
  • Summary: Suikoden 3 was the first in the series to debut on the ps2. This game came with high expectations after the stellar second game in the series. For the most part it lived up to these in my opinion even though it took some risks with the format. This game uses what is called the Trinity system in which you have essentially 3 main characters. In my opinion this was a great concept because you see similar events through the eyes of each main character.

Different Viewpoints, Same Story, Beautiful

Timothy Lovett, Amazon
7 April 2008
  • Summary: The greatest aspect of this game had to have been its usage of the system which allowed the user to see the same scene from different points of view. While you start off completely disliking one character for their portrayal in the eyes of another you quickly understand their point of view as you begin to control them later on. It just adds a new twist to the way RPGs are played and helps to make what would seem like an interesting story into a classic.

a small step in the wrong direction

Ethan Stinehelfer "Master of Arts", Amazon
6 October 2006
  • Summary: I was an avid fan of the Suikoden series going into this game (namely one and two), so i was teeming with anticipation with the series debut on the PS2. This game is far from a disappointment, it has beautiful scenery, great character designs, a varied character lineup, and a very intriguing story that makes good use of characters from previous games. I was spellbound when I first started diving into the game and couldn't wait to play it again when i stopped to eat.

Great story

Ryan G, Amazon
15 December 2004
  • Summary: Most of the next gen RPGs have great cuts scene and graphics, but no real story or game play substance. This is the first ps2 RPG that seems to have a great mixture of everything. No annoying 10-minute cut secences. Lots of action, memerobal characters and much as 100 + game play. There are a few minor problems, and some areas seemed unfinished. Looking forward to Suikoden IV.

Not Quite as Absorbing as the Previous Suikodens

Victoria Mcswain "book worm", Amazon
16 July 2004
  • Summary: I was late to get this game and have only played it for about four hours now. I enjoyed Suikodens 1 and 2 so much that I bought this one without hesitation. The storyline is engaging once it gets going, and some of the music and characters are familiar if you've played the first two games. The menus are easy to access and logically laid out as is the battle system.

User Review

Silverburg, GamePro.com
5 March 2003
  • Summary: The first games (Suikoden & Suikoden II) are among the best games in the role-playing genre. Suikoden III turns all of that into crap. I cant deny that its a good game,It just destroys the series. The gameplay is easy,None of the games in this series were remotely challenging(why they are so fun XD) & the battles are a bit different. The charecters are well done. With 108 charecters you dont expect for them to get everyone with a well done chrecter,But they do a lot.
