Summary: I could type on-and-on about this game all night! I was one of the few fortunate enough to pick this game up when it first came out, and I haven't truly put it down since. I've been playing all of the Suikoden titles faithfully since my brother and I found the first Suikoden hanging on a little video-game rack at our local CVS years and years ago. If you hold any joy for playing Role-Playing Games at all, I highly encourage you to try Suikoden 1-5 and Suikoden Tactics.
Summary: I loved this game. The rotating storylines made for an interesting and new way of experiencing the points of view on different sides of the same war, and how incomplete information can lead to radically different conclusions. The three main characters and their starting companions are all very well developed, and really showcase the cultural differences and perceptions from the different factions.
Summary: I'm not a pro writer....I loved this game.After playing Suikoden I,i was hooked.tried to get Suikoden II,but won't pay 130 bucks for it.Graphics are terrific.Storyline is very good.Big battle sequences are more confusing then the first game.Loved the treasure chest guardian battles.The Suikoden games will be right up there with the F.F. Series,in my opinion.Avery rnjoyable game for any RPG lovers.RPG Gramps.
Summary: Suikoden series has always been great, but this time they out done themselves. This game is excellent. The storyline is long it's over 110 hours of gameplay. The graphics are good considering how old this game is. The sound effects is mediocre, but the music makes up for that. The music of suikoden III is just amazing. There wonderful part about this game is the fact you can play as 6 different characters. And they all have a different part into the storyline.
Summary: This game is soo cool because you get to play 5 different characters story line through multiple chapters and 3 are main characters.You get the same multiple choice questions and answers and you get a whole town with a castle.There are new things like the lottery which is easy to win,and a theatere,outside resturant etc.The battles are pretty challenging in the middle of the game and main bosses are not to be taken lightly.You'll need to plan really good strategy to play...
Best Role Playing Game on any console since Final Fantasy 6

Summary: Since I was 8 years old I've been a fan of console RPGs like Final Fantasy. Now I loved a number of the Playstation 1 & 2 RPGs, but after getting a recomendation to play the Suikoden series, and playing this game, well, there are only a few that stand up to this game now. If you're looking for a game like Final Fantasy or Xenogears/Saga, then this is not that game. If you want the high end graphics and music that accompany these games, then you'll be dissapointed.
Potentially on of the most interesting RPGs I've ever played. 1story: 4 different veiwpoints.

Summary: Parents: If your child likes RPGs or "story telling" games. This is perfect for kids...or adults for that matter. This is one is still on my all time favorite games list. (: Anyway... This game was monsterously entertaining to me. The story was a masterpeice with an army of potentially 108 to recruit for your use. Granted not ALL of the will be able to be used on your combat team of six, but most of them will be and you can custimize all of them to a point.
