Suikoden IV PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Many genres live or die based on how well the game plays, but RPGS on the other hand sink or swim on the basis of their storylines and character development. Gameplay is of course important, but comes secondary to an elaborate plot and memorable central characters. Simply put, if an RPG is bad in these areas, it’s defined as an average game by the aficionados such as us.

  • Excerpt: As of this year, Konami's Suikoden series is exactly 10 years old. Despite that there are only four parts in the series, a lot has happened. Everyone remembers the very mixed reviews Suikoden III got for its drastic changes. As some of you may have suspected, Suikoden IV is more similar to Suikoden III than any other Suikoden.

  • Excerpt: Although this is the fourth in a series that is slightly based on a Chinese story, it's completely different than the others, as well as a prequel of the first.

  • Excerpt: The music as a whole is quite memorable. While the individual tracks aren’t special alone, the soundtrack as a whole is quite good, possibly the best soundtrack I’ve ever heard in a

Suikoden IV – Review

GameCritics.com
19 September 2006
  • Excerpt: I'm not sure which is the more unpleasant part of being a game reviewer: having to play games that you know will be awful (e.g. Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis ) or finding yourself playing a game that you were really looking forward to and finding out it isn't very good. If I had to choose, the latter scenario is probably more bothersome.

Sailing Takes Me Away

RPGamer
22 August 2006
  • Excerpt: The task of creating a new Suikoden game without Yoshitaka Murayama at the helm was probably more daunting than Konami would like to admit. A little more than two years after Suikoden III 's Japanese release came the next installment, demonstrating a number of new ideas without deviating from series tradition.

Suikoden IV

Just RPG
8 August 2006
  • Excerpt: With each new Suikoden game, the series has come just a little closer to mainstream success. And though Suikoden IV isn’t necessarily a great game, it’s charming in its own right and has the necessary polish to really succeed on store shelves.

Suikoden IV

Playstation Illustrated
26 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Suikoden IV gives you sea legs as you take charge of a young graduate from the naval academy. The large towns, wide open seas, and wide variety of character models makes Suikoden IV very pleasant to look at. Each island-state has a unique enough feel to it that it is easy to figure out exactly where you are just by exploring the layout and scenery. This helps a lot when trying to remember what mission you need to go to if you haven’t picked up the game in a few days.
