Summary: Absolutely phenominal game. They really did bring this game series back from the brink that was Suikoden IV. I love the game play the length and the sheer beauty that is the scenery and everything else. The new characters, and the War Battles are absolutely well done.
Summary: I am going to breeze over gameplay in this review, because if you know RPG's and if you know Suikoden, than I don't need to explain much. Read the other reviews if you want detailed discussion on gameplay, because while it's important, I'm not the one to talk about it. (Know that the gameplay is great) The heart of any Suikoden game is the story and setting, and Suikoden V masters this utterly. You are a prince in the Queendom of Falena, a major regional power.
Summary: After Suikoden 4, i was clearly disappointed and thought at first that I would never play Suikoden 5 because I was thinking in my head that Konami finally decided to follow society and ONLY focus on graphics like any other new RPG game. But after reviewing Suikoden 5 online, I heard a lot of good reviews about so I decided to go out and buy. Surprisingly, it was very difficult to find and had to go to couple of gamesstops until I found the right place that found it.
Summary: First off, let me just say that I find negative reviews for this game completely laughable. The complaints I hear all seem to revolve around reading and waiting. Dear god say it aint so. I thought they made games for people who liked leveling up but hate reading and have no patience. Aren't they called God of War? Readers do not be put off by the negative things you have heard about this game but rather judge its merits on your own. Or better yet, my standards! Wink!
Summary: This is one of the best RPGs to date - period. Part of the appeal is that few have heard of it and even fewer have played it, but there's plenty of appeal beyond that. The epic-scale land and sea battles are a treat. The characters are intelligent and memorable. The plot is comfortable but full of surprises. All in all if you like classic-style RPGs, you'd be a fool not to get this game. My only setback is how androgynous the main character is.
Summary: Suikoden V may start out a bit slow, but don't be fooled by it. As you get a bit farther into the game a great story unravels and you find yourself playing a fantastic game that is up there with Suikoden 1 and 2. The duels and war battles are well designed as well as the famous suikoden 6 player battle system with new multiple formations. They certainly brought this game back to the roots and is a must play for suikoden lovers and RPG lovers in general.
Summary: Suikoden 5 is one of the better games in the series. The story starts classic jrpg high fantasy with you as the prince of the royal family and intrigues within the royal family soon follow. The combat has three different forms, the first being classic up to 6 characters vs monsters in turned based combat akin of other games like early ff or dragon warrior.
Summary: Suikoden V is a great game that returns to the foundation of the Suikoden series. If you enjoyed Suikoden I and II, you'll enjoy this game. The story is about a prince who is trying to reclaim the Queendom which was taken over by the Godwin family. Throughout the story you will recruit the 108 Stars of Destiny (many of which you will be able to use in battle). There are three different types of battle systems.
Summary: I have loved all the suikoden games.I have the first thru the fifth.I especially like the game play and the characters in this one.I also like that you can make orbs and build your skills(great touch)There really isn't anything i don't like about this game.The characters have personalities and a great range of indivituality.Love the battles too.Rune archers,infintry,calvery and lots more.Sea and land battles that you have to use your head to...
