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: 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: This title can feel a little drawn out at the start, because it feels like the first parts of the story go on forever. However, as the game progresses I found myself thoroughly enthralled by the game, and again as the story and characters progressed, I found myself not being able to get enough and staying up until the sun started to rise. For those who played and loved the first two Suikoden games, I'm very sure you'll love this title.
Summary: best suikoden rpg theyv made and best rpg iv played in a long time iv played litrally every rpg for the ps1 and ps2 etc and this prob has to be one of my favs so many great chracters and its just fun to play around when u cba to fight and the fighting is really fun to do and the bosses are so ace 2 just buy this ull love it granteed
Summary: Cliche story that is well conveived, with some delightful characters and some good dialogue. The story revolves around a prince trying to reclaim his kingdom lost in a coup. The fact that the bad guys are very human and that there is no ultimate evil, gives a nice flavor of realism. A little disappointingly the story turns too straightforward as it advances, and the prince experiences success too easily.
Summary: This is the best suikoden yet, possably even better than the first. With the multiple endings this game has as well as the extensive number of characters to get, this game is a must buy for all RPG fans. There is nothing bad i can say about this game and i have allready completed it once and have continued playing it (im after all 108 characters and a different ending).
Suikoden IV may have been a blessing in disguise...

Summary: Where to start... Gameplay: 9/10 Back on form! Apart from a few minor problems, the gameplay in Suikoden V (SV) is excellent. With regards to the battle system, SV simply expands on what Suikoden (SI) and Suikoden II (SII) did - Not that that's a bad thing. No longer do you only have the option of using the basic formation of old, you can now use various formations, meaning you can make a party with any six characters work.
Summary: Suikoden II is the master of the series, no fan will argue with that. Suikoden IV was pretty good, but a diversion from the magic of the first 2 of the series. Number V however, takes us right back to the core of what made us fans in the first place. It looks like Suikoden II, it plays a little like Suikoden II but with a face lift. More up to date graphics, but still looking like a posh PS1 game, which is FINE BY ME.
Summary: Suikoden V is a big improvement over number iv. A top view is well used (though it would be nice to be able to rotate the view) and the combat is very interesting - with the large choice of charactures available. I would recommend this title to anyone who likes turn based RPGs, with well conceived plots and graphics.
Summary: YES! I'm amazed at this RPG game! Graphic, Story, Music, Background, Art, Culture, etc.. I must say..I'm impressed. this is the first game in 12 month that have made me play 12 hours a day during last 2 days Only thing that frustrated me was..camera control and map. I really wished that the game would have some sort of "map". Only "map" i see on screen is...cough..some square box. Also..so much random fighting I must say haha. Ever square meter, fight goes on!
