    The 3rd installment of Suikoden III is a big disappointment! Please rent this game first!

    Story : The story is above average. Nothing creative, interesting, amazing, or epic about the story. Its basically about a legendary hero who save the lands 50 years ago and the peace he brought to the lands have been br... Read Full Review

    A superb console action RPG. If you're considering buying it, go do it.

    The Trinity Sight System of Suikoden III is definately the highlight. It's indescribably fun to see things happen from different points of view as the story contines along its course. Assumptions that you make at one poi... Read Full Review

    Homer's The Iliad is the literary equivalent to Suikoden III: a convoluted and ultimately dull story littered with unnecessary pieces and flawed bits, but at the same time enough promise that you wish someone could come ... Read Full Review

    Cheers for the underdog!

    This series never got the recognition it deserved. Apart from 4 every game in this series was either good or great (in truth 5 was good, the other 3 were great). I'm reviewing 3 right now simply because I started playing... Read Full Review

    Jeez this game is overrated someone give me Golden Sun, Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy....but not this >_
