    Suikoden II is better.

    Good: -Dynamic story that let's you choose which character to play next, which isn't something you typically find in RPGs. Overall, the story is decent, if not slow paced at times with a few surprises here and there. ... Read Full Review

    Incredibly immersive and interesting story,worthy of its Suikoden title.

    We all know this game is from early 2000's, from there, we expect some plain game with little to offer for today's standards,but it is completely the opposite. Suikoden games have always been recognized for their mature... Read Full Review

    Pros: Good story, memorable characters, decent music, good battle system, multiple protagonists, very satisfying Cons: Graphics aren't spectacular, slow start, random battle systems are outmoded, connector-maps are te... Read Full Review

    Good game, but not what Suikoden series is about...

    Great graphics for its age, not the best they could afford back then but Suikoden was never for the graphics. Trinity system or whatever its called....Yes its great to have 3 different perspectives (4 actually) but its ... Read Full Review

    A story to remember with a great plot flawed by repetitive enemies and abusive backtracking.

    Not many games can manage to have such a great cast like this one, with plenty of charismatic characters, everyone with their own style and personality, with their own story and of course with their own secrets... There ... Read Full Review

    An otherwise near-perfect game ruined by a little bit too much back-tracking.

    Suikoden III was the series' first entry into the PS2 system, and it was a job very well done. The game is very unique in that you get to play the game and experience all the events in the perspective of different charac... 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

    It's just classic !!

    you play with three characters and then get to choose one of them to unite all the players you've gathered during the game.. that move was fantastic and in its era, it was quite clever move from konami to do this trinity... Read Full Review
