I thought the story of Suikoden 4 was good, although travelling in the ship was the equival;ent to riding a wet mop.

In my opinion, Suikoden 2 was the best-- becasue it was pretty much a direct follow up to the first one, had a great cast, and pretty much did a lot of fan service by having a lot of the coolest characters re-appear... like Clive.

If 3 was any indication, I don't really see how the last few could really compare to 2. 2 was, by far, the best game in pretty much every last way. I also enjoyed the original, although I suppose it was a bit less impressive by comparison.

I bought 3 based on how much I enjoyed the first two and I enjoyed it for a while. I liked the style and the story wasn't bad. I enjoyed being able to play from multiple character angles. I also liked that whole trading goods system and wouldn't mind seeing it in other RPGs.

However, I just never felt used to the battle system, the "dungeons" that were nothing more than straight tunnels just bored me to tears and eventually I just felt like I lost any sense of fun playing it. It's not a bad game, but I guess it never really captured me.

Well, in defense of the latter games, after 3-- the battle system is a lot more based on the first two installments, rather than part 3.


What upsets me, though is the fact that you can't take your memory card and load previous games into the new installments for extra bonuses... so you can literally avoid playing 1-3 and jump to 4.

However, I will admit-- Suikoden 3's intro was far better than any of the other intros. Just seeing the epic anime clips all compiled together into a montage of the story was just awe inspiring.

I'd like to play the games but they're so rare to find(in English). The ones I'm really wanting to play is part 2 and 3. Part 5 looks awesome as well so I can't wait to get a copy of that one. :)

Well, 3-5 are very common in Gamestops and EB Games.


Suikoden 1 can be found online for dirt cheap usually, put Suikoden 2 will set you back $100-$200, sadly.

I only played the 3rd one and I didn't like it at all. While the story was quite enjoyable the battle system was bad, too much backtracking and visiting the same locations over and over...

Ah. That's too bad, then. Suikoden 2 is probably one of the top 10 best rpgs of all time, imo-- mainly because it's tied in with the first one seamlessly without making you feel like you're playing the first one. Plus, it fathered one of the best villians ever: Luca Blight. In terms of just evilness, he greatly overshadows androgenous clowns like Sephiroth.

I agree... I thought it's handling could have been quite a lot better, but I really liked the main idea behind the story.

Far as favorites go...  even though I liked all of them and 2 is great (along with having my favorite videogame villian ever), 3 was my favorite overall.

Suikoden 1 was good for the mid-90's, but I find the interface rather unfriendly and frustrating compaered to most latter day interfaces.

Suikoden 2 is one of the best games ever made. Great bad guy, good characters and charming graphics.

Suikoden 3 was terrible. I spent lots of money getting it on import (wasn't released on PAL) and regretted it. I don't know what I don't like about it, but I thought it was awful although lots of people like it.

Suikoden 4 was alright-ish, but whne you see Suikoden 2 all you can ask yourself is "Why, Konami? WHY?!". Not a terrible game, but not a very good one either.

Suikoden 5 isn't out yet, but apparently it's pretty good.

Suikoden I & II are two of my favorite games ever & by far the best of the series with part III as third best.

II is overrated and really not all that good. At least, not as good as people would like you to believe. I thought the first was better.

Even though IV had a weak story, bad graphics, and a simple battle system, there's just something about it that makes me like it so much. I liked V a lot too, still playing I and I haven't tried III or II yet.

I enjoyed it as well, oddly enough.
