Game Description & Reviews:
My friends, if you have been missing the greatness that was once Suikoden during the psx generation then look no further. It is here at last and thy name is Suikoden V.
Lets get to the bad first, the presentation gets a 7/10 in the game. The programmers really screwed up on this one. The scenes, though great, are jerky. The loading is pretty bad sometimes and there are few other quirks. Not that big of a deal though. Take a look here:
Pretty damn good. What you basically got here is a improved version of the Suikoden II system with elements from III. Yes the skill system is back and is pretty good (not as good as Tactics though). Basically all the skill system does is give you stat bonuses but that's still added depth to the system. And also you can choose between many formations during battle in this game (rather than the normal 3 front and 3 in back). This also adds some depth to gameplay and quite frankly is key to doing well in normal battles.
As for Major battles...well I still like II's system the best. Though this one in 2nd place. Real time battles that are much like II's. So why do I think II is still better? Well it's because of the real time. I didn't get to enjoy battles like I did in II. I was always in a panic. Though this is just nitpicking by me so most won't have a problem with it.
Great music in this one. Even better than II surprisingly. Lots of remixes from old game but still has it's own great tunes. What can I say. It's one of the better sound tracks to an RPG in a long while.
Characters and Story 10+/10
Holy cow!This where the game really shines. Great story. I don't want to spoil anything for you but this even better than II. Lots of good twist, lots or character involvement and everything you could want in a story.
Not bad, but not the best graphics ever seen on an rpg that is for sure. After playing KH2 these graphics are quite dull. But it's still pretty damn good for Suikoden.
Well that's it from me. I have heard the second time through is even better. So if you are a suikoden fan and you don't have this game, shame on you. Go get now.....I said NOW! :)
