This game is soo cool because you get to play 5 different characters story line through multiple chapters and 3 are main characters.You get the same multiple choice questions and answers and you get a whole town with a castle.There are new things like the lottery which is easy to win,and a theatere,outside resturant etc.The battles are pretty challenging in the middle of the game and main bosses are not to be taken lightly.You'll need to plan really good strategy to play this game.There are also mini bosses in the mountains and caverns and when you kill them there's a treasure chest behind them that you can loot with 20+ high level or rare items in it.They also respawn as stronger bosses every so often and the treasure gets better too.I would highly reccomend this game to anyone that likes strategy rpg's.The only things that were a set back were the loading screens and theres no voice acting just dialoge.I promise the story is great so it makes up for it.There are over 150 hours gameplay and if you get all 108 s.o.d. then you get the 6th special character unlocked after you beat the game.So go pick up your copy they are cheap and a great permanent addition to your rpg collection.I also reccomend suikoden 4 and 5.
Suikoden series has always been great, but this time they out done themselves. This game is excellent. The storyline is long it's over 110 hours of gameplay. The graphics are good considering how old this game is. The sound effects is mediocre, but the music makes up for that. The music of suikoden III is just amazing. There wonderful part about this game is the fact you can play as 6 different characters. And they all have a different part into the storyline. 3 of them are the main characters you get to have. Character Customization is actually good as well, the downside to it you can't change clothes depending on what they wear. But as far as their strength, magic or runes which is in this game goes it's awesome. This game is a tactical-rpg and it's second to none in my opinion. The suikoden series is always good so i reccomend suikoden 4 and 5. And if you can get it suikoden 1 and 2 they care pretty expensive however.
