One of the Best RPG's For PS1
The title says it all i actually just played this game back in 2011 when it hit PSN thought it was the second one i was a lil bit bummed out but when i actually started to play it. i was simply amazed that it was somewhat as Entertaining as the second one and just like the other Suikoden's out there you have to try and find all the different characters out there Overall this game will have you Re playing just for the fun of it i myself am on my 6th playthrough if you are a huge fan of RPG's this one is for you guys!
I bought this game back when it first came out November 1, 1996. I would have to say this is a truly great RPG. With over 108 stars of Destiny to collect throughout the game this game has a complex story to follow this is a great Classic Game.
First off, I bought this game for the original playstation. I found it in a pawn shop and paid 12 dollars for a game I hadn't even heard of at the time. I flat out loved this game. The game is about a boy whom is the son of a general in the scarlet moon empire's military. Things happen and the boy finds himself on the run and looking for a way to right the wrongs brought forth by the generals and king of the empire. There are a total of 108 characters that you can recruit into your army of which all add to the castle you raise for your army to gain strength. There are three different battle systems which include the regular team-turn based battle, 1 v 1 duels, and army battles where each group of characters has a specific use within the battle. Ninjas for instance steal enemy plans for their next attack. The graphics look like an old school rpg game like Final Fantasy's 1-6, but that's what gives this game heart and soul. This is my favorite game of all time and I would recommend it to any rpg fan who wants a good challenge and isn't afraid to sacrifice the graphics of today's games for a story that today's games could never match.
A superb classic risen from the game vaults!
One of the end all be all best RPGs of all time. Suikoden 1 has to be the best if not tied with Suikoden 2 as the best of the series. The story is amazing and is backed up by one of the best OSTs of any game out there. The graphics are a bit dated, but, this is a PSone game afterall and back then it looked pretty awesome! I would recommend this to anyone who has been craving a good RPG. You will instantly fall in love with the game, leading to wanting to play suikoden 2(which I might add if you do play suikoden 2 after you beat 1 you can upload your save from the first one which will effect the second game.! Pretty cool! make sure you find all the usable characters!) Bottom line, Awesome Story, Superb Music, over 100characters to choose from for your party, c'mon, give it a shot!
