Well, the first thing that I would like to point out that this is a good game, it is not a great game, but it is a good one. Though I may not recommend it to a die hard fan of the series, or a die hard RPG fan, I would probably recommend it to someone who is starting out with RPG's as a way to get into them a bit more. Being a die hard Suikoden fan, I have to say I couldn't help being a bit disappointed in this game, it did not have the feel that a Suikoden game should have, though the music set most of the feel, the story line hacked the rest of the feel off. The controls of the game were pretty good, I had a few issues sometimes but not all the time, the character's are alright, not the main girl or the main hero, but the side characters and the others you meet in the beginning are pretty awesome. If you are just looking for something to pass the time and aren't that much of a fan of the series, I would tell you this is the game for you, but if you are a fan of the series, please, don't think this game is anything like the series, it's completely trying to separate itself from the main story lines and go out on it's own, to another die hard fan of the series, you probably won't like this game. As for the voice acting in the game. Terrible! Just terrible, the characters always sounded either too cocky, they would talk so fast you'd think they all had ADHD and it sounded like they were talking into a can. I'm sorry, but I do not think that a game, let alone an RPG on the DS should have full on voice acting, a word here and there, is fine, but not like this. This game could be a LOT better if a lot was changed. The character sprites (though I know they are not sprites, it's easier that way for me to describe it) reminded me too much of Final Fantasy DS remakes, which is not good since this game is made by Konami and not Square.
