PROS (which are also sort of cons):
Storyline -- The storyline isn't the greatest, but it does have its moments. My favorite aspect is the political triangle involving the three empresses of the Magedom of Janam. They each have their own agenda and are competing with one another for power. There's a lot of intrigue concerning them as you try and figure out who you should side with and what each has in mind. These queens, as with many of the other characters, aren't morally black and white, which I like in a game. The main characters, however, and their plot, is stale and annoying. Kids discover that they have magic powers and go around doing good? Boring.
Graphics -- The environments are the best aspect of the game. They are lush and imaginative. The game could take advantage of this by forcing you to walk around more. Instead, it feels like you just revisit the same two or three places over and over again.
Too many cut scenes -- You just basically walk from cut scene to cut scene. It feels like there is very little gameplay at all. You finish one cut scene and then are delighted to see that you have control over your character again. You take two steps to the left and are forced into another cutscene. What's the point of even letting me walk around? You may as well be watching a movie.
Traveling -- Towns are divided up into single rooms that you access via a menu, rather than walking around freely. If the game wants you to see a cut scene, they won't let you select any location from the menu except for the one that has the cut scene.
Fighting -- Most fights consist of me hitting auto attack.Read more ›
The graphics and music are very good. I love Anime type RPG. The controls work exceptionally well which is another plus. The turn based gameplay is quite fun. Enemy encounters are random sometimes--which I never mind in an RPG. They aren't as frequent as something like Final Fantasy I but you will encounter enough to level you up. You can use an "auto" fight feature which I found superb for regular enemies--and it cuts the amount of time choosing what you want your party to do. I would not call this title (I'm still fairly early in the game though) extremely difficult. This may change later but for now its fine.
The menu in game is only so-so. I found it hard to purchase equipment and really tell if I should or not. It is kind of difficult to know whether you should when you don't know when a Party Member is going to leave. I'm not finding it too complicated in terms of figuring out where to go and what to do--and the map works fine.
I actually like the story--its interesting. Now, for the voice acting. I would have to agree that this may be the worst VA I've ever heard. Actually it would be fair to say I've never heard anything like it. These actors talked so fast I seriously believe they paid them to have all the VA done in like an hour or something. It is unavoidably annoying and pulls this game down in rating for me. Although I didn't feel as strongly as some of the other reviewers the VA alone makes me consider removing one star. It is THAT BAD. Like nails on a chalkboard. Seriously.Read more ›
For starters there are certain elements of the series that they have taken out. You won't find the whole rune system that fans of the series such as myself enjoyed which kinda sucks. They basically replaced it with Magic Points...most characters have certain moves which when used depletes some of your magic points. No choosing what kind of magic they specialize in...it's random.
From what I understand there are no more huge army vs. army battles...
You still have the castle that you have to build up...108 characters to find (which I'm hoping still includes my own chef, bath guy, the gambling dude so I can make extra money, etc; haven't gotten far enough to tell yet)...2 or more party members can still team up on a move...no returning characters (so if you've never played a suikoden game before no worries, this is a completely different story)...trading system is still in place.
I'm a little disappointed with the game in some aspects. For example there is no roaming a town or map like you use to be able to do. Instead a menu pops up with different locations inside a town and when you click on one you just pop up in that area...no walking. Seems as tho this game is geared toward the younger crowd as some things have been dumbed down.
I do wish there was a guide out there for this game tho. Some caves and forests you enter are maze like and have some classic Suikoden traits where you can walk through walls and enter hidden areas to open chests and what not...hate missing out on stuff like that...Finding all 108 stars of destiny can be tricky too..Read more ›
