This is a satisfying game, however. The characters are likable and memorable, the story will satisfy any Suikoden fan. The music is a big improvement over the III and IV. The graphics are roughly equal to IV. The voice overs are generally good ( though I found Lym exceptionally annoying - grown women voicing little girls is very grating.) At the end of the day, this game is another high quality addition to what I consider the best RPG series around. Recommended, without question.
For those who love the compelling, sometimes very dark storyline, you'll find it here. Everything from the pain of leading and losing troops, genocide, and betrayal can be found here. The translation is flawless, and the humor is fresh and had me laughing on more than one occasion.
The castle-building is back as well, with new recruits changing the nature of your headquarters, adding mini-games and special treats throughout. The fishing game is loads of guilt-free fun, and there are a number of various other games to play as well.
Of course, it wouldn't be Suikoden without the search for all 108 stars of destiny. Let this be a warning; Suikoden V is much more unforgiving when comes to getting all of the Stars. If you aren't careful, you can easily miss a crucial star, and worse yet, it can lead to you missing other stars because you needed the first to get the others. This is remedied with a New Game+ option, which lets you carry over skill points, money, and items to a new game after beating it.
The music is also worth mentioning. While not as catchy as Suikoden II, which is a virtually insurmountable task, it does hold its own, and is easily better than many RPGs out today.
If you are like me and still getting some good mileage out of your PS2, then I highly suggest dropping thirty bucks and purchasing this game. You will not regret it.
Finally! Finally the Suikoden series came back to it's original glory of having a great storyline and gameplay. The graphics are of an average level for what Konami usually makes and the lenght is also just perfect (average 50-60hours assuming you have taken time to level up and find all the objects and secrets in the game) and also with a New game+ option.
The story is set a few years before Suikoden I (about 30 years actually) and includes some recurring characters from the previous tomes combined with new ones. The battle system was nicely fixed (after the bad ones from Suikoden 3-4) and the large army battles were the most interesting so far!
It still doesn't surpass Suikoden II (especially if you have played Suikoden I previous to that) BUT it certainly gets close enough to it in how interesting the storyline can be. Still I wished there would have been something extra from a previous save game, which has been a trademark of the series since Suikoden II.
