Well, after finishing the game with the 108 SOD, i have have to say that. Suikoden 3 was a good rpg. However, between the 4 and 5 (never
played the 1 and 2) it is the worst Suikoden i played. I agree, Suikoden 4 is short, some area seemed rush , the story may not be has good
then 2 other (and I'm still not sure which story i prefer between the 3 and 4 ) , but Suikoden 3 has way to many flaw to be great ...at least to me.First, the 'main' enemies are way to strong. They are way to many
'unwinnable' (if there such word) battle or should i say...barely winnable battle. The 3 main villain are too strong compared to the rest of the monster's we fight in this game; especially Yuber. I mean if I'm to just be raped by this guy... why on earth do you allow me to fight him...? Why just not show me a cut scene or something? I though that maybe in my first play through, I was not high level enough to take him...but after 180 hour' s in my second play I'm wandering why i need to fight this guy ? I mean i can beat him, but hell! What a pain in the ass... And well Trust me I've played my share of hard rpg , title like nocturne, dds1 and 2. Those game are hard, but if i have the proper level. I never see some boss
one shot, one of my main character out of the blue.
Anyway, the lack of voice acting was also a major let down...at least for me. This game has alot of dialog...and not only there's no voice , but in many scene there's just no music...no sound ..nothing !
Just some foot step here and there; read the text and that's about it.... I mean beside the sad scene with Yun . Which was the best
scene of the entire game if you ask me! I really didn't care about who died or who was about to die..... especially during Lulu dieing
scene. I was like man , talk about a good news, one less weird character out of the main story ...nice job Chris
, i didn't feel any emotion in most of the 'sad scene' . Also, the war battle are too random for my taste. In so many situation i would haved like to control the action of , at least , the leader of my group. Here a simple example. At the last battle , 2 of the team member of sarasai group are about to die...i choose attack ( i though to myself he will cast kindness rain or something ), but nooooooo!!!!! He cast breath of of ice!!!!!!Do almost no damage and my 2 damaged character died
. Or the enemy group leader is at 20 hp...and no one in my freaking group is intelligent enough to finishing off...talk about fun. Finally, and this is another is a personal taste (again
), but is it me or Hugo chapter are just boring..with the exception of chapter 3
(which is short), most of the time you are trapped in some game event and can't go recruiting and/or levelling your char. Well , like i said
Suikoden 3 is a good rpg, better then many other rpg on the ps2...but this Suikoden could have been so much more....
p.s: I'm new...and well english is not my primary language . Sorry for the grammar and/or any speliing mistake i hope you got the main idea
