Suikoden II blows I and III away in a heartbeat.


That may be, but is it 5 times better than Suikoden I, to justify the high price, which is usually 5 times more than I?

V is pretty damn good also. I'd rank them II, V, I, III, Tactics, IV. Stay far away from IV.


Well, then I feel pretty good about my purchases of the last two days. I got Suikoden I for $30 at Amazon, III for $13 at Half, and V for $28 at Gamefly. I can't afford II and I'm not interested in IV.

Should I play mine in order (I, III, V)?

So are we ever going to get the Suikoden I/II combo for the PSP? Or is that Japan only? That is the only way I'll ever play I and II. I'm holding off on playing III until I know for sure about those.

See, I played them out of order. I did II, V, III, I, Tactics.. and I never finished IV because it sucked that bad.

I would recommend playing III first because it's the least best out of the 3. You'll thank me later. It's a tossup after that. I personally would save V the last one. It takes awhile to get going, but once it does.. it's one hell of a ride.

And about II, I picked it up for 40.. So I can't say if it's worth the hefty price tag.. but I totally recommend it.

I played II after I, III, and IV, and I didn't think it was anything special. Prior experience with some characters greatly enhanced my enjoyment of III.

Suikoden III's only redeeming value is it's story which has alot more impact if you've played I and II before it.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

No. SCEA won't allow direct ports on the PSP.

I strongly recommend playing either I or II before III. You'll thank me later.

Hmm... which of you will I really thank later? :roll: Thanks for the advice guys. :lol:

Really?! So obviously you wouldn't recommend I pay upwards of $150 to get it then, eh? That actually makes me feel a little better that there's someone in this world that feels that way. I don't feel so much like I'm missing out. :D
