Suikoden 2 (PS)
Advantages: Plot, gameplay
I purchased Suikoden 2 after first playing Suikoden I, and I had high expectations for this game. Suikoden I was amazing, so I knew this game had big shoes to fill. By the end of the game, those shoes were filled! Suikdoen 2 is one of the best RPG's that I have ever played. It had a deep plot line with lots of twists and turns. There were many different emotions I experienced during the game, from sadness, happiness, excitement, anger, and surprise.
I don't want to spoil the plot, but I will go over the introduction of the story. You start as the main character, which you get to name. You are shown being part of the Unicorn brigade, and get to explore outside with your best friend, Jowy. You find out what you are doing there, and then go back to sleep. This is where the first twist of the plot begins. It turns out that your general tries to sacrifce your squad to further out his career. The main character and Jowy run away and jump into a river together, but are split up after they land. The two characters are seperated, and the story of your character begins.
The graphics in this game are a slight upgrade from Suikoden 1. The characters have more 3-D shading to them, and each character picture is a little more detailed. It still has all of the same camera angles and the same controls as the original Suikoden.
The fighting system is also just about the same. You have your six characters in the party, and some can attack from the back row, while some can only attack from the front. The weapon system is the same in which you find a blacksmith, and pay him money to sharpen your blade.
This game has a similar plot line and feel to Suikoden, but it takes it one step further and really gets deeper into the emotions of the characters. There are really very few, if any, slow moments of the game, as you will usually be on the edge of your seat.
I would suggest getting this game for anyone looking for an excellent RPG.
Summary: a great game
