I've played II through V. It's hard to choose between II and V as my favorite. IV is my least favorite for the obvious reasons. III was pretty good, and I have yet to play the first one.

True, so true, dirkjr.
But how does the battle system works in suikoden 3? I couldn't figure it out so i stopped right from the start.
Too bad i couldn't convert suikoden 1 to suikoden 2, different translator n companies......
I wanted to see the hero from s1 inaction in s2 sooooo badly!!

1 and 2 are incredible, some of my favorites to this day. 2 especially considering it only took me two days to beat the first one (with a substantial number of the stars) but 2 seemed to take forever (which wasn't a bad thing). I didn't know there was a way to keep the girl alive! I never liked Jowy though..

I never played 3 because I read a lot of terrible things about it (including the battle system where you can only control 3 characters at once or something lame). I didn't know you could use Yuber in it though, that's pretty cool.

I played 4 when it came out in Japan, just because it came out when I was on winter break. It was way too easy to recruit characters, and the story was kind of lame, but at least you could control four characters.

5 was great, a real revival of the series (you can finally control a decent number of characters again!). My only problem with the game is that the whole beginning deal takes forever, around 10 hours (not to mention some bad loading times).

Overall the series is great because there are a ton of characters and the games (on average) are ridiculously easy, so if you want to play with weak characters just because you like them, you won't be punished for it. Recruiting characters is really fun, too, and watching your castle/base grow is the best. A lot more to do in these games than in Final Fantasy or some of the other big RPGs.

i played suikoden saga from 1 to five but my favorite is suikoden 2 it has a great plot plus great background sounds even though the graphics wasnt great its alright for me. also i think the hero in suikoden 2 has the most powerful rune only second to Leknaat. In suikoden 1 mcdohl has also had great rune combined in the hero in suikoden 2 so its great because suikoden plots are all connected not like the final fantasy im not saying final fantasy are not good but suikoden is unique as an adventure game.

I Have played this series and I love it~!!
Im a great fan of Suikoden Series. ^.^

I have already played Suikoden I , II and V.
I probably play suiko III next..hmmm
Although I was supposed to play Suiko III first
I got Excited of V due to the stories it was
as good as II.

i played II to V..
suikoden is still the same from 2 to until five..
collect hundred plus characters.. (the only reason why i like it)
the graphics are improving but only in a average point..
the story is kind of disappointing..
coz it's predictable and bland..
they better do something to attract more gamers..
2 is my fave coz it introduced me to the series..

you can control up to 6 players in Suikoden 3...

Suikoden 1 & 2 is good, i instantly liked the character recruiting process and the storyline(wasn't considered great or fantastic but it stuck to me).

Suikoden 3, up till now, is my 2nd all-time favourite game(just behind Xenogears). the characterisation and interwoven storyline appeals alot to me, and the last dungeon is absolutely brutal!

Suikoden 4 is by far the worst in the series... enough said. though it's the easiest to level up.

Suikoden 5 is not bad. and it's good to see old characters like Georg Prime, Killey and Lorelei.

all in all, parts 1 ~ 3 has that sense of familiarity with it's recurring characters, part 4 is plain crap to me and part 5 is, well, not bad

2 was my first, but generally all are great Interesting thing is that they always get betrayed by a "Best Friend", kinda relative to real life sometimes....

That's not always the case... Only in 2 and 4 that both Riou and Lazlo were betrayed by 'best friend', Jowy and Snowe respectively... But in 1 Ted didn't betray Tir but impose on him a heavy burden instead... In 3, Cecil stick with Thomas to the very end, or in Hugo's case Lulu is just an annoyance and deadweight, or if you'd consider Sgt. Joe or Fubar even as his best friend i've no comment on both... In 5, Lyon stick with the Prince[forgot his official name, maybe he wasn't given one... well anybody please correct me on this and give his official name, I kindly appreciate it] to the very end, he was 'betrayed' by his [hot and smexy]aunt instead....

Hmm.. Yeah you are right.. 2 and 4 left the biggest impression on me though, 3 was a switching role between three characters so it was more a case of, now I am .... then ...., so it's easy to forget sometimes. Thanks for the corrections
