    Suikoden is a unique brand, and has a unique, mellow, refined charm that only some will appriciate. Time for the FFTactics comparisons to end, folks. Branch out and discover the magic of Langrisser, Fire Emblem, Ogre Battle Saga, and Suikoden Tactics.

    By the way, be weary of the PSM review. It spoils a very large part of the plot in one single, tactless sentence.

    With fantastic voice acting, a gripping story, and luscious graphics, Suidoden Tactics is a nearly flawless hybridization of tactical and RPG gameplay. [Dec 2005, p.104]
  2. Gameplay works when it's not broken, but awful story scenes and graphics make for boring stretches. [Dec 2005, p.118]
  3. While the game remains highly conventional, the developers clearly understand what makes games like this interesting and have executed on that knowledge surprisingly well.
