Suikoden Tierkreis (2009)
Suikoden is in my opinion the best series of video games there is, along with the Zelda series!
This game however was claimed to have excluded some of the series trademarks, which didnt make me feel extreme anticipation. I bought it a year ago, but started playing it first around Christmas, and now I understand that this series is completely outstanding and unbeatable, totally! RPG, as it should be! Unfortunately, this game doesnt use the traditional Suikoden way of using Runes (Magic) and it also misses that extremely emotional relations and events, and almost depressive (in my opinion) expression which is always present in the Playstation games, plus all the betrayals and intrigues. But the reason to why reviewers have critically acclaimed the game is precisely why it's an entertaining, exciting and playful adventure - it has an incredibly well-written story, good graphics and apart from that of "Suikoden feeling", it's a really, really good game with a nice "flow"!
Waiting for Suikoden VI for Playstation is like waiting for a new Kate Bush album - Please GOD! I need it!
