Suikoden Tierkreis (DS)

 

The long-running Suikoden franchise has amassed a cult following with its continuous story and premise of recruiting up to 108 characters with whom to wage war. Suikoden Tierkreis, the first Suikoden game for the Nintendo DS, dares to break away from...

Does anyone remember Legend of Dragoon, that old game on the original Playstation that was heralded as "The Final Fantasy 7 Killer?" It was almost as if Legend of Dragoon saw exactly what Final Fantasy 7 did with its story, but failed to understand...

A Suikoden series entry that is simply going through the motions. The simply combat and superficial complexity of the story might make it enjoyable for a newcomer to the genre.

Suikoden Tierkreis

 

The Suikoden series may not be one of the most popular RPG series of all time, but its previous iterations on the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 certainly made an impact on fans, catapulting this franchise into cult status. Although the main Suikoden...

If you take a look at the vast library of turn-based RPGs available on the Nintendo DS, you cannot help but realise that an awful lot of them are merely remakes of past games. The Artepiazza's Dragon Quest upgrades, Matrix Software's 3D revamps of both...

Suikoden Tierkreis DS Review

 

The Suikoden series has always took place within the confines of the same universe, though each new game has been set within a different chunk of that world, allowing for a degree of freedom for Konami but also the chance for some familiarity and...

Suikoden Tierkreis retains enough heart and features to still have that distinct Suikoden feel, but there‘s no getting away from the fact that many long-time fans are not only going to be left disappointed at its omissions, but also at Konami’s refusal...

United by fate to oppose destiny...

Tierkreis could quite easily have come out without bearing that hallowed name and might even have been better for it.

While it abandons the the long-running story that defines the franchise, Suikoden Tierkreis offers a brisk, beautiful role-playing experience.

Fantastic visuals and music ; Streamlined game structure makes 40-plus hours feel brisk ; It's fun to look for the 108 possible recruits

Main character's voice acting is atrocious ; Wi-Fi functionality not available until well into the adventure

Suikoden: Tierkreis

 

Making its debut on the DS is Konami's much respected Role Playing Game series Suikoden. Best known for its themes of political corruption, rebellion and magical runes, the DS spin off edges away from the familiarity to introduce a whole new story arc...

Nice visuals ; Anime cut scenes ; Plenty to enjoy after a while

Clichéd story ; Awful dialogue and voice acting ; Unlikable characters ; Warp system may not be to everyone's taste ; Less grand in scale compared to the usual RPG

Consumer review by:

A solid game, but a different kind of Suikoden

 

As the first Suikoden title to come out for the DS, everyone was both excited and apprehensive about Suikoden Tierkreis. I'll be blunt here: I enjoyed the game and played through its surprisingly long story quite quickly, but there are certain ways ...

Fun, easy game-play ; an excellent soundtrack ; an entertaining story

Somewhat childish and undeveloped, lacking in depth
