Suikoden II (1998)

Gensô suikoden II (original title)
Three years after the Gate Rune War, the 108 Stars of Destiny once again gather to protect the City-State of Jowston from the invading Kingdom of Highland, led by the demonic Luca Blight.





After years of war between the Kingdom of Highland and the City-State of Jowston, the two nations have signed a peace agreement. The demonic Prince Luca Blight of Highland, determined to destroy the State, stages a massacre of the Youth Brigade the night before they are supposed to return home. Two boys, Riou and Jowy manage to escape, and find themselves branded as traitors by Highland. They soon find themselves in possession of two halves of the Rune of the Beginning, sealed by the leading generals of Highland and Jowston years earlier. Each in possession of one half of the rune, they are fated to fight each other. Riou bands together the squabbling factions of the State, while Jowy betrays the State and becomes a leading figure in the Highland Army. Together, these two boys and the 108 Stars of Destiny will determine the outcome of the war. Written by Kefka-3

The greatest RPG!
9 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Suikoden 2 is absolutely TERRIFIC. I've played it SO MANY times. I can't get enough of it. The story is fantastic & tragic & everything else and is filled with twists and turns. The regular battles are fun. The full scale battles are great, sometimes I play this game just to play the full scale battles. The music is good. It's a game you can get into & feel like you there with everyone like with Final Fantasy 7, 8, & 9. The only flaw this game has is that it was rushed out so some of the dialogue is misunderstood or mixed up. If you've never played Suikoden, I ABSOLUTELY SUGGEST trying this game out even before playing the first one. I played the second one first (not intentionally, it just kinda happened that way) & it made appreciate the first game A lot. It's too bad the game doesn't get more info or story into all the characters. I'll go into more detail some other time or if a lot of people want me to.
