Following the death of his commanding officer a Gaien Knight is exiled from his adopted hometown of Razril and finds himself bearer of the True Rune of Punishment, a rune that kills its bearer when used. The enemy nation of Kooluk is suffering defeat in a long brutal war with the Scarlet Moon Empire, and seek to capture the rune and hand it over to the global superpower of Harmonia in exchange for military aid against the Empire. Meanwhile, the unnamed hero finds himself in the employ of the king of the island nation of Obel and must gather the 108 Stars of Destiny to free the Island Nations from the oppressive Kooluk Navy.

Good and Underrated
5 December 2013 | by (Faversham, England) – See all my reviews

This was a very underrated game by some while I was annoyed at lack of land battles I did like the naval battles though they could have been better.

I also liked the story and the True Rune behind the game The Rune of Punishment and how it can be an even bigger curse to the wielder of it also the fact this was set hundreds of years prior the first Suikoden game I thought was a pretty good move.

This is a great game and all of the main characters are quite likable each with their issues and it has its own share of sub games like in Suikoden II and Suikoden III.
