Good and Underrated
5 December 2013 | by Sabre_WolfSee 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.
