Review: Suikoden V

Suikoden V

Platform: PS2
Developer: Konami
Publisher: Konami
Players: 1

Suikoden V is another entry into the already crowed Playstation 2 RPG section. Well, it’s not THAT crowded, but with goliath’s like the Final Fantasy series and Kingdom Hearts, it’s difficult to see what’s left. Suikoden is already a popular RPG series in Japan, so it’s only fit that it debuts here in the states (and on the PSP). Unfortunately, only the most hardcore of RPG lovers will enjoy this due to the games slowness, both in action and load times. While the in-depth story and the graphics help stave off boredom, this is truly a title for the more dedicated RPG gamers.
