One of those jrpgs where the combat's really boring and annoying at the beginning but you're one-shotting everything by the end so it's all good. Good plot and character writing. Fun little game.

A good game with a massive pool of party members.

Fun game but following a guide to get all the stars barely helped because i still was missing some near the end of the game

Suikoden was one of my favourite RPGs until I played the second entry which surpassed it so much that going back to the first one was never as tempting. That being said, it is still a really fun game.
The story is great, visuals hold up superbly and it's battle system is foolproof. Character recruitment is rewarding but having permanently missable characters is a bit of a bummer. One thing I think this game and the Suikoden series as a whole is missing is side quest bosses, as the game never gets more challenging than the story bosses.

A very pleasant RPG by Konami. Graphics are a little disappointing for a PS1 game, but the music is fantastic, and the story and character development are top notch. While a bit easy, it still plays really well despite pretty basic combat mechanics.
