About

Suikoden: Tierkreis is the latest iteration of the popular RPG franchise that was introduced more than 12 years ago. Suikoden: Tierkreis follows the story of the 108 Stars of Destiny, a group of magical warriors, as they challenge the almighty One King, who intends to create chaos in the universe. As the player gathers the members of the 108 Stars of Destiny, the forces for good will stand up against evil in a battle that spans the near infinite parallel worlds of the Million World universe.

This all new, epic RPG in the long running Suikoden series incorporates many innovative features to the handheld RPG genre. An active online community experience is encouraged by allowing players to send their characters on quests that other members of the Suikoden: Tierkreis community will complete for them via Nintendo WiFi Connection. As your character travels around the community and completes quests he will eventually return to your party with new abilities and treasures. This provides a new way to level up characters your characters which helps create a sense of community and provides a new way to experience RPGs on handhelds. As players progress through the story, many exotic locations and cultures will be discovered across the game’s universe of parallel worlds. With its grand adventure and larger than life scale, the story is told through rich animation sequences and gripping dialogue with voice over, which will pull the player even deeper into the world of Suikoden: Tierkreis.

Suikoden: Tierkreis reviews and comments

If your in desperate need for a Suikoden title you will eventually play this spinoff, but be aware its story and writing are nothing compared to the old classics. 
Main protagonists is a young, annoyingly voiced character and its cheesy catch phrase makes your eyes roll until the final battle.

This game isnt as bad as Suikoden IV, but the limited capabilities of the DS soon emerge, with battle formations only having four players instead of the usual six and no large tactical battles.

Some dungeons, especially the last one, are very repetitive, boring and clearly designed to drag out to fill content.

Main protagonist has no real evolution, as have almost none of the secondary ones. A handful of those are even questionable how and why they should become chosen ones.

Finding, recruiting, leveling out and gearing the usual 108 party members is the core of the game and its fine for the first few dozen ones, but the lack of more locations quickly feels repetitive.

The castle-base has a unique style and the few upgrades make it interesting chasing done and recruiting people to unlock more stuff.

In the end its still a recommended title as we suffering Suikoden fans need to come to terms with the sad realization we will never get another title in the franchise.
