Famicom Impressions: Suikoden – Tenmei no Chikai

Famicom Impressions

The next Famicom impression is on Suikoden: Tenmei no Chikai 水滸伝・天命の誓い (KOE-XJ) by Koei from 1989 and… I seriously have no clue what is going on in this one..

It’s some sort of RPG/strategy/story-telling nonsense about ancient dudes in China.. so.. yeah.. this:

Suikoden: Tenmei no Chikai

I don’t know if I chose the wrong menu or if there’s some kind of intro that just lasts FOREVER.. but I didn’t even get to do anything! I just looked at the numbers scrolling in the bottom left, and once in a while a dude popped up, with numbers attached to his card, and that was the only time I got to interacet: I pressed a button and his card went away and the numbers began scrolling again until another dude popped up. FUN!!! *not*… I hate strategy… especially non-interactive types…

Here’s a video of the few minutes I could stand of this game… at least some of the music is decent! o_O

  1. I believe that’s related to the Romance of the Three Kingdoms games, Heidi. Those are hard to play in English and somewhat boring unless you know what you’re getting into and aren’t expecting speedy play. I’m taking it you’re going through the strategy stuff first in these impressions? Or are you randomly picking from the collection?
