SRPG definition?

Postby ViktoryCastle » Sat Aug 13, 2005 11:42 pm

I am not familar with the term SRPG. Can someone tell me what it means? I have played all the Suikoden games and own All(sold three at the risk of throwing my controller through the TV every time I switched to the diff character) so I am familiar with how the game is played. But will this be like Final Fantasy Tactis? I.E. battle system and everything going to hell in the game? Sorry, again.

Since the S standing for strategy make more sense than standing for simulation, I'll go with strategy (how can you simulate role-playing?; makes no sense to me). We aren't quite sure how the game would be played, except that battles will be played on a grid (much like Final Fantasy Tactics) and there won't be any actual exploring (when you enter a city you choose from whichever store you want to go to instead of walking around looking for it, much like FFT). The game-play is the only thing that would remind you of FFT; I doubt the plot of Rhapsodia will be anything like FFT. There's also unite attacks to utilize in battle, among other things.

Thank you. Such a helpful man. But the thing is, I don't think I will play it. I loved Final Fantasy games and Tactics ALMOST ruined it for me. I don't want to take the chance of this doing that for Suikoden (like III almost did). I also am mad on how Final Fantasy X2 didn't solve a single thing about Tidus.... :evil:

Well, this game is only slightly similar to FFT; you may hate FFT and yet love this game. I was really just using FFT to show how strategy games in general work; Rhapsodia will probably end up being different than FFT, but keeping the same basic principles of turn-based strategy games. I tend to hate Nippon Ichi games, and yet I loved FFT; that's because Nippon Ichi's approach to turn-based strategy games is very different than Square Soft's. I would say to rent this game first once it comes out, see if you like it, and go from there.

and I would reccomend you playing the ORIGINAL ff tactics on playstion 1, it was 1000 times better than the 1 on gba with a HUGE main story and alot of awsome characters

I believe you can unlock cloud from ff7 in that game!

though I never did it.....

I am talking about the Ps game. I played it and it was ok, but seemed to lead me to a place I didn't wanna go. I did get Cloud, and he was the best character. Made the final battle easy as pie. I played the GBA version and the rules SUCKED. Then I found out the Judges will be in the new Final Fantasy game.
