Japanese Rocket Propelled Grenades are inferior to Russian ones.

In terms of overall package , Eternal Blue is much better , it has much more anime cutscenes , better music , possibly better story and more voiceovers than Silver Star Story. SSS only has 2 disc , Eternal Blue has 3 !

I myself started with Eternal Blue and you can play it as a standalone with no problem , though the story itself in Eternal Blue does makes references to stuffs that happened in SSS but it isn't complicated so you can easily understand what happened. Eternal Blue story is set 1000 years after SSS.

However ,you should start from the beginning for a better overall experience of the world of Lunar , i would recommend SSS first.

Part 1
Part 2

I think the graphics are pretty nice. Much better than say Final Fantasy 7...

FF7 was the first into a new generation so it was more of an experiment than a full blown effort. Getting 3d graphics to challenge 2d graphics took awhile. When it comes to PS1, no game do this better than Final Fantasy 9 which have fooled some to believe it is a PS2 game rather than a PS1 game. It's the awesome texturework on low poly models blended with spectacular modern FMV sequences that does the trick.

FF7 still has some nasty graphics. It could be worse though ... *cough* Simon 3D *cough* ...

Probably the wrong person to ask , i only played part 1. It was pretty fun while it lasted. It's part RPG , part strategy. You have different modes of play , once you build a castle to house your heroes in and start to expand it, you will also engage in epic armies battle . I probably need to refresh and played it again.
All the suikoden series should have the same concept , the storylines might be different , characters might be different but everyone of them should have you gathering the 108 different heroes for your army. You have to decide which heroes you want in your party as each of them offers a different skill & ability once you decide to go out adventuring to look for more of the heroes.
