What are good RPGs for the Saturn?

They should be at least in English...

I play "Shining Force 3 - 1" these days, but it's more a strategic battle-simulator than a real roleplaying-game for me, because there is no freedom for where to head your steps and there are no random fights...

I can think of two in English right off the top of my head. Dark Savior, which I haven't played much. I can't really remember much about it, so I can't explain much about it. And Shining the Holy Ark, which I think is good. It's a first person view, which is kinda strange at first, but is good once you get used to it.

If you didn't mind so much about it being in English I'd suggest Grandia, as that's one of my favorites, but on Saturn that's only in Japanese.

Shining the Holy Ark is a good game, though it's made me sick (literally) more times than I can count on my hands and feet. The mazes get so confusing you just start whirrling around sometimes.. such whirling makes me dizzzzzy. Panzer Dragoon Saga is also a GREAT rpg. If anyone ever tells you saturn wasn't made for games like FF8, with fmv and all, show them that.. There are so many fmv movies it's almost annoying, but it's a cool game, definately worth a try. Uh.. other than that.. I think that's it, for english. Sorry :(

I only own one RPG for my saturn: Panzer Dagoon Saga. I must say it has to be the BEST game I have ever played for the system, in any catagory. I also think its the only demestic (if not world wide) saturn game to ever reach 4 disks. Very nice.

Enemy Zero (U) is also 4 discs. The FAQ says so:

The Game is in 4 disks, numbered 0 to 3. Disk 0 contains the Opening Movie to give you an idea of the story, a Training section and some information and clips on the programmers at WARP. Disks 1 to 3 contain the actual game.

Also, a lot of people seems to love Panzer Dragoon Saga for some reason. :
:

How did I forget PDS!?!?!?!? I love PDS. It was well worth the money I spent on it. $125. Actually, I got it at $110, but for some reason I threw in $15 last minute. To be nice I guess.

Enemy Zero isn't an FMV game. It more like Resident Evil or Deep Fear. The chick who was the voice in E_Z is the singer from Lucious Jackson.

Oh, and PanzerDS in fully off tha chain.

How could i forget Panzer Dragoon Saga. It is really one of the best , if not THE BEST, rpg ever.

Also, there is Shenmue. It is not really an rpg, i have it and i like it, it got a really eerie fealing. It is an fmv game, but a very good one.

It scared my little brother, he doesn´t dare to watch me play it anymore. :)

There is also Virtual Hydlide for Saturn. It is an action rpg that has REAL BAD grafics, but a cool different engine, with huge random worlds and some nice light effects. (a bit into the game, in a cave, it think it was the first Saturn game that used that type of light effects.)

But sadly enough mostly Saturn rpgs are japanes, but if you can het over that there is fantastic games like Grandia to play. Check www.sega-saturn.com and check the rpg section!

Another great English Saturn rpg is Mystaria (Riglord Saga). It is a real great game. It is like Shining Force III, but you can walk (or fly on a dragon later ingame) around the world freely and do what you want. There are many towns and lots of carakters.

I might add that Mystaria also goes by the name of Blazing Heroes. I can't remember why they changed the name, though. So Blazing Heroes is basically the same game as Mystaria (I think they changed some things when they changed the name to Blazing Heroes).

If you're looking for a good rpg on the saturn, and don't mind spending the money, head for the rarer imports. My picks : Chaos seed, shin megami Tensei, Tengai makyou, meltylancer.

Panzer saga is an incredible game, if you come across the game ( good luck ), don't hesitate, buy it.

If you like shining force 3, then you'll go nuts for sakura 2.
