  • Excerpt: "Plot: The usually type adventure plot, not all that orginal. But if you like RGP's the plot is good and keeps you interested. The characters are one dimensional. Gameplay: The best thing about this game is the battle setup. Its really enjoyable and fexible. It reminds me a little of secret of mana. Where you can upgrade certain areas. The spells and specials are very numerous. Its really addictive Graphics: Its a strange graphical game, because ...

  • Excerpt: "...release in 1997. I played Grandia 2 before I played Grandia, even though I bought Grandia before it's sequel. So I should be able to like it's prequel more then the sequel I told myself, I will understand everything and love everything. Unfortunately, I liked Grandia 2 better, here's why: 80 hours of Gameplay? PLEASE NO! Whilst Grandia 2 didn't have dungeon after dungeon, it took a break from events. However, Grandia has many consecutive dungeons, ...
  • Pros: A unique storyling with a few funny lines .  Great graphics

A Must Buy

  • Excerpt: "If your anything like me Grandia is agreat game, still not as good as Final Fantasy but very close to it. If you like those older RPG type games where they put nothing into the graphics but have an amazing story line filling you with emotion then you must buy. I guess its closest cousin is final fantasy 7. It was also one of the first RPG's to have small clips of people speacking rather than just text, the game will last around 100 hours easily. But ...
  • Pros: Super RPG !  Fun

An RPG unspoilt by the addiction to graphics

RussWare, Ciao
20 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "...involving and convoluted story in Grandia is everything an RPG plot should be and more besides. Many years before the human race claimed the world as their property, the peaceful Icarians ruled the world. After dividing the world in half, for reasons that become apparent later in the game, they used their vast knowledge to transcend the bonds of flesh and become beings of pure light and thought. After their departure, humans and a horned, feral race ...
  • Pros: This game harks back to the classic RPGs of old .  The story is therefore more important than the graphics .
  • Cons: Not the best looking game so some people may be put off before giving it a chance to shine .

  • Excerpt: "...acting is suspiciously American. To me, Grandia is the old donkey of Playstation games... Not nice to look at, but on the RPG beach in Scarborough, it darts past the flashy steeds with no power (Jade Cocoon anyone?). Not a Final Fantasy beater, but people are getting closer... ...

  • Excerpt: Ayer acabé este juego tras cuarenta y cuatro horas de partida. No son las ochenta horas que prometen en la caja, pero son bastantes. El juego posee unos gráficos bastante normalitos, seguramente por ser una conversión de la "Saturn". Los escenarios son en 3D bastante coloridos y sencillos y los personajes son sprites 2D, que en los planos que se acerca la cámara se ven exgaredamente pixelados.
  • Pros: Largo
  • Cons: muy fácil

  • Excerpt: Tras las nieblas del tiempo el pasado es borroso, más se dice que, hace mucho tiempo, los Espíritus derramaron sus bendiciones sobre la humanidad. Pero la felicidad no podía durar mucho tiempo y a la vez que la humanidad florecía, las luchas internas se acrecentaban y la paz empezó a resquebrajarse. El juego: Así empieza Grandia, con la creación y destrucción de la felicidad. De las manos de Ubi Soft, nos llega este gran RPG.

Grandia 2

Agiunta, Ciao
29 March 2002
  • Excerpt: Grandia II è a un passo dal capolavoro: personaggi ben caratterizzati e sempre fedeli al loro modo di essere, combattimenti altamente spettacolari ed una storia sì classica, ma anche un po' più "adulta" del solito, concorrono a creare un gioco il cui unic ...

  • Excerpt: Un juego de rol como dios manda es dificil de encontrar (exceptuando los final fantasy), pero grandia resulto ser algo mejor de lo que esperaba, sin llegar tampoco a sorprenderme en demasia. El juego tiene su encanto, pero es en exceso lineal, y algunas veces pesado, pero cuando peor lo ves y parece que lo vas a dejar, algo inesperado pasa, y te quedas enganchado otra vez ^_^U El sistema de magias del juego es inmejorable, y las voces (aunque en ingles) tambien son...
  • Pros: Bonitas magias
  • Cons: Muy lineal
