Conclusion: Sound isn’t so bad though. The voice acting is actually tolerable for the most part, unlike most other games. It doesn’t stand above what else is out there in terms of acting, but at least it won’t leave you rolling your eyes in disgust, wishing they had not even bothered. The sound effects are pretty nice with a tinge of an old school 16-bit flair to them from time to time for a change of pace. Music though was a bit disappointing.
Excerpt: Grandia 2 is the tale of Ryudo, a Geohound (mercenary), and his talking hawk, Skye. The story begins as the two are hired to escort the princess Elena to a ceremony. When something odd happens at the ceremony, Elena is cursed by the Wings of Valmar, part of the ancient diety Valmar, who is considered a force of evil. From this point, Ryudo agrees to take Elena to the Cathedral of Granas, where she can hopefully be cured.
Pros: Excellent combat, Pretty good scripting and voiceacting, Skills/magic system are nicely done
Cons: Story is fairly run of the mill and the quest is linear, Suffers from glitches and slowdown
Excerpt: Un premier épisode sur Saturn et PlayStation, une suite sur Dreamcast... Si les consoles passent et trépassent, il n'en va pas de même pour leurs occupants. Preuve en est avec le second opus de la série des Grandia qui après un passage remarqué sur la 128 bits de Sega emménage aujourd'hui sur PlayStation 2.
Conclusion: Mens vi venter p� n�ste inkarnation i Grandia-sagaen, Grandia Xtreme , der begyndte p� Saturn-platfomen, kan man hygge sig med PSX-udgaven af det f�rste Grandia, der kan f�s mange steder til ca. 150 kroner.
