Great battle system, so-so everywhere else

  • Summary: This is a direct port of the Dreamcast RPG, which was popular if for no other reason than it was one of the few RPGs that made it onto the Dreamcast before the system folded. The beauty of Grandia lies in its battle system, which successfully combines real-time with turn based by introducing a turn...

Ideal for RPG beginers

  • Summary: I have passed this game playing it when I can. Took me about a month and there are a few things that I noticed in this game that kepted me from enjoying it. First, the compass within the game is useless. If there is a logical way to understand it then I'm at a loss.

  • Summary: Well, Grandia 2 has come and gone. I was fairly happy with the derivative story (a cross between FF7 and BOF2 would be an accurate description), but the quest itself was too easy and brief.

Slight disapointment, to those who played the first Grandia

  • Summary: The game is decent, or actually kind of "ok". However, to those, who has played the first Grandia, the game story is kind of boring. That what made me to not finish the game. But it's a good game.

  • Excerpt: Grandia 2 is your typical RPG game, where you play the role as ryudo helping to prevent the war between good and evil. On your quest you go round defeating different parts of valmar (the devil) and are also traveling with a part of it. The fighting scenes in this game are very good.

A Grand Day In

  • Excerpt: Game Arts' RPG Grandia was (at the risk of making a sweeping statement) one of the best games ever made. Sadly, it is also among the most criminally overlooked. It was first released in Japan in 1997 on the ill-fated SEGA Saturn before belatedly reaching our shores in 2000 on the PSOne format.
  • Pros: Good story with strong characters, great design, excellent battle - system
  • Cons: Too short, not very different from the original, uninspired visuals

  • Summary: If this game had better graphics and more voice acting, it would be well among the ranks of final fantasy. it doesnt, but that doesnt stop it from being a v good game. I like the way how on some attacks it uses FMV graphics to give full impact. i say three stars, but its more like 3.5.

Great game, but...

  • Summary: Not many console RPGs make it over to the shores of Britain. We get SOME of the big names, like Final Fantasy and... well Final Fantasy, but there are so many we miss out on. Going right back to the SNES, the continent and Europe remain ignorant of how many brilliant games there are out there (From...

Missing that vital spark...

  • Summary: I have just finished this RPG on Playstation2 and, although it was mostly enjoyable, I was not sorry to see the game end. This is a typical Japanese RPG, complete with anime stylings, but it just isn't involving.
