Still the best combat system on any RPG, over a decade later

Summary: I know this review is really late, but the average low rating for Grandia Xtreme was making me depressed. It left me with a bad impression too at the time of it's release, considering how brilliant the first 2 were. However, this game has aged remarkably well! Picked it back up for the first time in 10 years and I was completely hooked.
Summary: Such an Amazing game, mainly because of the Combat system and items! The storyline isn't too bad, but after you beat the game a hidden Dungeon unlocks allowing for a whole new experience. I liked it a lot more than Final Fantasy 12!
Summary: I have all of the Grandias that have come to America.This is not my favorite in the series as you can only save in one spot and has only 2 towns you can visit.Other than that it plays about the same as the rest.
Summary: Grandia Xtreme is indeed the black sheep of Grandia, but more so in the sense that people tend to slag it more than the others. So basically, the game starts. You go through one dungeon (ruin), then 3 more, before Boost #1, where the previous dungeons get an increase in difficulty to match the dungeons that you're about to face. Of course, this means that if you fall behind, you can be easily overwhelmed.
