Product Description

Product Description

Grandia, one of the most popular role-playing games (RPG) in recent history, is now available exclusively for the PlayStation game console. RPG fans will welcome Grandia's imaginative, vibrant and detailed gameplay, which is complemented by a strong character-driven story, set in a warm and inviting world. Developed by Game Arts, the producers of Alisa Dragoon and the Lunar series, Grandia is an RPG masterpiece, loaded with innovative gameplay features and scenarios that will captivate players, providing more than 70 hours of gameplay. Grandia is an extraordinary story that pits magic and technology against the feral guise of corruption. Long ago, before humans could claim their superiority upon this world, a benevolent race, with great knowledge and powers, lived in peace and harmony. As the world evolved, humans began to establish their roots in these lands and people began to believe that the existence of the magical city of Angelou was nothing but a myth. But the sinister General Baal knows otherwise and scours the world in hopes to find the ancient capital of Alent and unleash its secrets. Embark on an unforgettable journey as you assume the role of Justin, a precocious 15-year-old boy. As the adventure begins you uncover what happened to the ancient world and try to stop General Baal from awakening a deadly secret.

Key features: Up to four characters to occupy your party in exploration and battle, inviting and vibrant worlds each with their own architectural style, a field radar view provides an overhead perspective for easier exploration and item location, over 200 enemies to battle, real-time battles where you are challenged with strategically planning out attacks, distance, spells, placement and orders; all four characters can also attack simultaneously. Grandia has an impressive system of magic and character development that will captivate you for hours. Over 200 weapons, over 200 items to collect, and over 80 spells and attack techniques.

Amazon.co.uk Review

If you can put up with the cutesy graphics, Grandia is one of the longest, most compelling and most character-driven role-playing games you will ever spin in your PlayStation. By the time you finish this massive quest, you will really care about the game's characters.

The main story-line is standard role-playing fare. The powerful General Baal has plans to unleash something of a Pandora's box on the world, and you can guess whose job it is to stop him. Grandia provides a world packed with colourful characters who are fun to talk to, and the unconventional combat system lets players pick and choose their fights. The characters in your party grow, as do their magical skills and weapons, meaning there is always some new accomplishment just around the corner that keeps players adventuring long into the night. Role-playing fans should be overjoyed that this conversion from the Sega Saturn classic was made, as it provides weeks of solid adventuring that never becomes a chore. --T. Byrl Baker

The title shows one of my logging times of playing Grandia. I was up till 3am playing this fantastic game once, in a ruins section, (not one of the most interesting either, in comparison to the others of course) when I had to be awake and ready for school for 7am - first day back too. Surely this gives you some insight into the addictiveness of this game? It goes back to traditional RPG routes, beginning by following the adventures of Justin and his companion Sue (yes, damnit, Sue is my real name too)across the world. Your journey takes you through almost every expanse you could imagine and all of the time you are wanting Justin & co. to go one bit further, and see the next wonderful thing on the horizon. And this is one area where Grandia excels the most, in its characterisation. It is such a character-driven RPG that by half way you begin to care about what happens to the characters, and you'll even be laughing along with them too ;)
An RPG wouldn't be a true RPG if it didn't have its battles. For most, this idea will probably conjure up ideas of annoying random battles from the FF series (Which I love, By the way). But this is not so in Grandia, firstly, you are able to avoid battles by simply running in the opposite direction from the enemy you see on screen. Secondly, the battles take place using an active time bar, with each character's (and enemy's) icon moving along. You are able to slow down the enemy's icon, or even push it back completely (thus increasing the time they have to execute their command) using critical moves of your own. Clever stuff.
All in all, whilst maybe not as quite an epic as Final Fantasy VII, VIII or IX, Grandia excels in all areas. It's one RPG you won't forget in a hurry and are able to go back to again and again, and is a worthy contender in the world of role-playing games. I for one can't wait for the sequel ;) (I have it pre-ordered from Amazon already <G>)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Life Stealer 9 Sept. 2003
Grandia is what is known as a life stealer - ie the world will go on without you and you'll miss world wars while you're immersed in it. Yes, it's cutesty Japanese anime type graphics and fairly simplistic by FFX standards but I guarantee you'll be hooked after 1/2 hour's play and you will quite happily spend 80+ hours doing nothing but Grandia!
I love me RPGs and have played most but I keep going back to Grandia time and time again.
For a game that's pretty OAP it features voice effects that PS2 games would be proud of. Can't recommend it enough. You are NOT an RPG fan if you haven't devoted your life to Justin and Feeeena! Hard to get hold of now, but buy it if you see it, at any price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Superb 5 April 2003
By A Customer
Not usually seen by the majority as an essential purpose Grandia is one of the hidden gems of the playstation and is undoubtly one of the best PSone RPGs.
Playing as the young adventurer Justin, you set out from the port town of Parm with your friend Sue to search for an ancient civilisation, with the help of a spirit call Liete. Your journeys take you far and wide, from abandoned ruins to a military airship.
Although the graphics of Grandia are not as good as titles, don't let that put you off, the graphics function quite well, and the game holds very few glitches as you wonder through 3D Towns and Dungeons. Battle graphics function well and all enemies and characters are well animated.
Grandia's best point is its superb battle system. The way the system works, it is possible for more than action to be taking place at the time. To put it simply, there is a 'charge bar' in battles, all allies and enemies charge up this bar, (the speed depends on your chracters own) once you reach the 'act' section of the bar you choose actions for a character. There are many diffrent types of attack that range from Combos and critical hits, to powerful magic spells and weapon techniques. Upon choosing a move, you execute the command, sometimes with a small lag depending on the move's charge value.
This may not sound like much, but it works very well, and makes battles go very quickly, keeping battles intense and fun at the same time.
Gaining new magic spells and weapon techniques in Grandia is rather unique, and is anohter of the games nice touches.
Each character can use up to three different types of weapon, wiht types including Mace, Axe, Sword, Bow, Knife and whip.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest RPGs in existence 25 Feb. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Grandia is undoubtedly one of the greatest RPGs ever made. I'm a massive Final Fantasy fan, but Grandia can totally stand next to them and hold its own. While its graphics are inevitably dated by today's standards, you shouldn't for one second let that stop you buying the game. The very beginning may seem childish, but don't be fooled. Grandia quickly develops into an extremely sophisticated and challenging RPG. The plot is great and the characters are very endearing, and while the voice acting may not be the best around, there are quite a few enjoyable tunes to be heard along the way. The battle system is fantastic and is a refreshing alternative to the often annoying random battles in many other RPGs. If you're an RPG fan, you'll almost certainly love Grandia. And if you're not, it's definitely worth trying anyway. It's an undeniable classic and truly one of the greatest RPGs ever made.
