Grandia III


TheGrandia series deserves to be popular, if only on the strength of its combat system. It is indisputably one of the most challenging, stylish, and downright fun combat engines to ever be found in a JRPG, and it should be more influential than it is.

Thus, this is a recommendation, but a qualified one. If you're looking for great, satisfying combat, look no further, but be ready and willing to wade through the story.

Grandia III - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games


The trend is similar in most console RPGs. Just when there's an interesting plot development, yet another boring dungeon has to be completed to find out what happens next. The combat is almost always boring and the dungeons grow particularly tiresome...

Grandia III


Starts off awesome, ends up mediocre.

Grandia III


Grandia, as a series, has a long history and holds a special place in the hearts of many an RPG gamer, especially for a series that has only produced three original titles (and one side-story) over the past 10 years. A product of developer GameArts,...

Wonderful cinemas that tell the game’s story beautifully ; Addictive near-action turn-based battle system makes even small clashes fun ; Great voice acting and a memorable, hummable theme song ; Much longer than the too-short Grandia II

Could get lost in the current crowd of RPG masterworks; could be trampled by Oblivion ; Grandia’s beautiful world can only be explored on narrow, restrictive, linear pathways

Grandia is back! And Grandia III is better than ever!

Grandia III


A better than average churn of the RPG mill.

Grandia III


Engrossing battles, but such deja vu plotting

Battle system is engaging and complex ; Great graphics and atmosphere ; Likable characters, passable story

Best characters depart early on ; Character customization is so-so ; Little originality on display

Grandia III


To say Grandia 3 sneaked up on me is an understatement. I was unaware the game even existed until a friend alerted me to the Japanese release, and even more unaware of an American release until I saw the box staring back at me from the shelves of my...

To be sure, Grandia 3 is a very enjoyable game, albeit a bit short (most people can blast through the game in under 30 hours). The battle system is fun, the graphics are great, and the characters are charismatic. However, a shoddy story that loses...

Grandia III Review for the PS2


Fight or flight.

Fabulous battle system; That leads to interesting strategy; A few good characters

That are thoroughly wasted; Disastrous storytelling; Woefully linear; No side-quests

Unfortunately, there really is very little to do outside of combat. Side-quests and subplots might have distracted from the awful story, but there's none of that here. Talking to everyone in a given area might offer some extra detail and an item or...

Grandia III


Grandia III excels in the same ways its predecessors have, but also stumbles into some of the same traps.

Great battle system; likeable characters; beautiful visuals; generally very competent

Story peters out, dies; short and linear; music is generic; battles sometimes drag

Grandia III


Fans of the Grandia series have always attributed to the series a presentation of great adventure, memorable characters, original battles and worlds filled with unique styles and ambience. After the end of Grandia 2, fans had waited eagerly for a...

Finally, what more can I add other then the fact that Grandia 3 has almost perfectly quenched the thirst for another hit game in the series? Grandia 3 has met many expectations, offers a challenging level of difficulty and a sense of adventure like no...
