    Grandia 3 is a good rpg, despite its flaws and short length.

    For my Video Review, go to,

    Grandia 3 is the third installment of the Grandia series, and while it may not be as good as Grandia 2, its still enjoyable given a chance to be so.

    Grandia 3 follows the story of a boy named Yuki, Yuki is an aspiring pilot, who dreams of nothing more than flying. But on the night of his planes maiden voyage, his mom decides to stow away, and her weight causes them to crash. After crashing, Yuki and Miranda encounter a girl named Alfina, who is being threatened by Sir black armor man! Ok, thats not his name, anyways, after some talking, and failed attempts at fighting, a plot is set in place, save the world from destruction is the basic premise for this one.

    Ok, so the story isn't going to win any awards, but the combat should. Combat is face paced, exciting, and fun. It utilizes the IP Gauge, and by making use of this gauge, you can cancel enemy attacks, and put together devastating combos.

    Graphics are another highlight of Grandia 3, they tend to be very colorful, and shiny, all in all they look really nice, sound design also holds up fairly well, but the voice acting is varied when it comes to it being good, but it gets the job done.

    At the end of the day, Grandia 3 isn't going to change the world of Rpg's, and it won't blow anybody away, but anyone who wants a nice rpg for their ps2, should think about picking this up, Im going to give Grandia 3, a 7.5/10.

      While I enjoyed the battle system alot, I just wished it was a little faster. Some battles can take forever, even regular battles you fight in dungeons. It felt like a chore sometimes and that's no fun. I appreciate and enjoy the voice work in the game, but I hate the fact that they didn't include subtitles during the cutscenes. It just throws you off a little bit, and if you are playing at a low volume you might miss bits and pieces of dialog. The dungeons were very boring for me, no real pu...

      A top-notch combat system that needs to be used in a better game 0

      NOTE: This review was written by me years ago, but it's never been posted on GB, so enjoy!***************Game Arts’ beloved Grandia series is back. Grandia is best known for its epic stories and combat system that truly requires strategy. Part three basically follows the same path as the last two games (I’m ignoring Grandia Xtreme here), but naturally improves on almost everything that made them great. Grandia III’s combat system reminds us just how shallow most other RPG combat systems seem. Bu...
