Retro Review : Grandia

Well again I couldn't get enough time on Blazblue:Calamity Trigger to review it today but I can still do this Retro Review on a classic PSOne JRPG that while it's not the best in the world, it was still fun.

Grandia's story in short is, A young boy named Justin inherits a magic stone that leads him on a journey around the world to uncover the mystery of a long-lost civilization. Along the way, he meets other adventurers who join him on his quest, which draws the attention of the militaristic Garlyle Forces who seek to uncover the secrets of the past as well. The battle system in this game is definitely similar to that of Lunar Silver Star Story but not as good in presentation. The special attacks in the game are impressive to look at for a PSOne game and the fact it's turn based combat makes it simple and familiar to play. What really makes this game shine is it's characters because not many games have characters you like and Game Arts games manage to give you characters to love.

Grandia will hopefully come to the PlayStation Store soon in PAL regions but I honestly doubt many people will want to play it. All I can say is that it's a good game with a good story that many JRPG fans will enjoy.
