I may have mentioned previously on Dooyoo that the original Grandia is one of my favourite games ever. Well, okay, I have definitely mentioned that Grandia was one of my favourite games previously on Dooyoo, and frequently at that. I find it hard not to, Grandia was a very likable game. When Grandia 2 was announced for Dreamcast it became obvious that I had to own the console. Then came the waiting, the painful, painful waiting. All the screenshots and material coming out of Japan was looking fabulous, but after release the stories started coming in about substandard writing and a dull storyline. Still, my enthusiasm didn’t waver, and I’m glad I didn’t . Read the complete review

For the last couple of years, the gamer has been craving an Rpg title that oozes with more depth and stunning features that make the Final Fantasy series look like a dud. Well I am not sure if Grandia 2 has done that, but it has proven a lot to others about DC titles! Mainly because it has excellent characters, moves and it will last you more than a few weekends! The plot is so original now that I think about it and there is a lot more to it rather than the whole end of the world scenario! Basically, Ryudo and his loyal friend (and bird) Skye roam the land for jobs. Yes they kill people for a living and most people think that they are total scum. But he ... Read the complete review

I've played quite a few RPGs in my time, and this ranks up there as one of the best. The battle system is innovative and interesting - you can really speed up the battles by a little bit of planning. You need to be aware of your charcters' positions relative to the enemies, and also be aware of how fast everyone is. It's a little tricky to start with, but after a bit of practice it's almost automatic. There's something very satisfying about quickly finishing a battle without even being hit - you can achieve this by cancelling enemy attacks by using a "Critical" attack of your own. The magic and special moves are pretty damn ... Read the complete review

As the first big RPG available on Dreamcast I was intrigued by Grandia 2. Not usually a fan of the traditional RPG, I thought i'd give this one a go. Was I pleased i'd spent £40 on Grandia? Hell, yes! From the opening sequence it was utterly absorbing and one of the most addictive games i've ever played. After hearing the battle system was the games redeeming feature, I can safely say it's no lie. It makes battle after battle fun, and earning experience points for your party is one of the most rewarding features a game can produce. The battle system remains from the original Grandia on the Saturn and is marvelous. Instead of a boring ... Read the complete review
