This is one game that every RPG fan should purchase!! Its completly awsome, ive never been pulled into an rpg as much as i did with this game! Firstly its the awsome story and thrilling ingame cutscenese that are just totally awsome! Ive never seen cut scenes being soo much fun, it also has lovely humour aswell as very good voice acting. The story i must say is awsome, this is partly due to the cut scenes, there are plenty of them but still even then you wish there was more, this game draws you into playing more just so that you can get to the next cut scene to see what will happen next! Apart from this the other BEST thing about the game is that its Battle system is totally awsome! OH my god last night i done a 3 man combo special on a enemy it was totally awsome, the first one uppercut the enemy into the air to cancel enemies attack, then the second one jumped up and done a 12 hit kick combo and then the 3rd guy jumped up and speared the enemy to the ground killing him instantly. There is plenty of new actions i am finding in the game every time i fight. The magic though is a bit poor as its on the weak side compared with the fighting so far , but the special moves that you get are much better and they use SP instead of ur MP. Also there is no random battles witch adds to the games depth greatly!! Graphics are a bit of a mixed bag! The graphics for the levels and environments is fantastic but the models are very basic almost like the earlier final fantasy games. I have to admit though im only 6hours into the game, but each of those hours has been very memorable and worth the purchase of the game itself! Its a huge huge improvement over Grandia Extreme. I have no idea why the reviews for this game on IGN where just above average, i feel its a must have game for everyone!! But IGN did say that after 6hours its not as good, but i think the first 6hours were more then enough for me and more enjoyable hours i spent then most other games. My Rating: 9/10 Definetly give it a go! Highly Recommended.
