Grandia III review

  • 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

The resulting game is a worthy adventure, all the same. The characters are likable and the story is just interesting enough to push the action forward. The visuals are always worth looking at, and the battles are almost invariably entertaining. This is clearly a game developed by veterans who know exactly what works - they just didn't deviate from that formula an iota. Some elements, like the graphics and battles, are clearly top-notch, and either way, there's little that grates. Grandia III is a consistently entertaining RPG, if not a cutting-edge one.
