"...Grandia is truer to what is at the heart of the best RPGs--a grand adventure."
Award for Excellence of CESA GAME AWARD '97
Originally released over 10 years ago for the PSOne®, Grandia is one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time and was widely influential on the progression of the RPG genre.
While the franchise has sold 2.2 million copies over the last decade, the original Grandia is worth revisiting because the game retains its vast sense of exploration and wonder.
Grandia is an unforgettable journey with over 80 hours of gameplay. The player assumes the role of Justin, a young boy obsessed with becoming a great adventurer, who inherits a magic stone that leads him on an epic journey to uncover the mystery of a long lost civilization. He meets other adventurers who join him on his quest and as he unravels the threads of the ancient legend, he draws the attention of the Garlyle Forces who devise diabolical schemes to stop him.
The fight for the truth takes place across the world, with over 200 weapons, enemies, and items to collect and over 80 magic spells and techniques to master.
The battle system in Grandia is truly astounding and is what has cemented the game as a classic.
It demands familiarity with the characters' individual abilities, so the focus is less on customization than strategy.
The characters can counter or disrupt enemy attacks, which is a gameplay experience that to this day stands out as fresh and compelling.
This is a timeless game that can be appreciated by players young and old, casual and hardcore, and it is now available for download on the PlayStation®3 and PSP® from US PlayStation®Store's Game Archives.
If you played the game when it was first released about 10 years ago and miss the old days and a classic RPG, this one is for you!
