i will write a honest and briefy review.
At first i was a little nervous because the start of the story stunk, however give it an hour and it picks up.
Graphics: very nice, while walking around you can see far ahead, everything is detailed, houses in and out, water, mountains, poeple. The cut scences are excellant and so chrisp and clear

Gameplay: very easy learning curve, the battles are fun because you need to use skill, not just X X X magic X X you win, no you have to attack use combos team up combos magic skill combos items, very very good. the battle is a new technique that i have seen only on very few games it is very much like FF X and XII. in my view it is easy to get around and to level up is not to hard but takes time just like an RPG should. there is magic spells orbs super attacks, all of these can be customized with power books etc. Look there is a lot to this game and if you are an RPG lover or even a beginner this game is right up your alley

length: took me about 40 hours-mex level up at 60 i was 52 main charecter and 49 rest

storyline: like i said at first it stunk but then once game got rolling the story is excellant keeps you locked in and keeps you wiht the charecters.

NEGATIVES: talking, somtimes it gets draggy and slow, fighting-somtimes you can fight the easiest guys and they will pull out this hidden crazy move and F-up your whole routine

in my view it is worth it

the only real problem with this perfectly made game, is that it has a bad replay value. everything else is awesome. the graphics are stunning, the characters are realistic, and the battles are fun, but not any different than any others. i strongly suggest you try this game out if you like a good story, a good challenge, this is the game for you.

Bad

The Grandia games as far as their Stories have gone, have been getting progressively worse (although it does have a good intro). The story in this game was terrible and lacked depth and have obvious plot development...you could literally always see what was coming next, everything was reused and obvious. The only good part about the game was the unique battle system that the Grandia games sport. This battle system was better than all the previous one's except Grandia Xtreme, (Although the Air Combos were annoying).
