Part of me is dissappointed, very dissappointed in the RPG aspects of this game. There is little, if any, storyline, and the characters are just typical anime kid stuff. The storyline in G2 was amazing. The scope of that game rivals any Final Fantasy game, yet the game itself was too easy. In Xtreme, the game is much harder, but the story is soo bad, they could have left it out entirely, and had a more interesting game.
So, what makes one put in 120 hours (and counting) into a game that is so uninteresting? The gameplay. The game's battle system is the best I've ever played. I've never been a fan of dungeon-exploring, 1st person style adventure games, but this game is different. The action moves along so smoothly, and the games system of levelling up is ingenious. You can complete each stage as often as you want, each time with tougher enemies, and build your characters stats to unbelievable levels. And yes, the bosses can be fought more than once as well. And when you think you've actually beaten the game, think again. All the dungeons gain a HUGE increase in difficulty and a new 100-level dungeon appears.
Overall, if you are looking for a fun game, that you will enjoy playing for weeks, I can't reccommend Grandia Xtreme enough. Just try to ignore the bad voice acting, and weak storyline, ok?
The battle system is still the same amazing battle system that caught our eye in the first two Grandia games and believe it or not it can still be tweaked with to make it better! Now characters can combine moves together to perform double, triple or even Quadruple techniques!
The magic and such is more of a crossover between the two Grandia games. There are a total of about 72 spells total and that means more than in the second Grandia game (but STILL less spells than the first). The game is packed with over 100 enemies! Almost 100 dungeons, and still memorable characters.
Probably my only two major gripes with the game were that the storyline wasn't as good as the first two Grandia games, and it didn't seem like there was as much thought put into it becaue the storyline eventually got predictable and there weren't as many plot twist as the first two (and for Grandia when I say plot twist I really mean Jaw Droppers). And that there was only one place you could save but I didn't really have a problem with that since you can go back there in literally a second and go back to where you were in the same amount of time.
The dungeons present some complex puzzles and you actually have to think a little more than usual. This brings out some fun factor for those who like to solve puzzles.
Navigating dungeons is much easier than in previous Grandia games. Now, instead of following a compass (did that bother anyone else when they were in towns besides me?) you have a map much like in FFX that will tell you where enemy parties are! This is a great RPG.Read more ›
Then along comes a game like Grandia Xtreme, a pure dungeon-crawler and battle-oriented RPG which is moved along by a very basic, simple, and predictable storyline involving an army operation to end the "Elemental Disorder" which has been causing chaos on the planet only to find, as you might predict, there is a much darker scheme behind the army's intent. To most who have become accustomed to the 'Final Fantasy standard' (it doesn't matter if the game is fun, as long as the story is good), Grandia Xtreme is a fun, but mediocre game. However, to those who have been fans of RPGs for a long time and are looking for a more modern version of what they grew up with, this is it.
Several changes have been made in the fool-proof Grandia formula. Grandia Xtreme features only one true town, that being Locca, the base of operations for Evann (the main character) and party. Evann travels to different ruins through the use of a world map and links called "Geo-Gates", which differ from save points in that they transport Evann to and from Locca (where he is able to save, sell and buy items, etc.). Within each ruin is a multi-leveled labyrinth filled with monsters, traps, puzzles, hidden doors, and secret items.Read more ›

This game doesn't do the Grandia franchise justice. It's better to just pretend Grandia never made this mistake.Published 21 months ago by Robbie
