Grandia II - Summary

Designed to be the Final Fantasy for the Dreamcast, a title which was eventually passed onto Skies of Arcadia, Grandia II was nevertheless one of the defining RPG's of the Dreamcast. Despite lackluster ports to other platforms, the original Dreamcast version is an incredibly immersive RPG, with a fantastic story and a unique tactical battle system which many believe to be the best of any Console RPG in history. 

Battles involve tactical manouvering such as evading attacks, timing attacks for counters, delaying the enemy's attack, as well as cancelling the attacks of an enemy if timed correctly. An incredibly in depth battle system that has unfortunately never beentaken and improved upon.

Just played through it and damn... what an underrated game. Has become one of my favourite JRPGs of all time. If anyone sees this comment (I doubt there will be many who see it), you have to play this, and preferably the DC version since I heard that performance is really bad on the PS2 version. Do yourself the favour!

I love this game. The battle system rocks. I had plenty of fun in my most recent playthrough, beating it using normal attacks alone (combo / criticals).
