    Well what can I say this is one of the best RPGs that I have ever played if you have never played this one before and you own a sega dreamcast and you are looking for one of the best games on this system then I highly recommend this one

    One of the most unique RPG's I've ever had the pleasure of playing, Grandia II, along with Skies of Arcadia, were really the RPG flagships for the Dreamcast, a system not really known for RPG's. Both games were excellent, with both getting re-releases down the road on other systems when the Dreamcast went belly up. Grandia II was always my favorite as it had a very mature storyline and really started the whole semi-free flowing battle system seen in alot of games today. There was so much to love about this game for an aspiring RPG fanatic that I had to play it multiple times. And the battle with Melphis is still, to this day, one of the hardest bosses I've ever had to fight. If you can find a copy of this game for either the Dreamcast or PS2, go ahead and get it and give it a play through. You certainly won't regret it. Expand

  1. The great combat system and engaging story truly make the game a gem, not only on the Dreamcast but in the RPG genre as a whole.
  2. What you have here is simply the greatest RPG that has ever been created. And while I put "Skies of Arcadia" right up with it, it's still a big number 2.

    If you love RPGs and are looking for a compelling story with well-written characters, good graphics and a strong soundtrack, Grandia II is about as good as it gets!
