    I would have given this game a 10 if not for the sloppy PSX port. The game is choppy and load times are excruciating. This is the best battle system in the history of RPG's. The story was great and was in my opinion was ripped off for the storyline of FFX, some of the characters were ripped off as well. This game is hard, but maybe not worth playing on the PSX if your an impatient person.

    Inexplicably horrible graphics completely ruin an otherwise splendid title. [Feb 2002, p.156]
  2. An above average RPG when released on the lesser Dreamcast system, on the PS2 it is merely average.
  3. Grandia II may not look like much from a technical standpoint--disappointingly, the game actually looks a bit worse than the original Dreamcast version--but its visual design is well done.
