Overview

Grandia Overview

Grandia is a traditional RPG for the Sony Playstation 1. This basic role playing game is like most created at this time. Characters will level up and gain new abilities and stats and will grow stronger the more you use them. Where this game differs from others in the genre is it’s magic system. Players exchange magic eggs to learn a type of spell. As the player uses that spell it will level up and they will learn more. If you have two types of spells and level them both you will also get new spells that are combinations of the two. The story starts out really slow and is a bore at first, but later on the story picks up and gets much more engaging.

Overview

Final Fantasy 8 Overview

Final Fantasy games have it pretty tough. They’re often compared to other Final Fantasy games, which isn’t an easy task for any game. A lot of fans, including me to some extent, found VIII a bit of a disappointment, but it’s by no means a bad game. It’s probably the most innovative of all the Final Fantasy games, and it’s so different that it’s likely going to take some getting used to.
