Are we talking about the same Grandia series here? The PS2 port of Grandia 2 has animation so slow and choppy that it looks like a slide show -- no exaggeration. It also has murky, faded colors and spell effects that half-disappear during battle. The first Grandia on PS1 did freeze sometimes, but was otherwise a pretty good port that received positive reviews. Compared to Grandia II on PS2, it's the greatest thing ever.

I thought Grandia 1 (PS1) was pretty good. I have high tolerance for voice acting, so thats wasn't a problem. The battle system, while a little outdated, was still better than most RPGs. It never froze on me, I played it on PS3.

As for Grandia 2, if you don't have a DC, its much better picking up the PC version than the PS2 one. From what I know, the only problems with it are some sound glitches (which can be fixed with a patch I believe) and low quality FMV.

You're probably better off picking up the Dreamcast and Grandia II. Neither are terrible expensive, and it opens up worlds of other excellent games to play too.

The only reason I dont have Grandia II is because I want the one with the music cd. XD
