According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Animated Violence, Mild Language
Parents should take the games rating into account, but this type of material should be OK for ages 10 and above. Grandia II is a finely crafted RPG that goes a little astray in the final three-quarters of the game.
Dreamcast owners should pick it up if theyre either looking to expand their limited game library or just simply looking for a good RPG.
Fans of the original Grandia should find Grandia II to be a worthwhile game. It keeps the spirit of the original while finding something new to say.
RPG fans will appreciate the games depth of gameplay and strong attention to character development. Overall, its a good game that could have been great with just a tighter focus.
Game music fans may not appreciate Grandia II's accompanying music CD. It was mostly filled with background music lifted right out of the game. It also contains only two vocal performances of worth and a strange club remix (complete with rapping performers).
Young children may have difficulty understanding the story, and there are a few scenes of jarring violence, as well as monsters and themes that could prove to be a bit much for kids under 10.
