Grandia 3

Genre: JRPG
Release Date: August 4th 2005
Platforms: PS2
Score: 6/10
Similar: Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest

The graphics aren't bad.

Grandia 3 is the final game in a great but deteriorating series. Although the plot and characters cling to the stereotype and refuse to decease in hitting you with the generic stick; at the end of the day it doesn't stop Grandia from being a JRPG worthy of Square-enix.

The characters are kinda horrible though.

Suikoden 3

Genre: JRPG
Release Date: July 11th 2002
Platforms: PS2
Score: 7/10
Similar Titles: Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Grandia

The main character, Hugo.

Suikoden III is a game I always wanted to play, hoping it would live up to its predecessors. Sadly, I never got around to it due to it being console only. Luckily I got my hands on a copy, and I must say it didn't let me down. At heart this game is basically part JRPG and part anime, which suits me just fine.
