I already own a copy of Grandia II for Dreamcast. I played a few hours into that one, and it is cool that the DC and PC copies of G2 are compatible with each other so that you can copy your progress back and forth.

However I am personally a much bigger fan of Grandia (1). I own two copies of it for PS1 as the first used copy I bought had a faulty, damaged Disc 1, but the game was so good I had to get a working copy for my PlayStation nonetheless.

I hope this HD release finds a new generation of fans and delights the old fans of Grandia I and II too!
