All I have to say is wtf? What kind of ending was that? A couple of uneventful image stills and some thumbs up, roll credits? What happened to Miranda and guy? Did the Verse Realm return to it's previous prosperity? Are all the Guardians really dead? Did Emelious float around the bedroom when Yuki and Alfina were makin' babies? The questions are numerous but the concern is nigh for a game that ran through an ending so fast just to make it's release date.

Yeah, it was quite dissapointing, especially when you compare it to Grandia 1 and 2's ending. It seems rushed, and lacks the usual attention to detail that Game Arts has had with the past Grandia titles.
Lol! I've finished the game recently as well and I simply didn't care about the story anymore because I knew it was bad since I started playing it over a year ago. From the 3 Grandia games I've played this was the worst and I hope if they have the courage to release another they work harder to make a better game.
Someday the next great emigration will occur.
I don't think it would have been so bad if they wouldn't have let so many loose ends unresolved throughout the game's plot. They don't normally do that, at least not to the extent they have in this game. The battle system was definatly one of the best in the series IMO. I remember plugging away at the game solely because of the battle system. It was quite addictive.
What about xtreme? Is it any good? And is it a remake of the first?

I agree. I might have liked Grandia III a little more had the makers actually bothered to explain some things a little better. So many characters just came and went as well as several question that were left unanswered or were never explained well in the first place. Sadly that ending only hammers in the fact how lazy they were.
Xtreme is not a remake MarioShroomed but more of a side story to the grandia series. So as expected the plot is pretty basic and practically nil on character development. Also don't expect to visit a variety of towns because there is only one central area (the military base) where you can purchase items and the few towns you do visit (only one, I think) only serves as part of the plot rather than anything else. But those negatives aside Xtreme focuses more on the battle system and exploring ruins which is why I enjoy it so much. Although both Grandia III and Xtreme have a similar battle systems, (IMO) Xtreme's is superior since it has more variety (over forty different combo attacks) and you can choose who you want on your team as opposed to it being fixed as in Grandia 3.

Now would you like fries with that Order?
Yeah, I felt the same way about the story and ending. I ended up turning the sound off for the last 2 dungeons, because I was so uninterested in the characters and the plot. I'm still annoyed that the only 2 playable characters I was interested in, left the party so early in the game.:(
You played the rest of the game, right? What part of that gave you the impression they gave a damn about the story? It was just crap. It's like the dev's were inspired by a s*** one of them took, and decided making a s***ty, unfinished, undeveloped, unintersting story was a good idea.
