YMMV / Grandia III

  • Narm: "All love must PERISH!!!"
  • Tear Jerker: When Yuki leaves Miranda and finally calls her "mom."
  • That One Boss:
    • The Melc Crystals. They have two forms that they can switch between at any time, each form with its own characteristics. Its first form is just like any regular old boss, albeit slightly more powerful. However, its second form, that of a bird, is an incredibly fast and powerful monster of a boss that can tear players to pieces. Did we mention that simply changing forms deals damage to everyone and can cancel?
    • Also, Emelious has given players some trouble. The player must not only deal with the onslaught by three opponents (the sword, the orb, and Emelious himself), but also must keep the aptly named God Slayer from reaching its acting point—if it gets the chance to do so, the entire party will be instantly killed.
    • The final boss is no pushover either, boasting 120,000+ HP and incredibly powerful attacks. Not only that, but it gets fiercer and fiercer the less HP it has.
  • Tough Act to Follow: After its widely acclaimed predecessors, many fans were disappointed with the third game due to it being rushed and quite short by comparison (which isn't helped by the fact that the game was going to be much longer and bigger than it ended up being), and the plot and characters feeling like rehashes from the first two games' characters but lacking their charm. That said, everyone agrees that the gameplay is excellent, just like with its predecessors.
