1[[quoteright:256:]] ²²''The Granstream Saga'' (''グランストリーム伝記 Guransutorīmu Denki'') is a 1997 ActionRPG for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation. The game was developed by a team consisting of staff from the developer Quintet (under the name Shade), the developers of the ''VideoGame/SoulBlazer'' ThematicSeries, which this game could be considered an oft-overlooked part of.²²The Granstream Saga is lauded as one of the first fully polygonal {{RPG}}s, as opposed to using polygonal characters with pre-rendered backgrounds, polygonal environments with scaling sprites, or other such combinations. The game features anime-style cutscenes by Production I.G. It is also somewhat unusual in that the characters the player meets in the game are faceless.²²!!Tropes present in this game:²* AntiAntiChrist: Eon is the reincarnation of this world's {{Satan}}, the "Mah Oh", from the previous version of the world. However, being adopted by the Old Hermit, he grows up good and just and defeats the current "Mah Oh".²* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: '''Two''' of these. One is against the final boss, naturally, who is a sapient-can-comprehend-mortals JerkAss EldritchAbomination, and earlier, in a MadScientist's castle. The battle is against his experimental world-ending giant creature, and you have to destroy its heart from inside. While you're fighting the heart blood vessels can be 'seen' transparently from above as if you're really looking down into the battlefield, and the entire room pulsates and shifts with his heartbeats. Both trippy and disorienting.²* EldritchAbomination: The final boss, as listed under AmazingTechnicolorPopulation.²* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: The final boss is never mentioned before his first onscreen appearance, [[spoiler:right as your quest was supposed to be over.]]²* TheUnfought: [[spoiler:Slayzer. Despite being the closest thing to TheRival in this game, you never actually fight the guy.]]²----


How well does it match the trope?
