Top Xbox 360 Role Playing Games of 2010
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top role playing games of 2010, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
Flames of Judgment is a solid, but somewhat disappointing addition to the selection of SRPGs XBLA and PSN currently have on offer.
Kasumi, and this DLC, is nothing more than a disappointing distraction. Is it worth the cash? Probably, just about, if you're in love with Mass Effect 2?
Alpha Protocol sounds incredibly alluring, combining the best elements of the RPG and action genres with a refreshing concept. In executing that concept, however, the game falls apart at the seams.
You can't escape the feeling that, in trimming the fat from the series, Square Enix has nicked FFXIII's bone. It's not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination; but it's too linear.
RPG fans who lean towards story and character development may want to stick with Final Fantasy, but for those willing to try something different, Resonance of Fate could be just the ticket.
Dragon Age enthusiasts should consider Awakening an essential purchase. It offers more of the same - no bad thing - in a great value package.
Molyneux's fervent quest for accessibility might alienate some core gamers, but even the most cynical of critics would struggle to suppress a smile while playing Fable III.
Despite the numerous bugs, New Vegas is a magnificent RPG, one that stands head and shoulders above its predecessor. More importantly, it's also the game that Fallout fans have been waiting for.
If you enjoy rich worlds, interesting stories and endearing characters, I implore you: don't let this pass you by.
Mass Effect 2 is the perfect fusion of the shooter and RPG genres. When you're not playing it, you wish you were. When you are playing it, you can't imagine doing anything else. Engrossing. Stunning.
