    A lot of promise, with 1 huge a several noticable flaws

    Two Worlds II

    A lot of promise, with 1 huge a several noticable flaws

    Pros: 1. Any game that can easily engage you for 30+ hours is a good start....reasonably big world with plenty of good quests. 2. Good character customization/ development options (leveling is done well). 3. Magic, ... Read Full Review

    Tales of Vesperia

    2-D rubbish

    I picked this game up as I have played all the good RPG/ Adventure games and this one had the next highest ratings, so I thought it must be reasonably good/ well worth playing....good grief! I played for less than an ... Read Full Review

    Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga

    Odd that you read so little about this game. Better than most of the RPG releases in 2011/12

    Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga

    Odd that you read so little about this game. Better than most of the RPG releases in 2011/12

    I picked this game up after reading player reviews on Metracritic (Gamespot hasn't even reviewed it); glad I did, solid RPG. Good: 1. The first 10 hours or so (until you take the battletower) is some of the most fun ... Read Full Review

    Fallout: New Vegas (Collector's Edition)

    If not for the relatively frequent glitches, this is a better game than Fallout3. In spite of them, its at least as good

    Fallout: New Vegas

    If not for the relatively frequent glitches, this is a better game than Fallout3. In spite of them, its at least as good

    Having recently played Fallout 3, there were no huge surprises here as there were very few changes from a gameplay perspecive. That said: Good: 1. Both the main story line and the side quests are significantly better... Read Full Review

    A very good arcade-type action game; not an RPG and only half-hearted 'adventure' game.

    Assassin's Creed II

    A very good arcade-type action game; not an RPG and only half-hearted 'adventure' game.

    Hmmm, this is an odd one as I admit I haven't played any arcade type games in many, many years. I much prefer RPG and adventure games, but for what it is, its well done. Good: 1. A relatively large world to romp arou... Read Full Review

    Maybe at 1 point this game was unique and fresh....now its just another sci-fi horror game.

    Wow; great game!

    Red Dead Redemption

    Wow; great game!

    I admit I am much more into RPG's than 'action' games, but this game is phenomenal. The storyline focus in the open-world concept is what Elder Scrolls has to figure out, Bad: 1. This is definitely not a loot game; l... Read Full Review

    Really good at everything; not great at anything,

    Fallout 3

    Really good at everything; not great at anything,

    This game is a challenge to rate. It was enjoyable to play, but not nearly as addictive as a great game,,,you know, when you can't get off the couch for 12 hours...when you want to call in sick to work. It does everythin... Read Full Review

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    I think the mistake I often make when rating games is that I tend to rate on a curve using the best games as reference,,,it often makes the scores much too low to be helpful, so I'll rate aginst the average..and where th... Read Full Review

    7.5 rating is a joke; this game is much better than that!

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

    7.5 rating is a joke; this game is much better than that!

    Firstly, only a guy who rated Dark Souls a 9.5 could think this game was significantly worse than Skyrim. He definitely has a fetish for 'dark' games...quite odd. That said, the obvious comparison here is to the last ... Read Full Review

    Better than most games, but not close to ME2

    I played ME2 and ME3 back to back and had such a great time with 2, that it was ineveitable that I would be dissappointed...I wasn't wrong. Good: 1. Combat is still amazingly fun....its probably more fun than #2 as y... Read Full Review

    All round fantastic game!!

    I'll admit the thought of playing what appeared to be a simple shooter game didn't appeal to me; but, as I had run out of other RPG options and the rating of this game was so high (which on Gamespot is hit and miss; 9.5 ... Read Full Review

    One of the best I've played.

    Dragon Age II

    One of the best I've played.

    Although slightly diffeent than the original, I played them within a month of each other and ultimately, this is the slightly better game. Bad: 1. Story does lack a singular 'purpose' in the beginning. To me this is ... Read Full Review

    Wow...this game blows...how it was rated 7.5, when Fable II was 8.5 is beyond reasonable explanation. Good 1. It's predecessor was a fun game. 2. I made it to the end, doing virtually every quest in just over 12 h... Read Full Review

    Fable II

    Not the most serious RPG, but a whole lot of fun.

    Very entertaining game that easily makes up in charm and entertainment what it lacks in 'sophistication'. Bad: 1. From a straight RPG perspective, the combat is very easy...you can't die (for alot of 'serious' game... Read Full Review

    Not even on a curve should this be rated a 9.

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (Enhanced Edition)

    Not even on a curve should this be rated a 9.

    To put this game in the same category as Skyrim is absurd. It's not even as good as Oblivion or Dragon Age Origins. Other than a dark character and swearing, nudity and sex which admittedly is refreshing, this game offer... Read Full Review
