    Finally, a REAL Story Driven MMO.

    Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn

    Finally, a REAL Story Driven MMO.

    I've played most if not all MMO's on release since the original Everquest, and I can honestly say that of the most recent batch of MMOs to come out, this one is holding my interest like no other. Let me start by sayin... Read Full Review

    GW2 takes the best pieces of the genre and leaves the rest.

    Guild Wars 2

    GW2 takes the best pieces of the genre and leaves the rest.

    For once, a company has sat down before coding and done their homework as to what makes a genre fun and what makes it tedious. Is it revolutionary? Well no, not really, as most of the gameplay mechanics here have been ... Read Full Review

    Great story and voice acting are spoiled by bad pacing, monotony, and genre cliches.

    Star Wars: The Old Republic

    Great story and voice acting are spoiled by bad pacing, monotony, and genre cliches.

    I want to start by saying that I wanted to love this game, I really did. However, after trying my hardest to do so, I just find myself wanting to log out and play something more interesting. So, what went wrong? Wel... Read Full Review

    Like Living a Second 'Fantasy' Life

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Like Living a Second 'Fantasy' Life

    Look past the not-perfect control issues and the minor bugs on the PC version and there is a fantastic game underneath. A game so huge and ambitious in it's undertaking yet still managing to meet expectations. Skyrim... Read Full Review

    Deep, mature story and a super-cool protagonist make this the best RPG in years.

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    Deep, mature story and a super-cool protagonist make this the best RPG in years.

    What's not to love about this game? It has a mature, deep story, interesting characters (especially the super-cool protagonist), great combat and path development, superb graphics and top notch voice acting. Some peo... Read Full Review

    How did I miss out on this for so long?

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar

    How did I miss out on this for so long?

    I purchased this game when it was released, but was kind of MMO'd out at the time, so didn't play that much. Coming back to it now, I'm amazed at the depth of content, the fantastic graphics and the artwork. This wor... Read Full Review

    Radiant Historia

    A reluctant buy that surprised me on many levels.

    I was reluctant to pick this one up because I'm not really a fan of the cutesy 2D graphical RPG's, mainly because I've been stung too many times by mediocre storylines and bad writing. However, this game surprised me on... Read Full Review

    Dragon Quest IX: Hoshizora no Mamoribito

    Packs a LOT of content into one cart.

    This game is fantastic. I've finished the main story (which in itself was great), but there's still so much more to do. Downloadable quests, treasure hunting, item alchemy, multiplayer, unlockable professions. The m... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect 2

    A huge improvement over it's predecessor, which was in itself a great game.

    Mass Effect (hereby referred to as ME) was a good game, though I never classed it as a great game due to it's technical difficulties, poor inventory system and confusing role-playing elements. ME2 has fixed all of the... Read Full Review

    Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

    Good game, but not great.

    Characters, production and story are excellent, though in true Final Fantasy style sometimes a little confusing and unexplainable. Main character is very cool, and the graphics, animation and sound all round are superb.... Read Full Review

    One of the Best Games Ever Made.

    One of the Best Games Ever Made.

    I have just finished this game after about 80 hours of gameplay, and I must say that this is quite possibly the best game I have ever played. It keeps all the best parts of the RPG genre, but infuses it with a great s... Read Full Review

    Great pick-up-and-play RPG.

    I just finished this game a couple of weeks ago and, while not revolutionary, I had a lot of fun playing it. The thing I like the most is that it's easy to just pick up and play for 15-30 minutes at a time and still h... Read Full Review
