    Once modded, this is the best RPG you will have ever played

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Once modded, this is the best RPG you will have ever played

    Mod-free, this game gets a 7/10 from me. Once modded, this game becomes brilliant. I wanted to give Oblivion a great score right out of the box, I really did, but I just cannot accept that Bethesda feels they did an ... Read Full Review

    Same complaint as with Morrowind: In a game this gorgeous, there is no excuse for such ugly npc models and voices.

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Same complaint as with Morrowind: In a game this gorgeous, there is no excuse for such ugly npc models and voices.

    For the amazingly excellent review that this game deserves, please see my review of it for the PC. I wanted to give Oblivion for the Xbox360 a great score, I really did, but I just cannot accept that Bethesda feels th... Read Full Review

    An excellent RPG. The system requirements are massive, but it's worth it. I haven't played around with the toolset yet..

    Neverwinter Nights 2

    An excellent RPG. The system requirements are massive, but it's worth it. I haven't played around with the toolset yet..

    Neverwinter Nights 2 is a solid RPG. However, there are some minor things that can cause a lot of aggravation when you add them all up. Gameplay Positives: Everything you've come to expect from a Bioware/Obsidian RPG.... Read Full Review

    An enjoyable expansion with an interesting plot, but they tried too hard to make it feel "epic/high-level"

    Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of The Betrayer

    An enjoyable expansion with an interesting plot, but they tried too hard to make it feel "epic/high-level"

    The same fantastic graphics as NWN2. The same solid gameplay, including some new race/class/prestige class options. Add in the "Epic-Level" options for playing a character that's higher than 20th level, and there are som... Read Full Review

    No customization options  = tiny game world, too much water, and too many nations to share what little land mass exists

    Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution

    No customization options = tiny game world, too much water, and too many nations to share what little land mass exists

    Whoa! It's rare that I disagree with one of GameSpot's reviews, but I have to veer well away from them on this one. I tried as hard as I could not to let my experience with Civ4 on the PC cloud my review of this game, bu... Read Full Review

    Beyond Divinity

    At the time, this might have been an adequate filler while we all waited for the real RPG's to start coming out. But....

    As it stands, this game is a horrible waste of time. Gameplay Positives: Like most RPG's, you get a good mix of choices at character creation. i.e. Fighter-focused, Mage-focused, or Thief-focused, and can then alloca... Read Full Review

    Sick of the myriad fantasy MMO's bombarding the market? The Matrix Online is the answer. Possibly the best MMO to date.

    The Matrix Online

    Sick of the myriad fantasy MMO's bombarding the market? The Matrix Online is the answer. Possibly the best MMO to date.

    I'll have to admit. I had my reservations when I heard they were making an MMO based on the Matrix Trilogy. I mean, how could they possibly capture the stylish look and feel of the movies, as well as the amazing special ... Read Full Review

    Update - The best graphics and PvP of any MMORPG to date. Level grind is improving, but player-run economy is horrendous

    Lineage II: The Chaotic Chronicle

    Update - The best graphics and PvP of any MMORPG to date. Level grind is improving, but player-run economy is horrendous

    Simply stated, this is a graphically-stunning game that has a few minor annoyances but will only get better and better over time. Since I first wrote this review, there have been 2 major expansions/updates to the game th... Read Full Review

    This is an expansion pack, not a sequel! Do not expect anything new! Shame on Snowblind for passing it off as a sequel.

    Champions: Return to Arms

    This is an expansion pack, not a sequel! Do not expect anything new! Shame on Snowblind for passing it off as a sequel.

    When I saw that Snowblind was putting out a sequel to the best action rpg on the PS2, I was severely stoked. I had visions of a cool new storyline, new playable races and classes, amazing new locales, and awesome new arm... Read Full Review

    An amazing game, especially if you're a fan of the pen & paper version. This game exhibits some amazing potential.

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

    An amazing game, especially if you're a fan of the pen & paper version. This game exhibits some amazing potential.

    For fans of White Wolf's Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop rpg, it's been a long wait for another computer rpg based on the franchise. The last one was Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption. VtMR was an unbelievably good g... Read Full Review

    Rumble Roses

    Let's see....gorgeous graphics...skimpy latex outfits....not a half bad game....I'll give it a C+

    Rumble Roses, like Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball, is another one of those guilty pleasure games that actually has some merit as a game as well. Unfortunately, unlike DOAXBV, its gameplay could (and should) have ... Read Full Review

    Diablo

    The progenitor of the action rpg genre. This classic game is a must own for any fan of fantasy gaming.

    This brilliant game started it all back in the 90's. Because of Diablo, companies realized they could release a graphically rich, 3rd person rpg that would still appeal to fans of the fast-paced, real-time kill, kill, ki... Read Full Review

    Some minor content additions take the form of side quests and a barely expanded map. Not enough to make it great.

    Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast

    Some minor content additions take the form of side quests and a barely expanded map. Not enough to make it great.

    Reviewer's Tilt: The Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, while innovative in that it successfully introduces the concept of expansion packs (previous attempts for other pc rpg's failed miserably) to the PC RPG mark... Read Full Review

    Baldur's Gate

    The revolutionary game that revitalized the PC RPG. A classic!

    Back when Baldur's Gate first came out. The computer RPG as a genre was in a drastic downward spiral. First-Person Shooters and Real-Time Strategy games were the order of the day. For RPG fanatics who can't stand FPS and... Read Full Review

    Champions of Norrath

    The magnificent evolution of Diablo-esque games. A few unnecessary bugs are the only drawbacks.

    After finishing Champions of Norrath, I realized that I still owned Diablo and Diablo II. The first words out of my mouth were "What's the point?" Champions of Norrath has everything that Diablo fans salivated over - Gre... Read Full Review

    Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball

    Shamelessly targeted to a specific demographic? Undeniably. Looking beyond that, is it a good game? Absolutely, but.....

    There's always a "but", isn't there? I'll get to that in a second. The overall jist of DOAXBV is the displaying of the female characters from the Dead or Alive fighting games in the most revealing and explicit manner pos... Read Full Review

    The best 3D hand-to-hand game on the market, but there is room for improvement.

    Dead or Alive 3 (Classics)

    The best 3D hand-to-hand game on the market, but there is room for improvement.

    Dead or Alive 3 is the best hand-to-hand fighter game on the market, hands down. The incorporation of multi-tiered combat environments and stunning lush graphics outclass the competition completely. The only other fighte... Read Full Review

    Fable

    A feast for the senses, Fable delivers the exciting, well-designed rpg that Xbox fans have been waiting for.

    At first glance, Fable is a very good rpg. The graphics are outstanding; the music, voice talent, and sound effects are superb, and the script delivers an exciting story (albeit somewhat rpg-standard) that gives you just... Read Full Review
