I'm more of a PC gamer myself (and the Wii!) but I know that Deus Ex: Invisible War was ported to the Xbox and it's right up the ATS road.

Conspiracy based storyline with an excellent FPS style to it all nuzzled into a dark and atmospheric plot.

Deus Ex for the PC was even more awesome - but it's not on the Xbox as far as I know.

The prequel is due out later this year (perhaps) and just released a nice lil' video telling us they'll be more details at E3:

Question for you guys?

How does dragon age even work on the console? Do you guys get to control your entire party or did they manage it where you only have to control one person? Also, how do you keybind in that without a keyboard? Uhh I am so confused right now....

I have this game on Xbox as the wife bought on wrong format as a gift -_-. That said it works ok.

Basically in the char option you can setup whats your companions do and when. For example, you can set it so that when they fall below 50% hp they will cast a healing spell or use a potion. You can set your tank to come and taunt your enemy if they lose aggro etc

I was actually pretty impressed with how they did it as you can pretty much set up there routines and have what if scenarios pre set up. Its really clever.

Still wish she had bought on Pc though so I could get mods for it lol

Sorry forgot to answer your key binding question.

You have four buttons on right of controller which can be set with actions and if you hold one of the triggers and use these buttons you have four more actions. You can also you the other trigger to bring up an action wheel and select actions there too.

Hope that helps

Oh ok, that part is in the pc version as well though I found myself constantly pausing to set up individual actions. (they only let you use a few passive abilities and i need the control) You ain't missin much on mods right now as it is still pretty new. I bought it when it came out and have been runnin it wo mods. Kinda wish I was a console gamer for right now. My GPU bricked the other day and now I am runnin a 8500 so gotta get a new one
With only a 400w psu it is gonna be rough.

One more thing, Lost Odyssey has an amazing soundtrack.

I love the way it changes at 1:45, gives me chills.

Boss battle

To the OP, sounds like you've already enjoyed two of the best for it (Oblivion and Fable 2), but DragonAge looks equally engrossing...if you are looking for another alternative... I haven't picked it up yet as I'm still playing Fable 2 (and I typically wait until they go below the $30 price mark on pure principle).

Overlord II (my avatar), is pretty fun too, but only loosely an RPG, really more of a level, boss fight game...but open world, and you can always revisit places, etc. It's a fun game until you get to some of the more stubborn boss fights...but there is a great comedy aspect to the minions...

I'm not much of a console gamer, but I played Mass Effect 1, and it was great. I also have played Morrowind on PC, and I know it exists for Xbox, and that is a pretty good game, too. Both are open world style.

Lost odyssey is good once you get pass the outrageous first boss )toughest fight in game) Elder scrolls IV Oblivion is slightly better than fallout 3 IMO but they're both made by the same company so they're both solid. The 360 is notorious for being weak in the rpg genre. That and breaking down

posted on Apr, 4 2010 @ 07:10 PM
Elder Scrolls 3, the game of the year edition
its old, and not the prettiest, but if you can look past the difficulty and inability to quick travel like oblivion, then youll be playing this game for years.

Just adding in my thoughts about Xbox/360 /PC

I Always have my copy of Morrowind ready to play at a moments notice

I Played that game through to many times to count. I was po,ed that it didn't work int he 360 at first, but now it does. I had 3 copies of this game once, xbox,pc, and xbox goty edition. the original xbox I gave to a friend to play
which later he told me he lent it to one other friend after playing it, I didn't care as long as more people got to play a great game.
The PC version was my wife's but became mine after I installed it on my machine and found TESconstruction (it is map modding and things like that if you didn't know)

I also have Oblivion ready to play, again another game I played to many times through. I bought the 360 version (later on bought the addons on disk)
Wife got it on PC. Later I got a 2nd copy for PC ( again for the modding )

I played Fable 1 / lost chapters on xbox and later got it for pc ( didn't like the feel of it though on pc ) Fable 2 I played a bit but returned it to a friend I borrowed it from, needz my own copy

Blue Dragon, Mass Effect both games I bought , both games I only put a little bit of time in I would like to play them again but the TV I have the 360 hooked up to I can't read the text.

Fallout 3 - I'd like to try it on the 360 , I have it on the PC GotY edition ( includes all expansions ) very good game and woot look at that GECK ( Garden of Eden Creation Kit ) is out there also for modding mapping and such.

I Haven't Found FF13 in any store near me, I would order it off Amazon but when I buy a game I want to play it that day.

Now comes a game I haven't seen others mention ( yet )

I have Sacred 2 collectors edition for PC
I almost got it for 360 but I wanted the pc version first this time.
About Sacred2:
Its a good hack and slash rpg WAY better then the first sacred
but first was still cool, diablo style play example
Sacred 1

Sacred 2
Game play video

3D free form, graphics are very nice

There is 6 classes, 2 parallel campaigns "light and dark"

Deities for extra spell


there is also online play PvE and Pvp ( pc not sure about the 360 )

when installed it takes 25 gb its huge! 22 square miles

Its a love/hate game really you either love it or hate it.

I did have to make a change with the text in game so I could read but
that was the only problem so far.

Which makes me wonder about the 360 version if the text is difficult to read
( like dead rising )

any ways the intro to sacred 2

and yes Blind Guardian ( the band for the music ) is in the game

I really liked Fallout 3

It was a epic game!

posted on Jun, 5 2010 @ 08:17 PM
Yep, I concur - for me it's Oblivion and Fallout 3

I recently got FO3 and am use to using daggers and swords but this game rocks! Once I got use to small guns, I'm enjoying the hell out of it! It's massive!

posted on Jun, 5 2010 @ 08:48 PM
Still waiting and debating whether I want Fallout 3 or not, I may go back and pick up Oblivion it's between that and Fallout for me. Have every other game and still need to finish some from when I first purchased said system..

posted on Jun, 6 2010 @ 07:36 PM
I was never really much of an RPG...the I found fallout 3

For me, its head and shoulders above all other RPG games, you can tailor make your character to suit your type of gameplay. Its such and in depth game

I also recently discovered Mass Effect 2....havent played the first yet, but muight have to get my hands on a copy so I can understand more about it all

Regarding Sacred 2 on Xbox, YES it is very difficult to read. That's my major complaint about this game. Just picked it up tonight so I could play on xbox live with a friend of mine many states away.

Really though, after playing Oblivion and FO3 - I'm feeling kinda "meh" on this game. I'll keep an open mind and give it a chance.

posted on Jun, 25 2010 @ 01:48 AM
It wont beat them but its a great rpg for what it is " hack and slash "

I myself haven't been playing much xbox lately,
I had been sticking with pc lately

But sacred 2 is still a good one
