Top 10 Xbox 360 RPG
The Best Xbox 360 RPG
Welcome to my list of the top 10 Xbox 360 rpg. I have spent many hours playing each of these games and consider them to be some of the best role playing games that you can buy for the Xbox 360.
These games have been rated on several factors, all of which are important to me when I play games.
These factors are:
3) Game Play
5) Replay Value
You will not find any MMORPGs on this list. I consider those games to be in another category than regular rpgs.
I have spent many hours on each of these Xbox 360 role playing games and hope that you may enjoy them as much as I have.

Xbox 360 Role Playing Games Fable II - Top 10 Xbox 360 RPG
Fable II is a fun game that has gone a step above its predecessor. In a world where every choice you make has an effect on the world around you, you must overcome many hardships during the lifetime of your character.
You begin the game as a penniless street urchin who is just trying to survive in a world filled with cruelty and despair. Throughout many quests the land of Albion will begin to change. Will it be for good or evil? The choice is yours!
The usual three character strengths are available to be chosen. You can level up your strength skill to do more damage with physical attacks and take less damage. Skill experience is gained by using guns and bows. Magic experience is gained by using any of the different magic spells that are available. The more you use a skill the stronger it becomes.

Lost Odyssey follows the journey of an immortal man named Kiam Argonar. He has lost his memory and has wandered the world for 1000 years, not knowing his purpose.
After some great opening cut-scenes, in which Kiam is one of the only survivors of a meteor impact, players will begin an epic journey across a war torn world filled with magic and monsters. During the game players will learn the pain that come with being immortal and discover why the immortals exist.
Kiam is joined by several other companions, some immortal and some mortal. The characters have been wonderfully brought to life with an excellent voice cast and CG cut-scenes.

During the video review he will say that there is loading issues. I am not sure if they just had a bad console or Mistwalker Studios has addressed the problem, but I had no issues with loading times during my play-through with this game.
Xbox 360 Role Playing Games Final Fantasy XIII - Top 10 Xbox 360 RPG
This was an amazing Xbox 360 game. Unlike most titles in the Final Fantasy series, the game game did not revolve around one main character.
Instead, the story is told from the perspective of each character and the party as a whole. During each chapter a little bit of each characters backstory is told until you feel like you know them.
Final Fantasy XIII starts off in a floating city called Cocoon. Soldiers are stuffing people into trains to lead them to their death. This is called "The Purge".
As some helpless people are being roughed up a bit too much by the soldiers, a mysterious woman throws off her white mage type cloak and proceeds to thoroughly whoop the soldiers into submission.

From the creators of Mass Effect 2 and Knights of the Old Republic comes yet another amazing game where every choice you make has drastic consequences on the world around you. When you buy this Xbox 360 role playing game from Amazon, you get a free expansion pack with an extra downloadable character and additional quests.
