    If you haven’t played either of the predecessors to Jak 3, it’s highly recommended that you do so before playing through this one, or at least Jak II that is.

    While Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves is a great game, it still features a few things that could have been done better, such as the multiplayer or the 3-D, which probably should have just of been left out.

    One of the most unique games to hit all the systems. Aside from not being very long, everything else in the game works wonders, whether it be the soundtrack, graphics, or controls.

    While lacking a great storyline and a camera in the game that could have been so much better, these are things that can be easily overlooked when you consider all the fun gameplay options available to you.

    The least flawed of all the MMORPGs presently out.

    Persona 2 is a large game. With a lengthy main quest, plenty of side quests, replay incentives, and even a bonus dungeon available from cleared data, there's no shortage of things to do and discover.

    Rogue Galaxy features a great artistic style with bright colors and a lot of detail.

    I thought this game was fantastic. It kept me entertained for many hours, and it is a game that I am sure I will revisit many times.

    While "X-Men Legends: Rise of Apocalypse" might have some problems, the option to play as Magneto and the rest of the Brotherhood is an excellent addition to an already interesting game.

    If you are looking for a radically new and innovative gaming experience, steer clear of Neverwinter Nights 2. This is very much like a second helping of Neverwinter Nights, albeit a tad longer and more complex. Which, come to think of it, ain’t such a bad thing after all.

    Whether you’re a comic book fan, RPG lover, or someone with a passion for multiplayer gaming, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is exactly what you’re looking for.

    When it comes down to it, Digital Devil Saga 2 really isn't that different from the original.

    Highly recommended for a fan of the genre, someone who loves the gothic style of gaming or just anyone who wants to add another Dante-related game into their collection. Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is a must have.

    All in all, Puzzle Quest is an addictive experience that should easily please both the hardcore and casual gamer. The enjoyable puzzle-style gameplay and the easy learning curve also make it a great way to introduce newcomers to the RPG genre.

    While the games co-op play is an excellent addition, the decrease in weaponry, platforming and overall use of Clank seems a little odd for the series.

    It is amazing how many different stats go into the Phantom Brave.

    Its adult themes might raise eyebrows amongst some players, but after the world of Temeria draws them in to its clutches they’ll find a riveting storyline in an immersive world that creates one of the most memorable RPG experiences of recent years.

    All said, the nasty, evil puzzles gave me a terrible impression while struggling through the games mid-section, but the last chapter and the game's humor saved it from a dismal grade.

    It is a rare thing in this age of sequels and franchises to see a new IP stand out so boldly, and although it was a calculated risk, Ubisoft should be applauded for blazing a new trail.

    It’s not an adventure that’s going to blow gamers away, but for hardcore Oblivion lovers like myself, it gives us an excuse to keep on playing!

    It offers a good game length, nice graphics, lots of strategy, deep customization, and fun combat.

    A little slow at times, and it's one of the harder Playstation games I can think of. Along with the linearity of the game, these features may turn a lot of gamers away from Parasite Eve before it's been given a fair chance...[But w]ith groundbreaking graphics and a great style of gameplay, Parasite Eve has become a classic that no RPG fan should be without.

    Expecting a quick stroll down memory lane, I instead found myself renewing my long forgotten obsession with Pokémon. A must-buy for any past or present fans of Pokémon, and should definitely be considered by any RPG fan.

    The story is almost insulting until nearly the end, I didn’t like the characters, and combat was by and large pretty boring with all too many encounters.

    With a few changes, an interesting story, and a great presentation, Soul Reaver 2 carries on much of the same greatness of the original.

    I would have to say the single feature that most caught my attention would have to be the emotional points. Started in the original Star Ocean game, it has been honed and perfected in the sequel (I am told it's better in the next in the series).

    Baten Kaitos has more than just a story. It features a strangely intuitive battle system built around decks of cards called Magnus.

    A gameplay experience in the 20-60 hour range...That said, the debilitating single-player deficiencies, along with the outrageous hardware requirements for multiplayer caused my rating to take a significant hit downward.

    An ambitious effort, and a definite success. Conveying an interesting story with beautiful graphics, great voice acting, a nice soundtrack, and a tight control scheme, very few flaws are to be found in SpellForce 2.
