Take a look at what the year ahead has in store for all RPG fans.tech reviews Updated: Feb 23, 2010 01:33 IST
This generation has been harsh as far as Role Playing Games (RPGs) are concerned. Sure we’ve had some great games in Dragon Age: Origins, Fallout 3 and Mass Effect but barring a handful of titles, it’s been slim pickings. However all of that is about to change this year with number of news games coming in.
Final Fantasy XIII — PS3, Xbox360, PC
The game sees you don the role of Lightning and taking on the might of the Cocoon Military in what seems to be the trippiest art-directed FF world yet.
Resonance of Fate — Xbox360, PS3
Packed with stellar gunplay, some interesting exploration options and a wealth of gun customisation, Resonance of Fate is one of the more interesting RPGs this year. Fable 3 (Xbox360)
With a rumoured November release and the ability to import your Fable 2 saves, Fable 3 takes the series a step forward. Not only do you liberate Albion (the staple location of the Fable series) but end up ruling it, giving the game a part hack-and-slash RPG and part-Civilization feel.
Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver — DS
Like the games before it, your character is that of a budding Pokemon trainer setting off on a quest to be the best. Other interesting games that will stay you hooked are: Alpha Protocol — PS3, X360, PC, Fallout: New Vegas — PS3, X360, PC, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm — PC, Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening — PS3, X360, PC, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep — PSP.
