Perhaps Microsoft’s most popular game console is the Xbox 360. Due to the infamous difficulty of working with the PlayStation 3, it was the primary platform for many non-exclusive developers. It has a wide variety of exclusives. But when it comes to the biggest games in the system, the Halo and Gears of War series would probably come to mind first. Cross-platform games like Call of Duty, Ghost Recon, and Rainbow Six have found great success on the system, making it the go-to console for shooters. While it’s easy to think of the Xbox 360 as an FPS platform, Microsoft’s system offered a solid selection of titles across all genres. The ordinary player might have missed a surprising number of hidden treasures the first time around as a result.
Xbox did very well in Japan compared to PlayStation 3 and Wii. Microsoft was able to secure a number of exclusive Japanese RPGs for the Xbox 360 in an effort to increase its appeal outside Western countries.
Infinite Undiscovery was an action role-playing game that fell under the radar due to mixed reviews. It was created by Tri-Ace, the studio behind the Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile series. This was probably caused by the laborious beginning and the cheesy setting. But those who persevere at the slow start of the game will find a very good RPG. The standard Tri-Ace combat system is a complete pleasure to use, and at 20-30 hours the plot doesn’t drag on unnecessarily.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Ken Rolston, lead designer of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Todd McFarlane and R.A. Salvatore formed the dream team that created Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning for 38 Studios.
Unfortunately, Kingdoms of Amalur’s economic failure caused the studio’s demise in 2012. It’s a shame, because the Elder Scrolls and arcade-style hack and slashing were well combined in the game, despite the fact that it was quite conventional and borrowed a lot of ideas. previous RPGs.
Criminal Origins: Convicted
Monolith Productions, arguably most renowned for its most recent work on the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor series, created Condemned: Criminal Origins as an Xbox 360 launch release. It was a horror game which may have been overlooked in favor of Perfect Dark, another Xbox 360 launch exclusive. Condemned had dramatic lighting and ambient visual effects that made for some seriously spooky moments. Plus, it’s still one of the few first-person shooters that executes melee combat perfectly.
Risen, an open-world role-playing game series created by Piranha Bytes, is seen as the gothic franchise’s good replacement. Risen is a very difficult yet complex game that appeals to the most ardent RPG enthusiasts, just like the Gothic series.
Players are thrown into a brutal open environment with little to no guidance, and it’s extremely unforgiving. Some people may find this off-putting, and the rather clunky combat system doesn’t help. However, Risen has a retro charm and feel reminiscent of timeless games like Ultima and the Gothic series. Perhaps most importantly, the unpredictable nature of the planet gives it a distinctive and dynamic feel.
Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga Developers After the release of Divinity: Original Sin II, Larian Studios was able to solidify its status as one of the most talented game developers in the world. However, Larian’s Divinity series for PC and Xbox 360 already had a cult fan base. The Dragon Knight Saga, which includes a director’s cut of Divinity II and its Flames of Vengeance expansion, was released by the company in 2009. The Dragon Knight Saga is a massive overall experience that can take players up to 100 hours to complete. Although it uses the same graphics engine as Oblivion, the game’s Rivellon setting is steeped in culture and history and has more in common with Diablo and Baldur’s Gate. For fans of the Original Sin series, Divinity II is now backwards compatible on Xbox One and a must-have.
