Great fantasy action RPG's like dragon age 2.

9 replies 7763 views Edited May 24, 2012

I LOVED dragon age 2. Its been one of the best games ive ever played. I disliked it repetitiveness but the action and fast paced fighting made up for it for me. I hated skyrim and am not a fan of the elder skrolls series. I like white knight chronicles a bit but not enough to try the part II. I'm looking for suggestions on good games to try out.

I guess i'm more of a fan of "team" based action rpg's like dragon age and white knight. I'm also a fan of the star ocean series and final fantasies.

Can anyone suggest a game that would be right for me?

If you dig the more action-oriented battle system, Tales of Graces F has released in the past few months. The game uses a combo-based Star Ocean-like battle system where you take on enemies with your AI or friend-operated teammates. You can have a friend sit with you on the game to combat the enemies if you wish.

There's only one Star Ocean to release on the PlayStation 3, but as per usual it's a good one. Star Ocean: The Last Hope International is worth playing if you haven't gotten it yet. Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2 are the two Final Fantasy games to have made it in the PlayStation 3 generation as well.

As for other RPG titles, there's Resonance of Fate, a semi-turn-based effort that hands the characters guns to deal damage. In Marvel Ultimate Alliance along with a friend you can carry a team of superheroes through enemy lairs. Dragon's Dogma is just coming out itself, wherein you go against fabled creatures such as dragons and a chimera.

Dragon Age: Origins

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (not team based but great game)

while I thought Dragon Age II was a train wreck,

Dragon age Origins was excellent. if you're a fan of "team" based RPG's you

really want to check out Dragons Dogma it's excellent and your team is Vastly

more important then either Dragon Age game, as is the Pawns A.I.

Sorry to troll but I saw the name of this thread and it made me laugh.

I have to ask what other RPG's have you played? I only ask because IMO if you think DA2 was one of the best games you've ever played you obviously have not played many good WRPG's.

So this post has some relevance Dragon Age Origins but if you think DA2 was really good then you might not like DAO......one because the fighting is not faced paced.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I think i might take a look at dragons dogma.

@johntown: Ive played a lot of RPG's.Ive finished most of the Final fantasies from 7 to 14. 14 being the online version which im still playing. I also tried skyrim but the lousy action and lack of entertaining plot bored me. Ive finished both the DA's, although i preferred the 2nd. I can understand why you all hate it. The repetitiveness can be sickening and the fact that you couldnt level up to as high as you wanted due to the lack of people to fight was annoying. I still really enjoyed the game anyway.

You might like Dragon's Dogma. It just came out and it's vast and open-world like Skyrim but has a much more fun combat system. It's not a perfect game, and has some odd issues but I am having quite a bit of fun with it.

Kingdoms of Amalur or Nier. both are more action-orientated in their combat.
