    Tales of Vesperia is such a beautiful game. My only real issue with it is that when you've been defeated, you can't just go back, skip those looong scenes and fight the boss again straight away, you have to sit through it all again. And whilst hearing Yuri complain about missing Blastia cores might be interesting and relevant to the storyline the first two or three times you hear it, it does get old rather quickly.

    I still definitely recommend it, though :yep:

    Definitely Lost Odyssey if you like Final Fantasy.

    And Fallout 3 is NOT limited, it's got just as much to do as Oblivion.

    Holding X+B together gets through the cutscene dialogue more quickly.

    Alternatively, don't die :p:

    O rly? I guess that serves me right for never reading through the manuals properly :o:

    I can't help it! I've found everything easy so far, but I cannot for the life of my get past the Goliath in the Shaikos Ruins. I keep hitting the Achilles' Heel, and I changed the strategy so that Estelle stays back so that she can heal people but she still manages to get flattened every time, and when she's dead, I die pretty soon after. Bah :sad:

    In fact sorry, that's X+A. It's not something in the manual, just a trick that makes each speech 'bubble' close as quickly as it can.

    If you're really having trouble, you might need to level up a bit, buy/synth some better equipment, or just stock up on healing items. If all else fails, you could just bump the difficulty down to easy for that battle.

    Does any of the advice here help at all? That's a boss guide covering the whole game, so don't scroll down too far if you want to avoid spoilers. It's quite a while since I fought that boss, so I'm afraid I can't remember any specific tips myself.

    BTW, aren't you going to vote for ToV in the poll?

    OK I've played ToV for a few more hours and now actually LOVE this game! Its funny, interesting and nice to play and it really grows on you the more you play.
    I'm at:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Torim Harbour, the second time after they start their guild and reunite with Raven.

    and loving it! I hope they keep the cutscene-dungeon ratio as it is now (plenty of cutscenes, then a challenging dungeon). I can't say if I like it better than Lost Odyssey because I adored that game too, but this is definitely becoming one of my favourite JRPGs of this generation.

    Glad you've been converted

    I'm right at the last boss now - I don't really want it to end! At least I know that there's plenty that I've missed for another play-through!

    Played Eternal Sonata (was alright until the ending which is quite dire, Gameplay is good and Story is 'meh' ) currently playing Lost Odyssey and i really like very interesting story to a point where you interested in each characters past, Hopefully after this ill play Tales which ive only heard good things about.

    Hey everyone thanks for the recommendations!!
    I decided on Lost Odyssey - £13 in Gamestation so not bad!
    Loving the story of the game and the battles are fine.
    But did anyone else find it abit odd that talking to people in towns and stuff doesn't really help with the game? You can still just blast through the town because you know you will be auto transported to the next place anyway.
    Kind of reminds me of Fable 2 in that sense which was a massive let down.

    Ah one final thing, why is the game four discs long? took me about 6/7hours to complete the first disc....

    (I'm about 14-16hours in, can't quite remember :p: , so if the game changes dramatically later on then don't let me know exactly, just give vague and broad teasers please )

    Im about 17 hours in on Disc 2 and i realised to that theres not much on a disc compared to Eternal sonata which was all one disc and took me 30 hours to complete, but the big difference is cut scenes theres loads of them and nearly all the text is voice recorded to so i guess that takes loads of disc space...

    With the talking with people bit i didnt really mind it as much but i did miss it, in terms of Fable 2 i think thats where it differs is that Fable 2 imo was not an RPG at all, it was perfect but like every RPG element to it was taken to away or stripped down. Personally im loving LO atm apart from its leveling up system specifically the fact that when you get to a certain level you aquire little/no xp from fights which is annoying as im someone who will grind through dungeons repeatedly to be uber strong for the next boss...

    What JRPG would everyone recommend for a newbie to the genre? I've never played one before, and kinda get confused by the look of most of the battle systems etc, but want to try out these sort of games.

    So what would you say was the more 'newbie-friendly' JRPG (for the 360)?

    Thanks for any help

    Hey everyone any ideas on what the best RPG's for xbox are and why?
    I already have and enjoy Oblivion but despised Fallout due to its limited nature. Normally I am much more into JRPG's and my favourite game of all time is Final Fantasy VII.
    So recommend away please

    Edit: Also no Mass Effect or Fable 2 please. I found Mass Effect bland and Fable 2 faintly ridiculous that 'dying' didn't do much except scar you for which you could get a potion to remove anyway lol

    Up to now it appears Lost Odyssey is winning
    Just about to say - why didnt you include Mass Effect in this poll? Clearly the best RPG game on the 360, best I have played in years. Madness.

    Still though, I was in the market for another RPG and looks like you guys have given Lost Odyssey a good recommendation, I might try it...worth getting on a budget of £60? I can only afford a couple more games for a long time.
