The selection of role playing games for the 360 is very slim. Other than this all you basically have is Fantasy Star Universe and Elder Scroll's Oblivion. Of these, only this one can really be compared to say a Final Fantasy type rpg. This game is rather fun, the story pretty good and the fighting rather good as well. It is turn based, using a grid system as depending on what attack you do the more squares on the grid are colored and the more enemies you damage. Works rather good and it is more fun to me than a action rpg when there are lots of characters to control. Here you can control a heck of a lot of characters, though most are going to be creatures called golems...in the end I found it easier to just use the main hero characters. The story has a youth in a magic type university accidentally awakening a creature called a Devil Golem. This Golem harvests the power of ice and is in fact called the Queen of Ice. Atsuma (the main character) must travel the lands and attempt to stop her goals and ambitions, though her actions seem to suggest she wishes Atsuma to try and stop her. If this is not bad enough she has taken Atsuma's best bud Toya as her puppet and power source. You meet other characters along with other Devil Golems and a really annoying emperor all in your quest to defeat the Queen of Ice. All in all rather good, not super difficult to play and the graphics are gorgeous, the American voices at times are a bit annoying, but overall an enjoyable albeit nothing original game.
