is there any good 3rd person game on xbox 360 that has a long campaign (missions and side missions) and a good story (optional) with fun/good, solid gameplay?

Batman: Arkham Asylum



Agree completely. I was really enjoying it and got side-tracked by another game - still not got back to it but I will now! Cheers

Enslaved, Castlevania, Fable (2,3), Just Cause 2, Mass Effect (1,2), Red Dead.

Third person is a bit general.

got red dead, got batman, got fable 2 and don't want fable 3 or enslaved.
mass effect is a good suggestion i think as is Just Cause 2 but that doesn't have a good or long story does it?
any others?

Original Poster

and batman aint exactly long (in terms of story) but is still really good.

thanks so far

Fallout & oblivion

Before anyone says, I'm pretty sure they both have 3rd person view option.

Just Cause 2 has lots of missions, not too sure about the story. To be honest I've not played much of the actual game as I get side tracked just messing around. Which it is awesome for, as is Saints Row 2.

Vanquish? Lost Planet? Dead Space? Dead Rising? Assassins Creed? Alan Wake?

Haven't personally played Vanquish. Disliked Lost Planet, but I can recommend the rest.

The DLC: Episodes from Liberty City is fun though.

As for Brutal Legend, I thought it was awesome. Up until it awkwardly turned into some kind of RTS game. It's not my kind of game, but it is from the mind of Tim Schafer (Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Psychonauts) so can't all be bad.

Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie on the XBLA.

I just finished Dead Space tonight for the first time - absolutely epic game and scary as hell!

Saboteur, open world 2nd World War game, should last bout 20 hours.
Same with the Assassins Creed games.
Gears Of War 2 horde mode will last for ages too.

brothers in arms : hells highway is long and a good game. very cheap.

got gears, got assassins creed, got fallout, i didn't find the vanquish demo to be that good cuz of the sliding thing and i may wait for dead space 2, having played the demo and i though alan wake was short? don't want saboteur.
i know it sounds as if i am being too picky with all the don't want this and don't like that but i am just looking for a game to play.
is red faction guerilla any good/long??

Banned

borderlands is a massive game

Original Poster

but is the story any good?

Alan Wake is about 12 hours long and the Dead Space demo is rubbish and isn't even in the game.
Haven't played Red Faction.

Original Poster

i'm talking about the dead space 2 demo.
So, so far, i could get:
Red Faction, Just Cause 2, Dead space 2, Borderlands or Mass Effect 2

Original Poster

anyone know the best game from the above?

I loved mass effect 2 so much so that I've just bought the first one second hand. Great story and missions would very much recommend.

dead space 2 isn't out until the end of jan, red faction is fun but gets a bit boring after a while unless you play it online with mates, borderlands is first person and you said you don't want that, just cause 2 is crap imho so go for mass effect 2

OBLIVION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dragon age origins was surprissingly good

deaD SPACE!

Original Poster

is the combat in dragon age a bit slow ie. it takes too long for the sword to actually swing?
also, csiman, are you talking about dead space 2 or dead space 1?
just cause 2 isn't that bad but i played the mass effect 2 demo today and quite enjoyed it. May go for that unless anyone has a better recommendation.
also, what do you lot think is the scariest game on xbox 360?
(including dead space 2, although it isn't out)

Castlevania, Dead Space

anyone who's played them all?

but is the story any good?

storyline wasnt that detailed and the ending wasnt really a definite ending, just felt the storyline didnt have a journey it didnt really travel that much of a distance

monster huneter tri is great but you waste alot of time playing it, dont bother with the wiispeak use a usb keyboard instead its alot better also if you can get a cheap component cable for you wii playin it with a clear picture is better then blurryness

Original Poster

so which do you (or anyone else) think is the best game out of the three?

what the difference between 1st person and 3rd person shooter?

Original Poster

In 3rd person, you see your whole character, whereas in 1st person you see the guns aand arms of your character e.g. COD

dead space!

me2 was pretty but a dull game imo

borderlands was very repetitive even after 2 hours so I gave up on it

dead space oozes class and is in a different league

Original Poster

come on, dead space can't be that good. i like the dead space 2 demo but i also like the mass effect 2 demo so i may go for that as well as monster hunter tri, unless anyone gives me a reason not to (e.g. there are better games or the two i am going to buy aren't that good)
