- 16PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 23, 2013.
Developer: CapcomThis game has the best character creation in a console game! Many elements that make it like Skyrim. More dungeon crawling than Skyrim. Quests can be done or ignored. Some rules concerning the trading system with other players. Unique pawn system which requires befriending people on your Xbox 360 or PS3. End game goals. Easy, Medium, and Hard modes with different benefits. The monsters in this game come to life on the screen! Best mob UI I've seen in any game anywhere. Character movements are fluid and skill ups make your character practically dance in battle.
