Here are ten RPGs with excellent combat systems, listed in no particular order. In this list, I’ll focus on including more underrated and hidden RPGs than the well-known and mainstream.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War
As the name suggests, shadow of war takes place in Middle-earth, which is the Lord of the Rings universe. Unlike the previous game, Shadow of Mordor, shadow of war has more RPG elements and an excellent customizable combat system. There are a variety of beautiful and powerful weapons and armor to choose from. Combat has seen a big improvement over the previous game. This combat system is similar to the Batman: Arkham games, but it’s much more brutal.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning
Kingdoms of Amalur was originally released in 2012 and it recently got a remaster named Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. This game is quite underrated and deserves more attention. The game is flawed in some sections, but that doesn’t stop the game from having good RPG elements and an excellent combat system. The weapons and armor in this game are more fantasy oriented than realistic. You can play as a mage, ranged warrior, heavily armored juggernaut, fast and deadly assassin and more.
Dragon Age: Origins
The battle system of Dragon Age: Origins is quite different from the other entries on this list, with an emphasis on strategy, teamwork, and tactics rather than real-time combat. You have a group with various abilities and you must strategically plan each of your attacks. There are several classes, weapons and armor to choose from. Dragon Age: Origins is also one of the greatest RPGs ever made, and that unique and awesome combat system is the icing on the cake.
Everyone knows about the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077 and this incident caused countless gamers to lose faith in the developer, CD Projekt RED. But now the developers have almost completely fixed the game. I consider CP2077 to be one of the best RPGs, and its combat system is based on gunplay and melee combat with various weapons, ranging from katanas to machine guns . You can greatly customize your character and weapons/armor. And the game also goes on sale from time to time.
Discover CDPR’s masterpiece, The Witcher 3, as well. While it doesn’t have as good a combat system as the others on this list, it’s a must-play video game.
Yakuza: like a dragon
Unlike the previous Yakuza Games, like a dragon is turn-based. You can also change your party’s fighting styles. This combat system is very consistent and tight. It’s an absolutely wonderful game.
Deadly Shell is a soulsborne-like an indie RPG. The game is very grotesque and beautiful in its own way. Although there aren’t as many weapons to choose from as in the souls Games, Deadly ShellThe fight is very good. The lore and the world are also well constructed. There are also innovative features in the combat system. More soulsborne fans will enjoy this game.
In simple terms, NieR: Automata is an absolute masterpiece and a work of art. Everything about this game is near perfect, with a philosophical and masterful story, a gorgeous open world and lore, and of course, the great combat system. It’s fast and very elegant. This is considered one of the greatest action RPGs by critics and gamers. You can use ranged attacks and melee attacks to knock down your enemies. And the main character is one of the most beloved protagonists in video game history. You don’t want to miss this masterpiece.
Elden Ring and the Soulsborne Franchise
There’s not much to say about the recently released masterpiece, Ring of Elden. It has the best combat system of all souls Games. Simply put, it shines in every way. If you liked Ring of Eldenbe sure to check out the other soulsborne games: The Dark Souls Trilogy, Demon’s Soulsand transmitted by blood. Players love all these games and combat is the main focus.
I would like to include Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice as an honorable mention (read our full review here). Unlike the setting of Western locations in souls Games, sekiro takes place in the Sengoku era, Japan. Although there are not many RPG elements in sekiro, it has arguably the best combat system of any From Software game. Both soulsborne games and sekiro are brutally punishing, yet rewarding games.

Nioh and Nioh 2
nioh is an action RPG set in Japan, where you have to fight various creatures from Japanese mythology. You can choose from a wide range of weapons, including Katana swords, spears, bows, axes, and more. nioh isn’t completely open world, but open levels are fun to explore. It’s a tight and satisfying yet incredibly punishing combat system.
Dragon’s Dogma: Darth Arisen
the dogma of the dragon has one of the best combat systems ever found in a game. It feels tight, cohesive, and satisfying. You can climb over giant enemies and attack their weak spots, you can pick up and throw small enemies like a juggernaut beast, and you can use magic skills that will make the battlefield feel like a testing ground. nuclear. You can organize a party of your choice and they fight as skillfully as you do. Most other RPGs fail to create combat as intense and action-packed as Dragon’s Dogma: Darth Arisen. And the last boss fight of this game will leave you speechless, believe me!
