Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Almost two years later and its STILL addicting
I must have gotten the console version of this game a couple of years ago. I played it for hours and hours... 8 hours straight was the norm, when I was on my weekend. After several weeks I finally finished the game, and put it down. Went onto other games. Diablo III, things like that. Recently, I've gotten tired of the D3 grind, so I decided to pop the KoA:R disc in and start a new character last week. Result? I'm back to losing track of time completely when playing this game. There are SO many side quests and things to do and see, its just a lot of fun. I am going to commit sacrilage and say that its better than Skyrim to me. I really tried to like Skyrim because all my friends do, but I just couldn't take the depressing graphics. Reckoning has dark and light imagery, magic and cool fighting modes. My favorite weapon are the Faeblades. You whip through stuff like crazy. Anyway, figured I'd write this review for someone who might have been curious about the game but never tried it. The demo is still out there, but believe me, the demo only shows a brief glimmer of what this game offers. Best 20 bucks you'll ever spend.
Like fable but for playstation
Kinda reminded me of fable and skyrim. love it and wished that the studio that made it didn't close down. i'd love a sequel
I thought this game's combat system was amazing, very fun to kill things.The blacksmithing, sage crafting, and alchemy was a cool edition for character customization. I love to get creative in games and make my character and build it up, make it stronger, level up and get new gear. This game let me do that easily one of my top 10 favorite games overall and top 3 RPGs.
1 of the BEST action RPG's ever
Gameplay wise this game is top notch, there's not many close or better. It's colorful, the area's are vast, customizing your character is a lot of fun, their's a lot of different enemies to encounter, and a lot of unique weapons to acquire. Playing the game through more than once is just as fun with the different character classes. ENJOY
Totally worth it!
game is a mix of a couple of the great games that are out there. Mix God of War / World of Warcraft / and Elder Scrolls and you get Kingdoms of amalur. The game plays extremely well controls are easy to pick up for the most part. The story line and side quest will keep you busy for at least 100 hours and the crafting system is simple yet when used correctly can weild some sick gear. Def worth picking up for 40 bucks!!
Cross between dragon age and fable
This game is an awesome RPG! The gameplay and graphics are stunning. The pros of this game is you can play over 50+ on just one playthrough because after the first one you will want to play again. Also the combat system is pretty good which adds the the greatness of this game. I also like the storyline of this game as well as the quests you can do in this game. This game was meant to be am MMO but they changed it I like the style of it because I used to play WoW and those types but for others i might be different. Now for the cons, first of all EA are abusing the online codes pass stuff *** because they have it for a single player game and they said it adds to the game but still for the used game players it add 10 bucks and they might as well just get the new version...luckily for me the owner of this game when i bought it had 2 passes in it one for mass effect 3 and one for this game.
Wow! Great Game! Kicks Major Butt!
So I wanted to buy this game and have nothing but great things about it. Watched a few IGN reviews, and saw the graphics were kind of World Of Warcraft like. So I decided 40$ Is really nothing to spend on a game! After at minimum of 20 minutes I was hooked! What seemed like 5 minutes was 3 hours! Great Graphics, and I love the Fae Blades! Im a rogue with fae blades and magic! Great Game!!!
I thought this game was great from the graphics to the story. Definetly worth it!! No issues like glitches or freezes and that scores BIG in my book. Dont get me wrong there was a hiccup or two but nothing like Skyrim or Fallout New Vegas. I will reccommend this to friends.
Better than Dragon Age.
This game rocks, I give this game a 9 out of 10. Forget dragon age. This game has everything that dragon age is missing. I just wish it had multiplayer co-op.
hack and slash rpg!!!
i like the characters!! its great you pick what race yr character is and what gods you worship. i picked no gods to worship. the controls are smooth. there is no jumping but you can roll to and fro. there and two weapon slots and a shield. your character has magic powers too depending on what race you pick. my guy is persuasive, passive, and stealthy. ive only just begun the game for a few hours but i was hooked after about 15 minutes! im no hardcore rpg gamer. i like fallout 3 but thats about it. i dont like elder scrolls or mass effect but i like this amalur reckoning!!im renting now but i may end up buying it cuz the map looks pretty big. i recommend to any casual gamer who is looking for something different from shooters and god of war type slashers/platformers.
