Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Best Action RPG.....Ever. Period.
This game incorporates outstanding graphics and sound with a seamless battle engine and top it off with a complete original story. Whatever your expectations are they will simply be outdone. But save often on the DLC's...I found "Legend of Dead Kel" a little buggy.
A new fresh RPG Experience
The baseball pitcher turned game designer has scored a big hit with Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning.
I found it to be very entertaining. There are a lot of choices one can make as far as character and development. The choices you make early will determine how your character will grow and develop over the course of the full game. As with Diablo II, I can see people playing the game over and over and developing different characters and using different weapons and equipment to go thru the game. I believe that there is even an online portion but don't quote me here. I am really looking forward to going on with the game and seeing how things turn out..
best since Dragonage 2
lots of quests lots of ways to change your character throughout the game play love it i have been playing for at least two weeks and still finding new quests popping up here or there
This game is sick if u like a good rpg buy it i would recommend this game to people who have alot of time on there hands and enjoy play fantastic role playing games it reminds me of a skyrim type game style very long im at 70+hrs and im not even started the main quest yet is hugh and very good story lines to it alot of quests to do and so much weapons and arrmor too choose from. If u are internested in graphics get it for ur computer other then the console and u can play it with the controller on the pc if wondering and it runs so smooth on the pc too doesnt need much to run and once u get into the game its like ur in another world it kinda reminds me of final fantasty in a way and the abilitys remind me of a little touch of lineage 2 great work on the game.
What fable 2 should of been.
I loved the first fable and was sadly disappointed with the sequel. This game finally feels like the fable 2 i was promised but was never delivered. I have played through the demo twice (they allow you 45 minutes to play the game with zone restrictions) so i have a decent feel for the game mechanics. IGN has reviewed the full game giving it a score of 9/10 faulting it for a few minor glitches (which i too experienced during the demo, yet didnt take away from the experience at all) yet praising it for gameplay surpassing games such as skyrim, fallout 3 and mass effect 2. They said the main story line takes about 20 hrs to complete but there are so many side quests, to complete the game fully would take about 150 hrs.
this demo was sick, i can't wait to get the game tomorrow .. it reminded me of a mix between god of war and Fable for some reason
When played the demo, I was impressed. Sure there were a few glitches here and there, but it's expected from a demo and it still didn't take any of the fun out of it. The way this game plays is so deep that these other western RPG's have to do a lot to catch this game. Also, while the graphics aren't perfect, it's still a beautiful game to look at. Reminds me of both Fable and WoW in how the environments just stand out. Don't overlook this game as just by the demo, this may be one of the biggest games of 2012!
I played the demo for this game, and sadly, I'm unimpressed. There's been a big hype about this game, and I feel that it's being overrated. A LOT. The graphics are kiddish, there's way too much talking for little action, the story feels like you're about to enter a Mario game (which I find Mario games better) to save the princess, but mixed with Fable? What a weird mix. It's a lot like the first Fable, where it's a lot more kiddish looking, but it's not near as fun. Also, it looks like they copied some things exactly from Fable to Reckoning. I'm not a fan of products that are copies of something else. Some people may like it, but I feel like it could have been improved. If you want a real adventure that is not a mythical world full of bunnies and sunshine, I suggest you look elsewhere.
I played the demo and it's a typical watered-down version of a hack and slash. The graphics are 'charming' - somewhat like GuildWars looked like, only more polished. The combat thus far is basic, but the skill tree and combos show promise for more intricate combat encounters. The only thing I can say that I very much dislike are the controls and the camera angles. The controls, granted, can be tweeked - hopefully they spend a little time with the camera angles. Is it worth the money at release? I couldn't tell you. It seems as though this game is heavily story-driven. It just depends on how burned out you are on gnomes and elves etc.
I am in the middle of the Demo right now, and I must say the gameplay is absolutly out of this world. If you liked fable, you will LOVE this game. From what I can tell so far, this game is going to put fable in the dirt. Try it out!!
