Back to product overview
Kingdoms of Amalur offers something very different for the RPG fan. Having
been a fan of the Genre it is excellent to see developers doing
Character development is very interesting indeed as you are not tied down to
any one class and can combine Mage/Warrior and Rogue/Thief classes in a number
of ways. The ability to mold your class and make it your won is excellent.
The combat is great fun and does satisfy the player as they develop moves
they use from their character development. Combat is visceral and gutsy and
flows very well.
Loot drops galore (somewhat too much at times) will please most, with
crafting being pretty decent (not as detailed as other MMO's but certainly
holds its own).
Side quests are everywhere and there is a huge selection to go off and gain
XP and rewards. The world is pretty enough if somewhat ‘cartoony’ as opposed
to realistic, however it does have a dream like quality that fits well and isnt
boring to look at or wander around.
The story line and Lore is ok, nothing amazing and the voice acting is poor
at best from NPC's (attempts at dwarf/Gnome like Scottish accents in particular
A great one to take a more structured instant satisfaction style of RPG
gaming. Very different form Skyrim, personally I'd have both as Skyrim is very
open and totally different in terms of your game play.
The GUI lacks customization and hopefully the MOD community will open up this
title, which has a great potential if it goes online!
Will keep and enjoy this great RPG, certainly until Guild Wars 2! 8/10
Really looking foreward to this game! Story written by a fantasy novel
legend, visual art crafted by one of the leading names in comic arterstry and
stylizing & an open world designed by a legend of sandbox gaming. This one
is GAURENTEED to be an amazing romp. If you haven't heard of it, don't pass it
up, this game is the game that will come out of nowhere and slap every gamer in
This game is a great rpg with lots of quests to do. Theres always someone to
battle while you roam the world. The graphics are pretty good and the gameplay
is very well done. The storryline is very easy to follow and the game does take
sometime unless you only do the main quest. Overall this is a very good game and
i would definatly recommend playing it.
Will get around to finishing it seems good so far
I just got this game and I have to say its one of the best so far, so easy
to get used to the controls and its pretty intense, awesome characters and love
The game really is pretty massive, with tons to explore and oh SO many
quests! There are some (pretty minor but disappointing) bugs, but overall
it's a great game that should keep you occupied for hours.. The class
flexibility system is great, you can build the class the way you want, and if
you want to change, visit the fate weaver and reset all your points!
So brilliant im no where near finishing it yet!!!
MUST recommend to all rpg fans!!
Great fantasy RPG, much more actiony than most on the market these days.
Storyline and graphics are both well rounded and captivating, while combat and
exploration are well balanced, fast and fun.
A great buy, hope other games follow it's example!
After installation, the game insists on going online to create an account and
redeem the product code. It took an hour to get an account and then kept giving
me a “Service not available”. After two hours of trying, not including the
installation of a windows instance I'm still not able to play the game. Help is
no help, so decided to check facebook page but noted that EA staff only post
promo rubbish and don't connect with their users at all. All in all a completely
negative experience and I still can't play the game even though I just want to
I have only played the demo and feel that it would be a very worthwhile
purchase to anyone who enjoyed Fable ( The first one ) and The Elder Scrolls
games as it has a similar combat system to that of Fable with the questing
opportunities and exploration of The Elder Scrolls.
There were two points that troubled me.
1: It was too easy on the default setting.
2: The graphics were disappointing.
If you enjoy a challenge like The Witcher 2 on Dark mode or Dark Souls this may
not be the best choice.
If you do not have a very powerful computer or excellent graphics are not a
requirement this could be the fix for your RPG appetite.
Those are the two biggest points for me as I have other RPGs I can play
that have great graphics and can be set to horrifying difficulties.
Side note: The running feels very much like an MMORPG when using click to
move, where there is little to no weight behind your character.
In other words it feels like you're running on air.
It doesn't feel natural to me and makes me a little uncomfortable, this may not
be a problem for anyone else but it may be something to consider if you enjoy
games with a feeling of weight behind your movement.
I think I will pick this game up somewhere along the line if it has a very
hard difficulty setting at the very least.
It seems like it will have a very long lifetime with it's replayability and it
doesn't look like it will a simple six hours and game over.
Worthwhile for anyone who enjoys quests, side-quests, magic, monsters, and the
option to slaughter the villagers.
I rate it 3/5 BASED ON THE DEMO
Two stars lost due to graphics, feeling too light in movement and too easy.
These may not plague the full version or you may not see them as factors that
effect your enjoyment of the game.
This game is overshadowed by Skyrim, but is still a great game.
It's customization is lacking and it has no romance like skyrim or dragon
age, but is combat more than makes up for it.
KOA reckoning has to be the most underrated rpg ever. this is shaping up to
be one of the best rpgs ever. it combines a sandbox open world(skyrim/fallout)
with quick responsive combat. has 100s of hours of content as well. any rpg fan
will not be disappointed with this game and the reviews will show it when they
are released. BUY IT!
