Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (PC)

 

Even the greatest role-playing games aren't necessarily known for their great combat. They're frequently praised for their ambitious worlds, their involving stories, and the element of choice. But when you talk about your favorite RPGs, it's not often...

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

 

The sheer depth of modern RPGs never ceases to amaze me. The worlds that become our fantastical playgrounds are rich not only in the visual flair that modern technology provides, but also in the imagined history, philosophy, and theology created by...

With a game as expansive as this, technical issues are par for the course. I'm happy to report I only encountered a few texture pop-in issues, which seemed more prevalent during conversations depending on the angle the camera decided to take. If you...

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

 

The world of Amalur is a large one, and there's plenty to do throughout its sprawling fields, mountains and dungeons -- but the whole thing feels remarkably bland and run of the mill more often than not.

I use this game as a break from serious RPG'ing, you know ... when I just want to run around and kill stuff.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (PS3, 360, PC) Review

 

Can impressive combat and beautiful environments overcome the game's bland story? Find out inside!

Beautiful world ; Tons to do ; Combat is fluid and fun ; Runs smoothly

Generic quests ; Too much lore given at once ; General lack of motivation for quests

Kingdoms of Amalur is a surprising newcomer to the western role playing genre. Instead of focusing on the story, Big Huge Games focused on a fluid combat system and creating a beautiful world to fight in. While the story and quests are far from...

The minds behind Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning are certainly cultured in the world of fantasy RPGs. Ken Rolston brings his pedigree (and some Bethesda alumni with it) having worked on both The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind and its successor, Oblivion; while...

The same cannot be said for all of Reckoning’s many parts, however, but there’s an enjoyable game here with some interesting ideas - providing you stick closely to the main quest line and faction quests. The drabness and profusion of the side...

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning

 

You might have played this sort of game before but this is a good excuse to play it again.

The brightly colored world of the Faelands is full of dangers and people who need your help, and there’s an enormous amount of content taking you through quest hubs around the map. There’s nothing groundbreaking about Reckoning, but fans of The Elder...

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Review

 

Kingdoms of Amalur's combat and character advancement are fantastic enough to overshadow how bland everything else is.

Top-notch combat with a real punch ; Fantastic, flexible character advancement ; Some great-looking creatures ; Extensive world with tons of stuff to do and lots of monsters to fight

Generic story and characters ; Generic world ; Generic quests

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning proves once and for all that western RPGs can be both immersive and story-driven while playing extremely well.

Review: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning for PS3, Xbox 360, Windows

 

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a robust, open-world RPG, even though some of the side quests can get a bit tedious.

Lots of assorted quests and tasks, as well as multiple factions to join. Four races to choose from. Can pick and choose which finesse, might and sorcery skills you want to learn. Can pay fateweavers to reset all skill and ability points. Can create...

There are quite a few fetch quests, some of which have middle steps that can be skipped if you inadvertently grab items early. It doesn’t seem like some non-persuasion dialogue choices have too much impact on the story. It did freeze on me three times...

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Review

 

Action, meet RPG. RPG, action.

Tons of unrestricted character customization options; deep RPG elements; simple, intuitive action controls; massive world to explore

Open world isn't truly open; visual style lacks punch; forgettable characters; too easy for experienced gamers

Customization galore, eh? So I'll finally be able to equip my character with the legendary green trench coat armor of invisibility and matching green fedora helm of suave? Sign me up. After Skyrim, I'm looking forward to some more interesting combat,...
