Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (PlayStation 3)

 

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- PS3

 

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is the first adventure in the brand new world of Amalur, brought to us by 38 Studios, Big Huge Games and the mind of fantasy legend R.A. Salvatore. An action RPG with the Salvatore pedigree to live up to, KoA:R promises...

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an incredible game. It offers a vivid world with a rich history, providing a great backdrop for an intuitive, customizable combat system. It’s terrible to see it brought down by something as stupid as cheap, invasive...

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

 

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning by newcomer 38 Studios doesn?t feel like a debut game. The pure confidence with which it presents itself is refreshing because it knows what kind of game it wants to be. While some might be tempted to write Amalur?off as...

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...

Ever since EA and Curt Schilling's 38 Studios revealed Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, I have been excited for the game. It looked like the blend of action based combat and RPG elements that...

Beautiful visuals ; Massive world ; Fantastic combat ; Lots of customization ; Wonderful story and lore ; Just a really well made game

Many side quests can be boring ; May be too much to do in the game

Ever since EA and Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios revealed Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, I have been excited for the game. It looked like the blend of action based combat and RPG elements that I had been looking for. When the developers were quoted as...

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...

I've been struggling to answer a key question concerning Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and unfortunately, I've been unsuccessful in finding an answer. The question is a difficult one— Is a game that attempts to blend multiple gameplay elements...

The Ugly: “Nothing ugly, unless you say mundane, trifling side-quests are ‘ugly.’”

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...
