Reckoning is a super long game with tons and tons of quests. The voice acting is good, story is interesting, but game-play is what makes the game awesome. In the game you get easy access to explore different play styles such as a melee warrior, mage (magic user), and even a rogue. These styles come with many different weapons and cool looking armor. There's also lock picking, crafting, etc... So basically you have a skyrim type of game! Graphics are good with a cartoonist look. There are bugs but none that would actually bother you, especially since it's a LARGE game (took me 40 hours to beat).
Overall, if your a RPG fan than its a must play.
Had a small error after the initial installation of the game and connecting to EA servers (why this is needed for solo play is beyond me). After a 2nd install and getting past the demo's play area. I found the game to be very similar in feel to Elder Scrolls (which I enjoy). I like the look and artistic feel of the game and the little extras like changing your "class" based on where you put points in the 3 talent trees and choosing based off fate cards is a nice twist.
My only annoyance with the game is the rough camera positioning when battling enemies. It's hard to see your surroundings with it so close.
Other than that, I really enjoy the game so far and look forward to finishing it.
Let me first say : I do like this game, and have beaten it a few times ( on the PC ).
The game has a fluid combat system that is easy to get into and is fun to use. However, at the same time it suffers from the fate of many hack n slash type games : it is just easier to mash the same attack combo over and over and over than to go into any complicated strategy of stealth or spells , etc etc
The graphics for the game are fairly good and I don't have any complaints here.
The storyline of the game was kind of a bland generic save the world and your personal character isn't really fleshed out, you get a weak backstory and then no real development of the character
Timewise, If you stick to the main story arch you can blow through the game very quickly. However, gameplay can be extended quite a bit if you are the exploring type that likes to find everything possible and do every quest.
My biggest issue with the game was it was too easy.. even on hard it really isn't a challenge : especially if you focused on crafting your own armor. If you focus on Sagecrafting + Blacksmithing then it renders almost all loot drops pointless - Crafted armor is just OP with the right crafting materials.
Overall, the game is definately worth one play-through but there is little to no replay value.
