Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

This is probably one of the most fun RPGs I have played in a while. The graphics are a little cartoony but you get over that... Especially if you have played Fable before. It has pretty much everything I want in an RPG. I dont know about all of you but this game offers a cool narrative kind of story where you choose what you say and it actually effects what happens in the game. I like that. I think thats what makes a true RPG. You also get to choose one of many fates but dont worry! The fate you choose in the beginning will not be permanent, you can change your fate at any time during the game. This adds a cool twist to the game. There are 3 different types of classes. Warriors, Rogues, and Mages. You can choose a fate that is focused on one class, or if you want to crafty you can choose two classes as your fate (Rogue, Warrior). Or if you want to get really creative you can choose all 3 classes and get small benefits for all of them. There is also an option where you can choose "fateless one" where you get to shape your fate as you play. Speaking of fate, there is this cool thing called fateshifting in the game. While in fateshift mode, you do more damage and get more XP for all the weakened enemies around you, plus you get to do a really cool finishing move on one of the unlucky creature who steps in your path. One other great thing about this game is that there are plenty of quests to keep you busy! So I really suggest buying this game! It would take to long to beat the game if you rented it. I hope you found this helpful! Thanks for reading!

Graphics are so cheezy. however i love the gameplay, its way better than even Dragon age. enemies are super responsive and actually react to movement. their is so much depth in weapons choices that you dont get bored with endless creative experimentation.

My first impression of KOA Reckoning was not that good. I have to say after fully immersing myself into the game it has it ups and downs. The overall story and combat has got to be the defining features in this game for me. I do feel that some of the quests are pointless, the enemies get stale due to a limited variation and that the boss encounters are left something to be desired. The overall difficulty of the game was easy to me even on the hard setting. I have to say I put in over 70 hours into the game. the main story quests kept my wanting to know more and the combat kept me on edge trying to mix up my fighting style over and over again. The crafting was simple and easy to use and the skill trees were fairly interesting. I have to say overall the game is a good game with solid features but if the small things bother you and your nit picky it might not be for you.
