Good

First Look

I judge a game (like allot of people do) by my first impression. The story was good enough at the start and the game play is really basic. If you enjoy slash-type rpg's then this is probably for you.

This game is phenomenal! I have played 20 hours in the past 3 days, I have never been so addicted to any game ever. It is like Fable but with a more complex/better combat system. There are a ridiculous amount of quests (so many I can't fathom anyone doing all of them) and the area is huge. KoA is on par with Skyrim and better in some aspects (combat, loot, etc.) One thing I really wish it had, and maybe I just haven't gotten there yet, is some sort of mount or pet system. I'm always a little weary about starting RPGs because each interface/combat/inventory system varies so much, but I really felt that KoA made everything easy to understand and did a good job of explaining things along the way. If you are on the fence about this game, I strongly recommend you give it a shot. RIYL: Fable, Warcraft, Skyrim, Zelda...

This game is REALLY hard to put down. im 11 hours in, but seems like i've only played for 20 mins......this and skyrim are on par for being the best RPG's of the year. The ability to have your secondary weapon easily available by using the Y button was a smart move as well. No more going through menus to select one weapon, then cycling through for another, then back again.....you can chain with both your main and secondary flawlessly. Get this game....you will not regret it.
