KoA: Reckoning Review

When I first looked at this I was still playing Skyrim and I thought this looks like a knock off but then I looked into it some more and watched all the videos about it and I rented it. It is amazing it has all the things I think Skyrim is missing but nothing can be all good. Some of the abilities are just so Over Powered that when you use them almost nothing stands a chance. Also, the lock picking is to easy but then dispelling the magic equivalent to lock picking is to hard. Overall it makes up for what Skyrim was missing like a combat system and fantasyness. Skyrim was trying to be to realistic for a fantasy game. KoA on the other hand knows its a fantasy game so it makes full use of that and is just better. I give it a 10/10 for an action packed RPG.

Great lighting and color in all aspects of the game. The many customizable weapons and armor selections keep you always anticipating the next item you'll receive.Salvatore provides an in-depth story, giving the feeling of no rock being left unturned. There is plenty of side quests and back stories to be had from almost any character u come across. The gameplay is fast and is always giving you more fighting options as you increase levels. It provides a Fable 3 feel regarding the geography and layout of the maps, but seems to have perfected the fighting style and action that was lacking. Overall its an enjoyable, fast paced, action packed game that keeps me wanting more.
