My Opinion Only, Amazon

Summary: I have a Pavillion and this game runs sloooo mo, even with all the graphics at nil. There's only 4 resolution choices and they are all bad. It had potential but after 15 minutes of trying to get past the beginning dungeon with a char at perm crawl was enough for me. If you play on a Pavillion pass this by.
Summary: You must have a product code to register the game, you can't play the game unless you register it with Origin. They said the product code is on the box or in the manual. I tried every number on the box, no go. There is no manual. There is supposed to be a manual on the disk, but I can't find it. The "help" on the Origin site is almost non-existant. You click on the help links, and all you ever get is (eventually) a FAQ, or in my case, I ended up at some Xbox site..
Summary: DO NOT FORCE ORIGIN ON US... I am tempted to call it a loss, delete the game and Origin and wait for a Steam sale..... This is total bull.... Shame on you Amazon, had I known I would have never purchased it. I don't think I will be downloading ANYMORE games from you guys again..
Summary: I really liked the game and I guess that's the main reason why I didn't pay too much attention to the odd bug or two.. The problem is that one or two bugs turned into three, four and five. In the end, I had to scrap two high level characters simply because they couldn't be played anymore.
Summary: I hate this game soooooooooo much! I wish I didn't buy it because it is not what the IGN review made it out to be. It seemed to be a 3rd person rpg with free-roaming capabilities, but instead it forces you to go with the story. I do not recommend this game to anyone. If this would have been my first game on my PS3, it would have made me buy an XBOX-360. I hate this waste-of-money POS game.
Summary: Wasn't a terribly compeling game, although some original thoughts were promoted. I could not finish the game because the last Boss was unbeatable, and the ridiculous order of killing things made it pure frustration instead of fun. If you are a super game player, you may enjoy it. I enjoy the narrative of the story and have no wish to die 30 times before I get good enough to win.
Summary: Amalur was an excellent game- till it completely and utterly stopped working. Then I met EA customer service. The only thing great about Amalur now is Amazon- that is refunding the cost due to my experience. First review of game: The combat system is bested by no other game I know of. Graphics are good. Story.. a bit stale frankly. Not as easy to get into as it was in comparison to the Blizzard games or other games.
Summary: I just got off the phone with Origin/EA Tech Support. This was my second call. I purchased both the PC versions of Teeth of Naros and The Legend of Dead Kel about 5 weeks ago. The installations seemed to go ok, but I was never able to access the DLC quests. The Origin/EA support people were both excellent. They both spent almost a hour with me on the phone trying many possible solutions.
