Summary: Kingdoms of Amalur is a fantastic game with good lore and fast paced gameplay. Definitely not a short game, put about 50 hours to get to level 60 if I can recall, but my game bugged at a quest called "Her Righteous Fury." Google this and you will find what that bug is. It messed up my fast travel and the game will not let you continue with other quests until you finish "Her Righteous Fury" first. Complete game breaker.
Summary: Fantastic powers, fantastic weapons, fantastic foes, magic and just about every larger-than-possible thing. Plot is very simplistic, This is designed for the player that likes building something to fit his style and go out and kill things and stuff. Not my cup of tea.
Not great, but worth $10, for fans of 3rd person RPGs
10 December 2013
Summary: I got this game on sale for $10ish, so it's a great deal whether or not I'm all that psyched about it, and for people looking for another game similar to Fable, Dragon Age, or Skyrim, and you don't want to spend a lot, KoA; Reckoning might satisfy your fix, though I think it falls short of what makes those games so great. Well, I guess I should get to my critique.
Summary: I enjoyed playing it the first time, but doesn't have much replay value. I restarted the game 2 or 3 times, but just couldn't get back into it. It's worth playing, but you'll only play it once.
