Excellent game, despite the bugs
15 April 2014
Summary: The low price got my attention prior to buying the game. After reading other reviews I said what the heck and bought it. Zit reminded me a little bit of the original Fable in terms of movement but it had other Action-RPG elements on it. The guy has several bugs that are not going to be patched due to the fact that the developers had to shutdown business. So I recommend reading something online about certain quest before initiating them.
A very good game...but not without it's faults.

Summary: When I first heard about this game, it was in comparison to Elder Scrolls. While both games have their positives & negatives. I will not begin to debate them here. Reckoning Kindoms of Amular is a very good game. It has an expansive world that you can explore and numerous quests & side missions that will keep you occupied for many hours. It does have some glitches during gameplay and sometimes they can be frustrating. Especially when trying to complete a quest.
Summary: This turned out to be a pretty good game. Despite the terrible issues plaguing the demo this game is very polished with none of those issues showing up. It is a sprawling game with a vast world to traverse, many quests and some minor issues. Overall the gfx are very nice. You don't really get a sense of urgency (like all open worlds) on the main quest, you can side quest yourself to death if you want. The other issues are mostly nitpicky.
Summary: Very good game for RPG fans. Not on the level of a Skyrim type of RPG, but very good. Storyline isn't the best i've seen, but it doesn't leave you bored either. A good amount of sidequest, and different skill trees, give you a good amount of playtime if you don't want to rush through. The action type is more action based, think Fable/Dragon Age type of fighting.
Summary: I read a review on a games blog I follow (Rock, Paper, Shotgun). Based on that, and a good price on Amazon (mentioned in the article) I decided to try it. The critic admitted the review was late, coming out a year or so after the game was released, but had high praise for it. I love open-world RPGs (ie. Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Dragon Age I & II, The Witcher I & II, all the Elder Scrolls games, etc.) and this one certainly didn't disappoint.
Summary: I have been quite skeptical about buying online RPG games. I loved the Elder Scrolls series so my expectations were very high. I recently played Witcher 1 which I liked a lot, but Witcher 2 won't run without being so slow and such mouse sensitivity that I can't stand playing it. I liked Risen, but also found it lagged. This game however, has been AWESOME! It is huge like Skyrim and with lots of things to explore.
