EA won't support this game anymore

Summary: Game has had a fatal flaw since over a year ago that was never and will never be addressed. Does not happen to everyone but if it happens to you your game will not be able to progress. I am referring to the infamous "Silence Falls" dilemma. If you break a crystal without first having started the quest you will not be able to ever break the 3rd and final crystal. Even if you regress to an earlier save where the crystal was not ever broken, the game will not forget.
Summary: This review covers the KOA: Reckoning DEMO for PS3 only. I don't like having to do these kinds of reviews. I've enjoyed video games for over 40 yrs. now, and ever seek to promote it's improvement; but this game is not only a number of steps backward, it is so fraught with problems that I cannot in good conscience recommend it at all. Sorry EA, you've really pulled a "boner" here. #1) The download time on this is way bigger than it should be for a file it's size.
Beware: No in-case pamphlet, No saves to Media..rant in progress!

Summary: I am sure others have already ranted about the fact that you are only purchasing access to 97% of the disc content unless you happen to have high speed internet access. So I'll leave that gripe alone. I would give this game concept 10 stars out of 5, except there are some execution problems (largely due to politics, why does that have to infringe on my gaming pleasure???) The game: I love the environments!
Summary: When i heard about this game i was very excited, it promised to be everything that fable 2 wasn't, have a deeper combat system, and feature extreme player choice. But what i got instead was an action game with some roleplaying elements, and bad combat. Don't buy this game if you are looking for a fun, immersive RPG experince. Just get Skyrim or Mass Effect.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I am a huge fan of RA Salvatore and Todd McFarlane, and I am also a huge fan of Morrowind and Oblivion. As soon as I heard the people involved in this game I was excited to get to the store and reserve my copy. I am sorry to say I was hugely disappointed. Graphics I am a fan of darker, grimmer graphics in video games. Graphics that would be found in Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Diablo 2 or Skyrim (just to give a wide example).
Dissapointing and fails to live up to expectstions

Summary: When this game was about to release i was really excited for it , i mean just take into account the pedigree of talent behind the development team alone plus all the previews and pre-launch talk, mostly on G4 made me want to play KoA . That was then, now it's a completely different story. can only be chalked up to a MASSIVE disappointment.
Summary: I was very excited when I heard about this game, so I recently picked it up from Gamestop new for the usual $60. This game folks, is NOT worth buying new, not even used, until the price goes down to maybe $30.
Summary: it was a good game but it was very short and I noticed that Big Huge and EA are trying to copy Bethesda's Skyrim. This game could never be anything like Skyrim because, just like on "Lord of the Rings:War in the North" the roaming was very limited. And personaly, the cartoonish textures ruined the game for me, it made the game feel childish and some of the creatures, good or evil, looked also very childish.
Summary: This is an alright game. I may be a bit biased here as I am a massive Elder Scrolls fan and am probably reviewing this game up against the newest instalment Skyrim. It has some great graphics and some beautiful scenery to look at as you are creeping up behind a guard but some how the game-play lets it down a bit. It seems a bit too cartoony if that makes any sense.
