The game that was so close to being amazing.

Summary: This game is truly creative and wonderful to walk around in, but they really should have hired better GAME designers. The worlds, stories, and art are top-notch, but the gameplay is stale, easy, incredibly repetitive, easy, boring, and did I mention easy?
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.
Summary: I would be lying if I said there wasn't substance to the many positive reviews for this game. Once past the opening cinematic and first mission / training level, KoA presents a world of great size and magnificent appearance, rich with unique peoples and their history.
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.
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...
so so rpg- that is not up there with the heavy hitters

Summary: Kingdoms of Amalur is pretty much a hack and slash rpg. Combat is quite enjoyable with a fair few special abilities to utilise and there is also a fair bit of customisation available to your character.
Summary: Well I have to be honest I didn't really think much of this game, this is because going from a highly polished and the somewhat universally panned Final Fantasy XIII, I was expecting a strong and engrossing story with amazing visuals and polished gameplay, but Amalur provided neither.
Summary: Received the game today and have been blown away by how rubbish this game is
compared to the hype and developers info. The combat is great (really, really
fun), but the rest is just over-hyped, exaggerated and flawed. Issues: Screen tearing… More than is acceptible in any game.
Excerpt: This game took me by storm. I had high expectations, and it lived up to them all. The fast paced, and stunningly gorgeous, action teams up well with the sheer size of the game. No lockups or glitches that are usually found in deep role playing games like these.
Pros: Fast paced, in depth, beautiful open world and fighting moves, user friendly
Summary: This game started off looking really good, then gradually lost my interest. The gameplay and storyline just aren't up to scratch. If you want a great fantasy adventure then play Skyrim and leave this one on the shelf!
