Summary: I bought this game to expand my gaming library, also the reviews individuals gave this title were around 9/10 or 4/5 even 5/5 so I decided to check it out. Important facts on the game: - Limited character customization - Not that many armor or weapon variation (stats for each piece of equipment vary) - Many hours can be invested in a playthrough such as quests and tasks - Many storyline is moderately interesting, factions are an added bonus - Too many linear quests where...
Summary: Kingdoms of Amalur is a difficult game to review. There are numerous things the game does quite well, but also so many areas in which it fails. And where it fails, it fails dismally. The game is a quest based action/RPG fantasy game that takes place all across a mythical kingdom called Amalur.
Yes it's not Skyrim, but it's fun. If you can avoid the Glitches

Summary: I have been playing RPG's for a long time. I started with FF7 then many more and finally moved up to the most awesome games; Oblivion and Skyrim. I purchased this game after watching the trailer for it and thought "hey...that could be fun". I pre-ordered it and that was that. When i first started playing KOA i was still playing Skyrim a lot. I could not get into KOA and felt like it was a cheap knock-off copycat wannabe Skyrim. haha. I stopped playing KOA.
Summary: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a video game that gets old very quickly. Although the game isn't terrible, nearly every aspect of the game is uninspired and mediocre. Neither the main quest nor any side-quests excited me. Nearly each quest has you carrying out mundane, generic tasks that are neither fun nor challenging. Expect numerous requests from NPCs to "retrieve this item," "kill this enemy," or "advance through this dungeon.
Summary: For starters, this game is gorgeous. I was swept away by the atmosphere and stunning environment. The game is big, smooth, fun to run around in, and generally amazing...at first. I look to games like this to unveil a good story line over time. This never happened in this game. The central conceit of the main character being 'fateless' is interesting, but not wel developed. Quests are myriad but essentially meaningless.
Summary: At the very end after Dead Kel's demise. When you are escaping the cave. At the end when you have to talk to your companion. The cave collapses on top of them before you can do so and you are stuck in that bay. As long as the final mission is not done it is a good dlc. The items and keep you receive are excellent. So in closing i would not recommend doing the mission (the offering) until the glitch has been fixed.
