Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - The Teeth of Naros (DLC #2)

Digital Chumps
25 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The Teeth of Naros is a solid expansion to a great game. Veteran players may not find a significant challenge in Naros, and there is no level cap increase, but the new content and environment is well worth the cost of admission for fans of Amalur.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning: The Legend of Dead Kel

Digital Chumps
26 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Legend of Dead Kel is a quality five-plus hour expansion that is fairly priced. Fans of Reckoning should strongly consider it, unless they're holding out for a eventual re-release of Reckoning with all DLC included.

A Reckoning of Boxes

RPGamer
15 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a new IP from Big Huge Games, a newcomer to the RPG scene, but it has an impressive amount of experience behind it. Baseball all-star Curt Schilling gathered Todd McFarlane, R. A. Salvatore, and Ken Rolston to help him craft the world of Amalur, the fantasy world where Reckoning and the completely separate Kingdoms of Amalur MMORPG take place.

Gamer Limit
2 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning by newcomer 38 Studios doesn’t feel like a debut game. The pure confidence with which it presents itself is refreshing because it knows what kind of game it wants to be. While some might be tempted to write Amalur off as just another Western RPG like Skyrim with some World of Warcraft thrown in for color, they’d be wrong.

Amalur-ve machine

Game Debate
22 February 2012
  • Excerpt: There are two sides to the RPG coin. The eternal yin and yang of CRUNCH and FLUFF. Or, to put it in its most simplistic terms, mechanics versus storyline. Now, each gamer will find their own place along this sliding scale, which is why you may find WoW servers where everyone insists on playing 100% in character, and others where BartSimpson563 is just running round bellowing the lyrics to Sisqo’s ‘Thong Song’ just for the lulz.
  • Pros: Refining the genre, Massive, Crunchy crafting fun
  • Cons: Nothing groundbreaking

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

The Gamers Temple
19 February 2012
  • Excerpt: 38 Studios and Big Huge Games have indeed crafted a big huge game in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, but just what kind of big huge game is it? Its battles are pure action game, but other aspects of the game are drawn from RPGs, others are a unique take on things, and others still seem to be just tossed in for good measure.

  • Conclusion: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning offers fantastic combat, a decent story, intuitive menus and the occasional visual flourish. Yet it's almost entirely lacking in creativity.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

ActionTrip
13 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The gameplay mechanics are there, but the essence and soul of a true RPG, is absent. The world is beautiful, but somehow feels like you've been there before. Whether this is because the art style draws inspiration from Blizzard's Warcraft universe or Lionhead Studios' Fable, or something else, we don't know. Maybe it's just because of the incredible amount of generic content and the dreary story.
  • Pros: Explore to your heart's content, you'll find many cool things, from cool weapons and items, to God knows what else, great art, beautiful sound and terrific music, the freedom to tailor a character to your preference, fun and challenging combat;
  • Cons: Simply going through bland action RPG mechanics, the main story needs more subtlety, absence of difficult moral choices that have serious consequences, quests need more variation, most of the tasks feel pointless and downright dull.
