Expert Review

  • Conclusion: What we have here is a solid foundation. Now we just need some spice and seasoning to make something truly special.
  • Pros: Some of the best action RPG combat around, an interesting world.
  • Cons: Nothing interesting to do in said interesting world, lack of variety outside of the wonderfully envisioned combat.

  • 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.

  • 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%...
  • Pros: Refining the genre, Massive, Crunchy crafting fun

  • 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...
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Are you ready to play another nameless hero and take up a sword, staff, or dagger against an ancient enemy in a far-away fantasy world? Yes, of course you are, and I don't want to hear any complaining about how many times you've seen this story before!
