Summary: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a great RPG for those loving the genre. This game plays very similar to World of Warcraft during character creation and general gameplay, but is distinctly different. The controls are identical to the Fable series of games and the game world feels very similar to Fable 2. Newcomers to action RPG's would have no trouble picking this game up and starting immediately.
This RPG is worth every single penny and a must have.

Summary: This game is loaded with all sorts of new innovative ways for your character to grow and make decisions throughout the entire game. The environments and graphics are breathtaking and really shows the power the game brings to the genre. The combat and handling of your character just flows naturally. You don't have to be tied down to just one class because you are able to change your destiny as different classes become available as you progress throughout the game.
One or two very slight drawbacks but SOOOO worth your money!

Summary: I'm a casual gamer and have had the game for a couple months now. I've put about 30 hours in and haven't even started the main story line at all. So far it is incredibly fun combat, addictive character customization. I loved Skyrim for its freedom and the fable series for it's almost cartoon-like appearance and story telling. KOA meets somewhere in the middle and seeing how I haven't even started the story and only explored not even a third if te entire map 30 hours in.
Summary: This is a highly under rated game! It is soooo much fun! I love the fact that I could play as a female character. I really hate when other games make me play a male character. It just feels less "real" to me since I am a female. But you can play as either male or female in all the races. The graphics are spectacular. The storyline is intriguing. The character development is well done. I love a good RP with hack and slash.
Summary: Both me and my wife loved this game, we just had one complain. We loved the story, the options in weapons, armor, abilities, real time battle, loot, etc. The one complain was the level cap, you can only level up so much; problem was we hit the cap long before the end, so it takes fun away when you don't get XP for kills and quests, but even with that we just loved it!
Summary: I'm sorry but this game gets a full 10 in scale for the price when it came out back then.And also for the rich game play mixed with hack and slash very friendly game play.If not almost perfect controls.Video game developers take a lesson from this game , FUN .Does anybody remember when games were fun and easy.
Summary: 35 hours in to the game and I can't wait to get back to the world and keep exploring. Amalur has a rich and fully developed feel to it genuinely driving your curiosity and makes you want to find out what is just beyond the next hillside. Combat and gameplay are both responsive and instantly rewarding.
Summary: This game came out a few years ago but I dont remember hardly any hype, so I passed it up. I was dead wrong to pass this experience by me. This game has become top 5 favorite games of all time. Why? Its a cross breed between the combat from God of War, the art direction similar to Fable, and a massive world like WoW, seriously its huge. Maybe bigger than skyrim. The loot is abundant, the blood sprays, and the environments are beautiful to behold.
Summary: Going into this game, I had heard the stories of the studio failing. I had played the demo and thought it sucked .. then I started seeing the reviews and I was like.. why not.. let's try it. This game is fantastic. It's really too bad that the studio didn't succeed as this game deserves a sequel. It is definately an action RPG that let's you tailor your gameplay. I chose the route of Might with a little magic sprinkled in. I also have been crafting my own items.
Summary: I loved this game. After Skyrim got boring, this game was a nice change. I like an open world RPG, this is a bit more linear than Skyrim. The combat is so much better though. Not hack and slash. The characters and scenery is so bright and vivid, some of the monsters even frightened me when they surprised me. The sound effects and music are not bad, but sometimes the sync is off.
