Review by G.W on 12th February, 2012
 
4 stars "More Fable 2 than Oblivion"

With the head designer from Morrowland and Oblivion making this game, i was looking forward to a similar style game – and was a little disappointed.

This game is more “Fable 2” than oblivion, in all ways. Graphic style and game play – but this is not a bad thing. “Reckoning” is a fun and enjoyable game. not overly difficult or complex, and you will be playing like a pro before the very good tutorial finishes (about 1hr)

Fighting is “fable” like, with two weapon buttons, and using timed button taps to perform different moves (which you learn as you level)

Its reviews from IGN 9/10 and GameSpot 7.5/10 (both have video reviews) sum it up nicely – I give it a solid 8.5.

5 stars "enioyable"

I bought this game because I generally like RPG's and after playing Skyrim any RPG is going to have to lift the bar to compete with this. Initially I wasnt too impressed but after playing it for a couple of hours amd finding it quite njoyable. Graphics and gameplay are a lot like Fable (which I enjoyed) and to be honest enjoyment factor for me is what its all about not the science of graphics, interface and plot.. Enjoy the game for what it is and dont try to analyse too much

5 stars "Pretty.. Pretty... Pretty.. GOOD!"

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is like a breath of fresh air…

After an awesome 180 hours in Tamriel, I was ready to hit some new shores.. and the bright and colourful lands of Amalur were my port of call.

This game has an interesting world, great quests, excellent loot system and some of the best combat this side of Roadhouse.

Some hiccups along the way include some sub-par voice work/lip-sync, side quests are quite boring (stick to main/faction mostly for the best experience) and a few bugs here and there..but not enough to detract from the experience.

If I could give this game a 4 1/2 star rating I would, but since it's a new developer (albeit experienced heads), I will give it the full 5 swinging swords, out of 5.

Huzzah!

"Check reviewers"

This game looks like a smash I have yet to play it but if you want an indepth and very detailed review check out YouTube and look for angry joe's review on the kingdoms of amalur. He will tell you every aspect of this game including his overall rating.

5 stars "Epic Execution!"

Buying this game was easy a combination of reviews and trailer's and my mind was set. Now the game play is great combat is easy and allows for smooth weapon changes e.g From bow to sword. Also the way this games tackles leveling up your character with destinies id quite fresh and new. The quest line with this game is packed probably more so that oblivion or skyrim. Hundreds of side quest map your way throughout the world. However there is indeed a fable element in this game as game play wish I am reminded of fable. Also as with ever game it has drawbacks like the inability to jump other than at predetermined spots, The inventory system is also pretty plain, and sometime big dead enemies can block doorway until you finally bulldoze through. All that said it is a great in depth RPG adventure and if you like fable then I don't see this disappointing anytime soon.

Great game

“..Reckoning proves once and for all that great role-playing experiences don't have to sacrifice what matters most in any game – gameplay – while still remaining true to all of the minutiae that makes the best RPGs great.” 9/10 – IGN

Immersing players in a rich, living, breathing open-world dripping with magic and rife with danger, underpinned by strong storytelling, Reckoning lets players define their destiny as they engage in intense action combat while exploring the huge, vibrant and varied world of Amalur as envisioned by the visionary creator of Spawn and acclaimed artist, Todd McFarlane.

Reviews

“…I'll come right out and say it: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will be discussed when Game of the Year 2012 rolls around. It has brought the conversation about what combat can be in the role-playing genre to the forefront and sets the bar exceptionally high for its future contemporaries in the genre. But don't let its competition-shaming gameplay lull you into think that that's all this game has to offer, because that's just gloss on an overall package that's bound to impress the RPG faithful. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning isn't the perfect game. Its random technical hiccups and inconsistent art style certainly holds it back from even higher levels of greatness. But no matter what you're looking for, whether it be amazing gameplay, immersive storytelling or perhaps a riveting new world to explore as you fully customize and re-customize your character at will, Reckoning has it all. And after I jump back into my own game to clean up all of the optional stuff I didn't do, I sense I'll want even more. And yes, so will you.” 9/10 – IGN

“..Deep, polished gameplay wrapped around an interesting and engulfing universe with all of the bells and whistles RPG and action game lovers crave spread across enough content to keep you busy for months.” Gaming Nexus

“…Though it leans a little too heavily on well-trod genre conventions, there's no denying that Reckoning has a whole lot to offer in terms of sheer breadth. Similarly, though the challenge tapers off dramatically toward the end, its combat is welcoming, gratifying, and hypnotic.” 82/100 Game Trailers

“…If you love any or all of the following – RPGs, rich fantasy worlds, action games – Reckoning is a rich action RPG with a deep narrative, even deeper character customization, and plenty of content right out of the box. Go get this game.” Team Xbox
