Kingdom Of Amalur Reckoning Review

by Mohd in Games

Kingdom of amalur have been claiming that its gonna change the open world RPG genre for good, whether they did or not you would have to continue reading to know 🙂

There are alot of big names behind the development of this game, as the game begins you will instantly get the feeling that you are playing an MMO especially World Of WarCraft. Basically the game was first designed to be an MMO but they ended up making it a single player console game. Its not so bad actually infact its pretty good, i know alot of you out there are so eager to play an MMO (World Of WarCraft & Guild Wars…) but they we turned down because of the crapy combat system & that you gotta play it on a PC. I never understood how playing on a PC could be fun when using the mouse & keyboard !!!

The artistic style of the game has alot of resemblance to WOW (World Of Warcraft) the colors, the environment & even the races appearance would remind you of it & this is not bad at all in my opinion, I’ve always wanted to play WOW & actually played it for a while but didnt enjoy the combat system & that i had to be guled to me PC to play it.

The story is pretty basic nothing new in it & i wont get into alot of details you would just have to save the world from a certain race & you would have to do it alone. Its an open world RPG but it actually lacks making decisions or that a certain decision could alter your game play. The story can be a bit confusing but even if you didnt understand it fully it wont affect the game & that is one of the negative issues that i faced while playing it. Kindgom Of Amalur is competing against Skyrim, Mass Effect, Fallout & Dragon Age which are really huge names in the RPG genre & no matter which one of those you’ve played all of them had a great story to offer.

As in most RPGs you build you character the way you prefer based of course on 3 main attributes Warrior, Mage & Ruge while you can mix it up & play as Mage Ruge or a Warrior Ruge its all up to you to decide, of course im always prefer a Mage/Warrior style.

Now lets talk about what really makes this game special which is the combat system, its a bit like fighting games with so many moves & combat combination that will keep you hocked up to the game. I really had alot of fun fighting i can say that its the best combat system in any RPG game Ive ever played, i can compare it to God Of War combat system.

The amount of side quests are almost endless & will differently keep you busy and eager for more fighting. When i first began playing Kingdom of amalur i thought it will be boring but i could not get enough of it although the story is boring a bit but the fighting scenes kept me hocked up & having alot of fun.

I would highly recommend this game is you like fighting games, World Of Warcraft or just wanna have alot of fun without woring about the story. As for RPG gamers it wont hurt to give it a try but dont expect that its gonna surpass you favorite games like Skyrim, Mass Effect or Fallout.
