    The Legend of Dead Kel is an almost perfect DLC - a long, engrossing adventure full of new stuff. There are some weaker missions and the main character isn't the most interesting one, but the overall high quality casts a bright light on those minor flaws. I recommend this DLC to all Amalur fans.

    It's clear they had as much fun making The Legend of Dead Kel -- a big, bawdy adventure that's loaded down with loot -- as I had playing it.

    TLODK offers a rather poor package. The main quest, mildly disinteresting, will keep you company for about four hours (side quests included), the level cap is unchanged and only two new types of creatures are added (not counting the four bosses of medium difficulty). [May 2012]

    KoA is Not a hard core game. There is quite a bit of content.. first play through will likely be around 65-75 hours worth. The biggest criticism of the game is it's far to easy to undermine the challenge. While I normally am a completionist, this style of play will lead to outlevelling most of the content. The main quest lines are the best, though they could be better. The combat system is simple, but fun.. with fate shifts adding a "Cool" factor and a bit of practicality due to xp gain. You will be able to craft the best gear in the game. Character appearance was ok, plenty of room for improvement. Character progression is fun and you can always start over and redistribute any time you choose. Graphics are pretty solid. Oh and another thing you have to come to grips with is the fact you can only jump in certain areas at pre-determined locations. All in all, it is fun and more than likely worth your time. Expand
