What can IThis game is absoutely amazing, when it comes to this special feeling, when starting into a new world. What has happened here? Why? What can I do to help? Can I even do sth. to make it worse? With itÂ´s plenty decisions and different quests the game just sucks you in. Although, when I first played the demo, it didnÂ´t really make me want to buy the full game (Steam only - Origin sucks!), after some critics I read, I figured out, that I still had to give it a try. And I donÂ´t regret it by far.
The charakter creation is quite sweet and the options for different builds during the game are awesome. For those (like me) who seem to fail-build all the time, there is an option (each time you level up) to reset all your points. Thanks for that!
The Story is quite interesting and some changes during the game hit me like a sledgehammer.
Most of the hundreds of side-quests have their own little story, they never felt like "been there, done that".
The Graphics look ravishing... and somehow remind me a bit of WoW. However, if WoW had those wonderful new look, IÂ´d play in Azeroth more often ;-).
ItÂ´s comic style, you have to like it (or you do not - nothing in between).
Sound effects are descent and the music score ist truly epic. Sometimes I just sit in front of my Asus and listen to the game. At the loading screen, it almost sounds like a mixture of "Batman begins" and the "WoW-Theme". Great!
Controls are easy to learn (and not hard to master). If you let tutorial advices help you, youÂ´ll not have any problems.
I did not finish the game yet, but my Steam says sth. about 80+ hours of play. So I might reach the finale soon. And I really am looking forward to it. Not because the game is boring, but because I really got into the story and I want to see, how it ends (if it does).
So, if youÂ´re looking for sth. after having "finished" Skyrim, and if you like comic style, then you should really buy Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
To me itÂ´s one of the Top 5 in 2012 even if this year hasnÂ´t even reached the half of it.
Is there sth. negative about it? Well, to me there isnÂ´t, yet. Maybe the ending will disappoint me, but that is yet to see....… Expand
