Wasted PotentialSganotak | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all Sganotak's reviews »
If I had to describe KoA in one word that would be generic. The world is generic, the characters are generic, the plot is generic and the quests are generic. Such a shame for a game that wasted a huge amount of budget on hiring talent like Todd McFarlane and R.A Salvatore to create the game's world and lore.
If you ignore all of the above KoA can be quite a fun RPG since it features an excellent combat system, tons of loot, a very unique and vibrant class customization and leveling up system and a lot of interesting enemy types.
The cartoony graphics fit the game quite well and you will feel right at home if you enjoy games with similar art direction like WoW
The game also offers a lengthy main quest and lots of side quests which are unfortunately very similar to the boring grinding quests available in MMOs
If you can get past the generic nature of KoA, it is guaranteed that you will have a lot of fun with it since it is a very polished game, with tons of content and solid gameplay mechanics

If you like DA,ME or Oblivion/Skyrim,you gonna love Kingdoms.The game gives you almost endless possibilities of character design,combining classes,just whatever you want to do with your character you can do.The fighting is fun and looks very impressing no matter if your a rogue,knight or a mage.Dialogues are very similiar like in Bioware games,which is awesome.Graphics are beautiful,and so is the music.The story keeps you hooked up and makes you want to play. In short Kingdoms are awesome and you should at least try it!

The title has a component GDR really wide thanks to a series of spells but most of armor and weapons really immense, the paraphernalia is improved due to the presence of different types of weapons: long swords, swords, hammers, chakram, fae blades, daggers and bows. Inolte you have a large number of skills and the presence of cards of destiny that will be used to outline the main style of the character. The technical sector is very good thanks to a series of dungeons richly detailed, colorful and varied even though the graphics are hampered by a number of bugs and designed by polygonal models of characters lacking in detail. The sound is the highest level with great samples and with a soundtrack reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings. The game world is vast but not fully explored, and wide exploration is felt but too linear. The story captures immediately the player thanks to a well crafted storyline but to be mistress are secondary missions, able to keep the player glued to the screen for several hours. Finally Kingdoms of Amalur is a great game but is penalized by the lack of a true soul staff taking different elements from RPG noble, some game mechanics reminiscent of Skyrim, the gameplay is very similar to that of Fable, the graphics are similar to that of World of Warcraft even if characterized by a lot more detail and plots and the music all too reminiscent of lord of the Rings.
Good game though with flawsDemilisz | June 11, 2013 | See all Demilisz's reviews »
Kingdom of amalur isn't bad and it is sad how this game and it's developers ended. To put it simply - it looks like someone wanted to make a MMO, but at one point decided to change it into singleplayer instead. There is large world, many generic quests and even more monsters to kill and grind on them. You just do this alone instead of with friends. It is generic fantasy universe with immortal elves, division in them and now bad elves are trying to conquer the world. The nice twist is a class system (three basic: mage, warrior, rogue and many subclasses for this three and their combinations. Each class and subclas has their special bonuses), here called Fates and it is probably the brightest side of this game. Outside that - you are again Chosen One, special for some reason and must save the world, so plot isn't that special (though you may be interested tofind why you are special).
Worth trying, if you don't mind a lot of slashing.

Kingdoms of Amalur - Reckoning is a really good RPG with the good graphic,with its really good crafting system and awesome combat system.The only problem is that AI isn't so good but nobody is perfect.And also maybe they could increase the difficult since I was full might with skilled crafting and all crafting gear and Hard wasn't really that hard.But the RPG is must have or at least must try and if you choose the second you gonna have a bad time for not buying it.
