Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Here's a mini-preview.

The combat is quite a bit more fun than Skyrim, but the game has a similar feel with lots of quests and what seems like a really large world. It's not quite as wide-open though because the maps have artificial barriers in them.

Skyrim I played almost exclusively stealth and archery because I hated the Melee combat system and found the magic to be weak and underpowered. In this one, the archery and stealth is still powerful, but the melee combat is fun, and the magic can be tossed in fluidly in battle without having to go into a menu and equip it. The battle system isn't quite as good as Ys Seven, but it's close.

*poke* Hey, UK people... You've been remiss in picking this up. Go buy it!

It's way down at 9th place.

Good job at buying FF13-2 though.

In the US, FF13-2 made 2nd while Amalur was 4th.

Re: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

I'm not big into these type of games...I think the last RPG I played was FFVIII, although I did try Oblivion...hated it tho, very frustrating and slow gameplay. I think I enjoy more structure to my games rather than being allowed too much freedom.

I had the same problem with Oblivion and Skyrim. Of course, JRPGs are nothing like this and are more linear. KOA is a mix of the two, there's lots to do but it's a hub and spoke sort of system where there's clear progression from one area to the next.

More people need to buy this game so the developer can keep making more.

Re: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Most RPGs are very different from that one. You should try some of the newer stuff.
