    Dont sweat the little things

    OK so I reviewed the game when it first came out and gave it a 9/10. After playing through 75 hours and beating it, I change the score to an 8. For some good reasons. Amalur has some of the best action rpg gameplay in a... Read Full Review

    A decent action RPG however its direction is slightly confusing from start to finish.

    Note: This is the PC version of this game and not the PS3 - I cannot review it under the PC version because, according to the site, I have already reviewed it for which I haven't.When you have a former major league pitch... Read Full Review

    A cohesive narrative and vibrant visuals bring the world of Amalur to life.

    As I glance through some other user reviews I see a lot of positive comparisons to some of the leaders of the RPG genre: Skyrim, Guild Wars 2, Fable, Diablo and Torchlight. Personally I saw the closest resemblance to Wor... Read Full Review

    Doesn't really bring anything new to the table, but it does everything else right to make a great RPG

    There's plenty of big budget franchises when it comes to RPG's, so developing a new, large RPG adventure is an ambitious project. 38 Studios has definitely delivered with their debut title, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.... Read Full Review

    I regret nothing.

    I have played many DLCs in the past and sadly the majority of them felt like left over scraps – stuff where the vermin are the only ones who would enjoy them. Void of any real storyline or simply additions to the m... Read Full Review

    Kingdoms of Amalur: amazing at first

    When I started playing KoA I was blown away. I shook my head violently at each and every negative review and thought: these guys have no idea what a good game is all about.I loved the style, gameplay, combat, skill trees... Read Full Review

    If you are planning just doing the main quest, you are giving this DLC a disservice.

    When the Legend of Dead Kel was first announced as a DLC for The Kingdoms of Amalur, admittedly I groaned a little. You know, zombies, pirates and then some zombie pirates. However, even though it had these elements, Dea... Read Full Review

    A Brave New World

    I had a good time with is title. Kingdoms of Amalur bring a lot of good action but I never got into the world with all the side quest. There is plenty to do and a lot of value in this game. The ability to skip the wo... Read Full Review

    RPG Well Worth Playing

    Kingdoms of Amalur surprised me. I do not often play demos put I gave the demo for this game a try shortly after it was released. The verdict? A big, fat meh. I was not crazy about the art style, particularly the cart... Read Full Review
