Having played the Demo through, I was extremely disappointed. All hopes that this would be a special game, coming from Ken Rolston, were dashed after an hour or so of playing the demo. The caroony, fluffy coloured WOW graphics made me want to puke to be honest, 4 boring races to choose from, combat is rubbish, click the X button numerous times. It just felt a rip off clone attempt of Divine Divinty DKS, which was much better to be honest. I can`t believe some people were touting this to beat Skyrim. Skyrim stomps it into the ground and laughs at it`s lightweight corpse..
RA salvatore makes amazing books like the dark elf dritz ... but on this one ... i dont expect a huge innovation... YET it looks like a wow/fable/elderscroll hybrid :o , if it has all the strong points from those games ,then it might end up being a cool game ! the combact system seems really sweet too.
@shaks101 i am with you at that but i am pretty sure that's not the final game and most likely a alpha version and will improve upon release
I'm looking forward to this, but the trouble seems to be this: will we be done with Skyrim by the time this is released? I know I probably wont.
@GhostOfWar75 Even if they did what does it matter?(Which I'm going to have to disagree with you.) Why do gamers judge a game by it's graphics first and not the gameplay. I love great graphics too, but I'm here to play a good game. If the game is fun a game is fun. Graphics should just be bonus. But thats just me.
Ahh i miss the cartoonish graphics of games. It's nice to see a game or two with such looks.Hope the game is long and huge, it sure looks fun.
People really need to do more research before likening this to Fable. The similarities are purely superficial. This is a traditional open world CRPG with a more dynamic combat system than usual. The Fable games aren't even RPGs honestly and the combat is extremely simplified (the first Fable had some combat depth, but the other two had none).
This game is starting to remind me of how the Fable series is and I'm fine with the action RPG thing and I'm still going to get this game, I was just simply pointing out that this game really remind's me of the Fable series with the art style and the combat, still looks good though and Fable one is still the best.
@Robsonbmw Yes that block, roll, slash, block, roll, slash combat is so amazing. This has nothing on that. /sarcasm
Been tracking this for a while now, even though it's not my most anticipated title, it's definetely going on my play list. game on!
I wonder if it will support coop or any kind of multiplayer interaction? I know this was originally built as an MMO so I wonder.
@theDexx1995 Have you even played Dragon Age or Dark Souls? Because if you had, then you'd know that each game has a completely different combat system. And this game's combat system is nowhere near anything like the systems in Dragon Age and Dark Souls. Dragon Age combat revolves around positioning characters properly and then using appropriate abilities, while Demon's/Dark Souls combat is centered around more defensive/tactical combat, striking when you have the chance to do so while taking as little damage as possible. If you think you can play Demon's/Dark Souls like this, then you'd be mauled alive by the game.
@theDexx1995, did you just say that this has the same combat system as demons/dark souls? if so then you must have a low iq because the gameplay in this is basically fable, which is nothing like dragon age and if youve played demons souls you would know that dark souls is nothing like this
@Robsonbmw its looks the same as dragon age and this one. so dark souls has the same arcadey combat system PS play skyrim much better
@loojtuam Please tell me you're not serious man.This has better combat system than Dark Souls? What a joke.Dark Souls has the most refined combat system for ages on any platform and you say that this non fluid,overly blinky,candy like,meet my pink Pony,overly arcadey combat wannabe is better? You made my day...
its a gud thing am now in to rpg's so am get all ths rpg's once am done with the block buster shooters of the year (cash permiting ofcoz)
Dear god. NOT AN MMO - single player RPG etc etc. You are welcome misguided people who think otherwise and have been ignorantly confusing others.
@godsend1989 this is definitely no mmo -.-' This is a role-playing game like fable but better, like skyrim but with better action system :P
I've read of few articles about this in various magazines and the idea behind Reckoning is for the combat to provide something exciting and new. If you watch the interview with Rolston you says it outright. Also Reckoning is a single player game with the main character (you) being the first to have risen from the dead and because of that you do not have a fate. This is why you are not restricted to a single class. Reckoning is however a base for a follow up MMO which will use the well of souls (i forgot what they call where you resurrect from) as the origin where all the players will resurrect from.
I like the graphics, looks a little cartoon like but very much reminds me of the Fable series. I'm going to look into this game and keep and eye on it.
