To compare this game to Skyrim is like comparing Carmaggedon to Need for speed. They are just moderatly similar at best. Skyrim is a solo RPG close to perfection. This is an action game with RPG elements. Its a matter of taste really.
7.5 rating dude? The review doesnt even comes close to how good this game is. Minimum rating for this game would be a 8.5 and thats stretching it. And yea, i did complete this game all down to the last quest. There is only 2 reason you gave this a 7.5 Either skyrim paid you more to give it a bad review or Amalur refused to give you money when you blackmailed them for a good review. Head to IGN for a proper a review. It got a 9.5 score over there and the public comments agree with it.
I guess people are over KoA for the time being - no other posts?! I thought it this vid was a bit same-old. They didn't comment on anything new. I've always been impressed by this team's enthusiasm for KoA. They certainly aimed high, and while it doesn't seem like a revolutionary game, it looks like they struck gold with the combat which is a nice victory. I am going to pick it up tomorrow :-D
