As far as new IP’s go, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has hit the ground running – it’s rich, it’s engaging (once you get going), and there’s just enough to set it apart from the current Fantasy headliners. At the time of writing, the game has already...

Fateshifting makes even the toughest bosses pushovers.Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning begins with a back-from-the-dead storyline, which is appropriate because the early stages -- including a tutorial masquerading as an opening level -- feel stiff with...

The RPG genre has its major players—Bethesda, BioWare, and the like—with big ticket entries saturating the media and intimidating smaller scale developers. What typically spawns from the lesser-known studios either flops from poor execution or is...

I'll come right out and say it: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will be discussed when Game of the Year 2012 rolls around. It has brought the conversation about what combat can be in the role-playing genre to the forefront and sets the bar exceptionally...

In my last Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning preview , I wished that I could get more hands-on time with the game. Yesterday, I got my wish during a hands-on session that gave me a couple of solid hours with the game. In many ways, the timing was perfect....

Mit Kingdoms of Amalur hat EA ein durchaus sehr fesselndes Rollenspiel geschaffen, welches ein sehr kurzweiliges Kampfsystem beinhaltet, das durch schöne Effekte gut in Szene gesetzt wurde. Wenn auch die optischen Auswahlmöglichkeiten für die...
