Why didn't they make these improvements in the first game?

Woulda make them alot more money from making a better game and saving the studio

The first game is good! It's gonna sell slowly for a while.

38 just messed up the budget. Kingdoms will eventually hit a million like Alan Wake.

Yeah, its easy to pick apart after the fact ...

... But the fact is, Amalur was a Fantastic Game. It was a giant game that was just so much fun. Characterization, Making and Naming you own Weapons, the World they created for the game to exist in ... everything was great. I loved it. My 2nd favorite Action RPG this Gen behind Origins.

Too bad what's happening with the company right now. Hopefully EA can find a way to continue the franchise!

KoA: Reckong has sold over 1 million copies... The problem is, the game needed to sell at least 3 million to break even (as 38 Studios had been loaned so much money for the MMO's development).

I liked the first one I actually bought it to support the company as well.

Good, the first one was ok. But not worth a sequel.

This game was terrible compared to Skyrim and other action RPG's released this year so i don't feel sorry for 38 studios. Why would create a cartoony action RPG at the end of a console cycle and release it the same year as other blockbusters are released. They were lucky to break a million sold world wide.

I thought it was an excellent first game from 38 studios - and one which more and more people will pick up qnd appreciateover time.
In lots of ways, it very much reminds me of Borderlands. It would be a huge shame and waste, if Amular 's sequel isnt picked up and given every chance KoA:R should have had.
