Neocrisis - Was Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning EA's answer to the Elder Scrolls and Fable Series? The comparisons have been made and it may be quite a valid one at that.
I really wish someone would have picked up this IP, it had great combat and a lot of potential.
KoA is simply amazing, I couldnt agree more.
loved the game - I'd always hoped to see another one made.
Same here, was really hoping for a sequel (with a jump button! lol).
Agreed, really fun game.
The combat in this game was so fun and fluid. It was a real standout from the combat in Fable and Elder Scrolls. If someone could marry the humour/charm of Fable, the RPGness of Elder Scrolls, the graphics/visual spectacle of Horizon and the gameplay of Amalur then perhaps Witcher 3 would have a worthy rival for best RPG of the generation
We'll need to see what Playground does with Fable, assuming the rumor is true.
We may be expecting a bit too much from Playground. To hit all those checks on their first try would be quite the feat. I'd be happy with the Fable gameplay and humour plus the Skyrim RPGness. Wanting Horizon graphics on top of that is going to require a bigger team and a lot more time! What GG managed to do was just short of miraculous because the gameplay in Horizon is super fun as well.
The game was fun and there was room for improvement. Sadly a sequel won't ever happen. I wish it would though, I just doubt anyone will buy it from Rhode island.
Apparently some have tried but their bids weren’t to Rhode Island’s liking so the IP remains hostage.
That's because they want too much for it. They're trying to sell Kingdoms and that Project Copernicus MMO together. They should just separate them and offer lower prices. I wish Schilling wouldn't have tried to make the MMO and Kingdoms simultaneously, he bit off WAY more than he could chew.
The combat was the only decent thing about the game. The whole thing was set up like an MMO otherwise, and it sucked.
This is a really sick RPG. I sunk a lot of hours into this game.
I couldn't disagree more. The show billed your character as the only one who had choice in a world where everyone was controlled by destiny, but the game didn't let you make any real impactful decisions. Sure, the combat was good and the art style pretty, but this game is hardly 10/10. More like a 6 or 7.
Really underrated game.
I don't know if I would give it a 10/10, but KoA was definitely one of my favorite games last generation.
Great hidden gem, but definitely not 10/10. I would say 8/10 or maybe 8.5. this is coming from someone poured hundreds of hours into the game. This was basically my "escape title" when too much time was spent with Skyrim or dragon age. Definitely an underappreciated gem of a game.
I would have take a remake of this on switch instead of skyrim since nobody played it.
Love this game, however came across a glitch right before a boss inside a cave and all my saves were inside that damn cave...I had to drop the game after too many hours were put into it.
10/10? I played this game all the way a looong time ago and by no means is it anything close to a 10/10 It's a solid 8
How old is this game? How relevant can a review at this point in time really be? "Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning could quite possibly be the PS3's answer to Fable." the review is from like 2011... why is it even here now on N4G?
Best RPG I've ever played. First hour was pretty bleh, after that it's pretty incredible.
