EA and Big Huge games took the “think, therefore I am” approach when telling us all about Reckoning. They’ve acted, from the start, like this was already a blockbuster game from a blockbuster franchise despite it being a new game from a new franchise. Was this confidence in what they knew to be a superior product or simply cockiness? As it turns out, it was Confidence as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is one of the best RPGs I’ve ever played."
