Electronic Arts will wake up happy this morning, as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is the new UK number one.
I can't decide whether coming in at 20th in its first week is good for Catherine or not. Either way, at least it is in the top 20!
Individual charts... http://www.chart-track.co.u...
A lot of folk who were interested in Catherine likely imported it before the UK release, I'd imagine
That's surprising that a game which hasn't been advertised much [an unknown game] does so very well. I mean I know it's EA but there's been a few EA games which have bombed. I honestly thought this game would be one of those. Looks like I was proved wrong.
I know i wasn't this at all, thought it would stuggle to sell tbh. Just because I haven't seen any advertising for it. But im glad its done so well.
We believe it's the first new IP to hit the top spot in quite some time. Seems to have little marketing (that we've seen anyway) so it's a little surprising, for sure!
@GodisaGeek It's the first new IP at #1 since Dead Island and the first new RPG IP to debut at #1 since Pokemon Red 12 years ago. And it's well deserved, great game.
people love massive open world RPGs.
Its great gameplay and character customisation deserves recognition and it is the studio's first game which mean's the problem's the game has will be likely addressed in the sequel. Those problems mainly being the generic world and characters.
i think its world is colorful and wonderful personally, it may be similar to many fantasy art styles but its not a bad thing and its a much appreciated change of pace from all the dark, gritty, and "realistic" approach many games take with their art style. imo its an excellent game, not without its fair share fo problems but a game that should def sell millions since its an amazing first try. my best comparison would be mass effect 1. ME1 released and while amazing, lacked a lot of polish but made up for it in the gameplay just being that good, kingdom does the same thing imo. my problems are.... lack of jump lip syncing block isnt as responsive as id like it to be cutscenes could be a little better nothing deal breaking though positives.... excellent story loads of quests art style combat more loot than most games put together and more i dont feel like listing...
The game has a terrible story from what I've played. It's really boring and generic.
The game is so much fun, definitely deserves it. I wish the RPG elements were a bit deeper, but it's a minor complaint.
now the darkness 2 was off the charts awesome way better then this pos fable remake. come on #1 really the withcer 2, skyrim, batman AC, ACR. i guess are UK brothers like kiddie games over great story plots an better graphics.
lol and american gamers like macho shooters.
