If you’ve been soldiering through Skyrim’s scenery for the past few months, now might be the time when you’ve just about finished everything it has to offer. Fancy a new RPG to get your teeth into? Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning might just be your answer.
I didn’t really want to start talking about Reckoning with a comparison, but it is so hard to get away from in the RPG genre, so I’m just going to get it out of the way and move on. I like to think of Reckoning as the game that is squashed nicely on the role-playing bed between Fable and Skyrim. It’s almost as though 38 Studios and Big Huge Games saw the mistakes that Lionhead made with Fable 3 (and some could argue, Fable 2), and developed something far better in some respects.
