Is Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning the most accessible RPG ever?

"While its story and characters are less than memorable, Reckoning is a lot of fun to play and has a combat system that's good enough to stand on its own. Historically, RPG games don't even have much of a fighting mechanic, but the one in Reckoning is totally out of the ordinary - and that's a good thing".

no it isnt. And by accessible I take that to mean dumbed down

GribbleGrunger2072d ago

seriously? i'm having the time of my life with it. i just can't put it down.

Bebedora2072d ago

It's nothing short of a master piece. Quick loadtimes, great environments, fluid gameplay.

And I have to agree with you, GribbleGrunger. I dont want this game to end.

...I need to do some more quests now. Boost my Scout. Special moves to look forward to!

GribbleGrunger2072d ago (Edited 2072d ago )

i'm restricting myself to the opening areas first and getting everything i can before moving on. 32 hours in already and i have 4 more areas of equal joy to explore once i've completed the first area. i took a peek at the second area today just to tease myself. i'm a warrior mage myself :)

better than Skyrim? hell yes.

Bebedora2072d ago

Oh, I am very thorough. I do every quest I can get and just explore it as much as possible.

I have reached Helms keep. 17 hrs Lvl 8. Haha.

GribbleGrunger2072d ago (Edited 2072d ago )

slow down man! when i say area, i mean the different colours. there's at least 40 hours of play in the murky green area alone...

Bebedora2072d ago (Edited 2072d ago )

@GribberGrunger: Oh, sorry. I got it. :) ...40 hours? I can understand that! I have quests to be done still in the western parts of Helms. And the webwoods, and I think I have missed some caves and houses with potential more quests.

Accessible meaning great design, great UI and great gameplay.

The use of the word "dumbdown" is being thrown around way too much around here.

I am having a blast playing this game. I really like the fact that I am not tied down to a single path with my character build. At any point in the game, I can rebuild my character to experiment with different play style.

Witcher > Amalur > Skyrim

and Dark/Demon's souls is on it's own playing field

Wicther series in my opinion is by far the best rpg's ever made.
