Spong: It might not change the face of RPGs forever, but Kingdoms of Amalur really delivers everything it sets out to regardless. The combat is brilliant, fast-paced and engaging with a good amount of depth thanks to the wealth of weapons and abilities to choose from. But while it’s definitely the combat system that makes KoA stand out, the rest of the game does its job too. The world is large and beautifully designed, and there are tons of side quests to keep you busy.
KoA perfectly fits the gap between huge and deep games like Skyrim and flashier but shallow games like Fable. It’s big, entertaining, and highly accessible to newcomers.
