Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning PS3 Review (2D-X)

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is 38 Studios’ 2012 open-world, fantasy role-playing game that surprised gamers with its unique take on fluid fighting and sandbox style gameplay. Unfortunately, due to underwhelming marketing, low sales, and a release date just three months after Skyrim‘s, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning crashed and burned, taking its studio with it (38 Studios declared bankruptcy and closed its doors indefinitely). However, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has had a recent spark of life due to its free-to-play Playstation Plus release. If you’re a PS Plus subscriber, consider this a title that you must check out. Although it may lack multiplayer functionality, its single player does not lack in originality.

The story is too old to be commented.

When you talk about fantasy role-playing game, my answer will always be Reckoning. For new gamers liker us, things have been made pretty simple and easy to handle. Just loved reading your review.

Really fun game.Always wanted to buy it but never got around to it.

Was worth the 14gb download.Shame it came to PS+ around the time as GTA V tho.Seems like this game is cursed with horrible timing lol

Love playing as rogue with them Fae blades and bow!

Not perfect by any means but that hasn't kept Amalur from being one of my most favourite titles this generation.
It just needed to be a bit more of a challenge and I would have loved an online coop variation.
