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.
