Journey to a brand new Amalur environment filled with snowy tundras, deep caverns, and treacherous enemies, and visit mountain villages and the ancient lakeside city of Crownhold.
I shut the remaster off after about 2 hours. It is showing that age.
That's a shame as it's takes a while to get into but it's an enjoyable romp and better than a lot of trash in the current market.
I agree its better than a lot of current games, but it is not better than some of them and I would rather play those some than this one.
If you've never played the game, that's a shame. It's got great lore, judging by your comment that probably doesn't make a difference to you.
I like a game with a decent story and this one has it, but it's not good enough to overlook its age very few games are. Nostalgia isn't my thing.
A lot of developers tried hard to be as realistic as possible or use to best of their ability the cutting edge graphic technologies available to them for the hardware.. and especially in 3D worlds, it gets pretty obvious that these technologies and hardware are antiquated as time passes. The developers didn't try hard with Kingdoms of Amalur to be super realistic and cutting edge, I think right on release, I liked how similar the art style/gameplay was to Fable 3? . Any remaster will seem aged, but it's a pretty good/fun game, as long as you don't get too caught up in the graphics.
It was the gameplay mechanics that felt dated along with the rough edges. I mean it's alright, but I couldn't justify spending my time on that game over other games. Nostalgia isn't my thing really.
Dated game but I enjoyed my time with it. I remember being interested in the game during its original 360/PS3 run but like with many games something else caught my eye and I didn't play it. Well that and that little scandal that happened back then involving the games devs and Curt Schilling and what ever city they were in trouble with. lol Even dated I found the game to be fun. My only nitpick was because of the games troubled dev cycle there are a number of items at least when I played around the remasters launch that didn't even have icons. They just had placeholder images. Its more funny than anything but I've never seen anything like that in a game before.
