Amalur has the best combat in an RPG, better than Dark Souls- Ken Rolston

GB : Oh my, my. The hype is at an all time high, isn’t it? First saying that the in Amalur lore is richer than that in Elder Scrolls, saying that Amalur’s combat sets it apart from games like God of War and Skyrim, and now this. The game certainly looks awesome.

Not a quote, misleading title.

Yeah, you can't really compare the combat between the two games anyway.

Kingdoms of Amalur's combat is very much like Fable. In fact, I would heartily classify KoA as "Fable, but with less farting and more exploration and items to find".

The only upcoming game with combat that reminds me of Dark Souls is Dragon's Dogma. Kinda seems like a cross between Demon's/Dark Souls and Monster Hunter.

Misleading title, and false.

SilentNegotiator4248d ago

False as can be. KOA has some of the most loose, uninteresting combat I've seen in a while.

“AND Reckoning has the best combat ever in a CRPG, period. IMHO. Which you should immediately discount, since I have a vested interest.”

Ken Rolston meant it to be tongue-in-cheek.

And sites use it to get hits...

Dac2u4248d ago

That goes without saying. Out of context, that quote would make the person who said it look like an arrogant jerk.

MagicAccent4248d ago

Sound's exactly like something Molyneux could say, and be absolutely serious about.

I'm liking this game more than the Fable franchise already.

If someone actually DID say this, they would be wrong...

It's a good game, but it's about ten years too late.

solidboss4249d ago

thats my gripe with the game it feels just plain outdated.

Bundi4249d ago

What RPG features a better combat system? I'll wait.

Lord_Sloth4248d ago

Dark Souls. This game's Combat feels like the original Fable on the XBox and, therefore, is dated. Not bad mind you, and still better than Skyrim's combat, but still dated and in need of something more.
