Product Description

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a single player Action Role-playing Game (RPG) set in the brand-new game fantasy universe of Amalur. The game features an expansive Open World game environment, the unique "Destinies" system that limits character development only by the combination of equipped spells and items carried, intuitive yet challenging combat, a robust crafting system and a range of special attacks. Additional features include: the written and design talents of R.A. Salvatore, Todd McFarlane and Ken Rolston; dramatic special and metered attacks; as well as multiple in-game races.

Amalur: a New RPG Realm with an Proven Pedigree

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning takes place in Amalur, an all-new game universe inhabited by various races of beings and filled with thousands of years of history. This deep fantasy based world is the brainchild of best-selling Fantasy and Science Fiction author R.A. Salvatore and the combined talents of Todd McFarlane, the creator of the Spawn series, Ken Rolston, the lead designer of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and the team at Big Huge Games. Reckoning bears the hallmarks of each of these visionaries, melding an epic, master-crafted storyline, rich graphics and heart-stopping animations, and compelling open-world exploration. In addition to being the setting for Reckoning, this rich world will also serve as a base for a future trans-media entertainment experience, including books, toys, comics, and a planned MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online RPG) video game yet be announced.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a single player Action RPG that blends a new approach to character development with intuitive, yet challenging real-time combat. Characters enter the game as something of a blank slate after they are resurrected from death by the mysterious "Well of Souls" following a grand in-game conflict. Spurning the rigid character class systems commonly used in RPGs for the development of characters, the game instead focuses on player-shaped "destines" which hinge on the chosen combinations of abilities and equipped items and weapons attached to their character as the game progresses. With no traditional classes these are blended as the play wishes. This along with a large item inventory limit and a robust crafting system for creating new items, allows for a nearly limitless number of possible character paths, or destines.

Active combat plays a major role in the game as players explore the Open World environment of the game on quests that bring them into contact with all manner of creatures. Regardless of character paths, all characters have access to primary and secondary weapons as well as magic. Unique attacks are tied to your choice of weapons, armor and strategies. The game also features powerful slow-motion attack opportunities called "Fateshift Kills" triggered by specific situations and/or equipped items. These devastating attacks are measured out as players time moves to a separate "Fate Energy" power meter. Additional features include unscripted real-time battles against large-scale enemies, melee and ranged weapons and enemy tagging abilities for ranged or delayed attacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely underrated game February 18, 2014
By Tito
Kingdoms of Amalur puts nearly every Western RPG to shame when it comes to it's combat. You name it, Skyrim, WoW, all the top-dogs, they just don't compare to the style of gameplay and action that KoA Reckoning offers. I absolutely love this game. From the art-style which is reminiscent of Blizzard games, to it's beautiful music, and oh gosh that combat. Sweet abilities, with the flexibility to make your character fight in multiple styles. I'm making mine a rogue-sorceress. The equipment is cool, a nice crafting system, and a ton of side-quests and looting to go around in the world. If you're looking for a great single-player experience, look no further. This truly is an underrated game.

I got this game on sale in hopes it would be a good time killer until some other games came out.

Graphically, the game looks great. I like the aesthetics of the world they developed and it runs smooth on my mid-level PC. Plenty of options for different play styles, a story with a rich background if you want to lose yourself in the history of the world. Decent combat.

So why 2 stars? I got bored to tears. The side missions are all very similar - fetch this, hunt this down, kill this bad guy, etc. And if you don't want to do these missions, you just say "No thanks!" and continue on the main quest - no penalties, no loss of chance to do them (you can just go back and start the conversation again). You don't really LIVE in the world, you just are passing by, as if your actions don't have any impact. The main quest wasn't anything spectacular - just enough to move you from point A to point B.

Some people may love this game and I don't blame them; it just wasn't for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth your time August 18, 2014

Great game, with a story form R.A Salvatore whom happens to be my favorite author, the over the shoulder camera is my only real gripe with the game, keeps you from taking in alot of the beautiful scenery sometimes, combat can get dull after a while but the story keeps you engaged, loads of side quests, you get your money worth here, lots of hours of gameplay in this game. Its easy to change your characters combat style if you get bored and wana try something new, just go visit a fateweaver. this is a nice feature especially if you start as a mage and decide magic isnt for you, its a quick fix to switch to a rouge or warrior. Great game on the whole, often over looked title, Highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, although a bit long June 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
My son liked it so much, watching me play, I bought a 2nd copy for his PC. A bit on the too-easy side but some battles require a lot of strategy at lower statuses, or else reloading after dying. There's lots of crafting guides on the web - just search for "amalur gems" or "amalur blacksmithing", plus locations of trainers and skill books.

Best strategy I found was to try and visit all the skill trainers scattered across the land, earning just enough loot to pay their fees, and save the skill books until the middle or later in the game. There are some areas you cannot reach (Ysa for one) until you complete several of the main quests, so you should concentrate on doing them early if you want to max out your skills. Ysa alone has 4-5 trainers, Rathir 4 or so, etc.

Finally, save your game whenever you enter a new area, not just quick-save. I failed a quest when the NPC I was questing with died during a battle, and I found out my last save was from 2 days prior, which meant a lot of repetition if I wanted to succeed in the quest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game! June 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
My mom downloaded this game on her XBOX 360 and loved it so I had to try it out, 9 hours of play later at her house, I had to get it. (My teenage boys kept saying "Mom, when are we going home?", I kept saying "Just one more mission!") It reminds me of Fable, which I played time and time again and never got bored of it, sadly my XBOX went to Gamer's Heaven last year and I have not gotten another one.

I have been playing this on my computer for several hours a week since I got it. After checking compatibility I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to play it on my Windows 8.1 computer as 8 was not listed. My graphics card was not quite high enough either but the game plays great regardless. I don't see any lag or jumping during play or cinematic scenes. It is a little harder to play on the computer if your not used to playing with a keyboard/mouse setup. I played it that way for two days, then I hooked up the handy dandy gaming controller and with that help of a program to assign the keys, my controller is setup like the XBOX, much easier for me to play since I have never been a fan of keyboard play.

The flow of the game is pretty good, there are some things that take a bit to catch on to but once you figure them out you'll be good to go. (Once I figured out the tricks and inner workings I started a new game :D) The other thing I like about this game; if you don't like where your character is headed, you can visit the Fateweaver and reset your stats and rebuild your character without starting a new game. I would also suggest looking through Walkthroughs for extra tips and tricks to help you along your way. You can get in over your head on some of the side tasks/quests if your level/s in certain areas are not high enough so be wary of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome game!
Awsome game. Steam code is a plus, I am not a big origin fan and for this EA title to be available on steam I jumped on this when on sale.
Plays almost like Fable only better.
