Tough to say anything negative
, February 8, 2012
I really didn't expect to like this game, but after seeing so many sites praising it I decided to give it a try. What I found was far past my expectations. This game may have the best combat I've ever experienced in an rpg! At first, it may seem a simple button-masher, but as you unlock new abilities and combos, the action gets far more exciting! Unlike in Skyrim, I actually wanted to fight every enemy I came across.
This game doesn't skimp on the rpg elements either. In fact, I was overwhelmed with the wealth of features when I booted it up. There's a crap load of content in this game!
The graphics disappoint from a technical standpoint, but the art style is immaculate once you get past the drab first level. I really want to know why devs always make us slog through a linear bore fest in an open-world game.
It's really hard to think of something negative to say. The story's good(if you're into high fantasy), combat's tight, and the rpg elements are top notch. The only thing that was a little disappointing at first was the difficulty. Even on hard mode the game is a cakewalk.... unless you're like me and you like to explore in areas with enemies that are a much higher level than you. Then you get your ass whipped.
Conclusion: buy this game. Don't hesitate, just hit that add to cart button and camp outside your mailbox. I wasn't disappointed with KOA: Reckoning and I doubt you'll be.
