REALLY REALLY GOOD GAME!!!!!,
This review is from: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
First I would like to start by saying i'm new to these types of games and really not that good at them but, the gameplay with this game not only makes it easy to follow but it's soooooo much fun. The graphics are incredible and the special effects are also incredible as well. You can customize your character and have an array of weapons and armor etc. to use. It's in third person so it really makes it easy for you to see and follow where your going as you take you way through an amazing adventure. So far for me the best part of the game is the fact that fighting and gameplay are very easy to pick up so it makes it much more fun when you know what your doing and also know what weapon you need or want to attack your enemies. Lastly the gameplay can take you through endless amount of hours because it's based on what you decide to do when you get to a certain situation which means no two games would be exactly a like. If your looking for a game that really is pick up and play with awesome effects go get this game, you won't be sorry.
PS - A flat screen is imperitive when playing this game to enjoy the graphics to the fullest. I play on a Panasonic 60" plasma with a bose soundbar so needless to say the graphics and sound are second to none. Enjoy!!!
Update 2/15/12--- I have had this game for a week now and it's getting better and better. The weapons are just amazing and the story is getting more and more interesting. The graphics just continue to impress me with how crazy they are. Reckoning is by far one of the best games i've played in a long long time and although Skyram will probably be game of the year (according to my stepson lol) this is right up there with it. He says he wants to get the game so we can play together online and see what we can do, that's how impressed he is and he's a hardcore gamer. When in Reckoning mode you just become a sick killing machine. Get out there and get this game YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED AT ALL!!!!
Final Update 3/19/12 ---- I just finished this game and it was by far one of the best video games i've ever played. Still have some side quests to complete but the main adventure is history, great ending by the way. The action, adventure, graphics, gameplay, fighting all just awesome. I can't wait for them to make a sequal or for Curt Shilling's Big 38 Studios to make another game. I am definitely a believer in what he's trying to do with his video games and the crew he got together to make this game is second to none. Please make a second Amalur and keep the great games coming Curt.
