Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Cheats
I don't care for the limited amount of exploration, you know ... only the certain path for the story is the only place you can walk.
I too am hoping I have formed my opinion too early, being it is based on a limited demo release and all.
I'll wait and see how other gamers review it before I shell out the ridiculous amount of cash expected for it.
this core of this argument is alot closer than wow is to runescape, EQ or even SWTOR yet theese games get compared all the time.
all in all both games have pros and cons and from a long history of RPG games it is very easy to see how certain elements of a engine can cause issues in long run and how certain flaws are overcome.
as for price tag idk i think its far, god knows ive paid more for less. i was never going to get game or even had it on radar except that i got ME3 goodies from it. now that i tried it i am def going to get.
game earns a straight 8/10 from me with def room to grow once full comes out.
in comparrision i am a TES fan and yet skyrim got a 7 once i played it because while nicer graphics the game left me disapointed by no magic at all(at least non that fitted a mage was generally shunned), engine was nearly identical to obliv and they went backwards with staff combat and archery was even worse than obliv. so as wise gamers say, you can make a good guess off a demo but the true value of a game comes its release and its first bugs.
He's buying the game day-1.
As for me, of the two games coming out literally days before my birthday, I have no idea whether I want The Darkness 2, or Kingdoms of Amalur more. That's how much I expect of the game =D
I like the hack and slash style of the game KoA:R is much more of an Action game then RPG where The Elder Scrolls saga is much more RPG then Action, with all the emphasis on cave/dungeon crawles and skills.
KoA:R seems to be more like Dungeon Siege with emphasis on the abilities of a certain character type. Take the thief He/She would use daggers, stealth, and slight of hand (lockpick, Pickpocket) so the skill tree would show the dagger, stealth, and slight of hand abilities you can upgrade.
I will buy this game but I may wait and check out Cheapy D's site for the lowest prices.
