This will be another short post, but I just had to talk about a game I recently revisited, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. It’s what I guess you’d call an action RPG; I’m not hip to all of the gaming category names. Anyway, it’s a really solid game. The gameplay, while admittedly on the easy side, is really fun. There’s nothing like throwing around elemental chackrams and decimating hoards of enemies. The quests are fun and pretty damn interesting at times, and the scenery is colorful and absolutely beautiful.
The game suffers from most of the usual fantasy game tropes, one example being one of the main characters having bikini armor to the extreme. That said, the game had so much potential. The sad part is, it’ll probably never get a sequel due to (I believe) the publisher shutting down. I really wish someone else would pick it up and make one (BioWare pls), but I doubt it’ll ever happen. All I can do is play the original and wistfully think of what could’ve been.
