Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning (Series) Review
Posted: 8 months ago, last updated 5 weeks ago.
You play through five distinct regions, four races with complex career paths and upgrades. As you gain experience you level-up through the skill-tree. You can also collect and craft a range of armour and weapons. Along with exploring the world, combat is fast and frantic. You need to press buttons with precise timing and in combination. These culminate in brutal finishing moves.
You learn about the world by talking with the population (or choose to rob or kill them). How you treat townsfolk has consequences, though. Particularly if you need their help at a later point in the game.
It's a huge game with almost endless lands to explore. This scope, it supported by a deep level of lore created by New York Times bestselling author R.A. Salvatore. Add to this the countless side quests rich in political intrigue, romance, sinister magic, and even whimsy and this is an enjoyable place to spend many hours.
The Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning brings this world to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, with enhanced visuals and game mechanics. A Nintendo Switch version is planned for release in March 16, 2021.
