Reckoning Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

, | Games

At a recent press event, Electronic Arts let a bunch of us press guys just sit down at the beginning of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and do whatever we wanted. It was a lot more instructive than the demo at this year’s E3.

If there’s one thing I came away with after playing Kingdoms of Amalur for a few hours, it’s that it doesn’t really compare with Diablo III, Skyrim, or Mass Effect 3. The closest analog I could come up with was Divinity II. You probably didn’t play that, so it might not help.

Read the preview here. I’ll also be on the next episode of Roleplayers’ Realm, Gamepro’s RPG podcast, to talk more indepth about the game.
