Q. “What can you tell me about the game?”
A. “Set in the Kingdoms of Amalur™ universe, Reckoning will offer unrivaled RPG action combat, seamlessly integrating magical and melee attacks into an innovative and visceral experience. Reckoning includes hundreds of quests, characters, creatures, weapons and spells. More details about the game will be revealed over the coming weeks and months.”
The developers are promising one of the best mixtures of combat and story writing so far in an RPG and if you've played the demo you will agree with them. The game offers a fairly good variety of skills to unlock as you level up and a simple inventory system for your character; but also taking the cartoon style graphics to create the world imagined by R.A. Salvatore is a good way to go.
EA’s link to Mass Effect also allows you to unlock in-game items in both game demos. If you complete the Mass Effect 3 demo then you unlock Omni-blade daggers in Kingdoms of Amalur and if you complete the Kingdoms demo then you unlock a tasty piece of armour and a chakram launcher in Mass Effect 3; so it’s worth playing the demo’s if you plan to get one of the biggest RPG’s in recent years.
So keep counting down to February 10th and soon you’ll be playing what is supposed to be one of the must play games of 2012.
