Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur

A new edition of Kingdoms of Amalur has released by THQ Nordic and we got to check out it’s high definition glory.

An war against evil brings our hero to the frontlines where he is quickly cut down. In Kingdoms of Amalur players were treated to a game world created by R.A. Salvatore, Todd McFarlane and the team behind the classic Elder Scrolls Oblivion. The Re-reckoning edition features updated graphics, new side quests and all of the downloadable content from the original. With such a pedigree I was very excited to try this game out.

For a game that was considered a hit I was shocked to have never heard of it during it’s original release. Overall it looks and feels like the older version of the game with a fresh coat of paint. Game mechanics and controls felt like Oblivion. In my opinion Oblivion felt dated by it’s first anniversary and so this plays like something the belongs on the Xbox 360 when it was first starting as a console and not over a decade later on the Xbox One. I spent two hours exploring the world and was left wishing I passed on the title or at least spent a lot less time on the game.
