With The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim still spinning in most RPG enthusiasts’ systems it would be easy to overlook Big Huge Game and 38 Studio’s soon to be released Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. However, the more I see of Kingdoms of Amalur the more convinced I am that dismissing this game would be a huge mistake. With each new preview I’ve seen, not to mention the demo, I find myself getting more and more excited about what this game has to offer.
So here are my Top 5 reasons to not overlook Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
With many of the top tier games of today coming in at totals of eight to ten hours, the length of a game has become a selling point by itself. Kingdoms of Amalur’s developers have recently stated that some of the “speed runs” of the game, wherein the tester completed every quest, took around two hundred hours. That’s a very encouraging number to gamers looking to throw down sixty big ones on a game.
