Amalur Impressions

#1  Postby Mononoke » Feb 18, 2012 7:46 pm

Hey guys.. I just bought this game. I have roughly 2 hours of playtime on my character. It's fun so far, but the game doesn't seem as epic as skyrim. The beginning of the game is alot like planescape. Hopefully the story get better. But the combat is really great

So not the modern equivalent of Citizen Kane?

I don't think it's ever going to be good comparing games' epicness to the Morrowind series - they're always going to be bigger and on a more epic scale. I still expect to find Diablo 3 a more enjoyable game, even while nowhere near the epicness of Skyrim.

Sure. Games that were in development for more than a decade always turn out to be innovative attractors of the masses through sheer game-play fun, awesome visuals and unique mechanics. Especially if they are sequels.

That said, Amalur does look like fun. I'd be inclined to support it just for the fact that it's a new IP trying to make it's way into the market.

Let me know how it goes, its the next game I'm considering buying, would really like a less broken game balance version of Skryim (Witcher 1/2 was brillant)

It's to do with the map markers. It's annoying when quest locations randomly dissappear.

Pretty standard stuff, not really going to have a quest that involves writing an inspiring poem

I likes house of ballads one. The theme of fate was very interesting. I sympathized with the villain.

:lol: I'll only be buying that particular game if it's on sale for $10 or less (NZD), and only because I'm curious to see how bad it actually is.

I have Kingdoms of Amalur sitting right here, but I've still got Skyrim to finish. Can't wait!

I'm a pretty high level character now. Having finished all the non collect 10 of something type quests in the main continent i have arrived at the winter fae continent.

The game is OK, combat is still fun. But i can't seem to find quality armor for a wizard though. Any suggestions guys?
