Kingdoms of Amalur

When looking at Kingdoms of Amalur apart from Skyrim-clouded lens, critics found it to be “simply staggering,” raving over its gameplay and impressive world.  Yet, those who compared Kingdoms to Skyrim were inevitably disappointed, “If you put Kingdoms of Amalur against Skyrim, Reckoning will be pulverized – Bethesda’s roleplaying epic is superior in every aspect.”  Official Xbox Magazine UK wrote, “It rivals Skyrim’s scope, but as a genre piece (albeit a smart one), it lacks the other game’s mystery.”  Critics repeatedly cite Kingdoms of Amalur as a satisfying game if you’re looking for a way to kill “hundreds of hours,” but if you’re a hardcore RPG fan who enjoys real depth, “the ability to make real choices or play a role,” then Kingdoms is likely to disappoint.
