kingdoms of amalur, wowlaowai's review--

first person rpg not unlike skyrim, with a decidedly WoW feeling to it, also has elements of many other popular rpgs (fable). KoA has nothing new, but it presents everything old in a good mix and an enjoyable style.

KoA features is a classless system, with 3 skill trees, Sorcery, Might and Finesse, this allows you to make pure magician, warrior or thief, i play a hybrid adventurer with points in all 3 trees. Unlimited respecs is are also available for in-game money.

I find this game quite addictive, more so than Skyrim. The graphics are "not as good" but the result is much better combat, better armor sets and more interesting weapons. (IE, i'm skilled in greatswords, wands and bows, and something called fea-blades which would immediately remind any WoW player of Illidan's weapons) Just through random playing without a guide. (I actually got some epic version of these weapons in a quest not long after starting the game) Yes the gear is purple, blue, green and white.. lol.

The game also features a point-buy tradeskill system that is fairly well made, I'm specialized in alchemy (which includes herbalism) because I can make potions for free from things I find. Also I specced detect-hidden because it lets me spot extra chests / gold / monsters and doors.

The game has several (4-6) weapon types for each skill branch, and something like 22 abilities with various ranks in each branch. I'm sitting about 15 points in each tree because I wanna check out the gameplay fully, and like I said it's quite enjoyable. If you like the idea of a single player WoW, with improved combat (like Skyrim type) you will like KoA.

Here is a picture of my 3rd of 4th character, who is of a group of races that seems very similiar to night-elf. She is wielding level 3 epic "Fae" blades. (Daggers and blades are equipped as a set).

ye i played so far, i am 2 handed swords woman, i made it to house os sorrows quest line and just finish it. It good game. The guy who design the game also made morrwinds and oblivian. he said is oblivian and god war together. It is little childish in some areas. To me it feels like fable3 little but it ok. I got done witch witcher 1 and 2 pretty bad ass game those 2. Skyrum really sucked for me with all walking and the world just way to big for me. I try mass effect 1, 2, and 3

I find the UI a bit repulsive. Otherwise, the combat style is more like WoW's? Skyrim's, in my opinion, was terrible.

1) the combat system is really a hybrid of many systems and certainly not as simple as skyrim, imho.

for example you can dodge roll in any direction to avoid attacks, you can shield block or if your a mage you can blink dodge.

weapon attacks are similiar to skyrim, except more power attacks, dual attack is certainly much more interesting.

2) the ui is a bit of a weaklink for KoA, but it's ok Smile and still better then skyrim, imho.

btw, boss fights are really awesome, more like boss fight events usually with lots of adds and moving around, chasing, running, sometimes have to clear a whole dungeon (with traps or not) while fighting a boss.
