An underrated gem that's a better written Fable and is well worth your time. Released some time after Skyrim, the game was overshadowed by Bethesda's offering and went under the radar for some gamers. Despite this, Amalur outshines other Action RPG's with its huge and vibrant world, nice graphics, good story, clever quests, funny dialogues and interesting characters.


It's a shame that there wasn't a sequel because of some controversy but the future looks bright for Amalur whose IP was recently bought by THQ Nordic. Definitely on my list of top RPG's of all time, I'm hoping to see more of this IP in the future.

Let's say you long for a pervasive sense of time and place, for a great story featuring memorable characters, or for varied quests given weight by superb context. If that's you, then Kingdoms of Amalur will disappoint. Then again, you might want wonderful battles against cool creatures, terrific looting and leveling, and lots of ways to customize your skills and equipment. If so, then this is the world you should inhabit. The context is hardly inspired, but you'll be having so much fun that you may not care.

While not the first game to be called a hybrid of action and RPG, it certainly is the hallmark of the former, with the robust content that's generally expected of the latter. If you were hoping to be connected to the characters like you did in some of R.A. Salvatore's great fantasy novels, you will undoubtedly be disappointed. But Amalur is still a beautiful and immense world with plenty of secrets to discover and combat that is ceaselessly satisfying.

Kingdoms of Amalur is too long. With a faster main quest and the wildlife-slaying filler quests removed, the scenery would change faster and progression feel less like a grind. More care could have been taken in making each area feel interesting. The Faeland's verdant forests, sunny plains and deserts are pretty, but always derivative. It just doesn't feel like a place where people live, and there's no sense of discovery to exploring its lands.
