Kingdom of Amalur: Re-reckoning, a remastered version of 2012’s hit game that caught a lot of gamers who were into RPG with a storm. This was written by famous pop culture artist, Robert Anthony Salvator and Todd McFarlane who is known for his major hit of The Amazing Spider-Man and horror-fantasy series Spawn.
You get to choose from the four playable races. Almain (Civilized Humans), the Dokkalfar (Dark Elves), the Ljosalfar (Light Elves), and the Varani (Nomadic Humans).
This totally brings back memories when I used to play World of Warcraft in the early 2010 era. The skill tree and story advancement makes you crave for more quests, adventures and expeditions.
The game is set in Faelands, one of the Kingdoms of Amalur and also the home of immortal, Fae. By immortal it doesn’t mean one can’t die, but more of their essence to be reborn into another body. The entire Faelands is divided into a few regions, the Plains of Erathell, the forests of Dalentarth, the marshes of Klurikon, crystal kingdom of Alabastra and the canyon territories of Detyre.

You play as the “Fateless One” and prior to your death, you were revived in an experiment. The first and only success in the experiment. You venture out and escape the experiment facility to find more answers to why you were the only successful one who got revived.
The entire storyline is VERY engaging and there’s also a new difficulty addition to it.
The game was brought back to life by THQ Nordic and remaster began not long after that. It shares a lot of fond memories for a lot of old gamers and also a new experience for new adventurers who ventures into it. Controls are slightly dated but it handles well on the remastered version. Although the inventory system is still the same messy and cluttered, they also provide a significant quality-of-life patch after the game’s release, so fans may not run into the same issues in the old game and will make life way much more easy. The entire game is capped in 60 frames per second which allows for a very seamless gameplay and also for cutscenes.
Overall, it’s definitely an enjoyable game and it keeps you wanting more.
