Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was 38 Studios first; and last, roleplaying game. The game is fairly fantastic with a rich lore and the best combat system i've seen in an RPG in far to long. Sadly both the game and studio went under after about one year, leaving us with their single piece of work and a series of DLC updates including two long stories.
All things being fair, it is basically impossible to die in the game. For all intents and purpouses it is every bit a power-trip game with excellent controls and a fun graphical style, while offering an ARPG style loot system. I defenitly feel this game is worth picking up, particularly whilst both the game its self and all of its DLC are 70% off!
