Review: Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning is a disappointing remaster of a great RPG

With underwhelming improvements and little new content, this feels like a real lesson in the value of clear marketing

Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning is the same great game given a hi-res finish, but fans might be disappointed that it’s not more.

  • It’s the same great game fans love...
  • ... but it’s not much more than that.
  • The new stuff isn’t here yet.
  • Camera is awful in larger boss fights.
3 / 5
