Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning
Top Critic Average
Re-Reckoning is a reminder of what made the original great in 2012, but mostly a testament to how far we've come since.
Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning is a good solid remaster, just don't expect much to have changed compared to the original. The world is as magical fantasy as you could get, and it really does draw you in, but some technical issues and a number of repetitive quests can dull the otherwise colourful experience.
A notable remastered work, especially when you take into account the original game's limitations, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is a great way to discover this universe and a well earned second chance for a game that was unfairly forgotten.

Reckoning was a good game in 2012 but porting it to 2020 with all its issues was very disappointing, a truly missed chance to make this entertaining game more fun and enjoyable

A fairly easy and light RPG experience. Kingdoms of Amalur is a game that rewards the player with new gadgets and powers and tries to be a nice, laid back experience.

Kingdoms of Amalur is still a solid game even to this day. It's just too bad that as a remaster, the game is quite frankly disappointing.
It may not be the most important remake of the year, but Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is a gorgeous, dense, and charming adventure.
Re-Reckoning is the most barebones remaster it could possibly be. It's only barely been touched up visually, and the most gameplay changes are under the hood. If you've already played the game, there's no reason to return here.
Feeling very dated in both visuals and gameplay I really can’t recommend it at the full asking price, especially as there are ways in which you can still get hold of download codes for the original release at a fraction of the price. It may have been a different story had there been more work done bringing the game up-to-date and squishing those darn bugs, but this feels like nothing more than a cash grab to make up for some of the money spent on purchasing the IP. Wait for a price drop.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is the story of marketable talent crafting a competent-if flawed-RPG in 2012; Re-Reckoning is that same story hastily repackaged in 2020 and resold at an overinflated price point.
