Eight years on, Kingdoms of Amalur still feels, looks and plays just like it did when it first released — and not for the best of reasons. THQ Nordiq missed out on a ton of opportunities to fine-tune many of its kinks, which look really outdated in today’s gaming landscape. Otherwise, it’s always nice to dive back into one of the most underrated fantasy RPGs in the past decade.
Cradle Games’ attempt at keeping the Souls-like genre alive is a commendable, albeit flawed, one. Its intrinsic weapon system and atmospheric design indicate there is potential for Hellpoint to be a truly awesome carrier of the Souls-like torch, but ultimately falls flat in execution.
