Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning review

Reviewed August 04, 2015

sashanan says: "Amalur was to be the setting for further games, not the least of which an MMO, but nothing else materialized as the studio went bankrupt after releasing just this one game. It sold well enough, but its development went over budget so badly that nothing but miraculous sales would have resulted in a profit, and that didn't happen. Fittingly, because while I enjoyed my time with it, it's not a miraculous game either."
