You say Darksiders has better combat, but of course! It's an action game, of course an action game is going to have more visceral combat than an RPG. That said, the combat in Reckoning is no slouch either. It's the closest RPG combat has come to the exciting and visceral experience of an action game. Thankfully, Reckoning is much more of an RPG than an action game.
Both are action games with some RPG elements,stats on gear and skill trees are similar,KoA is more open and some quests have minor choices.I think they would have been better with more closed world if they have nothing to fill it with.

KoA is pretty casual game(same as darksiders).Anyway I probably shouldn't mention Darksriders 2 because while it's fun game it has no place in game of year thread but neither does KoA.

On topic: I voted KB:WotN and first and DS as second choice for RPG of the year and Avernum and ToME for indies.But I feel that 2012 has been more fruitful for strategies and adventures.
