KoA: Reckoning - Legend of Dead Kel Preview @ IGN

by Dhruin, 2012-03-01 20:18:48

IGN has previewed Reckoning's first DLC, The Legend of Dead Kel with some interesting comments. Apparently the DLC runs to around four hours and here's a snip:

The island itself is as interesting a character as any other area of Amalur. Its pirate theme is prevalent without becoming overwhelming and cheesy. There is a sharp contrast between a bleak pirate fortress and a beautiful, colorful cave, for instance.

The real Achilles heel of The Legend of Dead Kel is Dead Kel himself. Imagine a melodramatic LeChuck who's missing his funny bone. He's a forgettable villain whose cartoonish, senseless goals are established poorly, even within the small scale of the story.
