KoA: Reckoning - Review Roundup # 7

by Aries100, 2012-03-05 23:56:12

More reviews have been forthcoming for this game. I'll quote from two of them and list the others.

Montreal Mirror, no score, has a review.  A quote about the leveling up:

Although an important part of Reckoning, levelling up isn’t all that satisfying. The best thing about it is that it lets you change your avatar’s fate, which is essentially a chosen class that opens up to you depending on where you allot your level up points. Reckoning is the sort of game where the scope is far less daunting than it initially seems. The quests are compressed in the same hot spots, and there are enough experience points to broadly improve your avatar’s skills without needing to concentrate on specific attributes. At the very least, your avatar’s transition from corpse on a slab to dexterous fighter capable of vanquishing brutes with fatalities (!) is brisk.

Chronicle Herald, no score, also reviewed the game. A quote about the narrative:

The narrative about a mysterious hero who suddenly finds himself as the unlikely lynchpin in a world-spanning conflict is nothing that hasn’t been done in other games, but the storyline in Reckoning finds a decent home walking the line between the epic and the emotional. Players are free to customize their character as they progress along archetypical paths of a warrior, rogue or mage.
