KoA: Reckoning - Legend of Dead Kel DLC Review @ GameSpy

by Dhruin, 2012-04-11 02:02:53

The first Amalur paid DLC The Legend of Dead Kel has been reviewed at GameSpy for a score of 4/5. A "big, fresh area" is praised but "still too easy" is the major con:

Not just pirates, but zombie pirates. I rolled my eyes when the Legend of Dead Kel was announced awhile back and half expected to run into glimmering vampires, robots, and Justin Bieber in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning's first DLC. I even anticipated writing a first paragraph so contemptuous that you, the reader, would be sure to picture the smug look I'd be wearing. What I didn't see coming was how much I would enjoy traveling to the new continent of Gallows End and hunting down the dread undead pirate Kel. I'm still not sure any of it jives with the tone of the rest of Reckoning's lore, but I really don't care, because Legend of Dead Kel is my favorite adventure yet in the Kingdoms of Amalur.
