A Really Cool and an Awesome RPG
First of all, thanks to Flipkart for gradually increasing their scope of selling goods from Books to Games. I must've bought about 12 games after I came to know about this.
I've bought the PC Version of this game and am using an XBox Wireless Controller with a Gaming Receiver to play this Game. Like all modern Games, the Connection is instantaneous. The moment you connect with an XBox Controller, the Game changes according to your settings, which is Way too cool, as this is my First game with a Controller.
The CD was brand new. Not a single scratch and even though I didn't order for any special packing, the Bubble wrapping was done very neatly and perfectly so that the goods are not damaged in any possible way. So, good experience there.
Coming to the Game, it should be played on an XBox, or a Controller should be used for you get the Ultimate feel of the game. The Inventory system of this Game is really good. Almost every character in this Game will respond to you, something which is very good for the First Game launched along the lines of Amalur. I will not say that this Game felt similar to skyrim because both these Games are the best in their own rights and ranges and Amalur is something that is really cool.
What is really exciting while playing this game is the Combat. I felt akin to Darksiders, including the Finishing Moves and the Reckoning Phases. unlike Skyrim where the Combat appeared somewhat Bland, the Combat of this Game is really exciting. I was very much happy to see that I had captured the core concept of this Game, for IGN and the other Gaming sites have applauded this Game for its Combat which is very very refreshing when you are playing an RPG.
The Graphics are not as cool as the Game, but of course dont let that fool you. I played a Demo on a Slow System which was very bad and when I instantaneously jumped to the Real Game, that too with a Controller, I was extremely satisfied.
In addition to that, there are Tons and Tons of Side Quests. Loads of them. You have Skill Trees which lead to an Increase in your Powers and Skills where you cna either be Jack of All Trades or a Master of None. While making those choices, I felt akin to choosing my Own Career. Should I be an Engineer? Or should I join the Military? Or should I do both? If you feel that Correlation, then you'll truly enjoy the game. You'll feel your own character learning and progressing, which feels really good, as you can Customise your character to the Maximum Extent Possible.
Hope that Darksiders 2 turns out to be as Cool as this. Though I know that the Combat of Darksiders 2 is really really Cool.
In any case, Buy Amalur without any hesitation. I guarantee you. If you play 2 hours everyday, then you might be playing this game for2 - 3 months to come, if you really explore everything.
Have a Good Gaming.
