Kingdoms Of Amular: Reckoning Has Better Combat Than Skyrim


Lead developer for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Ken Rolston went on record stating that their upcoming game has better combat than award-winning The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

That’s what Rolston said while speaking in an interview with GameFront, he said: “The pace, fluid movement, tactical richness, and physical and visual theatre of fantasy combat has always seemed the weakest feature of video RPGs, and Reckoning offers a fresh new answer in that department.”

He also said the two games have a lot in common: “Both games are Way-Too-Big, and have Way-Too-Much-to-Do, and they both seduce you into playing for hours and hours and hours.

They both have whacking big epic storylines, and elaborate faction quest lines, and boatloads of quests, and lots of characters and books, and lots of crafting and alchemy, and lots of ways to customize your character.”

Thanks, CVG.

    well everyone goes to skyrim because its a adventure game and adventure games are suppose to have awesome combat!
    but then the realise it does not, and leave.
    those who leave will flock onto this, but im not sure if they will stay or not.
    it just feels too cheap, and to be honest the combats not that much better then skyrims!
    the witcher 2, now thats the adventure game everyone wants!
    cant wait till it comes out on the 360, every time i boot up my PC it literally sets my video cards on fire!
