    @smoge…I have this game. So far so good! Its a big change from Skyrim,but a welcome change. The combat is fast and furious….very satisfying. The story….Im still trying to digest it, only a few hours in. The world is very colorful and vibrant. Doesnt have the tone of realism that Skyrim has,but thats not a bad thing….just different. The player creation and leveling up are satisfying. Like I said….so far,so good! Best thing about it is….on PS3….NO TECHNICAL ISSUES…but only a few hrs in so we shall see

    Thanks benzo. I was going to get skyrim, but as the latest patch still hasn’t fixed the game I’m kind thinking; wait till skyrim is fix or get this?

    get skyrim, its got a much better story, characters, and a much more beautiful world to enjoy.
    crafting and upgrade system is far better too.
    in short skyrim is a proper RPG, where this is a action adventure game wanting to be a RPG.
    just goes to show even crap can reach number 1 when theres so little releasing!

    Nick, how can you call Reckoning crap? Dude, you cannot be a real gamer. First, when FPS sells you say all sorts of things, now a RPG is shinning for a change, a good one at that and you call it crap? SMH

    right, so if you dont like a poorly made, restrictive, repetitive, ugly cheap game your not a real gamer?
    well then i guess i wont need to write any more articles for ya then.
