I Never Finished…Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning…Because

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

This is one of those rare PS+ games that I actually didn’t have. Most months as of late, when PS+ games are announced it’s usually something that I don’t want or something that I already own because I buy a lot of games. This was one of those times when that didn’t happen and it was surprising. Anyway, I had wanted to play this game since I had first heard about it because if you read this blog you know how much I love RPG’s. Anyway, there was just something about this game that didn’t click and it ended up on this list. Keep reading to find out why.

When starting the game you find your chosen character trapped in a dungeon and just waking up. Turns out that was because you were dead and brought back to life during an experiment. When you died you were a “fatless one,” meaning that you didn’t have a class, Warrior, Mage, or Rogue. You’ll eventually get to pick your class, but in the meantime you’ll be hunting down the one who brought you back to life. And that was about as far as I got with this game. So I have no idea what actually happens because you know I never finished it.

Like I said this was one of those rare RPG’s that I basically started day one from when it was released for PS+, but just wasn’t able to get into it. It was just like Dragon Age: Origins, but this game just wasn’t for me. Could it have been that unlike Dragon Age: Origins I never gave it a second chance? Probably, but I thought that the story was super slow for this game and there was a bunch of other shit going on at the time too. It’s hard to play a proper RPG when you can’t devote 5 or more hours a day to it. Playing an hour a day for an RPG just doesn’t cut it. With a still newish job, I found myself gaming a lot less and working a lot more. This kind of put a damper on the game as I really had no time to play and I just eventually ended up giving up.

As you can see from the picture above, I was able to get a sad 17 out of a base 51 trophies, 62 trophies if you count the DLC. The trophies that I got were pretty random ones an I only completed one main story mission, the rest were from just wandering around and doing random things. There are still a bunch of trophies to get for this game, one including beating the game on hard. Not my best when it comes to RPG’s, but also not my worst when it comes to unfinished games.

Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.

So I really have no interest in playing this game again. I know I should probably go back and give it another try just for the hell of it, but as my backlog of games grows, games like this basically get thrown away because I never find the chance to go back and play them or don’t have the time to go back and play them. Anyway, this feels like it’s going to be one of those games, which sucks because I would have really liked to give this game another chance.

Now it’s your turn, did you love this game? Hate it? Think it was one of the most underrated RPG’s? Let me know down in the comments section below. For next week, a game that was another free PS+ game. Because of my lack of time during this period of my life I was really disgusted that I didn’t have time to game so instead played small games between working. Some of them I finished and some of them I didn’t. This next game I didn’t finish and I’ll let you know why I never finished Choplifter HD next week.
