  • I hope this game just gets a sequel. Picked up the remaster and it doesn’t look very different. The game is still buggy and gets pretty stale after the 10 hour mark. It was a good game back in the day, but a lot of its features just now seem outdated.

  • "Not quite as complex as elder scrolls" Proceeds to completely ignore comparing combat, something Elder Scrolls sucks at.

  • The expansion Fatesworn isn’t being made from scratch by THQ Nordic either, it was the planned 3rd dlc by 38 Studios but they went bust before it was finished. THQ are just putting it together.

  • I’ve just finished the entire game and have to say it’s very poor “remaster”, they fixed none of the bugs and added in some new ones. Sometimes in conversations the characters are side by side rather than facing each other. There’s some weird pulsating textures around elf ears. Some outfits are missing textures. It’s still a great game and a lot of fun but all the credit goes to the original developers. THQ Nordic have been extremely lazy with this, deserved a full remake.

  • I'd love it if this was just THQ testing the waters with a property they acquired and it gets enough attention to actually get a sequel. I bought it in hopes that this is what they're doing. I remember borrowing this from a friend on... xbox 360, I wanna say... I didn't beat it, but the combat was a blast, and the lore was pretty cool. I'd like to see what a sequel would look like in today's ecosystem.

Yes it's not the best in graphics but it's a game and games are for fun like this one!!!...

  • They are marketing for a higher price than what I bought the original version. Really, a remake, more expensive than the original (which I bought last year). I'm sad about that. If they had changed the menus, offered new gameplay, improved the graphics (it is still really weak compared to 2018 games for example), I would definitely buy it, but, as it is? No, thanks

  • I do it for 40 bucks on the re-wrecking version you get the entire game all the expansions in any original DLC. I'm not sure what that means exactly I don't know how many DLCs or expansions are worth but even if it's just the original game plus one DLC that's worth 40 bucks

  • Dude I don't know how you can say it looks the same I mean I haven't really looked but from what I gather the file size is like four times more than four times bigger which tells me there has to be all kinds of new textures and and it's got to look different you should compare it side by side. my disappointment was in finding out it's only a single player game it sounds like a kick-ass title for an MMO or at least a co-op

  • I really enjoyed the game back in 2012, it was beautiful and ambitious with great combat and gameplay mechanics. The game was overly ambitious at the time and tried to do too much with too little money. I would've loved to pitch in for a more polished final product through a kickstarter project. But we are in 2020 after all, and this "re-master" is pretty sad. I'm not saying all re-masters should be like Resident Evil 2 or Final Fantasy 7, but the effort is clearly lacking and there's not much upgrades or improvements over the original. Opportunity wasted imo.

  • Any kind of combat playstyle in this game is just awesome. I was so hyped to see it re-released, then massively disappointed that nothing was done. A lot of annoying things with the game, but damn the combat is just freaking crazy good. A sequel would had probably been a hit.

  • This game did plenty of stuff right that Skyrim didn’t, magic is not made redundant, intriguing stories, bosses level up with player, playing certain combat builds actually mean something. Weapons and Armour where wide and diverse. Though it’s a shame that nothing has been added or changed in this new release.

  • I was so pissed from paying 60$ for this game. I was a huge fan of the original and own it on PC and PS3. When I heard when it's getting a remaster I was so happy and bought it the instant it was release on the PS store. The problem is that they didn't do anything to it, it looks so outdated, they didn't rework the graphics, didn't add features, didn't do anything to it except fix a few bugs. The game almost looks uglier than the original.

  • First version of this game was amazing. Happy to buy this remaster, especially with the loyalty discount. Would love to see more Amalur, only way that happens is to support companies that want to give us more, even if it is only a remaster. Hoping that the content in the addon breathes new life. Considering a lot of the shit games coming out these day, many of them in early access and no indication they will be finished, at least this one is finished and you can put a tonne of hours in just trying different class combinations.

  • Worst remaster of 2020

    Markus MitchellMarkus MitchellUukausi sitten
  • This game is just the same game with a new coat of ceramic wax. In fact, it’s buggier than the original game. I never encountered game breaking bugs, but in this one there’s several. Take the disappearing enemies who don’t give XP. The only work around is to go back and reboot areas. But when you’re 4/5ths if the way through the game that’s irritating. I’d recommend people wait for this game to be re patched. In its current state it’s a joke.

  • I just don't understand why I hear so many people say this game is outdated and is an example of how far we come. That is true in some regards but what newer game has outclassed it? Maybe I am missing it but I can't think of a single console 3rd person ARPG with randomized loot mechanics, lite RPG elements, and combat like KOA. Everyone just assumes there is something better, but what has replaced it?

  • Dude, seriously? If they paid you to make a 10 minute ad brown-nosing this game, then shame on all involved. You did nothing but give a synopsis of the games story and talked about the mechanics of the gameplay. For a Before You Buy, you didn't talk much, if at all, about what is different between this and the original. Don't waste your time making a video talking about the story and mechanics of an 8 year old game. Or at least come up with something better than "You get XP for killing monsters and doing quests."

  • I've been following Gameranx and using their reviews for a long time. Don't ask me why, but I checked out the IGN review for this game the other day as the first review to get a feel for the game. After the review, I came away not really all that interested. I then saw this Gameranx review and wanted to give it another chance. I paused the video halfway through to write this comment. After 5 minutes of this review, I'm absolutely buying this game. IGN has got to be one of the worst channels and sites for videogames. Unsubscribed for sure. I'm sorry I cheated on you Gameranx. Never again.
