I was just wondering what peoples thoughts are on this game. when it was first announced i was thinking it would be a good distraction until tes:v came out. now, even though i want to, i just really am not looking forward to it.
The game isn't due to february so It's more the other way around, with Skyrim being a god timesink till' then.
I'm personally looking forward to it because so far - EVERY SINGLE decision 38S/BHG have taken regarding this franchise makes me happy.
Reckoning is shaping up to become how I exactly want my SRPG to be like, the lore to the world is breathtaking and deep. The MMO is on it's way (will starting to be showned in 5 months or so)
This game isn't just a one-off thing from them. It's the start of a brand new franchise which I personally believe in.
It's both visually and fictionally high-fantasy so it adds a AAA high-fantasy RPG to the market (which is really needed)
Getting down to mechanics I mean - It's an open world game sprawling with quests,factions,stories, REAL bossbattles and events (not generated *** without VO).
A very deep and dynamic loot system aswell as meaningful and customizable crafting with sets and setbonuses, awesome looking items, unparalleled animation and combat in the RPG genre(one of the things they innovate on in the genre), full (high quality) voice over, graphically a breath of fresh air IMO.
The only things I dislike about the game is that the polygon count seems pretty low so it isn't as crisp as it should be on the console versions.
The face animations seem kinda outdated during cutscenes.
Overall it's my most anticipated game and tbh I haven't been this excited for a game for a couple of years. It's great to see a new franchise make it's way into a genre which is hard to penetrate (hurrdurr) where it has been far and long between good products.
