Any role-playing game worth its salt is measured by the ability to convey conflict. Sitting behind the scenes of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a depth of combat controls and free customisation rarely seen in an action game, let alone an RPG. There are three combat styles to choose from: Sorcery, Finesse and Might. The more resources you pour into each skill tree, the more powerful you become.
Go deeper still to uncover Destiny cards. These unlock as you become more proficient in an individual field or choose to be the true all-rounder, picking up a little of each. Our personal favourite is blink, which transforms your rolling dodge manoeuvre into a feat of magic as you teleport through enemies in a flurry of butterflies to unleash a lethal attack.
The beauty of Amalur is that every time you level up, you're completely free to distribute the skill points you earn across any discipline you see fit and see a tangible outcome to the choices you make. No longer are your choices limited to a single class, now you can be the powerful mage who can blast enemies with flames just as easily as he can sneak up and assassinate hapless victims, or the mighty warrior with the ability to magically heal wounds sustained in the heat of a knife fight.
