Could someone enlight me? Whats so good about this game? I never EVER head about Kingdoms of Amalur *saga*? Thanks!

It has an okay combat system but that's really about it. It's extremely generic and suffered from the whole designed by committee thing. So many half baked elements in the game that just needed more polish, it felt like they were just ticking boxes off a checklist.

Edit: Oh and the bloom, good grief. I've never seen a game with such an overused bloom filter.

It's a console RPG designed exclusively for the 360 specifically. I honestly haven't had buyers remorse like this for a game since Brink. If you're bored with nothing else to play I'd suggest giving it a go...when it hits $5 on Steam. Pay anything more and you'll regret it.

Thanks. Guess its not worth it.

The worst bloom in history is in "Nail'd", I've posted a thred on steam forums for the issue.

Duke Nukem Forever had some bad bloom, but you could turn it off. I'm not sure why developers love this effect so much...where in reality does anything look like that? It makes the game look like a soap opera dream sequence.
