Seconded. I tried the demo the day it came out. I didnt even bother finishing it. I normally like some over the top combat (Just Cause 2, SR3) but KOAR bored me. Games in the first 15min should not be boring.
Except almost all games *are* boring in the first 15 minutes. It's called pacing and tutorials. A game as simple as Amalur in no way needs a tutorial, though.
