So the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning demo is out today. What did everyone think?
Some quick impressions:
-The art style and music both remind me a lot of World of Warcraft. Lots of color accompanied by sweeping, epic pieces.
-The dialogue wheel from Mass Effect is in the game, but the points on the wheel aren't characterized by a "tone." There are persuasion options dictated by a speech skill, which I imagine will become more important later in the game.
-It took me a minute to get acclimated to the controls, but once I did, the combat was very impressive. Everything works the way you would expect, even without a direct tutorial. It's smooth and flows nicely.
