Amalur is a great game, and fantastic value for money. I literally spent dozens of hours simply exploring and taking on various side-quests, outside of the main storyline. The combat is varied and solid, requiring a rewarding mix of blocking and timing your attacks. Unlike Skyrim, it doesn't ever feel like you are flailing in mid air (but Skyrim is also a fantastic gaming experience). The graphics are beautiful, the world diverse and interesting, and the many characters that you meet along the way have great voice acting. Well worth it, especially at this price.
