I, like many, stumbled across the original back in the day. I didn’t quite feel Skyrim, so I traded it and got this instead.
Fell in love with it back then, and even since I have gone back to revisit it, but being spoiled by next gen graphics I found it difficult to go back to.
With Re-Reckoning, THQ have pretty much taken the original and jazzed up the visuals and frame rates. Sure, it still has loading screens all over the place but the game is still just as fun as it ever was.
Difficulty looks to have been improved too, I recall being indestructible on the original, but I have found myself getting wiped here and there in this new version.
The world is great, the quests are many and the gear is cool. Story is good too, but you do get caught up on the hundreds of side quests that pop up, which I don’t mind.
Anyway, worth a look if you’re looking to sink 100+ hours into an action RPG
