Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Shows Smooth Moves At EA Conference

The hack n' slash combat of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning looked awesome on the big screen at EA's E3 2011 press conference.

Curt Schilling took the floor to shill (hurr) for his studio's inaugural effort, talking up the talent behind the game, which was to be expected. How smooth and varied the battle looked in motion was not.

The huge number of magical and martial skills on display in a cut-together trailer showing a bunch of different combat situations was impressive. If Reckoning plays as well as it looks like it has the potential to, I could have to eat a little crow. That's a sacrifice I'd be ecstatic to make.
