I am playing the game right now and can tell you it is a lot of fun and to say the game is huge is an understatement. For reference I have only traveled past half the first continent in the game and have spent 20 hours doing nothing but side quests and blacksmithing. Kingdoms of Amalur is available now on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.
