I played WoW since the beginning, with 3-4 accounts and 10-15 characters at max level. In each of the last three major upgrades, it was having to do so many of the same dailies over and over again that caused me to give up from the boredom. I like what I hear, but will wait until you say it is no longer required, vice almost so.
I found the movement and action combos clumsy and unnatural for a PC gamer. If I were an Xbox player, which I avoid, then maybe it would seem more useable. PC games should have mechanics like all the other PC games and not be a simple port of console movements. This was really a shame as I like questing and this appears to be very good in that category.
I tried the demo on the PC. Movement is awkward without a controller on the PC. It might be a bit better once I can play using my left handed mouse. Still, it seems the play would still be better on all systems with a controller. I can't wait to try it on a MOVE or KINECT!!
Overall, Reckoning was just what I expected - after reading the main players involved in getting it ready. This is a good thing. Great graphics, lots of "space", and pretty mind expanding abilities/talents possibilities. How Destinies played into those possibilities in the long run was not clear in the short demo.
Recommendation: If you like playing RPGs with a few extra degrees of freedom on your Xbox or PS3, then get it. Ditto if you have a game controller on your PC.
