Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning is a fantasy action RPG, action RPG sums the game up nicely, its played from a 3rd person perspective and plays like a typical action game. The multi-monitor support in this game is outright bad, makes me wonder why they even let you select multi-monitor resolutions from the options when it is unplayable in them natively. Luckily helifax has made a fix for it, unluckily the fix (at time of writing) doesn't fix the issue with the quest window, to fix that you have to run a resolutions lower then 4096. Link to the fix can be found below.

With regards to the video itself, personally I don't like it, I tried to do a while playing type of commentary rather then text annotations but I think it falls flat, regardless it'll help explain and show the issues and the fix. If your monitors width is larger than 1920 pixels and you have lots of bandwidth, set the quality to original and play the video in full screen for a much higher quality.

Copy paste of video description:

Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, Original resolution was 5040x1050 aspect ratio of (48:10). If you are running a resolution with a width higher then 1920 (30'' monitor or multi monitor) set quality to original and view in fullscreen.

Note 1: The fix shown in this video can be found here: http://widescreengamingforum.com/dr/kingdoms-amalur-reckoning/en
Note 2: The issue with the quest window only effects resolution widths above 4096.

This video shows 24 minutes and has a pretty bad attempt at commenting on the game while playing it.
