I've been playing this game and loving it. I am a bit confused if it is a single player game or a MMORPG but I really like it so far. I try to manually save when I finish a major fight or something but I've had instances where I've won the fight but ran out of healing potions and died shortly after only to respawn before the major fight. Sort of annoying. I didn't quite get what command brings up the healing wheel or whatever that has all my different healing potions.

The game was supposed to be a lead-in to an MMO, but the game didn't do as well as they hoped...and then the company went bankrupt.

 

The game has it's merits, but I didn't like it too much when I played the demo way back when. I much prefer a stricter class system, and KoA is a little too loose on that front for me.

 

Glad you're enjoying it though!

I think drinking healing potion is just pressing R, so you don't really need to worry about it.

 

Definitely single player.  It'll drone on a bit near the end but overall it's a good game.  Some DLC may be more to your liking than others, if you get far enough you can justify it.

I enjoy Kingdoms of Amalur. It's one of those games that didn't do that well but actually isn't half bad. The voice acting is a bit cheesy (especially if you've been playing Skyrim beforehand).
