Risen 2: Dark Waters

True achievements
10 May 2014
  • Conclusion: The gameplay is tedious at best, and the story is solidly mediocre. It's not really worth playing unless you're desperate to continue the Risen saga, and even then, it might be better to pretend this one doesn't exist. My Rating: 3/10 - bad.

  • Excerpt: Risen 2: Dark Waters is a disappointment. Trust me, you have no idea how hard it is to type that sentence. You see, since I first discovered Gothic some ten years ago, I’ve been enthralled by everything developer Piranha Bytes makes.

  • Excerpt: Why aren't there more RPGs about pirates? This is a serious question. Where the heck are they? Apart from the JRPG obsession with all things sky piratey, and the occasional free to play MMO, pirates are relegated to being either miscellaneous enemies or perhaps a class role in a fantasy dungeon...

Softpedia
19 May 2012
  • Conclusion: There are players who will certainly love Risen 2 – Dark Waters, but I suspect that, even if everyone who gets this game manages to complete it and only then express an opinion, there will always be more gamers who might be disappointed and a little angry with the Piranha Games experience.
  • Pros: + Pirate theme, + Some clever conversations
  • Cons: - Combat system, - Most conversations

Risen 2: Dark Waters review

GameZone
10 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Risen 2 , despite its attempt to bring the pirate world to gamers, is a game that has a lot of potential on paper. However, its boring and unfulfilling combat combined with a poor leveling system leaves you wondering whether the game is even worth it.
