  • 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.

  • Conclusion: The odd thing is that Risen 2 is not a bad little pirate adventure. Even with all its peculiarities, I have to be honest, I did have fun along the way. Plenty of fun. The quest structure is solid and rarely feels repetitive or bored.
  • Pros: You get your own pirate ship (I like that), I enjoyed the treasure hunts, the quests, improving the character and exploring the islands, a lot of that is packed into a nice little pirate adventure, visuals are satisfactory;
  • Cons: Combat can still be as confusing and frustrating as in previous games, buggish, ultimately not much of a story, poor voice acting.

  • Excerpt: Serious pirate-themed games only come once every few years or so. Sometimes the gimmicks the theme brings are welcome additions, and other times games feel bogged down with half-baked swashbuckling gags and silliness.

As such, I sometimes yearn for the days of yore; when players had to search far and wide for their objectives, and random monsters would wipe...

PC GURU
3 November 2012
  • Excerpt: A Risen 2: Dark Waterst már sokszor bemutattuk a PC Guru hasábjain, sőt, két hónapja ki is próbálhattuk a játék preview verzióját. Akkor egy ígéretes RPG képe rajzolódott ki előttünk, és bár tény, hogy nem lett rossz a végeredmény, de a tengerészek bizonyára nem fognak róla legendákat regélni a...
  • Pros: A kalózos miliő és a humoros hangulat nagyon ott van a szeren.
  • Cons: Kihagyott ziccerek garmadája, gyenge harcrendszer, unalmas sztori.
