Risen 2: Dark Waters Review

411mania.com
11 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Risen 2: Dark Waters is the sequel to 2009's Risen, a series that was started due to a rights issue with the developer Piranha Bytes original series, Gothic. Another studio took over the development of Gothic 4 so Piranha Bytes worked on Risen. While the Gothic series is well-known for it's punishing gameplay and hardcore nature, the original Risen was sited as a fairly decent RPG with some broken gameplay but fundamentally good.

  • 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. At this point, I should say that even with all these drawbacks, I felt compelled to play on. Maybe it's because I always enjoyed Gothic games and because I really enjoyed the original Risen.
  • 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.

Expert Review

GameSpot
3 May 2012
  • Summary: Peg legs. Eye patches. Parrots. Rum. Think "pirate," and these images spring immediately to mind. Risen 2: Dark Waters features all these tropes and more, yet this pirate-themed role-playing game handles its inspiration with care. There are some grizzled pirates and ships flying the Jolly Roger to be sure, but Risen 2 never relies on the usual campy cliches to provide entertainment.
  • Pros: Array of quests that make you feel like a true adventurer, Voodoo and dirty tricks spice up battles, Great island atmosphere, Fun attitude that doesn't rely on tired pirate cliches
  • Cons: Frustrating combat scenarios, Some annoying bugs, Not as free-form as the original Risen

Risen 2: Dark Waters Review

  • 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.

Risen 2: Dark Waters (PC) Review

Canadian Online Gamers

  • Excerpt: Although I enjoy many genres, RPGs are often my poison of choice.  Remarkably, I actually learned how to read as a youngster thanks to Final Fantasy on NES. 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 out the hero without a second thought. Earlier this year, I had a chance to preview Risen 2. At the time, I praised the game nearly universally.

Test : Risen 2 : Dark Waters

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Oyez, oyez, matelots de tous horizons ! Il est grand temps de larguer les amarres et prendre le large. Amis flibustiers, nous mettons le cap vers les îles du sud pour de nouvelles aventures et autres chasses au trésor. Maintenant il faut juste trouver un nom à notre rafiot. Qu'est ce que vous dites de Montée 2 : Eaux Sombres ? Ça claque non ?
  • Pros: L'univers., L'humour., La durée de vie., Se prendre pour un pirate, ça n'a pas de prix.
  • Cons: Le système de lock., Placements de caméra parfois limites., Combats un peu fouillis dès qu'on affronte plus de trois ennemis., Pas de batailles navales.

  • 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 kikötői kantinokban.
  • Pros: A kalózos miliő és a humoros hangulat nagyon ott van a szeren.
  • Cons: Kihagyott ziccerek garmadája, gyenge harcrendszer, unalmas sztori.
