Summary: Boring game, the combat is very bad, the quests are boring and the story is very bad, the game sucks, this was a very bad game in my opinion and im not the only one who thinks that, my friends too
Summary: What can I say, I like this game. I liked the first game, and I do feel that Dark Waters is a good sequel, if not somewhat clunky. The bad stuff: absence of a level system (this is a personal thing and won't affect my score) the contrast and brightness seem irreparably off color. Overtly stiff Movement control, and generally lack luster overall compared to the PC version. The good stuff: This game does not hold your hand!
Summary: Risen 2 is a game which in todays market would be considered graphically obsolete. Also can be a little buggy sometimes. On top of that the camera orientation during fighting scenes was outrageous at times and difficult to control. Outwith all of the above if you are able to forgive these flaws you will find a gem of a game. Storyline and characters are great you will find yourself immersed in your own little world playing this game.
Summary: Implement the dodge mechanic you brought to the pc version, fix the stun-lock that a number of enemies can keep you in when in groups, implement a longer cool down for enemy's ranged attacks and you will truly have a stellar game, easily deserving of a solid score. A fair bit of balancing would improve this game to an amazing extent. As it is, however, it's more or less just wasted potential. There is a true quality game here, and it's easy to see.
Summary: Risen 2 is a good game. The name should have been changed, because it has nothing to do with Risen. The pirate theme was a very good choice and was executed decently, which in honesty sums up the game
Summary: I really, really like this game. The graphics are much better than the first Risen, the story's more interesting, the pirate theme is nice, the environments are great to explore, etc. However, it has one big drawback, which is the combat, and sometimes the difficulty will make you want to pull your hair out. So let's go a little more in-depth on Risen 2.
Summary: Yes, I will defend Risen 2: Dark Waters. I really don't care about the negative covering about this game. I'm almost 30 hours in an I simply can't put it down. But I won't sugarcoat it. Risen 2 suffers from several bugs, glitches and very poor graphics that - occasionally - makes it look like a PS2 game.
