Risen

Nicoma C. Rounds, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: The first game is much more interesting. This one just doesn't bring the same feel to it that the first game did. That being said it's a fairly solid title. Worth picking up if you see it on sale for cheap.

Good Game, But Piranha 'Bytes' More Than They Can Chew

H. Le, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: As a long time Gamer who still hail Gothic 1 and 2 as two of the very best Action RPGs ever made, and who was happy to see PB (Piranha Bytes) took wings and rose once again from the Gothic 3 ashes with Risen 1, I really look forward to Risen 2.

Combat made me uninstall

  • Summary: Ok, so when I sit down to play a Pirahna Byte (PB) game (which I've been doing since Gothic), there are certain things I know to expect and not to expect. I expect a good story, engaging characters, lush, vibrant, cheesy, outdated graphics, caves everywhere, and lots of character/class choices with...

Meh, Its an alright game at best

Gabriel Monroe, Amazon
30 April 2012
  • Summary: This game was decent at best. The character and model animations were clunky and outdated, and the combat system was mediocre at best. Playing through the story felt more like a chore than anything else. Other than that, I really liked the game.

Interminable wait on Steam

  • Summary: Having bought the special edition of Risen 2 Dark Waters, with a few special 'goodies', Although I knew I had to activate it via Steam, I did not expect to have to download my extras also via Steam.

Compelling story and fun to play

jacksongu..., Ciao
11 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Risen II is one of the games you play won't regret. It has a compelling story and continues right after the end of Risen I. You play the nameless hero from part 1 after his adventures on the island Faranga. Together with Petty (from part 1) you have to fight against a female titan lord called Mara.
  • Pros: Graphics, Storyline, a must have for gothic enthusiasts
  • Cons: new menues, picklock cannot break, instant recover from potion use

I cannot belive it

Marduk, Amazon
4 May 2012
  • Summary: Piranha Bytes - developers who created my favourite RPG games (Gothic 1, Gothic 2 with DLC and Gothic 3). I was so hyped up for this game that I just simply ignored all the reviewers who simply said that this game is barley an average one. Yet they were right.

RISEN 2 nur mit STEAM - Vorsicht!!!!

Johannes Kühne "Depress", Amazon
26 April 2015
  • Summary: Das Spiel selbst gefällt mir. ABER! Um es spielen zu können, muß es nach dem Start der Installations-CD aus dem Internet herunter geladen werden. UND! MAN KOMMT NICHT UMHIN STEAM AUF DEM RECHNER ZU INSTALLIEREN. DAS FÄLLT BEI MIR UNTER DEN BEGRIFF NÖTIGUNG: DESHALB GIBTS AUCH NUR DREI STERNE.

Hätte noch Potential nach oben gehabt...

Marcel Völker "MarV", Amazon
26 February 2015
  • Summary: Nach dem durchaus gelungenen Risen 1 war ich voller Vorfreude auf den Nachfolger. Hatte ich doch schon Gothic 1,2,3 gespielt und war froh, dass PB nach dem verhunzten Gothic 3 mit Risen wieder einem guten Kurs entgegensteuerte.
