Pirate RPG for the Ages (or at least for a while.....)

  • Summary: I had a great time playing this game. Is it glitchy? Yes. Embarrassingly so. Is it cheesy? Arrr. It be cheesy matey. Nonetheless, it is also somewhat epic as an RPG and as a pirate game.

  • Summary: Skills and crafting was a little confusing ther first time around but by the second playthrough you have it done packed. Very replayable and i enjoyed it very much. Good action/Rpg for 20 bucks, decent sized world.

The best pirate game since Sid Meier's Pirates.

  • Summary: Leave it to Piranha Bytes to serve up a wholesome, open-world pirate-themed roleplaying game, the best in a long while -- one which, in practice, feels like a cross between Risen and Monkey Island 2. That's obviously a first, and it's great that they once again came up with something original.

Risen 2 (no longer broken for me -- edited)

  • Summary: I've been wanting a pirate based RPG and thought this would do the trick especially when I saw it was in the Deep Silver humble bundle. So great price along with several other games.

Risen: Dark Waters

  • Summary: Very enjoyable game. It started a little slow but got more fun as I became used to the controls, which were different from the previous Risen game. I look forward to the next adventure.

  • 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.

  • 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 was great until the very end

  • Summary: "Mixed reviews" aptly describes what most reviewers here and elsewhere on the internet think of Risen 2. Mostly I loved it. I bought Risen 2 after the first one or two patches, so most of the complaints in the first few days of May don't apply to the version I played.

  • Summary: If you enjoyed the first Xbox 360 port of Risen, there's no reason why you wouldn't like this game as well. Wizardbox have done a much better port this time, and while not perfect, it's certainly better than the first.
