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.
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.
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: "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.
