Ten Years after Its Time

RPGamer
29 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Originally known for creating sloppy, difficult RPGs that gave the player full freedom in an open world, then deprived him of anything resembling a functional control scheme to interact with it, Piranha Bytes continues moving away from both the pros and cons of its heritage with Risen 3: Titan Lords . Although it is restrictive, small in size, and has a game world that doesn't change, Risen 3 is also easier, more refined, and more approachable than its predecessors.

  • Excerpt: There's a lot to do in Risen 3: Titan Lords but not a lot of reason to actually do most of them. There's a lot to unlock and explore, but you'll never feel like the journey is worth it.

Risen 3: Titan Lords (PC) Review

  • Summary: For as much as I liked Risen 2, I felt at odds with Risen 3. Functionally, they appear to be the same game, but Risen 3 just feels like it’s a sloppily made expansion, not a full-fledged sequel. There are some good elements to it, and if you really loved Risen 2, then this game offers more of that to you, but it didn’t feel as unique as Risen 2 ultimately did, and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

  • Conclusion: Despite still having a few issues Risen 3: Titan Lords is a vast improvement on Risen 2 . The combat could be better but doesn't cripple the game this time, the world is more interesting and easier to get around, and there's tons of stuff to do. The story's a bit too straightforward with not many surprises, Fast Travel is a bit of a pain when it's supposed to make things easier, a number of things could be explained better, character customisation is nil, and despite the...

Review: Risen 3 - Titan Lords (PC)

Diehard GameFAN
16 August 2014
  • Summary: Risen 3: Titan Lords is a game that, frankly, will not be the first thing that comes to mind when you talk about action adventures games. It had so much potential to be a really good game that could easily make people forget about the shortcomings of the first two in the franchise, but the developers dropped the ball.

  • Excerpt: For possibly the largest and most expansively open Piranha Bytes game to date, my review of Risen 3 is going to be short and sweet. Why? Because there just isn’t much to say about it besides “go buy it.” Yes, I’m a lifelong PB fan; my teens and early twenties were spent playing the Gothic games. Yes, I tell anyone who cares to listen how the original Risen is better than Skyrim (for the things I value in an RPG, anyway).

  • Conclusion: How much you will like Risen 3: Titan Lords will mostly depend upon how much you liked Risen 2 .  It has more freedom from the outset and you can travel to pretty much any island at any time.  It is a little bit more refined and less clunky.  It is a better game, but probably not by enough to move the needle for people who were deeply disappointed by Risen 2 .  To judge Risen 3 on its own merits, it is a pretty good game.

Risen 3: Titan Lords

IGN
12 August 2014
  • Conclusion: Risen 3 has elements that are enjoyable in short spurts; exploring islands, engaging in swordplay, and the brief moments of naval combat can be fun. All of that is undermined, however, by elements that make the campaign drag. The plot never ramps up, the characters barely change, and the choice to make most NPCs a shopkeep and/or teacher makes equipping and learning new skills a mess, all of which keep Risen 3 from - ahem - rising to modern RPG expectations.
  • Pros: Enjoyable swordplay, Good leveling system
  • Cons: Sloppy shops and skills, Dull story, Imbalanced boss battles

Risen 3: Titan Lords

Hooked Gamers

  • Conclusion: Piranha Bytes, realizing they have gone off the track with Risen 2 , have been adamant about returning to their roots with Risen 3 . It is no idle boast. Risen 3 is every bit as engaging as Risen 1 or the earlier Gothic games and follows their exact same formula of character progression, the appeasing and joining of factions and restoring peace to a troubled region.
