Summary: Nice game... I must say that being a mage wasn't that boring, having access to levitation/telekinesis/fireballz etc. I'd like to think this one being a good starting point for the next Gothic Also I happen to be one of those lucky guys that encountered only 1-2 bugs once or twice.
Summary: "It will take you about 1 hour of gameplay to figure out that Risen isn't just similar to Gothic - it IS Gothic." Especially the weed part and the flame oriented mages still good though brought back some nice memories of the first 2 parts of gothic
Summary: Should I pick up the first two Gothic games off gog.com instead of playing Risen? I tried the demo and I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of Two Worlds; a pretty crappy yet incredibly enjoyable RPG.
