Risen 2: Dark Waters

Destructoid
16 September 2012
  • Summary: The original Risen was a curious little beast. In a genre so used to empowering the player, letting one live out heroic fantasies in a world full of treasure, choice, and magnificent deeds, Risen was quite prepared to strip you of your dignity, kick you around a bit, and spit you out a more humble,...

Risen 2: Dark Waters (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Risen 2: Dark Waters has convinced me that the pirate’s life is not for me. I am now certain that in a fight to the death, a ninja would easily beat a pirate, and that makes me sad.

  • Excerpt: Piranha Bytes has long been known for creating roleplaying games with an unparalleled focus on exploration, and now the studio has taken the concept to the high seas with Risen 2. Does this piratical escapade sink beneath the weight of its own ambition?

Risen 2: Dark Water Review

G4
24 April 2012
  • Summary: For RPG genre fans willing to overlook some technical flaws, Risen 2 may very well be a treat and a refreshing change of pace. For the rest of us, this is a game that will never quite rise to the occasion.
  • Pros: Refreshing take on the fantasy genre; there really isn't another game with quite the same world., Choice actually matters, and thinking outside the box is encouraged., No "go here" markers or mini-map make for a challenging, no hands-holding experience.
  • Cons: Graphics leave plenty to be desired. Even on highest settings, this feels like a game from 2007., Melee combat is too slow and heavy, like a hack'n'slash dungeon crawler.

Risen 2: Dark Waters review

  • Conclusion: There is very little positive to say about this game. The voice acting is passable and if you’re desperate to play a pirate themed game, you may get a kick out of the atmosphere.
  • Pros: Good atmosphere. Voice acting not terrible.
  • Cons: Virtually everything else. Hard to recommend.

  • Conclusion: Whether it's the elves and orcs battling in a medieval world, or marines shooting aliens in a futuristic universe, the RPG genre almost always follows the same rules. Fortunately, these rules work well and the paradigm is as solid as a rock.
  • Pros: + Long adventure + Intriguing Story + Great dialogue
  • Cons: - Combat frustrating - Slow progression

  • Excerpt: Victime d’un portage console décidé tardivement, le premier Risen avait laissé un goût amer. Fort heureusement, sa suite évite de tomber dans le même piège. Est-ce suffisant ? Wizarbox, en charge de la version console de Risen 2, a cette fois travaillé main dans la main avec Piranha Bytes, les...

“In potentie een geweldige RPG”

evilgamerz.nl
6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Risen 2: Dark Waters moet het succesvervolg worden op deel 1, welke relatief positief werd ontvangen. De game is inmiddels al enige tijd op de PC te bewonderen, iets wat opvallend is aangezien games de laatste tijd vaak eerder op de console verschijnen.
  • Pros: Tientallen uren aan quests, Prima RPG-elementen, In potentie een geweldige game
  • Cons: Te matig afgewerkt, Grafisch vrij matig, zelfde geldt voor de physics, Regelmatig vastlopers op de PS3 en haperen
