A Solidly Okay Game

Shane H., Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Maybe 3.5 stars. So I finished this game...finally. I enjoyed it more than the first which I never finished. It seemed like it had everything there for a good game but it was just boring after a while. I played on easy since I read that was a better option to enjoy the game with less frustration. I won't cover combat, it is what it is. Simple and shallow like everything else in the game. +Some character development.

Good god, this game sucks

Jeff C., Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Look, I've played some mediocre games in my day. And if a game has some redeeming qualities, I'm not above hacking my way through the unpolished parts to get to them. Two Worlds II, for example, was a little rough around the edges. But I enjoyed it nonetheless, and spent upwards of 40 hours fighting my way through to the end. Risen 2 takes the term "unpolished" to a whole new level. To the point where I'm only an hour in, and I'm ready to throw in the towel.

Flawed but still lots of fun

Midway 47, Amazon

  • Summary: This is not a game worthy of perfect scores but I probably should have gave it 5 stars on here because that stands for 'I love it' and I do. I just didn't want to be misleading and make people think that it was up there with other action RPGs like Fallout or Dragon Age 2, which do deserve near perfect scores. Despite the lack of perfection, it is still a really fun game. All of the key action RPG elements that I enjoy are there.

Much better game then the reviews say!

PG "2 Many PS3 game...Too little time", Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: Loved this game! How much you say? Well I played it all the way through twice and had to grind about 4 hrs extra just to get the last trophy for the platinum(dumb trophy by the way) The game is quite humorous and fun and can easily take 40-50hrs on the first playthrough. My only complaint is the combat which was much better in the first game. Why did they take away block? Who knows? Play it on easy and it is a blast.

Feels unfinished.

Matthew T. Green, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Risen 2 feels like it was sent out the door before it was completed. The in-game map has few details, the on screen compass is almost useless. You'll just learn the routes by memory long before you use it as any kind of direction finder. The NPCs look bland, like a high end PS2 game or something on PC 15 years ago. Their animations during dialogue scenes are repetitive. Every female characters all have the same action, one hand on hip, the other waving aside.

It's alright

Clint J Hirschauer, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: A little choppy at times, but playable. My significant other isn't happy that she has to play as a male character. Overall, it doesn't "wow" us, but we aren't disappointed.
