Summary: On par with last-gen games. Poor gameplay mixed terribly with out-of-sync graphics leading to a boring and predictable game. I read reviews prior to the games release, however still made the purchase and was thoroughly disappointed. Wait until the price drops to $20 (or in Risen 2's case lower) and take a trip into the past with these pPS2-like graphics and PSone-like gameplay. Where is Crash Bandicoot?
