Strangely addictive but still average at best

Samuel Ray "RPG Fan", Amazon

  • Summary: This game was brought to you by Piranha Bytes, makes of the Gothic series. Some of you out there will know what this review (and by extension, this game) will be like, but I will try to make a point. The gameplay and skills system is similar to the Gothic series, down to the nameless hero, method of leveling up abilities, and bizarre combat that will either allow you to cheese the enemies or die horribly.

Risen 2

Altecian, Amazon

  • Summary: Just started the game so I have just a few beginning things to say about the game. 1. The camera stinks on ice to use. 2. The game is fun and has a unique theme! 3. Things are kind of expensive at first but this can be improved as the game goes on. 4. The game can be quite the challenge so be prepared to die, meaning, save often :). I hope any of these help. I will update this if i can/remember when i am done with the game!

A Solidly Okay Game

Shane H., Amazon

  • 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.

Feels unfinished.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • 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

  • 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.

Not stellar, but hardly the worst time-waster I've played

  • Summary: I stayed away from Risen 2 for some time, due to early reviews. However, with the Christmas break upon me, I decided to give it a try in Gamefly. And as it turns out, if you dismiss the fanboys and the haters, you get a pretty accurate review of this game. It's not perfect, but it's hardly terrible, and at times, it's quite fun. THE GOOD: Gameplay (sans fighting): The exploration aspect of the game is a blast.

Not Perfect, but Still Fun and Unique

Maya Bach, Amazon

  • Summary: Good: -Unique Pirate theme and tropical settings including beautiful beaches, treacherous jungles, creepy caves and voodoo temples. -Surprisingly good music that does a great job creating ambiance. Going in caves genuinely scares me thanks to this (and the fact that I'm stubborn about not wanting to use up torches lol). -Lots of quests/exploring/collecting to do.

Super Spiel, aber nicht für PS3

Bobbymois, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: Ich war schon immer ein rießen Gothic Fan und Risen 1 fand ich super. Habe Teil 1 und 2 auf PC gezockt aber mir fehlt mittlerweile die Motivation auf PC weiter zu zocken wenn keine Erfolge dabei sind. Also habe ich mir Risen nochmal auf PS3 gekauft, leider gab es Risen 1 nicht auf der PS3. Grafisch ist das Spiel auf der PS3 echt mies, kann man aber drüber weg sehen wenn man nicht nur auf die Grafik achtet. Die FPS ist richtig schlimm.

Passables Spiel. PS3 Version jedoch Performanceprobleme.

Jürgen Wackerl, Amazon

  • Summary: Wer Fan des 1. Teils war muss nicht auch zwangsläufig ein Fan des 2. Teils sein da sich Spielmechanik doch recht stark unterscheiden vor allem was das Skillsystem angeht. Bei der PS3 Version gibt es häufig Bildrateneinbrüche was den Spielspaß etwas trübt. Wer aber klassische Rollenspiele mag und dem Piratensetting noch nicht müde ist kann es sich gern holen.
