Risen 2: Dark Waters Review

PlayDevil
10 September 2012
  • Summary: " Risen 2: Dark Waters " has a funny plot, but again is plagues by technical issues. The menu system is one of the worst I’ve ever seen on a console RPG. The lack of decent mapping and pathing is unacceptable in the modern era, and the dodgy animation is also not great.

Risen 2: Dark Waters

Total Xbox
10 August 2012
  • Excerpt: With so few pirate games around — and classics like Sid Meier’s Pirates! and the Monkey Island series showing what the genre’s capable of — it’s easy to get excited at the thought of a full-on pirate-themed RPG. Even one as flawed as Risen 2: Dark Waters .
  • Pros: + A sprawling pirate adventure with plenty of depth.
  • Cons: - Unclear objectives and headache-inducing map will frustrate many newcomers., ? Piranha Bytes definitely has design chops, but can they harness their ambition and build a polished product?

  • Conclusion: Whether it's the ropey and repetitive combat system, the linear nature of the seafaring, the peg-legged presentation, the senseless scaling down of the game world or the bloody loading times, this is yet another port that treats the Xbox like a poor man's PC - and both the 360 and Risen 2 deserve...

  • Excerpt: Pirates, monsters…and wenches! by Sam Warhurst ©2012 Sam Warhurst While I normally wouldn’t sit down to play a single player Role Playing Game (RPG), being more of a social gamer and playing online multiplayer games, Risen 2 certainly attracted me at first sight.

  • Conclusion: Not for the weak, impatient gamer, Risen 2 is certainly guaranteed to keep you busy for some time if you’re looking to invest with a new RPG. In the end, what more do you need to fill your spare time other than in a fantasy world filled with pirates, voodoo, monsters and wenches!

Risen 2: Dark Waters

  • Summary: Risen 2: Dark Waters is een grote actie-RPG welke de speler een grote mate van vrijheid geeft om te doen en laten wat hij of zij wil. De game heeft, net als elke andere game, zijn mankementen en kleine foutjes, maar over het algemeen is het een geslaagd avontuur dat je vele uren zoet kan houden.
  • Pros: Grote open wereld; zeven eilanden!, Diversiteit aan queesten, omgevingen, personages en vijanden., Je waant je echt op avontuur!, Vele uren gameplay.
  • Cons: De game dient even op gang te komen..., Vechtsysteem niet optimaal., Je kunt niet zwemmen., Soms te moeilijk, soms te makkelijk.
