4.0 out of 5 stars What Gothic 3 Should Have Been October 2, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll admit it, I expected this game to be a bust. After the travesty that was Gothic 3, I had little hope for any product Piranha Bytes put out. But I was dead wrong. This game is vastly superior to Gothic 3, and is comparable to the original two Gothic games, which is just about the highest praise that it could be given. It is a shame that Piranha Bytes did such a horrendous job with Gothic 3 and lost the right to the Gothic franchise to Jowood (their publisher), but it seems that the kick in the pants put them back on the right track.

Just to set the record straight, this game is nothing but a shameless rip-off of the previous Gothic games. And I mean shameless. The world looks exactly the same, the enemies are all the same, the towns look the same, the atmosphere is the same, etc. The scavengers are back as "sea vultures," the goblins are back as gnomes, the bloodflies are back as "grave moths," the boars are back, the pickable plants are all back, the dock in town was lifted right out of Gothic 2, the chapter system is in place again, etc. There are three camps once again, and they are the same three camps; the rogues who live in a swamp, the town who works for the Order, and the monastery. The Risen title is in the same distinctive font as the previous Gothic titles. There's even an abandoned lighthouse manned by a fellow named Jack again, for goodness' sake! Either the developers are completely out of ideas and recycled everything from their previous games or (as I think more likely) this was originally meant to be a sequel to the Gothic series, but when they lost the rights they just changed the names around. I can't stress enough how similar this is to Gothic, which in my mind is a very good thing, as I rank Gothic 1 and 2 among the greatest games ever created.

5.0 out of 5 stars Role-playing game that gets the important things right October 7, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game's world--settlements, forests, swamps, caves, and ruins--gets right everything that the "Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion", "Fallout 3", "Knights of the Old Republic", "Fable", "Mass Effect", "Neverwinter Nights" and so many other role-playing games in recent memory get wrong.

Every nook and cranny in "Risen" is uniquely designed and fun to explore, while still fitting into the larger shapes and patterns of the world. The entire game is a SINGLE three dimensional space to explore and conquer, there are no loading screens that transport you into separate "cave" or "dungeon" or "building interior" universes.

Every townsperson or monster or treasure chest or lockpick combination was created and placed to test your skill, not to waste your time. The complex interlinking of characters and quests require that the player pay attention and make choices with incomplete knowledge and only her own moral compass as a guide, not simply to choose "good, evil, neutral" responses by rote in order to dress up their character the way they want.

This was the sort of RPG I imagined a 3D engine would make possible back when I was playing "Quest for Glory" or "Baldur's Gate" and it has finally arrived. Do not miss it!

4.0 out of 5 stars 10 hours in the game and how is it? October 2, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are a fan of Gothic 2 this is pretty much a must buy. Others might want to grab the demo, which is now available to see if they like the gameplay. The only minimal disappointments are a somewhat smaller world to explore versus Gothic 2 and a more twitch-based melee combat than I personally would like. The graphics are pretty enough, but it will remind you of a game dating from pre Half-Life 2 generation of games. Character animations are a little wooden and some environment textures are more blurry than they really should be in this day and age. But I am being picky! It really is a god sent game for those of us who like "deep" crpg's and a fairly open world to explore. Just like Gothic 2, you will be asked to join a faction and at that point some quests are locked out until you replay the game and join a different faction. So far, it is easily a B+ game.

Folks who want games just like Oblivion or Fallout 3 should really download the demo since this game is hard: there's no baby-step leveling and super-easy combat here :) If you go up against a bigger creature while exploring, there is no auto-leveling, and you will die instantly. Kill a character before talking to him and you potentially lock yourself out of a quest forever. That's the type of rpg game this is and I wish there were games like this out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was alright October 31, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I just finished playing Risen and found it a little dry. It is a pretty strait forward rpg without many bells and whistles. Having just finished Fallout 3 and waiting for Dragon Age to come out i wanted something to fill the time in between, Risen looked like a good way to fill the gap and thats what it did. I dont think i even would have finished it if i had something else i wanted to play. I dont know, its like i kept playing hoping it would pick up a little bit, then it was over. I had alot of fun for about the first 10 hours then it was just more of the same old same. There just wasnt that much variety. The beastiary was kind of small, maybe like 20 different things to kill total. Like 3 helmets, maybe 5 suits of armor, but there was an ok selection of swords, axes and staves, 5 shields or so, same for rings and amulets. You can craft swords,rings,amulets and potions, theres cooking both over a fire and in a caldron, and you can make scrolls any of the classes can use, and you can prospect for ore. But none of the items needed to do any of these things are hard to find, and i ended up with a TON of extra stuff when the game ended. Ok, now for some of the good. The graphics are very good. Lighting and shading are excellent, and flow very well with the time of day and weather. The island does have a volcano and when under ground there is some shaking and rumbling that causes dust to fall from the ceiling. The combat is not too much hack and slash, you need to use your shield, if you have one, parry, dodge, combos and tho i didnt play a magic class, there is a good variety of magic scrolls anyone can use. There are bows and crossbows. You can sneak and pickpocket, and there is lockpicking wich is extremely usefull. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Still holds up
This game holds up if you enjoy a good action RPG with a different theme than most and is better than the second installment IMO.
