Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Set several years after the end of Risen, raging titans have devastated the world and pushed humanity to the brink of existence. Subsequently, monstrous creatures have risen from the watery depths of the sea and their attacks have brought all seafaring to a grinding halt. The hero, now a member of the Inquisition, is sent out to find out how to stop the chaos caused by these creatures from the deep. His quest begins with rumors that the pirates who frequent the southern islands are the only ones who know a way to get rid of the creatures once and for all and end their reign of terror.

With an all-new pirate-based theme, Risen 2: Dark Waters aims to combine the most loved classic RPG gameplay mechanics of the original Risen with a fresh theme and setting on a huge variety of themed island locales. A third-person role-playing game set in a dark and gritty universe, Risen 2: Dark Waters maintains the most immersive features of the original Risen, with multiple approaches to every challenge allowing players to shape the game world based on their own decisions. These choices will serve to unlock new paths, features and additional skills for the character. Together with a highly interactive environment and a full day/night-cycle affecting countless aspects of the game world, Risen 2 will be set in the most immersive RPG game world so far.

Pre-order Bonus Content: Treasure Isle DLC pack

Embark on a brand new adventure in pursuit of the legendary treasure of Captain Steelbeard. Join Captain Steelbeard's daughter, Patty, on a journey to an unknown island that offers new environments to explore and many puzzles to solve, treasures to loot and mysteries to unravel. An all-new exclusive legendary item awaits those who have the courage to undertake this quest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better May 3, 2012
This is a game that is both fun and frustrating in equal measures. While it retains much of the enjoyability of previous Piranha Bytes games, the terrible combat, graphical issues, and lack of climbing and swimming really detract from the overall experience. Most reviews of the game thus far have labeled it a "mixed bag," which is very accurate. Let me briefly list a few of the major issues you should be aware of before you purchase this game.

First and foremost, it definitely feels like a Piranha Bytes game. If you've played Gothic I/II and/or Risen, the style and feel of gameplay is very similar. I count that to be an enormous mark in its favor. The combination of a relatively non-linear, explorable world and open-ended rpg elements that made previous Piranha Bytes games great is definitely there, but not quite to the extent it was in previous games. If you are anything like me, as soon as you start a Piranha Bytes game you go off exploring, climbing everything in sight and trying to get to hidden treasure. Unfortunately, one of the first things you will notice when you start the game is that you cannot climb or swim. This is a huge, huge step backwards. I know it seems like small matter, but climbing exploration was such a huge part of the game for me in previous Piranha Bytes games that the failure to include it is extremely disappointing and makes the world feel significantly smaller. The map might be as big as previous games, but the fact that you can only go on the flat parts instead of climbing all over the place means that in terms of actual explorable space it is functionally smaller. And yes, I realize that you can climb in some places, but only where it was scripted, and they are extremely few and far between.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Game, But Piranha Bytes More Than They Can Chew January 25, 2013
By H. Le
Verified Purchase
As a long time Gamer who still hail Gothic 1 and 2 as two of the very best Action RPGs ever made, and who was happy to see PB (Piranha Bytes) took wings and rose once again from the Gothic 3 ashes with Risen 1, I really look forward to Risen 2. However, I am somewhat dismayed to discover that, instead of keeping on rising, PB is sitting back down once again with Risen 2.

Although much better than Gothic 3, Risen 2 is rather a disappointment when compared to its predecessor Risen 1. Now let's be clear that R2 is not a bad game at all. In fact, I think it is a good game; it's just that it could have been so much better than what it is. But first, let's talk about the CONS:

- Combat: Nowhere as bad as Gothic 3, but still disappointing. PB was getting much closer to getting it right in R1's combat, but is slipping with R2. Whether playing with a controller or KB/M, melee combat feels more cumbersome than before. It is not easy to block animal attack, and the much dreaded 'stun-lock' issue from Gothic 3 rises again on some occasions - even after the combat-fix patches. PB really need to put this ugly issue to rest once and for all. In addition, some of the advance melee skills are not useful at all; that is, don't waste money to learn them; rolling out of the way and attack again is the most effective tactic of all. Also, enemies are not well balanced. Curiously, with the exception of one, bigger enemies actually hit much faster than small ones.

- DLC Rip-Off: Take what is definitely the shortest game in playing time and probably the smallest in playing area that PB has ever made, rip out one of the quests and call it the "Treasure Isle" DLC, and then sell it as a Day-1 DLC.

5.0 out of 5 stars A killer game all around. September 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
I loved Risen 2, and highly recommend it. I have played gothic 1, 2 and 3 (I skipped 4 since the guys at piranha bites didn't make it and I heard it sucked) and Risen 1, so I can say with good authority that Risen 2 is another great addition to the gothic universe, buy this and you won't be disappointed. So let me try and be more specific.

Gameplay: So the gameplay here is very similar to Risen, and all the other gothic games. You are the mysterious hero who sets out to right the wrongs of the world. You have a pretty open world (once you get your ship) and can roam to your heart's content. There are loads of treasure chests, herbs, monsters and all sorts of hidden goodies off the beaten path, which is the thing I love about this line of games. So have fun exploring, and make sure to make a note of all those high level treasure chests you find, so you can get them later. Combat is pretty much the same as the previous games and I didn't have any trouble with getting stunlocked, like some of the reviewers had (I am playing post patch for that so that might be the reason). There is a good variety of skills and different weapons to master, although I have to say I loved the musket...something satisfying about taking on a horde of spear wielding savages and ghouls and gunning them down before they can chuck those spears at you! Magic has been replaced with Voodoo which fits into the theme very well. I did not use the voodoo system, and stuck to swords, cunning and guns myself, but in the future I plan too. Your companions are handy and are a big help in combat (try out the goblin guy if you want a good can he swear like a....well pirate I guess LoL.) As far as the challenge goes I found myself very challenged for the first half of this game (save, and save often).
