It doesn't surprise me that this game got panned by professional review sites as well as many modern gamers. The graphics are dated (at least on PS3 they are), there's texture tearing and pop-up, and some major drops in the frame rate when large enemies are on screen. Modern day videogame luxuries such as quest markers and frequent pop-up hints and instructions are absent. The learning curve is somewhat steep as you start out with very little guidance and your character is ill-equipped and weak, and it's not uncommon to get your butt kicked by even a measly sand devil (the goombas of the Risen 2 world), particularly if they outnumber you. Combat is clunky and your strategic options are initially very, very limited. I can admit that there were a few moments in the first 2-3 hours of playtime where I considered quitting because it seemed like a mess of a game.
But I stuck with it, and I'm glad I did. Despite its technical problems, I found that Risen 2 has a lot to offer than other games do not.
Foremost is the satisfaction that comes with playing a game that comes with so little of the modern handholding we've become accustomed to as gamers. There's no flowery 20 minute cinematic to kick off the game, followed by a 20 minute in-game tutorial that gradually introduces you to your move-set and onscreen HUD. You get a brief narration and then a short conversation and then you're in complete control of your character from then on. What you do at that point is up to you.Read more ›
Gameplay (sans fighting): The exploration aspect of the game is a blast. I've wanted to play a real pirate game for some time since being disappointed by Rogue Galaxy many years ago. This game almost does the trick. While there is a storyline about saving the world, the real fun is interacting with others, robbing graves, and in general, accumulating loot. The main plot isn't bad, but I find it implausible that pirates would worry so much about anything other than getting rich and getting women. And while the main character isn't a full pirate, it still strains belief.
But there are numerous islands to explore, numerous sites to find, numerous treasures to plunder, and (unfortunately) numerous enemies to fight. I wish it was easier to run from the enemies (more on that later), but I thoroughly enjoy the other aspects.
Dialogue: It's like the script was written by a well-versed 14-year-old. F words pepper the dialogue (there is one hilarious character, late in the game, that curses about every other word). And yet, I find the dialogue pretty good (much better than Two Worlds 2, whose dialogue didn't match the game in the least). I enjoy the voices for the most part, and given that you will be talking a LOT, that's a plus.
Graphics: I don't know why everyone beats up on the graphics. While they may not be the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, they are more than functional.Read more ›
-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.
-Interesting combat: I admit, the combat at first in this game seems super boring, but once you are able to buy a few skills (faster attacks, power attacks, etc) it really improves.
-Tons of skills to learn: ranging from sword and gun skills, to voodoo, to sending a trained monkey through a window to rob a house for you lol.
-The text is TINY, so unless you're right in front of your TV you will have a hard time reading it. For the console releases of this they really should have included an option to make it larger.
-Lots of pop-in textures.
-The in-game map isn't great because you can't zoom.
