4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, despite its flaws September 24, 2012
By Matt
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Like others, I read all the horrible reviews out there for Risen 2 and almost didn't give it a chance. Turns out though that I'm happy I did as I really enjoyed playing through this game from beginning to end, despite some of the game's more noticeable flaws.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect, but Still Fun and Unique September 11, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.
-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.

Bad:
-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.

Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
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. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better game then the reviews say! August 3, 2013
By PG
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Loved this game! How much you say? Well I played it all the way through twice and had to grind about 4 hrs extra just to get the last trophy for the platinum(dumb trophy by the way) The game is quite humorous and fun and can easily take 40-50hrs on the first playthrough. My only complaint is the combat which was much better in the first game. Why did they take away block? Who knows? Play it on easy and it is a blast. I know this game did not sell so well but I still hope that there may be a sequel someday for the next gen!

3.0 out of 5 stars Feels unfinished.
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. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright
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.
