Top Customer Reviews
Every RPG has its own set of rules and game mechanics. For example The Witcher's gameplay is radically different from Skyrim which in turn is different from Mass Effect. This is fact, Risen (parts 1 and 2) is no exception, in the world of Risen you are presented with a sandbox world to explore and remember, much like you would your own neighborhood.
There are no magical beams of light to guide you from place to place; you must remember locals, paths, shortcuts, villages, towns and landmarks to get your bearings.
A vast majorities of quest will be giving to you via conversations you will have with the populace, pay attention to what they say, because buried in their conversation may be directions to how to get to where you are headed.
Risen 2 makes an improvement on the map department since Risen 1's map was cryptic matter to understand.
Speaking of maps, in the world of Risen you are given nothing. You must acquire everything you need. Food, tools, armor/gear, weapons and yes even maps.
This can be frustrating, especially early on in the game since you do not know where you are, you have no lay of the land and you can't make heads or tails of your location. However, this is part of the intrigue of the game. Finding your own way. Won't be long before you recognize a stretch of beach, a rotting stump and a turn of the road, perhaps a cave or a temple with untold treasures to loot.Read more ›
I'll start with the combat since that seems to be where the most complaints have come from, it is what it is, I don't think its terrible just very bare bones at first, when you start out all you can do is just mash x over and over and over again until the enemy is dead. You have no other skills until you start to visit trainers and unlock them. I've gotten a pistol and learned how to kick from a trainer last night so now I can throw a kick and gun shot into the mix. I honestly haven't found the combat to be all that difficult, i've had no problems with animals or creatures, stun locking me to death or anything, in fact the only enemies i've had give me a hard time have been a few of the trainers that have kicked my butt so I don't know if they have lowered the difficulty for the console version but i've had little trouble so far. Obviously I can see why a lot of people would not enjoy the combat as it seems that it will take a very long time to put together a good compliment of skills to make you feel like your doing more than just spamming X.
Graphics seem to range from mediocre with some really awkward character animations to really quite nice looking, I thought the first island you go to has a really nice look to it however in a few areas that seemed very graphics intensive the frame rate stutters a bit so I don't know if thats do to poor programing or just the 360 showing its age and struggling.Read more ›
Pick it up used, but don't spend full price.
- MUCH IMPROVED GRAPHICS
While the first game wasn't exactly hideous, per se, it certainly wasn't going to win any awards. This game, however, portrays its island jungle setting in a more convincing matter. Character models are greatly improved, as are weather effects. Some things will have you rolling your eyes at the lack of attention to detail, but way less than last time around. To top it off, the art direction (pirate themed EVERYTHING) makes for a more unique feel as opposed to the somewhat generic look of the last game.
- SOMEWHAT IMPROVED GAMEPLAY
The melee combat of the first game could be summarized as such: "Mash the attack button." This game has done away with some of the more redundant combat ideas and replaced them with simpler, easier to execute concepts that mean you'll be actually using them. The XP mechanic is also much simpler and effective, meaning that you'll actually get stronger in the ways you want to, making things easier on you. I mean, who wants to be a crappy swordsman just because you can't find a trainer? In Risen 2, that's a much smaller issue. In addition, getting hit in the back all the time will be less of a worry, as the game has added a much more fleshed out companion system, meaning you'll be dealing with things more effective as a duo, most of the time.
If you liked the first, you'll like this one, and if you didn't like the first, you might STILL like this one due to its improvements. If you can stomach the full asking price, maybe just rent it, or wait for it to come down on the price. I think it's worth playing, and I think you'll agree.
