Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

A sweeping story captivates players from the start! An epic story in an authentic world hand-crafted with an eye for detail and populated by "real", plausible characters. The heavy tremors on the island bode ill for its inhabitants. Ancient temples have risen from the ground recently bizarre creatures are terrorizing the area. Fear and terror is spreading among the population. A group of powerful men who call themselves "The Inquisitors" have taken it upon them-selves to put an end to these events. They send an exhibition to this remote island, but a storm takes hold of the ship and destroys it at sea. A Hero Will Come As if by a miracle, the player survives the shipwreck and is stranded on the volcanic island alone. He finds himself amidst a chaos of rebellion, tyranny and mystic rituals. He must now decide to which side the pendulum of fate will swing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do not overlook this game. April 8, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Risen has got to be one of the best rpg's to hit the 360 this year. The graphics are not the best for the 360 and the voice acting isn't much better, but this game is addicting to play. There are plenty of side missions along with the main story line to keep you busy for hours. When killing enemies you can search them to take some of the animal meat and before you can eat it you need a frying pan and a fire to cook it, you can pick plants and mushrooms to combine and mix into stronger potions, you can learn to be a blacksmith so you can make your own equipment, or learn to be a thief and pickpocket people while you talk to them and if you are caught stealing you get beaten buy the gaurds and whoever you stole from and they stay mad at you until you use a joke spell or joke scroll to make them like you again. From what I've played so far it seems like it is a massive openworld adventure with some oblivion elements but not a copycat ripoff. When you level up I think it picks your upgrades automatically unless there is a way to do it manually that I haven't figured out yet. Some downfalls in the game is the controls take alittle time getting used to, when doing missions you actually have to figure out where you got to go since mission markers don't appear on the map which isn't a big deal once you get used to it, that just means more looking around. Besides the fact that you need a frying pan to cook, you can also get a broom so you can sweep floors, you can get a saw so you can cut trees, you can get a pick axe so you can mine for minerals, I'm sure there is more to do I just haven't made it that far yet. In my opinion this game does what the first fable tried to promise, A massive open world adventure where your choices actaully change the outcome of the game, plant's grow back over time. Get this game, you wont regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game! January 15, 2011
By Dimich
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I believe that this game has been largely under-appreciated because many people got lost and confused in the beginning of the game. I'll admit, I was one of them - when I started playing Risen, I felt that there was a great game hidden there, but I couldn't get through to it because I wasn't sure what to do. I literally just explored the island fighting animals and monsters, enjoying it and thinking, "well, I guess that would be the game for me." It was only at the replay when I discovered the "door" into other three chapters of the game and how great it was.

Game-wise, Risen has reminded me of the Two Worlds - same as there, you have a large "free-roaming" world to explore with the main quest and side missions that you get after talking to people. In Risen you are a traveler stranded on the island and, to get off it, you have to understand what is going on there. Through the game you learn to use various weapons of your choice, certain level of magic, ability to mine gold, make swords, open locks, cook, or steal. All of these allow you to either progress in the game or complete certain missions. Risen is an RPG where you receive experience points, which give you learning points, which in turn allow you to use them to learn certain skills or get strength points from various teachers.

In overall, the environment feels very realistic and beautiful. Day turns to night, sunny weather turns into rain or a thunderstorm, the sun and the moon rise and set, and the clouds realistically move across the sky. There are forests, lakes, rivers, swamps, mountains, caves - in overall, anything you want if you like to explore the "open-world" games.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Welcome Home to Gothic Fans November 29, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Risen was made by Pirahna Bytes, the same scrappy outfit that put together the first Gothic games, and this is basically Gothic with just a different name. Like the earlier games, Risen takes a little time to get into, but once you do the rewards are great. One of the best parts of Gothic and Gothic II was that exploring and being clever are incentivized and rewarded. In many games, like Oblivion, so much is tied to your level that really you have no incentive to do anything other than level up and hope for the best. Risen takes this away by scattering the world with treasure chests, rare loot, combinable alchemy items, and a wide array of NPCs that can give you quests, treasure, and experience rewards. What this means is that there are many ways to develop your character; you can ignore the plots/quests and wander off into the woods, or hole up in the towns and run errands or engage in palace intrigues to get experience and levels.

Indeed, like the Gothic games, Risen starts off as a struggle. You will have poor equipment, terrible fighting skills, few resources, and no idea what is going on. A single boar or wolf can kill you, and god help you if you wander off the main roads into a cemetery or swamp. Many people find this challenging learning curve and free form environment frustrating, because you die a lot and do quests "wrong" or "out of order." Who cares? Gradually, so slowly you may not notice it at first, you get stronger. By spending precious learning points (earned 10 every level) with NPC trainers, you can increase your combat skills, unlocking new moves and faster ranged attacks. Spending points on blacksmithing will let you craft sharper swords, reforge pieces of magical weapons you find in the ruins, or even create protective magical jewelry to defend yourself.

This really should be called Gothic 3. It was made by the folks who brought us the first 2 Gothic games. It has a rich story and plenty of freedom to do what you want. Read more
