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, withmultiple 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.

Storyline:
Many horrible years have passed since the Gods abandoned the world and the titans rose from the confines of their prisons. They devastated everything in their path with unstoppable force.

However, there is a place on the southern tip of the Old Empire which still seems safe from the clutches of the Titans - the "Crystal Fortress" in Caldera. It is the headquarters of the Inquisition and a place of refuge for the people. It is repeatedly attacked by sea monsters, and supply ships are sunk en route. Nobody knows how long the walls will hold; food and weapons are gradually running out.

The nameless hero, devastated by the developments on Faranga, now drowns his sorrows in rum in the harbour town Caldera. As the situation grows more and more dire due to the shortage of food, he sets out on a mission to put an end to the sea monsters once and for all.

  • Experience a totally unique, tropical fantasy setting in an open world complete with firearms, dirty tricks and a brand new magic style
  • Vastly improved graphics, brand new weather, water and light/shadow effects
  • Shape your own game experience and even the game world itself depending on your actions and choices. Every decision made has a consequence
  • Several unique islands, all lovingly designed by hand with no copy and paste set pieces

 One word... Disappointing!

| | See all BentleyBros's reviews (7)

I've been playing for well over an hour now and the game is beyond glitchy. The graphics are bad, the framerate is constantly chugging and the animation is terrible (just look at the main character sprint). The conversations look unfinished with characters and camera angles stuttering around like crazy. Sometimes the characters don't even say their lines. I also hate the way the developers dealt with the day to night cycle and the shadows. Instead of smoothly moving throughout the day, the shadows will just kinda jolt forward every now and then. You cant help but notice it and it looks really cheap. There's a lot more things to hate as well. Like when you fight a warthog and it makes the same sound over and over with each hit. Actually the combat in general is pretty poor and in no way satisfying. Just keep hitting X until something dies. Also, the voice acting is pretty terrible AND what is up with your character saying "I don't have gold enough" when he cant afford something. It's even subtitled correctly! "I don't have enough gold"!
It may seem like I'm being overly critical but I was hoping for a much better game. I assumed they would have learnt their lesson from the first console port of Risen, but it doesn't look like it at all. The only one redeeming thing about this game is the title music, which I think is awesome. I cant much comment on the story right now, but not even the best story on earth could save this game.

 So very close I had to give it 5 stars

I have to say whenever I get a new game of this style I'm always skeptical due to the conversion made from PC. This did not disappoint. The game takes around 40 hours to complete and felt just about the right amount of time. I only had one glitch in the whole game which is quite excellent for a game of this size and content.

As with all games of the Risen / Gothic series if you're not a hardcore RPG fan this will be too difficult for you and you'll end up with a broken controller or smashed TV. (or a critical review!)

Upon completion I felt good about playing the game, not felt that way for a couple of years after playing a game...

 Unpolished but a lot of fun!

If you played and enjoyed Risen you'll probably like Risen 2 as it's a worthy follow-up. It definitely has it's problems but if you can look past those flaws there's a gem of a game underneath and there are plenty of things to love about it.

PROS
Great world and setting
Funny dialogue and characters
Slow but rewarding character progression
Enjoyable and varied sidequests
Great lockpicking minigame
Well realised weopons (the muskets in particular are a lot of fun)

CONS
Very buggy (jittery animations, bad texture pop in, character and environment pass through)
Graphics are mediocre at best
Combat starts off quite dull but does improve (though not drastically)
Occasional, VERY bad framerate drops

Despite it's flaws I'm enjoying it more than many recent games and would definitely recommend Risen 2 to anyone who can look past a games flaws. If you're the type of person who likes very polished triple-a games, however, give this one a miss.

 risen 2 dark waters almost unplayable

i thought after the quality of the first risen game which i had loads of problems with this would be better.
the graphics are so poor i can't read any of the dialogue on the screen,
see the quest itinery properly,the map is just one blur you can,t see where your going. no other game has given me this amount of grief. it is deffinitley not worth the money.i think this game will probably go the same way as the first for trade in!
