These two games together probably have 300 hours of gameplay easily (for an experienced RPG'er) Great story, fun....if a tad similar (bethesda te-he-he.) The engines are similar, but that's about it. I think i once saw a bioshock/oblivion bundle, similar to this. and lets just say if someone hasn't played these two games they are in for about 2 months of game play bliss. And if you add all the additional content on top of these games, well....see you when you look like a real wizard… Expand

It was small to begin with, which means the asking price is ridiculous. $9.99. Considering the price of the game, it's about as long as your average side mission in the main game. It does take place on another island but it is tiny and VERY linear with NO exploring to do. (other than 1 chest i think.) they have slapped two or three achievements on, there is no "Exceptional" loot either (as in swords, shirts, hats) The legendary item is nothing special unless you get it early on (Xp type boost) and overall just felt lacking. To ask this price for something which is pretty integral to the storyline (Patty's lineage etc) is a little silly in my opinion. overall a nice bit of story lining, no good questing or areas or loot, $10.

Average User Score: 5.6Apr 30, 2012Promising, is what has to be said about Risen 2.....but i should be saying that about Risen one in retrospect.
The game started well, havingPromising, is what has to be said about Risen 2.....but i should be saying that about Risen one in retrospect.
The game started well, having my own "base" is always nice and a little group of people to watch over always makes me feel involved. And the combat seemed like it was going to improve too, kicking over crabs to get to there bellies. And i was about to leave the starting island.
Then there was another island...and another, shortly i realised that the crabs were the only enemies which succumbed to this tactic....i tried it on alligators and bats and birds to no avail.
The combat quickly got repetitive and even though i was going down the thieving route, a good enough sword made fighting trivial. the final boss was literally a push over.
I won't get started on the animation, i resorted to not watching the screen while the charcters were talking. the lip synching was just far FAR too atrocious.
It felt like the game wanted to break at any second, from one moment where my character was on a pogo stick during a boss fight. and another where a quest had a break which resorted to some annoying work around tactics. It all together felt a bit rushed and just not Gothic 3, which is what we all want. but with this kind of story line (which was absolutely fine.)
Overall enjoyable. But last final criticism. is it was far too short, i expect a game like this to contain hours of skinning monsters and mining veins (of which there is just gold.) and searching for sword parts. In the end the side quests were quick. Fast travel was not neccesary on such small islands. and in 30 hours when the credits rolled i was dissapointed. not in awe.… Expand
