    For every reason I play RPGs (big decisions, interesting characters, fun gameplay, immersive exploration), Risen 3 hits every sweet spot.

    Piranha Bytes is going back to its roots – including new cool factions like the Demonhunters and Guardians, both using powerful fantasy-spells. The game also offers a rich and detailed open world, mixing pirate- with medieval-setting where you can explore tons of rpg-content. Unfortunately the cinematic and technical presentation isn’t state of the art, including camera- and clipping-problems. Though the combat-system has improved since Risen 2, it still isn’t well balanced and polished.

    The Germans took a step back and reintroduced more of the distinctive atmosphere of the Gothic series and the first Risen, which is a huge advantage for me. The world is so vivid and lively that it really makes you want to be there and see as much of the vast content as possible. It’s a shame that the game’s engine is visibly aging and the story lacks the punch. [10/2014, p.48]

    Despite its oddball shortcomings, Risen 3 is a solid open-world RPG packed with entertaining characters and challenging combat scenarios.

    The main strength of Risen 3: Titan Lords is the big amount of things to do. Missions of any kind, treasure maps, crafting, factions, exploration of the islands, some naval engagement and more. But for those who have already played Risen 2: Dark Waters the impression of "copy-paste" is really strong and unfortunately its main flaws are still here.

    It’s almost a good game. For some of you that will be enough. It’s a neat little diversion and it’s fun in spurts, and maybe that’s all you are looking for. However, there are many other better RPGs to play out there with better stories, and better systems.

    Bloated in the mission department, threadbare everywhere else, Risen 3: Titan Lords is cobbled together from rehashed material, and the series' many flaws are enhanced a hundredfold in the process.

And given the factFinish the game and I can say one thing in front of me was a strong, good RPG, not a masterpiece but it is quite normal. And given the fact that the game was made with a minimum support (including financial), with a small team of developers at many of the shortcomings of the game, you can just close your eyes. But from my point of view Piranha Bites need cardinally changed, namely: a new publisher, which would put the development team for a lot of financial and material resources, an increase in staff development team and more.
    If the next game will be again in the spirit of Gothic or be like her, even indirectly - this game is waiting for failure. The truth is simple: play a new game Piranha Bites only because of their new game is made in the spirit of the Gothic style, just because they've made ​​the Gothic is not an argument.

There is a lot of that things that were the best in Risen and Gothic series. Combat system is dynamic and enjoyable. Game world has been made perfectly. You can decide where your hero will sail on a ship almost at game start. Story is very good and surprising. Risen 3 is one of the best RPG game of this year by me.
    You need to buy it!

    Игра не то что бы УГ, но очень близка к тому.
    +Единственный более-менее плюс - это красиво нарисованные пейзажи и освещение.
    +Атмосфера, да есть какая-никакая атмосфера, которая создана благодаря отличной работе левел-дизайнеров. Каладор - просто прелесть, как в миненталь попал, а уж присоединившись к демонхантерам, получается еще лучше, как будто охотник на драконов, во 2 готике.
    +Сиськи Петти, циничные и язвительные комментарии духа инквизитора Мендосы.
    Минусов полно.
    -Анимация - просто нет слов, театр деревянных буратин. Лицевая анимация - отсутствует, морды с деревянной мимикой, в mass effect 2007 года и то лучше.
    -Боевка - тоже УГ. Кликаешь мышкой, ставишь блок, если NPC начинает атаку из 3 ударов (а она у 90% NPC атака идет серией из 3 ударов), то будь ты хоть "Я-Мохаммед-круче-всех-Брюс-Ли", ты все равно не сможешь ее прервать и будешь выгребать. Но к середине игры тебе будет глубоко наплевать, т.к появится магия делающая тебя неуязвимым.
    -Кривой ИИ спутников, которые нужны только чтобы хоть как-то отвлечь врагов, но запросто могут застрять в камне или неторопливо пешком идти до моба, который месит тебя.
    -Ролевая система, nuff said. Квесты - убогие: сходи убей, пойди-принеси, собери n фиговин и сдай квестодателю... просто шик. Сложные квесты с интересным сюжетом, моральным выбором, эффектными кат-сценами... нет, не слышали.
    -Морские битвы - это полное говно, такое впечатление, что кто-то из пираний поиграл в Assasins Creed 3 и решили запилить морские бои, как там. Только получилось настолько убого, что хоть святых выноси. (Сцены абордажа корабля пирата-Моргана и инквизитора-Себастьяно - копии друг друга, почти абсолютные, именины только модели с пиратских, на инквизиторские.)
    -Из кремниевого пистолета и арбалета можно стрелять, аки из современной Бретты, вообще без перезарядки, ну и мазать в упор, просто шик.
    -Ни эпика, ни пафоса, ничего.
    Вобщем вывод печальный на метакритике userscore совершенно справедлив, игра на 5 из 10.
    Складывается такое впечатление, что парни из Pyrania Bytes за то время, что выпустили в 2005 году аддон "Ночь ворона" к Готике 2, не включали телевизор, не смотрели ютуб, не читали статей, не играли в другие RPG. И если 1 Risen им более менее удался т.к они во многом просто сваяли Готику 2 на новом движке и с новой легендой, а на волне разочарования готик-фанов от 3 и 4 частей серии это стало некоей отдушиной, да и в целом для 2009 года было еще неплохо.
    То в 2014 году выпускать подобный проект, да еще 800 рублей за него простить. Это нонсенс, тут ничего нет, ни квестов, ни сторилайна, ни отличных персонажей, и разумной боевки ( в готике 2 и Risen 1 было и ту лучше)... ничего. Пиратский сеттинг - уныл, после Assasins Creed 3 морские бои тут - без крови из глаз не взглянешь (AC Black Flag не беру в расчет т.к он говно).
    Вобщем я кое-как прошел ее до конца, но я рад, что не заплатил за это. И не дай бог, если разработка окупится, тогда нам в 2016 году представят снова эту же игру.
    З.Ы было бы лучше, если бы они в месте с JoWood Ремастеринг Готики 1 и 2 сделали на движке Risen 3. Было бы куда как лучше.

Anyone that gives it anything above 6 is either a loyal fan/supporter or a person who hasn't played a single good RPG in their life. Being a fan is not a crime but it removes your objectivity which is what a reviewer should be all about.

    The combat has almost the same issues as Risen 2: Your attacks can be interrupted by enemies,enemies attacks are almost always faster than yours which makes it almost impossible to hit. Dodging is nothing more but a game of hit and run which will most likely provide you with a win but also extend the battle with a single mob to 2-6 mins per mob which is spend in running around like hedless chicken. Guns and rifles seem to miss way too often and especially at the beginning of the game to hit like a wet noodle.
    Overall the combat system is really really bad if i had to give it a score i would go with: 1

    Voice acting is equally horrible. The voice actors sound bored and uninterested with their lines there is nothing to actually grab you or hold your attention to whats happening. There is no tone of emergency or emotions for that matter which turns the whole experience like listening to your neighbors talking about how bad the weather was today.
    Voice acting: 2

    The story is really bad as well not only that but thanks to the bad active it just feels underwhelming and uninteresting. No immersion what so ever
    Score: 2

    Graphics 4: Although i encountered some issues with the graphic overall its probably one of the (if not the) best features of the game. And that is considering that they aren't anything special or great
    Score:4

    Sounds: Nothing impressive or unique here but i guess at the same time they aren't so bad as well i had a few issue here and there but it was mainly minor stuff which i am more than ok neglecting since almost all games have some minor issues especially at lunch.
    Score 4

    Quiet a few of the areas were copy paste from Risen 2. In general i am ok with developers reusing areas which they had in their franchise if they show that they've actually put some effort into doing so but in many places you can see that they simply did a good old copy/paste just for the sake of giving u more to see/explorer.
    Showing that level of 'creativity' is working against the overall score of the game noone likes this type of practices and i don't think people should be paying twice for the same content under any circumstances,

    Overall the game experience is crap i don't think its worth anything close to 50$(or 60$ with dlcs) and those of you who are willing to give the game a shot should wait for a heavy discount before touching it. I am certain that some of the issues will be adressed however just like Risen 2 the majority of the stuff (voice acting,combat system) will not be changed in any way. Overall i would recommend that people stay away from the game if you are an RPG fan who is looking for something fresh this is not the place to find it.
