    Risen 2 is a good game. The name should have been changed, because it has nothing to do with Risen. The pirate theme was a very good choice and was executed decently, which in honesty sums up the game

    No doubt, Risen 2: Dark Waters has a lot of content in it. The world and setting are beautiful and you have many quests to complete. The problem is that these missions quickly become repetitive and boring. You can find various cool aspects but at long last Risen 2 is disappointing.

    The PlayStation version of the game not only fails to improve upon the problems of the original release, it adds several new technical problems. Texture delays, blurry graphics and sound issues combines with the horrid combat system to make this a frustrating experience. Risen 2 should be considered a "PC-only" game.

    Risen 2 gets worse when you lash that hideous combat to a graphics engine from five years ago, complete with a lurching framerate and sloppy interfaces. If you're charting a course for Risen 2 because you've heard the phrase 'pirate RPG' and figured nobody could screw that up, your hopes are about to swan-dive from the crow's nest to the poop deck.

    Quests do occasionally offer intriguing objectives, but they're a rarity, and simple kill/fetch structures are the norm. [Nov 2012, p.87]
