If you've played a Piranha Bytes game (or any tier-2 RPG) before, then you know what to expect. And Risen 2 delivers.
RPG's seem to come in three flavors: 1) A+ titles that get gobs of development money and marketing (Skyrim, the Fallout games, Dragon Age, Mass effect, etc) 2) JRPG's 3) Almost-but-not-quite games that are fine ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
I'm only about ten hours in, but I think I've seen enough to say this is a really, really good, "old-school feel" RPG. It's hard in all the right ways, it doesn't hold your hand (you actually have to think about / figure... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Let's start off with a simple "I like this game". That's the best way to describe it - I simply like it. Gothic 4 is a role-playing game that suffers from "comparison-itis". No, this is not a deep RPG filled with cha... Read Full Review3 of 4 users found the following review helpful
This is a role-playing game through and through. That's the biggest thing you need to know about this game. You've likely already read about the graphics (not too bad, but not cutting edge), the AI (could have been be... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful

This game is hard to describe. Yes, it's hard. Yes, it's unforgiving in that there are no checkpoints and/or pause button. But you know, these aren't a big deal. Really, they aren't. There are other games where I got ... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Don't let the gamespot review sway you - this is a GREAT Co-op game. Here are the two problems I had w/ the gamespot review: 1) The reviewer must have been in the army (or had relatives in the army) to be so offen... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Fans of Thief and Thief 2 are in for a treat. In fact, any fan of a "true stealth" game will love this.
Velvet Assassin is all about stealth. You creep slowly, you stick to the shadows, you watch the guards, note their patterns, and pounce. Or maybe there are two guards... how do you get rid of one? Maybe a quick whistle t... Read Full Review17 of 18 users found the following review helpful
For me, this was exactly what I was looking for. A real time, small squad tactical game in the vein of Myth and Myth2.
I'm not a huge RTS fan - let's get that out of the way. Oh, I like the premise of an RTS - get an army, fight the other army. But the mechanics always left me cold. Resource gathering was a pain, too many buildings, t... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
