Become a pirate, and play a RPG like no other
Risen 2: Dark Waters, is a ARRRPG that is not for the casual gamer (and for some hardcore gamer).
First up I would like to comment on the so called "Broken Controls" that you will read about in other reviews, and tell you they are NOT broken. In fact I would say they are a nice change, compared to most button mashing RPG games out there. Rather then simply button mashing, you need to learn the best way to kill the enemy in question, then use this against them. If you die, you might need to level up your character, or use a different strategy. I would just like to make a point that, in a game if a combat system is hard, it doesn't mean its broken.
Next, I would like to discuss the graphics. This game is gorgeous! If you have a high end machine, this game will look amazing. Every location is hand crafted, and different.
The sound in this game is fantastic. Listening to the crickets during dusk, or thunderstorms on a rainy island.
Questing and player progression are fantastic.
Overall (so far) this game is a must!
