it's under-appreciated cuz there are always some whiny kids who want to play pretty games And I saw several comments complaint that this trailer doesnt show any gameplay. Seriously, If you want game play, go find a gameplay video. Grow up, stop whining, and ask your parents to stop spoiling you.
From what i've read and what i see this looks to be yet another under appreciated game. Hopefully I can get it on 360 soon and the porting isn't too sever. I'm actually looking forward to this Divinity II and Arcania. plus I saw some shots of staff combat and a training facility, sounds silly but that's what caught my attention hah!
Well it's piranha bytes isn't it? The company who never made a game without including a heap of game breaking bugs.
@ bildevo...you ever heard of gothic? how can you compare this to oblivion if you havent acctualy played it.
Epic game .. I am addicted to this masterpiece , the battle system may be tricky .. but it's just special not dumb like some morons say . The plot is thrilling and as a mate said Stand by for Arcania !!! PIRANHA BITES
i really don't understand why some idiots complain about battle mechanics , i find it preaty damn good especially vs humans , sure it gets a bit hard vs multiple targets but hey this ain't no bruce lee movie where everyone waits their turn to get a beating , the mobs here try to to around you ... The person that made the review here should learn how to play it first maybe .
this video basically shows nothing worth watching except some good cut-scene graphics! I wanna see gameplay....
think the game is something decent but not outstanding can't play it now payed for mmo online already for some month good job guys
@khornedeadra, for some crazy reason i liked two worlds, even though it froze all the time and had a horrible frame rate, i guess i really needed that fix after oblivion. i hope then this is 10x better
i just rented this game and let me tell you it really really sucks!! worst than two worlds!! i hate it almost as much as wolfenstien. giant waste of my life!!
I'm playing this game for a couple of days now, but I don't really know why... hoping it will get better I guess. But it's not. The game is mediocre at best, graphics being the best part of it, and they are not that flashy either. Battle mechanics are some of the worst I've ever tried in an RPG game.. All in all, it feels and plays like a simplified version of Gothic 3, Gothic being the better of the two, except for tons of bugs it had. If you're not in a hurry to play a decent RPG, you might wanna wait for something better...
Just played the Demo from steam. Based on that my advise is. Don't buy it. Its not worth more than 10 bucks. Gothic 2 was much better, because of the time it was released. Risen just feel out of context for it's time.
Almost bug-free game. I especially like clones all over the island or a flying shield behind main hero's back. Looks just fantastic! =) To me, this game is a little bit better than Gothic 3. Look forward to Arcania. They must make the most of game's graphics and plot. Not an easy task.
if this game is like gothic 3 i will pass.... i will try divinity instead better graphics and gameplay.
I had to search around just to find more info on this game. http://www.gamerzines.com/pc/reviews/risen.html I think I will wait for more reviews to come in, but I am in the mood for lengthy RPG.
Finally ....I was afraid thinking about Im the only one who wants a nice 3rd person rpg......I tried with Elder Scroll: Oblivion, but it SUCK in 3rd person mode, and same ahppen to me with Fallout3...Im waiting for this one
your right it has been a long time since a good 3rd person rpg well fallout3 but that sucked in 3rd better in 1st
well...just like were there is smoke there is fire....were there is a strom there is an interesting story. plus that it's TRUE 3rd person. and it has been a long time since we played a decent TRUE 3rd person rpg am i right?.and by "TRUE 3rd person rpg" i mean something like Gothik.we all loved it and i'm sure that we're gona love this one. and as for the graphic whores....if you don't like it shut up and go play Crysis or something like that. wankers.
Can't say much about the trailer (teaser sound better for this as some already said). But from the screenshots it really looks like gothic... let's hope the design and the engine are different. Gothic series were ones of the best games I've played, but the character was a bit hard to move (at least at the beggining), as if he needed to take a deep breath before moving an arm, that really made gameplay a bit dull at the begginig and that's why many people didn't like it. Let's hope this time the pj will have more fluent moves.
gabycms, one of the reasons PB left Jowood and (lost their Gothic IP) was due to the fact Jowood was forcing early and buggy releases. They say its going to be different now that they have a new publisher.... so lets hope.
