    Risen could (or should) be a great game, but like all of deep silver games, it is bugy as hell...

    Well when I first heard about this game, I was thinking to myself "Here we go again, another game developer trying to capture some of Bethesda's magic... and failing". Well I am happy to say today that Risen is actually ... Read Full Review
