That's right, we have three more reviews to read:
RPG Codex is disappointed:
"Ending this review, I can only ask myself one question. Just what the hell happened? Risen 2 has basically screwed up everything it could. The combat is horrid, the exploration tedious, the quest design atrocious. The 25 hours it takes to finish the game is better spent hitting your head against the wall. What was Piranha Bytes trying to do? Have they not learned their friggin lesson with the transition from Gothic 2 to Gothic 3 and then to Risen again? The saddest part is that there is actually some potential here, some interesting ideas hidden under all the piles of horrible design. It could have been a truly great game, if only they copied the mechanics from Risen 1 with some tweaks. But ideas are not substance."
Gamer Sector think it's decent:
"Ultimately, Risen 2 is a much better game than its predecessor, and is a decent addition to any RPG collection. But there are some design flaws that keep it from true greatness, but it is still above, if only slightly, the normal RPG's we see.
The Good: Sword fighting, pirate theme, interface
The Bad: Overpowered guns, small control issues, skill trainers"
Charles Battersby for Player Affinity:
"If players are prepared before starting the game, and are willing to play Risen 2 on the developers’ terms, then it can be a very fun game. It has a free-roaming nature, giving players lots of sidequests and optional stories to pursue. There are also story and faction choices at various occasions, so players will be able t explore this world as they like… as long as they don’t choose to just head right down the main quest line.
Risen 2 is certainly going to be fun for pirate enthusiasts, and gamers who like to poke around virtual worlds just to see what’s out there. "
