Hopefully this game will actually be played by someone at Deep Silver before release. Dead Island could not have played before it was shoved out the door a buggy mess. Makes me apprehensive to reserve this one so I'll probably wait and pick it up used. Looks like it has a lot of potential, so lets hope.
Rated 7 out of 10 by emankcin Should have put more time into design
the game is a lil lagy. there was alot of copy and paste in the characters on the island. they should have put as much time into the graphics of the characters as they did the water that you cant even swim in for example. the thing that bothered me the most about the game is that on the main missions once you defeat the final character mara the game is over, you have to start over. thats bs, so if you dont do all the side quests and find all the treasures and what not before then your screwed. For sum one who liikes to play the games for what they are and then when missions are over i like to get my trophies for ps3 network and to not evenbe able to get them with out having to start completely over......whackkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 3 out of 10 by marvinthemartian Not a good game at all........
Review for Ps3 version...For one, the sound effects are terrible. MOst don't fit what the characters are doing. And, your follower makes sounds like some wild beast which makes you want to turn around to see if there's something creeping up behind you. Ok, two is the fighting, jumping, running and over-all view range you have... You can't really do a decent block. And then there's the fact that the so called lock on doesn't keep the enemy in a centered forward view, and you have to constantly worry about trying to swing the camera around to keep them centered as you're fighting. But that's all I've got time to talk about those aspects. My biggest problem with the game is being able to view and read the words!!!!!!! I have a decent sized TV and the words are still too small!! I think they want us to go out and buy bigger, more expensive Television sets just to be able to read whatever the words are supposed to say. I can't afford to go out and do such a thing. To be able to get the TV needed to be able to read those small words, I'll have to get a screen as big as the local theaters' have. But then again, who's to say that the words will even be legible after doing that?!?! I gave up after 4 hours of play. I can't play a game that I can't even read the stats, weapon strengths or even item names in the menu. Oh, which reminds me.. the mapping system really sucks too!
Rated 2 out of 10 by marvinthemartian Don't waste your money
I tried to write a review earlier, and don't know if it actually went through. SO, here I am again......lol
Please don't waste your money on this game. The whole think just stinks with bad sound effects, story line, controller set-up, and especially the fact that you can't read a thing of what they do have written because the words or so small. I don't know about you, but I'd like to know my stats and the qualities of my weapons and armor, not to mention whatever else I have in inventory. But I can't, even on my 40 inch lcd tv, because the words are so small that they run together and I can't make them out for nothing.

I am currently playing/enjoying Risen 1 and I'm looking forward to playing Risen 2 it looks very promising and to those who are unsure of whether or not to get this game I'd recommend waiting for the reviews first, also to clarify this game is being published by Deep Silver but it's being developed by Piranha Bytes a German game developer best known for creating the Gothic RPG game series and the first Risen game. Rock on fellow gamers!
Rated 2 out of 10 by LJ71 Was this meant to be a PS2 game??
On par with last-gen games. Poor gameplay mixed terribly with out-of-sync graphics leading to a boring and predictable game. I read reviews prior to the games release, however still made the purchase and was thoroughly disappointed. Wait until the price drops to $20 (or in Risen 2's case lower) and take a trip into the past with these pPS2-like graphics and PSone-like gameplay. Where is Crash Bandicoot?
Rated 6 out of 10 by xxinnerdemonxx good and bad
the sound works most of the time but sometimes doesnt the graphics sucks and when people follow u they r so slow and u have to wait till they catch up and when u try 2 heal yourself u lose allot of health because he puts away his sword or gun when u do that and yeah but other then that its a ok game to rent do not buy it

This game for some reason to me looks very similar to fable games, maybe its just me...the images look very close to fable 2 and if it ends up having the same type of style i would be very glad.

I liked the way the first one was setup, but it had a ton of glitches, for them to talk about fixing the clone glitch in the pointers makes me wonder if they fixed any of the other ones....
Rated 0 out of 10 by RisenCritic Looks promising
Awesome! cannot wait for the release.I hope it has many hours to the game play being that it is an rpg.
