Rated 2 out of 5 by from Let Down I bought this game from the 9.99 bin, and I should have left it there. I've been at it almost a week and have yet to get into it. When I think of RPG's, I think of the Final Fantasy series, Fable, and Oblivion. This fell VERY short of my RPG expectaions. The controls are awkward, I'm not agreeing with the combat system, and the menus take a lot of getting used to. Leveling up isn't about EXP, its about money and "skill points". No armor yet and its frustratng because even wth a decent weapon, you're stll gonna get owned 70% of the time. That goes back to the faulty battle system also. I've read a lot of great reviews about Risen, and maybe I'm not far enough into the game for it to be any good, but for now I'm contemplating putting it in my "trade in" pile. I'm sure the game was made with great intentions. Sorry, but I'm just not captivated...:(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing... This game... it's worse than Two Worlds 1 in my book. They took a new approach to 'Hack & Slash' called 'Dodge & Block', and until you master this you are gonna get roughed up. But with the horrid controls... maybe that's the problem altogether. I played this game a few times, why I do not know... I certainly do not like it. Get Arcania instead, it's basically the game I was expecting Risen to be when I wasted my money on it (Risen being the waste, not Arcania).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Played for a bit and it was just bad. The controls are bad just everything is bad. If you would tap the right stick you turn completley around.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dry gameplay, empty story, and a waste of my time. This game started off very slow, with close to no tutorial of the games awkward menu system. Right off the bat you are thrown into an enclosed village, where no one is allowed to leave. While inside, you spend hours trying to figure out how to get out, wishing you could explore that almost tolerable looking world. But unfortunately this game falls flat almost immediately. Very quickly you lose the will to continue your "adventure" and find yourself scurrying back to the video store. A poor attempt at a character/stat builder is made, but is easily forgotten because of its frustrating qualities and poor execution. Leave this for the RPG hipsters, and never come back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent game this game was a little slow in the start. you wash up on shore after your boat crashes. you venture in the island and you kill some monsters. then you have 3 ways to go, you can go to a town called harbor town which is controlled by the inquisition(become a mage),you can go to a swamp and fight for Don Estaban(warrior/rogue), or get captured and thrown into the monastery(staff fighter). as you venture farther and farther through the game, you start seeing lizardmen.(somewhat of the problem at the island, this game will make you hate the word lizard.) You soon find out, that these lizards are coming from behind a giant wall that you open after finding these crystal disks,a cave is inside. at the end of the game you fight a lame battle against a titan deep inside of that cave.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Rpg Fans I love it. Gameplay is great. Combat is ok. Dialog is a little on the lengthy side but not too bad. Multiple options on direction give it a good replay value. Worth playing for any RPG fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable, but frustrating I picked up Risen because it was a free game on a buy two get one free deal, so I figured I would try it. I was pleasantly shocked because it was very fun. There is a few different paths you can take in this game with the main story, which is always a plus. Your actions have an immediate and obvious effect of the way others live, which was a very cool concept. The game is fun to play, running around killing things is not great fun, but enjoyable. But there were a few things that have kept me from going back and finishing this game off. It gives me a headache to play this game, the dialogue sequences hurt to watch. Literally it gives me a headache after 2-3 hours of gameplay. There just doesn't seem to be much to do besides the main story and a few side quests. Maybe I just haven't found that much, but an island with basically 2 large towns doesn't quite cut it for me. The story is enjoyable, but forgettable. You spend a lot of time running around talking to people, which is great considering the effect it has and how dull combat is. There are skills like smithing, but i really haven't found a great use for them other than filler skills. All in all this is an enjoyable game, but it would have been great if they fixed a few minor things.
