6. Re: Risen 2 Demo Jun 24, 2012, 22:32 Ludomancer
I just started playing the full game last week. It took a while to get into it, but beyond the pirate theme it really is another classic Piranha Bytes game (for good and bad!).
These guys have always had a hard time with combat. I *still* can't actually use the "kick" feature in the game. For some reason it's assigned to the same button as jump, but there are onscreen prompts for when you're supposed to use it in battle, but every time (and I've put about 20 hours into the game), you just... jump. And then get smacked down by an enemy that's probably wondering why you look like such an idiot. It's pretty bad.
The rest of the game is quite good though. Classic PB towns with their well-written characters, familiar tropes like various factions you eventually have to side with, lots of adventure.... It's definitely not a bad game.
I would highly recommend Risen 2 to anyone who has a sudden urge for a new Gothic game, or who just wants to support the Little Developer who Could.
