WASDuk Reviews Risen 3 Enhanced Edition

"It looks prettier and with everything included it’s the best version of the game consoles at least. But that being said there hasn’t been much else done to improve any other aspect of the experience, so if you hated the original despite the facelift you’ll still dislike Risen 3 Enhanced Edition."

The story is too old to be commented.

I actually like this game!

Me too, I've always liked the Gothic/Risen series, glad they gave us PC owners of the game the enhanced visuals too.

So does it play exactly like the gothic and risen games? Played and loved gotic 1&2 and the first risen, so i might just have to pick this one up.

Gothic 2 in particular is probably my favorite pc rpgs ever. No joke, played it like 10 times

The Risen series has gotten a lot of undeserved hate over the years, and I can only put it down to being "too British" for anyone but the UK to like, which is weird considering it was devved in Germany.

Lon3wolf1209d ago

Which is odd as it's not a UK product at all, it's German. I think people have been too harsh with Gothic/Risen games as they don't fall into a particular RPG design, shame as I love em :D.

I think you might be right. They fall into a strange category all their own, it seems. Honestly, they're buggy and weird, and don't hold to a lot of current RPG conventions, which is why I think people like them.

Seeing a lot of these quirks described as faults is strange to me, though. As though what an RPG "should be" is declared by the most popular.

This was one of my favorite games from 2014 and this series is one of my all time favorite western-style RPG series, ranking up there with Gothic, Fallout, and The Elder Scrolls.

I'll never understand the hate, but I suppose there are people out there that would be baffled by my lack of enthusiasm towards Halo, God of War, Gears of War, Bioshock, and other such popular series.

As they say, different strokes for different folks.
