Gameplayer......Good role-playing does not grow on trees. Role play with good ambitions are not quite reach all the way there, however how much any of out there. Risen, which probably can be described a bit like a Gothic-copy, belong without doubt the latter category. It's pretty neat, with beautiful environments, semi-decent HP Lovecraft-inspired story, and probably with both adventure, intrigue and taxes in order to satisfy the adventurer at any time. The game's biggest problem is simply that it is not forgiving enough.
