Zeitgeist Game Review said:
"A few weeks back I got my hands on a preview build of Piranha Bytes latest Action RPG Risen 2 and I gave you my thoughts on the game and let you know what you should expect upon the full release. Well, after playing through the full version of the game, I can tell you that minus a few issues with the combat system, I loved it! The first Risen game had a lot of mixed reviews as the PC version was far superior to the versions that came out on the consoles. Keep in mind that I only played the PC version of Risen 2, so I can’t comment on how the console versions turned out this time."
