Risen 2 Review (NGN)

NGN: "It isn't often that a game world is so well crafted that it stands on its own in making the title worth playing. Risen 2 is a game you should play if you enjoy using games as a form of escapism. The combat is functional but clunky, the story is fun and entertaining but it isn't what keeps you coming back; it's the organically designed world steeped in a unique and well executed pirate theme that will make you fall in love with this charming role playing game. Like its predecessor, Risen 2 is a fleshed out RPG with a lengthy campaign and an emphasis on exploration and completing fun and varied quests. Risen 2 doesn't offer the same level of choice and freedom that its predecessor did, but the trade-off is that its sequel is more accessible, better paced and much more colourful, not to say the first Risen didn't have its fair share of charm. " (PC, Risen 2: Dark Waters) 76/100
