I played it a bit, but it's one of those games I just forgot about. Same with the two worlds games, gothic 3 and Arcania: Gothic 4. It sounds and looks nice (for the time) but it just doesn't scratch that itch quite right.

Idk why but I usually like their games , risens, elex etc. I've only played risen 2 risen 3, elex and elex 2. I'm gonna get the risen 1 at some point

Two Worlds 2 was also incredibly ambitious, wish the sequel would've happened

Their games have a certain level of jank and wouldn’t hurt to be more difficult but I still had a good time with Two Worlds 2 and would have bought a 3.

Shit elex took me a minute to stop being killed but once I learned a few tricks , etc I was doing good

These games "look" good from video clips/screenshots, but apparently they're pretty buggy and gameplay is wonky.. like developers had a great concept but with the scope, it was hard to deliver.. and that's for 3 games..


Review - Risen (PS4) | WayTooManyGames

WTMG's Aaron Price: "The long and short of it is that Risen is a fun action-adventure RPG. It is very rough around the edges, not to the extent of some other games in the genre that came out around the same time (looking at you, Two Worlds), but it has charm. If you’re a fan of Oblivion, or Skyrim, and want to see another game that has a similar style, this might be a good pickup.

Risen 2 is still available for digital download meaning you can easily get lost in this world but hours upon hours if you found yourself enjoying it. I don’t personally find this re-release to be a massive improvement over the original, as little to nothing in it has been actually revamped, but it’s still great to see the game get a release on more consoles than just the Xbox, or even just a way to experience the start of the series if you maybe played the sequel on PS3."

If this can be ported I would love to see Two Worlds. That game was a mess but still pretty fun. (And better than Risen in my opinion).

I logged back i to this site just to reply to this. Two Worlds 1 & 2 were very fun. The village building in 2, and all the different area to explore. The multiplayer in 1 was oddly satisfying. I say remaster both, and bring out that massive dlc for Two Worlds 2 that never released!
