"There is something about a hardcore PC RPG title that really sets me in a good mood. The idea that you don't just kill beasts for the kill, but also to provide you sustenance in the form of food to regenerate health feels right in an RPG. Or the idea that you have to mine ore and gold along with buying sword blanks to create your own weapons is fitting in a hardcore PC RPG title. RISEN fits all of these hardcore PC RPG traits, however, I am not playing RISEN on the PC. I am playing it on the Xbox 360, and while I did enjoy the title, most will probably want to pass up this title, because it is such a hardcore experience that does not fit into the hardcore audience. It is not a bad title, but a title that never slots in with the platform that it is being played on."
