Set several years after the end of Risen, raging titans have devastated the world and pushed humanity to the brink of existence. Subsequently, monstrous creatures have risen from the watery depths of the sea and their attacks have brought all seafaring to a grinding halt. The hero, now a member of the Inquisition, is sent out to find out how to stop the chaos caused by these creatures from the deep. His quest begins with rumors that the pirates who frequent the southern islands are the only ones who know a way to get rid of the creatures once and for all and end their reign of terror. With an all-new pirate-based theme, Risen 2: Dark Waters aims to combine the most loved classic RPG gameplay mechanics of the original Risen with a fresh theme and setting on a huge variety of themed island locales. A third-person role-playing game set in a dark and gritty universe, Risen 2: Dark Waters maintains the most immersive features of the original Risen, with multiple approaches to every challenge allowing players to shape the game world based on their own decisions. These choices will serve to unlock new paths, features and additional skills for the character. Together with a highly interactive environment and a full day/night-cycle affecting countless aspects of the game world, Risen 2 will be set in the most immersive RPG game world so far.
Many horrible years have passed since the Gods abandoned the world and the titans rose from the confines of their prisons. They devastated everything in their path with unstoppable force.
However, there is a place on the southern tip of the Old Empire which still seems safe from the clutches of the Titans – the “Crystal Fortress” in Caldera. It is the headquarters of the Inquisition and a place of refuge for the people. It is repeatedly attacked by sea monsters, and supply ships are sunk en route. Nobody knows how long the walls will hold; food and weapons are gradually running out.
The nameless hero, devastated by the developments on Faranga, now drowns his sorrows in rum in the harbour town Caldera. As the situation grows more and more dire due to the shortage of food, he sets out on a mission to put an end to the sea monsters once and for all.

Risen 2 will dissapoint many at first. You cannot sail a ship, at least not directly, and you cannot swim. For me that takes a big part of being a Pirate away. But with dated graphics, bad voice acting and a storyline that is not exactly brilliant....how does Risen 2 play out?
You step into the boots of the nameless hero. Set some time after the events of the first game, we find our hero in the employ of the Inquisition (antogonists of the first game), whom are basically humanity's last hope of salvation. The World is on the verge of collapse as age old Titans have been summoned from the depths of the earth and sea to wreak havoc. The seas are no longer safe, for giant sea monsters prowl the depths and are constantly sinking ships. This in some ways explains why you cannot swim...
Anyway as mankind finds itself pushed out of the old kingdom it's hopes and dreams look South into the Seas of the new world. And this is where the game is set. You begin in an Inquisition stronghold and soon after you are tasked with setting sail and searching for a weapon that can challenge the power of the Titans. The gameworld is broken into Islands and you can explore the areas freely. I must say that the Islands and weather effects, day night cycle etc are nice and really add to the atmosphere of the Piratey theme. You will stroll golden beaches, explore small settlements and stumble upon sugar plantations.Read more ›
This game has been "Trashed" by gaming reviewers world wide NOT FAIR.
I have almost completed the game and have over 75 hours of gameplay to my credit.
It has a huge relatively open world of gameplay and is a classic rpg.
Pros: Superb voice acting being both vulger and hilarious at the same time.
Loads of chests to find,legendary items to improve your stats a nice selection of clothes,accessories etc.
Nice "Piraty" atmosphere.
Ist Class main storyline.
The combat system is rather basic and could have been improved.
Graphics are nice but not groundbreaking.
I found the game to be a lot of fun and never boring.
So with the price being radically reduced,you should give it a try.
I am sure you won't be dissapointed.
1. The console port of 'Risen 2' is not optimal because moving your character around is very clumsy and clunky. I played the first 'Risen' game on console and the controls were clunky there as well, however not to the same extent as in 'Risen 2'. If you are low on patience don't get this game.
2. The leveling system is slow and unnecessarily complicated, where each skill branches out into a handful of smaller areas, which then fill different pre-requisites when leveling.
1. You eventually get companions in the game. You get Patty from the start who can help you in combat, its optional to bring her along but I strongly recommend it. The companions decrease the difficulty of the game to a more reasonable level and also compensate for the clumsy combat controls.
2. The game-world is twice as large as in the first game.
For the first 30 hrs of gameplay you progress linearly through the game-map but eventually you get to freely move around the islands.
3. Returning to an island will re-spawn the wildlife there so you can do some grinding and earn money from sales. You also need the animal parts for your voodoo practicing.
4. The Voodoo and Thief paths were cool and original: you can train a monkey to pickpocket for you and a parrot to take the aggro from animals during combat, you can take control of certain NPCs and animals through voodoo, etc.
You can't do this in other RPGs.

Add to this a game where the graphics feel blocky and clunky against a number of other games out there and for many this will be a very short adventure as they could well be turned off. That said, I did persevere with the game and as I levelled up and my skills got better I didn't die as much, I learned what style of gameplay suited me and for an RPG it's an OK offering. The game is big and you will spend quite a bit of time sailing between islands in order to try to pick up additional pieces of booty as you develop the ability to capture them.
However if you're expecting the full pirate adventure you're not going to get that, money was hard to come by (you couldn't capture ships for the cargo to sell) with the only real income coming from whatever you could find and the odd bit of robbing of people's homes or pickpocketing. With the worst bit being after killing a certain pirate captain you couldn't even take his ship or grab anything from it to sell. (And let's face it cannons are a licence to mint gold.)
Other than that my only real complaint was to do with the level of swearing within the game, I felt a lot of it was unnecessary (with the f-bomb being dropped every few lines) and as such detracted from the game.Read more ›

The game arrived well within the timescale and was well packaged. The game itself is simple fun if pretty dated in terms of its production values and graphics. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Mariner13

Really playable RPG with a few rough edges.
As a fan of Fallout, Skyrim etc I'm glad I gave this a chance - great humour and an enjoyable distraction for quite a while.
