This review is from: Risen (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Got this game on pre-order after visiting the developer's great website. Looked good. I'm a fan of Mass effect, Oblivion and the Fable games so thought this would be a good game to get into.
The graphics are poor and shaky.
The camera is jerky and unhelpful during combat especially. ( i frequently found myself facing away from attackers mid-combat.)
The voice acting and script are sub-par.
I had four hours of it before I threw in the towel - feeling depressed and a little annoyed.
This is sad as the game promised much. Perhaps there will be some patches put out to sort out the glitches via xboxlive. To me it seems that they've had to rush it out as the faults above are noticable from the very beginning of the game.
I'm going to trade it in today.
UPDATE - 5 weeks later I ended up getting Dragon Age. Now thats a proper game.

There is a good game in it but the points you made are correct and do make it hard to persevere, I cant help thinking a lot would have been solved if it had just been first person viewed instead.

The forums are not giving it a very good rating either. What bugs me is that we have to fork out cash for something thats not finished.
