Je ne sais pas trop sur quel pied danser avec Risen 2.
Les codes de l'univers des pirates sont respectés scrupuleusement, avec son lot de trognes patibulaires, de coups fourrés entre pirates, de rhum, de trésors... La direction artistique est très bonne (la musique nettement moins).
Le point fort de Risen 2 est l'écriture de l'histoire, non pas de la quête principale (assez convenue) mais plutôt des à-côtés de l'histoire ; les dialogues (le doublage est excellent), les commentaires captés au hasard des rencontres. Tout ceci donne de l'épaisseur à l'univers et aux personnages que l'on croise. Il faut surtout éviter de passer à côté de grands moments d'hilarité quand on prend possession d'un personnage grace à la magie vaudou (le seul intérêt à mon avis de cette branche du personnage).
Mais Risen 2, c'est aussi un système de combat bien lourd, la maniabilité du personnage est parfois énigmatique, certaines branches de développement du personnage laissent dubitatif et ne présentent pas beaucoup d'intérêt.
Les DLCs proposés (l'Île au trésor et Le Temple de l'Air) sont absolument anecdotiques.
En résumé, un titre franchement excitant pas moments, mais qui traînent des boulets qui risquent de lasser rapidement de nombreux joueurs.

NB pour les chasseurs de succès :
Longtemps, un grand nombre de succès étaient irréalisables, car le jeu remettait à zéro la progression à chaque fermeture. Aujourd'hui, tous les succès sont atteignables mais en trafiquant à tout va via la console. Il est même possible de les obtenir tous en à peine une heure. C'est fort dommage et Risen 2 ne méritait pas cela.

rpg bien sympa. dans un univers de la piraterie ce qui change un peu de la fantaisie.
la narration y est sympathique, l'histoire classique : un monstre nous menace, on doit récupérer des armes pour la tuer.
graphiquement le paysage est correct encore aujourd'hui mais les animations sont datés.
la musique est présente mais discrète. elle tourne malheureusement un peu en boucle =/
pour un rpg les quêtes sont fournies et bien amenées.
l'evolution du perso est un peu lente. je suis deçu du côté magie qui n'existe plus. ça été remplacé par le vaudou mais pour débloquer les compétences ça prend trop de temps et d'argent, pour un résultat assez moyen. en fait le problème c'est qu'il faut dépenser à la fois bcp d'exp pour améliorer ses compétences et après il faut dépenser énormément d'argent pour débloquer les talents liés aux compétences. du coup perso je dépensais jamais mon argent pour l’équipement, je suis donc rester en guenille les 3/4 du jeu. le système n'est pas mauvais mais mérite d'être mieux équilibré je trouve.
mais le plus lourd dans ce jeu sont les combats. totalement à la ramasse en 1v1, même bien up il faut faire des combines avec la lance pour réussir a passer certains donjons tellement on prend cher en tant normal ds ce jeu.
puis quelques bug de temps en temps par exemple une des dernière quête : j'ai du recommencer un combat parce qu'un objet essentielle n’avait pas été looté par le boss...
mais il reste un rpg auquel on accroche bien une fois la partie lancée =)

One of the worst RPGs I ever had the displeasure of playing. Let me break down my favourites just for the fun of it...

- Clunky Controls : The guy moves like a friggin tank and everything feels so horribly sluggish, especially paired with those stiff as wood animations.

- Terrible Combat : Click click click click click click click..Oh wait, there's actualy counter parries, dodge rolls and..nvm click click click click click click..Also, enemies can break your attack animation by simply hitting you with whatever they fancy. You, however, can not do the same to them, which is especially fun when you often have to fight 2 or 3 things at once.

- Tedious Quests : This game even makes you pay your hard earned..and I mean HARD EARNED gold to move on in some quests. Nothing more RPG than having a silvertongue skill of 60 to make a ♥♥♥♥♥ drop her price from 1000 to 500 gold..well invested skills points, sir...Or you get the usual "collect this and that through laborious and unfun work from all corners of the island".

- Level Up System : You do not level up, you just acquire fame which you then have to spend in 5 categories. Then you also get to pay gold to learn new "abilites" like thieving or lockpicking, for which you often require a certain level in the aforementioned categories. Lockpicking, for example, needs you to have spent around 20000 fame to even be able to learn it on a very basic level. Doing a quest usually gives you 50-100 fame as does killing an enemy..you do the maths. This ties into..

- Exploration Denied : Imagine beating some tough monsters, by letting your comrade do all the work just to reach a chest. Oh no, it requires a xx in lockpicking skill. Access denied, unless you already assembled 20000 fame somehow and the gold to upgrade your skill and the clothing to add some bonus to your skills. In the end you won't even bother to explore anymore, because you will usually lack the skills to reap the rewards. But if you do not lack them, then this ties into..

- Worst Loot EVER : Fancy finding new weapons ? New armor ? A cool hat ? Magic Boots ? Haha, no...All the good items you will get (all those..less than 15 pieces of clothing available in the whole game), will require you to buy them from merchants.. There is absolutely nothing to find equipment-wise, except for a few broken sword pieces which you can smith together (requires you to have spent fame and gold and what not again though to learn smithing in the first place, so..basically not for free either). You won't find any clothes ever, in fact most chest rewards will be absolutely laughable like..I don't know...finding 10 gold in a chest or maybe..MAYBE 50..Usually it's just a major waste of time and effort.

- Fighting the Kraken and the final boss : Ok, mostly the Kraken..who designed that and why ? Seriously..

All in all this game is a major step down from Risen 1, which already wasn't the best game in the world, but still better than this..product.

Some of my friends call me silly because of this, but ever since I played Gothic, the first Piranha Bytes game I've ever played, I've been following the games the company has released and to this day, I have yet to find one that I don't like. Most of my friends tend to curse at the "difficult" gameplay and levelling up, but I say to them - "That's old-school for you." And I like it. Nowadays, I find some of the games a bit too easy to play, but the old-school ones make me think before I start slashing and hacking at enemies, because it can happen that a boar gets me from the back and I'm done.

Risen 2 reminds me of the Gothic series quite a but, but it shouldn't surprise me since it's made by the same company. I am in love with its graphics and the storyline is very interesting. I also quite like the character redesigns from the first Risen game and their development throughout the game. Take the main protagonist for example - at the beginning of the game he's a drunkard, right? And at the end of the game, he rises as a hero again.

The new enemies are quite interesting too - I've always wanted to play more pirate games, but I haven't found an interesting one as of yet, excluding Gothic II's Addon and Risen 2 - did you notice that both of the games that made pirates interesting are made by PB? :)

Anyway, I warmly recommend this game to everyone that doesn't get too frustrated with the "difficult" gameplay. As I said, that's old-school for ya.

Bottoms up, Captain!

Oh lads, how I enjoyed this game. Robbing graves, fighting monsters and drinking rum is what you would expect from this game and it's what you get and I can't miss to mention digging treasures!

The world is divided into Lost realm and New World. Lost realm is where Titans fight each other in order to rule the world as the strongest power in the universe. You are starting the game in Caldera , mankind's last bastion on the Lost realm, and you arre given the most important quest - to save the world by killing one of the Titans, a sea monster known as Mara. It's not an easy task and you will have to do everything you can imagine for that, even be publicly expelled from the Inquision an organization protecting the manking. Your first step is to get an anciant artefact, a magical Spear, it's told to be the only weapon able to kill Mara. Rumor says pirate Captain Steelbeard has found it and you have to become a pirate to find him!

Gameplay and story are really exciting, but fight system is not so good and better to not mension boss fight which are more boring than interesting. Still game offers almost 30 hours of amazing gameplay.

6.5 /10

I had a great time playing this game. Is it glitchy? Yes. Embarassingly so. Is it cheesy? Arrr. It be cheesy matey.
Nonetheless, it is also somewhat epic as an RPG and as a pirate game. It can be unforgiving at first, but once you get over the hump and start being able to afford upper tier training, things start moving really quickly.
The game itself is unabashedly silly as far as the dialogue goes, the graphics arent great by todays standards, but the gameplay is nonetheless quite solid, the cutscenes are pretty well done, etc....

This is a game you will love if you give it a fair chance, love RPG's, love pirates, and arent afraid of rough edges.

By the way, what be a pirates favorite letter? "R" you say. Nay, it be the C. *rimshot*

Anyway, I give this 7 Arrs out of 10.

This game pulled me right in and I couldn't stop playing it. Very few games have done this to the degree that this one did. I found it intense, a blast to play, and so much atmosphere. I give this game a 10 our of 10, and I am getting ready to play it again before I play Risen 3. I totally recommend this game. I am 62 years old and have been gaming on the pc since the commodore 64 days, and this is one of the best role playing games I have come across. Buy it! You will not be sorry!!

Risen 2: Dark Waters is a direct continuation to Risen, featuring the same nameless hero and some of his old companions, Patty and Steelbeard, but set in an entirely new ambientation. Risen 2 parts from the sword and shield medieval fighting world of Faranga to a musket, pistol, cannon and sabers fighting modern age.

Risen 2 is set in the age of the conquistadors, where a kind of sabre-fighting and musket-shooting Spanish fleet is invading new lands inhabited by spear-throwing and voodoo-casters natives. You, a "good pirate", must fight the "bad pirates" for relics to fight the water titan lord, Mara, and for that, you need to choose to side with the inquisition, which will give you muskets, or the Natives, which will give you voodoo spells.

It is a story about the romantic and cliche view of pirates, With a lot of rum, eye patches, parrots, typical clothing and speaking, etc. Despite being a mediocre RPG, the story is captivating. If you see it on a sale, it is worth buying and giving a chance.

If you have played Risen before, you'll find better and worse aspects in comparison:

First, the battle system was crippled. It's a shame, since Risen battle system was very good. Even without training, one could battle stronger enemies given enough skill. Now, without training, you can't do anything but swing your sword around. You can't dodge anymore, the dodge was changed to a kind of roll, which is not only unrealistic (because you roll too far away) but serves only to flee, since you don't end up in a good position to counter attack.

Second, magic was removed from the game. It just didn't fit in the modern feel the developers wanted for the game. Instead, it was changed for voodoo, a kind of cursing spells used by the natives, that is almost useless for combat but adds interesting events in the game.

And third, for the good news, quests are less linear and more interesting.

7/10 - Much worse game than Risen 1, combat is for no reason worse and the whole game feel less polished, like almost low-budget title. The pirate theme is new and somehow welcomed change, Patty is funny and story isnt bad either. Shame the Gothic feel from Risen 1 definitely died with this game.

This was an amazing game! As a huge fan of fantasy rpgs, this game had everything I could want and more. Risen 1 was a cool but hard game. This one was so much more smooth and very enjoyable. A tad on the simple side maybe, but oh my it was so much fun. I loved the drawback of pirates, natives, and conquistadors that gave the game such an exotic feel. The story is really good and the companions are very helpful and fun. This was a fantastic game that I highly reccomend. The dlcs aren't really worth it but they do add money and experience. If you love rpgs, pirates, or the amazing games of deep silver then I know you'll just love this booty of awesomeness!

The controls can get frustrating at times but more often then not you don't even notice. Not for casuals who want everything handed to them; you actually have to manage your gold instead of being able to buy out every store you come across and when you get new equipment it actually means something instead of a constant stream of over powered disposable weapons. It is a good old school game with a great story and a decent sense of humor The gnome you can get on your crew is hilarious . The combat system was dumbed down from the original but what do you expect when they make a game with consoles in mind. Over all give this game a chance and you wont regret it.

The story is fine, although I didn't play the first one. It was sometimes frustrating because it was slow at loading and had to save too many times while fighting, and also the game ran slow on my computer. But the gameplay was good, the story wasn't exactly short and upgrading skills took time. But after the final fight, you can't do anything, so if you missed some missions you have to load your last savefile before going to the Water Temple . But it's overall a nice game. 7/10

Note: Copy-Paste from my review of Risen 1. You shouldn't play Risen 2 without having played Risen 1.

Personal rating: 8/10
Replayability: Medium
Budget: Worth it.
Lenght: A few days to a week.

Risen 2 specific notes: Risen 2, apart from what I have to say about the series in general below, has a slightly clumsy combat system, and feels like a partial attempt at making a Sid-Meyer's Pirates! inspired RPG, but remains a very good game.

I'm not sure what to think of Risen. The company behind Risen made Gothic, a series that I loved. Gothic has a tragic story, funding was cut from the expansion pack to the third installment, resulting in a buggy game that felt unfinished, and had the wrong voice-actors. The dreaded fourth installment that the orginal company wasn't even part of, killed the series, and I hear this is why they started Risen on the side.

While I was initially excited about Risen, I feel like Risen is some sort of attempt from the company's side to "win back" their original ideas for gothic. It feels like they're trying to make the same game, but different.

Still, Risen has a decent story, but Risen is a series, and the third installment just game out. I'll try not to judge Risen 1 on the sequels, but it's hard, because frankly Risen 2 feels like they retconned a lot of Risen 1 in an attempt to reboot their franchise as a sort of "pirate age" age game, even though it clearly felt like a high-fantasy gothic medieval game in the first installment.

Separately though, the games are quite good, it's just a bit of a snag to get over how poorly they connect, despite several characters making appearances in both games.

In many ways, Risen perfectly embodies the spirit of Gothic and does provide some not-seen-before elements. Where in Gothic, you felt like you were the nameless master-mind behind a gang of anti-heroes who follow you out of some misguided sense of loyalty (honor among thieves, I guess) rather than true friendship, always facing challenges in a hostile world as you go about, in Risen you feel like people actually have a more "human" relationship towards you. Sure, you're still a nameless guy but apart from a select few individuals, you're truly alone this time, but your friendships in the game are based on actual frienship, meaning the character actually has some relationships with people.

Risen in no way beats or threatens the legacy of the 3 real gothic games, but if you liked gothic, you NEED to play Risen too.

Fun fact: Many fans believe that unofficially, Risen is set several years in the future of the original gothic trilogy. Read more on this theory on the internet.

Tedious eurojank WRPG with fun dialogue and role-playing mechanics. I personally enjoy it, and it's one of the few pirate RPGs out there.

Get parry and flourish asap if you want to make the rest of the game tolerable even if you don't want to spec in swords.

Get in a bundle. Get in my bundle.

Risen 2: Dark Waters strays away from the norm of modern RPGs and tries new things that is both innovative and unfitting of the game's tone. It's mechanics can be a bit of a chore at first but once you get a hold of it and how it works, then it's as easy as the next modern RPG around the corner.

Performance
Somewhat a polarizing port because it has very high textures and amazing lighting but it also has frequent texture pop-ins and shadow problems. Performance on a FX-6300 processor, R9 270 GPU, and 8GB of RAM in a 1080p resolution with every graphics option set to it's highest setting yields a maximum of 65 FPS and an average of 52 FPS. In the jungle areas where there is more foliage, the framerate can sometimes go down to 44 FPS.

No bugs or crashes experienced during playthroughs but the weird nature of some of the game's assets make it look like there are.

Gameplay
Risen 2 caters more to the old school RPG gamers rather than modern ones because it has very limited mechanics that modern gamers are probably very used to. First off, it's an action RPG with only three weapon types: swords, guns, and voodoo dolls. Even with the limited weapon types though, each encounter with the enemy requires a perfect balance and usage between the three. You will not win the game with just a sword and gun alone.

Second: it's hard as hell because of the fact that almost all of the enemies have higher attack speed than you do. Unlike modern RPGs where you can just waltz through enemy flanks and armies, Risen 2 requires a lot of patience if you want to fight the enemy effectively. I think that the devs deliberately set the attack speed that high so the players will be forced to dodge and block as well rather than just hacking your way through enemies. It's questionable and annoying but once you get the hang of it, then every encounter is easy as pie.

Third: resource management is a must because everything costs money - even basic skills like sneaking and power attacks. Most of the time, you'll spend your money on potions because enemy hits are very powerful. Because of this, you won't have money to purchase essential and useful skills like lockpicking and potion making. This needs to balanced out and certain mechanics should be repurposed.

Graphics
Graphics are very nice - especially the lighting. However, there's a big issue with texture pop-ins and shadow flickering.

For a game released in 2012, the animations and character models are very bad compared to other games released in the same year.

Story
The game's story works on a very cliched level and is very forgetful. However, there's a lack of backstory and the main villain is just there as a sort of prop. The ending... well let's just say that the ending was somewhat disappointing.


And there you have it. Old school RPG gamers should really give Risen 2: Dark Waters a chance. However, even with the recommended rating, I highly suggest that you buy this at sale rather than full price because it's just no that worthy of a full priced game.

This game was a real disappointment to me. I've really liked the first Risen, but Risen 2 is nothing what the first game made me expect from it. Developers have completly broken the combat. It was challenging and enjoyable in Risen 1... Here it's almost like combat from some MMORPG where you keep clicking and use special attacks. Changing the whole theme to pirates just doesn't seem fitting because the first game was nothing like this. The story seems generic and not really immersive... I've bought this game back when it was out, at a full price, and really tried to enjoy it, but I just couldn't. While Risen 2 is not THAT terrible, it just didn't meet my expectations. It has little to do with Risen 1, and I can't say I'd recommend it.

You should play this game if you meet the following requirements:
- you're lucky enough to get the game working on the first try
- you are willing to do much of reinstalling, updating and verifying
- you don't care about achievements
- you don't use quick save every 30 seconds


+ great environmental details, landscapes, day/night cycle and weather
+ Jaffar, ♥♥♥ yes!
- not so great voice acting
- few of the nice elements like sand, parrots and powder barrels weren't enough to make the dull and repetitive combat more dynamic
- the cutscenes aiming to be dramatic ended up being ridiculous
- story was rather unremarkable and the whole world coulda been a bit more unique and more creative
- Kraken fight, really?
- this game doesn't replace quicksaves so make sure you have a good 10-15gb room for them
- it's weirdly disconnected from steam, so you'll have to work hard to get any of the 'do this x times" achievements

Rpgs are my life and I love the pirate theme, but this game just didn't work for me. I hear Risen 3 is much better. Onto it.

A great RPG/Adventure game. The first 2/3 of the game I'd say I preferred the original, but towards the end I was all about #2 (I also haven't played Risen in a couple of years so my memory of it is a little foggy). I do like how Risen was more like Gothic overall, and Risen is definitely more challening than #2.. There were times it felt easy for this kind of game (I played it all the way through on Medium except I turned it on easy during the annoying target practice part). Risen 2 does have some pretty good graphics, but nothing mind blowing. There are also some graphical glitches from time to time, but nothing major. It doesn't run as smooth as the first Risen either. I also do prefer the combat in Risen, but after unlocking a ton of skills the gameplay in Risen 2 does get better and better as you go. The story also gets better the further it got along, but I also think that Risen and the Gothic games I played are the same in that way. Well, in the Risen and Gothic games everything just seems to get better and better. They're all really fun games that put a big emphasis on exploring. Exploration is the main ingredient, and Risen 2 gives you lots of area to explore. It's not a huge game, but it is big. The soundtrack is pretty solid, too. The voice acting is good most of the time. Some of the dialogue is fun. Most of it is kind of what you'd expect in a RPG game like this, but the pirate theme adds some rough dialogue that can be amusing. When the game was all said and done I felt I had enough, but I really enjoyed my time with Risen 2. It's an underrated game, for sure. 8/10
