An interesting game from the developers of the Gothic franchise. The Gothic games were considered excellent but flawed with bugs by some but mediocre by others. If you liked the Gothic games you'll surely find something to like in Risen even though its story isn''t as grand or interesting as the one in the Gothic series. However you have an entire island to explore and some choices to make regarding which side you'll support in the game (different sides mean different fighting styles and different character development).
The enemies you'll fight are the usual animals and undead you'll find in other games of this kind and the graphics are a bit mediocre but the game is quite good even though the ending could be better. Overall an interesting experience especially if you buy it cheap on one of the sales for 5$.
