Risen 3: Titan Lords NA
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
The world has been abandoned by its gods and is scarred from the rampage of the Titans. Humanity is struggling to regain strength and rally its forces. You, however, have more pressing concerns: your own life has been shattered and you must set off to reclaim what is lost amidst the darkness that is spreading throughout the world. Who knows, maybe you'll even save the world at the same time?
Three threads of destiny lie before you. Three ways to rise up against the Titans and regain your soul. Which path to take? The choice is yours.
Freedom: Freely explore and take on quests at your leisure. Quests will have different ways to tackle them and different outcomes. You can play different parts of the game in whatever order you wish and shape your character individually.
Exploration: Discover quests and characters as you make your way through the diverse world of Risen 3 - Titan Lords. From quaint medieval-style towns to delving deep into the dank dark of mines, to the supernatural shadow world, there is a wealth of possibilities waiting to be explored. You will be able to traverse this world in a variety of ways, from swimming to climbing.
Enhanced combat: Featuring a revamped fighting system, with new animation systems in place that add nuance to the fights.
Magic is back! Crystal magic has returned, bringing with it devastating new combat abilities. Wield elements such as lightning, fire and ice to obliterate your foes, or make use of a multitude of additional magical skills to aid you in exploration - the choice is yours!
Guilds & factions: Choose to ally yourself with one of three distinct guilds, each offering unique skills, armouries and quests allowing you to approach your quest in very different ways. Discover additional factions that exist to bend the balance of political power in the world, each with their own agenda for you to uncover. Be careful which characters you trust – some might ally with you with the intent of fulfilling their own sinister plans.

This game has decent graphics. The combat is terrible. Everyone says its about precision but it's not about precision when your enemies attack three times faster than you swing your sword, and you can miss with your pistol even when TWO FEET AWAY. Terrible voice acting. Buy Oblivion, Skyrim, The Witcher 2, basically any other RPG than this game. If you want to get this then wait until its for sale under at least 25 dollars

Risen 3: Titan Lords is above average at best. Combat is actually good but the enemies you face are either too fast (almost teleporting) or the enemies are too difficult. The story and quests are ok. The quests need a bit more depth and the story is not very engaging. Graphics are ok. A couple of nice spots with nice visuals. It's plagued by oddly low framerates at odd moments such as the beginning of the game. Overall it's ok.
Fantastic game for the series.Ragespy | Aug. 15, 2014 | See all Ragespy's reviews »
Risen 3: Titan Lords reminds me a lot of Risen, with exploration being a feature that always grabs my attention. Risen 2 felt lacking to me, and I could never quite get into the game. So far I've put 16 hours into Risen 3: Titan Lords and I've been coming away from it rather impressed.
Pros are as follows: Pleasing Graphics The ability to swim (finally!) Hundreds of quests and some interesting characters/choices on how to complete quests or go through dialog trees. (Good guy/bad guy routes.) Enjoyable combat (Had to turn off auto-save and increase difficulty, normal was a bit too "easy" for my liking.) Interesting story elements and the ability to go to multiple lands/continents. Gnomes! You can choose to not have a companion follow you. Crafting.
Cons are as follows: Too "easy" on normal (for me at least.) A few quest markers have been kind of wonky (disappears or leads to wrong area) not a big deal, but enough to confuse me at times. Companions make the game even easier. Depending on what areas you hit up first, you're going to lose out on hunting/crafting skills, thus losing out on gold/useful items. (Could have been remedied by putting the basic trainers after the tutorial.) Though I was more ecstatic when I found them because I'd been searching for hours. Could be a pro to many, or a con to others.
