Description

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.

Reviews about the game

Risen 2: Dark Waters03.12.2023

[h1] ??'? ??? ???? ????? ????????? ?? ??? ??? ???? ?? ???? ????, ? ???? ??? ?? ???? ?? ? ?????? ????. [/h1] Ok, let's just cut to the chase, Risen 2: Dark Waters is actually a great game! Yes, if you're just in it for the RPG where you are a literal pirate, digging for treasure, picking locks, and using Voodoo to charm individuals to do everything you want, then this is actually it. Story first, and it's really just as generic as the first Risen game, except a bit less complicated and a bit more linear... At first I thought this nameless pirate you play as, is a different character but it turns out it's the same "monk" dude of the first game that somehow lost all his Magic powers and now can only use Voodoo instead. What's wrong with that? After meeting with the greatest pirate that ever lived, you are tasked to retrieve four artifacts to beat the Water Titan Lord, Mara, and deliver the seas from her treacherous embrace, either by siding with the Inquisition (the literal Nazis) OR with the Voodoo masters of the Shagumbi wilds (the oppressed indians). Graphically, unlike Risen (the first) that actually maintained the charm, as any Gothic game has until now (except Gothic 4 lol), Risen 2 actually did NOT age well. The textures sometimes glitch out and a normal rainy day ingame will look more like... something out of a TV with white noise... I, for a fact, know that it wasn't intentional because you can fix it with a couple of mods for all you epileptic bros out there. The RPG element of the game has you use up your Glory XP to level up your talents; Strength (which affects your melee weapons), Marksmanship (which affects your gun damage), Toughness (constitution), Cunning (which is basically your charisma) and Voodoo (MAAAGIIIC). Bear in mind that depending on which route you take, you can either max out your Marksmanship or your Voodoo... The easier path seems to be going with the Inquisition and maxing your Marksmanship, but you'll be missing out on some very humorous Voodoo Doll control interractions involving major plot antagonists, other than that, the only thing that's good about Voodoo is using Curse Dolls on bosses, which leaves them actually useless and really dumbs down the whole game... As a Magic enthusiast myself, I went with Voodoo and I was really disappointed... One dialogue did make me laugh, but that was about it. Now, why is the game so bad? Let's have a rundown of the cons: Major GAMEBREAKING bugs, and I've encountered 7 of them, YES, 7 times I had to lose the progress of over a couple of hours because I didn't follow the right order for main quests. Diseappearing items, texture bugs, sometimes your hero starts jumping around and you can't stop it and you have to load a previous save, 80% of achievements not unlocking unless you use cheats and stupidly grindy achievements that will not unlock unless you do them in a single sitting... YES, you have to kill 5000 enemies in a single sitting, OR use cheats to spawn 5000 sea devils and kill them with a bomb, which lags the crap out of your pc, talents not unlocking after buying them AND the biggest bug I've ever seen... Cooldown reduction skills actually DO NOT DO ANYTHING, yes you buy them for 2000 gold and they are ABSOLUTELY pointless, I'm sure devs had planned for them to work but they don't, and gold is freaking DIFFICULT to come by in this game so you can tell how frustrated I was to finally get that sweet cooldown reduction for my voodoo only for it to be absolutely useless. All of that leaves Risen 2 at a horrendous [b]2/10[/b] score... I loved the swordplay and the dialogue, but the bugs, at some point, killed any immersion I've previously had and the magic of this game just stopped at your second visit to Caldera.

Risen 2: Dark Waters08.12.2023

Pros: - pirate world atmosphere - MUSKETS! - world design - main protagonist charisma Cons: - this is where melee combat became tragic - many low-q sidequests - main plot less interesting than the first game - journal display of quests is not intuitive The best in series for me, mainly because of great world creation and pirate atmosphere. And voice acting in my national language (polish) is here despite other 2 Risen games, which can also adds some taste.

Risen 2: Dark Waters10.12.2023

after giving up on Risen 1 for how clunky it was, this one feels much nicer to play, that's for sure my few complaints for now is : -the fact that leaves sometimes shapeshift as you get further or closer from them, which is really stupid and unimersive. -the fact that each time you open your inventory, your camera resets in front of where your character was facing and sheath back his weapon (annoying for heals mid-fight). -falling off/jumping forces the camera downward too much and fall damage is pretty unforgiving. minor complaints : -cannot connect my controller but the controls on keyboard are decent for me to not care much. -seems to only use 2-4 threads on the CPU, which make the game run not as smooth as it could...sitting often with 40% GPU utilisation with a rtx 4060 in 1440p with an avg of 120fps...which is perfectly fine, but it could manage 240fps in certain areas if it used 8 threads (edit: in the first 3h because the 2nd and 3rd isles bring gpu usage to 60-100% for 100-160fps avg) other complaints (once game was completed) : the game has too many ups for me to tell bad stuff about it overall...brought my hopes to the series much higher than my first experience with Risen 1...which was way too clunky to enjoy EDIT AFTER COMPLETING THE GAME (NO SPOILERS)...!!edits while playing bellow!! this game is now appart of the top 1% best games i've played....of maybe 2000 games i've played in the past 19 years...this one is straight up in the top 20, no doubt.....have a look for yourself and give Jaffar some love...i will forever immortalize him by giving his name to all my companions if possible...preferably as short as possible and annoying/stupid edit after 6h : why did the game never told me CAPS LOCK was the command to sprint???!!! i've been jogging around for 6.5 hours!!! god dammit...what would have taken 5h took 1.5h more....after officially becoming a pirate and looking around a temple with 2 followers, i saw them sprint to me when exiting...and that's when i pushed some random buttons in the hope it sprints edit after 12h : like some other reviews say... the game actually evolves slowly and slowly gets you more and more interested...i am finishing the "2rd island" i'm assuming (where voodoo is learned)...........and i gotta admit, i really like the multiple double paths when exploring, it gives options instead of just 1 path with poor replayability.........i like the "artifact harpoon weapon" to have a mid range damage option, even if it's just 40dmg, it's fun to have an unlimited throw that recharges in 5 sec...i wanted to play as mage (which isn't really an option in this game) and this magic weapon combined with the fear scepter makes me feel like a mage in it, i'm glad to finally feel like how i wanted to play the game! :D...........it took me maybe 8h before i was able to have boots... which looks terrible with colored clown pants i've been using for ages edit after 22h : there's an island of the dead with a tribal warrior saying he was never beaten in battle....i don't think they thought his design well as i was just making some space, wait for him to throw a spear and throw back my own magic spear at him until he bugged inside a small building which reseted his health and then give up on cheezing him and then went with my go to strategy (push with spear and poke, rinse and repeat, but some enemies require a back roll before push poke for it to work)...........where i'm getting at is how easy he was to be dealt with...not only that but as some kind of legendary warrior who never lost, he gave me his spear which literally has nothing better than a regular spear...same damage and same value......WHAT AN ABSOLUTE CHAD...only using plain regular combat equipment and never lost in a tousand years edit 30 min after 22h review :.....my god why didn't i played 30 min more yesterday?....Jaffar is the best ally i could think of having....that is the best company i've ever had in a LOOOOONG time.........................a swearing gnome talking to the 3rd person with broken english? sing me up for more...and his name? "Jaffar"?.....* smacks lips *, Brilliant!...i really hope i can bring him anywhere for the rest of the game............also the fact the character sometimes translate what the gnome is trying to say is just hillarious...like the gnome says something overly complicated and then he's like..."oh, you mean driftwood" edit after an other 30 min:.......WOW, i LOVE THIS ISLAND WITH THE GNOMES.....they're hillarious...the mix of missing translation and stupidity is such a great execution....one of them required me to fetch him a highly valuable black pearl so he trade me a shirt for it...my character calls him that he's is a cheating b4st4rd and the gnome just goes "yip! yip!".......i bursted laughing.............as someone speaking 3 languages, translation jokes are really funny to me edit after an other 30 min:......THIS HAS TO BE THE MOST MEMORABLE TIME I'VE PASSED IN A GAME IN THE PAST 8 YEARS!!!.......i had such a great time on that island...i tip my hat off to whoever organisted this whole island..... 9/10...misses some stuff to do but heavily compensated by the gnomes and the humor....and Jaffar!, the best of mates!....he is easily the number 1 best companion i've had and i will treasure him for a LOOOONG time :D edit after 2 more hours:........i'll say it again because it's true...Jaffar is the best companion i've ever had in my gaming experience since 2004...he even throws random objects as a way to inflict damage from mid-range (example: apple, glass bottle).....and the dialogues which includes him are hillarious!....my god i'll miss him after i'm done playing the game!....but i will tell the tales of Jaffar to others in the hopes to see him into other games....................one of his best lines : uppon meeting a tribal woman "Nice rack! F-word yes!" XD............an other one who came by 1h later is when talking to some crazy person : "are you only fluent in crazy talking?", Jaffar:- "is this what Jaffar speaks?", -"no, you speak gibberish", -"i speak gibberish! F-word yes!".....HAHAHAHA edit after 30h of play time: GARCIA's "BOSS" FIGHT IS UNFAIR...he deals too much damage, his pistol deals about 70% of my hp bar and each of his sword swings are about 35%...which kills me in as little as a second.......during the fight i had 85 bladeproof and 65 bulletproof...the little sand devils in the boss room deal minimal damage, but him? oh boy, he's as strong as an ourangutan with an upgraded micro blunderbuss....IT TOOK ME 23 ATTEMPTS TO KILL HIM ON NORMAL DIFFICULTY until i was lucky enough for him to only use his pistol once, which was finally manageable to counter from start to finish......not only all that but my ghost summon was refusing to take part in the fight against the boss....and i couldn't had Jaffar at my sides
