    Risen 2 was first announced as in development yesterday at GC'10. I've still not played the first but perhaps I now should.

    What did you guys think of it?

    edit

    Risen 2 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 still has no release date set.

    A sequel?

    But the first one was bad...poor acting, poor graphics, poor gameplay, and just technically, the game was not built well. Oh well...

    first one wasn't.. terrible. But I admit I found it a bit lacking.. In particular I found that I was getting confused about what tasks I had to do and often found me searching online for answers to get through lots of parts.
    Yeah yeah I know, it would be easy to flame me out here and noobify me, but seriously, I've played dozens of RPG games and never got stuck so badly like I would in this game. I mean there really was a lack of detail in terms of the map and in terms of information available..
    for instance, you would have to go and talk with some char in game, but they would not be shown on the map, nor would the character glow in game or be noticable in a way where you knew who to talk to or where to go. Pretty confusing.

    Besides that the game played well but was pretty bland. Hopefully they can improve for the second.

    Not harder, just poorly made. Sorry, but when it tells me I must find a person in a crowd of 50+ people, with no idea what to look for, and each Civvie has 50x over the same speech you CANNOT skip, something is wrong. Difficulty is fine, but that's tedious.

    I liked the first one (I love the gothic series), but it has some flaws IMO:

    -It's a hard game if you choose to be a caster
    -The last chapter was average/bad
    -The map (island) is small
    -No replayability
    -Some animations (jump) and characters were not that great

    But overall the game was really good, with this sense of exploration/finding secret areas that you can only find in gothic games.

    I second what NiukNiuk said, I played the game knowing that it was Gothic's spiritual succesor, a series that I loved.The game was not bad, but not great either, think it was meant for the Gothic fans since it followed the same gameplay/graphics/story patern. A sequel is welcome! :)

    I've never played a Gothic game, but I liked Risen a lot. I was glued to it till I beat it, which is much more than I can say for a lot of games.

    I liked Risen a lot. It got a bit weak at the end but it was a satisfying experience.

    During the press conference at the gamescom 2010 in Cologne, Germany, Deep Silver confirmed officially that Piranha Bytes and Deep Silver are currently working on "Risen 2". Daniel Oberlerchner, brand manager of Deep Silver, also reported this in our forum.

    While this is no big surprise for most people, it should discard any speculations and rumours about other projects (i.e. Gothic 5) currently developed by Piranha Bytes. The next game will definitely be a successor to Risen.

    Like Niukniuk said. It's a good game, but could have been better. If Risen2 will be as gothic2 compared to gothic, it will be awesome.

    Risen was brilliant and tbh I wouldnt compare it with Gothic too much as it felt much more polished to me and the combat felt much, much better than Gothic 3 for example.

    Would definitly recommend giving Risen a go if your looking for an RPG to play, just bear in mind it is quite a bit shorter than the rest of the Gothic series or oblivion etc
