Über das Spiel

Viele grausame Jahre sind vergangen, seit die Götter die Welt verlassen haben und die Titanen aus ihren Gefängnissen aufgestiegen sind. Unaufhaltsam verwüsten sie alles, was sich ihnen in den Weg stellt.

An der Südspitze des alten Reichs befindet sich aber ein Ort, der vor den Titanen noch sicher zu sein scheint. Die in Caldera errichtete „Kristallfestung“, Hauptquartier der Inquisition und Zuflucht der Menschen, wird immer wieder von Seemonstern attackiert, Versorgungsschiffe werden versenkt. Niemand weiß, wie lange die die Mauern noch standhalten, aber Nahrungsmittel und Waffen werden langsam knapp.

Die letzten Überlebenden der Menschheit kämpfen nun verzweifelt um ihre Existenz, haben aber ohne Waffen kaum eine Chance den Seemonstern Herr zu werden.

Der namenlose Held, gezeichnet von den Geschehnissen auf Faranga, ertränkt derzeit in der Hafenstadt Caldera seine Erlebnisse in Rum. Nachdem sich die Lage durch die Knappheit an Nahrung immer mehr zuspitzt, begibt er sich auf den Weg, dem Treiben der Seemonster ein für alle Male ein Ende zu bereiten.

Während seiner von Abenteuern gespickten Reise trifft er nicht nur auf große neue Herausforderungen sondern auch auf alte Bekannte, die sich nicht immer als hilfreich zur Bewältigung der bevorstehenden Abenteuer herausstellen.

Viele Jahre nach dem Ende von Risen haben die unaufhaltsamen Titanen die Welt verwüstet und die Menschheit an den Rand der Vernichtung getrieben. Auch aus den Tiefen der Meere erhoben sich die monströsen Kreaturen und brachten die florierende Seefahrt zu einem abrupten Ende. Der Held, nunmehr ein Jünger der Inquisition, wurde ausgesandt, um den Kreaturen aus der Tiefe Einhalt zu gebieten. Seine Reise beginnt bei den Piraten auf den südlichen Inseln, die Gerüchten zufolge von einer Möglichkeit wissen sollen, wie man sich der Kreaturen entledigen und ihre Herrschaft des Terrors ein für alle Mal beenden könne.

Risen 2: Dark Waters kombiniert die altbewährten Rollenspielmechaniken des Vorgängers Risen mit einem komplett neuen Piratenthema, angesiedelt in einer detail- und variantenreichen Inselwelt. Als ein aus der Third-Person-Ansicht gespieltes Rollenspiel mit düsterem und schmutzigem Setting, bewahrt Risen 2: Dark Waters die markantesten Charakterzüge des Originals und versetzt den Spieler dabei mit seinen verschiedenen Herangehensweisen für jede Mission in die Lage, die Welt mit seinen Taten zu verändern. Die Entscheidungen des Spielers eröffnen ihm neue Handlungsstränge und ermöglichen dem Charakter das Erlangen neuer Eigenschaften sowie zusätzlicher Fähigkeiten. Zusammen mit der hoch interaktiven Umwelt und einem durchgängigen Tag-Nacht-Wechsel, der diverse Aspekte des Spielablaufs beeinflusst, erschafft Risen 2 die lebendigste Spielwelt, die es je gegeben hat.

Ein Klassiker der auch nach über 200 Spielstunden nicht Langweilig wird !
Es gibt immer in der Offenen Welt etwas neues zu entdecken und neue anspruchsvollere Gegner.
Das Kampfsystem ist einfach gehalten bietet dennoch Spaß und lässt sich mit kleinen Fähigkeiten Verbessern.
Die Dialoge sind immer Zweiseitig Vertont und gut Gesprochen. Das Spiel läuft immer flüssig und ist bisher noch nie abgestürzt.

Great game!! I like the evolution from Risen 1 to a Pirate theme and the idea of the old Empire being destroyed to exploring new found worlds (islands).

The mages are banished and the world has evolved to using pistols and muskets. By exploring new worlds players will come acroos voodoo magic which they may learn. I tried the voodoo curse dolls which really weaken even powerful enemies and the scepter of power which provokes an enemy to attack another.

The game gives you the chance to evolve skills such as attacking with blades or firearms and to implement even dirty tricks to beat your opponents such as using sand to blind them.

All in all a great rpg with a lot of exploration, grave robbing and treasure seeking.

Decent Action RPG from Piranha Bytes. I liked first Risen better but this was good fun as well. Won't be replaying it though.

- length cca 30 hours
- good story and characters
- multiple areas, different bioms
- less choices in combat, magic is mostly gone (Voodoo is weird and weak)
- muskets are fun
- decent graphics
- didn't encounter any bugs
- Patty is gorgeous and funny

If you liked Risen and are interested in the story, then definitely play this.

Rating 7/10.

I like this game. Main character is cool and your companion Patty always have some nippy commentary. Game mechanics are ok, it take some time to get used to it. Main story is good, but game it selft feels really simplyfied by console mechanics. Game forces you to max your thieving which can be frustrating because you will want to max you sword or firearms. Dont even bother with voodoo, it is booring and totally uninteresting.

I have to say I did not like this game when it first came out. I was terribly disappointed with it. It didn't feel like the original Gothic-inspired RISEN and it looked ugly and ran like crap. But on a whim - I recently reinstalled it and played it again and it's a TOTALLY different experience. They must have optimized it because it looks FANTASTIC (for it's time 2012) and runs smoothly and beautifully with no glitches or bugs. I'm having a great time with it 7 years after it's release. It almost feels like a re-mastered version compared to what I remember - maybe it's just my PC is so much better now than the one I had in 2012? I don't know - but I am really enjoying my recent play through. Lots of depth and interesting things to do - seems much more like Gothic game now than I remember and that's a good thing. (One CAVEAT: this game allows you to sell quest items you may need to complete the game. I sold a quest item (a diamond) early on in the game only to discover 40 hours later that I needed it to complete. Although the game allows you to buyback anything you've sold previously - good luck remember which character you sold it to. I never did find it and had to abandon my play through without being able to finish it.)

Graphically, this is much better than Risen, the controls are still dodgy and the combat is still not great.
Character progression is very slow, voice acting for the main character is dull.
Load times are atrocious - my GX501 takes ages even with NVME SSD
Don't waste your time.

Skip this one unless you are a die hard PB fan.

The combat is worse than ever. Combat is never PB's strong point, sadly it plagues them even to this day in their new games. But this game is a giant turd.

All the joy i had with risen 1 got sucked out of me instantly.

Piranha Bytes makes good RPG's the risen franchise is no different. While they got rid of some of the mechanics from the previous game it feels more piratey. If you like the Gothic series or Elex then give these games a try. Btw first game is the best in my opinion.

I really enjoyed the first risen and despite what others tend to think about this one, I really like it. I think I actually enjoyed this game more than the first one in some ways. At first I hated the sword play in comparison to the first one but by the end of the game it had really grown on me. There were a lot of big quality of life improvements overall and it was just enjoyable. It took me about 10 less hours to finish this game than the first-28 hours, doing probably 85% of the quests and taking my time, compared to about 36-40 hours on the first one with me rushing through (because I had finished it before). That being said, this game doesn't tend to drag on like the last half of the first game did so I don't mind that it was a bit shorter. The two factions you can join really change up how you can play the game too so I look forward to having a future playthrough after I finish Risen 3. If you can come to terms with the fact that it's a pirate RPG and moves away from the tone of the first Risen, it's a really solid RPG with really good writing and supporting characters. Really worth picking up.

Эта игра-нечто. Только что прошел вслепую и, скорее всего пропустил часть контента, но не могу не высказаться.
Первое, что можно сказать, эта игра вызывает сильнейший эмоциональный отклик. Я не большой фанат пиратского сеттинга, но, признаюсь, теперь мне будет интересно поискать литературу по этой тематике.
Боевка достаточно интересна, история шикарна, некоторые сюжетные повороты предсказуемы, другие достаточно неожиданны. Множество разнообразных отсылок, мое почтение сценаристам. Персонажи проработаны просто чудесно, один гном-матершинник по харизме утрет нос любому персонажу игр беседки.
Мое мнение может не совпадать с мнением большинства, но хотя бы попытаться поиграть в этот шедевр я рекомендую всем

Honestly can't recommend buying the game. It's extremely dumped down and simplified cRPG with pirate theme painted on top. While I enjoy pirate games in general, pirate theme extends only to looks and dialog in this game and you don't blunder ships or raid towns like real pirate should. If you remove the theme, what's left would be extremely simple and generic RPG.

Combat is extremely simplified and you don't even start with basic moves like parry or kick. Even after learning all the possible moves, combat remains extremely simplistic. It only gets easier and less frustrating as you progress. If side with the inquisition and get guns, game becomes cake walk. Even end boss fell in couple minutes under my constant musket barrage.

Sailing in game involves you telling where you want to go followed by cinematic you leaving port and arriving to next port. There is no ship to ship combat, boarding other vessels or blundering settlements (you know, the things pirates usually do). It's just a travel system between locations.

Things you get to do as pirate captain is ferrying food or booze to random NPC, helping damsel acquire materials for new dress and other such fetch quests helping people in distress like every pirate captain ever, being heroic defender of the people, saving the world and all. Isn't that how they describe pirates in the history books? ;-p

Only thing joining a factions really does is decide what skills you can learn and what equipment you can acquire. It basically boils down choosing between muskets or voodoo magic and their relevant skill sets. Once you join a faction, opposing faction members are bit rude to you or may threaten you but otherwise don't interfere with your progress. You get crew member from faction you joined and some quest are only available to member of the faction but mostly you simply complete them differently depending of the faction. Story line is same regardless. You simply accomplish same goal bit differently. Natives (voodoo) are the more original faction allowing more creative ways to accomplish tasks but perks they offer are also weaker IMHO. As I said before, muskets simply make the game a cake walk. That's just how overpowered they are.

Game suffers from multiple issues including but not limited to:

  • Game crashes every few hours. It just suddenly closes unexpectedly.
  • Objects popping up is jarring without a mod to fix it at least to a level it's not jarring.
  • There are lot of small flickering issues with shadows, lightning, objects and textures.
  • Storms are extremely annoying as lightning flashes every few seconds (seriously). I simply slept thru every storm in the game. I'm not epileptic but the constant flashes made me woozy.
  • I had number of camera issues in tight spaces making some fights unnecessarily difficult as had to constantly keep adjusting camera in middle of combat.
  • Followers tend to get stuck in terrain and suffer from some weird issues (I've seem them fly for example).
  • At some point there start to be issues with dialog. There are clearly missing lines in the dialog or devs did not make sure all dialog runs properly no matter what order you do things. Got confused lot of times on what NPC's were talking about. There were even cases where they discussed events that had not yet happened like Garcia being dealt with when I had not even met the guy. Devs obviously did not test the triggers enough considering you can do most of the game in order you wish.
  • Number of achievements are bugged and unachievable without cheating. Simply put, the progress on those achievements is not saved between sessions and if you close the game for any reason, your progress on the achievement is wiped. You'd have to accomplish them in one session (some of which require at least 2 playthtrus like earning 300000 gold or kill 2000 monsters).

I personally think Risen 2 is one of...wait no, it's the best installment of Risen franchise! The writing of the story is great, the dialogue is great! Even though they used the same face models for many npc, but they have their characters on their dialogue, if that makes sense. Overall it much better than the first one although the combat is weaker in Risen 2. So I give it 8/10

But for notes, this one isn't that optimized like the first one. So you have to tweak the game a little, you can search it on steam's guideline or just browse it on the internet.

A good pirate-y adventure. Hits all the right notes: sailing the high seas, sea witches, curses, voodoo, booty, a one-eyed protagonist, and your health potions are grog and rum. It's a direct sequel of the first Risen, so it -might- behoove you to play through that first... if you've got 40 hours to spare. (That itself ain't a bad game. A solid 7/10, but it is rather clunky.) But if you just want to jump into good old pirate-y fun, then sure. Risen 2's adventure is pretty self-contained, but some details and events and characters from the previous game will seep through. Just know that you saved the world in the last game, you're a little washed up now, but now you're going to save the world again with your kickass pirate (girl-)friend.

The combat's a little difficult at first, but once start upgrading your skills and learn to keep moving it becomes easier. Hang on to Patty as long as you can to soak up that XP on the first island.

Arrr!

[h1] Information / Review English [/h1]

Risen 2: Dark Waters is a classic role-playing game developed by the Gothic creators of Piranha Bytes.

[h1] Gameplay / Story [/h1]

While you have defeated the fire titan in the predecessor, other titans devastate the mainland. The king is dead and humanity is on the verge of extinction. Like magic, magicians were banished from the realm and scattered to the winds. Only the caldera, a small enclave protected by a crystal deposit, remains on the mainland. The Inquisition is rapidly losing power in the empire and is sending expeditions to the newly discovered world to rebuild civilization there. However, Mara, a titan lord and hybrid of octopus and human woman, makes the seas a dangerous place and sinks one ship after the other with the help of a giant octopus. You yourself are stationed in Caldera. After losing his right eye in the fight against the Fire Titan, the hero's only occupation is to empty rum bottles.

One night a ship ran aground on the Caldera coast. The only survivor is Patty, who has still not given up on the search for her father's treasure, Captain Steel Beard. She meets the hero and tells him about the legendary magical titan weapons that can kill Mara. Your father Stahlbart owns one of them. The player character receives the order from the commander Calderas to get these weapons immediately and to kill Mara. After he and Patty met Captain Stahlbart on Takarigua and was accepted into his crew, he drives to the Sword Coast, where the first artifact, the titan harpoon, is in the possession of the pirate captain Crow. This is how your adventure begins ...

[h1] Combat system [/h1]

Risen 2: Dark Waters offers you a revised combat system for Risen, with new animations making the fights even more varied.

[h1] Pro [/h1]

+ large game world with a lot of scope
+ Parliamentary groups to choose from
+ Treasure hunts
+ Companions have more to say and don't just stand there
+ beautiful landscapes
+ Music and sound are appropriate
+ sometimes funny dialogues
+ sometimes it feels like Gothic
+ Fights are challenging
+ Achievements and trading cards

[h1] Contra [/h1]

- Speech could be better
- to find few armors in the course of the game
- the opponent's AI is terrible at times

[h1] Conclusion [/h1]

Risen 2: Dark Waters is an underrated RPG in a wonderful game world with a lot of freedom. Each individual island is a very pleasant change from the extreme land masses of standardized AAA titles. Here the player still has that unique Gothic touch. The story, humor, dialogue and characters all have rough edges and are not as overly smoothed out as in practically every big budget title today.


[h1] Information / Review Deutsch [/h1]

Risen 2: Dark Waters ist ein klassisches Rollenspiel, welches von den Gothic-Schöpfern von Piranha Bytes entwickelt.

[h1] Gameplay / Geschichte [/h1]

Während man den Feuertitan im Vorgänger besiegt hat, verwüsten andere Titanen das Festland. Der König ist tot und die Menschheit steht am Rande ihrer Auslöschung. Die Magier wurden ebenso wie die Magie aus dem Reich verbannt und haben sich in alle Winde zerstreut. Lediglich Caldera, eine kleine, durch ein Kristallvorkommen geschützte Enklave, ist noch auf dem Festland übrig. Die Inquisition verliert im Reich rapide an Macht und schickt Expeditionen in die neu entdeckte Welt, um dort die Zivilisation neu aufzubauen. Mara, ein Titanenlord und Mischwesen aus Krake und Menschenfrau, macht jedoch die Meere zu einem gefährlichen Ort und versenkt mit Hilfe eines Riesenkraken ein Schiff nach dem anderen. Man selbst ist in Caldera stationiert. Nachdem er sein rechtes Auge im Kampf gegen den Feuertitan verloren hat, ist es die einzige Beschäftigung des Helden, Rumflaschen zu leeren.

Eines Nachts strandet ein Schiff an der Küste Calderas. Die einzige Überlebende ist Patty, die die Suche nach dem Schatz ihres Vaters, Kapitän Stahlbart, noch immer nicht aufgegeben hat. Sie trifft den Helden und erzählt ihm von den legendären magischen Titanenwaffen, die Mara töten können. Ihr Vater Stahlbart besitzt selbst eine davon. Vom Kommandanten Calderas erhält der Spielercharakter den Auftrag, diese Waffen umgehend zu besorgen und Mara zu töten. Nachdem er zusammen mit Patty Kapitän Stahlbart auf Takarigua getroffen hat und in dessen Crew aufgenommen wurde, fährt er zur Schwertküste, wo das erste Artefakt, die Titanenharpune, im Besitz des Piratenkapitäns Crow ist. So mit beginnt dein Abenteuer..

[h1] Kampfsystem [/h1]

Risen 2: Dark Waters bietet dir ein überarbeitetes Kampfsystem zu Risen, mit neuen Animationen gestaltet die Kämpfe noch abwechslungsreicher.

[h1] Pro [/h1]

+ große Spielwelt mit viel Umfang
+ Fraktionen zur Auswahl
+ Schatzsuchen
+ Gefährten haben mehr zu sagen und stehen nicht nur da
+ wunderschöne Landschaften
+ Musik und Ton ist passend
+ manchmal witzige Dialoge
+ teilweise fühlt es sich wie Gothic an
+ Kämpfe sind herausfordernd
+ Errungenschaften und Trading Cards

[h1] Kontra [/h1]

- Sprachausgabe könnte besser sein
- wenige Rüstungen im Laufe des Spiels zu finden
- die KI des Gegners ist manchmal schrecklich

[h1] Fazit [/h1]

Risen 2: Dark Waters ist ein unterschätztes RPG in einer wunderbaren Spielwelt mit vielen Freiheiten. Jede einzelne Insel, ist eine sehr angenehme Abwechslung zu den extremen Landmassen standardisierter AAA-Titel. Hier hat der Spieler noch diesen einzigartigen Gothic-Touch. Story, Humor, Dialoge und Charaktere haben allesamt Ecken und Kanten und sind nicht so übertrieben glattgebügelt, wie in praktisch jedem heutigen Big Budget-Titel.

tl;dr
Oldschool Action RPG. Pirates. Wonderul ambiente/atmosphere. Atmosphere makes up for the very bad combat system, but still pretty unbalanced.
Achievements partially bugged, cheatmode necessary for 100%.

Story
Risen 2’s story continues Risen 1’s story although it is not too bad if you have skipped that one. The plot is not too surprising but still entertaining.

Gameplay
This is the bad part.
While the inventory/menu system is a great improvement from earlier times, you have to be used to PB’s games. There are some categories, but it still feels messy.
Fighting is a pain. A shame they still did not find out how to create a working fighting system for their 5th game. Enemies hit you although you see them missing. Unfortunately, this is also one of PB’s trademarks.
When I lost a fight and died, most of the time it was because of bad hitboxes or controls not reacting (or reacting twice like hitting 3 times when pressing the button only twice).
Sometimes you cannot enter a room while sneaking, like there is an invisible barrier. If you stop sneaking, you can enter it without problems.


Looks
The game is old, but it already looked „not that new“ when it was released. Maybe that’s a PB’s trademark, I’m not sure.
The animations (while talking) are very clumsy and repetitive. Especially Patty while talking. She continues the same movements again and again. If you know PB’s games, you won’t be surprised by that. The ambiente, atmosphere and music totally makes up for that.


Achievements
It’s a pity the achievements are partially bugged. It that wasn’t the case, this RPG would be one of my favorites. Like it’s now, the fact that you need to cheat/exploit to unlock broken achievements, is pretty annoying.
Phil made a great https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=179681304" target="_blank">guide about Risen 2’s achievements and how you can unlock them all.

Pros
  • great atmosphere
  • world gives a nice pirate feeling
  • story is entertaining although not too innovative


Cons
  • combat system is a catastrophe
  • unbalanced fractions (playing Inquisition is a lot easier than Natives)
  • bugged achievements
  • looked already old when it was released


Conclusion
It is hard to tell if you should try Risen 2 or not.
I am one of the people who still enjoyed this game because of the world creation. Although it is not very polished, it gives a great pirate feeling.
As always with PB’s games, the combat system is the game’s greatest failure. If you side with the Inquisition and learn more about pistols, you will have an easier time.
Ignore Voodoo. Casting takes too long most of the time, so you will get hit (and therefore interrupted). Besides that, there aren’t any really fun AND useful skills. Making an enemy attack the other sounds great but it takes a while until you’ll be able to do so and it also won’t work on every enemy.

Best way to enjoy the game is NOT siding with the natives and focus on thieve skills. Stealing and lockpicking is pretty satisfying once you have a high skill.
When I have played the first time, I have sided with the natives because they are more interesting, but I have regretted it whenever I had a more difficult fight.

I see many reviewers unhappy with the combat system, but I like it. This game is an RPG, not an action RPG. Hit chance is governed by your character stats, not the eye-hand coordination of the player, so that makes me happy :D.

Cute game full of tropes; it's not dark or serious, it's a fun adventure!

Compared to Risen 1, this game is better in terms of graphics, exploration, and controls. The factions are somewhat worse because one is better for late game but makes you too overpowered, while the other one offers a lot of interesting abilities for roleplaying purposes but doesn't help you much near the end.

The pirate theme does not indicate that this is truly a pirate RPG. Sure, there are treasure hunts and parrots, but you only dress like a pirate and use the ship to travel between islands. No ship-to-ship combat, no boarding parties, no ship customization. All the fighting is still on land much like the first game.

Risen 1 was set on a single island where you started out with nothing and had to fight for scraps until you get powerful gear. In Risen 2, you pretty much have a better start and you already have a companion early on to make combat easier. There is still a sense of progression until midgame, but it gets sooo easy once you choose that one, powerful faction. Exploring the different islands in search for legendary loot is one of the best parts of the game.

Combat is the same, mediocre hit-and-dodge system. Ranged weapons are so much better compared to the first game, even though melee still plays a huge part in most situations. Blocking is half as effective because there are no shields, so parrying is the way to go. Pickpocketing is easier but uses a less interesting mechanic than Risen 1. You can finish the game easily without Alchemy, so don't bother with that. A new mechanic called Voodoo is unique but very situational.

There are funny moments and NPC interactions just like Risen 1 which you may either like, tolerate, or hate depending on your fondness for the protagonist's dry humor. A few familiar characters returned but most of them are just forgettable.

Overall, Risen 2 improved upon the graphical shortcomings of its predecessor, but some gameplay elements got slightly worse or stayed the same. It's still a classic Eurojank game with the right amount of length (30-40 hrs), some funny voice lines, and awkward cutscenes. If you liked Risen 1 and the Gothic games, give this one a try.

7/10

It's not worth your time.

I was intrigued by the pirate themes in this RPG, especially with how rarely this theme is done compared to the constant sword and sorcery clones that release every week. The idea of sailing around tropical islands and using black powder weapons sounded exciting.

While the game was entertaining to an extent, it wasn't very good. The combat is frustratingly bad- you either get your ass handed to you in melee combat because enemies fight through your hits or you can cheese every fighting by maxing out firearms skills. I enjoy open world games, and appreciated the size of the islands. Big enough to feel immersive, without being filled with nonsensical filler quests. However, towns fall flat as the biggest one in the game consists of 4 houses. The rest of the game is filled with typical ARPG gameplay. It overs nothing special and the story is very forgettable, so not really worth your time in 2020.

Deep RP system. Check
Large Open handcrafted world. Check
Memorable NPCs, many of whom look exactly alike. Check
Nice and detailed quests. Check
Deeply satisfying and Bad Combat Mechanics. Check
You will get slaughtered in early game. Check
+ much better UI than most PB games.

Verdict: This is not Gothic but it comes close..
For a price less than 1$, it is a crime to not recommend this.

I like the story and world, but man the combat mechanics are the worst. jump, roll, and kick are all the same button, plus its just super clunky already. not to mention the loot usually feels underwhelming and sometime just doesn't auto save for long sections where you cannot save manually, like when you voodoo for the first time.

Si te gusta explorar este juego podría gustarte. Pero no esperes más que eso, el sistema de combate está poco pulido, además de que tiene varios bugs.
If u are an explorer this game could be fun.

Uninspired story. Dull and repetitive combat and some of the mechanics don't work properly (e.g. kicking is useless and doesn't work most of the time). Game also keeps crashing; make sure you save often

A really, really great game. After playing Elex and Risen 1 I was craving for more PB RPGs so I bought the remaining Risen games and so far I'm really impressed with this one. It is more lighthearted then the first one, it has more humour, the pirate theme is really well done and it is more accessible (this may be a con for some of you), the voice acting is great. The combat system is OK, I can't see why people don't like it (it is easy to understand, but has some depth) and the story is again great. This is really an amazing game that was way too hated when released and I can't see why.
All in all Risen 2 is an amazing follow up to the first one that has an unique theme, great story, decent combat and good art style.
