Über das Spiel

Risen – der neue Rollenspiel-Hit der legendären Gothic-Erfinder Piranha Bytes!

Mysteriöse Erdbeben, furchterregende Monster und unvorstellbare Schätze – die Insel Faranga braucht einen neuen Helden – Dich! Kämpfe dir deinen Weg mit dem Schwert frei, lerne die Kunst des Stabkampfes oder werde zum mächtigen Magier – in der Welt von Risen hat jede einzelne deiner Entscheidungen und Aktionen Konsequenzen für den weiteren Spielverlauf. Schlage dich auf die Seite einer Fraktion oder bewältigen als Einzelkämpfer die riesige Anzahl an Quests, um hinter das Geheimnis von Faranga zu kommen. Fertige deine eigenen Waffen und braue seltene Tränke, die dir im Kampf gegen deine Feinde helfen werden.

Die Insel Faranga erwartet dich!
Der Himmel verdunkelt sich und der Wind reißt an den Läden der Fenster. Die Menschen verschanzen sich in ihren Häusern. Ein Sturm zieht auf, den die Welt noch nicht gesehen hat. Die Erde erzittert und uralte Tempel erheben sich. Mit ihnen bahnen sich unbekannte Wesen ihren Weg an die Oberfläche. Windhosen und Taifune toben über dem Meer, Feuerstürme wüten auf dem Land und tausende Leben fallen den Mächten aus längst vergangenen Tagen zum Opfer. Eine dunkle Zeit ist angebrochen, und die Hoffnung schwindet mit jeder Stunde, denn die Götter haben die Welt verlassen. Die Menschen sind auf sich allein gestellt, als die Dunkle Welle über sie hereinbricht…

Nur wenige Enklaven der Menschheit sind bisher vom Unheil verschont geblieben. Die Vulkaninsel, auf der du als Schiffbrüchiger angespült wirst, ist eine davon. Denn eine unbekannte Macht scheint das Eiland vor dem Schlimmsten zu bewahren. Ihr Schutz wird jedoch schwächer...
Wirst du einen Weg finden, ihren Untergang zu verhindern? Und was hat es mit den Tempeln und den fremden Mächten auf sich? Wirst du dich der strengen Inquisition anschließen und als Ordenskrieger das Geheimnis der Tempel lüften oder gehst du zu den rebellischen Banditen, die sich in den Sumpf zurückgezogen haben? Vielleicht wirst du auch versuchen, dich den Magiern in der Vulkanfestung anzuschließen, um in die Geheimnisse der Magie eingeweiht zu werden...

Die epische Geschichte in einer authentischen Welt ohne Barrieren bietet dir nahezu unbegrenzte Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten.
Die lebendige Welt von Risen hält dir alle Freiheiten und Möglichkeiten offen. Fast jede Situation kannst du auf verschiedene Arten lösen. In diesem Rollenspiel-Abenteuer erwarten dich sowohl neue Freunde als auch bösartige Kreaturen, verborgene Schätze und Reichtum, gefährliche Fallen und Rätsel sowie unerwartete Wendungen, Legenden und Geheimnisse. Es liegt in deiner Hand, welchen Weg du einschlägst und wie du das Schicksal der Insel und ihrer Bewohner verändern wirst. Die Insel liegt vor dir. Das Abenteuer erwartet dich...

Mit Gothic konnte ich leider nie so richtig etwas anfangen, aber das erste Risen fand ich super. Eine schöne kompakte Welt mit drei Hauptorten (Lager, Stadt, Kloster) und trotzdem gab es viel zu entdecken. Die Story war okay, wurde aber am Schluss etwas seltsam. Trotzdem habe ich das Spiel einfach gefeiert. Sehr gutes RPG. Klare Empfehlung.

Ein gelungenes Rollenspiel was für mich das beste der Reihe ist. Warum, weil viel Gothic in dem ersten Teil vom Risen steckt. Drei Fraktionen, eine in sich geschloßene Welt(Insel), Einteilung in mehrere Kapitel, derbe Sprache und eine hohe Questdichte. Teil 2 und 3 schaffen es atmosphärisch nicht an Teil 1 heran. Auch vom Gameplay der beste Teil. Habe es mehr als einmal durch gespielt. Die Story die in 4 Kapitel unterteilt ist verliert leider mit Fortschritt an Questdiche. Trotzdem bietet das Spiel viele Stunden Spielspaß und lohnt sich auch wieder zu spielen. Es war damals schon kein technisches Meisterwerk und nach all den Jahres ist es das auch heute nicht. Aber die Atmosphäre, die Story und die verschiedenen Fraktionen machen das mehr als weg. Dieses Spiel lohnt sich auch heute noch, klare Kaufempfehlung! Leider erreichten seine beiden Nachfolger nicht das Level des ersten Teils.

Ob im Jahr 2020 noch ein 3D Rollenspiel aus dem Jahr 2009 gut spielbar sein könnte, hatte ich stark bezweifelt. Zu viele Innovationen gab es auf dem Spielemarkt und die Technik hat sich zu stark weiterentwickelt.

Dennoch war ich von Risen stark überrascht. Das erste Kapitel hat mich richtig in seinen Bann gezogen. Irgendwie fühlte ich mich an meine Kindheit erinnert, wie ich damals Gothic spielte. Sau stark!!! Der größte Unterschied war hier nur, dass man nur zwei statt drei Fraktionen hatte. Aber ansonsten fühlte sich die kleine Spielwelt toll an.
5/5

Das zweite Kapitel eröffnete dann neue Gebietsabschnitte und fügte ein Haufen Charaktere und Quests hinzu. Leider merkte man jetzt auch immer mehr, dass das Spiel nicht gut ausbalanciert ist und immer noch einige Bugs hat. Leider zog der Schwierigkeitsgrad kräftig an, weshalb ich auf einfach schalten musste. Trotzdem war ich sehr gut unterhalten.
4/5

Das dritte Kapitel war dann nicht mehr so toll. Die Bugs häuften sich und als Kämpfer wurde es immer frustrierender. Irgendwie scheinen die Gegner alle Angriffe zu Blocken. Leider habe ich das Kampfsystem bis zum Ende nicht geschnallt. Auf Youtube konnte ich aber sehen, wie Magier und Fernkämpfer viel weniger Probleme hatten. Da ich aber nicht bei der Magierfraktion war, konnte ich nicht wirklich zaubern. Allgemein war das dritte Kapitel recht schwach.
3/5

Das letzte und vierte Kapitel bot noch einmal drei schöne Höhlen zum knobeln aber auch viel zu viele Gegner. Leider waren die Gegner mittlerweile so stark, dass ich den Gott Modus aktivieren musste. Ansonsten wäre ich nach drei Treffern tot gewesen. Ich glaube ich hatte schon 15 Jahre nicht mehr gecheatet. Der Endgegner war dann einfach nur noch nervig. Doof vor allem, da dieser scheinbar nur mit einer Axt zu besiegen ist und ich Schwerter auf Level 10 geskillt hatte.
2/5

Meine Empfehlung: Erzwingt V-Synch im Grafikkartentreiber, da man sonst oft in der Gegend festhängt. Spielt nur die ersten beiden Kapitel und schaut dann eine Zusammenfassung auf Youtube an und spielt auf jeden Fall einen Magier. Insgesamt war es aber eine schöne Erfahrung. Traut euch…

3/5

Nette Story, Kämpfe zu Anfang sehr herausfordernd. Da mehrere Fraktionen auch interessant für erneutes spielen. Die Grafik ist etwas veraltet aber ich finde sie OK, läuft vor allem auch auf einem nicht High-End PC flüssig. Leider nicht Bug frei, aber die Ladevorgänge beim Schnellspeicher- und Laden sind erträglich (SSD).

Dieses Spiel saugt mich ein wie kein anderes Spiel. Ich genieße, dass freies Erkunden und Questen gleich viel Spaß machen und ähnlich viel Ertrag bringen. Das Kampfsystem ist gelungen und ist aufregend. Das Charaktersystem genau richtig, nicht zu viel & nicht zu wenig. Das Gothic-Gefühl ist da mit besserer Grafik und besserem Alles. Sie haben ihre Fehler korrigiert. Sogar in 2021 immer noch ein Genuss. Das Spiel ist eine Reise in eine andere Welt.

Risen ist für mich die natürliche Entwicklung die die Gothic-Reihe einschlagen musste. Ein neues knackiges Kampfsystem hübscher Grafik und eine Story über die von den Göttern verlassene Welt.
Bin bis heute auch der Meinung das dass Kampfsystem allein ein ganzes Spiel tragen könnte und verstehe von dem her auch nicht warum es nie wieder Verwendung gefunden hat.
Hoffe mal das die Jungs/ Mädels von Piranha Bytes sich für ihr nächstes Projekt zumindest etwas an Risen orientieren.

Gothic 1/2 Spirit gut umgesetzt, dennoch eins der super wenigen Games bei welchem ich empfehlen würde es NICHT durchzuspielen, die ersten 1,5-2 der 4 Kapitel sind enorm gut und typisch Piranha Bytes mäßig sympathisch und immersiv aufgebaut, aber danach beginnen mehrere nervige Fetch Quests in Folge die die allgemeine Spielerfahrung enorm runterziehen - die ersten 20 Stunden Vulkanfestung -> Hafenstadt waren jedoch enorm gut und haben mir große Hoffnung gemacht, hört einfach auf sobald ihr nur noch über die Insel reisen müsst um Sachen zu sammeln und ihr habt ein gemütliches RPG für Gothic-Fans. Durch die Schwächen am Ende leider nur eine 7/10, aber die ersten 2/3 sind es wirklich wert

My favourite game of all time. The atmosphere, the game design, the story. All of it is great. There are the occasional glitches and bugs but no more than most games. The controls might seem a bit janky to new players but it is easy to get use to. The combat is pretty good in my opinion. It is a relatively old game so watch your expectations in this respect. There is quite a lot of content and things to do and you have a fair amount of freedom to choose your own path down the story. Overall this game is a 10/10, five star, 100% would recommend.


...in my opinion.

Ticks the Piranha Bytes boxes:
* handcrafted world to explore
* believable npcs and quests where your decisions affect outcomes
* challenging in a good way most of the time
* weapon specialization, alchemy, smithing, hunting, thieving and magic to choose from when building your character

As a bonus, this time we get actually good voice acting in English with some big names as well.

Misses some things:
* enemy attacks suffer from lack of telegraphing and randomness, resulting in feeling like you were cheated out of wins on occasion
* lack of target lock in combat causes irritating switching in the middle of a combo
* story pacing in mid-game is a bit too quick and light on detail

Risen is a down-to-earth, charming, and lovingly-crafted little RPG. There's a staggering amount of attention to detail in the way the game world operates, giving you ample reason to immerse yourself and play by its rules. This one's a slow burner - you have to put in some time and effort to earn that elusive reward and climb up the social hierarchy. For example, learning how to become a mage requires that you actually study the art back at the monastery, making friends with the students there to improve faster. After all of this hard work, you're rewarded with the ability to create and use magic, allowing you to do things like shape-shift, levitate, and use offensive spells.

You'll occasionally be asked to do things you might not want to in order to get connected with those in positions of power. You can't always afford to take the moral high ground in this brutal and occasionally cruel world - survival often takes precedence, leading you to sacrifice some friendships in order to form others. This all works together to make Risen feel like a real world, making every little impact you make that much more meaningful.

It's also got a rich and evocative soundtrack that transforms all of the above into a beautiful canvas. There's a lot to love here, if you give it the time of day!

Make sure you grab the Risen Mod Starter for patches and tweaks to make life better, and cap your fps at 90 or below to avoid problems with the engine.

In my humble opinion best part of Risen series. Main story didn't blow me away but it's pretty solid. There are two factions you can join. Some quest will differ depending which side you pick but final chapter will be the same. You can develop your hero to be pure mage, warrior of the order (capable of staff fighting and casting spells), ranger (bow/crossbow) or fighter (wielding 1 handed or 2 handed axes/swords/maces). Leveling up reminds Gothic series - you need exp, proper trainer and gold to pay for your training. Risen world seems to be a little smaller than what we saw in Gothic series but it's full of side quests, dangerous caves and temples filled with treasures, and other places of interest.
The biggest flaws are technical matters. There are lots of bugs and errors (2 sidequests didn't work for me), animations are clumsy and graphics doesn't look too good. At least controls are better than it used to be in Gothic series...
Overall it's really good game. Sure, it's not Skyrim but it's nice open world aRPG you can play if you don't have +200 hours to play Bethesda blockbuster :P

Risen is a great RPG, but definitely a Eurojank game; if you've played Pyranha Bytes' other games (namely, Gothic), you might understand what you're in for. A large number of crafting systems, factions, roleplaying options and a well-realised open world, combined with questionable controls, some shoddy animations and bugs, and pretty poor combat. It's a classic combo, and Risen pulls it off fairly well. I've finished this game three times between Xbox 360 and PC, and found it pretty addictive over each playthrough.

Risen has no level-scaling and enemies do not respawn. It means that you can go to early areas later on and massacre weaker enemies, whilst you can eventually bully weaker NPCs if you're the type. It isn't Elder Scrolls where bandits are equipped with end-game equipment or thrash your max-level HP with a rusty sword. This is a good thing in RPGs, gives Risen a great sense of progression, especially when you remember you literally start with rags and clubs.

Some people have ripped on the game's voice acting, but I don't agree. The game has some genuinely great voice acting, including well-regarded actors such as John Rhys-Davies (LotR) and Lena Headey (GoT). It's a huge step-up from the English dubbing of Gothic. The player character is voiced which may put some off, but he has his own character whose perpetual dry wit and sarcasm does rub off nicely sometimes. There's a decent amount of funny dialogue actually. There are a limited number of VAs, and so eventually some lines will sound phoned in, but that occurs in larger AA and AAA games anyway.

Get this game if you like games with a real sense of progression. The game is easily strongest in the early-mid game because you feel like there's always something to be doing. You're always learning new ways to make money, improve your equipment and make the combat go faster. It slows down in the end-game once you have maxed-out equipment and things get a bit repetitive with the main quest, so keep that in mind.

For an older game (2009ish), Risen supports at least up-to 2560 x 1440p and refresh rates up to 144Hz which is nice. Be warned that falling physics can be buggy at 100+fps, however; turning on Vsync in the GPU control panel can correct this (or just lock it to 60). The PC port is much less buggy than the console port, but you may occasionally get visual bugs like ground textures failing to load (just restart the game).

If you get this game, a word of warning is that it's very rough at the start. Like wild animals can easily murder you if you aren't careful, so it's wise to get a bunch of your early XP from doing social quests in towns and odd jobs. It's the best way to work out who you're interested in faction wise anyway.

First of all, i'm using modern hardware with 64-bit Windows 10 and i didn't run any problems when launching and playing the game, so i never experienced a compatibility problem.

As gameplay: Yes it has flawed combat controls. Yes it has a painful start and it's hard enough. Yes, the movement speed is slow enough. Don't buy the game if you expect to play it like an Elder Scrolls title. It has similar difficulty as Gothic series. I'm pretty sure that gameplay gets easier when you get better gear and skills. But until then, prepare yourself to load your last save game... a lot!

The problem isn't difficulty or combat. The game itself is meant to be played like that. The real problem is, it has horrible gamebreaking bugs. Yes, not just one. Sadly, i just quit and i don't plan to play sequels of the game. At least, not in near future because the first game left a bitter taste.

I decided to quit when everything started to kill me in one-hit. I mean, every enemy. It's most probably a glitch plagued my save game.

So sad. I really wanted to experience and finish the game.

The early game is very punishing because of the clunky movements. Once you learn how to dodge, block, and parry, you're going to be alright. Be careful of exploring too far, you might end up fighting monsters that are way beyond your level.

The middle game gets interesting. Once you get better armor and weapons, you can start exploring the island to find some loot. Always prioritize your skill points on the weapon mastery of your choice. Sneak and pickpocket are very valuable if you want easy solutions for most NPC quests. Alchemy makes you even more powerful late game. Smithing isn't really needed, but you can make some useful trinkets and it's a nice place to dump those extra skill points.

Late game becomes ridiculously easy. All you have to do is dodge and time your power attacks carefully, and all enemies can be easily defeated. The dungeon levels were more of a nuisance than a challenge, some puzzles are very obvious while others are not. The boss fight was very underwhelming because at this point, you have already boosted your stats to max level.

The story's pacing and the character progression feels just right. Exploring the surface of the island is fun especially during the first two chapters, while the areas below the island are not fun at all. Pickpocketing is unique and quite fun compared to other games. The dialogue is mostly bland with some dry humor every now and then, but at least your character can talk. As with all Piranha Bytes games, this one has so many bugs so make sure to save your game often.

Overall, this game is worth the time. 8/10

[h1] A timeless classic for any RPG fan! [/h1]

33 hours and one [spoiler] titan, inquisator, and gyger [/spoiler] later. i can say that this is one of those timeless classical RPG games.

A word of warning though, before you jump neck deep into the game, go into your INI files and lock your fps to 60, the game doesn't handle higher framerates very well and will cause game breaking bugs when trying to climb up ledges or falling. it takes about 2 minutes to sort and thats including the time taken searching for the guide on the workshop!

I wish Steam reviews could be a bit more nuanced in this case, because while I can recommend the game in total and feel a thumbs down is too harsh, I do not think it was a very good game altogether.

Nice: Intricately designed high-fantasy world, weapons and armor diverse, combat system good. Not too difficult, not too easy. Piranha Bytes RPGs have a reputation of being not the easiest to beat, but Risen was easier than e.g. Divinity 2 in my opinion. Voiced main character (I'm not the biggest fan of silent protagonists). Graphics are solid - this game definitely aged better than some of its contemporaries.
Meh: Characters stink. Again, this is also up to personal preferences - but I did not like any of them much. I guess they just exist. The story was not very engaging, thrilling or particularly well-written; it was average at best.

Sadly, I couldn't get myself to play past the 70% finish because I found the game in its entirety not thrilling enough to be continued - now, I am a huge fan of any open-world RPG and Risen is enjoyable enough just for the core gameplay elements I enjoy so much about them, but the plot, world and characters just didn't do it for me. I will nevertheless recommend this game to anyone out there who wants to give it a try - as mentioned, Risen is a thoroughly average fantasy game.

I understand and support all of the good as well as bad reviews alike and recommend getting this if you got a lot of enjoyment out of the Gothic series OR are a big RPG enthusiast like me and just wanna have them all played at some point.

Highly recommended, especially if you're a fan of the Gothic series. One of the few RPGs that really encourages and rewards exploration. A few tips to new players:

- A shield will block attacks from animals
- Collect and eat all the apples you can get your hands on
- Pay attention to dialogue and flavor text
- Force A.A and Vertical Sync through your graphics card control panel
- Don't bother with the sequels

I loved the amount of freedom you are given to explore the bandit's camp as well as harbor's town. The melee battle mechanics are a bit cluncky but I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would - However, if I had to do it all over again I'd do it as a mage. This one's the first release of 3 risen games which I think has aged well (for RPG enthusiasts, at least) - So...this game is really a bit buggy but overall a great game!

So glad to have stumbled on this gem. This is a challenging but fun RPG. Unlike so many new RPGs that have enemies that level in-line with the player (super lame), Risen has a true scale. This is the best of the classic model, like Morrowind but with 100% audible character dialogue.

Highly recommend this game! If you liked the Gothic series (especially Gothic 1) you will definitely enjoy Risen 1 as well. For a game from 2009 it has still quite nice graphic if we are speaking about sceneries and not the characters (nameless hero looks like potato). Sound is amazing and the voice actors did a pretty good job (especially Lena Headey ♡)
It has a rich story and decent Island to be explored. For me 8.5 / 10

Risen is a beautiful RPG from the authors of Ghotic serie, it takes back all the fashion of the previous games but eliminates all the crashes that afflicted those games and add a beautiful new graphic style, the plot is very immersive and entertaining, the combat system, altough different from Ghotic is nice and enjoyable once you start mastering it, very recommended.

My Final Score is

[h1] 80% /100 [/h1]

Risen is a masterpiece of late 2000's combat RPGs.

The story is (but not always) catered towards what build you are going for (You'll join the Inquisition to be a combat mage, join the Mages to be a mage, Bandits to be a bowman ect) but you can also (if you want to) stray from the conventional path if you know what you're doing.

Risen rewards players who understand the mechanics behind the game, for instance I didn't think I'd need alchemy as a warrior type however learning alchemy allowed me to use potions to permanently increase my strength more than levelling up could ever do.

Highly recommend it.

Nice game! But before you start, fix the ledge climbing bug here Also, check first comments for additional animation speed up fix if needed.
DO NOT eat plants that add +1 permanently. Later you will be able to do potions and make it +5 instead of +1. For example, health perma potion adds +10 HP.
DO NOT eat Hero`s crown, it`s also an ingredient for permanent potions.
EAT APPLES!!!

This game may not be remembered as well as say other rpgs from the Xbox 360 era, but it has been one that has been stuck in my mind since 2009 and my first outing on the 360. The world design is first and foremost the best thing about this game, as is the skill system similar in vein to Gothic. The game can be a tad difficult, especially as how enemies don't scale to you akin to say Morrowind. If you do plan on playing this game in 2020 and beyond, I advise modding it and installing the games unofficial patch, and texture pack. As a side note, make sure you limit the fps to the game to 60fps, it has no built in cap by default and it leads to climbing objects being broken. Besides that, I highly recommend it.

Well worth playing, brought it when it came out for Windows, first rpg i brought. When I saw it on Steam, I got it again just to complete my library collection. Nice relaxing game, lots to explore. Magic and Alchemy good,Combat
skills have a lot to offer. A shield is a must, combat good when fighting single opponents, a bit dodgy when being attacked by lots, but manageable. The player is meant to explore, lots, and I mean LOTS of areas and secrets just waiting to be found. I played hundreds of hours on the cd version, and I still haven't unlocked all the cheevos. Worth buying if all you want to do is chill out with no time constrained missions. I have nothing negative to say about it.

You will die, all the time and everything will kill you.
You'll laugh.... You'll cry...You'll think you can beat certain things after 1000 times of dying and changing your strategy. In the end you'll learn that you either have to get good or learn how to laugh off how easy it is for you to be bodied.
Just remember to save and create new saves if you dont like how a certain thing played out.(i didnt do this because I didnt know you could)
Either way I highly recommend it!!! A lot of fun, incredible story, decent music and nice art work. Combat is meh still fun though cause its ridiculous.

It might be generic in its atmosphere and themes, but developer Piranha Bytes knows how to make you feel like a badass after completing countless side quests to earn experience and completely obliterate enemies that would give you so much trouble early game. That and the interesting magic spells save this game from being another average fantasy RPG.

An atmospheric A-Rpg which tries to revive the greatness of Gothic 1 and 2.
The beginning of the game achieve on every mark, but the game suffers from a short lifespan and lightweight amount of content (spells, items, quests).

A big warning on the technical side: there are multiple bugs that will cause crash and possibly graphic card over heating.
Be sure to install community patch 1.3 before launching the game.
And set your ingame refresh rate the same as your screen refresh rate
Also, if you're using a Nvidia graphic card (which is a good thing for this game), in Nvidia Control Panel activate FXAA.

Risen is a good open world role-playing game in its own way.

You start as a nobody with no special skills who can get killed easily by common wild animals. Getting stronger and being able to successfully fight against stronger enemies is a process that goes on throughout the whole game and is very satisfying.

I would describe the combat system as classic - You can strike, parry and dodge at the beginning. Later you will be able to vary your attacks and to combine them with your parry. Combat success is mostly based on your timing and on knowing how to deal with different kinds of enemies.

Even if the world is not that big, it is full of things to discover and to do - There is more emphasis put on depth instead of size. The game is strongly based on a great amount of different side quests ranging from simple collection quests to complex crime investigations where you have to think to finish the quest. Often there are different ways to get a quest done and fighting is of course not neglected in many quests too.

The main story is interesting, even if it takes a while to get its flow. Depending on how many side quests you do and how much you explore the open world by yourself, you can expect a playing time of up to 60 hours before you finish the game.

The dialogues throughout the game are pithy. In some situations you can choose brazen but funny dialogue options making the dialogues a great pleasure...

The graphics are nice and the developers increased the visuals further by the lighting and beautiful colourisation dependent on the daytime, making the game very atmospheric without sacrificing the attempt to look realistic.

I experienced no bugs most of the time, but in the second chapter, a bug started to occur known as climbing bug. If you want to climb in a dungeon and this bug occurs, your character disappears and you can't do anything anymore. This happens not everytime and if so, you can work around it. Therefore I would not call it a game breaking bug, but it is disturbing and it seems to occur more often on modern computer systems.

Without spoiling - What bothered me most was the main quest given in the last chapter before the ending. This was just the same kind of quest you already did in another chapter some time ago. It just felt unnecessary, repetitive and destroyed the story flow which intensified just before.

However, all in all I can recommend this game. It is a good different experience in this genre.

This game might be my soul mate because I hated it at first, but then fell in love with it the more time we spent together. It was a big pain in a** at first, the combat was very hard to master and quests weren't easy to complete. You had to think a bit and exercise patience. But it was kind of worth it in the end.

Great atmosphere (immersion), music, story, but the graphics need some help crossing the street. Overall it was a pretty good single player RPG. Give it a shot if you like a challenge.

Risen is a very interesting game.

From a technical standpoint it is terrible. I had constant errors and glitches (like disappearing while climbing a ledge), but that happened only sometimes. The graphics are okay for the time and so are the physics.

The story is pretty great though, especially the first two chapters are some of the best pieces of writing, world-building and plot interconnection that I have ever seen. Sadly, the open and intertwined nature of the first two chapters bears little fruit in the end as in the grand scheme of things your choices in the main plot do not really matter (however you can influence nearly every side plot). Together with this the last chapters just becomes a slog of a dungeon crawler, which sends you to retrieve 5 pieces of something across the island (though fast-travel thankfully exists later on) but this last chapter lacks any character of the previous ones and the ending is very anti climactic in my opinion. The voice acting is pretty nice though.

The combat is just janky. This is why the last chapter is so terrible because it heavily relies on you fighting the same enemies over and over, which makes the whole thing a slog, even If you liked the beginning and the middle of the game. The lizards are just way too aggressive and don't allow you to attack them properly without overpowering them. Magic works, but bows and crossbows, I don't recommend using those as your primary weapons.

The music is nice, it really feels like every place in the game has its own ambience and music, which makes the experience that much more interesting (barring the music in the last two acts because they take place in caves nearly all the time).

So what does this mean for the game? Is it just straight up bad? Why did I enjoy it despite all of its flaws?

It's because of those first two chapters, the world-building, the choices and options, the dialogue and humour....the world, pretty much. The game has obviously hand crafted locations and the world feels alive like no other because of this. The NPCs have their own routines, opinions, favourite places to hang out and such, which makes it just shocking how modern games don't utilise their settings in this way.

Had the game not crashed and glitched as often as it did I would have given it an 8 out of 10, but it's a 7. It has many flaws, but the majority of the time I enjoyed playing it.

I bought this game one or two years ago, and then it sat in my library, like most games I own. I finally picked it up, after getting bored of most of my games and realising I should finish some games I haven't yet. I figured this game would be fairly small, but I was wrong. There is a lot of stuff to do on this compact island, with new creatures showing up to keep things interesting. Most characters you meet are different enough that you can almost recognise them by name after one conversation. It is a compact game, that will make every area you visit have at least one, if not two or three interesting things about it.

It is not easy at first. It took me a little while to realise that the game soft locks you into certain areas of progression. If you do not follow the path, the game will kill you very quickly. It doesn't take too long to open up though, and you can always find a way to cheese most enemies as well. If you are well versed in drawn out combats and you learn the system quickly, you can still defeat any enemy you come across with time and patience.

Minor Spoilers Ahead:

I only found a couple collision glitches in my 36 hours so far, having just beaten the game. First, a couple times I would fall, either down a pit trap or over a lava pool, and I wouldn't fall all the way down. Just float in midair. Second, Spike traps can sometimes be a nuisance, even with magic. Small hint, you can find answers anywhere online just about, but my main problem is that I didn't think outside the box enough with some spells before checking Google.

A few hints:
Carry a bow with you, even if you're using magic. You do not need a ton of arrows.
Don't be afraid to stock up on Learning Points. Once you get past the first chapter area, you can start getting a decent amount of gold to get new skills.
Get a shield. Early game they are so important I cannot stress it enough. However, some enemies attacks don't register on the shield.
Check the character menu and make sure you know what combat you want to take. If you are anything like me and care most about the story, you won't get enough gold and learning points to fully level up all of them, or even two of the styles. Pick carefully.

I believe that is all I have to say for now. I would probably call this game a 8/10 considering it came out 12 years ago and they didn't focus as hard on making the individual NPC models different as much as making a compelling story, compelling and interesting characters, and fun game mechanics. (Then again, I would also say 10/10 cause I spent a couple nights spending too much time trying to progress, even though it was very late for me).

If you loved the GOTHIC series - you will love RISEN as it's just more of the same. I wasn't too impressed with RISEN 2 and RISEN 3 - but the original RISEN is right up my alley. Don't expect to be led around from quest marker to quest marker - this is kind of old school; you have to figure out a lot of things for yourself. Combat is unfortunately clunky - it seems like your enemies are able to strike you a dozen times for every hit you give them so invest in strong armor and a shield. It gets more tolerable as you get stronger and can do more one or two hit kills. The story is deep, the characters have depth and the game world is fleshed out. Graphics haven't really aged well but it's still fun to explore the environments even if character faces are a bit hard to look at. This is classic fantasy computer role-playing with a slight pirate twist so expect to encounter pirates and fishmongers along with mages, ogres, gnomes and walking skeletons. The magic system is detailed and fun (runes, crystals, scrolls) and I got a kick out of the staff fighting aspects. Again - I highly recommend if you like the original classic GOTHIC series.

If you can look past the technical hiccoughs here and there youl´ll be rewarded with a rough fantasy-world that shines with interesting and believable lore, aswell as a captivating atmosphere achieved through great sounddesign and a graphical style that, while lacking a bit polish, is consistent and never tries to be more than it is.

This is one of the most immersive RPGs I have ever played. Incredibly underrated. The atmosphere is incredible despite the old graphics. The Don's camp is one of my favorite locations with a very intimate atmosphere. The music goes well with complimenting the environment, and is nice to the ear. Combat becomes very rewarding once you figure out how it works, though it's slightly clunky with melee, but nothing you can't get use to. Very much like the old Gothic games. The world has an interesting lore to it that will satisfy any explorer willing to discover its secrets. 8/10. Unforgettable RPG in my mind.

Great older RPG fun story line I wanted to finish this game so badly when I only had a potato computer that I actually had to get the game on consul which involved me having to borrow one since for some reason I could only find Dark waters on PlayStation and Titan Lords on Xbox but it's definitely worth the investment but there is a glitch on jumping that can be fixed by changing your vertical sync setting I put my on adaptive half refresh and it fixed the problem perfectly.

Никогда и не за что не играйте за милишника - у вас будет просто непрерывно подгорать начиная с середины игры.
Ваш выбор для комфортного прохождения это дальний бой - либо маг либо боец с луком/арбалетом. Маг предпочтительнее т.к. потребуется куча заклинаний, а у него будет с этим всё хорошо.

Если оценивать игру по главам:
Первая часть - 9 из 10.
Вторая - 8 из 10.
Третья - 7 из 10.
Четвертая - 5 из 10.

Всё начинается очень здорово - атмосфера на месте, качественные беседы с НПС на месте, сюжет на месте, разные фракции на месте, интересные квесты.
В конце гринд и тоска - игру искусственно затянули. Собери этого 5 штук, потом того 5 штук. Куча мобов по пути, которых валить в ближнем бою долго и тоскливо.

Why tf every npc in this game so damn rude. like damn! I just did you a huge a$$ favour risking my life and all my precious potions and after its all said and done, if I just simply look at their way, they would get mad and ready to murder me on the spot and steal all my loot. Like damn bro, really?

I like how they improved this game with new and better mechanics from their latest made games, but it still has the atmosphere of the game we could definitely feel in Gothic games. It feels more buggy than their previous games, but it is nothing cruel to be mentioned further. Some aspects can be similar to Gothic, but it is still not really visible at all.

Risen 2 and Risen 3 are much different from this game which could be reason of you not liking them, but give it a go if you want to continue the story after this one.

Traditional RPG in the same vain of the gothic games, with really good rpg elements. Takes around 40-45h to finish. And around 100h if you want to complete all achievements in game.

Pros:
Amazing roleplaying elements
Lots of skills for melee and ranged class
There's in game achievements
Good graphics for such an old game
Good soundtrack
Decent map system (needs a tutorial to make players aware of quest traquer)

Cons:
The game crashed around 6 times, this means black screen and having to sign out from windows
There's no steam achievements which is strange since it has in game achievements
Difficulty curve mid game can quite insane
Tons of traps that kill you in one hit
Game requires quite a lot of save scumming
Less spells than in the gothic games
End boss has to be fought in the same way no matter your class

A solid 8/10, definitely worth playing for anyone who likes videogames that have adventure and rpg elements

Better than most AAA crappy games that came out after. This game is an old hidden gem. Absolutely in my top 15 games.
