Risen is boring. It has some positive elements like some nice vistas and some bad like the combat system but hours in the game i was tired of playing it. It never gets anywhere. Even the dialogue drags on without any of the characters saying anything i care about.
Here I write what I think about the games I have played. The score is shown as a smiley before the title of the game.
Note about Movies: None of the Youtube movies that i link to are made by me and i include them only to give you a chance to see what the game looks like. Only the text and the smiley score act as my review of the game .
