How can there be any reviews out for this game when it hasn't even been released for private testing.

The reviews make me sad. I'll still get this, but I'll wait for a price drop.

So basically the biggest problem is the combat and the small-ish world.

It's a shame. I liked the combat of Gothic 2, even if it was a little weird. It was challenging at least, blocking at the right time, back-stepping etc. It kept you alert. Sounds like the combat is just dull in this.

Even gothic 2 didn't aggregate above an 80%, but we all know it's one of the best games of all time.

These games aren't really designed for the broad gaming audience.

People who played risen 1 for pc and liked it, will like this. Period.

It's true the deck seems to be stacked against PB games, but those reviews seem remarkably consistent.

What worries me is the combat being boring. I loved the combat in Risen. It sounds like its simple and easy in this game?

NO, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH STATING AN OPINION WITHOUT LABELING IT AS SUCH. WHERE DID YOU PEOPLE GET THIS IDEA?

I guess I'll have to see for myself. I remember getting owned early on in Risen because some combat aspects were difficult for a low level character. Combat at least kept you on your toes.

All the reviews for part 2 make it sound like that is no longer the case.
