You should post your specs.

The Witcher 2 is a frighteningly well optimized game, Risen 2 is not. But like the other guy said we are going to need to know your system specs.

I run Witcher 2 on ultra (ubersampling off) and Risen 2 on the highest settings (except shadows on high instead of ultra). Both games have about the same performance, Witcher 2 probably slightly worse.

lol no, witcher 2 looks a hundred times better and runs at 45-60fps maxed out on my sli 460/i7-950 3.7 processor at 1080p where this game runs like garbage barely maintaining 30fps and drops into the low 20's in the jungles with terrible pop-in, texture flickering, and all kinds of jank to go with it.

Laptop i7-Q720 HD5870 50-60 steady with no drops just from going into the jungle. Taking the time to play around with your drivers and configuration goes a long way.

What do you mean "lol no"? I never said Witcher 2 looked worse, only that the two games run similarly on my PC. Just because you're having trouble doesn't mean everyone is.

The reason is the sli. Risen 2 is just bad at sli. It might even run better if you only used one of the cards :p.
Anyways, with the xml files edit to make the game prettier, the game runs at the same fps as the witcher 2 on my pc at 1080p all settings maxed out (except ubber sampling on TW2). Risen does run at a higher FPS (just by a bit) with the standard ultra settings, than TW2 though.
Still, this doesn't mean that the equivalency between those games is still valid at low settings. Sometimes it doesn't scale as well (both ways). The only way to tell is with the system specs, but it seems OP isn't coming back, so really there isn't a point to this... right? ^^
