This has got to be the worst combat I've ever seen in an RPG. Any mods to fix it?

It's one of the clunkier systems I've encountered. Even after figuring out the mechanics and being able to function with minimal rage...it was still annoying.

I only played through once as a melee user though - maybe try magic?

Sounds like you're just as bad at the game as you are at Gamefaqs.

Risen's combat is pretty unbalanced. It favors melee, particularly high-Strength builds. Melee damage is pretty much all tied to Strength.

This is one of those games where you can actually cripple your character if you don't build correctly. While the game should never technically become unbeatable, you do run the risk of doing next to nothing for damage against late-game enemies if you put your points in the wrong place.

All that said, the combat system does have a bit of a learning curve. It is a bit clunky, but it's definitely workable once you get the hang of it.

Keep on charging the enemy so long as there is life.

Gothic 3, Risen, and Risen 2 all have this really weird combat. I don't like it either.
