I bought the first game on the 360. It was..... okay. It had a lot of issues, but I managed to have some fun with it, but there's a LOT of better games out there. But it is only 5 dollars..... so, opinions anyone? --- To the mattresses. 3DS code: 2621-3902-1737, PSN: Justice_98405, Xbox Live: Justice98405

In terms of gameplay, it's more polished than the first one, and it has a lot of interesting concepts, like using voodoo instead of "traditional RPG magic". However, it is still pretty buggy, and the early parts of the game are incredibly boring, as you don't have anything to use against enemies other than melee weapons, and the melee combat is...functional at best. Overall if you like non-mainstream RPGs I think it's worth a shot. --- 7.3 GHz Intel i9 7770k "Hollow Tree" / 64GB TDR4 RAM / GTX Titan 5 GK330 "Daghlian" Chipset, Dodeca-SLI

For $5 yes definitely.The combat mechanics are not very good but it has some good moments and a nice and well designed world like every Piranha Bytes game.

Yes and no.
I loved both risen games but they've been cheaper than that so.. I guess if you plan on playing it right away go for it.
also risen is significantly better on PC and significantly better than risen 2. --- Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone. The armory of god is guarding me but all you can see is holographic artistry.

Honestly, I'd just buy Risen 1 again. It's only $2.50 and the PC version is so dramatically better that I'd say it's worth it. The combat system is quite good in Risen 1 as well and I have no idea how they screwed it up so bad for the sequel.
