I ended up buying it. So far, I would say the combat is a slight improvement over Risen 2, but still not as good as Risen 1 or Gothic 1/2. Unfortunately, you can still pause the game during combat (or use the quickbar), so you aren't forced to get good at the game to survive like in Gothic 1/2. It's too early to tell if the game uses a companion 90% of the time again. Hopefully not. Also not happy to see guns (muskets especially) are still in the game. I'll figure out later if they're still as unbalanced as they were in Risen 2.

The tutorial was really sloppy, but it's not so bad now that it's over.


To me, the combat is pretty good compared to Risen 2. Sword fights are fun with multiple enemies now (to me at least). It's much more smooth and collision detection (I think that's the word) is much better. Also, the combat seem to remind me of Witcher 2 in terms of letting you dodge roll to evade enemy attacks most of the time. I end up doing the same combat strategy from Witcher 2. Dodge roll and wait for an opening to attack.

Also, from what I can tell, companions are back, but you have the option to run solo if you wanted. So far, I like having them as they always seem to have something to say when you enter or discover something new.


Yeah, I'm glad that jamming on the attack button doesn't put enemies on lockdown anymore.

so from what ive seen and read: "if you like average run of the mill RPGs, you will like RIsen 3".

If you like looting and pirates chances are you will like this game

Jim Sterling did a review on it. As someone who liked the first two games, he was not a fan of this one. As someone who got tired of Risen 2 15 minutes in, I expect it's not a game for me.

One day, when I am too old for adventuring, I will settle down and open up a little armor shop called, "Victorious Secret."

Well duh, as if IGN ever made reviews with any semblance of credibility in them.
