It's on a Steam sale for about two more hours.

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?

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.

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.

No. God no.

The combat is so bad. SO BAD.

While the rest of the game is ok it's not enough to make up for the combat which makes up most of the game.
Shooting blanks, every time, all the time.

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.

Warband, is that single-player, from the pics it looks very multi-player.
