Risen 2: Dark Waters gets the Zero Punctuation treatment

Risen 2: Dark Waters gets the Zero Punctuation treatment

Tags: Risen 2: Dark Waters; Zero Punctuation

This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Risen 2: Dark Waters. It's pirate themed! With bullshit magical artifacts and grizzled eye-patch wearing mother-fuckers as your only "choice".

Combat involves hammering in nails... or at least, mashing the attack button as if you are in a game of "who will get stun-locked first".

Skills are too contextual (only appearing in dialogue options sometimes or at specific moments in combat when text appears) and skills themselves are gained by buying them off other people, which makes ZP wonder why they aren't the ones saving the world given everyone else seemingly has more skills than you do.

In the end, the verdict is seriously dodgy design with samey visuals.

Thanks Fens!
