    One of the most difficult budget-related decisions they were facing was whether to make only one female model, like Elex 1, but make it attractive this time or make 2-3 ugly ones. I guess they went with the latter.

    Elex didn't do owt for me. It was OK, but from an RPG stance I found it quite dull tbh. My fave PB games, Gothic 2 & Risen 2, contain way more humour and spice than Elex did.

    Here's hoping they spice this up a bit too.

    You didn't like the lack of a proper character sheet and attributes that did absolutely nothing?

    I doubt it because, from the looks of it, Piranha Bytes has increased the amount of women in the team, which is decline.

    Well, Risen series had downward trajectory, but I still enjoyed all three to certain extent. My worry is that Elex started on a lower note, as it was nowhere near as good as R1 in my book.

    • Because you are now more agile in the air, there is also pure air combat against other flying opponents. So Jax can fight gargoyles at a height of 20 meters.

    Pretty much my opinion about this game. Hopefully the sequel will have better melee combat.

    R1 have the best melee combat in a game for sure,hard to beat it on that aspect. But elex have top tier exploration,that jetpack is clear evolution of the PB formula. Shame that the loot wasn't that good.

    nah ELEX was better than risen.

    risen's saving grace was it's melee combat against humanoid actually feels like a duel ,but in term of world design and the fact ELEX doesn't fall apart 50% into the game makes it better.

    ELEX fall apart about 80% in instead of 50%

    Disagree,both worlds are really good. ELEX for scifi fans and Risen for fantasy fans.
