Some say the combat was clunky, but again, I enjoyed it for what it was; a different take on a combat system. Overall it was a really fun game that I hope to finish sometime, just got sidetracked by Reckoning. Looking forward to Risen 2 for sure.
The US XBox version included fixes and optimizations which weren't patched into the Euro release, for whatever reason. It's possible Deep Silver secretly included them in later reprints, but at least not officially.
So a lot of complaints are from people who played the Euro version.
