I liked the setting and general idea of the first one, but the gameplay really turned me off. Shoot underpowered spell at monster, slash slash, leap back, repeat ad nauseum. Can anyone tell me if they've improved it at all?
If you didn't like the combat in Risen, odds are you're not going to like it in Risen 2 either.

Risen 2 is all about the setting and atmosphere. It's even better than the first game in those aspects. If you like the whole islands/beaches/pirates thing then you'll like Risen 2. It gave me a strong "Pirates of the Caribbean" vibe but with a more serious tone.

It also has much higher production values than any previous Piranha Bytes game. The cinematics and voice acting are excellent, and the characters are generally well written. I thought it was the best crpg released last year.
