Default Risen 2 - First Look @ G4TV

March 25th, 2011, 22:40
G4TV has a First Look preview of Risen 2 that seems mostly based on the GDC presentation - which was a while back. There's nothing new that I noticed but here's a snip:
After the intro-movie, I got to check out a small taste of Risen 2ís gameplay. The look in Risen 2 has been improved significantly from the first game. The colors are richer and brighter and the details more highly defined. The demo level featured a pirate town, filled with makeshift pirate structures Ė Itís a bit like a more detailed, better looking version of World of Warcraftís Booty Bay Ė lots of makeshift boards piled up and I-donít-care-about-looks architecture.
More information.

Nothing really new in this article.

If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?

Risen's problem wasn't the design, it simply wasn't a very interesting game.

Lol I roughly see what you mean, but if you try think a little more about what you wrote, even you will smile.

So game aren't designed for being interesting, interesting opinion.

Perhaps, just perhaps, Risen was a bit 'chicken soup'; Risen 2 with its pirate setting should be more memorable. If they can build on the mechanics of Risen and avoid the simplification trap then, IMHO, we're in for a treat …

I'm anticipating Risen 2 far more than any Skyrim or Bioware crap, to be honest.

I'm betting skyrim will blow this away, but I am looking forward to playing this one.

I'm betting that skyrim will sell a lot more, but still be inferior to a PB game. And I do own Morrowind and Oblivion as well as gothic 1, 2 (gold) and 3 and Risen. Unlike the mass I don't like the prechewed RPG from Bethesda

so very, very tired (Star Trek XI quote according to the Simpsons)

As far as I'm concerned, only G3 is comparable to any ES title. The rest are simply beyond anything ES related. In short: I'd be surprised if Risen 2 doesn't blow Skyrim away.

I'm so glad I vent to the harbor town. I would have been pretty miserable in the monastary.

It's a strange game. First impressions wasn't that good, but once I got started I was glued to the screen. It's such a well-crafted game, so I hope they manage to keep up the quality in this sequel.
