Not that it really matters, because none of them had any large degree of linearity anyways.
In Gothic 2 the beginning is pretty straight forward where you go to the city doing a few things on the way. The beginning of Gothic 3 you are thrown into a battle with orcs in a village where you can't leave until it is done. In both you have far more direction then in Risen where you are put on the beach and can go where you want without much direction. With that it is much easier to get your bearings in Gothic 2 & 3 then in Risen.

PS. A good example of this is the first time I started Risen I accidentally went to far and got killed by some wolves at the beginning which never happened in Gothic 2 or 3.
