On the contrary, I'm really psyched for Risen 2 after playing the Beta.

There were a few changes that I didn't care for, but it still has that classic Piranha Bytes atmosphere.

The swordfighting has also been rendered much more controllable, with stick movements determining the direction of your slashing, so it's much easier to take on multiple enemies in Risen 2 than in the first game.
Hmm.. I didn't get that impression at all from the Beta. Melee combat seemed disappointingly simplistic, and I wasn't able to determine the direction of my attacks. Hopefully that was because it simply hadn't been implemented in the Beta, or maybe because my character needed to learn a certain skill.
