Lockpicking in Risen 2 is quite elaborate although not necessarily harder compared to some other games, the mechanical graphical detail is where it shines. cptmaxons link explains the methodology pretty well.

After sussing the system on your first lock all the rest are easy, even a barrel with a tumbler set of 100 would be no harder as the same method applies, there is no dice-roll or luck factor involved in R2 kickboxing .. er, lockpicking. In R2 just one lockpick will get you through the game.

in German and self explanatory-->

A bigger lock - exactly the same and not more difficult, just takes a bit longer to open -->

In comparison, Skyrim's lockpicking shows no graphical tumbler movement at all - just the turning method of the lockpicks - suggestively, you could say that a more 'delicate' feel of the lockpick is needed in Skyrim though you might need to carry several lockpicks as they can easily break -->
