I was super excited for this game. On paper it reads like a great "play pirate" RPG which is what it should have been, and there are a bunch of great ideas and features here. Unfortunately, it is all executed amateurly. I admit i only played for about 3 hours, but that was all i could take. From the title screen I already got the feeling that this was a PS2 game that was rereleased for PS3. The in game animations are laughable, the dialogue is disjointed, and the fighting system is one note button mashing. There are however abilities to learn to improve combat but they cost seemingly outrageous amounts of money. I was able to learn one new ability in three hours... that is not flowing gameplay. This is why I have gamefly, if i had spent $60 on what sounded like a good game only to play this joke of an open-world rpg I would have broken something.(and pretended it was the game developers necks)

"Okay lets get this going risen two dark water is a roleplaying pirate theamed adventure which to me shouts cool pirates! but this game is for the faint of gurt heck it took me forever to get past a few sidequests because gameplay is annoying first off everything looks the same in risen two i got lost going from place to place trying find where iam supposed to go and there is a ton a ton! of backtracking the backtracking in this game made me feel like i was in a roleplaying nightmare that never seemed it wanted to end the story something to do with titans gods stolen weapons. That steelbeards crew took which awoke the kraken which means the end or does it the main character is called the hero cause you know i felt like this game needed a choose your on adventure element name your character make your choices dress him up make you like ahem jack sparrow. but you cant and the team AI in this game could of been better foir example while running threw the woods i steped on a trap which killed me to which my team member said stupid
seriously your going to stand there the games story is what saves the game even though the combat is a bore and needs improvement and like i said up in the begnning of this written review you will get lost alot end result. Yeah its ok if you like the hardcore old school rpg like neverwinter nights which this kinda reminded me of alot actually."
