I'll say the ONE thing that makes this game so bad: bugs. Freezing, glitching and frame skips happen on a consistent basis.
However, if their is a possibility for updates to solve these problems then WOW what a game. Think Assassins Creed Black Flag, but with more RPG and historical accuracy. I actually find myself learning about things during the pirate era. This game could have been tough competition for Skyrim, the amount of space you can explore, the endless items and quests make this game epic. If any of you can put up with the glitches, then realize that this game is only about 5$. Just use your gamefly coupon to buy it, give it a second chance and pray for an update.
bad cut scenes,bad graphics,bad playing style ,pirates of the carribean meets skyrim, should have been good was not ,,,it sucks ,,sucks sucks some more and sucked..play this game or stare at the wall give me the wall

"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."
