Like Gothic? Love Risen!

Well, Risen is finally out, and, according to the reviews, is looking like the next Gothic (but with a different world and without those annoying copyright issues!) As CrispyGamer says, ‘Risen is a solid game that religiously follows the design of the Gothic series. It would even be fair to say that the game is a wholesale rip-off of JoWooD’s RPG under another name. But who cares?’

Who cares indeed?  Like Gothic, combat is a killer and good luck surviving to the mid-game, but this is what a lot of people, including myself, want in a game – challenge!  Also have a look at the College News site for another great review, or look at the official blog itself, which also includes a link to the demo.

If you want, you get get Risen from Amazon Like Gothic? Love Risen!.  Finally, here is the trailer.  Enjoy!!!
