The world has been abandoned by its gods and is scarred from the rampage of the Titans. Humanity is struggling to regain strength and rally its forces. You, however, have more pressing concerns: your own life has been shattered and you must set off to reclaim what is lost amidst the darkness that is spreading throughout the world. Who knows, maybe youll even save the world at the same time? Three threads of destiny lie before you. Three ways to rise up against the Titans and regain your soul. Which path to take? The choice is yours.
You almost have to smile how persistently Piranha Bytes remain true to her game principle. Some call it stubborn, others call it constant. To make a long story short: I liked the game, very much. Once again you have to save the world, once again...
you start as a little sausage and have to work your way up. The pirate setting from part 2 was largely adopted, later it also becomes a bit medieval. For me personally the pirate setting was already in part 2 a little too much u201eArr! u201c and u201ebeim Klabautermannu201c, but I think that just the South Sea Islands look quite fantastic and convey wonderful mood. Unfortunately Risen 3 suffers from the weak fighting system in a playful way, I really liked the mechanics of Risen 1 for example. I don't think the control with the u2013 controller, for example, is great, don't be fooled by the Steam keyboard identification, it was 100% compatible with the 360. (I was always a mouse/keyboard fan, but since Witcher 3 I find the combi TV controller very fine). As for the bugs, Piranha Bytes did a good job here, unfortunately I had 1-2 crashes, but everything else went absolutely smoothly, and with sensationally short loading times u2013 in 15 seconds the thing was ready for me, cool! Oh yeah, I don't think it's a spoiler to mention that the boss fight plays itself really bad, it didn't have to be, right? But the most important thing for me at the end, that's what I like about role-playing: The game is not generated automatically, the islands are beautifully constructed, they look u201ehandgemachtu201c and are big enough to feel u201efreiu201c. At every corner there is something to find, you always want to look behind the next building, because there could be something cool hidden. Hard to explain, but for me this is the u201ePiranha Bytesu201c mood, which is always fun. Thumbs up, next: Elex!
