Brief Risen Review
Overall a fun enjoyable experience of anywhere from 40-70 hours. Early and mid game is a blast exploring, questing, engaging with NPCs. The games later chapters are a bit weak but don't detract from the full experience.

The class/skill/exp design is solid enough. There's the slight possibility to butcher yourself in skill distribution making combat extremely punishing but these early-game obstacles can be "corrected" partly as you go on. The overall character progression is satisfying and the various but few combat styles are all fun and unique.

The story is engaging enough as a whole but interaction with the NPCs and NPCs with themselves is what drives the immersion and breaths life into the experience.
