This epic role playing game is set in a medieval world on a volcanic Mediterranean island, The “Risen” story unfolds over four chapters and will offer multiple ways to develop the story.

VideoGamer.com Score:


Our Verdict: As an Xbox 360 RPG, Risen is so unpolished, so devoid of the oomph demanded of current gen games, so inaccessible and needlessly punishing, that it's offensive.
