Balancing the kind of freedom that western RPG series (like The Elder Scrolls) are known for with a directed narrative is tough. Risen developer Piranha Bytes, best known for its long-running Gothic series, has been doing this for a long time. This latest effort skillfully walks the tightrope without the crippling bugs that Gothic has often launched with, and delivers an RPG experience worth exploring. As a castaway on an island beset by all manner of supernatural threats, players must find their own way through Risen’s hostile world. The gameplay itself is very much third-person Oblivion
