MTV reviews Risen
(XBox version) and they sound angry.
The hack-and-slash combat is crucial; it's a means to progress and a key to exploration. It's also not very good. Connecting is the issue. Most enemies auto-detect melee attacks, parrying or evading 90% of the time, making the already dull all the more tedious.
It would have been nice to stay in "Risen" when I was drawn in, but all the bad design choices, from the leveling to the UI to the quests (coupled with the technical issues) obliterated my ability to be entertained. This is a bad port of an unpolished game that doesn't cater to the user in any respect. Stay away.
