GC: Risen 2 gameplay

GC: Risen 2 gameplay

Filming an RPG on the showfloor is not an easy task, especially when it's in German. So that's why I decided to walk around the area which was available to show you how the game looks, instead of actually trying to do something.

Animations looks wonky, weird.

I never played the first one, but I will see how this one will end up.

Everything looks nice with the exception of those animations and that character model.

The character model and that slow annoying walk, run and stop animation made me annoyed to the point I dont want it anymore. The trailer gained my interest, but lost me on the gameplay at this point.

The game will be released in 2012, plenty of time to get rid of such bugs.

Yes indeedy, Molyneux would indeed be pround lol.

I have to admit that the animations do indeed look rather tame, but the game isn`t due out until some time next year so as Driftwood said, there`ll be plenty of time yet to fix things like this.

Hopefully, once your character dons some sleek armour etc, his/her stance and running/walking animations will change even more and become varied in many different ways, (dependant upon the amount of detail between materials).

Either way, I haven`t played a good RPG now for a long long time, so every fresh looking title that I see recently has me drooling.

    GriftGFX Now if you grew up on exploration/collect-a-thon platformers you probably have a hard preference for the other thing. (27 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: 2D Mario > 3D Mario. And 3D World feels like 2D Mario. That makes it feel more like a "real Mario game" to me. (28 minutes ago)

  • Megido
    Megido @Tinks: I like all the old 2D marios, and 3D world was great too. It's jsut the Mario 64 and similar ones that i don't like. The collect em up style fo gameplay is boring as shit to me :/ (1 Hour ago)
