I dunno, Risen 1 is free on VOID. Well for the time being. Better enjoy because who the hell knows what's going to happen with Gamersgate.
I really did like the pirate setting in Risen 2 though. I think it sets it apart from the other PB games and most RPGs in general. They had a good thing going with the tone and setting I just think they needed to keep this thing in development a little longer (the patch they pushed had fixes that should have been in the version that shipped), promote it better, not piss people off with the trivial crap day 1 DLC that was actually baked into the base game and so forth.
Sid Meier's Pirates is still the greatest pirate game of all time, although I have been eyeing Risen for some time because of my love for SMP.
