Ahoy!!! me hearties!! Tis I elderly beneath this rather fetchin pirate suit...itchy.. but fetchin  :) For what  I hears ya say is I dressed in such apparel... arrr!!! tis a good question... Well shiver me timbers, this like this...(cough...splutter..)

....I can't keep this up.... so here's the gen on Risen 2 Dark Waters.  Erm...the  popcorn will be here shortly once Alf finishes his costume preparations....

Risen 2: Dark Waters is a Caribean pirate themed single player action rpg.

Released for Microsoft Windows April 2012, and due on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 3rd August 2012.

The monsters from the deep you encountered in the first title have pushed humanity to the brink of existence. Rumours suggest the pirates of the Southern Islands know a way to stop this terror. Now a member of the Inquisition,  you are sent out to end the chaos.

You play the nameless hero from the first game, starting with a basic stat sheet and an automatic levelling system you must earn and spend experience points to develop your skills.  Risen 2 steers away from the "faction" element of it's predecessor to attempt a more focussed storyline and it's now got guns instead of the old crossbows.

Unfortunately the Windows version got a mixed reception with Metacritic awarding a 69% from 51 critic reviews.

Greetings dear Bickle :)
Played the first title, but didn't like been shoved into a bandits faction at the very start of the game, and I remember leveling up and fighting was a learning curve too steep for me.

May wait until comes in at the "affordable" level, though still haven't graduated to online purchases and my local game stores have a bit of a pricing monopoly going...

Currently replaying the Mass Effect series with all the DLC content I was too miserly to pickup at the time...

Now let me treat you to some virtual beluga caviar I've been meaning to try out.....

Alf!!!!
