The environments look great, but the character models really need some more work:)

It won't look perfect, but to me the designs and style of PB is just so charming, because I have many old and fond memories of Gothic 1+2 :)

HOLY GENERIC-GAME-WITH-TERRIBLE-ART-DIRECTION, BATMAN! Seriously, are they TRYING to make this game as unimaginative as possible? I feel like I've played this game a million times already...

Haha, the plot ofcourse is old, but Gothic (or now Risen) is about the characters and those were absolutely magnificent in G1+2 (or atleast in the german versions .. bad translation and VA might have killed it in english).

Second that.

The music in the trailer is as bad as I expect the game to be, but at least it is on par with the games overall look. ^^

awww, it didnt do the "risen" cheesy voice at the end *dissapointed*

at least we finally see *some* gameplay, sadly it's spoiled by the minute and a half of fly through camera work. seriously, just show the game playing.

why did Nightwish allow their song to be chopped up for this trailer?! It certainly did not fit the randomly edited scenes.

it does look poor.. but then you consider the voice cast behind it, they obviously put some money into it. Might just surprise.

I am pretty sure that if they were a larger developer, backed by a larger publisher with deep, deep pockets of the bazillions of $$$$ needed for the development of current-gen games, this game would look a lot less "generic" and a lot more like it was produced with a $20 bazillion budget.

But since it is only small time developer Piranha Bytes, and small time publisher Deep Silver, I'll just have to rely on their established track record of developing quality RPGs, plus the upcoming demo, to make my purchasing decision.

I might not have regurgitated a little if they could have at least skipped having goddamn Nightwish in there. I f***ing hate nightwish :P

Other than that the game looks pretty "meh" but i guess i could give it a try if it plays well...i'd need a demo though, cause i won't be forking out 75 wingwangs on a game that MIGHT be alright.

what's funny is that this game does graphically look pretty sub-standard. But the way they present their trailer is almost as if they have the next Gears of War/Killzone/RE to unleash

I don't think that's a valid excuse, seeing as art direction has nothing to do with money. Although I guess you could say that the best artists get the highest paying jobs, but you have to TRY(or more accurately not try) to make it this bad- And I'm not talking about the engine, as I think it looks alright...

Hmmm, can't say it looks all that exciting. It doesn't seem to have much going for it, from what little we've seen.

I'd almost call it generic, but I fear the backlash I'd unleash... :P

Nah Jato, you got that reaction before 'cuz Aliens is the franchise whos style is ripped off by everyone else, but was getting crap for being itself. This, on the otherhand is a whole different ballgame. So let yourself loose!...

@ Established92 )

some people just say things they don't enjoy are "bad", because they can't admit there are "good" things they just aren't able to appreciate

although I'm not that fond of the new songstress it's still Nightwish and Nightwish is awesome

The music was great. The world looks nice. I don't care who/what/where they copy their things, if it's a good game, I'll get it. :)

Aliens copying aliens? Just about the same as any other game copying aliens. Great ideas get copied and I don't mind.

What's funny about that? It's called marketing.

Except that they are not copying something worth copying, IMO. I can not STAND the architectural design, like everything was build by artless monkeys. There are THOUSAND year old buildings with better stonework...
