Risen 3: Titan Lords Review – Not Quite A Titan

The Risen games have never been exceptional RPGs, and yet somehow over the years they’ve gained a small but loyal group of fans who are willing to overlook the many flaws in order to find the sense of adventure buried beneath. While the first Risen was actually kind of good, Risen 2 was poor, so can this third game get things right? Sort of.

Light Review – One Foot Still In The Shadows

Usually I like to begin reviews by talking about the game’s narrative, as I find that sets up the rest of the review nicely, providing context for just about everything else. But with Light what really needs to be tackled first are the graphics. The game is presented with a minimal style. As the player you tackle the entire game from a top-down view, with your avatar shown as a simple cube attempting to navigate a world of glowing walls and red enemy squares. Like the name implies, it’s a world made of light. As with any art-style that doesn’t conform to the norm it’s not going to be to everyone’s taste, but to me the game has a nice, simple, sleek look that’s pleasing to the eye.
