    Review: Risen 2: Dark Waters

    Risen 2: Dark Waters is looking cheery in new screenshots

    I'll say one thing for the Risen series -- it's not afraid of a little color. The pirate-themed sequel might be violent and gritty, but at least its violent grittiness will get a tan, thanks to the bright sun and tropical col...

    Preview: What to expect from Risen 2's Treasure Isle DLC
