    The pirate theme permeates through the game in more than just setting and story. In Risen 1, you could join one of three factions. Depending on what faction you joined, everything from your perspective on the story and the world down to little things like the user interface changed. In fact, to see all of the game's content, you would have to play the game to completion three times. Piranha Bytes is hoping to fix a lot of that with Risen 2.
    Aside from that being a massive exaggeration of the extent factions changed the game (the major changes stopped after chapter 1), are they really trying to say that multiple questlines based on faction choices are a bad thing?

    Seriously. Of all the reviews I read of Risen 1, not a single one mentioned a branching path as a negative.

    I don't know. I kinda get annoyed when I can't get everything in one play.
