Still, it looks really nice though.
With several games being delayed and me not thinking of getting any console titles this holiday, I have room for Risen.

I am deciding between Steam and retail... the only store that seems to have it on their website for order on the right day and with normal shipping is Gamestop. Fancy that. Never even bought anything there before.

Looks like engine is poorly optimized

Reading stuff on german forums and stuff it's apparently better optimized than Gothic 3 so there's nowhere near as much stuttering when streaming the world and while max details are demanding you can easily get smooth frame rates if you just drop the details a bit. Also nobody is complaining about bugs yet which is a very good sign.

I'd consider this maybe after hearing some thorough reviews. Considering how buggy Gothic 3 was and how it took huge patches to improve it, I'm thinking I'll wait unless I hear it's really polished and good.

I loved Gothic 3 despite the bugs. I am so getting this when it is available. Also, damn the 5870 is killing the competition in those benchmarks. That's insane.

This looks like a very nice game. But wow... that GPU-test, seems to be a demanding game.

From the above article:

"ATI owners who want to simulate RISEN with GPU-accelerated PhysX can always run Prime95 in the background."
