Is Risen worth playing in the dawn of newer games like Borderlands and Dragon Age?

Kind of ironic since I bought both games in the last two days. I haven't played Risen, but I totally recommend Dragon Age. It's the best game I've bought in a long time.

Dragon Age Origins is most definitely worth playing, it's a great rpg with an immersive storyline.
Risen, well, it's a decent rpg. I mean the story's ok, the graphics are really nice but personally I didn't like the fact there's one and only one ending to the game (and one that kinda sucks btw), and although I finished it, I'm fairly certain I'll never play it again, whereas I usually like to replay some RPGs over and over in my spare time.
As for Borderlands, I haven't tried it yet so...

I think I'll buy first Dragon Age and if there's some spare then try to grab Risen.

If you like rpg's, you will surely like Risen
The graphics and controls are a little like Oblivion, but it's much harder. Also, the dialogues are actually pretty good and sometimes kind of funny

Borderlands > Dragon Age > Risen (if you want to play with friends)
Dragon Age > Risen > Borderlands (if you're playing solo)

Note: Both Risen and Dragon Age have no multiplayer option.

You mean Risen and Dragon Age have no multiplayer, so your "equation" would be more like:

Borderlands > Dragon Age = Risen, for Multiplayer.

Dragon Age > Risen > Borderlands, for Singleplayer.

I would suggest you try out the demo for Risen however, I didn't like it too much personally. However I do find Dragon Age very very good.

If you're a fan of the Baldur's Gate series, I guarantee you'll love Dragon Age Origins.. simply the best RPG I've played in a loooooong time!!! I'm finding this more enjoyable than Fallout 3!!!!! Though I love both games really much.

No Dragon Age =/= Risen since Dragon Age is a way better game. Thus Dragon Age > Risen.

He was rating them based on MP. Neither has MP and therefore they both fail at that.
