Nothing epic about this tale

Game Debate
18 October 2010
  • Excerpt: If you want your Arcania: A Gothic Tale review to be short but sweet, here it is: The game looks good, but is let down by repetitive quests, some graphical glitches and poor, poor voice acting. Seriously, the dialogue often sounds terrible but you'll get to a point where you can enjoy it in an ironic way. Still, it's a pleasant enough, if incredibly generic fantasy RPG adventure. So where does our story begin?
  • Pros: Looks great, Simple combat, Lots of loot
  • Cons: Repetitive quests, Graphical glitches, Horrible voice acting!

Hunted: The Demon's Forge

Hooked Gamers

  • Conclusion: The best part about Hunted: The Demon’s Forge , and really the only interesting part, is the banter between E’lara and Caddoc. During battles, after battles, while climbing long flights of stairs the two constantly jab each other. I particularly enjoyed E’lara teasing Caddoc about his silly fear of bugs and his old age, despite being twice as old as him. Their back-and-forth conveys a strong familiarity, a long and eventful history together.

Arcania: Gothic 4 im Test

GameStar
8 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Arcania heißt Gothic 4, bricht aber mit den Tugenden der Vorgänger. Das ist nicht schlimm. Dass Arcania auch mit den klassischen Tugenden des Rollenspiel-Genres bricht, hingegen schon.
  • Pros: detaillierte Figuren, atmosphärische Lichteffekte, schöne Landschaften, scharfe Texturen, dynamische, passende Musik, ordentliche Surround-Kulisse, größtenteils passende, professionelle Sprecher, Held entwickelt sich spürbar weiter, vier Schwierigkeitsgrade ..., teils witzige Dialoge, stimmungsvolle Spielwelt ..., zuschaltbare Quest-Hilfen, belegbare Schnelltasten, gute Maussteuerung ..., rund 20 Stunden lange Handlung, große, abwechslungsreiche Spielwelt ..., Sammelq...
  • Cons: einige hakelige Animationen, viele Klon-Charaktere, teils fehlende Umgebungsgeräusche, die sich aber erst im letzten Spieldrittel spürbar auswirken, ödes Tutorial, schwache Einhand-Waffen, ... in der es wenig zu entdecken gibt, künstlich begrenzte Gebiete, im letzten Spieldrittel stumpfe Schnetzelei, ... trotz der auf Gamepad-Bedienung ausgelegten Kämpfe, Held hängt teils fest, ... mit vielen leeren Gebieten, vergleichsweise wenige Quests, ... dann aber konfus, aussch...

  • Excerpt: Etter forrige Gothic-utgivelse har serien mye å bevise for gamlefansen, men merkelig nok har Jowood valgt å snu på flisa med sitt nyeste. Ole-Kristian har dykket ned i Arcania...

Arcania: Gothic 4

Gamereactor
3 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Etter skilsmissen fra utvikler Piranha Bytes har utgiver Jowood Productions, nå med Spellbound som ny utvikler og parhest, mye å bevise overfor fansen av Gothic-serien. Utgiveren fikk, overraskende for mange, med seg alle rettighetene til Gothic-serien. Men med utgivelsen av Risen og forventninger om en oppfølger har Piranha Bytes tilsynelatende klart seg bra etter bruddet.
  • Pros: Pene omgivelser, tilgjengelighet, levende atmosfære
  • Cons: Usynlige vegger, grusomt lineært, manglende rollespillelementer, balanse, stemmeskuespill, ingen svømming, treg innledning, kampsystem, crafting

Arcania: Gothic 4

GameCaptain
25 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Während Gothic 3 vor allem mit seinen Bugs zu kämpfen hatte, sind solche Technikmängel beim offiziellen Nachfolger eigentlich kaum ein Problem. Stattdessen hakt es beim Rest. Die Geschichte ist über weite Strecken wenig fesselnd, die Quests laufen meist nach Schema F ab, der Umfang des recht linearen Abenteuers kann nicht an Glanzzeiten der Serie anknüpfen, wichtige Entscheidungen gibt es nicht zu treffen und die Charakterentwicklung zeigt sich ziemlich simpel.
