Summary: It may not be the most polished RPG, but it is addicting and fun, and as many of the critics have said if you want to get into the open world RPG games then this is a good place to help you get acquainted with these kinds of games as it is simple without being overly simple, easy to figure out, also it's the perfect difficulty for those just starting out, and it's just a lot of fun, it doe s have some polish issues though, the graphics are bad, and the voice acting is...
Summary: A lot of people seemed to hate this game, maybe because the beginning really sucks and the story doesn't really evolve until the last 6-7 hours but Arcania: Gothic 4 was still enjoyable despite having a lot of problems. There are many good things about this game, the graphics look amazing for a console game and I really appreciate that, the world is huge and fun to explore, and there is a good amount of side-quests to keep you busy meanwhile you play this game.
Summary: This game would have received a 7 from me if they hadn't had 'Gothic' in the title. Gothic means a lot to RPG fans, and this game just stole the setting and slapped on a shallow, brown-yellow exterior that made me cringe while playing it. Gone is everything that made Gothic games great in this iteration, avoid at all costs.
Summary: Arcania Gothic IV is a generic and AVERAGE RPG. First everyone starts as the same male character. The leveling system is very basic with only a few ways to differentiate characters. The achievements are impossible to attain in one play through. Three are collections based (the collectibles are impossible without a cheat book) and another achievement is based on selling every possible item in the game. Combat is intuitive but switching between weapons is a bit clunky.
Summary: When I played it for the first time, I was more disappointed than I thought I will. Spellbound did really bad job on that one.. It is a merely a continuation of previous Gothics. Only two good things that I am able to come up with are the graphics and improved fighting style (Compared to Gothic 3). Improved doesn't mean good though.. Most of opponents we face during the game we won't have any problems with.
Summary: First of all Arcania should not be called Gothic, quite simply because it is nothing like the three original Gothic games. This game shouldn't be classed as an RPG either, because frankly the only choice with any impact on the game world the player gets to make, is whether they want sunshine or rain in a certain area. The original Gothic games excelled in their freedom and the impact the players choices had on the game world.
Summary: Are u ppl joking?! If u have followed the gothic series then u should love this game like i do. Sure ok the game has its glitches , and u cant swim like in the others but it has patches , for some reason the gothic games where rushed, gothic 3 was more then words can describe. The whole series is breathtaking no to mention that it also came out on 360 is really cool i own both copies and needless to say they are awsome.
Summary: Well I completely dogged this game in another review cause I couldn't get it to install but I finally figured it out and wanted to give this game credit. For those of you having issues with ATI video cards install the PhysX drivers from Nvidia, not the ones packaged with the game. Also make sure your sound is set to 24 bit, 48000HZ. The game runs very well and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.
Summary: Spent about 4 hours trying to get this game to run on my brand new Lenovo Ideapad with ATI video card and kept erroring out. I got this laptop for gaming so it has excellent specs. I've played all the other Gothic games which I loved. Gothic 3 was my least favorite but it was entertaining enough. Received error "Arcania has stopped working". I've had these issues in the past. Sometimes it's C++, sound settings, or even Directx but nothing worked.
Summary: This being the first game i have played of the Gothic series, i think i have a non bias opinion on this game... The story is not compelling, the game is way to easy even on the hardest mode, the crafting would be great if the difficulty of the game was harder, but because you can defeat every enemy just by sidestepping most of the items go unused and are only worth the points they add to y our gamer-score … Expand
