  • Excerpt: “You are a man with no name, no identity, and no talents.” There now, you all know it (watches almost everybody walking away). “No, please come back. I was only bringing everybody in the right mood for my Gothic II review”.

Gothic 2 Gold

ActionTrip
26 January 2006
  • Conclusion: Another good thing is that Gothic 2 Gold costs a mere 19 bucks and it's worth every cent, especially if you're a persistent RPG freak (like myself). In any case, the game is a definite must-have for RPG fans. It is also a perfect way to kill time before Gothic 3 hits the stores.
  • Pros: A revised and polished version of an excellent RPG, plenty of new content, a profound RPG experience altogether;
  • Cons: Certain gameplay drawbacks from the original game are still present, steep learning curve, awkward controls.

Gothic 2

Just RPG
16 September 2005
  • Excerpt: Gothic 2 is everything that should be seen in an RPG. It’s that simple. My review could stop right here, and you’d know everything you need to. But then, you wouldn’t be able to know all the great things about it...so I’ll continue.

Gothic II

The Armchair Empire
30 January 2004
  • Conclusion: While embarking on this adventure there will be plenty of opportunities to whack away on various enemies. While it is fun once you get the hang of it, learning to use the controls for combat takes quite a bit of time to get your timing right to really lay into an enemy. For the first little while swinging at enemies will not feel fluid at all as you clumsily take a few swings at your opponent but with time and lots of practice it becomes a lot easier to quickly connect...

  • Summary: Gothic II is a single-player role-playing sequel in which you play as a lone hero who must do battle with bandits, orcs, and dragons in a sprawling 3D world. Like in the first game, you control a soft-spoken hero from a behind-the-back perspective and follow one of three career paths in pursuit of his ultimate goal--which, in this case, is to stave off an assault by orcs and dragons unleashed by the death of a demon, the same one that he defeated at the end of the first...

Gothic 2

GamersHell.com
21 June 2003
  • Excerpt: Sometime during the fall of 2001, I gave a fairly unknown game called 'Gothic’ a try. My expectations weren’t high at all, but it was an RPG - so it could be fun. The game turned out to be one of my all-time favorite games, regardless of genre. The graphics weren’t great, the music was okay, the controls were weird at best - but the story was very involving, and kept you going for between 30 and 40 hours (depending on how many quests you did that weren’t related to the...

Gothic II

Gamecell
17 September 2005
  • Conclusion: Still, all the horrible parts aside, if you spend long enough playing it, it can work you into such a frenzy of frustration that you have to keep on playing it. You just have to beat that Orc, or find that lost artefact, and I guess that could appeal to certain gamers, especially hardcore Action RPG players. Overall, I can't say the game is bad, because it isn't.
  • Pros: Nice Hack 'n' Slash battle system., Good Graphics on high-end systems., Very nice music., Element of complexity not often seen.
  • Cons: TOOOO HAAARRRDDD., PC Requirements too high for normal people., Low graphics settings means that it looks like the entire land is made of mud., The element of complexity is often TOO complex.

Gothic 2

Gameswelt

  • Excerpt: Es gab ja kurz vor dem Release von 'Gothic 2' aufgrund der Finanznöte von Publisher JoWooD einiges an Verunsicherung. Das ändert aber glücklicherweise nichts an dem Spiel selbst, das bereits seit ein paar Tagen auf unserem Testrechner arbeitet. Wie auch immer, 'Gothic 2' ist der heiß erwartete Nachfolger des seinerzeit bereits hoch gelobten 3D-Rollenspiels von Piranha Bytes und versetzt euch erneut in eine umfangreiche Fantasy-Welt im Rahmen einer spannenden Story.
