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”.
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.
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.

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.
Excerpt: Говорят, дважды в одну и ту же реку не войдешь – даром промокнешь. Но как же тогда проверить утверждения нытиков, стонущих из года в год все сильнее, что раньше заклинания были ядренее, броня красивее, а орки злее? А может это нам, ветеранам индустрии, все только кажется?
