ArcaniA: The Complete Tale
28 July 2013
Conclusion: ArcaniA and its expansion are ultimately worth playing, but there's no reason to do so on the PS3. Whatever went into porting ArcaniA to the PS3 was not done with care, and the result is an ok-to-good game that now has a lot more technical and presentation issues it didn't have when it first released nearly three years ago on other platforms.
Review: Arcania – The Complete Tale (Sony Playstation 3)
20 June 2013
Summary: Arcania – The Complete Game isn’t the worst RPG I’ve ever played, but it’s certainly not a good one. If you’re in the market for a Diablo clone or a platinum that will only take two dozen hours (a fraction of the time it usually takes for a RPG), Arcania might be worth your time especially with the low budget price tag.
Excerpt: Arcania: The Complete Tale is an Xbox360 and PS3 port of ArcaniA Gothic 4 and its expansion, Fall of Setariff. The Gothic series had an amazing first entry around 2001, and was largely known for its complexity, atmosphere and challenge. Years later, the fourth installation in the cult classic RPG series comes in, and it's less of a direct sequel than it is a sidestep from the series: The gameplay has been heavily altered, simplified to accommodate a larger audience.
Excerpt: I really didn't know what to expect when I first popped ArcaniA: The Complete Tale into my PS3. I was asked to do the review, and after I checked out a few gameplay videos I agreed. The game looked like a fairly decent third-person RPG, and I've immensely enjoyed similar games in the past. Why not, right? What I found in ArcaniA is an uninspired, button-mashing adventure rife with clichï¿½s and bizarre design decisions alike.
Summary: Arcania: The Complete Tale is een compilatie: het bevat zowel het vierde deel in de Gothic-serie als de expansie, The Fall of Setariff. Met deze bundel is Arcania: Gothic 4 voor het eerst beschikbaar voor de PlayStation 3, hoewel deze al langer op Xbox 360 te spelen is. Arcania is de eerste Gothic-game die niet van de hand komt van Piranha Bytes – deze werd gemaakt door de Duitse studio Spellbound. Is het wat?
Pros: Graphics zijn mooi, Onbedoeld hilarisch, Goed voor beginnelingen
Cons: Slecht geschreven, Weinig diepgang, Veel bugs, RPG-elementen onhandig
