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).
Summary: I really loved the first three games in the gothic series and thought this one would be the same. WRONG!!! Unlike the other titles in the series this game has a very straight forward story and quest line that does not go off the script.
It's OK, I expected better with the "Gothic" name.

Summary: This game isn't bad, it's just not great. Not as great as the other Gothic games, and not as great as Risen. I love types of games, I try to play as many of them as I can. But it takes a while for some to make their way to the US from Germany, and most of the time it is worth the wait.
Summary: Update: Have been playing the game for over 20 hours now and it is seriously boring. Very linear, horrible graphics, terrible story-line. Original review: I loved Gothic 3 (one of the best RPG's ever) and have been looking forward to this game since it was announced, but with a new developer this...
Summary: Arcania had some good ideas, had some ok looking gameplay, but failed. the biggest issue is the frame rate, it's seriously less than 30 frames per second, it's more like 20 fps. it's unplayable at that low a frame rate.
Summary: The face of almost every charecter in the game is repeated , sometimes multiple times. this spoiled even more what proved to be an average at best game in my opinion, flawed in so many ways but the repetition of charectors was the worst for me.
Summary: Ich hatte mir das Spiel vor einiger Zeit gekauft und wollte mit der Rezension warten bis ich das Addon Fall of Setarrif durch habe. Das Hauptspiel ist... nicht schlecht. Es hat mit der Serie bis auf Charaktere und bestimmten anderen Elementen nichts gemein und das merkt man auch sehr deutlich.
Summary: ...so erging es mir, ich habe einige Bewertungen durchgelesen und sah das es viele unterschiedlichen meinungen gab. Also habe ich es mir geholt und war anfangs positiv überarscht schöne aufmachung und alles begann wie immer, einige hilfsarbeiten verichten oder paar Käfer erledigen.
Summary: Wer Spiele, vor allem Rollenspiele kennt und liebt, der/die kann aus Arcania nur schlussfolgern: spätestens nach einigen Stunden stellt es sich als weiterhin unspielbar dar, weil es eine Zumutung ist!
