Arcania - an Oblivion rip off of sorts... but fun overall

Summary: Well, if you're into Skyrim or its predecessor Oblivion like I am, then this game might be for you. While it is definitely no Skyrim, it does remind me somewhat of Oblivion with some similar storylines and quests.
Summary: It's like skyrims younger cousin. Not as long. Not as involved. Still pretty good. Ever since skyrim I have been searching for the next best thing. A bit of hope with this game. About 25 hours, interesting characters, pretty good customization. I liked it.
Summary: I really enjoyed this game. It is not an open ended RPG like I had hoped. The game is very linear, however, it offers about 30 hours of game play and good graphics. Don't expect it to by anything like Skyrim or Oblivion, even though it looks and plays similar to these games.
Summary: I had been waiting for something like this for a long time and I'm completely happy with my purchase. I don't see any reason for a second play through, which might be another factor to consider before purchasing. I actually have been playing this over Fallout: New Vegas.
ArcaniA: Gothic IV - An Epic and Fun Role-Playing Game

Summary: ArcaniA: Gothic IV is the newest entry in the Gothic franchise, however unlike previous entries in the franchise, this one wasn't developed by Piranha Bytes, it was developed by franchise newcomers Spellbound.
Summary: I normally don't write reviews about games, but seeing all the negative reviews on Amazon and elsewhere, i wanted to say something. First off, STOP comparing this game and all other rpg swordplay games to Oblivion! Yes, compared to oblivion, this game sucks balls. But, this game isn't oblivion.
Summary: Gamertag Gremdude here with another review. I originally preordered this game for the PS3 but when Amazon pushed the freaking release date back to 9/11, I went ahead and picked up the Xbox version. Just finished this game and I have to say I pleasantly surprised overall with the game.
Summary: i've read a lot about this game, and most of it is bad. although i am new to the gothic series, i think this game is just terrific. the one thing that none of these reviews mention is the fact that there are absolutely no loading screens, except when you die. go into a cave, no load screen.
