Arcania: Gothic 4 Review
Arcania has been dumbed down into a generic action role-playing game, so it isn't a Gothic game in anything but its subtitle.
Different skill and combat system, no trainers, no beds to sleep in to wake up fully recovered, no magic runes, and many other differences. I was at first very disappointed due to the mentioned differences but after a wh... Read Full Review11 of 14 users found the following review helpful
While Risen looked back to Gothic 2 and the golden era of the company, JoWood decided to go in a completely different, by removing as many features as they could. A major difference between Gothic 4 and it's prequels,... Read Full Review14 of 14 users found the following review helpful
After a long hiatus, Arcania: Fall of Setarrif finally arrived back in late 2011 as it was originally announced to be released during mid-2010, and then postponed indefinitely around March 2011. Obviously it's an expansi... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
We, the XBOX 360 owners, do not have a great deal of selection when it comes to RPGs. There is probably 3-5 shooters on average for every RPG that comes out on the XBOX, so sometimes gamers might find a little "thirst" f... Read Full Review5 of 6 users found the following review helpful
And why would the perfect score be 8.5??Because giving the game any more than that is like putting it in the same league as KotOR or NeverWinter Nights or Dragon Age etc. It is a well know fact that this franchise had al... Read Full Review8 of 19 users found the following review helpful
Gothic 3 wasn't entirely bad. It wasn't up to the standard of fun that 1 & 2 were, but it was still playable. This on the other hand... it's like Gothic for idiots. Story is retarded... the entire set of intro que... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful

Fall of Setarrif is simply made for the sole reason of tying the loose ends and nothing more. It's so short and light on content that it can hardly be called a proper DLC. Let alone a stand-alone add-on. After the cu... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Unfaithful sequels are no news. Generally speaking, sometimes, they alienate the fans, but attract the attention of mainstream, sometimes they alienate the both crowd. Although Arcania falls to the latter category, but t... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Ahhh I did buy this when it was first released, it was only recently I have been playing the original Gothic titles, that I remembered this title. I won't go into much details since its a couple of years old now, but ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
I did not play many RPG before because I did not like to spend many hours searching or roaming for lost artifacts and spells and so on. I thought it was boring. But then I noticed this game and I bought it. I liked how i... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
