    Only story and dull voice acting ruin this otherwise classic western RPG

    ArcaniA:Gothic 4 Many reviews and reception around this game is based around the fact that it isn't necessarily a "Gothic" experience.I can agree with that to a certain degree,but that,to me did no...

    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 boug...

    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...

    Arcania offers qualities that can be appreciated by any Gothic fan who's willing to forgive.

    Rated on August 30, 2012 by herzalot

    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 la...

    This is a disgraceful place to see the Gothic series end up in. Completely stripped of everything we loved about Gothic!

    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 ent...

    After 10+ hours of gameplay, I can safely say that Arcania has a lot to offer to both die hard and casual rpg gamers. Rather than right a lengthy review I summarized what I feel are the pros and cons...

    Potential that has not been used. Lovely world - great creature designs but boring skill selection and weak story.

    Rated on October 14, 2010 by KainsDaughter

    I consider myself a game addict - especially for RPGs and I tend to still like games that others toss aside but Arcania just couldn't convince me. I haven't played the previous Gothic parts, but I'm...

    Rated on October 14, 2010 by Actibal

    I start with bad side (i dont even know what good in this game, except graphics) 1. Invisible walls - I thought this is open world, but i was mistaken... 2. Dialogues - have no options. I dont under...

    As I wrote before I don't understand why or how they gave it the name Gothic 4, people who know and love Gothic wont find the core of the game here. This is some wannabe Gothic game with stupid half r...
