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.

As a lover of the Gothic series (with the possible exception of the rather buggy Forsaken Gods), I was very disappointed with this game. The storyline was OK but linear, side quests were mostly kill/find x number of y. ... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
