Best out of the series! Even with the huge performance problems, I found this game to be quite addicting and great fun!
Graphics/Physics: 9 - Fantastic graphics, a bit of tearing but rarely but still fantastic. Physics are a plus simply just because I can kill a rabbit and it goes flying, not really physics but hey it's still awesome.
Sound: 8.5 - Very realistic graphics and music is noticable but not overbearing or annoying.
Environment/Maps: 9.5 - Maps and landscape is very open and great for roaming and exploring, but do becareful since there are tough enemies out there. Environment is beautiful!
Game Engine/Scripting: 6 - Tons of bugs and errors, some even will crash the game certainly get all patches and updates before playing. Game requires a way unusual amount of PC horsepower, Loading screems are terribly long and still slow on quad core systems. Game will also randomly lag and tank out.
Interface: 8.5 - Huge amount of obtainable items, spells, skills and fun! Controls are pretty simple, for some reason swinging any weapon is really slow.
Overall: 8.5 - Best out of the series! Even with the huge performance problems, I found this game to be quite addicting and great fun! Make sure you PC is equipped well enough before considering playing on high graphics or the game will tank. If you have played either of the previous Gothic games, you must try this one.
