What Gamespot Users have to say about Gothic II

  • Review Score:9.2

    This sequel improves upon the original in every way but graphics. The story is excellent and the sound and dialog superb. The control scheme, which was lousy in the first one, has been revamped and is very easy to use. A... Read Full Review

    I feel like I'm still barely into the game, but I've played for a few days now. Gothic II is very immersive and reminds me somewhat of Ultima IX (which I really enjoyed). I've only had a few technical problems, but non... Read Full Review

    I love RPG's but have yet to ever finish one (I think). Morrowind was a great game and is extremely epic in scope, but I got bored (I still recommend it though). GothicII is one game I plan on finishing. It has held m... Read Full Review

    (Repost - from Druski99 in the forums) I live in europe and played G2 quite a while ago now so my memory of it isn't entirely fresh, but if I'm not mistaken I don't believe the Gamespot reviewer payed much attention t... Read Full Review

    One of the best single-player RPG's ever made. I wonder if Gamespot reviewer finished this game.

    The GS review is strangely wrong on a number of points. You can make the game easier and create "hotkeys" for health and magic potions if you want (just read the readme file after installing the game). The graphics... Read Full Review

    When I got this game I thought it would be something like morrowind. Was I ever wrong, the game itself seems to have had some work put into it, for the life of me I cant figure out why they would want to ruin it with suc... Read Full Review

    This game is without doubt the best RPG game I have ever played, and I played many of them. It has everything: Great story line, full freedom and nonlinear play, perfectly balanced gameplay and some of the best graph... Read Full Review

    A great, not to be missed, game!

    This game has juuu-u-st the right mix of fighting and exploring and humour that you would like in a RPG. It never takes itself too seriously, and the voice acting is ambient and at times hilarious. The xp system works... Read Full Review

    After finally completing Gothic 2 I was left wanting more. The game has a deep and very involving story w/some nice graphical elements and excellent gameplay. The controls are a little tough to get used too, but after ... Read Full Review

    Gothic II is set in a dark medieval world of humans, orcs and other creatures of various types from scavengers which are ostrich like birds to the more familiar trolls and dragons. The story is somewhat cliché but that ... Read Full Review
