    Underappreciated rough gem

    This is a highly overlooked and often unfairly critised role playing game. I am a fan of the Baldur's Gate and Fallout series and lately Oblivion. While Gothic II is not as groundbreaking as the likes of Baldur's Gate, i... Read Full Review

    Gothic II

    Once upon a time, RPGs were about more than scooping up cool loot and grinding away to reach level 42 so you could use that spiffy spiked helmet. They were about personalized characters in a setting that realistically re... Read Full Review

    Why do they hate the game? Simple, because the don't know how to play the game,

    Why is it that the things I love most about this game are the ones the reviewers here hate?

    The things that get critiziced the most here are the control scheme and the trial-and-error system. Now, I don't have anything against easy games, don't get me wrong. But this game takes a realistic approach to RPG. R... Read Full Review

    This is the buggiest game that I ever loved playing.

    This is the buggiest game that I ever loved playing. It's hard not comparing this to The Elder Scrolls. While it is not at large or as deep as that game, it hits a lot of the same marks for me. I loved exploring this wor... Read Full Review

    Takes some time to learn about the goofy combat system, but once you get a hold of the game you'll be playing for weeks

    This game is indeed amazing within the RPG genre, although it disposes of a ,rather more difficult to learn then usual, combat system, one you mastered it, you can see that it is a welcomed change from the tradition &quo... 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

    Dragon Slaying? Can't go wrong there!!!!

    Gothic 2 is a huge improvement from the first installment "Gothic". Between Gothic, Gothic 2 and Gothic 3 - the second installment clearly deserves a big cheers. It is a very long game which can keep you hooked... Read Full Review

    Blast from the Past

    I recently picked up a copy of this game in a local gameshop for about 7 euros. When I had installed it I was stupified to see that this was a game I'd played before a few years ago (illegal copy) but never finished it! ... Read Full Review
