    Trial and error gameplay, bad fighting system... In a world so beautiful and full of life that you just forget all that.

    The storyline is something of a cliche, not very innovative, but what fill is just great... Although the voice acting is ludicrous at times and the fighting system and physics engine quite poor, t...

    Gothic II is a fun but unforgiving RPG that may be outdated but is still a lot of fun.

    Game is way underated, its actually one of the best rpgs to date.Used to love Morrowind but this game has way more depth

    This is one of those rare games where the world actually feels alive and while its still scripted it really immerses the player in the game unlike many other rpgs. The graphics also seem a bit dated b...

    Gothic is worth buying for sure

    Rated on January 25, 2006 by mitjazagar

    Gothic 2 os a very good RPG because it is a very large map and huge playing choice like which guild would you will be. You can choose between Paladin, Dragon Hunter and Fire mage. The game concludes a...

    Rated on July 07, 2006 by preben_kristian

    The game may look dull at the first 15 minutes, because the gameplay is just not right. The lack of the ability to make the character do multiple strikes and the high mouse sensitivity. But if you jus...

    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

    Gothic II is a vastly different experience than Morrowind, but equally as great.

    Rated on February 28, 2005 by Everclearules

    I had heard many people talking about this game, and decided to give it a try. Normally I don't really like action RPG's, but Gotic II still gave me much enjoyment. Gothic II is similar to Morrowind ...
