    Gothic's a creepy for all the wrong reasons; filled with terrible controls and unbalanced gameplay.

    I played Gothic for 10 hours or so before just quitting because I just couldn’t stand it any more. This has to be the worst controls I have ever seen for a game. They've made the game as if it was first meant to be put... Read Full Review

    One of the greatest PC games I've ever played.

    Gothic one is one of the best PC games I've ever played and you can be shure, I've played a lot. I can't think of any game which was so suprisingly good as this one. It features a unique story, a gigantic world to discov... Read Full Review

    A perfect combination of RPG and action.

    Gothic is a game that combines RPG and action, and I think it does very well. Unlike most of that kind of games, is more an RPG than an action game. The most important thing here is to gain exp. to learn more abilities a... Read Full Review

    Highly addictive RPG

    Gothic used to be one of my favorite games. The story is a lot of fun and really makes you want to play the continuation of the series. The graphics are of course not as nice as for example in Gothic 3, which came out 5 ... Read Full Review

    An extraordinary game, but not perfect.

    Gothic I is one of the greatest games I played. No, it's the second gratestr game I played, second only to Morrowind. Although the game has many bugs (some of which even force you to start the game over), a not so good c... Read Full Review

    Gothic

    A third-person RPG with RTS elements in another genre-blending adventure? Yep — and not a bad one, either. Gothic isn’t a straightforward action game; it’s a genuine RPG packed with tons of action. The initial storyli... Read Full Review

    Gothic 2 is much better but that doesn't mean that Gothic 1 is bad

    Gothic 1 was easily one of the best PC RPG's in years when it came out in 2001. It has an evolving story-line that really does change as you make choices. The environment is large and it is quite a lot of fun just expl... Read Full Review
