I recently bought the 'enhanced edition' off Steam. Yet to load it, might do a review once I've played it.
All the Gothic games are brilliant. They are for grown-ups, they have mature storylines that are not clichéd, they have adult situations within the quests and gameworld and they do not hold your hand in any way. Oblivion always held your hand too much because of it's console roots, with a arrow to point to your next quest, so you didn't have to explore, the silly conversation wheel and the fact the Radian AI had to be dumbed down because the consoles couldn;t handle the code!
well. if you got the updates for gothic 3 the game got a lot better, i don't think the new the game will have the old problems anyway.
I'm seeing barely anything new in the trailer, same spells, same character stance, same fighting. What I did see was a new dungeon. I hope they added a lot to the storyline.
i dunno im somewhat skeptical about this expansion, cuz Gothic 3 had a lot of issues and what little is shown in this trailer seems to suggests little has change except for more quests, maybe more spells and loot etc. i think that it'll run poorly on modest systems, have lackluster melee combat and suffer from interface problems and awkward animation. Im just hoping that Gothic 4 will make a decent effort becuz i love rpgs!
@ ArmaGeDDoN_mkd the witcher sort of sucked...... and oblivion got old after a while! but gothic 3, impressed me beyond any game. i could run crysis on very high without problems, yet i still get a little lag on minimum!
I am realy sure they could do better :( Don't know why does it take so long to do a game that feels Slow and Akward. I would love to see a game with this interface, but with the power of move that WOW had without beeing online. It has the potential but the guys working there must be a sleep or they can't see that the final product is Unpolished and has a lot to be improved. (to be nice) (my native language is not english so i make a few mistakes)
I'm a fan of the series so i cant be impartial, but [from what i have seen] the sword fighting is the same and the char. continues to move like a stuffed scarecrow. Except all this i will still buy this because i STILL have faith in JoWood.
If you think gothic 3 is good,just compare to Oblivion or Witcher and you will see how good it is.Be serious gothic sucks
the only improvement i noticed was the graphic engine the gameplay and story are still the same junk as in G3.
still looks laggy.the hero still moves like a woman and swings the sword like one.as for the graphics part HDR is good only for nvidia users ATI users have problems when HDR turned on. *sighs*
I played the demo for G3 and had no real problems and liked it enough to buy. I haven't had the chance to install it yet due to my computer not currently with me..long story. I know however the full version had many problems on release but will still try it when able. I am looking forward to this next expansion as the company states it will be aware of previous short comings and will strive to make this better. I hope so too. Game on!
I played both Gothic 2 and 3 on an A8n32/AMD setup, without any crashes or problems with gameplay. I enjoyed G3 enough to buy an expansion pack for more of the same.
Horrible trailer... Hope they do not repeat the disaster that was Gothic III - there was a buggy beta version of a game if I ever saw one.
