Lots of potential...hoping for an extensive patch.

As a lover of the Gothic series (with the possible exception of the rather buggy Forsaken Gods), I was very disappointed with this game. The storyline was OK but linear, side quests were mostly kill/find x number of y. There were some difficult battles but a large use of magic ended most fights before the enemy even got near me, magic was too overpowered and once again, missile weapons were way underpowered.

The thing I hated most was the teleport system. You couldn't go back to a region via teleport, but you could spend several minutes running there. A linked teleport system would have raised my interest level.

I had been looking forward to this for several months but was sorely dissapointed with the final product. In my opinion, the game was delivered too buggy and graphics intensive.
