Several years ago I wrote my first review of a pc game here on Amazon. It was a review of Gothic 3, which I declared to be the worst game I had ever played. I now have to retract that claim. Gothic 3 may have been so buggy it was nigh on unplayable, but at least there was a somewhat enjoyable game buried under all those bugs. This game, however, is not enjoyable in any way. There is no chance that future bug fixes will ever make this a decent game. Unlike my experience with Gothic 3, this time around I wasn't expecting anything great. I would have settled for mediocre. I thought surely it couldn't be worse than Gothic 3. I was wrong. There are many, many reasons why this is not only unworthy to carry the name "Gothic," but also why it is a terrible game in its own right. Here is a very brief list.

1. First and foremost, it is the most linear RPG I have ever played. Even admittedly linear RPGs like KOTOR at least let you select the order in which you complete some of the areas. This game is a straight line, and there is nothing you can do that will change anything that happens in the game world. There is literally not a single choice your character can make that has any noticeable effect on the game world. Every time you play the game everything will happen exactly the same way. I have never seen a game with less replay value. Gone are the guilds/factions from previous Gothic games. Gone is any actual role playing element in the game. You can't even attack any NPCs for crying out loud! If you blatantly steal their belongings from right under their noses, they don't even care. You literally have no effect on the world outside of the narrow, pre-scripted route the game designers wrote for you.

This game has been out for a week now(Germany), and while english is not my native language, i like to add another review here on amazon.com.

I played the demo of Arcania, and the game itself, at least for 8 hours.

Let me tell you one thing upfront:
Arcania in it self has NOTHING to do with the Gothic series. Yes, Diego and a few other characters are in the game, and the story is supposed to play after the third (and also awful) installment of the series.
But the game content has little to do with the features, that made "Gothic" a great gaming experience. Another thing: Piranha Bytes, the makers of the first 2 games have NOTHING to do with Arcania. Spellbound, another german developer made it and it's their first RPG.
But back to the game.

You start with a very mediocre intro, that tells you a retarded story about the old nameless hero. After that, the first 15 minutes of the game is a dream sequence, where you clean out a dungeon. There are no explainations, no health bar and you can't be killed. You just kill 50 enemies, and that's it. This is explained later, but this is just horrible storytelling and a pretty stupid start.
You meet your fiance, and the first thing you will notice is, that the graphics are nice. Really they are, but unfortunately, thats one of the very few things good in Arcania.
The next things you will notice are the really bad dialogs and the asynchronous lip movements. I haven't seen THAT for a long time. The last time i saw that in a game was 2002..i think.

I won't go into the story much further, to avoid spoilers, so i will just tell you what the game is, and what it isn't.

- The dialogs are horrible. Most of them are one-liners which could have been written by a 6th grader.

I know that everyone has their own taste in games, but this game is poorly designed and not very much fun. Whether you've played other Gothic games or not, this game is a major let down. If you're going to buy the game, please don't pay $50, $40, $30 or even $20 for the game. It might be worth $5.

First of all, I am an American reviewer who actually bought the game (and I regret it, even though I had a gift card). I have also ONLY played Gothic 3, and never 2 or 1. This game, with the first patch, runs fine on my system. The game play is awful.

1. You can steal everything from everyone--but don't worry, because you won't need to sell it as you will already have better equipment than any vendor will be able to sell you. The second part might not sink in until you play the game and realize that you randomly find everything.

2. Magic is worthless. If you were deceived into believing that you could be a mage, forget it. If you like being a magic user, don't waste your money. Having maxed out the mage skill trees (of which there are three straight lines in which you learn fireball, frost, and shock) I can now cast 5-6 fireballs. It takes 2 fireballs at level 24 (skill trees stop at level 16, by the way, and I used a trainer to fill every skill point in magic) to kill a bloodfly. Magic doesn't even restore all that quickly, and even though you get more mana, the spells cost seemingly just that much more so you cannot really cast any more spells as you level up. Was it really too much for the developers to put more than 3 spells in the game? Even the Witcher--where you were not supposed to be a magic user--had more than 3 spells.

3. The characters mostly all look alike--and this is no understatement.
