Gothic 4 was a purchase on a whim. I had a few days to burn until Fallout New Vegas came out and I was looking for something that would keep me occupied over the weekend. I had known about it for a couple weeks but didn't expect much from it. While at Gamestop, it caught my eye and I decided to give it a try. About a week later, I'm still playing the game and enjoying it immensely. It's got it's problems but nothing that kills it for me. Hit the jump to see my first impressions of Arcania: Gothic 4.

From what I understand, the Gothic series is pretty big in the UK but never really hit home in the states. We've gotten the games before but they usually received mediocre reviews with little fanfare. So, before it ever hit shelves, Gothic 4 had that going against it. Plus, throw in the fact that you probably never heard of it before me telling you (unless you're an RPG buff) and the game could float away into obscurity. If that happened, no one would notice, but you should. Why should you care about this game? Because it's not half bad and if you have taken a liking to games such as Oblivion - third person RPG's with swords, spells, and quests - you may very well find yourself enjoying it.

The game begins with a no named character who is a shepherd in a small island village. His wants to marry his girlfriend but her father forbids it. So, the father sends the man on three trials which basically teach you game mechanics. After your final trial and subsequent approval from the father in law to be, you and your betrothed make plans to set sail for the main land to go explore for their honeymoon.

I've never played any of the Gothic franchise on PC, but I've always heard people rave about how great the games were and about how open-ended and immersive they were. The most open-ended and immersive game I've ever played on a console was Oblivion and I loved it (still do from time to time), so I was curious when I heard that this was coming to the Xbox 360.

Now, from what I understand, this game takes a step away from the previous games in the franchise in order to, 1.) Appeal to a wider range of players than just the 'hardcore' ones devoted to Gothic and its particular quirks and, 2.) Give a company other than Piranha Bytes a chance to show what it can do with the Gothic title. Piranha Bytes took their original concept, tinkered with it a little bit and came up with Risen (itself an excellent game) and I've read that THAT one is almost exactly in the same vein as the original Gothic, albeit optimized for the console systems. Playing both, I can tell you there is a huge difference between these two.

I can see many players of Gothic dissing this game for taking such a departure from the originals and I can understand their point; if something's not broke, don't fix it. Still if you take this game and judge it on it's own merits (and I think that's what Jowood was trying to do by listing the main title here as 'Arcania: Gothic 4' instead of being JUST 'Gothic 4'), it's really not a bad one at all if you're the type that enjoys western-style fantasy roleplaying games.

GAMEPLAY-3 Stars
I'll say this right off the mark; the game is heavily directed in leading you to the end. It's got one big story and it WANTS you to focus on it.

I believe you'll read a lot of bad reviews of this game. The reason is not the game itself, but a situation around it. Pyranha Bites, a developer of Gothic sreies, had to give away the right to make this game after a nasty legal dispute with its former publisher, JoWood. After that PB went to develop a new title, Risen, and JoWood hired a european developer SpellBound to make a next Gothic title, Arcania. Fans of Gothic (and there are a lot of us, mostly in Germany, Russia, and Poland) were pissed beyond measure. From the beginning a lot of people were agains Arcania just because of this reason. They openly wished this game never be published and JoWood go bankrupt. So please perceive this egativity for what it is. I am a Gothic fan, but there are limits, you know. It is not decent to talk crap about the game just to make publisher to loose money, and it is not fair to a very decent game. Some german folks even show up here to write bad reviews. So take it for what they are.
Yes, a lot of elements from Gothic games have been lost, so Arcania is Gothic in title only, but the game itself is quite charming, actually. You will get a big (semi)opened world (each new section of the island opens after you complete the main quiest), but these sections are very big, so you won't feel claustrafobic. The world is great, actually. Beautiful sunrises ans sunsets, very well done architecture (castles are really superb), so you will enjoy just being there. At least I hope you will, because I am enjoying it and want to share. ;)
There are a lot of enemies to slain, of all shapes and sizes, from spiders and goblins to fire golems and demons. There are four difficulty settings to choose from, from very easy, to rather hard. There is a lot of crafting in the game, from weapons to potions and food.
