I've played all the previous Gothic games and I quite like Arcania.
So I bought and played Gothic, Gothic II Gold, and Gothic 3 on Steam before Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods ever came out on Steam. Played and finished them then picked up G3:FG. I say this because I have experience with the Gothic games so when I say I enjoy Gothic 4 your interest is definitely piqued.

Let's get one thing out of the way; this is not Gothic IV in the way of gameplay. It IS Gothic IV in the way of story. Or the alternate universe that I believe started with Forsaken Gods. The normal universe ended with G3 and FG started a "what if" universe. I say that to justify the arguably meh story this game has. It's nice to see some familiar faces but I don't feel like they're being ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ized because of the above explanation. Sortof the same thing with Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger.

Anyway the gameplay, while simplified, is fun. It's pure sheer fun. It's easy to hop on, do some quests, walk around a beautiful landscape(I think it's beautiful anyway), and then hop off. That's what attracts me to this game. I don't want to worry about levels or anything like that. I just want a world to walk around in and enjoy myself. This game allows me to do that without any real work. While I understand why people won't like that it's perfect for what I want right now.

I also enjoy how the game's spread out between areas that allow for a small bit of exploration. Thus if I plan on 100%ing the game I can go little by little instead of Oblivion or Morrowind's "THERE'S A BUNCH OF ♥♥♥♥ NOW GO DO IT". While I understand why people don't like this I enjoy it.

As a 'Gothic' game this is fairly disappointing I agree. It's very simple and sortof holds your hand in some regards. At the same time sometimes I just wanna sit back, relax, and explore a world without any real worry. I want to build a character without having to preplan my builds. This game succeeds with that. I'm not done with it yet but I'm having loads of fun to where I can't turn it off. So I recommend this game to people who just want to relax and explore a world.

Oh and I should mention that the voice acting is pretty bad at times. At times. Not all of it is bad but there are some characters who have......bleh VA. Nothing too major though.

TES 3 & 4 never forced you to do every quest, you had as much influence on your adventure as you probably would in this game.

I actually enjoyed G3 a lot (with the com patch). Possibly because I went into it not expecting much and instead found a huge, detailed seamless world to enjoy. But the combat was kind of naff.

Even tried Risen nawh couldn't get into it due to the Gothic Style combat.

As a Gothic 1&2 fan hearing words like this hurts lol. The deliberate dumbing down of combat due to cries from not-a-fans is the single worst thing about Gothic 3 and the Risen series imo.

What are you two on about? Risen combat is the best out of all PB games! By a long shot!

Not really, considering how the developers are completely different from G1-G3.

Alot of ppl just never got the hang of Risen 1's combat system, which is a pitty. It is by far the most playerskill-based and deep mechanic in all Piranha Bytes titles. In comparison to Gothic 4 they are all great though.

btw: "they" didn't make both Gothic 3 and Gothic 4. Gothic 4 was made by Spellbound while all other Gothics and Risen was made by Piranha Bytes.
