Originally posted by Larry:Never really got into Gothic or it's series but playing Arcania it was pretty good until the end. I treated it as an adventure where I played through for the beautiful scenery and locations. Voice acting and some of the character's faces were underwhelming but overall the game was definitely worth playing and the plot was good enough for me to get ♥♥♥♥ed off at the ending and how randomly thrown in everything was.Again, it was good but don't expect any form of a proper ending at all. The ending was pretty much broken, thrown together and completely lackluster but up until that point it was visually stunning, especially for it's time. Combat wasn't bad either.
Originally posted by Fuzzmandude:Well, Piranha Bytes have nothing to do with Arcania, and the company that made it no longer exists (because no one bought this). So it's not really a part of Gothic at all. But since PB have the rights again, maybe we will see a true Gothic 4.
