As a Gothic fan will I like this?
I know there are some threads about this already but they are old and maybe they patched the game?

Im a Gothic fan it was the first rpg game of my childhood and cant tell how much I played it.

have spent a lot of time in Gothic 1 & 2 and recently I was playing Gothic 3 (Thanks to the community patch) Without it doesnt look like Gothic really, but my OS had crash and had to format the PC but I still have my save games.

So now Im here and wonder if I would like ArcaniA series as a fan of Gothic?
Is it still bug mess and glitch mess? I can live with some minor glitches as they are in Gothic 3 already.

G3 is a huge open free roam world, but G4 is smaller and linear. In G4 you progress from area to area no option to return or revist those previous areas. The melee combat is better in G4 but not by much, least its not broken like it was in G3. Ranged still seems to be the best option in both games, kind of like in Divinty 2. As for bugs cannot comment on Steam version only had console and PC retail versions.

I tried Risen not a great fan but they say its supposed to be the spiritual successor to how the new Gothics should have been made or something like that, worth a look too maybe OP?

I have Risen 1 & 2 and i will play them after I finish Gothic 3.

If Arcania is linear then then its not an open world reall WTH :(

I have Two Worlds series I thought theyre going to be like Gothic but I dunno I didnt get used to it and now theyre collecting dust.

Do you know about the TW DRM is it still 3 installs only? I have tried the demos of TW 1&2 thinking to buy?

Yeah thats the worst thing about G4 its not freeroam like G1 to G3.

Divinty 2 (it grew on me slowly) or KoA they are not too bad, and I enjoyed them more than G4.

I only installed TW once and didnt like it then uninstalled forever, the way it forces you to register and put the keys on their site and bla bla as it makes you feel like a thief like the steam isnt enough -.-

DRM over DRM seriously thats the main reason I got off and I doubt its free open world?

I also heard if you install more than 3 times you have to register again or demand a key, something stupid and nonsense like that, Im totally sure if I download TW via torrent I wouldnt bother with those stuff at all. nonsense Id avoid getting it.

Well go for whichever way is easier on you then haha. Both TW and TW2 are open world enough, TW you have pretty much all the world open asap, TW2 I think has like 3-4 different worlds that you progress through, but they are all big enough to be considered an open world on their own too.

I'd say stay out of Arcania. It's a horrible game and even more horrible towards the Gothic series fans, a non fan might even find it average, but to a fan... All the lore you know, and most importantly the characters, they are just done out in a way to spit in your face... Gothic 3 was already a bit far off from G1 and G2, but still the same game, this is not Gothic at all.

In my opinion..Arcania - Gothic 4 is better than Gothic 3..Arcania - Gothic 4 has a Better Graphics,Better Fighting System,Better Quests..The ONLY thing I do not like about Arcania Gothic 4 is that it does not accually has the same story with the other Gothic Video Games.
Night Cat 13 dec, 2013 @ 11:28 
^ Better graphics- yes, better fighting- just because of the graphics, it's still the same system, better quests... Really? Which part of the quests did you find better? Better quests? xD Like which part? The way they were horribly linear "pick that up, come back, go there"? Repetitive? Not rewarding? The way you didn't have a choice in doing them, because you had to to unlock that next tiny 1mx1m of the map?
TGSinister 14 dec, 2013 @ 1:43 
Yeah I dont find that annoying..I didnt said that all the quests are good but they are better than gothic 3..You can also find them more easily!!
skulz87 14 dec, 2013 @ 8:11 
Arcania isnt Gothic, it may have better graphics but I hate it, it doesnt deserve to be considered as "Gothic" game because of the story, gameplay, and it isnt an open world.

Its just a hack & slash, destroy everything on your way its not even a real rpg.
TGSinister 14 dec, 2013 @ 9:59 
Yeah I agree that it is not a Gothic game but if you did not knew anything about the Gothic series then Arcania is a very well designed game with a few minor problems..It is not perfect but it is a good RPG.
Night Cat 14 dec, 2013 @ 10:23 
It's rather impossible not to find the Arcania quests given how small the world is, how limited you are to the paths you can take and how the main quest takes you through every nook and cranny and through every town.
TGSinister 14 dec, 2013 @ 10:28 
True but is this bad? I mean, I like the quests so far!! The hole thing with putting the iron boletes into the mead for the brigands was brilliant!! The fighting in the old mine was also very good and Stewark as a city is awesome.

I dont see the fighting system is really that good in Arcania, all it does lock on the target and push attack key, which 10 year old game does that.

Arcania isnt a real rpg and its bad.
TGSinister 15 dec, 2013 @ 0:22 
When I said it is good I said it because it does not have the same boring moves of Gothic 3..It has some new moves and some new attacks that are cool..Arcania is a RPG even if you do not like it..It might not be perfect but it is still good.
Night Cat 15 dec, 2013 @ 6:56 
Yeah in all honesty Gothic 3 fighting is horrible too, at least the meele. It's too much staggering where depending on luck either you or your opponent gets to slash and dice the other one for a long time, get him against a wall and it's over. To me though the game is mostly just pleasant to play- nice world, good gameplay, story. And you can try and avoid the messed up meele combat by ranged attacks and magic which are fun to use.
TGSinister 15 dec, 2013 @ 9:55 
You are right!
