Honestly didn't play the game much. Started with the lackluster tutorial where I walked around smacking down orcs and stealing my neigbors' stuff. Nothing groundbreaking but not really fun. Still, maybe it just starts slow.
Here's the ♥♥♥♥♥. In the middle of the tutorial, attempting to click on a chest and steal my neighbor's stuff, I accidentally clicked on his bed instead. (That's not the problem. That was totally me being clumsy, not the game's fault). My character walks towards the bed, but there's a chest in the way. You'd think he'd path around it, right? No, the dumbass walks up to the interveneing chest then just keeps on walking against it dry humping it for all he's worth.
Does he eventaully path around it? NO
Does he eventually stop? NO
If I mash every key on my keyboard, will it cancel his action and make him stop? NO
Can I bring up the menu to try and save my game and reload? NO
No, he's so damned determined to frotteurize that poor helpless chest that he, and the game with him are blind to the world. Unlike it's crappy older brother though, I CAN Ctrl-ALT-DEL out of the game.
Was it good enough to re-invest that 25 minutes? NO
Is it likely that the rest of the game is programmed perfectly and I just hit the only game-breaking bug in the whole game 2 minutes in? NO
Am I willing to play the game in a constant state of paranoia, saving before every action in case this kind of crap is pervasive? NO
Am I glad I only spent $5 on the entire (so far completely unplayable) Gothic Series? YES!!!
Am I sick and tired of buying games on Steam that someone at steam should have at least made an effort to QC? DOUBLE YES!!!
