Das bis heute beste Piranha-Bytes Spiel:

Ich habe Gothic 3 ab dem 1. Patch gespielt und bin bis heute unvergleichlich begeistert. Kein anderes Singleplayer-Rollenspiel, konnte mich derart fesseln. Mit den aktuellsten Patches sollten die Mainstream Gegenargumente nun beseitigt sein. Vorallem der Community Patch 1.75 leistet handfeste Arbeit. Ich kann nicht nachvollziehen, warum nur aufgrund von vergangenenden technischen Mängeln, dass ganze Paket so schlecht bewertet wurde.
Die atmosphärisch und detailverliebte Spielwelt von Gothic 3 in Kombination mit den tollen Quest ist einfach der Hammer. Es ist definitiv ein Rollenspiel für Leute die sich erst etwas mit dem Spiel beschäftigen müssen. Man kann nun mal nicht von Anfang an alle Gegner bekämpfen, aber gerade das schätze ich an der Anti-Casualspielmechanik der Piranha-Bytes-Entwickler. Was auch gesagt werden muss: G3 enthält im Prinzip 3 Spiele, denn die Spielwelten Myrtanas, Nordmars und Varant spielen sich grund verschieden. Man kann von Anfang an die gesamte Spielwelt bereisen. Die Dialoge und Quests sind herrausragend. Es gibt z.B. Quests auf deren Lösung man erst nach 20 Stunden stöst. Das Spiel hat einen grossen Handlungs und Entscheidungsfreiraum und verschiedene Enden. Durch die Entscheidung für oder gegen die Menschen zu kämpfen ist die Spielerfahrung grundlegend anders.
Grafisch sieht es aufgrund der tollen Texturen, auch heute noch sehr gut aus. Vorallem müssen die Architekturen und die musikalische Untermalung gelobt werden.

Wer bereit ist sich mit dem Spiel in Verbindung zu bringen und erste Erfolge erst nach geringer Eingewöhnungszeit in Kauf nehmen kann, wird es nicht bereuen sondern ein unglaubliches Abenteuer erleben.

An underrated gem. With the community patch, this buggy and broken game becomes slightly less buggy and broken to the point where the strength of it's other elements is able to shine.

Namely, a massive open, explorable world with a variety of towns, locales and the ability to make choices with consequences ingrained into the game mechanics in a way which makes sense for the story. The writing is somewhat bland, but the freedom is stellar and the soundtrack is breathtaking (if small).

Gud gaem. Not a polished AAA production by any means, but better than it's given credit for.

If Piranha Bytes had another year to polish, add more content and work out the kinks Gothic 3 could of been one of the best video games EVER made. But instead, its just a really awesome game. Gothic 3 is definitely the best and most beautiful game in the series and a game that makes you feel allot of nostalgia when you play it. and when you are playing it you can't help but to often think that the game could of been epic level if the game was polished and had more main story quests. it is most definitely worth the low asking price on steam. a must play game if you are someone who can still love a game despite it's bugginess, anyone who has played a bethesda game knows what i'm talking about, bethesda's games are epic but buggy and so is Gothic 3.

Please, ignore my gameplay hours, you will find in my post why.

Well, for the year this game was made it has great graphics, i think the best graphics for that time, please don't forget it is made in 2006 and don't forget they were forced to relase the game sooner. It is an inimaginable game for that time and I strongly suggest you to play it.

In Gothic3 you can be whatever you want, you can fight for the Orcs or for the Humans, you can be from a full thief to a hero, from a strong warrior to a smart age, you can end it in different ways, it's all about you. You have all the freedom you want, but you explore it at your own risk. You have a lot of side quests and a great main quest line. It is more action-orientated than other Gothic games because you will fight with your own army (yes, your own army!) for saving cities from enemies, etc.

I suggest you to play it's predecessors to see how much the game evolved and because the storyline continues from the end of Gothic2. For all of those saying: "I am a Gothic fan, but I don't like Gothic3!" well, then you are not a Gothic fan, why could you say something like that? Same storyline, same characters, same awesome hero, it is not Arcania, it is Gothic3, it is really good and unlike Arcania they really keep the storyline.

About the Community Patch, yes, you need it for the game to run well, but if you can play a better game, why should you complain about the Community Patch? Don't forget that the game was forced to be released sooner

I know I have a low gameplay time, because I have a really weak laptop, but I still love the game because it is simply awesome! :D

This isn't a popular opinion, but I think the Community Patch makes this the best game in the Gothic series. The end game kind of breaks down, but the journey is incredible. The cold, war-torn world of Myrtana is brutally indifferent in every way, and merit is the sole determiner of success in this harsh landscape.

It's currently $2.49 US. Buy it. A game that's been around for a long time, I have personally played the crap out of it long before I got it on STEAM. If you are dissapointed, you simply don't like open world RPG games.

Casual gamer here.
I played Gothic 3 the same time Oblivion was released. My motive for trying/buying it again was purely that it was on sale and decided to give it another crack (and that i had lost my previous CD). I thought i might choose another way to end the game (3 different yet similar endings). For those who seek a game of exploration and 'liberation' of cities without loading everytime you enter into a door, this could be the game for you (1 time game loading).
The bad.
- Story is predictable with same generic quests
- Combat gets repetitive, left click the mouse and let the monsters just die
- Characters look like tomb raider 1
The good.
- HUGE WORLD with a lot places to go and explore... some being quests others just having some epic loot
- Day and night cycles, when NPC's go to sleep and move around
- Music is actually very good.

Before playing install the Community patch and remember that a boar can kill you >.<

Thanks for reading!

Only 4 hour in, and yes, STEAM users bundle Gothic 1/2 DO NOT WORK :(

However, I am enjoying Gothic 3

Play on, kill stuff, get killed, save lots, it's like many rpgs but more fp than 3rd person compared to the likes of diablo1/2 which I love.

Not as detailed as MAngband, but ASCII isn't everyones cup of tea (newbs try Angband first as its turn based)

The first 3 hours consisted of looting villages with their residents not caring and running away from small pigs that headbutt you to death as well as monkey-goblins with sticks.

The next 3 hours contained running away from giant trolls with large sticks and orcs that you can only see from 6 metres away because of the game's render distance system.

I ran into a giant city with a forcefield around it and killed myself accidentally because I didn't realize I couldn't enter the city at all.

In this game, the deer equivalent are packs of wolves roaming together in lofting green fields, and the wolf equivalent are small pigs that can kill you in groups of 3. The wolves jump through the fields gracefully, chewing on the grass happily with their kin. The pigs however, are meat eating, campfire starting, forest lurking beasts that are an unwreckable force when there are more than 5 or 6 of them in a group.

The game is quite fun, but the only issues I have with it are the previously mentioned render distances which also affect landscapes harshly, the lack of a good tutorial system, and the fact that it still carries some bugs involving combat and movement around steep terrain.

It's an ok game.

The game worked ok for me, though when turning around as it loads the different environment it seems to lag a bit.

Combat animations are very lazy, the same sword slash motion is used when weilding a spear. Looks very strange to swing a spear in the left right slash animation, a spear should have a thrusting animation of it's own. And the weapon hitting doesn't make a sound.

Thought I didn't like the game, but I keep returning and wanting to play.

But now after 32 hours of game play the game is frustrating me, with vague quest descriptions causing me to wander in circles and then alt tabbing out of the game to do a search for how to complete quests, I end up with a black screen and crtl alt delete doesn't work and have to manually shut down after the black screen. Don't waste your time playing this. AVOID at all costs.


I'd rate the game 3/10 not a game I'd recommend. A waste of time even if it was free.

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!!!

Very nice game !! You can craft, fight, explore, swim, make friends, make enemies, upgrade your skills, do quests! You can do everything! Ok, maybe the - is the groups. I founded 1 group of orcs. And there were about 30-60 orcs ! That's just unrealistic! But i am recommending this game! I will give it 10/9!

Might be the (one of) best RPG-game I ever get to play.
A beautiful, and huge open world with a gorgeous landscape, including
all the old characters from Gothic I & II.

The fact that you're not bound to literally anything is what makes the game so different
to todays roleplay-games.
You will find yourself on the way to another city but might end up exploring the woods
and nearby caves or even the big desert part of the map, Varant -
or the snowy mountains of Northmar.

I recommend Gothic III to every RPG-gamer out there

*Yes, most people know the game was really buggy at release, but an incredible
Gothic-modding-community made a couple of patches which fix all the major issues
and make the game even more interesting
There patches are found on this website: http://www.worldofgothic.com/

This is my first serious (mind the end) and public review on Steam.

Basic Infos
Gameplay lengh: About 300-500 hours if you want to level high and see everything. 150 if you play through most content quickly.
Required skill level: Experience with RPG games and knowledge in oldschool RPGs. Studing how the game mechanics work but also keeping a cool head for hours.

Please note even if I'm merely clocking about 50 hours of it on Steam as of this review, I've already played through the game with the DRM-free version of it and it took me over a month of playing this game daily without any rushing through.

Furthermore this review has been written considering the following essential mod, depending on how you see it. It is about as detrimental for the game as the game itself.

- Gothic 3 Enhanced Edition Patch v1.75 International release

It is highly recommended that you install this patch before you play this game.

There are a couple of other mods out there that enhance this game, like the "Questpaket" version 4.2, which has English subtitles available.

About Gothic 3:
A lot of negative things can be said for a game like Gothic 3. It was released, as all releases of the Gothic series as a catastrophe. In 2006 at the time of release it was such a crash prone, bug ridden mess that almost nobody liked it, not even hardcore fans. Very similar to Gothic 1 it even was unbeatable because of the many bugs and problems. But since Piranha Bytes has a strong bond between them and the fanbase, they dicided to handle things over to the community. While some might argue that this is a rather lazy way of developing a game, a lot of others believe that the fans certainly knew for the best, sonsidering the unreasonably strict timeline publisher JoWood inflicted on Pyranha Bytes. After over 3 years of patching and care-taking, this game was finally able to become the greatness as envisioned by the developers but also the fans. It's considered the definite version of the game.

You also don't need to play through Gothic 1 and 2 in order to understand this games backstory. However, it can answer a lot of questions regarding the world, the Hero himself and his way to handle prople. Still, if you take your time reading through hundreds of pages of dialogues alone you can quickly grasps what happened around you.

Gameplay:
Gameplay-wise this game has the typical Hack and Slash action formula with the twist of also adding role playing elements in a different way as people knew already from previous Gothic games. Imagine a Game like Diablo with the freedom from games like Fallout but in third person, and you get what Gothic 3 is supposed to be. That might be the best way to describe this game.

The main theme of this game can also be considered its main gameplay aspect, and that is the theme of freedom both in the storyline and gameplay-wise you'll find yourself in a world that doesn't explain much to you. Because of that you should properly always think about focusing your skills so you can live an easy life and Gothic typicaly this game is anything but easy.

For instance and without spoilering of course there are quests in which the player has to defeat hundreds upon hundreds of enemies with the help of maybe one Non Player Character. Quests can range from simple "Kill this Person or this Monster" and fetch quests, to whole adventures based on exploration. Even non Gothic fans know about the infamous "Where is the Guro?" questline that only people who truely enjoy exploration found as it's entirely optional regarding the entire game itself and the reward is to travel throughout the game while finding interesting and secret things. This doesn't mean that this game is boring, as Hacking and Slashing is the main focus and leveling up itself offers so many options to choose from.

To give a few examples, there are 39 spells to choose from, and there are 23 passive skills to learn just for doing physical attacks or to defend yourself and there are much more different skills ranging from smithing, to stealing from someones pocket. All of them need learning points and you get 10 of them with each level up and while this sounds simple it merely gives you free room so you tackle the immense hordes of hundreds of enemies in the middle game.

The Gothic series is known to be very challenging and hardcore games and the third incarnation is no exception from this. Almost all of the several hundred Quests are available from the start of the game where the only true requirement is to find them if the player chooses to wander around looking for important "named" Non Player Characters. It has to be noted that this game is totally MASSIVE. Apart from MMORPGs, most single player games don't come close to this in scale. This can be intimidating for newcomers of the genre, as there is no fast travel or any form of help other than a compass. It takes about an hour to walk from the lower left to the upper right corner of the entire game. About 40 minutes if you choose to run (about twice as fast as walking) and wait for the stamina to replenish.

As you can walk to almost every place right after the start of the game and due to the freedom of this game it's totally up to you on how to handle things entriely your own way. However, with this freedom a lot of considerable mistakes are bound to happen. As the Hero shapens the way you can desire to choose whatever you want so it's recommended to always think about your next step, like what you would like to skill next or if you really want to follow a specific quest.

I haven't yet tackeled the general setting, but thats just because that this game is focusing on hardcore hack and slash gameplay that even hundreds of quests aren't exactly this eye-catching. The premise goes like this, you either join up with either the Orcs or Humans and kill those who are in charge, of this entire ordeal. As every NPC is killable right from the start, it's up to you to kill EVERYONE, or follow the rules as set up in the beginning of the game. This may sound simple in paper but believe me its far from it, as you need careful planning to archive the main goals of this game.

Graphics and Sound:
Graphically this game was amongst the prettiest in 2006 and as it actually stood the test of time says a lot about its graphical fidelity. To be honest the grass landscape of Myrtana alone looks almost as good as Skyrims and considering the age and budget gap of both games I believe thats surely an achievement.

In terms of sound however, this is one of the best games for the PC, ever. Seriously, if you even just enjoy good music you have to get this game right now. Kai Rozenkranz is a genius when it comes to creating atmospheric music that fits spot on into the game. However, there is one song that stands out negatively and thats the Battle music. It's always the same theme when you're fighting a usual enemy and after a few hundred hours this may get on your nerves. This is forgotten when the player finally reaches the city of Ishtar, where argueably the best music in the entire game plays and you'll find yourself again after spending hours upon hours of your free time into this game without noticing that it's dark outside already, in the real world of course.

Verdict:
Gothic 3 is a very ambitioned game and I believe that its too bad the project was cut short for release due to the old publisher. With the user created patches and mods mentioned above however I believe that this might be one of those games that will stay fun even after decades to come. I highly recommend everyone to buy this game when a Steamsale comes along if you're still not sure if this game might be of interest to you. If you think this game is interesting and you enjoy huge in scale RPGs with an oldschool soul, get this now.

This has got to be my favorite of the series released so far. It's the original Piranha Bytes and not Jowood's repurposed attached naming Arcania, nor their butchered works of Gothic 3 Forsaken Gods. Most would prefer of the series the Gothic 2 as their favorite, but I prefer Gothic 3 for its community patches, content packs, and revised combat system, that makes use of button combinations for different attacks, of parry, reposte, slash, poke, and kill shots, as well, for a game that came out nearly a decade ago, it can still push a system, due to its complete open world nature, and openGL based engine. For that reason, I still use it for testing systems max volume decibel level on fans of gpus. This game has gotten better with age, and it shows with special thanks to an active community of content refiners. I look forward to and have high hopes of the return to Myrtania in the next true Gothic named sequel with Piranha Bytes at the helm again. This series holds a special place in my heart, and the soundtrack is masterfully written, and captures the scale and variety of locales. With a lot of voice acting, multiple ways to play, and freedom to go wherever you wish, this game has managed to keep me occupied full of episodic gameplay that I can pick up and put down whenever I like. This is truly a game I would love to see how much better it could look, if it got a remastering or High resolution facelift as it would still be worth buying for the 6th time. If you like action rpgs that give you the ability to be in 3rd person, 3\4 view, and first person view with a plethora of myth and lore to boot, you owe it to yourself to give this game, and franchise a try.
