this is a classic staple in how to make a good open world action rpg that has sandbox qualities. in that it gives you quests tells you where they can be completed ( in a manner) and you can go do it or you can wreck the guy who asked you to do it then wreck his family convince the orcs your a 'boss to be reckoned with' and team up with that bad guys and really do whatever you like.
i followed the quests and took out each stroing hold as i came a cross one at a time and found id made a name for myself
now the orcs attack on site.
its just wonderful how the game reacts to your decissions very enjoyable, yet challenging combat.
one of the best arpg s around.
(just a side note this game works pergfectly on my asus rog laptop and alienware x51 pc, however i found that gothic 2 and 1 dont work passed the main screen be ware if buying on modern pc windows 7)

Imagine that you order a kebab with lamb meat and spicy sause but instead you get an old slice of bread with ketchup splattered on it. When you complain, you hear: "tough luck, because I just quitted this job. What you gonna do now, sucker?" That's how it is to play Gothic 3.
The game is awful, even with Community Patch. Most of it is unfinished and/or broken. You killed an undead dragon? Well, that was on Khorinis. On the mainland even a simple wolf is stronger than you. A "cowardly" goblin with a pointed stick will ignore your shield parry and send you flying on a parabolic arc, because reasons. the fighting system is much worse than in previous games of the series. I reached level 17 and still the only thing that couldn't kill me in literally 5 seconds was a hare. Technical issues? Long loading times plus 90% chance of game crashing to desktop after loading a save. Foliage flickering like a disco ball (inducing headaches) or disappearing completely. Textures disappearing. Graphical glitches forcing you to save and load (and pray for not getting another crash). Unjustified fps drops. Music stopping playing abruptly to start playing again- for 5 seconds.
Other things: bad dialogs and voice acting. Ugly creature and NPC models (why shadowbeast suddenly got 2 meter long spikes on it's back??). Rather dull quests. The plot itself is simply not engrossing. In 13 hours of gameplay nobody asked me "what do you thing about it?"- only: go there, do that, tell me when you're ready.
Just forget about this game.

One of my favourites of all time for more than a decade! Great open world exploration, epic loot and tons of quests will keep you busy for weeks or even months, depending on your pace. Don't worry to much about the controls in the early game, it is getting better as you level up and improve your skills. With the outstanding work that has been done with the community patch, this game is now playable as it was supposed to be. An engaging storyline provides room for personal decisions, the characters are tough, rough and being so rather amusing.

Wenn ihr Deutsch versteht, dann könnt ihr auch mit Community Patch auf Deutsch umschalten, bzw. die deutsche Tonspur runterladen über die Prefs in eurer Library-Liste auf Steam. Sehr empfehlenswert, weil nur auf Deutsch ungefiltert geflucht wird. Göttlich!

Pretty sure this game is just poorly developed. The gameplay is outstandingly garbage, and the environment is disgustingly bland, with little to no life in it. If this was trying to compete with Oblivion, it's pretty obvious that Oblivion is the winner for an open world fantasy game. I don't have very many hours in this game, but I don't think it's necessary to put any more in to see what a complete failure it is.

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.

>> Become lvl 55 Paladin of King Rhobar II, liberator of Myrtana, champion of Nordmar, Scourge of Orcs, Messiah of Nomads
>> Literally so powerful you could take on entire armies on your own armed with a stick
>> Ok lets do something completely different
>> Go boar hunting
>> Spot 2 them in a forest about 30 m from me
>> Charge!
>>??
>> Get utterly obliterated by the superior master race boar tusks of doom and apocalipse
>> 10/10 would go boar hunting again, and they say Dark Souls is hard

I´ve played Gothic 1 years ago and hence the many negative reviews that followed G3 and Arcania at their release gave the complete collection a try. I have to say: G3 (with the MASTERPIECE of a community patch!) is a very good game. Yes, it has a clunky battle system and you absolutely HAVE to be a wanderer to find what you need to complete quests (Map is... well, Gothic-like: no quest markers, only markers for main cities and villages) and YES you need your time to get good in something, but imo it´s totally worth it.

There are 3 landscapes to explore, each with new enemies (despite Orcs) and complete new locations, you can cooperate or fight with 6 factions, gather raw materials for smithing and brew potions and there is hidden treasure everywhere. The overall story is quite generic sometimes, but it keeps you looking for answers.

If you are a fan of Gothic and Risen it´s well worth your money, even if it is not casual friendly at times.

One of my favourites, as I play it again on Steam. Though G3 is buggy as hell, but still very enjoyable game after all. I downloaded patch 1.5 and the game is not buggy anymore.
I spotted flickering and lagging in game, though I have better computer than ever, seems like the game is not compatible well and the performance jumps from smooth to laggy.
To rate Gothic 3 I will give it 4 of 5 stars. Open world with many beasts to kill, many quests, towns and hideouts. Dialogues are somehow all right, enemy fights are sometimes frustrating, sometimes they get stuck on some object so you can snipe them off. I recommend to play this on easy, as hard is only different in spending more time with more HP pool of enemies but the play style does not change, you only need to put more exp into skills before going in battle with some enemies.
To add, the game is worth the money (10€), though its downfalls do not make it best game, but I can still enjoy it more than most trash games just grabbing money and no content whatsoever. G3 has a lot of content in it, though sometimes seems not finished.
It is really open world, I tried to travel to far edges of map, but there are no plants, beasts or chests, sometimes not even trees and flora. So the game is kind of linear in that way, you will gain very little by travelling all over the map. But sometimes you find the strong beasts nearer to edges hidden before humans and one very important character. Look for the edge of n. 3 on the map and you will find him.
It seems there are 3 possible endings. After 80 hours of fru..., ehm, fun I finally got the items I needed for finishing the game though that was the first I needed walkthrough video only because I was not focused on looking into every chest in the marked place.
