This is my all time favourite game. It's everything I love about RPG's - the freedom, the story, the impact you can make and the interactions with others (NPC's).

Pros:

+ Great story line, that continues the adventures of our nameless hero from Gothic 1 and Gothic 2, but the game has dialogs for people who are not fammiliar with the first two games. If you meet someone from the previous games, they will remember you, but you can ask them who tey are and usually with a whitty remark, they will remind you how you know them.

+ It's an RPG, so you have your standart RPG elements:

* You do quests, kill monsters, gain experience, level up, earn learning points and use them to learn a bunch of skills, like Hunting, Blacksmithing, Thievery, Alchemy, Magic (Anchient knowledge).

* Each set of skills has it's own attributes, like Hunting has archery, improved archery and master archery. Learning points can also be used to increase your hitpoints, stamina or mana.

* Wide vierity of weapons, also magic can be used in combat.

* You can make your own weapons, potions and food.

+ Open world. You can go where ever you want and do what ever you want (be ware of consequenses, some monsters are strong as hell and will kick your beginer ♥♥♥).

+ Three different lands with different climate, different people, different culture and seperate stories that in one way or another intertwine.

+ You can beat up who ever you want (assuming you are skilled enough) and you can kill who ever you want (if you can bet them up or if you've learned Assasination).

+ If you start a fight in a town that doesn't know you and isn't friendly, others will kick your ♥♥♥ (unless you can kick all of their ases :D ). Towns have rules - no fighting (unless you are well known :D)

+ After you've beaten up someone and knocked them down, you can take their weapon and rob them.

+ If you steal something in a town people will start to suspect you, You can try to talk your way out, but they might or might not fall for that. IF they see you stealing, be prepared to fight.

+ If someone sees you killing someone in a town - be prepared to fight. If only one person saw you, you can kill him and get away with it, though others might suspect you're to blame, but just as with stealing, you can try to talk your way out of it. If a lot of people saw you, then you'll have to fight all the people in town.

+ Friends will join your fights and will support you. If you fight a friend, however, others will cheer. :D

+ You can pick sides. What will you choose. Who will you help. - it's up to you.

+ There are a lot of quests and a lot of different mods.

+ Open ending. The main story gives you a choice on how you'll end the game. And your choice along with your other actions and choices, will determan what future will look like.

+ The game has one of the best gaming community and a Community Patch Team that has releaset the latest and final patch 1.75 that makes the game work and look a lot better. With the patch, you won't be able to tell that the game is so old.

+ The game has mods.

+ The game has some surpises, like hidden diaries that tell a story no NPC knows.


Cons:

- Your decisions have consequences. This is a good thing, but it can actually ruin the game for you, if you did something and you don't know how it will impact the game. For example if you liberate too many towns before you do all the quests for them, the town head will attack you and you'll loose dialogs and some quests.

- It's a massive game and if you wan't to play it as best as you possibly can, you need to know a lot of stuff. This includes who to kill and who to spare and when, where to look for items etc.

- Dialogs are important. This is nothing new and should be a norm, but sometimes gamers just like to skip dialogs and go kill beasts for no reason, but still get paid for it :D and in oh so many cases dialogs explain what and where you must do to finnish the quest, so skipping dialogs is unadwised. Luckily Quest log shows you the important parts of the dialog.

- At times you will need google to help you with quests. There are quests that conterdict each other and you'll have to choose who's side will you take.

- Some english voice acting is not the best. Other languages have it better.
