Back in 2001, a wonderful RPG named Gothic 1 hit the markets. It’s truly an open world adventure that has absolutely no hand holding. Brutal yet fair, it’s not for everyone. Personally, I enjoyed the game despite its weird user-interface. Yet in hindsight, it actually served well enough as, in parts, can be quite immersive. Two years later, and to my surprise, Gothic 2 hit the markets. This game took all the strengths of Gothic 1 and enhanced it a hundred times – so much it makes Gothic 1 looks like a tech demo. Yet there are some slight weaknesses like the user interface however it’s minor comparing to what the game can offer overall.

Depending what you want from this game determines the length of time to complete. For me, I tried to complete everything possible from picking up every plant to completing all of the quests possible. Even I used to walk option to explore any new areas so it took me around 100 plus hours to complete all six chapters. And the beauty of this is that, the game had a really decent pace to it – other words, it didn’t feel like a chore at all. That said, Gothic 2 is a game that RPG players will be proud of. It has all the elements of a proper RPG ranging from interacting to combat to exploration. The UI still needs tailoring however, after a little practice, it’s passible and won’t cause too much grief. An absolute must for any lovers of RPGs yet newcomers will find this a little too daunting.

Dont be fooled by my playtime, i finished this game 10 times or more, playing on non steam version.
Basicly, this game is better version of Gothic I, so if you liked it, dont waste time reading this and buy this game.
Story is a sequel to Gothic I, after defeating Sleeper, and destroying Barrier you must now defeat dragons summoned by Sleeper.
  • World is much bigger than in Gothic I, its whole Khorinis island, with main part, Valley of Mines, and, thanks to Night of Raven addon, mysterious Jarkendar.
  • Fighting system is improved much.
  • Atmospher is superb again, and characters are realistic and memorable.
  • Three guilds to choose from: Paladins,Merceneries and Fire Mages.
If you are cRPG fan, you must play this game, for me its the best game of all time!

Gothic 2 is a masterpiece that aged incredibly well. The very first city you arrive at still feels vibrant and real, the characters (at least the male ones) are superbly done with believable motivations and actions.

It's a child of its age - there's nearly no strong female characters, the men go out and fight beasts while the womanfolk stay at home to raise the kids and cook, and the monsters (with the exception of dragons) are there to be slain, and not talked with.

Despite its age, and despite these misgivings, it took until the Witcher 3's release this year to provide a game that matches the immersion and believability of Gothic 2.

Play it. You'll quickly get used to the graphics and the controls, and you will not regret it.

One of my most favoured games ever. I grew up with this game, like back then I now still love the game. It is not only nostalgia which makes me praise this game but the lively world. The memorable characters with their voices, actions and characteristics are something what not every game can offer. The atmosphere of the whole world is unique and never gets boring, as you wander through dark dungeons or peasants fields. Every place offers new persons to speak with, quests to aquire, monsters to slay and equipment to find. Most quests are designed thoughtfully and always have a story behind. Rarely you will find a quest which requires to bring X to Y. If it is the case then you will still enjoy it, as you enjoy the atmospheric environs. The game contains many kinds of weapons, from swords to crossbows, and many consumable items. Every character in the game has some kind of disposition and ethos, they react if you steal them, hit them or betray them to the milita. So you have to be careful what you do. In addition, the soundtrack of this game is marvellous and never gets boring, no matter how often I listen to it.

I have spent many hours with this game and appreciate its atmosphere and complex world everytime.

Furthermore I want to mention the level of difficulty of the game. I can understand that this game is difficult to master for players new to RPGs. Additionally the partly clumsy controls do not make it easier to survive, but I bid everyone to give the game a try. It just takes a bit time to understand the mechanics and to get used to the controls.

I love this game. It takes me to another world. A world which seems to be better. I feel I belong here. But I always walk back into this existence
