Reviews

"The folks at Piranha Bytes have done it again. I remember hearing all sorts of good reviews of Gothic I but whatever that game was, Gothic 2 is that and more." - Just-RPG, 97%
"The game is very good in what it does. It lets the player experience a fantasy story in a seamless medieval 3D world. This world is unique in its combination of details, believable NPCs and freedom of exploration." - RPGDot.com, 91%
"This really is a game you can lose yourself in because it really is enjoyable to just run around the countryside being chased by dangerous monsters, stumbling across hidden pirate treasures, battling it out with trolls, and basically seeking fame and fortune." - Gamershell.com, 92%

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

One of the best RPG I ever played.
It manages to let you have a great adventure very well by offering you an intresting and fully interactive world. One of the best features in my mind that Gothic Series especially Gothic 2 have are the NPC. They don't feel like they are just there for a quest, but rather are a part of the living world. Things happen to them too, while you experience your adventure. Some of them even guide you in this adventure by trading with you, fighting by your side, even training you and just sharing usefull information. This is strongly supported by the great level design, while it is open to you it has many interesting places and characters for you to find, but also traps and obstacles to avoid. All this is laid with an challenging, but fair difficulty.
I have played this game four times now and I had a blast every time!

No one will read this review, because the game's old, but I've been really into this old gem, and wanted to give it some love.

This is the best openworld RPG I've ever played, and I've played damn near all of them. (New Vegas might come close, but is crippled by Bethesda's idiotic VATs combat.)

The game's heart is driven by a well balanced progression that feels really damn good. The satisfaction of growing from an unknown, unliked hero who runs away from wolves to a master swordsman who slays mighty beasts has never been captured so well. Sure, every game does it, but here, you feel that change viscerally, and it's damn satisfying. Starting the game not as the Savior of Mankind but a hopeless wimp might rub some people the wrong way but I can't get enough of that sort of thing.

I also very much enjoyed the main city. Very convincing as a living place. Damn near every person you meet has something going on. You could easily spend five hours getting things done in the first city alone.

The map is huge, and rewards exploration, and while games like Oblivion might also offer that, here your exploration is lended a sizable amount of tension, as you never know what might be lurking around the corner ready to tear your head off, or what treasures you might find.

Another thing I found well considered is that each piece of gear carries a significant amount of weight. Though you may only wear a few sets of armor throughout the game, getting that first upgraded fills you with a sort of glee as you start to imagine all those difficult places you may now be able to explore. It also adds a certain element of realism to the entire experience, which aids in the immersion, which is nice in a game like this.

Choice and consequence isn't a huge part of the game, but in choosing who you ally with, there is plenty enough of that, if that's something you worry about. And many quests do give you at least one or two minor options in how you complete it.

The plot and writing aren't anything special, but the intaraction between all the guilds and your hero is well done, and it's perfect for a game like this, where your only wish is to be left alone as you run all over the map. The voice acting is stellar. Bad, but in a way that knows it's bad. So it's good!

The game obviously isn't terribly pretty, and it can be hard getting it to run on new operating systems (check the guides), but if this is your jam, then you better make some toast, because Gothic 2 is a big delicious helping of open world goodness!

6/10 IGN GOTY!!!

No, but seriously, guys. It's pretty good.
