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 have to say, this is one of the most beautiful RPG games I've ever experienced, it definetly earns it's place at the top with TES and other great games of the genre, it's just a shame it never had such a big communtiy and not many people know about it.

If you're an hardcore RPG fan, then this is a game for you. It offers countless hours of gameplay, lot's of sidequests and plenty of things to do besides that, from picking berries in the woods to hunting orcs and other critters in the vast open world filled with forests and grasslands. Appart from the great story, the game has one of the most enjoyable combat systems and exploration features.

Another thing to mention is the music which also perfectly fits in with the theme and creates an even deeper atmosphere to delve in, however this game isn't for everyone, the combat can be sometimes found tricky and making money hard, but most players get used to it quickly.

This is a must-have if you're an old-school RPG fan, 10/10

Gothic II is a gigantic game in a small world. The trick that the devs pulled to make the game seem so enormous was to make use of absolutely every nook and cranny on the map. Most of these places aren't even relevant to the main story; you can plow through the game several times over and still stumble across something new hidden in an easily missed gap between rocks or behind a waterfall at the bottom of a deep valley. Since the game doesn't throw powerful items or experience at you like lots of the loot-fest RPGs out there, the (usually) small rewards secreted away across the island are always satisfying to discover. This and the fact that the game is largely loading screen- and objective marker-free makes the whole world feel alive and supremely explorable. Just be careful; the game will hold your hand for a grand total of five seconds before booting you into a world where all of the local fauna have it out for you and will absolutely WRECK you if you aren't familiar with the somewhat clunky combat system. It gets easier later on but the challenge is always there. Don't be scared though; the danger just makes exploring that much more rewarding.

I can't decide whether Gothic I or Gothic II is the better game. Anyway, it's one of the best RPG's and worths playing multiple times. The graphics are fine considering this game is from 2002. It has a stunning open world, a well written story and again is just as amazing as Gothic I.

Gothic III lost quite a bit of the series' charm and we don't talk about Gothic IV here. Even worse. Also both Risen games are no match for this master piece.

If you love RPG's, and like to explore every corner of the open world, reach places that seem unreachable, collect everything you can find, save and load to find the most experince and amusement rewarding options - this is the game for you. On the collector's side - it has unlimited inventory, so you don't have to bother to double back to your chests every now and then. The plot is straitforward, but, nonetheless, interesting. There are three portions of the island, you can explore(on of which should be familiar to those who played the original Gothic), with dozens of NPCs and quests, hundreds of monsters, and thousands of stuff lying around or hidden to be found by curious players. Have fun, Chosen of the Gods, Khorinis is waiting...

P.S. I recommend IronKeep Comunity patch 2.41 with "alternative balancing" (which is realy a few minor fixes), but wihout the textures. For texture pack - Gothic 2 Graphics Overhaul - and it looks much better and modern.

Good game, but do not buy it for Steam. Application errors and "access violations" up the ♥♥♥. Save yourself the headache and get the Gothic series from GOG.
