Recenze

Arcania: Gothic IV is looking like a game that would entice even the most jaded, over-Oblivioned Crust-Dwarf into a long, deep, immersive session of RPG adventure. – Gamerevolution 06/2010

The team definitely has a keen eye for their audience of established and prospective players. – RPG fan 06/2010

I played this game for 19 hours because I really wanted to enjoy it.
First of all, I wanted to like it because I'm a fan of first 3 parts of Gothic. Let's say it straight, this is different game, don't expect fourth part of Gothic. Some elements are similar, but general feeling is: this is different game.
So in the next step I tried to enjoy it as RPG game. If game is different than Gothic, that doesn't mean it's a bad game, right? So in that situation it is not true. This game is bad. Some elements, like graphics and music are quite nice, but generally game is just bad. Main story is totally linear, you can't go wherever you want. World is divided to small parts and you have to explore them one by one, you can't encounter a lot stronger monsters than you.
I love RPGs, but this game didn't sucked me. I didn't feel that I explore the world I want to explore. I didn't feel I'm a part of adventure, I want to be part of.

VERDICT:
If you're a fan of Piranha Bytes games, save yourself the disappointment.
If you're a fan of good RPG games, there are many better games out there.
If you finished all RPGs and you need to play it, be prepared to collecting the honey in one of most stupid quests. So if you like winnie the Pooh, go ahead, this game is made for you.

- same dungeons all the time

Hello. Are you interested in buying this game ? Let me tell you about this game. This game is not worth your time and money. This game starts you off as a shepherd (not THE shepherd) and has you trying to woo your girlfriend on some island. This game will then do what any game does to ruin the good mood and send you away on a journey for revenge.
All the story progress in this game is just for the sake of getting your revenge. Remember that, when you slug through the chapters, hoping for a cool story.

This game lets you decide on how to play it by offering you all the options : Melee, Ranged and Magic. The overly simplistic and lame skill-tree requires tough decision making from you. +1% mana and +1% mana regen or rather +1% stamina and +1% stamina regen...or maybe +1% ranged damage and +1% mana regen ? The choices...Eventually you might also reach one of the maybe 10 new skills..I say new, but in the end they just change the skill you already have to something better, like giving you a power bash or letting you combo more attacks...meh.

This game is kinda separated into different hubs, where the actual chapter is being played. As soon as you finish one, you basically move onward to the next hub area. This game is technically an open world game, but you don't have any necessity to ever venture back to the places you've already been to and instead keep following a linear route to your goal. This game sports acceptable environmental graphics, but butt-ugly character models. This game also features some of the most laid back casual combat ever. This game is hardly a challenge on normal difficulty and at least your progress will be steady..combat wise..

This game however does have a major flaw, which will most likely make you quit rather sooner than later :
THIS GAME HAS NO QUEST MARKERS. This game will just tell you to find an item/person in the east/west/north/south of where you accept the quest and then has you run around the place trying to find the item/person without any sort of indication. Even worse, this game often has the habit of only spawning the item/person you are looking for once you accepted the quest to do so. That means you can run all over the map in advance, explore everything possible and then have to do it all over again after accepting some random "HEY, FIND THIS CHEST IN THAT CAVE WHICH NOW EXISTS BUT DIDN'T BEFORE". This game will then commence laughing at you, until you open google after an hour to just look up where the item/person is, that you're looking for.

This game incorporates very boring and bland dialogue as well, which often makes you feel as if you're just playing some random mmo. Nothing in this game will make you feel involved with the world, mostly because the world itself is such a boring, empty yet quite spacy place..still very empty though..too empty even..way too empty..not enemy wise..quite a few enemies...but otherwise very empty.
This game has no redeeming qualities at all. Even the lockpicking system is really irritating with its required timing. This game does allow you to craft, but thats just reading a recipe, press "C" , select the thing and click the "craft" button.
This review is already way too long for this game, so let me tell you once again that this game is really not worth it.
This game, which I have played for 10 hours, is not recommended :P

I Really enjoyed this game, It's not a blockbuster and I have never played any of the previous titles, But you get a compelling romp around a good looking world with most dialogue being voiced, The graphics are very good and the rain effect is one of the best I have seen with water running on the ground and your avatar, The combat is ok, and you can switch at will to ranged and melee though I stuck to sword and shield, Dodge is your friend and makes fighting foes fun, But it's not Dark souls and remains rather shallow. If you want a cheap 10 hours enetertainment then this could be it, It's not the complexity of Skrim etc but it delivers on story and enjoyment. Look for the version with the expansion pack.

Overall, I think it is a good continuation of the Gothic story. It was good to see again the old faces. This game however is fundamentally different then it's predecessors, so you have to set your expectations right. The story is rather interesting, but very linear. It does not have the same feeling of exploration as the previous ones, rather, feels like a dungeon crawl, where you clear an area, and move on to the next.

There is one great downside of the game though, and that's stability. I've played it on Windows 8, and after fiddling with the compatibility, and setting the sound quality on the system to 24 bit 48k sampling (both are recommended and helps a bit), it was mostly playable, but still frequently crashed. I recommend saving often.

I still think it's a decent game, worth trying if you liked the previous ones, but does not have much replay value.

Horrible. The teleport system works from A to B and back but not B to C or farther. The load times on it take just as long as it would to walk. Quests and map flow are uninspiring. Theres very little to keep players attached to the game.

Great game.
Eventhough it is old it looks great and is fun to play.
Played all off the other games in the serie as well and loved them all and same for this one.
If you can just get it for a couple of euro's when on sale you should buy this!!!!
9/10

No,po pravdě nic moc.

Dojel jsem to se zaťatými zuby až do konce primárně jako lukostřelec a jako takového mne tam nejvíce štvaly změny počasí.Přes stěnu deště nejde kolikrát pořádně zamířit na větší vzdálenost a když si do toho přiberete mlhu (ta je dokonce i v někerých dungeonech) tak opravdu není o co stát.Jako bojovník s mečem máte rozhodně víc šancí na úspěch,teda pokud se vám neomrzí neustále klikání do jednoho tlačítka myši.
AI je neuvěřitelně neinteligentní a velice často se mi stávalo (v těch řídkých případech,kdy se mi podařilo střílet na opravdu velkou vzdálenost),že se těsně předemnou zastavila a vracela zpět na původní místo (což jsem jako nepochopil proč,ale dá se toho docela dobře zneužívat),jen tak mimochodem při cestě zpět je šípy absolutně nezranitelná.Několikrát se mi rovněž stalo,že šípy prostě mizely v potvoře bez dmg,jako by jí doslova prolétly (dělá to u golemů a ještěrů u ostatních (téměř vůbec,ale pár krát ano) jsem,dejme tomu,špatně mířil).
Nevim,ale namluvení dialogů se mi zdá takové nějaké umělé.To,že slova velice často vůbec nesedí s animací bych ještě přešel,ale intonace je opravdu uširvoucí (kromě hlavní postavy a orků (skřetů),to je namluveno kupodivu uvěřitelně).Mám z ní pocit jako když nováček na škole herectví ujede a začně silně tzv. "přehrávat".Některé postavy jedou do fistule,jiné pro změnu uměle huhlají atp.Škoda,obsah dialogů totiž nepatří k nejhorším.

Je velká škoda,že jinak vcelku zajímavý příběh,vývojáři pokazili tak odfláknutým zpracováním.Pokud se hra vyskytne ve slevě s cenou pod 5euro vyzkoušeje,ale za víc rozhodně nestojí.

Jakožto neznalec Gothic série nemůžu soudit. Mně se to líbilo. Je to sice občas trochu nudné a nezajímavé, ale i tak se mi to poměrně líbilo. Ale žádná slává.

Hra naprosto zabugovaná, grafické prostředí je hrozně přesvícené pro iluzi kvalitních textur, oproti předchozím Gothicům velice snadná, nezáživná a nezábavná. Nedoporučuji.

This is one of the most disappointing games I've ever played. I was looking forward to this as a Gothic fan (on it's release it was called ArcaniA: Gothic IV or ArcaniA a gothic tale because it was supposed to be the next gothic game). It's supposed to be an open world RPG but it's more like a liniar bad hack n' slash game with level progression. basicly this is what the game is: after you finish the intro (which is the only fun part of the game) you get to a tiny part of the island, you do a part of the main quest and you unlock another tiny part of the island where you can do another part of the main quest and you unlock another tiny part of the island and so on untill the final battle. And than it's game over, no more exploring for no reason at all. the main quest is boring, there are only a few side quests which are even worse than the main quest. characters are boring and not memoreble at all, even the characters from Gothic 1, 2, and 3 and exploring is rarely rewarding, not that there is much to explore as most of the remotely interesting sites are used for the main quest. if you played the demo and liked it keep it that way the demo covers by far the best part of the game.

ArcaniA a gothic fail scores a 3/10

Far into the game as I write this. Eventually the desire to continue wanes when immersion is broken due to the callousness to which this RPG as been constructed. Speaking directly to Spellbound Entertainment, I really couldn't care less what your budget is and I don't care about the perilous finances of your now bankrupt publisher. When you undertake a project like this and dress it with the same repeating carbon copy npc's then you have no right to undertake such a project. It's a crime against the art of game development and shows no respect for your audience.

I really want to continue. I like what's here despite the meaningless "RPG elements" and the damn crafting icon staring at me the entire play through. Go watch a movie with the same character playing 20 different roles each dubbed with a different voice.

At this point in the game's narrative I should be fully immersed in the world of Arcania but you Spellbound Entertainment have completely ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ my immersion. I'm walking out of the theater now. There weren't that many here to start. Something about the title and the game not living up to it's legacy. The naysayers were right and I a fool for not listening.

...so being somewhere half way through the game I remember thinking: " who am I gonna recommend this game to in my review?" I thought of this game as a "game of missed opportunities" but getting through the end game grind, final boos fight and enduring the countless fillers I finally found my answer: I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS GAME TO ANYONE!!!
Arcania is a bad game and even though the world is nice and graphics is still decent 4 years later there are just not enough good things to actually ask anyone to endure this!
World is very small and with limited access, quests are extremely linear where you have to do chains of quests to access a location x only to be used by npc x and forced to do things XYZ.
This game would be compared to Gothic 3 or Risen but short answer is: it DOES NOT compary to either one of them at all!

PROS:
- beautiful world
- good graphics
- good evade system

CONS:
- mindless button mashing combat - no skill whatsoever
- low difficulty (havent used a potion till mid game)
- HORRIBLE fillers towards end game
- BOOOORING end boss fight (like most end boses but this one takes the cake)
- WORST ENDING EVER?
- boring, linear quests
- bad voice acting

Up till yesterday I thought I will give the short expansion a try but after finally finishing this game I do not want to have anything to do with it anymore...

2/10 - avoid !!!

ArcaniA – Gothic 4 is a mediocre RPG that is mildly amusing, addictive, and simply boring all rolled into one. Its a semi-open world where you have to unlock the next area by completing certain objectives. The hero a boy from Feshyr a simple shepard and I mean simple. This is one game that truly could have been an OUTSTANDING game. The hero he lacked substance and didn't grow he was still the simple ignorant, and dumb shepard from Freshyr. If you are a hardcore RPG fan this game might be for you. It does have some really good parts and the story has so much more to offer then it did. Mind numbing questing everyone in the game just takes advantage of the main hero (honestly after 25 hours of game play I couldn't tell you his name). I need to find this will you help me? Yes but you have to do this first? OK I accomplished the task. NO you tricked me or What I have do one more thing. The repetitiveness of the same quest just a different location hurt this game more then anything. The game mechanics on fighting were good. On the other hand the enemy’s repeated there attacks in the same order over and over again just like the weather dusk, morning, afternoon evening all sunny. Then night calm, lets say midnight rain, then dusk it stops and repeats the order. That’s all the game does really is repeat its self over and over. The graphics are descent the endless invincible walls not so much. I don't personally like to give a bad review because the designers of the games we love to play, put so much time and effort into them but this is one game had the possibility to offer so much more and falls short by a long haul in my opinion. It feels like they had a good a vision for the game but couldn't fulfill or even do it justice on what they envisioned. One of the most notable parts of the game was the voice actor David Lodge. He was known for his voice role as Kenpachi Zaraki in Bleach and the role of Jiraiya in Naruto. Winstan a NPC that has only a few lines in the game

This game is trash, from the horrible story line, to the horrible voice acting, to the horrible DRM

Seriously, I came back to this game after a few months to see if they had done anything to the game and I couldnt install it again because My hardware had changed and my registered copy was on another set of hardware. IE different hard drive...

I've had better luck reactivating a system builder version of Windows. At least with them you call them and be like my motherboard fried had to replace it. They give you a code right away.

After playing the game I really was trying to figure out what they went to great lengths to protect. It was because their game was garbage, it didnt turn out the way they thought it was going to, and they didnt want anyone pirating it to get a free first look, because they knew they wouldnt buy it after trying it. Every review on steam has between .2 - 20 hours, with 20 hours being the outliar.

This is not a gothic game. If for some reason you played the gothic series and you are here looking at this review so long after not knowing much about this game, take it from a gothic fan, don't buy this trash.

I really tried to get into this game but I gave up. It's terribly boring and consists mostly of running around the coutryside. If you loved Gothic 2 and disliked Gothic 3 for what it became know this: I played through Gothic 3 and even liked some bits but this game is even worse, just plain annoying, generic and void of details, lacking any redeeming factor. It's ok for a few hours then you realize you'll be backtracking many more days of your life away if you continue playing and just quit.

Overall a mediocre game. Tons of minor graphical glitches and odd dialogue hiccups. The combat is so-so, not too exciting but not difficult. The talent tree is very lacking, especially if you want to play a Ranger/Bow class.

The story is pretty shallow and doesn't make a whole lot of sense at times. The ending actually angered me with how abrupt and anticlimactic it was.

If you're looking for an RPG to kill some time, go right ahead but if you're looking for a true RPG experience, don't waste your time.
