Overall 6/10 not a bad game needed 19 hours to finish.The story is intresting but the gameplay and and combat system sucks.Crafting system sucks.And at the end some missions are really boring.Only buy if you are a fan of the Gothic series.

Ooh Great,GOTHIC 4! Time for some dark heavy clouds and high proud castles and wilderness exploration!

Why am i nonchalantly slaying generic skeletons in a poorly made generic dungeon? Oh well, thank god was intro sequence.

Ok now, WHY I HAVE TO CARE ABOUT MY ANGRY FATHER IN LAW? Who is this woman i am suppesed to care about and go to a fetch quest for her love? Where am I? WHO AM I?

Seriously, i couldn't shake this kafkaesque feeling - i was in a poorly made. generic. empty husk of an rpg, far away from what made GOTHIC great... so predictable it gave me slight anxiety, as if i was trapped in some empty MMORPG world all alone.

I won't go into the corporate ♥♥♥♥♥torm behind this shame of a game. Just the beginning is enough to let you know it is soulless.

I keep playing Arcania, trying to love this game. It worked with Two Worlds 1 & 2 - i somehow loved those games as i played.

Yet Arcania somehow manages to feel ...offensive. And here's why:

The total abandonment of the series tone and color has happened before in other games - but here the lack of care about anything is, like, RUDE. Storyline and undertone are not merely uninteresting. they kinda feel generic IN YOUR FACE. Like, sadistically. Instead of atmosphere, intrigue and corruption you get unintroduced linear fetch quests with zero reasons to care about them. The characteristic smell of moneygrab is all over, ''we don't care about your games sucker$$$''.

Thankfully the spirit of GOTHIC lives on in the RISEN series.

Moderately Acceptable Spin-off

At first, you can't tell if this is a direct successor of the Gothic games, because some things point to that (the intro cinematic) or if it's something else completely, as other things go against everything that the Gothic series was known for (the gameplay, the skill progression).

Then you realise that it grows on you, like a scratchy beard that eventually becomes the second most played with part of your body. You see or hear about important characters that were present in each Gothic game so far and there are iconic monsters to fight with as well (damned scavangers!). You see a lot of bugs, so that helps too. You get used to the fact that everything is so much easier to do:
- Fighting and low HP? Just press your hotkey for the Health Potion and your combat isn't stopped; hell, sometimes you don't even see the character's animation for drinking, but at least you don't get killed by a freakin' wolf pack anymore!
- Reaching a new level and need to get new skills? Just bring up the Skills menu and bask in the glory of adding those 3 new learning points wherever you wish, even while fighting! Who cares how you suddenly learned how to cast a fireball after you finished off a scavanger and the rest of his pack is now chasing you?
- Learned how to brew a new potion or how to craft a new sword? No need for an alchemist's bench or anvils, go ahead bring up the damned crafting menu and make everything you want.

It's not really a Gothic game. It's not even a good RPG game. But if you want to get a few more Gothic like moments out of anything, this is the best option you may have.

Disgusting. Boring. Tedious. Not worth money even on discount. Obviously made almost without any efford. I am not being salty usually, but I can't imagine this game being a thing, even if it was made in 2006.
Dont buy it, better spend your money on something more useful, like donate to kids in Africa.

The Good , The Bad and The Ugly best describes this game.

It's visuals ( which are great imo ) are unique and attractive. Huge explorable lands with varying weather effects and day+night cycles.

Magic / Bow / Melee combat are all pretty fun , though i'd recommend playing on hard or normal difficulty for it to feel balanced.

Plenty of Mobs to fight and Loot to hoard.

Character Dialogue is hilarious and refreshing though not in a bad way.

While this game isn't for everyone if you're the type of person that can over look a few problems then this is worth a play through especially if you enjoyed the Risen + Gothic Series.

A history of being plagued by bugs and problems doesn't make it a bad game.

This game is hard to review. I had a lot of fun in the game till the ending. Wait for a sale to purchase.

Pros:

Great graphics (turn off AA in you graphics driver and turn off foliage disappearance in game grahics options)
Fun gameplay
Simple to learn
Good story(till the end)
Lots of dialogue

Enable role-play element in the game options to enhanced the game experience.


Cons:

Needs more open world
To many mazes
Voice acting is off at times
The last 3 hours is horrible.
Ending sucked
Awkward teleporation system
Crafting was limited

Just finished both Arcania and Fall of Setarrif. My times were 36 hrs and 7 hrs. I think most folks could finish in under 30 for the main game and probably 5 to 7 for the Fall of Setarrif. Arcania ends in a cliffhanger, but the story comes to a true end in the Fall of Setarrif. I enjoyed the story and found the ending, and end battle pretty epic. I thought the end battle in Arcania was not very good, but at the end of Setarrif things heat up nicely. I was glad I came prepared although I would have leveled up my skills differently.
There were some graphic glitches and one really annoying game breaker after a boss battle about a third through Arcania. I had to go on the forums to get the solution to that issue. Also, you also see the same faces over and over. But there is also some beautiful scenery in the game. Really good for a game from 2010.
I liked the hero of the game. He starts as a village playboy, but his character grows through the game. The leveling up is kind of simple, but I enjoyed seeing the effects of increasing my skills and gear.
The music is well done. A very good orchestra and choir were used. Added a great deal to the atmosphere of the game.
So I would recommend. You should play both to the get the full story.

I´ve played the old Gothics and loved them. This title is a little bit tricky. You can´t compare it to the roleplayness of the older ones. Especially because you can´t interact with obvious things with obvious effects. I know, I know, there´s a setting, where you can enable or dissable roleplay element, like cooking or "sleeping" but it doesn´t give you effects. For example you can´t skip the night in a bed. Or regenerate health in a bed. i don´t actually know why this is not possible, because it´s even possible in the older ones. Most people be like: Ok i jump ingame, set difficulty to normal and maybe enjoy something. But that´s wrong. In my opinion you can only play on hard or gothic (very hard). Easy: Is just you are running through the world and killing Undeads with a kitchen knife. On normal it´s a little bit harder but still not a good experience. On hard it´s almost perfect. It´s not unfair, but not too easy. It´s a challenge. For example you can easily be killed by 6 or more Bloodflies. I´m almost at 100 health and have the best equipment you can get for this chapter of the world and it´s the perfect difficulty. "Gothic" is for the experienced player. But with "experienced" I don´t mean someone who played the older Gothics. This is far away from being a "real" gothic. You could compare this to Risen 2/3. This difficulty would be ok, but in my opinion it´s ridiculos how they don´t stop the attacking-chain (infinite combined attacks) Now something about the world. Now to the world. If you played the older Gothics, you most likely think it´s an open-worldgame, too. Wrong. It hasn´t an open world. You have one great island, where you fight from chapter to chapter. For example you can´t get from the beginning to the place where the game should end. But it´s not so bad, because you have a really good teleporting-system. No, sorry I was joking. The teleport system is useless. Imagine. You have points A, B, C and D. all of those places have a teleporter, which can be unlocked by just going to it and being near to it. You want from point A to point D. It´s not like you can teleport there, naaaaaah. You need to go to teleporter A, you teleport to teleporter B, you walk all the way through the island to teleporter C, to teleport to the final teleporter D. That´s how the system works. You basically have 2 connected teleporters where you can teleport between. So it could be a disaster. If you forgot something at the beginning, like a Tomb with a piece of an antique rune. You need to get 30 (not sure) of this to get this rune. And with this teleporting system, I only have one advice: NEVER forget about something. NEVER. Ok, that where many negative aspects of the game. Is it still good? Yes. I play it for like the 3rd time and I still enjoy it. Oh, and i have something to say to all the mages: The magic-system is crap. You only have 3 spells (lightning, fire and ice). You can upgrade them to do more damage and have a bigger range, but it´s a shame compared to the older gothics. There are some scrolls, but they are exactly the same thing, as you can learn. Just a little bit better. Maybe. You can´t summon a rain of fire or a huge demon. Not with ArcaniA. I still enjoy this game, so i rate 7/10 points. Because it´s not actually that bad. The landscapes are beautyful. It´s just a nobrainer to play sometimes. But it also have contra-aspects. (I´m sorry for my bad english, if I did some grammatic mistakes)

It's a nice spin-off in Gothic's world. We again will see many familiar face who are supposed to summon feelings of nostalgia.
Graphic: 9.0
Gameplay: 8.0
Sounds and Musci: 9.0
Story: 7.0 (a bit simple)
Overall: 8.0 if you are playing this game for the first time
I would recommend to play this game to complete at least for once, but hardly recommed to re-walkthrough.
If it's on sale and you love the previous 3 games in the Gothic series, then definitely buy it, otherwise it's just a nice RPG

Ok, I liked the Gothic series. I even liked the critically panned Gothic 3, possibly even more than the first two. I am also a fan of simple RPGs; I don't need graphics and complex combat systems. I really can't find much positive about ArcaniA. Every quest is "go get this thing for me then the blocked passage will magically open." The combat is inexact and unoriginal. The voice acting is so bad I had to mute it a couple times and there are only about four different faces for all of the NPCs (learn the names because they all look the same). Maybe if I can force myself through it, the story will make up for it, but thus far the story line is unoriginal. It is too bad that this game effectively killed an entire franchise. Maybe Risen will be able to advance the mantle.

The first and the second are epic.
The third is ok.
But this "ArcaniA - Gothic" is......

The game has nice graphics, and some ok gameplay.
But the gothic games are story focused, and this is the problem.
I have finished the game in 12h with all side-quest's.

ok lets start with controls: standard mouse and wasd for moving around. with shortcut keys for casting spells, switching between swords and bow, or to drink/eat stuff to regen hp and whatnot. its a good solid control system (if the players dexterity is good) you can kill almost anything by using ranged atk and switching to sword at the right moment. controls get a 9/10 score only cause theres always room for improvement. graphics! : ok its graphics are decent almost like the early skyrim but has a few unique things like when you get real close to a bush it disapears so you can see whats behind, under, or past it. if the bush does not disapear its either a grabbable item or its hiding a collecting quest item. there is no jump cheating to climb mountains its makes the graphics a little buggy when you try to. some trees you can walkthrough BUT i have yet to find a fall off the face of the earth glitch yet! YAY! for graphics ill give it a 6 or 7 out of 10. GAMEPLAY AND STORYLINE: the storyline itself starts out good but it switches states of mind to quickly to seem realistic :/ but its a good way to pass 20+ hours. as far as gameplay its got alot of details in the items system so many MANY items to collect with no carryweight limit. so for gameplay and story line ill give this game a 7/10 because i like to explore all the little corners and the devs took the time to put stuff in said corners.

Yikes! This is NOT Gothic!

This game feels more like 'Fable' and much more like a MMORPG (if you're thinking that's a good thing, you are wrong), even the story quests feel like pointless grinds.

I'm not very far along in the story but I think I've already lost all interest. Very different feel and a very different character from the original Gothic series. FAR LESS compelling.

If you are a fan of GOTHIC (III, especially), then you will probably enjoy 'Risen' much more (I did) which is very similar and LOTS OF FUN. 'Risen' even has great cheats and a sequel (which I haven't played yet).

Possibly the WORST thing about this game is the lousy CHEAT configuration.
You can edit a file easily enough to enable an, in-game, developer "cheat" menu BUT there is no god-mode and, EVEN WORSE, after you go through the trouble of maxing out your character's levels, points and stats - you die way too easily and way too quickly!!!

Meh, this game sucks.

If you liked the RPG elements in Gothic, prepare to be disappionted.
If you liked the progression in Gothic, prepare to be disappionted.
If you liked the combat, the world, the quests and every thing else that made Gothic Gothic, prepare to be really disappointed.

When ArcaniA (back then also called Gothic 4/ a Gothic tale) came out, I expected the old gothic feeling with improvements. What we got was an oversimplified RPG with a mediocre story at best that has not even a bit depth like the previous ones. The combat is very easy, making dying the more challenging task even on the ultimate "gothic" difficulty. I made it through the game first just using my two-hand-weapon and left swinging them to death and sometimes rolling to become invincible to projectiles like spells and arrows or to dodge melee attacks that sometimes hit you for no reason. After 1/2 of the game I got tired of this dull combat and just walked through the masses of enemies which works until you hit a forced encounter or a locked door and then you can just kill the 2-3 enemies that are still behind you.
Instead of an interessting world with many great, optional characters and a lot to do, we have linear enviroment (it is literally a chain of somewhat open areas that needs the completing of the main quest part to advance to the next chainlink) with the same character models being reused over and over again. Instead of being able to attack any NPC, you can only duel some for a quest and else they noclip through your attacks; instead of being able to choose a fraction, you are being forced onto one line to obey; instead of being able to get reputation in a city, all quests are either fully optional for gear or are needed for the progression aka the main quest; instead of being able to get into city fights with you leading the rebels against a whole army of orcs, you are a lone wolf and any NPC will refuse to interact while you are in combat.
Only good things are the graphics (for its age) and the small learning curve, if you are into casual RPGs. Not worth the time. Better get an old one and get community patches for them.

An average RPG game and very poor representant of the Gothic series.
-Boring, predictable and short storyline.
-Poor animations.
-The combat's also not challenging at all(with a mage you can annihilate the opponents before they even realize that you're nearby).
-Not the best voice acting.
-Clones,clones everywhere!
-Overly simplified character development.
If you are a veteran of the Gothic series by Piranha Bytes and you're looking for a successor of it then better buy Risen,created by the original Gothic developers.

An unbalanced and poorly executed game. I find it amusing that even the publishers realized that this game brought shame upon the Gothic franchise, and therefore decided to remove the "Gothic 4" title enterily from the Steam store page. It is not completely un-entertaining, but it lacks many or most of the aspects that makes a good RPG, if not game. It says a lot about the attention to detail when the faces of "key" NPCs are very noticeably duplicated.

+ Apealing graphics, at least in 2010
+ Makes you enjoy better RPGs more

- Hilarious voice acting
- Weapons and armor system
- Fighting mechanics
- Severly unbalanced difficulty (if not patched)
- Overall poorly executed

Never thought that i'm going to play ArcaniA a.k.a Gothic 4, because as we all know, it's not even close to real Gothic 1/2/3, but i decided to give it a try, theese are my thoughts about this game:

Visually this game looks awesome. Dialogues are not booring anymore compared with previous Gothic parts. Combat system is much easier compared with previous parts. The thing I really dislike about this game is Open World. Like, you can't go anywhere without a premission, or if you don't have a right key or something else, you just can't walk around like you could back in 1/2/3, I would say that it's like auto balanced game - you complete the quest, you move to next area, where you will need to fight against your lvl creatures, then you complete this main quest again and you have a premission to next area, where you fight against your lvl creatures and so on. I don't really like that type of gameplay. Back in Gothic 1/2/3.. You just start the game and you can already die in first minutes, if you go somewhere random, because there was no such thing as this ''auto balance''. When I play this game, i feel like i'm playing a different RPG game, it's fun, but it's not Gothic anymore. I bought Arcania + Gothic pack (6games together) for just 5$,
If you ask me - Is this game worth 5$? then my answer is yes, you should give it a try.
If you ask me - Is this game worth 20$? Then my answer is no, there are other nice games for 20$ out there.

Bueno, por dónde empezar a describir esta obra maestra -.- ...

Como seguidor de la saga Gothic, considero este juego como una ♥♥♥♥♥♥ada por la espalda.. empezemos a describir el juego...

Empezamos en una isla apenas poblada por 10 personas, en las que tenemos que cortejar a la única "Mujer" (por llamarlo de alguna forma) joven de la isla.. para lo cuál su padre nos envia a realizar unas pruebas.. tras terminarlas.. ocure un suceso inesperado y mete al personaje en un camino hacia la venganza... , en la que conoceremos a los antiguos compañeros del Héroe sin nombre, siendo su recadero..
La historia no es mal, ni desentona ni nada.. quizás sea lo mejor del juego.

Puntos negativos del juego.

- Diseño de personajes y voces asqueroso.
- Sistema de combate que consiste en "Ataque fuerte", "rodar hacia atrás para esquivar el ataque fuerte del enemigo" y vuelta a repetir.
- Crafteo de armaduras y pociones in situ.. da igual que estés en mitad de un acantilado que en una herreria.. podrás crear las cosas cuando quieras.
- No se puede dormir (No me gusta jugar de noche si puedo evitarlo, pese a las antorchas)
- Robar? Naaa.. puedes coger las cosas delante de la gente que no te diran nada.. total.. eres el héroe que los salvará! xD
- "Árbol de talentos" simplificado, olvidate de buscar entrenadores, todo lo aprendes tu solito.
- Magos enemigos inútiles.. se ponen a castear el conjuro, se quedan 5 segundos quietos suficientes para que te pongas a su espalda y le des por detrás (No, no se giran.. )
- Han destruido el carisma de Diego, Leste, Gorn, Milten... haciendoles parecer una sombra de lo que eran en los anteriores Gothics.
- Puedes comer en combate y beber pociones mientras ruedas alegremente por el terreno.
- Cuidado si te subes a una roca... esta puede resbalar hacia arriba (en contra de toda gravedad) y matarte sola.
- Trama lineal, para ir al punto C desde el punto A.. tienes que resolver los problemas en A, y luego en B ... no puedes ir directamente bajo tu propio riesgo (este recurso está bien en algunos puntos, pero no por norma general)
- El final lo han alargado sin ningún sentido, poniendo combates de relleno.
- Demasiada vida para los enemigos finales, unido a lo comentado anteriormente .. el combate se llega a hacer cansino (dado que sino esquivas, de 2-3 golpes te matan).
- Mala optimización en mi resolución nativa (1920x1080)

Probablemente se me olvidarán mas cosas, pero creo que ya os haceis una idea de como es


Puntos positivos

- Durante las primeras 15 horas, el juego se deja jugar, pero llegado a cierto punto de la trama, empieza a cansar.
- El juego tiene fin :)

Y como soy raro.. le daré a la expansión cuando me reponga un poco (Bentido dark souls 2)

Nota final 3/10 (Y por las primeras horas, que el juego se hace ameno! Sino ni al 1 llegaría xD)

Si te gustaban los juegos de la saga Gothic (como es mi caso) éste juego no te gustará ya que pierde toda la esencia que tenía la saga, si bien en el Gothic 3 quitaron muchas cosas, en éste ya se las cargan del todo. Lo unico que prevalece son los personajes y la continuación de la historia. Como fan de Gothic y si tomas éste juego como otro Gothic no te gustará para nada.
Por el contrario si tratas a éste juego como un juego alejado de la saga de Gothic, aunque no sea un gran juego te gustará.
Duración muy baja y dificultad muy baja también.
Nota: 6/10

Mucho se ha criticado a este juego por no ser un sucesor digno de la saga Gothic, y lo cierto es que las críticas están justificadas. Dicho esto, pasemos a analizar el juego POR LO QUE ES, y no por lo que debería ser. Pues bien, tras unas pocas primeras horas algo aburridas, me encontrado con un RPG de acción en tercera persona bastante divertido, con un desarrollo lineal (todo el mundo está conectado, pero sus diferentes zonas se van abriendo progresivamente) aunque con abundancia de misiones secundarias que, sinceramente, es lo más parecido a la saga Zelda a lo que he jugado en PC junto con Darksiders (salvando las enormes diferencias de calidad, obviamente). El combate es fluido y ameno, con varios estilos (armas rápidas, lentas, magia, arcos), hay algo de "crafting" sencillote y los gráficos son sorprendentemente buenos (sólo se echa de menos algo de anti-aliasing). En resumen, que si lo pillas en oferta, lo recomiendo totalmente. Además, está traducido y doblado al español. Una última observación: si el juego no ha cumplido las expectativas de los fans de Gothic porque los programadores originales se marcharon para crear otro juego, ¿cómo es que ese juego (Risen) es mucho más aburrido que Arcania? Porque jugué unas pocas horas y es básicamente un simulador de recadero medieval con algo de combate de lo más chusco.

Se trata de un juego de rol "tipo Skyrim", solo que más limitado. Digo tipo Skyrim porque no ofrece las amplias posibilidades que si ofrece el título de Elder Scrolls. Los equipos te los encuentras en la mayoría de los casos, raro es el arma o equipo que fabriques por tu cuenta, ya que los pergaminos o escasean o cuestan un riñón, y es preferible gastar en comida o pociones para recuperar vida en pleno combate, o tras finalizarlo. El juego te lo puedes pasar en un rango de 20-25 horas, lo cual me parece un tiempo razonable para lo que pagué por él, unos 5€ pillado en oferta.
El héroe realiza gran cantidad de comentarios sarcásticos que harán de la trama algo más amena de digerir, ya que a veces, las conversaciones pueden resultar algo tediosas, aunque nunca en exceso.
En general, es un juego aceptable, con una historia interesante, pero sólo si es por el precio adecuado. Personalmente no me parece un juego para pagar 20€ o más por él, ya que en mi opinión, flaquea mucho frente a otros títulos similares, seguramente porque el Skyrim puso el listón demasiado alto. Aún con todo, es un juego que recomiendo, como he dicho antes, por el precio adecuado, si lo encontráis en oferta como lo encontré yo, podréis pasar un rato agradable jugándolo.

Fatal.Fatal. ¿Veis el número de combos que hace el personaje? Pues no hay más. Lo que es la jugabilidad , nula , le pondría un 1/5. Gráficamente como véis en las imágenes está bien pero de nuevo viene la crítica negativa y es que el mundo no tiene nada de mundo abierto. Gasté 20 euros en un juego que pensé que me daría lo que buscaba, una aventura épica, y lo que he comprado ha sido una estafa, lo jugué menos de 5 horas y me dió tanto asco que lo he desinstalado y ahí está, qué lástima que no se pueda reembolsar las compras, perdí 20 euros. Mi consejo es que no os compréis el juego nisiquiera a 5€ ,este juego valdría 2€ y únicamente por los gráficos y un poco por la historia que tampoco me convenció mucho.
