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.

I have played all the Gothic games in the series.

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.
No content, no depth, no Gothic.

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.

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.

Le jeu n'est pas mauvais mais il est très vite terminé sans avoir le temps de se pencher sur la forge et l'alchimie. J'ai récolté des ingrédients sans avoir eu l'occasion de m'en servir puisque lorsque fous finissez le jeu vous ne sortez pas du dernier donjon, c'est imédiatement les crédits et vous vous rendez compte que vous avez fini sans avoir touché à l'artisana et avec 100000 po en poche. Plutôt frustrant.

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.

Une nouvelle fois une série à succès subit les conséquences d'un changement d'équipe de talent, la série Gothic s'est donc définitivement achevée avec le 3ème opus.
Gothic 4 Arcania devrait en toute logique ne s'appeler qu'Arcania et il deviendrait juste un honnête jeu d'aventure quelconque. Cependant en s'appelant Gothic, la comparaison avec les épisodes précédants est inévitable et là le jeu devient proche du minable: plus de monde ouvert, plus de possibilité de voler(self service),arbre de compétence proche de la farce, voie de la magie réduite au minimal,le héros a un charisme de beignet et les dialogues insipides au possible. Je n'aborderai pas l'aspect essentiel de tout RPG digne de ce nom, c'est à dire faire face aux conséquences de ses actes, car il n'y a aucun choix à effectuer ni aucune faction à rallier...
On ressent plus d'excitation sur Tetris,
Suicide en direct d'une série de renom...

Ce jeu est fortement inspiré des Gothics précédents en terme d'histoire, de thèmes musicaux et de bestiaire. Toutefois on constate un très grand changement (très dommageable) en ce qui concerne le GamePlay et la sensation globale du jeu.

Dans un premier temps, pour rendre les combats plus difficiles avec des enemis plus résistants et infligeant des coups plus mortels, je conseille le mode "Gothic" pour la difficulté. Cela ne va pas rendre les créatures plus intelligentes mais au moins chaque rencontre vous mettra un peu plus de pression et donc il faudra être plus prudent.

Les graphismes, pour un jeu de 2010, sont particulièrement bien réussi. Il y a toutefois quelques imperfections : certains endroits ne sont pas très raccords, on voit des trous dans les textures. Globalement on sent quand même des efforts notamment avec les effets météos et les mouvements des arbres bercés par le vent.

Les décors semblent plutôt vides et il y a peu d'interactions. L'artisanat - très simplifié - (forge, alchimie, cuisine) est une bonne idée mais me semble peu utile au final. Il m'a clairement manqué ce côté "annexe" des jeu de type jeu de rôle : j'ai collecté beaucoup de choses, j'ai exploré, mais celà ne m'a pas vraiment servi car j'ai peu utilisé de potions et n'ai presque pas fabriqué d'objets.

Du côté des PNJ, si certains visages sont plutôt corrects c'est... leur diversité... enfin leur manque de diversité qui perturbe! Il n'y a que quelques modèles qui se répètent, cela donne une impressions de "clones" très désagréable. Dommage, dommage.

Le jeu m'a semblé stable, j'ai bien eu des CTD vers la fin mais en effaçant une bonne partie des sauvegardes ce problème a disparu.

Même s'il n'est pas extraordinaire, je le recommande quand même car malgré ses défauts je me suis laissé porter par l'aventure. En jouant un guerrier j'ai mis près de 38 heures a boucler l'aventure et la quasi majorité des quêtes (bon, je n'ai pas trouvé tous les artéfacts).

PS : à prendre à très petit prix.

Ce jeu n'a de Gothic que le nom, même s'il reprend l'univers de ce dernier et propose une suite au 3 beaucoup de choses font que ce n'est pas une suite digne de la trilogie Gothic :
- Ce n'est pas le même studio qui a developpé le jeu. (Ils ont payé pour avoir le droit d'utiliser le nom)
- Le jeu est assez pauvre en contenu, que ce soit en terme de quêtes, d'objets et je ne parle même pas de la carte qui est vraiement ridicule et limité par de fausses frontières.
- L'arbre des compétances et la fiche du personnage sont également très simple et proposent grossièrement les 3 possibilités classiques, sans parler de la forge et du kit d'alchimie portable. (RP : 0 là). Le plus drôle c'est que les forges et autres objets peuvent être utilisés, juste sur le plan esthétique.
Sinon pour rester positif le jeu n'est pas trop moche dans certains endroits et le doublage est parfois assez drôle.
Par contre c'est un RGP en ligne droite, passé un certain moment il n'est plus possible de revenir en arrière.

Arcania est un bon jeu d'aventure aux graphismes somptueux et à l'histoire prenante mais n'a plus grand chose à voir avec son prédécesseur au niveau jeu de rôle. Et je comprends que les fans de gothic 3 se sentent trahis et déçus par la casualisation à l'extrème de ce jeu. Mais reste tout de même quelques insufisantes références à la série.

Malgré l'optimisation catastrophique d'Arcania, c'est loin d'être un mauvais jeu... si on oublie qu'il s'agit de gothic 4.

Mise à jour du post : les joueurs (dont moi) rencontrent systématiquement le message " ... a cesse de fonctionner" dès qu'ils lancent le jeu.

Grâce au nouveau système d'évaluation de Steam, je peux enfin dire ce que je pense de ce jeu sans pour autant le "recommander". Vous avez aimé Gothic I, II et III ? Vous voulez jouer au IV, ou plutôt à "Arcania" ? Fuyez, pauvres fous, fuyez pendant qu'il est temps ! Même en promo, il ne vaut pas le coup, à moins de le prendre pour une petit jeu d'action en 3D.

Les combats sont ratés, c'est indescriptible. Le héros principal a le charisme d'une huitre. Le doublage français est à mourir de rire. Le jeu est ennuyeux.

Bon, j'avoue, je n'ai pas réussi à le terminer. Peut-être qu'il commençait à être bien là où je l'ai arrêté.

Mon premier Gothic, il est beau, drôle, prenant, avec une prise en main rapide. Certain le dénigre par comparaison au Gothic3, mais si ont decide de le noter sur le coté lidique, c'est une vrai reussite!

Ce jeu a une très grande ressemblance à Skyrim, mais il reste très bon.
