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

Okay I wanted to review this game when I have finished it, but I can´t. When I told myself that I will play arcania, I found myself washing dishes and cleaning my room. That is how much I didn´t want to play it.
In the end I never got to finish the game.
Story sucks
Combat sucks. Even combat in vanilla skyrim is better and that is saying something.
Level up skills sucks
Crafting sucks
Characters sucks
Graphics were okay.
If you are a diehard fan of gothic 1, 2, 3. Do not buy this game. I bought this game for 5 euro and I still regret it. Incredible. Go and spend this money on something else. Or go buy Risen series, they are quite good and they bring back the gothic feeling.

10/10 would rather clean my room again than to play this game.

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.

This game functions better as a virus than a game!

The writing in this game makes youtube commenters seem literate and the voice acting makes Kristen Stewart seem like a well rounded actress. The game is glitchy and forced me to reload when I randomely fell through the graphics. When the game repeatedly crashed right after a boss fight, I decided to unistall it. Unfortunately there is no uninstaller and using steam to delete local content just launches the game without deleting anything. I had to go into my directory and delete it manually.

Save yourself some money, buy a brick to smash your computer with instead of buying this game.

This is a great game. Yes there are some things you'll need to manually adjust in your configuration folder before you play but once you do you'll be running highest settings on any modern none gaming rig with no lag or any crashing. Honestly I havent experienced anything other than lag until I did my fix(Yay no lag XD).

Who ever says they don't care for the graphics they are insane. The characters faces are my ONLY ISSUE so far. The environment is beautiful and feels real. Grass and trees sway in the wind the sun shines in bits through the trees casting fantastic shadows that overlap very well with alternate lighting and works great with other shadows. There's a day and night cycle/weather system and creatures that aren't blind and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ so there's another plus.

It is it's own story so what it's not some fast paced over the top madness some may be use to (COD Players) but the pace allows me to craft forage and fight where im not being overwhelmed meaning I get to enjoy the game and feel like im in a real adventure. Seriously I really did think at several points that I'd get some cliche' nonsense missions that just turn to your character not even dignifying the quest by basically telling the npc to piss off lol (not in those words[I wish]).

The combat is like if twoworlds wasn't terrible and clunky and was refined instead of a rushed mess. (Twoworlds had a better spell system)

I got this in a bundle awhile back and I'd say wait for a sale. I don't really see paying anything more than 10 for the game despite the joys I'm experiencing. I say this because I find there is a major combat flaw that maybe I'm just not noticing but the keyboard controls don't have a lock on button. The dodge works great until large monsters rush you so being able to strafe i combat would be nice. The Gamepad has it but you'd still have to use a keyboard and mouse for your hotkeys and inventory management more less defeating the purpose.

so far a strong 7/10

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.

I firstly played this game about 2 years ago and after Risen 1 from Piranha bites i expected a good counter attack from Jowood with this game.I finished the game and the game was good but not as i expected-there are many new bad things and i realised who was the stronger from the developers-this game can not be compared with Risen 2 and even with Risen 1.But it is still a good RPG game but not a worthy successor of Gothic series.

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

There are plenty of reviews for this game. Many pro's and con's. One thing that I have noticed, that I have not seen anyone mention, is that the water effects are pretty nice. When it rains you can see the water running on the ground and off the armor. The waves look good as well.

Meh ain't that bad i guess, but mostly it consists of holding w for a while then banging mouse 1 to win a combat, the storyline was too linear for me. Overall a very mediocre RPG game
the reason i wouldn't recommend it?
- It took 2 hour just to get it to run on windows 7
- not epic

After playing more than 3 hours of the game,here are my thoughts :
ArcaniA or Gothic 4 is nothing to compare to the game with same name Gothic 3. The game has nice graphic,but the battle system is hideous. Namley the creeps are too easy to kill, their attack to easy to avoid, don't do much dmg and are overlay too dumb to fight against.
Next of is the game itself. There are textures everywhere.EVRYWHERE! You will get stuck on imaginery objects, a small stone,wich is more a pebble than a stone, is blocking your movement. The fight animations,jump and moving of character in general is laughable.
The game is prety nice to play as a time killer since it has nice story to it. But the quest and the side quest dont even have no information at all! Example: Collecting Beliar Artefact's. The quest says a quick story behind it and says collect them, with no info about whereabouts (is it the area where you picked it up,the same island you picked it up or the same fricking continent).
The only good about it is the roleplay system that allow you to use object such as cettles,waterbarells etc.
For me I can't even look at this game as a real Gothic sequel. The Piranha Bytes who made G3 did almost perfect job on it, but when they joined with Spellbound that made ArcaniA the game lost all its glory.
Overall the game isn't worth 20€. I had luck (if I can call it luck) and got it in bundle.

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.

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.
