Относно тази игра

War has been waged across the kingdom of Myrtana. Orcish hordes invaded human territory and the king of the land needed a lot of ore to forge enough weapons, should his army stand against this threat. Whoever breaks the law in these darkest of times is sentenced to serve in the giant penal colony of Khorinis, mining the so much needed ore.
The whole area, dubbed "the Colony", is surrounded by a magical barrier, a sphere two kilometers diameter, sealing off the penal colony from the outside world. The barrier can be passed from the outside in – but once inside, nobody can escape. The barrier was a double-edged sword - soon the prisoners took the opportunity and started a revolt. The Colony became divided into three rivaling factions and the king was forced to negotiate for his ore, not just demand it.
You are thrown through the barrier into this prison. With your back against the wall, you have to survive and form volatile alliances until you can finally escape.

Features include:

  • One of the biggest RPGs with over 100 hours of gameplay
  • A large variety of weapons and spells for your character
  • A living world where people go to work, sleep, eat and fight to survive

Best RPG game ever.
Should you play Gothic?
Not if you want a deep character-development RPG or an action-packed hack-and-slash game, or if you'd have trouble dealing with the game's various problems. However, if none of these conditions really bother you and if you'd be interested in playing a game that places more emphasis on character interaction and quests than on fighting monsters, you should give Gothic a try.

From a nostalgic point of view this game gets a 10 out of 10 from a contemporary review it gets a 5/10 at best because it's outdated, yet i still give it a thumbs up because the atmosphere in Gothic is awesome.
You're thrown into the barrier, somebody, a stranger, a loner, nobody cares about you, nobody wants to even know your name and you don't even know that the ♥♥♥♥ is going on when we get punched in the face and left in the dirt. Here tstarts the adventure of the nameless hero. That part really reminds me of Akira Kurosawas Yojimbo or the Western remake For a handful of Dollars by Sergio Leono, a nameless guy comes into a gritty world, only were Eastwood was quick to take advantage you start as a nobody with no skills and no knoledge about the land. Trapped under a magic barrier 3 camps want you to win you over while you have to deliver a message to a group of magicians who are trapped here.

Gothic is a very old-school RPG, the makers constantly said that classics like Ultima 7 were influences when they started to make this game and you can tell it on evey corner. Quests are like "Go there....somewhere....get me something" and not how modern RPG works were an arrow leads you exactly to the point of interest as well as the game making sure that you never feel as a Hero. You're not the knight in shining armor, you're not the saviour of the world. In the beginning even 2 Scavengers can kill you, a group of Blood flies kill you faster than you can say "i wish i had a proper sword", you're a nobody who has to learn everything, has to level up and find a role to play, wether it's a Swordfighter, a Archer or a Magician with specifications in between: 1 hand or 2 hand Sword? Bow or Crossbow? Magician of various arcance ways? Of course also the question which of the three camps you follow or if you play them all against each other like Eastwood did in the first Dollar movie. You can even do that though ultimately there's one way to Freedom.

I'm old enough to remember when the game was previewed in german gaming magazines and the hype was build, though even back then there was bit of negativity toward the controls and while Piranha Bytes went from Keyboard only to a more comfortable Keyboard + Mouse system it's still a far cry from todays fluid controls. Picking up items and fighting is uncomfortable and will take a while to get used to it.
Also since this is a old-school RPG the difficult is considerably higher than what gamers today may know from the likes of the Bethesda games. A single enemy can kill you, you need to be more strategic in your fighting early on and use your learn points wisely to level up in the fields you desire (as mentioned: melee 1 hand, 2 hand, bow, crossbow, magic) you can't be a master eof everything like you can be in Skyrim.

If you fight through, learn some skills and get used to the gritty world you will find a very atmospheric world that takes cues from medieval europe as well as being influenced from Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire and german Fantasy works like Das schwarze Auge (The Dark Eye) with a dark realistic world and a great soundtrack with atmospheric music.

I recommend it with a warning about the controls but if you can get over them as well as the outdated graphics you will find a really good RPG. Altough i guess the english voice acting and translation is a far cry from the german original. If you know some german play it in it's original form!

Simply an amazing game! Played a lot a long time ago offline. Now decided to buy it since i had the spare cash.
It's just a wonderfull game, nothing more or less.
You must grind your way up from scratch.
Work your way through every possible quest.
When you start you are literally nothing, a worthless piece of ...
I have no words for the Gothic series. (1, 2 and 3)

If you are no incompetent ♥♥♥♥♥, you should be able to make this game running within 30 mins. Even I could do that in less time. So stop ♥♥♥♥ing crying that it doesn't run when you downloaded it. Or at least, stop giving the BEST RPG ever made a negative rating only because you are to stupid and/or to lazy to watch a god damn youtube tutorial about how to fix it! I am very grateful that I got it here. If you are not willing to spend some time to be enabled to play this game, you're not worth playing it. i mean, it took me more time to figure out how to eat food or equip a weapon in this game than making it run, so unpatient fools like you would never find a way into this game anyway.
All I wanted to say is: If you can't do such an easy thing like using google to figure out how to make the game run, not the game sucks, but YOU suck. Thank you.

Day 1: Arrived to colony, got beaten up, went to Old camp, told the guard I'm going to kill everyone here, got beaten up again.
Day 2: Refused to pay "protection money", some digger tried to beat me up so I hid in the barrel, nearly got beaten up again.
Day 4: Bought skirt in Sect camp, put on the skirt, got 3 joints of weed for free, increased my maximum mana by smoking weed.
Day 6: Met a drunk guy in New camp who offered me to sell his weed and split profit, sold weed kept the ore nuggets for myself.
Day 8: Went to old mine, lured the guard away from his chest, cleaned up the chest, nearly got beaten up, sold him the key of his chest.
Day 10: Grilled 250 pieces of meat, put a guy to sleep with a spell, robbed his house, got beaten up again.
Day 11: Went into forest to collect mushrooms for the chef, got eaten by Shadowbeast.

Gothic 1 is absolutely brutal.

You are nothing

You are worhless

You are just a bag of meat to puch some ore from

Until, you learn how to gain some ore.
Gain some respect.
Gain some skills.

Yes this game has its issues with controls and little bugs, but hey, there was no "patching" or other stupid thing back then.

This game has the ultimate character progression that really makes me have strong feelings even after 10 years later writing this review.

Still one of the best RPGs ever made with great quests and immersion.

If you want it to run in all resolutions, Windows 7/8/10 and 60 fps use the Gothic System Pack. You dont need other workarounds.

Good game, but do not buy it for Steam. Buy it from GOG instead - better optimization, far less issues, and you don't need to download a patch.

- When I was washed ashore, one of the guys punched me in the face!
- They do that to all the newcomers. They call it "Standing Godfather".

This short and absurd dialogue exchanged between our nameless hero and a shadow - an agent of the old camp - basically summarizes the tone of the whole Gothic series, starting with this first installation: ruthless, cruel and challenging. Its dog eat dog world from the moment you start your game, and it won't get any easier for quite some time. Nevertheless, coming out in 2001, Gothic is one of the first open world single player RPGs where you get to choose your own progress; roaming around, choosing quests and eventually deal with one primary problem that would very much define your whole story. With this game, Piranha Bytes set the baseline for all Open World RPGs that will be eventually advanced by The Elder Scroll series and many other wondrous RPGs, changing the market expectation of a computer RPG forever.

With the opening cinematic, we are informed that there has been an ongoing war between humans and orcs for ages now, and the King Rhobar II desperately needed magical ore to finance the war. Thus, he ordered a mining colony populated with prisoners to be established by all criminals, bandits and cutthroats of the land. 10 of the most powerful mages put a magical barrier over the colony. Yet, something has gone wrong. The barrier extended beyond the intended limits; trapping all and any that were present around at the time. The barrier was harmless for the one coming into the colony from the outside, yet it was impenetrable from the inside. None would be able to leave alive... Taking advantage from this mishap, the prisoners revolted and killed all guardsmen, seizing the control of the colony. Desperate for the ore, the King came to an agreement with brigands exchanging all kinds of earthly goods for the ore needed and still keeping to send in new prisoners for the work force.

This is the point our nameless hero - whose "name" or its instant of not being revealed in any circumstances is an ongoing gag for the series - a prisoner of unknown crime, is sent down to the colony, to deliver a message to the Arch Mage of the Circle of Fire. We are given the message, kicked down to the colony to meet some locals - and get smacked by them as a casual welcome... From this point onwards, it's gonna be a zero to hero scenario. Our relatively mundane character will become the one hero of the land through exploration, careful choice of allies and smarts enough not to do or say certain things in certain conditions.

I must say that the setting and the story are fairly creative about the idea of a society established by criminals. Anyone and everyone in the colony are convicts or at least shady enough people with their own agendas anyhow. Most NPCs you'll end up meeting are pretty much a**holes and they'll lie, cheat and change alliances easily. Characters have motives, depth, agendas and personalities. So, not trusting anyone becomes our main motto quite easily. Even though the game world is relatively small here, the setting itself - with 3 primary gods, orc/human wars, different lore and system of different camps, the nature of magic and runes, fiends of vile realms etc. - are imaginative and intriguing, yet sadly the storyline hasn't been thoroughly developed into its full potential in this first game. As the series progress, we'll become increasingly invested in both our character and the setting of the world - especially with Gothic II, which I'd consider a masterpiece RPG.

Animations and display are nothing miraculous considering the age of the game, yet they are really good for their time. We are even capable to observe some basic facial features, mimics and remarks of NPCs while they are making comments - which was altogether quite new and fascinating for its time. The game world is kinetic too, with NPCs having routines, sharing meals and attending mundane business when you are not interacting with them. Even mob monsters do sleep according to day/night cycle!

Let's talk about the sucky parts of the game anyhow. Controls from hell are the primary problem that many people would prefer to pass this game. Mouse is merely used to direct camera angle - like an action adventure and you are expected to arrange a handful of odd key combinations for everything. If you are to rearrange key bindings, you'll probably override some other management option and render everything much more complicated than before. So... it's either getting used to hellish controls or not playing this game. You'll be expected to use 2-3 key combinations just to pick an item from the ground! That is some meaningless chore, I won't lie. But if you get used to it, you won't be even aware that you are arranging the combination after some point.

Let's make our peace with one certain fact at this point: dying is a natural and common part of Gothic series. With this kind of gameplay difficulty and somewhat bug-ridden environment, you gotta be either a hardcore fan of the series or a bit masochistic to learn and have fun from getting your a** kicked in casual ways. Combined with hellish controls, combat becomes fairly hard and disorienting sometimes. You are expected to perform a series of combo attacks, blocks or dodges to face your enemies or else, anything coming your way might make an easy meal out of you. When you bear the controls finally, you'll notice that input detection bugging quite annoyingly sometime too. AI is somewhat imaginative too; maintaining different approaches of combat for different kinds of enemies and monsters. Some will downright charge, some will hunt in packs, others will dance around you and some others will try a couple of hit and run tactics on you.

The AI and the environment texture are fairly old and buggy, so I strongly recommend installing some mods before taking on this journey; and for that purpose I'd certainly recommend GOG version of the game rather than Steam version, considering its way more stable with less crashes or conflicts. Worst case scenario, you are able to use a series of cheat commands called the Marvin Mode - which was used by developers to test certain modification - to arrange nearly anything in the game. Many things in game are left semi-developed due to time management problems on Piranha Bytes' part so installing Dark Mysteries mod + Ironforge Patch would fill in the blanks left by developers and fixing most glitches perfectly if it doesn't cause any problems for your system.

This game - with its scenario, its environment and its humor will always find a way to surprise you both in good ways and bad ways. Even after stating all its problems - and casual ways to work around them, I strongly recommend playing this game as a part of computer RPG history at this point. It is not only nostalgia, it is a classic - alongside Gothic II.
