"Atmospheric, well-designed and hand-crafted, Gothic sets many important open-world ARPG standards. The wonderfully German dialogues are an added bonus."

Про цю гру

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

Good game, but do not buy it for Steam. Application errors and "access violations" up the ♥♥♥. Save yourself the headache and get the Gothic series from GOG.

13 year old game, and I still find it amazing. Although it's more wooden than Gothic 2 (which has the same but an improved engine), it is still immersive and great game. Good story, fun combat. The only thing I didn't like was magic for the most part, although even magic is pretty good.

Still has a bug here and there, but it's a GG.

Overall the game aged remarkably well and left me quite stunned as to how modern-games have regressed in terms of making games. To start off I will say there are elements in the game that are rather old-fashioned in comparison to how games have progressed, for example the developers took an extreme use of the ctrl key that is normally used for crouching (or walking depending on the person). So that being said the combat, menus, lockpicking, and nearly every action you can think of is bound to the ctrl key which takes time to get used to.
The story of the game was all that a generic story tells and nothing more. I wouldn't expect for people to play this game and be stunned as to the twists that the story told, everything comes at face value in the game, and it's meant to be taken more light-heartedly than other RPGs of it's kind as told by the dialogue and various cutscenes.
The combat is relatively interesting and I was reminded of the style of combat that Witcher (CDProjekt RED) decided to use as well. So much so that I even thought perhaps it was the same developers working on the games. I can't say for sure but it is mighty suspicious knowing that Gothic 1 was distributed by CD Projekt a subsidary of CD Projekt RED. It's mainly odd that no one mentions the connection that Gothic 1 had rhythmic styled fighting where you press the directional movement (with ctrl) in accordance to how your character holds the sword. At any rate I can help but feel that Witcher was inspired by Gothic possibly through the connection mentioned above or simply because it was quite popular for it's time, your choice.
I'll go ahead and say there wasn't anything sound-wise in the game to make me hate having to hear the same song over and over again. But I also won't say I heard anything too spectacular aside from the one german band that wandered it's way into Chapter 2 of the story in Old Town.

Now for some odd faults I found with the game. I'll say previous to this that there was an unofficial patch I found out about after finishing the game with a vanilla playthrough. This could be a fix to all the problems I'm going to mention, but I feel I should say some of them anyways.
-Ladders are completely broken in certain areas which can leave players stuck
-Enemies can completely dodge attacks infinitely until you block and allow them to attempt a shot at the hero
-Enemies grouping give an unfair experience due to you being unable to attack anything but the single target you lock on to while they can mindlessly swing at you
-Getting hit causes the hero to get 'stunned' See: Enemies grouping^ to understand why this sucks so horribly
-Any and all animations are not invincible animations and while I can understand why this is placed in certain areas, the final boss desperately should have had some sort of invincibility frames when doing actions
-Humans are completely annoying to kill which leads back to invincibility animations as you have to stop attacking them when they fall to the ground, and THEN press ctrl+up to finish them off otherwise they'll infinitely stand back up
-Mud again because he got me stuck in the bed when he tried to dialogue with me as I tried to sleep and was forced to reload a save quite a ways back
-other odd glitches and whatnot such as clipping through the floor and just dying or sliding off areas that didn't appear to be unsafe leading to untimely deaths

Overall despite the glaring flaws towards the end of the game (at least to me), the first half of the game was amazingly fun.
The main reason I disliked the last half of the game is because it felt like it was working backwards while trying to progress, for example I had someone working on giving me a piece of armor while I had already gotten the end-game armor. And he still hadn't finished the armor that was weaker than the one I'd gotten. It just felt like I was constantly dealing with stuff like this. Another instance was when I was a high-ranking member of the city and was told that I couldn't buy armor since I was a stranger.
To me this is something easily worth checking out and be sure to look for the unofficial patch, perhaps it'll make the game even better for you than I since I had encountered so many bugs.

Also there are tons of bugs with simply STARTING the game
Here's a quick troubleshoot list before I found an end-all solution for my problem
If you get an error when you try starting the game, i.e. you can launch the game but then you get an error when you load or start a new game.
-Disable Steam Community
If that doesn't work
-Run Gothic as an Administrator
The final one
-Disable sound in the .ini Gothic file or in the settings menu
This doesn't have to be the background music, but it does take away all dialogue/sound effects for the rest of the game including cutscenes. But doing this fixed the game entirely for me and I no longer had any start-up issues.
Again patch may or may not fix this.

This is one of the best games ever made and a must-have for every RPG enthusiast !
Although the game has been released in 2001 and thus doesn't meet current graphical and gameplay standards à la Skyrim (2011), obviously, it clearly proves that the German developers Piranha Bytes understand how to thrill players with astonishing medieval in-game atmosphere, exciting main and sub storylines, hilarious patters, avid anticipation for level-ups, rewarding skillsets, story influencing decisions, powerful orchestral music, and a real existing in-game live band !

I played this as a teenager and I feel like playing it again from time to time because in terms of atmosphere Gothic remains unmatched to date. Several different endings and skillsets encourage players to replay the game and dig deeper into the story.

Thank you Steam for offering this (rather old) game on your platform !!! :)

Some technical remarks:
To get the game running on newer OS avoiding the Access Violation Error right after the start you'll have to make sure GOTHIC.exe runs in compatibility mode (Win XP works fine here). The file can be found in Steam's standard directory:
C:/Programs (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common/Gothic/system

For many steam users the game starts in window mode and won’t let you access full screen mode.
To fix this you either need to install a patch as described in Karuhm’s Guide:
or people who don’t want to do that can simply overwrite the video resolution settings in the GOTHIC.ini file, which is located in the same folder as GOTHIC.exe.
If the non-cancellable Pyranha Bytes intro video annoys you, just search for the „playLogoVideos“ entry in the .ini-file and set it to 0. There are lots of useful settings in there.

В далекому 2001 році нікому невідома студія, перевернула уявлення про жанр RPG, подарувавши геймерам величезний по тим міркам, безшовний, створений з великою любов"ю до деталей світ Готики.

Дії гри Готика, відбуваються у фентезійному всесвіті Мордраг, де король веде війну з орками, і для перемоги йому потрібна зброя з магічної руди, в той час як саму руду відправляли видобувати злочинців з усього королівства. Щоб ніхто не зміг втекти з колонії, король наказав магам поставити магічний купол, але купол вийшов більшим ніж планувалось, і маги які його створили самі опинились всередині. Невдовзі владу в колонії захопили злочинці, і продовжили видобувати руду для короля, але вже на інших умовах, в обмін на зброю, припаси, харчі і жінок. Бар"єр пропускав всіх, а вийти ти було неможливо. На початку гри головного героя Готики кидають за бар"єр, де йому доведеться вижити, приєднатись до однієї з фракцій, знайти вірних друзів, врятувати усю колонію, і вибратись назовні.

В грі є 3 фракції: Старий табір, Новий табір і Болотне братство, приєднавшись до однієї з них гравець отримає унікальні для фракції квести і екіпіровку, а також визначить клас героя, наприклад в Старом таборі можна стати воїном або магом вогню, в Новому таборі стати воїном або магом води, то в болотному братстві ми отримаємо щось середнє між воїном та магом. Також ніхто не забороняє бути лучником, але ближній бій все рівно потрібно буде прокачувати. Що до прокачки в Готиці вона по своєму унікальна, за кожен лвл-ап нам нараховується 10 очок досвіду, потім доведеться знайти вчителя, і потратити ті очки як заманеться. Хтось буде вчити просто так, з кимось доведеться договорити, комусь доведеться заплатити чи виконати квест. Що до квестів, їх багато і вони всі дуже різноманітні, квестів збери Х предметів, чи вбий Y ворогів практично нема.

До гри доведеться звикнути, в неї специфічне керування, коли треба зажати ЛКМ+W для виконання якоїсь дії, бойова система реалізована так само через зажимання ЛКМ і WASD. Також однією з особливостей гри є її доволі висока складність, на початку гри буде проблематично вбити 1 навіть самого слабкого звіра, а якщо їх буде декілька то вони запросто порвуть недосвідченого шукача пригод, але гра має чудовий баланс, гравцю не дають задач з якими він би не справився.

Готика перш за все бере своєю атмосферністю , яку створює відмінний дизайн локацій та музика, світ так і хочеться досліджувати, заглянути під кожен камінь, поговорити з кожним каторжником, і послухати його історію.

Графіка в грі безнадійно застаріла і це мабуть буде найбільшою проблемою для гравця який тільки зараз вирішив познайомитись з всесвітом цієї чудової гри.

Отже, Готика це одна з ігор де хочеться собі стерти пам"ять, щоб пройти знову, якщо вам все рівно на графіку, то не оминайте цей шедевр, таких ігор мало і їх більше не роблять.
