Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods is independent DLC to Gothic 3, game itself wasn't made by our loved Pirahna Bytes, it was made by Indian firm Trine Games. Game was released on 21 of November 2008. The game continues the story of Gothic 3 from the Adanos Ending.
Story & Characters
In the land of Myrtana rules the peace, until Thorus and his Orc Army decides to start a war. When our protagonist awakes after fight with Xardas, he discovers that Myrtana has been divided between
  • Lee - Rules Vengard
  • Thorus - Rules Trelis and Orcs
  • Inog & Anog - Rules Silden and Geldern
  • Gorn - Rules Gotha
As you will see, the rebels caves from Gothic 3 - Okara, Nemora and Reddock will be emptied, the wild fauna took control of'em - Wolves, Goblins etc. etc.
General Things
At the start, game can be pretty boring, but play, you'll be pretty surprised about progress of story and plot twist at the end
Fight system is pretty different from Gothic 3, in mentioned game you could just spam LMB and kill many things, but here if you'll spam - enemies will stand like rocks and if you'll still attack as crazy, they'll hardly counter-attack you.
SUMMARY
Gameplay - 7/10 - Fight system different from G3, cool culmination of Gothic Saga, kinda boring
Audio - 9/10 - Pretty the same as in G3
Graphics - 8/10 - Pretty the same as in G3
Difficulty - 8/10 - In comparision to G3, the difficulty has been considerably increased, AI is better
OVERALL - 6/10
- I can't give this game better rate, it has frustrated me a lot, it has many bugs, I'd even give it something like 3-4/10 but audio and graphics have rescued that.
Anyways, if you want to really complete Gothic Saga or just experience the hard side of Gothic 3, get it.

Unoptimized and full of bugs.... But!!
I still like it since you don't get waypoints on where your quest is so you'll have to explore and read the quest logs. The combat however is a bit dull but using magic is way more fun. Can't say much about the story yet since all i care about is exploring and smashing orcs!

For someone looking to upgrade their orginal Gothic 3 im sure this would be a disapintment. However, this game is amazing for anyone who hasnt previously owned Gothic 3. This is game is for anyone that enjoied Oblivion and similar games, especially those that dont mind the graphic downfalls of 2006 in trade for a fun and challanging experince.

Pros:
this game is beautiful at times and has a pretty great engine for its time
fun and enjoyable
open world
All of the perks of a fun open world rpg style game
Its written fairly well with something decent to follow as well as side quests that really involve you with the townsfolk right from the start.(may update later, im actually not that far in the game)
Seems like there's quite a bit to do and explore,
strange but artistic creature designs for anyone who enjoys that sort of thing ( i guess this could be a con)

Cons:
However this game does not offer many variables, it often feels restricted in the rpg elements, character personalization is limited to the game's story script, bows, swords, and basic magic with little room to say you have a "class" or anything of the sort
no character customization
some clipping and graphic glitches, nothing game affecting, mostly leaves and tree's (could be my settings running it on low preformance)
some odd UI that takes time to figure out

Despite all the negative reviews about this God-Forsaken game, being an avid Fan-Boy of the series, i decided go play this game. The reason was simple. I had to know what events followed when Gothic 3 ended.

A lesson learned in humility. So many people simply cannot be wrong.

The negative reviews hold true! This game was a major pain to play.

For starters, the whole world of myrtana is pretty much the same , minus the varant and the nord regions.
There aren't any new opponents except for the troglodyte. They should have made more new opponents.

There is not much meat in the main story. You are stuck doing some really lame and senseless quests just trying to get to meet the main characters who are Gorn, Thorus and Lee.
The end is not at all satisfying. It didn't feel as if it contributed anything to the story.

The voice acting is the worst. Simply horrible.
They introduced a new battle tactic. While encountering an opponent, if you double-tap the direction key, your hero will perform a hop in that direction, which didn't help. It actually made things worse.

This really feels like some unpolished attempt made by some wannabe game designers who simply made it because they had nothing else to do.

With the enhanced edition, you wont find the game play buggy and as such if you forget about the story and quests and just play it for the sake of the Gothic 3 world and the graphics and the character building aspect, then it might get through the game.

My suggestion. Spare yourself of this one, jump on the next game in the series. Arcania.

BEWARE: This is not a patch or updated version of Gothic 3 as the description makes it sound. It is a quickly produced and shoddily written expansion that improves little to nothing about the game. This is the product that forced the developer to leave their publisher and start the Risen series, so I guess in that regard it could be seen as historical.

The script is BAD even for a Gothic / Risen game. Some of the dialogue is like a bad english puzzle. Even in its native German I can guarantee you the script was garbage because if you take away the poor grammar and apocalyptic voice acting, it's still boring and uninformative.

The map is the same as in Gothic 3 they just lock off Varant and Nordmarr. Pretty lazy. The quests are WoW type "go and get this" or "go and kill this".

I loved Gothic 3 but I can't play this POS for more than 15 minutes. I've tried 3 times.

I firstly played this game 4 yers ago and it was a disaster-robbed version of Gothic 3 with a lot of bugs and fool quests sometimes but still i finished it.Now i bought it again in enhanced edition and many things changed-the game graphics is greatly improved,stability is very good,no bugs at all and it looks like a solid datadisc for perfect game.The group which repaired the game did very good job here.

While it has its problems, the Gothic series, including this one, are some of my favorite games. The UI for inventory, trading, crafting, and skill development remain the easiest to use that I've seen in any RPG. Especially love how the inventory is automatically categorized. The soundtrack is pretty good too. I also like that you have a choice in combat as whether or not to kill an NPC or just vanquish him/her. Yes it has bugs, but not to the extent where I can't enjoy the experience.

Just gonna flat out say, this is an rpg for the diehard rpg fan. No quest tracking, map markers, do everything by fighting your way to an arrow on your map. In this game you'll figure out where to go by actually listening, not skipping through the dialog because you just want to do everything and get it over with. I definitely recommend it and give it a thumbs up. Worth the hours of gameplay just to solve everything, and actually feel accomplished.

G3:FF attempts to provide some closure to the Gothic series where no closure was really needed. G3 wrapped up the nameless hero's journey well enough. Now, a developer that isn't Piranha Bytes, throws him back into the world of Myrtana with a wildly different personality so he can deal with new and equally unfounded conflicts that have arisen in his absence.

This game feels like it was made as a total conversion modification for the original Gothic 3, like Nehrim was for Oblivion. It uses all the assets of the original to do something new - in this case to continue the story after Gothic 3 ended. To me it shows all the characteristics of user made content. All, except the love for the original game. The world feels empty, the hero is an arrogant b***h (though somewhat understandably given the story) and you are limited by basically nothing.
I am not sure if I should rate it down or stay neutral....

I've played this right after the Gothic 3.
Before that, I didn't recognize how bad this addon is.
Many things are ruined: image quality and perfomance is bad,
conversations are primitive, script looks like hastily written.
But worst of all I consider a heavy altered personality of the Hero and his friends.
Whoever wrote a story probably didn't know much about Gothic.

Sad. I've expected this game to be at least as good as Gothic 3 or even better.
This time even the community patch won't help much.

This game is fun if you like to be immersed in rpgs and can deal with immersion breaking bugs. It has everything you would see in a good rpg. The bugs can be pretty bad though, like you can skip entirely to the end of the game without completing the story line and you can do it on accident, which is what lead me to quit playing as once i did this i couldnt go back and finish the story line. I like how it is open world, full loot, and open dialouge even though the choices made doesnt affect much. Overall it is a good game and should atlest be checked out but beware, the gamebreaking bugs and flaws may turn some gamers away. This is definitely for only the hardest of hardcore rpg gamers.

6/10

Honestly, I don't know how this game is not talked about more. I would put this in the RPG genre, but its like something more interesting because its like the base/basic feel of our modern RPG's only grandfathered and skill toned in a way that suprised me to play for as long as I did. ALSO if you do play save often, those damn lizards in the tunnels kept making me load back to the forest area, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. I would not recommend it, exept for the fact it has a unique and similar feel towards my favorite title genres (Skyrim, Final Fantasy). You play as this one guy however, so don't be suprised. Good game. Worth it if you get for like $5 on steam.
