3.0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought it would be 25 May 2014

Although dated this is very playable. The choices at the start of the game are quite confusing and the manual is pretty useless. Using a walkthrough helps enormously with making initial choices. I have been thoroughly spoilt by games like Skyrim but unfortunately there are not many games that good and you can only play them a few times before they get repetitive.
Given the low price it is definitely a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! I was hooked on this game from start to end 1 Dec. 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First and foremost, if you have a powerful gaming PC, this game will look spectacular! I was blown away by how gorgeous everything looked. I grabbed a great deal of screen shots and videos whilst I was playing.

I have played a lot of first or third person fantasy role playing games and this one was a nice trade off between the complexity of managing a character and the more visceral action gameplay. I was delighted that there was no limit to what I could carry and the difficulty settings made it easy to get past anything that was too challenging. I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to games these days as I am very busy, so I was glad that the game could be tweaked to make it easier if I just wanted to get further in the game.

If you search for "Paul Tinsley Arcania" on Youtube, you can find a couple of videos which showcase the action and graphics;)

There are some parts of the game that are a little annoying. I suggest having a walkthrough handy in case you get stuck, as some things are not that obvious. The voice overs and repeat character model usage is a bit slack too, but not enough to put me off.

This game is well worth it and if you love role playing or fantasy hack and slash with some fabulous and immersing environments, then go grab it and make sure you let your friends and family know that you will be busy for a while!

4.0 out of 5 stars Original + addon is a resonable price 3 Nov. 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've buyed it myself and I will play it all again. I'm not a kid, but an adult of 35 years old, who's a fan of Gothic games. Yes, the originals are way better. But this game deserves more than only 2/10. I find it to much underrated and forgotten. It was the latest try from Jowood, to get out off the costs, they had. Even they have maded somes mistakes, it's still a decent game. Even what other people may say. I've played a whole lot of worse games, than this. Suggestion: play it on "Hard" mode or minimum "normal", but not: "Easy". Or you don't have any challenge. And also: you will not have any help from it's RPG system. So play it hard.
