On the upside I have to say I did enjoy playing this game. I just didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as Risen (PC DVD), which was more immersive and had more satisfying melee and character progression, and to be honest I'm very unlikely to replay it, where normally I love to go back and replay an RPG game with experience of how to better create a character etc. This game has actually made me want to go and replay Risen instead.

I found the game was very linear, it soon became apparent you were working within very contained environments, limited side quests and a pretty unimaginative main plot. Some of those environments were pleasant enough, and dungeons avoided the predictability of Oblivion. The way the environments were handled generally felt unpolished however. Entering the water was simply an instakill, where Risen did this in a much more stylish way for example. Clipping was infuriating ... although some activities seemed to encourage you to explore, it was unpredictable which rock or slope you could actually climb or not, which becomes very immersion-breaking when you hit yet another inexplicable invisible barrier, only to go board-rigid and float away back down to where you are 'allowed' to be. It was actually a pleasant surprise in a couple of places to find I could get onto roof tops for example. I wasn't expecting Assassin's creed or Batman but this did seem to further feel like a heavy handed stage-managed limitation. Many interiors had an unfinished feel, with the same world objects being reused and becoming over familiar or interiors being sparse and unconvincing in places.

Erase the "Gothic" from the title & you have an enjoyable 20+ hour hack & slash romp on your hands. The RPG side of the game is light compared to the actual previous Gothic games made by Piranha Bytes, which this isn't made by them as you'd expect, but instead Spellbound. This is because Arcania is an attempt to open up the game to a more mainstream audience, a bit like what Oblivion did for the Elder Scrolls games. So here the RPG side is very light & pretty much an option in the settings menu for some of it, as where as it would had been a given if it were a true Gothic title by PB.

Anyway, taking place some years after Gothic 3 we take on the role as another nameless hero, set on a small peaceful Island we are treated to slow everyday life. But soon we are running around doing tasks & getting married, pretty sweet life here, too good to be true ? yeah, well it has to be, so its not to long until King Rhobar's men arrive on the Island while our hero is off sleeping, and they burn & kill everyone! gits. Time for some good ye olde revenge!!!

So off we trot to the mainland, but its not long before your doing Grannies shopping & picking up this or that delivery, seriously! how have these people coped without you! But although the task's are standard RPG fare, once you get out there in the wild, you come across some nice locations (albeit you can only go so far, it is a little linear), some are actually quite stunning visually, like the Mages home, which is a gigantic tree in a swamp surrounded by Ewok style huts & the like.

Having waited ages to play this, it was released briefly in the UK back in October but I missed out then, I was very pleased when it finally arrived and I could look forward to many hours in the same universe as 3 of my favourite games, Gothic 1, 2 and 3.

But this is not a "Gothic 4" as you would expect from that series even though this has Gothic 4 written all over the packaging, disc and game. This is something different.

OK, so putting my high expectations (yes I did enjoy Gothic 3) to one side what sort of game is this? Well, the Gothic series was known for having few stats but what you had was noticeable, this one has even fewer stats and the impact is probably more marginal. There is a flurry attack which can be increased through skill point allocation which essentially pins back whatever you are attacking and sometimes if there are a group of baddies the others kindly wait.
Exploration nods its head to the other games, but this is much more linear as each area opens up once you have cleared certain quests in the current area. Side quests are OK, but you do get the feeling that nothing is happening, and you are the only one in the game world not fixed in place (except for Diego and a couple of others who magically pop up ahead of you).
Graphically it looks very good but with cheesy dialogue and far too few NPC's faces, it's a bit disconcerting when everyone looks like each others brother!

Overall, I really enjoyed the game despite the above and put in over 50 hours. I did want to keep going back and finishing quests, gathering items, killing all manner of baddies (all the usual Gothic suspects are here) whilst carrying more weapons than on display in the Royal Armouries.
