Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
It’s not just the Japanese that can put together a decent role-playing game, as the Gothic series returns with state-of-the-art graphics, a giant game world and more monsters to vanquish than a whole Tolkien trilogy.

The lowdown:
It may not be as famous as The Elder Scrolls games but this latest entry in the Gothic series can give Oblivion a run for its money as the deepest, most expansive Western role-playing game around. The plot isn’t necessarily the highlight of the game but you are completely free to sign up with the rebels defending your homeland from orcs or welcome your green-hued masters and get work as a mercenary. The combat isn’t quite as slick as it could be but the game world manages to offer both a huge amount of freedom and a more focused set of story missions, that make levelling up far less of a chore than in other games. In fact this is probably one of the most underappreciated Western role-playing games around.

Most exciting moment:
The most immediately impressive aspect of the game are the graphics, which are truly stunning. Although the game features all kinds of unpleasant monsters and violence, in actual fact just wandering around the unspoiled verdant game world is strangely entertaining in itself.

Since you ask:
Although you only play as one character throughout the game, not a team, you do get allies helping you out during certain sections of the game. They’re a bit foolhardy when it comes to taking on bad guys but it is nice to have the company.

The bottom line:
The best Western role-playing game you’ve never heard of.- HARRISON DENT

Manufacturer's Description

Gothic III will deliver what other games have only promised: A living world where the players can freely choose the way they want to play. Players may explore the world and enjoy its richness and enchanted atmosphere or decide to follow a darker path and even ultimately destroy it.

You have saved your home island from the forces of evil in Gothic I and II. Now it is time to travel to the realms of the mainland.

Invading Orcs have enslaved the human kingdom. There are but a few free humans in the icy north and the southern desert and a handful of rebels hiding in the forests and mountains of Midland.

You may either join the rebellion or serve the Orcish Usurpers but you will ultimately tip the scales and decide the outcome of the last war to save humanity.

There is no simple linear story in Gothic III, every game will be different and unique.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Gothic 3. A retrospective review by Graham Schofield

READ THE NOTES ADDED AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE REVIEW, 4/1/2012.

I truly wanted to love this game...I really did.
I also wanted to give this game 5 stars all the way, but problems got in the way.....Read on ( long review warning !!!! )

On paper it sounded perfect, a vast free roaming RPG that can be played in first or third person perspective, a limitless level ceiling, hundreds of quests that , whilst I was playing certainly did not feel generic OR dull.

No indeed from the first moment this game booted up and ran I new I was in for one hell of a ride. I love RPGs. Especially PC based RPGs.
All the Might & Magics done ? Check. All the Fallouts done? Check. Every PC AD&D game done ? Check. Did I lose my life to Everquest? Check. Am I now losing my life to WOW?...well, you get the picture....that's me...uber-RPG- geek.

So when I first saw how beautiful this game looked, and how potentially complex, yet also, conversely ,how easy the combat could be...I was lost. I became the wayward warrior forging his way home after years of hardship, only to arrive at the local dock, head straight for my home town and finding it infested with invading Orcs, dispatched them as best I saw fit. Once that introduction to the combat was complete, I ventured round my home town, picked up a quest, which just so happens to be THE MAIN STORY QUEST. And what was that quest? To find a blind human necromancer called Xardas who had helped the Orcs conquer your homeland. Why had he done this? It was up to you to find out. If you, like me, read into that simple quest description " find the badguy and kill him" then join the club, as inevitably, that is what the game is about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game if you persevere... 16 July 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off - the overall game is not at good as Oblivion IV, so buy that if you have not done so. However in its own right it has some potential and if you endure with it (and reload often) it can bridge the gap until the next Elder Scrolls comes out next year! :)

Some good points:
- Great world to wonder around in - lots (sometimes too many) monsters/animals to slay
- Life-like in that you are not just shepherded through the main storyline (i.e. at the moment (half way through the game) I only have an inkling of what I have to do and where)
- For its age the graphics are good and the music is not annoying
- Many skills to develop to take the character into different directions (though you will be hard pushed to get around becoming good with the sword first)

Some bad points:
- Character very weak at the beginning - bl***y hard to survive at first
- You do not get armor from foes only weapons (not very life-like)
- You need to install all the updates first (inc 1.72!) otherwise game is quite bugged
- Although there is a more complex fighting system (with blocking etc) I find slashing works best
- At first animals (especially wolves) will mull you - so save often

Enjoy!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fun to play, good improvements over Gothic2 in graphics, resources management (e.g. don't have to wait 50 times to cook 50 pieces of meat, items increase health in percents instead of points, etc)

But...

Uses only one CPU, 100% (so having a dual or quad core machine is no help)

Requires lot of resources (I'm playing on Vista, 2GB memory, NVidia 7600), the game gobbles up the whole memory, up to 1.5MB of memory when it crashes with "Smart heap: Out of memory" errors.

This happens during Load or Save (regular and Quick); after restart the saved game is corrupted, and trying to load it will deadlock. Annoying!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great but quite buggy. 11 Aug 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game. Graphics, story and gameplay all great. But, and it's a big but. The game is riddled with bugs for example, it takes its time to stop jittering once you've loaded a save game and on the second day of playing it the picture wouldn't load and after closing and reloading the game I couldn't close the inventory screen (and that thing is laughable, takes up the whole screen and doesn't pause the game.) There are patch's to correct them but every time I tried to download them using the updater that comes with the game, all it does is start the game and forgets about the download. I tried doing it seperately and I couldn't be bothered with the super slow download of 880mb and then what it called 'screening' which would have taken at least twelve hours by my estimates. Probably my internet! But if you can download everything, then this game is fantastic. Definately the best game I have played on the PC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could had been a contender 24 Jun 2009
By Jules TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Played on windows vista 64bit.

I never used to play RPG's like this, until i took a chance a few years ago, by pure luck, on a game called Oblivion TES4: Oblivion - GOTY. Since then, i have been using Amazon to buy all the old RPG classic games, like Neverwinter Nights 2 , SWTOR 1 & SWTOR 2 , TES3: Morrowind - GOTY , Fable & The Witcher etc..you get the point. So i decided to give this game called G3 a try, as i always saw it and never bought it....until now.

I have played the patched version of G3, and I hate to imagine what people went through with the origional out of the box copy(so many problems). But the patched version is great(1.7 & 1.71 hotfix) and IMO, if this game didn't have so many bugs in it early on, i am sure this could had been a rival to Oblivion, yet i had never heard of G3.

Bottom line, There are enough reviews here, so i don't need to explain the game to you. I just bought G2(more difficult i think) Gothic 2 , and if you like your RPG's, then this has to be in your collection IMO. What have you go to lose at this price?!
