Perhaps the most ambitious game ever.
Fully realized living world.
Nothing is ‘black & white’.
Tons of choices with consequences.
Different classes play differently.
Loads of gameplay in an story-driven open world.
Entire game is gorgeous.
Sandbox style gameplay.
Simply awesome graphics if your computer can handle it.
Even five years later the game is demanding of system requirements.
Lots of bugs.
Not enough information to accurately fulfill quests.
Laggy controls and interface.

Gothic 3 takes some role-playing aspects to a new high with its excellent quest system and fully interactive world. Too bad other critical elements, from combat to graphics performance, fall so short. Even the best moments are quickly overshadowed by...69

The core for a good role playing game is evident, it just lacks the polish that we hardcore gamers have come to expect from our RPGs. If you can get past the annoying stuff you might actually have some...68

Where to begin ... Well for starters, this is what single player RPGs should be about (and I will get into detail about this below). Yes, I know that online RPGs are very popular, but if Morrowind has taught us anything, its that the single-player...77

This is my first ever taste of the Gothic universe, now I do enjoy the occasional RPG epic so I knows what I likes. Performance wise this beast will probably scoff at your machine, kicking you down a peg or two when it comes to ‘rig l33t’...78
