Ultimately I think that Gothic 3 is a niche game – it’s not for the casual or action-gamer, but the hardcore RPG gamer, and it is the hardcore player who will see this diamond in the rough for what it truly is. Unlike the horrific launch of...

Published October 23rd 2006. Written by Aidan Moss. First things first, DO NOT take any notice of the score given to this game. It’s one of the most pointless numbers that’s ever had the chance to exist, and it can’t be stressed enough...

All in all, Gothic 3 could have been a great game, had the release just been pushed back a few weeks. A patch has been released for it since release, but sadly, two pages of patch notes, and nothing mentioned in this review got fixed. Instead many...

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...

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...

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...

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’...

Tory Favro8.3Gothic 3This is one heck of a nice game that expands upon the look and feel of the fantasy games that have gone before it. Whilst not offering anything that gamers will think is entirely new to the genre, Gothic 3 certainly goes the...

International Review By PC Games Hardware on -

Seit Gothic III anno 2006 erschien, ist viel Zeit ins Land gezogen. Bereits damals sah Myrtana exzellent aus, die hohe Bug-Dichte aber vertrieb einen Großteil der Spieler aus dem Mittelreich. Auch bei der PC Games Hardware verstaubt der Titel bis...

Das Spiel weist immer noch einige Fehler auf, die den Spielspaß trüben – daher verzichten wir zunächst auf eine Wertung. Man kann sagen: “Im Ansatz gut”, doch warten wir ab ob Patches eine fehlerfreie...

International Review By PC for Alla on 70

Ruskig. Orherna i spelet är, som vanligt, riktigt grymma och otäcka. Ser man bara till innehållet i spelet är Gothic 3 mycket bra. Det är enormt stort och du har en väldig valfrihet när det gäller vad du kan göra och när du vill göra det. Dessutom är...

International Review By Subdogs on 80

Det ligger nära till hands att jämföra Gothic 3 med storsäljande Oblivion men det är absolut inte fråga om någon kopia. Gothic-serien är sedan länge etablerad i hemlandet Tyskland och det nästan skryter med hur annorlunda den är. Det gäller dock...
