Über das Spiel

10 Jahre sind seit dem Ende von Gothic 3 vergangen und die Welt hat sich verändert. Auch die Südlichen Inseln, der Schauplatz dieses Abenteuers, bleiben von den Ereignissen nicht verschont, und der Spieler muss als Namenloser Held viele Herausforderungen meistern. In einer lebendigen und aufwändig gestalteten Umgebung gilt es Entscheidungen zu treffen, die nicht nur die Zukunft der Südlichen Inseln, sondern vielleicht sogar der gesamten Welt beeinflussen werden.

Alte Bekannte und neue Charaktere werden dem Helden zur Seite stehen oder versuchen, ihm auf seiner epischen Reise Steine in den Weg zu legen. Vor allen Dingen die Damen werden eine größere Rolle spielen. Wer weiß, möglicherweise werden sie dem Helden sogar Herz und Verstand verwirren? Aufregende Quests und herausfordernde Kämpfe gehören ebenso zu den Highlights wie Intrigen, Verrat und Ränkespiele. Wird der Namenlose Held auch diese gewaltige Aufgabe meistern?

Gameplay
Arcania - A Gothic Tale beruht auf einer Welt, die den Spieler einlädt, unzählige Sehenswürdigkeiten und Details zu erforschen. Unterschiedliche Klimazonen mit liebevoll ausgestalteter Pflanzen- und Tierwelt, unterirdische Verliese sowie Städte und Festungen mit einzigartiger Architektur warten auf den Entdecker. Wolken verdunkeln den Himmel und verschiedene Wettereffekte – wie z. B. Regen und Wind – beeinflussen die Spielwelt, die durch ihre fantastische Grafik, Tag- und Nachtwechsel und den bezaubernden Wechsel von Licht und Schatten stets fasziniert.

Untermalt wird all dies von stimmungsvoller Musik und hochwertigen Soundeffekten, die eine unvergessliche Atmosphäre für den Spieler schaffen. Unzählige Quests, herausfordernde Kämpfe, undurchschaubare Figuren sowie eine anspruchsvolle Story sorgen für viele Stunden aufregenden Spielspaß. Die Südlichen Inseln warten auf dich!

Hintergrund
Krieg liegt über den Südlichen Inseln wie ein ölgetränktes Tuch und macht auch vor Feshyr nicht halt, einem beschaulichen Flecken Land, weit draußen im Südlichen Meer. Als der Held der Geschichte in diese, seine Heimat, zurückkehrt, steht sein Dorf in Flammen. Die Fremden, die unter dem Zeichen des Adlers angriffen, entkommen und segeln davon.

Nun verlässt der Held seine zerstörte Heimat und sucht nach Rache. Doch schon bald erkennt er, dass hinter dem Angriff auf Feshyr weit mehr steckt als nur die Willkür einer finsteren Söldnerbande ... Eine böse Macht lauert an der Schwelle zur Welt. Der Held stellt sich dem Bösen entgegen, und er steht nicht allein: Eine geheimnisvolle, wunderschöne Dame ist fest mit seinem Schicksal verbunden, und ein Artefakt aus längst vergessener Zeit spielt eine gewichtige Rolle in dem grandiosen RPG-Abenteuer von JoWooD.

Die Gothic-Chroniken
Auf dem Höhepunkt ihres langjährigen und grausamen Krieges gegen die Orks, drohte die Streitmacht von König Rhobar II. an einem ganz profanen Problem zu scheitern - dem Mangel an hochwertigem und magischem Erz, unerlässlich für die edlen Klingen und strahlenden Rüstungen der Paladine, ihres Zeichens der Stolz der königlichen Armee.

In Windeseile wurde auf der Insel Khorinis, rund um die wertvollsten Erzlager, eine magische Barriere errichtet, in die Sträflinge, und waren ihre Taten auch noch so geringfügig, geworfen wurden. Tag und Nacht sollten sie schuften, um das Erz für die Armee zu gewinnen - und sie taten es auch, bis einer der ihren, ein namenloser Sträfling aus dem Herzen Myrtanas, unter den Augen des mysteriösen Dämonenbeschwörers Xardas eine grauenvolle Kreatur, genannt der Schläfer, niederstreckte und die Barriere zerstörte.

Unter Tonnen von Geröll begraben, konnte nur Xardas‘ Magie den Helden retten, der sich in die Inselhauptstadt Khorinis aufmachte, um das sagenumwobene Auge Innos zu finden. Anfangs von Miliz, Bürgern und Paladinen skeptisch betrachtet, schuf er sich mit harter Arbeit und hehren Heldentaten einen Ruf, der seinesgleichen suchte. Und so war es nicht weiter verwunderlich, dass sein Stahl, sein Bogen und seine Kenntnis der Magie es letztendlich waren, die den untoten Drachen, Avatar von Beliar, dem Gott des Todes, zerschmetterten. Der Held, begleitet von seinen Getreuen, die er im Laufe der Abenteuer um sich geschart hatte, segelte Richtung Festland.

Dort traf er auf die kläglichen Überreste des einst mächtigen Reiches von König Rhobar II., das mittlerweile fast vollständig von den Orks überrannt war. Mit kluger Taktik, mit der Macht des Schwertes und den läuternden Flammen seiner Magie setze er dem Krieg ein Ende und hoffte auf ein geeintes Myrtana, in dem Orks und Menschen wenn schon nicht in Freundschaft, dann doch wenigstens in Frieden leben würden. Gemeinsam mit seinem mächtigen Mentor, dem scheinbar ewig lebenden Schwarzmagier Xardas, zog er sich in ein Exil jenseits der bekannten Sphären zurück.

Doch der Frieden währte nicht lange, als ein Mensch namens Thorus, der unter den Orks in die höchsten Ränge aufgestiegen war, diese erneut ins Feld führte, um die Herrschaft über Myrtana zu erlangen. Nur mit Mühe konnte der zurückgekehrte namenlose Held einen erneuten Flächenbrand verhindern, und schwor sich, das Reich ein für alle mal zu einen - um dies zu gewährleisten, krönte er sich schließlich selbst zum neuen Herrscher und nannte sich fortan "Rhobar III".

Das Konzept Gothic funktioniert nicht ohne PB nicht. Das hat Götterdämmerung bewiesen und auch Arcania beweist es. Klar Arcania ist um Längen besser als Götterdämmerung aber ist halt doch kein Gothic. Die südlichen Inseln ein Teil der Gothic Welt der vom PB allenfalls mal am Rande erwähnt wurde ist Setting des Spiels. Die neue Hauptfigur ist eher blaß und hat wenig Identitäts Potenzial. Auch wenn das Spiel gerade am Anfang versucht Identifikation zu schaffen. Einige bekannte Charaktäre aus Gothic ist so ziemlich der einzige Bezug zu der Gothic Reihe. Die Darstellung des alten Helden als König Rhobar ist wenig erbauend für Gothic Fans. Somal er nicht sehr sympatisch rüber kommt. Die Spielewelt ist keine zusammen hängende Welt die erkundet werden kann. Zum erkunden gibt es sowieso recht wenig, die Welt wirkt sehr leer. Es fühlt sich nicht an wie ein Gothic und es ist kein Gothic! Ein klare Kaufempfehlung kann ich definitiv nicht geben. Als total schlecht würde ich es aber auch nicht bezeichnen. Fernab von dem Namen Gothic ist es noch ein solides Rollenspiel, mehr aber auch nicht!

Der letzte Sch... Von Open World kann keine Rede sein. Das Spiel ist linear wie Tetris. Zudem fehlt jegliche Spannung und Tiefe. Keine wirklich spannende Story, immer wieder dieselben langweiligen Kämpfe gegen die selben langweiligen Monster mit den mehr oder weniger selben Waffen. Dem Levelsystem fehlt ebenso jeglicher Anspruch. Man langweilt sich also 10 - 12 Stunden einer hin bis das Spiel letztlich unwiederuflich abstürzt (Kampf gegen Erhag). Ganz schlechtes Kino!

Klasse Game. Wenn man mit der Grafik zurecht kommt ist es ein spitzen Spiel mit ner Menge Aufgaben. An die Kampftechniken gewöhnt man sich recht zügig.Kleine Teile der Welt sind etwas leer für meinen Geschmack aber es ist in Ordnung.Also wenn jemand alte Spiele mag ist es nicht verkehrt dieses hier auch sein Eigen zu nennen und sich in dieser Welt einige schöne/spannende Stunden zu gönnen.

12 ???????????????????????????? ???????? ???????????? ???????????????? ???????????????? ????????????????

1) It has no open land map like the previous Gothic games. Instead it has an one line map with no return possibility. That an big downside of the game.
2) It has not swimming ability anymore like in the previous Gothic games. You just straight die by go into the water.
3) It has not guilds ability anymore like in the previous Gothic games. Instead you can choose between three armors at one mile stone, and choose between another three at the next mile stone.
4) It has not skills ability anymore like in the previous Gothic games. As an example: You just have alchemy as an default skill instead.
5) The main charakter and the friends charakters like Diego, Xhardas, Milten do not have the same faces and look anymore like in the previous Gothic games.
6) You have no sprint ability anymore at all. In the previous Gothic games was forward move sprint (fastest), run (faster) and walk (slowest). Now it's removed sprint complety. The default movement is walking (slowest) instead of the default movement run (faster) like in the previous Gothic games. You can change the movement to run as default by edit the config file by follow my Steam Guide. But even with this trick is the gameplay very slow.
7) There is no Mods at all. You can't find a single Mod at the Internet for this game. Not even one. Only some small Graphic Mod on Steam is found. But on Google search results is it complety invisible. Also are the existing Mods so small that i would even not call it as Mods. Its just some small changes on the game.
8) Instead of call the Game Gothic 4 they called it Arcania Gothic 4. The title is placed in the front like its an complety different game.
9) The game has no balancing. At the start of an new savegame, do one already die at the first monster. Only with cheats is an playthrough possible without die every few moments.
10) The developer has divided. With the separation from Piranha Bytes was an big quality loss follow. It show how big PB's quality impact was for the game.
11) The game (especially the boss fight) has lack of creativity. It's very poor and does not satisfy claims.
12) The game charaker is not bold and tough anymore. Instead he is exhausting and make bad jokes. Also does he make an uninterested impression. It's supposed to be an adventure game. What adventure has lack of motivation? The charakter just cry all game long how he not want this adventure, and he not suppose to save the word, and that he missing his wife so much. Its just super obnoxious.

Arcania ist tatsächlich das lächerlichste Spiel welches ich je gezockt hab. Einen sau dummen Titel zu entwickeln und eben Gothic draufzuklatschen um noch das letzte bisschen aus dem Franchise zu melken..da fehlen mir echt die Worte. Hab mich vor einigen Jahren mal durch das Spiel durchgequält um mir eine eigene Meinung zu bilden, und ich bin noch enttäuschter als es Reviews anmuten lassen.
Die Story ist absoluter Abfall, in jeglicher Hinsicht uninterressant und vorherschaubar. An Linearität kenne ich nichts vergleichbares. Nebenquests existieren quasi nicht. Die Charaktere, altbekannt sowie neu, sind schlicht nervig und teils auch super cringy. Keine Ahnung wer hier für das dialogue writing zuständig war, aber das könnte von einem zehnjährigen stammen.
Was soll man noch sagen; Grafik ist absoluter mist und die Kameraführung eine Katastrophe, Gegner werden einfach todgeklickt (das macht sogar Witcher 3 interessanter).

Alles in allem wahrscheinlich das schlechteste Spiel was man je auf den Markt geschmissen hat und eine Frechheit für jeden RPG Enthusiast und besonders für Fans der Gothic Reihe.
Verschwendet hierdran weder Zeit noch Geld!

Ich fand es gar nicht so schlecht, wie alle sagen. Es ist kein Gothic oder Risen, aber zumindest ein solides Spiel. Es ist vor allem ein sehr lineares Rollenspiel mit überschaubaren Inhalt. Die Welt ist zum Großteil eher leer und es gibt nur ein paar kleine Orte mit je eine handvoll Nebenaufgaben. Das Kampfsystem ist einfach, macht aber durchaus Spaß. Teilweise gibt es schlauchlevelartige Abschnitte und etwas nervige Laufwege. ArcaniA ist in vielen Bereichen einfach nur mittelmäßig. Nie wirklich schlecht, aber auch kein Highlight. Es ist ein kurzweiliges, spaßiges und lineares Action-RPG. Wer hier ein richtiges Open World Rollenspiel erwartet, der sollte die Finger von ArcaniA lassen, denn das ist es nicht. Es ist ein kurzweiliges Abenteuer mehr nicht und auch nicht weniger.

Wen man davon absieht das eigentlich ein Gothic 4 seien sollte, ist es ein gutes Action RPG das meiner Meinung sehr stark für Konsole angepasst wurde. Trotzdem aber ein schönes Spiel.

Dieses Game ist kein riesen Rollenspiel aller Witcher, Final Fantasy macht aber in seinen guten 15h Spieldauer auch sehr viel Spaß.

Gothic Fans bricht es das Herz das Arcania G4 Erschienen ist...So sehr das Bald Darauf Das G4 Gestrichen wird und es bei Arcania bleibt. Geplant war eine Fortsetzung Des Drei teiligen Epos Der so viele Spieler Herzen Begeisterte. Aber Daraus wurde nix, Denn Arcania war ein komplett anderes Spiel. Den Einzigen Bezug zu Gothic den Arcania Vorweisen konnte waren die Charaktere ...Besser gesagt Deren Namen weil selbst die Persönlichkeiten der Lieb gewonnenen Mitstreiter aus den Vorgängern nicht mehr die gleichen waren. Und somit Könnte man Arcania bestenfalls als Taugliches RPG bezeichnen von dem Gothic Fans lieber die finger lassen um keinen Schlaganfall zu bekommen.

-Pro Liste
-Flüssige schnelle Kämpfe
-Einsteiger Freundlich
-Schnell Belohnend
-Leicht mit zu verfolgen

-Contra Liste

-Unsichtbare Barrieren in der Welt (Zb wen man über einen stein hüpfen mag)
-Charakter Kann Weder Schwimmen Noch Sprinten (Sprinten ist ein zauber der 10sek anhällt)
-Lieblose Geschichte
-Wenig Abwechlung (Quests Wiederholen sich Unangenehm)
-Linearer Spiel verlauf
-schwaches Craft System
-Kleine Halb Open World
-Wenig Befridigendes Ende
-Schnell am Ende

Fazit

Ich Kann nicht behaupten das Arcania mich Abgeholt hat. Es hatte Tatsächlich manchen guten Ansatz aber am ende wurde dieser nicht richtig zu Ende gedacht. Die Bewegungs und Entscheidungsfreiheit ist so stark eingeschränkt Das man sich weder verlaufen kann, noch es einen großen Einfluss darauf hat wem man etwas sagt. Im crafting bereich gibt es Ein einziges taugliches schwert und selbst dieses wird am ende von einem Drop abgelöst.Die Geschichte war wenig mitreißend auch wenn die kämpfe Spaß gemacht haben...Das war dann Nebenbei auch das einzige was Spaß gemacht hat.Nichtmal Das sammeln konnte man genießen weil die Welt sehr karg und leer ist im Gegensatz zu titeln wie Gothic 1-3 oder Witcher 1-3. Für RPG anfänger Vieleicht zu empfehlen wen man Ganz viele Augen zudrückt. Für erfahrenere RPG Player Eher eine Dicke Enttäuschung. Man kann mit Arcania Spaß haben! (Nur nicht als Gothic Fan).

Trozdem Viel Spaß an Jene die sich Dennoch entscheiden es zu spielen.

Gothic III war viel besser, es war offener, man musste beim Klauen aufpassen das man nicht erwischt wird, man konnte sich mit dem Richtigen Teleportstein von überall aus teleportieren, man hatte viel mehr möglichkeiten sich als z.b. Magier/Nahkämpfer/ usw. fortzubilden. Das Spiel hatte viel mehr Input und es war Detailreicher. Leider verschwendetes Geld wobei man die Geschichte an sich und die Filmsequenzen loben muss.

What can possibly go wrong if you hand Gothic series to the devs who never ever created even a smallest RPG? Well, if you are going to purchase the game, you'll definitely learn. And despite the fact that description of the game (which I am going to quote a few times) promise a lot, it's all lies. Don't be fooled. There's no cake.

The game is awful from the start, I had a really huge desire to drop it right away. You are running through an empty cave as Rhobar III (used to known as the Nameless Hero) killing some monsters. It's really boring and the cave is endless. If you managed to finish it, you'll learn that this was just a dream of some nameless (of course) shepherd who's going to be the new protagonist. Once you finish a pretty big tutorial, Rhobar III, who is possessed by some evil power, will destroy your village. And you are going to avenge him.
Zitat:
A deep, strong story embedded in the successful Gothic universe franchise accompanied by highly diversified side quests. And most can be solved in different ways.

I am not gonna tell you how the story evolves because it's hardly a story. Even compared to simple plots from the original Gothic series created by game designers without a proper story writer, it's abysmal. There's no antagonist, just a bunch of dull villains you will never remember, there's no even slightly interesting twists, no logic and motivations, just a number of simple fetch and kill quests.

As for solving quests with different ways, there are a few times in the main story where you can choose which fetch or kill quest to solve or which way to reach your destination point (via teleport or through a teeny tiny dungeon). How's that for diversity? Don't be fooled, you can't even choose different answers in dialogues, the hero will gladly agree to every fetch quest without any reason.

Dialogues overall are horrid, depressing and redundant. Especially with the ones you know from the original series: Diego, Milten, Gorn, Lester and a bunch of other characters like Lord Hagen. I've really tried to read everything but in the end I was just skipping this nonsense once I realized this is just a verbiage and graphomania. Believe me, fetch and kill quests can be solved without these instructions.
Zitat:
A COMPLETELY OPEN WORLD: Enjoy the complete freedom & the almost unlimited options known from the Gothic series.

What a bold claim for a bunch of passages. It was written on purpose because 'open world' label is definitely selling the game much better than 'we were going to make open world but ended up with hallways from rail shooters'. To be frank, it's slightly better than that, especially in the beginning, but in the end it feels like The Witcher 2.

Freedom, my a★se. In this poorly executed console-ish game you can't even get off a cliff because invisible walls are everywhere, even in the very unexpected places. Not to mention that our nameless hero, who grew up on a small island, can't swim. If you managed to avoid invisible walls and jump into a lake, he literally dies on the smooth surface of water. There is also a great deal of doors which can't be opened and a few stone walls like that as well: you can interact with them and nothing happens or you get a message like 'you can't do that now'. Some of them do open and break when the time is right and you picked up the right quest, some don't. There's also a big city called Setarrif on the edge of the world but you can't enter it. Fascinating.

Level design is amateur at the very best. It's sloppy. It lacks ideas. It's repetitive. If you like to explore game's world thoroughly like me, leaving no stone unturned, it's almost a waste of time: there's no environment storytelling and no rewarding for your curiosity but some chests awkwardly hidden among redundant assets. That makes exploration really boring. I am also wondering what genius decided that you need a special repulsive camera for looting dead enemies. I was forced to press 'E' very quickily to loot everything instantly just to skip it.

When the hero jumps, it feels like he's walking on the moon because gravity in the game's world is both strange and discouraging. There are also a few animations for interacting with some objects in the game like stirring something in the big pot, sawing wood and other options which remind you of original Gothic. The problem is, some important mechanics are missing. Your hero can't sleep. You can lie on the bed but you can't really use it to rest a bit. So, if you wish to skip a rainy night which prevents you from exploring, you just can't. Deal with it.

The combat system is really simple. Just click your left mouse button and dodge hits you can't block or interrupt in any way or level up your hero as a mage with items for mana and mana regeneration and easily kill even the most deadly enemies from a distance using thunderbolt which stuns for 4 seconds everyone but two or three bosses—this is way more satisfying than sword fights.

To sum it up, if you are looking for a Gothic kind of game, Arcania is definitely fail to satisfy your desire. The whole game feels like a weird flawed MMORPG with 3rd person camera but with all these exclamation points above quest givers, quest items and enemies you ought to kill for a quest one can get a feeling it ought to be isometric.

There's no living and breathing atmospheric world, no NPCs with daily schedules, no ambient dialogues (just a few stupid barks) and no teachers to learn something from them. No hidden places with loot but a few boring secrets and no rewarding for exploration. Everything is plain and simple. The game is bad even as a standalone title. And more than awful as Gothic series successor.

Still, it can be a pretty good time killer if you are desperate for an RPG game.

P.S. This game was divided in two parts (you can finally enter Setarrif in the second game which approximately has only 4 hours to beat) due to the greed and agony of its publisher JoWood struggling to survive after a number of incompetent moves since the release of Gothic 3. They been bleeding a popular series dry with no luck and were officially filed for bankruptcy.

Good riddance to them, I'd say, but it's not that simple. These beautiful people now working in THQ Nordic and recently announced a Gothic remake with Gothic Playable Teaser, giving the series into the hands of inexperienced developers once again (as it also was with Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods) forcing them to make a Gothic game over the one they had in mind. So don't put too much hope on it. Probably, another Arcania is on the way with a taste of YOBA sweetened by familiar places and story.

This is like 3rd time I played the game I think, but first time on the steam
This one I like compared to 3rd ( you can check my review on that also )
The game feels just more enjoyable and relaxing. Love the store simple but nicely mix up.
Now this game also have problems and bugs just like 3rd, but honestly still more enjoyable to play.
Everything is better here, combat, weapons, magic
Love the world.love the enemies, many many secrets and locations to explore
I know I am one of that 1 % that prefer this game over 3rd any time, just feels more enjoyable and relaxing to explore and play .

I waited I do not know how many years before playing Arcania. I remember I bought Arcania in the collector’s edition box, but I have never had a powerful enough PC to play it.

Finally, I was able to play it and finish it and I can say that Arcania is one of the worst sequels for a game ever. It is not just a saying, I really mean that. The whole story about the old hero, now possessed by a demon, and the new hero is just the transposition of the “bad” PiranhaBytes that did not join project Arcania and the new developers’ team. New hero, I have bad news for you: you suck.

PRO:
• The graphics have sensibly improved.
• I like certain new ideas: the canes in the swamp where you can be trapped, and it is difficult to come out from. It is realistic.

CONs:
• There are collisions and invisible walls everywhere.
• You just need to follow a certain path, there is no freedom during the gameplay. I mean both when you need to reach a place on the map and in regard to the personal choices of the protagonist in the plot.
You can choose basically nothing. The only thing you can choose is if you want to become a Warrior, a Mage and a Ranger(?). wait wait wait it is even worse! You do not need to earn it, there is no quest or something like that. You just level up and you choose where to add skill points.
Exploring surrounding areas does not make sense and I will explain to you why: for the whole game you need to find 3 different typology of objects in order to receive 3 different rewards BUT if you do NOT want to die then you do not want to jump around looking for hidden spots. The reason is if you jump close to the edge in 99% of the cliffs, you just slide down without any chance to jump or make any movement at all. You just need to be patient and wait in front of the screen the whole time and when your fun and slow slide ends… you just die! And the best part is when you reach a certain spot where you do not die, but you will be stuck there forever. This is why you want to run or walk without jumping and when you reach the edge of the cliff the character will just hit an invisible wall. Do you wanna die? Then you just need to jump a little bit. Unplayable.
You cannot swim anymore. Why? You could do it in the previous Gothic! Even in the first one! You could even jump in the water from different heights without dying. I miss PiranhaBytes a lot.
• Often during a fight, if you are in a spot where the enemy is not able to come… it magically will appear next to you and hit you immediately. Even worse: if during a fight you run away like a coward, the enemy will stop following you and it will go back to its original position slowly. During that period of time, it will not react to anything and it will be immortal, making it pointless to attack it. Sometimes, just for fun, I start running after them during their weird walk, I overtake them, and I could wait for them in the original spot where I found them.
• Most of the NPCs share the same body model and say exactly the same thing with the same voice.
Instead of creating new monster and animal models… they have just given them different strengths, and they added something in front of their name like “XXX NAMEOFTHEANIMAL”, “YYY NAMEOFTHEANIMAL”, “ZZZ NAMEOFTHEANIMAL”.
• I played the hardest difficulty: GOTHIC. I never used a single health or mana potion in spite of being a Mage, and I only did it for the final enemy.
• [spoiler] At the end, why is Thorus, a warrior, joining a magic ritual??? WHY!!! IT DOES NOT EXPLAIN THAT AT ALL! Did he become a mage in the spare time, and we do not know it? Was he hit by a magic lightning bolt in the buns? Well, I think we will never know. [/spoiler]

In the end I would say that if you are a real fan of the Gothic series, then Arcania is a disappointing experience.

The game...

is good... I mean you can walk around... It is open world but doesn't feel like open world... actually it is not open world but it is trying to feel like it is open world.
is good... you don't need to learn how to swim... water areas are just for environmental feeling effect...
is good... the game has lots of bugs... you kill lots of bugs walking around.. and lots of bugs kill your desire to play the game... in both ways lots of killing goes around...
is good... It is good for your English... the dept of the conversations and the story is very very simple... so you feel like doing some listening with Rosetta Stone or attending to some online English listening exercise... you can choose some simple responses too wohoooo.
Is good... you get the quest... walk walk walk... kill the monster walk walk walk... take the gold.
Is good... especially for your heart and emotions... because it is monotonous... not exciting... I mean good for your health.
Is good... you hit slowly but enemy hits fare more slowly... When they start for an attack you can dodge back wait 15 minutes to finish their move then move forward to kill them... Easy... You may finish the game in one go without dying... If you do not die because of boredom.
Is good... makes you realize how unnecessarily you spend for unnecessary things.
Is good... this game can keep you busy for years... complete a quest, get bored, close the game, open it next month, complete a quest, close the game... goes on life time... amazing.
Is good... Not many spells around to confuse you... I mean the game Magica has plenty when compared to this one. You fireball then fireball again... then fireball... Never mind.
Is good... it is not a RPG but rather a walking simulator with some spells, weapons, enemies and lots of quest like conversations.
Is good... No I am not comparing it with Elder Scrolls 5... That is definitely unfair... But I can compare it with Neverwinter Nights.
Is good... to keep you away from RPGs... even from the PC... so you do something far more exciting... like solving some Sudoku.
Is good... made me so out of mood and bored... I couldn't even become offensive and sarcastic as I used to be... made me bored and polite.


This time I was overdose polite.... Happy?

Itsa freaking corridor runner rpg with a little bit OP mage. Just a tiny bit over the top. And a whole train of graphical issues and poor optimization (in the last city its like 20 fps with 16gb ram, ryzen 3750h and geforce 2060 rtx)

Buyer BEWARE. Unplayable. I have looked up solutions online and none of them worked for me. Mouse will not work. Using Windows 10 and attempted to use compatibility mode for Win 7 and Win XP versions to no avail. Some sites say the full screen needs to be changed but I can't access the settings to change it and some file path fix suggestions I saw posted online were a dead end. It's too old for newer systems and no patches seem to have been released to address the issue. I contacted support for this game. If there are any solutions offered later on I will post and update.

This is obviously an older game. I played the entire game. The story isn't the best and it's not the worst. It's the good old ''go do this, go kill that'' with some spectacular visual bugs. Even with the fixes, you will have graphic issues. People's faces as well as entire buildings can be black. You may see through the world. You can jump almost anywhere and most of your deaths will come from that since the combat is not hard at all. Save often if you play this (I mean about every two minutes) because you will likely get stuck in some rocks or something stupid like that. Fall of Setarrif is a lot better when it comes to graphics but it's not a standalone game. It should just have been a DLC.

I know that playing this game in 2020 is a bit late but at least it's not never. The story is interesting take it from someone who loves playing RPG games and the graphics have aged well. There are only two minuses the combat is janky and you are the world's most prized errand boy.
Never the less enjoyed it.

Best way to describe this game is if Dark Souls and Oblivion had a baby and that baby grew up and had some smack down with dragon age with choices, and for the icing on the cake! add all the sarcasm you can muster and that my fellow gamers is Arcania in a nutshell. ending was weird but good game.

Before I start my review I have a confession to make. Back in the day I never played any of the Gothic games. I know it's sacrilegious. Lots of my friends did and loved it. They raved about the game and how good it was. That being said my review of this game is coming from that perspective of not playing the ones that came before.
The game has decent enough graphics especially considering it came out in 2010. The controls, again, are decent enough. Things could be tighter but they don't hinder defeating enemies. Character progression feels sort of dumbed down as in there is a smallish set of skills you can rank up on leveling. Pick your skill and get +1% health and +1melee power for example. Not many choices or ability to add attribute points to various stats.
The combat action is fairly quick and gives the player limited control over what to do. Quick press weak but quick hit, hold the button down and charge up a big heavy hit. .Overall the game in my opinion feels too easy. I have it on Hard setting now and rarely die or have trouble with enemies. Just mixing in spells, various melee, and ranged attacks means you can always attack your enemy with their weakness. Cast a spell and stun an enemy, run in bash them a few times, dodge back and fire off a few arrows, etc. It allows you to take on whole packs of enemies.
The story is there and average enough. Didn't really suck me in that I had to know what the next step was. At the same time it wasn't so bad that I just completely ignored what was going on in the game world. Good amount of side quests if you choose to do them. The voice acting in the game for the dialogue was good most of the time.
The game did feel a bit like it was not finished for certain things or stuff was thrown in just because. For example you can use many things in the game, but they do nothing. Meaning your character goes through the motion like sitting in a chair, turning a skewer over a fire, using a forge, but that's the extent of what happens. Just the graphical effect of using it.

I don't want this review to be too long so will wrap it up. I do recommend the game, but ONLY if you get it on sale cheap. It doesn't do anything great or introduce any new innovative gameplay. The game though was pleasant enough running around bashing things, clearing dungeons, finding loot, and exploring(the game does seem to reward exploring all the nooks and out of the way places with chests and items) that it has me coming back until I beat it.

If you are looking for a continuation of the good, old, difficult Gothic (like I was), then I definitely do not recommend you this game. The game was enjoyable for about 10 hours, but the level of difficulty even on Nightmare is far too low. Character and monster models are good, especially the Swampshark (my favorite). The plot doesn't knock you off your feet, neither do the poorly written characters. In the 32 hours I spent in the game, the first 10 were the most interesting. Ever since I left the city on the swamp, my enjoyment kept going downhill. The game started to get boring and I stopped caring about the plot. I simply got tired of it. There are plenty of underdeveloped and ill-considered game mechanics here. The most disappointing ones for me was the lack of ingredients to craft an armor piece (there litteraly wasn't enough silk in the game world to craft it!) and the fact that it was impossible to buy crossbow bolts, which made their numbers very limited, while arrows were absolutely abundant. To sum up, in my opinion this is a mediocre hack and slash set in the world of Gothic with a very low difficulty level, even when it's set to Nightmare, with average plot and poorly written characters.

Surprisingly good old game with impressive quality level design and environment, awesome music and interesting non-repetitive scenes to explore. Totally worth one playtrough at weekend. It is short enough to avoid becoming boring and honestly does as much as possible to entertain the player. Yes, it is very easy and linear, and there are many minor flaws already mentioned by other reviewers. Though personally I enjoyed my time here. There's a good story, but bad character who dared to mess up with the old Gothic fans, a big mistake. Just play this story as independent action game (not an RPG) in the world of Gothic, it's a decent game which is way better and polished than a lot of modern titles.

I was going to write a good review (more like neutral+) until the last ~7 hours of the game that were tedious and boring (after the swamp).

I had fun in the first part, even if the game is very linear, i found it pretty relaxing and interesting. But then it changed into an endless dungeon crawler and i got super tired of killing for the 150th time the same kind of enemy. It really feels like they tried to make the game longer with very little work, and the end game is even worse.. super rushed! What a shame :/

While it is a much more straightforward and easier game than other Gothics or RIsen, it is still a fairly enjoyable RPG as a whole. Overall a 7/10 fairly simple yet satisfying game for a casual stroll. If you want a more immersive/difficult game then I recommend to treat Risen 1 as a Gothic 4 instead.

Upsides:
- graphics (still looks pretty nice on max settings)
- high variety of viable builds - hybrid builds are very solid here (e.g. melee with magic support, bows with melee etc)
- good music/sounds
- a lot of items in the world can be interacted with (e.g. cutting wood, smoking with water pipe)

Downsides:
- could use a bit more side quests/activities, especially near the end of the game
- ranged combat tree should have had at least one skill that boosts reloading speed
- sometimes enemy hitboxes can be wonky (at times you get hit even though you were at the enemy side when he was performing a strong attack in other direction)
- why is there no merchant that sells bolts for crossbows.. crossbows are fun to use here but unfortunately a very limited amount of ammo can be acquired for them (plenty of arrows and arrow merchants though).

I pushed through to the end. It was not worth it. The only sense of changing difficulty is increased enemy HP. you never feel any stronger because they scale just as fast as you defeating any sense of progress. Most of the quests are fetch quests and all the filler is more random encounters which were not fun to go through due to the scaling issue i mentioned.

I remember how exited i was when i heard they will make another Gothic game. Little did i know how disappointed i will be to learn that you will not play with the nameless hero, but with a random guy.

Combat was bad, clunky and slow. I think there were fewer items than previous games. Story was meh.

As someone who has played through Gothic 1,2,3,Risen 1,2,3,ELEX and loved all of them. This game is horse shyt. It in no way resembles the previously stated games and I get the shyts any time I think of the 4 hours I wasted on this trash. Luckily they cleaned up their act after this game and went back to making good games again. Don't waste your time on this stinker.

It's a buggy mess. Avoid at all costs!

Will not start unless patched from external sources.
Has a myriad of bugs (solid black character textures on certain settings, solid rain you can't see through, ...).
Worst thing: It somehow crashes on certain NPC encounters -> had to stop because there is no manual fix for this.

Quite a fun game, though not very much like the earlier Gothic games. For most people that would be a plus I imagine.

Modern quality of life features are present, such as quest markers and a minimap, also a limited fast-travel system I found useful a time or two. Voice acting is pretty terrible, I turned voice to zero and turned on subtitles ... which I do for most games. Substantially improved the experience.

Iam a fan of RPG's and I loved the Gothic games back in the day so I was happy to dive into a Gothic spin-off game. I'd heard some folks say they dont like this game and I can understand their view point. It is a little more simple than the older Gothic games but thats kinda what I like about it. I can jump back in after not playing for a while, pick up the controls and be off on my adventure again. Not all games have to be a masterwork to be fun, the world is interesting and the game still looks really nice for its age. I enjoy the combat well enough and find myself wanting to do just one more quest before bed (at 4am). Thats why Im happy to recommend this game, give it a chance and see for yourself what its like.

Unfortunately I found ArcaniA to not be up to the same standard as Gothic 1,2 and 3 in playability and scope and combat. It was just nowhere near a game I would expect from the Piranha Bytes franchise and ability and unfortunately it is not the developers fault as much as the people they have to do business with to get the games operational. I love the series in general and want to see better in future games. We like the same playability with better graphics and the same systems we have come to be used to and accommodated with in our games. In the Gothic universe keep it the way we have expected it and just revitalise and be creative in the stories and environments and so forth.

I remember when Risen came out. It was getting mixed reviews but I bought it anyway. Great decision! I went after ArcaniA with the same attitude.. Bad decision. The in-game settings menu is just not responsive to any type of input. I've tried it all. Tried swiping my keyboard to see if any key worked. Nothing. I decided to uninstall.

Look, I had fun playing this. Finished the whole game, found all secrets, and so on. But I can’t, in good conscience, recommend this still. I knew what I was getting into: the Gothic series, while close to my heart, has always been janky and rough around the edges. So, I was fine with that, but this game... lacks creativity, honestly.

They simplified the skill-system to the point of it barely even an RPG anymore. The decisions you make are completely inconsequential, fights are extremely easy to cheese, since the AI is predictably braindead and the entire game feels as if the developers had absolutely no idea what to make of this. The main story makes no sense, and it takes like... 15-20 hours-ish to even start, beforehand all you got is completely unimportant fetch quests that add nothing to the main story and the characters it introduces will all be left behind when you move on.

They brought back fan-favorite characters and then did nothing with them. You talk to them a few times and they send you on some fetch quests, and that’s about it. They are also irrelevant for the main plot, you could cut all of them out of the game, would make no difference, they are here for fanservice, nothing else.

Oh, and the game does NOT look like the screenshots. The shadows and lighting effects are completely broken, graphical glitches everywhere (I more then once could see through the character I was talking to, because there were literal gaps in the textures...), lip-synching is... horrid, sometimes doesn’t work at all and on top of that, big effects, like the max out fireball sometimes dropped the FPS to what felt like 10... considering I have mid tier gaming laptop from almost a decade after this game was released, there’s no excuse for that.

Also, this is NOT an open world RPG. It pretends to be, but you are HEAVILY railroaded with very, VERY little freedom in where can you actually go.

If you want to play a janky RPG-light and have already played pretty much everything from Pyranha Bytes, then I guess you could do worse if it’s on a sale, but that’s the best I can say.

I like mediocre RPGs as much as the next person, but this game was truly horrible. It really starts stretching everything after about 2/3rds into the story. If you really want to play this, just do yourself a favor and lower the difficulty unless you enjoy whacking enemies all day. Also, definitely grab the camera mod by Etrusker.
