"A disappointment"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Considering the expanse and epicness of the previous Gothic games, this one's a massive letdown. It's gone from an open world with a lot of RPG elements that made the series interesting, to a very railroaded, single-playthrough game with terrible combat, lackluster graphics (with a lot of glitches) some very scary-looking NPC models (scary in a badly-thought-out way), limited monster types repeated throughout the game with different names, and a severe lack of fun, with a predictable storyline. If you liked the previous Gothic games, this will probably make you very depressed, and a lot of people (myself included) think it's not worthy of the Gothic title.

"Good Game"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

There are a lack of monsters in game, a predictable storyline. The graphics are good, its a fun game to play if you have extra time.

"Boring"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

One of the worst games in a long time. Amazingly boring. It seems like the star of Gothic is dieing. I am melancholic when I look back at how great the first one was compared to this :( A game for rainy days and when one has nothing else to do…

Description

Arcania is a Fantasy Action game set in a rich world that invites the player to explore all of its innumerable attractions and details. Different climate zones, abundant flora and fauna, subterranean vaults, and cities and castles with unique architecture await the adventurous player. Clouds darken the skies, weather effects such as wind and heavy rain influence the game world which remains endlessly fascinating with its amazing graphics, day and night cycles, and a stunning display of light and shadow. Wonderfully atmospheric music and top-of-the-line sound effects create a truly immersive playing environment. A multitude of entertaining and challenging quests, challenging combat, mysterious NPC characters and a sophisticated plot guarantee many hours of highly entertaining gameplay.

Features:
  • DAY NIGHT / WEATHER CYCLE: a unique environment model with dynamic and controllable weather system and day night cycle
  • LAYERED ARMOR AND CRAFTING SYSTEM: allows the player to design and forge the equipment they use in game.
  • MOUNTS ABILITIES: Not just your average beasts of burden, the mounts in Arcania provide different advantages to the various gameplay mechanics.
  • NPC LIFE CYCLE AND ADAPTIVE AI: Time of day, season and the day of year all impact NPC routines and reactions, creating a world that is dynamic and realistic.
  • COMBAT SYSTEM WITH SPECIAL MOVES AND LEVELING: The intuitive system offers a gradual learning curve that evolves into a complex multi opponent model that strives to break free from the button mashing system in other games!
