2010-12-03: November 2010 Game of the Month: Arcania- Gothic 4

on Briley's Writing Conclave

His Fazit:

Overall I felt that Arcania: Gothic 4 was a great game to play and I did personally enjoy the plot all the way until the end. There are quite a bit of cliche and unmemorable moments plastered throughout the game as well so it certainly does not deserve the "greatest RPG of all time title". It does however provide a fresh experience, and easily maneuverable game-play for the RPG noobs and novices. If you aren't fond of the more daunting RPG titles out there, this game is certainly one to check out.

The best system to play the game on is a PC as the graphics and interface are better suited. The game is also available for the Xbox 360, where I did most of my playing.

I believe that all RPG fans out there should at least give this one a try, and I don't mean pop the game in and play for five minutes only to toss it out or trade it. A serious try for a game like this is investing some time into your character- you just may find after playing for a bit that you too enjoy venturing in Arcania.
