Default Arcania - Review @ PC Format

December 10th, 2010, 01:54
PC Format has a review of Arcania, resulting in the harsh score of 51%. Describing the game as "ludicrously easy" and lacking depth, the summary tells it all:
Like an MMO, there's an undefinable something that keeps you playing, probably far beyond what your sanity can properly stand. But it's not an MMO, far from it (obviously), so any slack you can cut games from that genre can't be granted to Gothic 4. It's got none of the depth of the previous Gothic games and is effectively just a relatively compelling hack-and-slash game. Hardcore fans will be disgusted, while casual slasher players probably won't even know it exists. Even if they did, it won't be offering them much they haven't seen before.
More information.

I think the difficulty comment is just plain wrong. Playing on Gothic you will have plenty of need for healing potions and alchemy.

The reviewer in question is David Brown (formerly of PC Zone) and he's talking specifically about Gothic 4, not any other Gothic game in the series and PC Format stands by his assessment.

Alistair isn't talking about any other Gothic game either, he's talking about the difficulty setting "Gothic" in ArcaniA.
