The problem is that JoWood managed to mess up a frightening amount of games they published.
Remember what I wrote about "The book of unwritten ales" ?
Remember what I wrote about the re-relerast of the NLT (TDE's Northland Trilogy) ?

I might be wrong, but the overal, German perception of JoWood is that of company that wants quick moneyy - and that means it even releasesbug-infested games,
whereas they could sell much moe of the game if it just wan't that buggy.

The impression of German gamers of Jood releasing a "half-baked" game ( = Gothic 3) was so much devastating and lasting that it is today THE example to German gamers of how NOT to do it …
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
