It takes a little initial effort to learn the control scheme (just a little) but it pays off in spades. Gothic is one of the best games I've ever played.

I remember when i started Gothic 2. There's this lone goblin you run into right away and I died like 10 times before I figured out how to fight. I almost gave up there. later though I really came to like the system which is one reason I dislike Gothic 3 so much.

Gothics 1 and 2 will always be on my hardrive. Anytime I need to wash the taste of a filthy new game out of my mouth, either of these two will do the trick. Keep 'em right next to the Spiderweb library )

Ironkeep Studios released a patch for Gothic a long time ago. But here's a link to it.


It still has some annoying bugs on it according to the forum, but might be worth it for some people.

Yeah I remember those good old days, dealing swamp weed on a magical prison island. I found out the Gothic team continued the legacy with the Risen series.

Gothic was never really my kind of game. Loved the story, hated the gameplay/controls. They felt like they were made in the 80's

Just picked up the Gothic Universe pack on Steam. For some reason Gothic 1 doesn't work right out of the gate with Win7 64-bit. Had to find the Steam executable and Run As Admin.

I HIGHLY recommend installing all of the following:

ThielHater's Texturepatch (upgrades the textures to make it look more like Gothic 2)

Also, for some reason Gothic is still frame locked below 30 FPS. This is why it looks choppy in some places, even with heavy graphics hardware. To fix, install the following:

Player Kit (required to enable mods)

Gothic FPS Patch

Quote from Steam forums for instructions:

"For future reference for anyone else wanting to fix this all you need to do is install the Player Kit and then apply the GothicFps patch by running it and pointing it to GothicMod.exe (found in the System subfolder of wherever you installed Gothic to). If you are using Vista or Windows 7 you will need to launch GothicFps as an administrator by right-clicking it and choosing "Run as administrator"."

This game will even run on netbooks.
