Gothic 3 - Review @ Atomic Gamer

by Dhruin, 2006-12-04 21:05:38

The latest Gothic 3 review comes from Atomic Gamer, with a score of 61%.  Here's a snip on "the biggest RPG tragedy I've seen in years":

I'm going to start this review off with kind of an odd statement: Gothic 3 is one of the best games that you shouldn't play.

Now that I've gotten that over with, let's discuss why. Gothic 3 is an RPG sequel by German developer Piranha Bytes and Austrian publisher JoWood, and it includes a huge, open world, plenty of items, skills, spells, and abilities, excellent graphics, and multiple paths through the game along with multiple endings. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, it's also got a boatload of bugs and issues regarding combat, quests, NPC issues, frame rates, crashes, and AI that will make almost any gamer want to smash your keyboard in half at one point or another during this game's forty-plus-hour ride.
