HASH(0x9b737b28) out of 5 stars Among the Best RPG's EVER Nov. 24 2005
By W. R. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
I'll keep this short... cause the time it takes me to type this will take time away from playing Gothic II Gold!

This RPG is among the best I've played (over 20 years of gaming).

This new release of a 3 year old game is far better than most recent games, the story, the exploration, the character development... even the graphics, all great, all well done.

If you played Gothic II there is almost 30 hours (!) of additional content, including a new land, expanded dialog of well-known characters, new items, new spells, improved visuals... and tougher gameplay to keep it a challenge, certainly worth the price.

The bad... you can't use old saves, you must start a new games, still, so much is new and fresh from the older version, starting over is a joy.

Replay value is very high, so many choices for characters, friends, enemies and career paths that each game will be a challenge and does not get old or typical.

So, for less than 20 bucks you can get about 150 hours (or more) of quality gameplay, a bargain for sure.

HASH(0x9b4032ac) out of 5 stars Discovering Interface is Half the Fun!! Feb. 11 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I haven't played all the way through the game yet, but am having a pretty good time so far. Gothic 2 plays like all RPG's should play in my opinion. Lots of quests, lots of loot and a non-linear game design.

My only gripe is this. As someone who never played the Gothic series before, I felt a little out of the loop in regards to the storyline. Discovery is half the fun in these games though, so that's a minor gripe. My major gripe is the lack of documentation that came with my copy of the game. All that came with it was a Quick Start Manual that is all of 16 pages long... and only 8 of those pages contain info helpful to playing the game. Only the most rudamentary interface commands are given. The rest you will have to figure out yourself (fan-sites were helpful to me). Also, the interface itself takes alot of getting used to as it's not very intuitive.

For the money, Gothic 2 is a huge bargain. Many hours of RPG goodness with just a dash of interface frustration. If you're into RPG's, this is a must buy.

HASH(0x9b43dce4) out of 5 stars You must give this game a try.. I am sure you won't regret Nov. 21 2005
By Tarek Darwish - Published on Amazon.com
Personally, the Gothic series (gothic 1, gothic 2, and the gothic 2 addon NOTR) is by far the best games I have ever played, and I really played a lot of games. This is the only game that kept me playing almost 30 hours straight. I was attrackted by its environement, storyline, music, graphics, you name it. Everything about this game is awesome. I played each game at least 5 times. It was disappointing that the Gothic 2 addon was delayed for so long. At that time, I couldn't wait so I bought the german version eventhough I don't know german at all. Using some pathces, it was ok to sue the german version trying to read subtitle fasgt while hearing strange language :)I have ordered this late coming Gothic 2 gold nevertheless to play it yet again now in english for both hearing and subtitles :)

HASH(0x9d1c1f00) out of 5 stars One of the top 5 games I have ever played March 20 2006
By R. Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Make no mistake about it, this game has more than a few bugs and sudden desktop crashes. It is also one of the most immersive and totally enjoyable games I have ever played. I am 59 years old and have played literally hundreds, if not thousands of video games since the 70's. This game has it all as far as role-playing games go. One bit of advice about this game is save often save often, save often. Oh and one more thing, be sure to save often.

HASH(0x9bb5f0b4) out of 5 stars Gothic 2, Night of the Raven Dec 15 2006
By Christophe the Pistoff - Published on Amazon.com
First off, I would recommend playing Gothic 1 first, just so you'll become familiar with the world and gameplay, and then play Gothic 2. The Night of the Raven expansion not only adds on a whole new area of the world, but toughens up most of the monsters/creatures also. Yes, you do have to start the whole game over again, but the new characters make it more fun. Yes, the game freezes or crashes sometimes, so frequent saves are highly recommended, but the the game itself is just so much fun to play, that it's worth it. It does start out slow, you have to take your time and choose your battles wisely at first; if you come across something you haven't seen before and want to engage it, save first, that way if you get whacked quickly, you can reload at the same spot and retreat. As far as the controls being clunky; I say HA! BALDERDASH! Just go to OPTIONS then CONTROLS and you can configure which keys you want use to perform the actions you want them to, it's very simple. Overall, this is my favorite game, I've replayed it many times using one of the three character choices (mercenary, mage, or paladin) and I always have fun. Don't expect to start solving quests right off the bat; as in real life you have to take baby steps first before you learn how to run. To help make the game a bit more fun (and easier) search online for one of the walkthroughs that are available and print it out, they really help if you get stuck. And remember, it's just a game! HAVE FUN!
