    yeah cause thats how powerful an xbox 360 is…. an i7 @ 3 GHz is the cost of an xbox 360 by itself.

    So i played it and countered the FIRST bug… Oh dear… and after that i can’t talk to NPC. :D ahh good old days with Gothic bugs.

    So, it’s not the Xbox 360 port and it was developed specifically for PC so you don’t need Geforce 295 GTX and e.t.c. Everything is smooth and next gen.

    Graphics are fucking gorgeous. Physics are brilliant. Try killing few sheeps :D SO much fun :D

    but this game is so Western that even European graphic option does not help. Dialogs are complete crap i can’t listen to this. Just can’t.
    Our hero is an ugly bitch.

    So far so … Ok actually. Too much Western shit in this game that makes it complete crap.

    western Developers: GET THE FUCK OUT of Eastern EUROPEAN Roleplaying games

    I can’t even kill NPC i want to kill. I can’t do shit.

    Son, i’m dissapoint. This is so casual, there are even options that can enable you to turn off Roleplaying activities.

    This is your Consolised piece of shit generation. EAT it. =\

    Considering how most of Europe (excluding Russia cause its a fucking huge country) Europe is predominantly on the western side of the world

    @5 I mean Eastern Europe.

    PS: Interface is like i’m playing MMORPG game. There is even a Mini Map. A fucking mini map in my Gothic game.

    Something is wrong in gaming.

    @7 i played and finished Risen long time ago since release. It’s a little bit better, but storyline is still not at the old Gothic levels.

    ErzaTWATzus all bitter and butthurt over his pieceofshit3 being the inferior version… again (do i see a pattern of inferior shoddy&shitty crap hardware). And guess what: delayed. Really takes you back, 4D, 120fps, 599US Dollars, Riiiiidge Racing, Massive Damage, This is Livi…Shit.

    Really? Cause just now i read an impression by someone and he said the graphics are very good, the ‘Gothic’ feeling is back. You can go anywhere, where the eye can see. He seems to really like it.

    I don’t expect a perfect combat system in these games,if the combat works…i’m happy and if the atmosphere is there and some cool quests…hey i’m happy!!! :)

    @13 Graphics are gorgeous, physics are frekin’ brillant. But everything else is just absolute crap and casual nonsence.
    They just destroyed Gothic. Western devs must never touch something that was developed in Eastern Europe.
    It’s too casual. Even interface is like from MMORPG game. There are no atmoshphere.
    In my recent memory there are dialogs worse than my english :D seriously. They are so bad…
    This is a big dissapointment. There is even an option that let you turn off Roleplaying activities. Thats just crazy. There is a MINI map. Mini map in the gothic game…
    Quests? Cool quests? Forget about it. There are 5-6 crappy quests that are boring as hell.

    Ah damn man, that really doesn’t sound good at all :(. Wasn’t expecting that when i saw those gameplay videos. There’s another RPG coming out this year called Two Worlds II and previews are very positive about it, let’s hope that one is a true RPG then :(.

    I’ll definitely hold any judgement of my own though before playing it, but this sure doesn’t sound good. In terms of being a RPG…it sounds like this is more like Fable? A simplified RPG?

    Why are you talking about Eastern Europe? Last I checked, Germany is Western Europe. Both the old Gothic developer Piranha Bytes and the new one, Spellbound are from Germany.
