Gothic 2

Postby Orfinn » Jun 12 2007, 10:27

I recently brought Gothic 2. I like it alot and theres quite ALOT to do. The characters, NPC's gives a nice atmosphere. Havent played the first game but still I got hooked on it, reminds me of Morrowind, maybe a bit less freedom but that dosent matter much. Xardas the Necromancer is a cool guy, brought me back to life thanks to that magical armor thingy from the first game :)

The only thing I find messy is the combat system, its feels a bit clumsy. But I may get used to it sooner or later, Im only at lvl 2 i think...still with a dagger and now I gotta hunt and skin 6 wolves to prove my worth for a hunter in the town named Karkasha or smthing..

The graphics are good, but not as spectacular as morrowind, as long as it is not walking squares around. I got surpised to see lip sync in a old game like this one (Gothic 2 got realeased in 2001/2..I think.

Gothic 2 is worth a shoot trying, and I can say that out from what little I have played.

Minus 20 lashes? How does that work?

Don't worry about combat system. As soon as you make some progress you'll see how it changes and becomes faster and more versatile.

And the town is named Khorinis:)
