Now I had never played a Gothic game when I decided to download the demo for 360. However even though seeing the frame rate is kind of jacked and there is probably a slew of bugs for the game (especially on the 360) I could not help myself from smiling at everything from the dialogue to the small european game studio vibe I got from the whole game. i can't quite put my finger on it but I can see their intentions are in the right place but the game itself is pretty janky. But for some strange reason I feel myself embracing the jank instead of shutting off the system as I am prone to do with most janky games.
Anyway the fact that they chose to release this game the same week as New Vegas and a week before Fable 3 doesn't seem to bode well for it's sales. And since I plan on getting New Vegas and Fable 3, Arcania will most likely be a game I pick up for cheap when it falls in price.
Now I have heard the game obviously runs much better on a PC but I use a Mac, and to be honest like I said before I find some charm in the 360 version.
Also as someone who has never played a Gothic game before, is Gothic 4 biting from Dragon Age, or did Dragon age bite from Gothic?
