"We often characterise the mobile gaming market as being somewhat casual - ready for a couple of minutes fun but little else. To that extent, Gothic 3: The Beginning is the antithesis of the likes of Bobby Carrot, Granny in Paradise and Brain Coach."
"In fact, as mobile games go it's actually impressively large - over 50 levels - and reasonably graphically pretty, but, be warned, it is an role-playing game, and one that has the distinct flavour of a classic text adventure. Based on the universe of the Gothic PC titles, it casts you back to a world of orcs and warriors, and rooms littered with barrels and chests containing gold and swords."
