Diehard GameFAN: "Several years ago, I bought a PC RPG for my wife to go along with her obsession with the Elder Scrolls titles. It was a buggy mess on any laptop we tried it on, but on an actual desktop it ran reasonably well, was open-ended, and played relatively well. The story was a bit generic, but my wife and I both ended up enjoying it once we stopped trying to run it on her laptop. That was Gothic 3. This year, another title in the series has been released that promised to get passed the game issues and deliver another thrilling title in the Gothic RPG series, but that promise may have been squandered.
