The first review for Arcania: Gothic 4 is available. And it's not that good...
if it's not that good why on earth would you give it almost 8 out of 10!?
Everything below 8/10 = fail according to some nutjobs.
Foreal man, a 6/10 is enough for me to consider a purchase. People have to learn to lower their expectations and standards.
8/10 is fantastic! I'm glad to see this game (so far) has gottten good scores. I've played Gothic 2 and 3 and both were cool.
EDGE seems to be the only guys with the balls to give an average game a 5/10. Most other reviewers go for 7 and 8 when games are average.
Hmmm... May want to purchase this now since I think Two Worlds II does not look as good as everyone is making it out to look, and The Witcher 2 may or may not come to consoles.
From the demo I played on the PC I would have given it an 80-85/100. Sounds like a legit review to me. After playing the X360 demo however... I would have given it much less due to lower quality visuals and clunky controls.
This game obviously plays better on the PC but seriously takes a back seat to The Witcher 2 and Two Worlds 2. someone mentioned a game lower than a 8/10 is FAIL, I agree. For $40 PC or $60 console games need to be 8, 9, or 10's before I spend my hard earn cash.
link is broken for me :(
to translate the website
a 7.9 is what i expected. definitely going to purchase. i need more action rpgs.
How is it not that good", yet gets an 8? I can't read the review cause no one decided the translate it, but the description is misleading as crap. Did anyone report that description while this was awaiting approval?
Since when was 8 out of 10 not good...
and reviewers couldn't keep themselves from slapping 8/10 and less scores to PS3 exclusives because they "didn't justify the high price of the console," and the fanboys ran with it. an 8/10 score is a GREAT score. but for me, the only score that matters is the one i give the game when i sit down and play it. this generation of consoles has been enough to convince me that reviews are pointless. either the review is nitpicking the game to low scores, or the majority of the text is comparing to >insert mega-popular game of the time here<. they're worthless.
I actually have some starnge love for the score 7.9. There's nothing wrong with that score,look how many people play mag.
Gothic 2 was the best, but if you want a new Gothic, I suggest getting Risen instead of Gothic 4. It was good, too.
It is funny you say that. I have a friend that was very upset that Arcania was not like Gothic 2 (the best in the series) and told me to go play Risen before I purchase Arcania.
Risen is made by the Gothic dev team, unlike Arcania.
Risen is an excellent game, PC version anyway.
i tried the demo and this game is a 3/10 for me
Dude, go back to Halo or Modern Warfare 2
Good score for the PC version. Doesn't look good for the console version though. 6/10 at best, is my guess.
