Fri, 30th Mar '01, 9:29pm
Hi there ,
Wow guys iam deep impressed since i have played the german RPG Gothic.
Damn!!! Thats the best RoleplayingGame
since Ultima Underworld and Ultima7!!
I know that most guys out of Germany haven't
heard someting about this Pearl , but i tell
u have a look at it!!!
It is like R.Garriot spoke about Ultima9 ;)
It has all that what Garriot promised , but what we never saw in U9.

Enlighten me with more details, like, is there a non-german (right you quessed it, English) version and what exactly is so great? All I get out of this, is that it is like a RPG and something like ultima....
Always hated german in school, so I don't want to get bothered by it anymore. And I'm always interested in great RPG's, and more with me (I think and hope), so don't let the silence on this topic scare you out of more news sharing ;)

Is it a swords & sorcery fantasy RPG, or modern dark-fantasy, like the CHILL P&P game?

Hi guys ,
Here are some Infos for you.
What do u think what are the three most important aspects inside a OfflineRPG!
Here my granting opinion ;)
2.Charactersystem , Interaction , and virtual environment !
3.Quality of Graphics
Gothic achieves maximum valuation in these three Points.
1.Story is really deep,imaginatively and convincingly !
Surprises , Betrayal, a large War and all what RPG Players like!!
There are also Intelligent dialogs and,and and............
Ok here is all what u want about the Story
Skillsystem always is comprehensibly .
If you improve your Characters skills , it is visible at the character.
New and better moves and stuff like this.
Interaction and virtual environment is simple
Everything is in motion , animals have an independent existence, Sleep , eat,fight
and and and...
Most NPC's has a routine of the day ,
doing a job, conversation among themselves,
cooking,sleeping and and and....
3.Wonderfull landscape , have a look to screenshots
Hope i could make u curiously ;) , cause is
a very very impressive RPG!!
Hope u did understand my english ,
unfortunately in Germany we rarely speak english :)

Hi Mr.Igor ,
You can buy the german version in almost each Computergames business ! The English version of Gothic is nearly done.

Yep, Gothic is highly addictive!
Made me pause all other gaming activity.
But beware, you need a really highgrade system (including player ;) ) for it to run.
For those intending to buy, it's more like Lara Croft with spell casting than Baldurs Gate. Most quests you do alone, you only get help for a couple of extreme fights.

I got the demo and I must say that I was impressed but not exactly hooked, if you get what I mean. Anyway, I may give it another look when the English version comes out.
Btw, does the 'Zappa' part in your name has to do anything with Frank Zappa? Wild guess and probably 99% mistaken but I had to ask.

Please correct my if I'm wrong, but is this game out in English yet? It sounds like it's only in German. Does anyone know when the game will be out in English, if it's not yet. Thanks.

No the english version is not out yet:
for current news.

As for ZappasGost's comments:
I argree on the great graphics and story.
I like it, that you can end fights without killing persons (mostly at least).
Monster-ai is fantastic compared to BGII (most enemies will attack in groups; skelettons dance around you and attack from all sides; wolfes will put one animal on display with the others attacking from hiding; orcs will chase you through half the colonie before giving up, and the mercenairies show no mercy with their x-bows when you dare attack one of them).
But there is too little flexibility on what you learn. You have only few categories (1-handed weappons, 2-handed weapons, bows, x-bows and magic). 2-handers and x-bows are not available until very late in the game.
So there is not too much initiative to play a second time (very different from BG).

Uhm, today I have installed Gothinc, germanversion. Graphics are nice, game idea ... as far as I've seen is nice. However, I've not been able to play it since I lack a mouse and the friggin game doesn't support my splendid logitech trackball :mad:

This game is the DUMBEST waste of time I have ever spent. I bought in the hope that it was a good Morrowind copy (which it was, just without the "good").
Here are my scores in a mock-review:
Two stars -
One star is for graphics, the other star is for effort.
The other three stars are for general gameplay, voice acting, and Time Spent While There Is Morrowind.
And another thing - here's my $50, where's my manual? I expected something with more than ten pages, thank you very much, and frankly, everything else wasn't good enough either. What Gothic has in plot-depth it lacks in every other aspect of the game besides graphics. This game sucks. It will take you ten minutes to master the whole control-shift-click-move-forward-click-control-shift gig to open a chest before you can even begin to LOOK at the graphics. Don't waste your time unless you have something personal against Bethesda softworks and want to disgrace a good RPG.

How can Gothic be a Morrowind copy when the first was about half a year earlier on the market than the latter??! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH!!!! That's it: ESPIONAGE! :D:D:D
