    The phrase "more of the same" strikes one more time. Gamers who liked the main game will find this addon entertaining as well. For RPG enthusiasts, ArcaniA: Fall of Setarrif falls a little short on complexity.

    It's very short but we still had to force ourselves to play on. Dumb non-stop battles, oversized dungeons and a tiring story is basically all there is. Think twice before buying this one.

    Arcania: Fall of Setarrif is unable to bring anything new in the Arcania universe. Same combat, same objects, smaller locations and lesser graphics make this experience a flat promenade toward an (again) unsatisfying final.

    The only difference between this game and the horrendous Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods is that it's almost bug-free.

    Even if you found yourself enjoying Gothic 4, I can't suggest that you pick up the expansion, Fall of Setarrif. It's a poorly constructed add-on to a mediocre game.

    Setarrif ends as soon as it starts, and that defines its final score. You play it for the sole purpose to finish it quickly. If we take its low difficulty and a lack of a great story, then the quick finish is not a problem at all.

    Fall of Setarrif is a fall of Arcania. A new brand that was supposed to blossom on Gothic's carcass has failed miserably. There are no new fans, and the old ones felt betrayed: Spellbound has decided to conduct an open heart surgery without knowing anything about cardiac surgery or what is best for the patient.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Boring dlc to grab your hard earn cash to a game that is pretty awful in itself the expansions full of the same bugs the original game is.

    Nothing new just a walk down a ugly path to a boring boss fight.

    Hard to know which is worse, the dreary story, the humdrum quests, voice acting that would make Joey Tribiani cringe. It is an insult to theHard to know which is worse, the dreary story, the humdrum quests, voice acting that would make Joey Tribiani cringe. It is an insult to the old Gothic games that something this poor should be associated with them. Awful awful, don't buy. Expand
