As they discover a growing of the differences between orcs and humans again, they start to accuse each other and finally even a fight between the companions breaks loose. The nameless hero leaves the secret realm and wakes up in Myrtana, where he tries to unite Myrtana once for good - in a new empire for both orcs and human. [JoWood Productions] Expand

  1. It looks like JoWood didn't learn much from releasing a bug-ridden Gothic 3 game. The new add-on is full of bugs, too. But even without them, the game wouldn't be as good as the other recently released RPGs. At least the quest and the story are well done.

    A downright frightening army of bugs both scares away any potential fan of Gothic and eliminates any fun that could have been had with the game. [Issue#17]
  3. Only die-hard fans of the Gothic franchise will be able to overlook the games terrible technical shortcomings. Forsaken Gods hits rock bottom of what was once a great roleplaying series.

    This title is outright disastrous. It was obviously released without thorough or perhaps any testing. The game is rife with design and performance problems and ultimately is unplayable.
  5. Because no matter how much they fix it, Forsaken Gods is a very poor title. I didn’t like it, I don’t recommend it and I am saying that not without regrets, because we’re still talking about a Gothic game.

    Forsaken gods? Rather forsaken legacy and a blatant ripoff. After two years of development we receive a game with a plethora of bugs, jerky graphics and frequent crashes to the desktop, a game that strips this franchise of the pitiful remains of its former glory. [Jan 2009]

    And in the process of keeping it real, I have to comment on Forsaken Gods' combat system, which is -- without a doubt -- the worst I've ever encountered in a game.

    My review is based on the Enhanced Edition from Steam.
    I just finished playing Forsaken Gods and honestly I did not find that many bugs if any noteworthy ones.
    I play games for the Gameplay and the story and I played Gothic 3, so to finally after many years, to buy the standalone expansion was a must. I cannot understand the low score people give this game, but I guess most of it is based on the original edition and not the Enhanced one. If you like me loved the game and the story of Gothic 3 and even the Gothic Saga, then do not cheat yourself out of this experience. Forsaken Gods is the final link between Gothic 3 and Gothic 4.
    Just make sure you get the Enhanced Edition, then you should be flying. vanAndesen

    Very similar play to Gothic 3 (no surprise). Game save/load times are greatly decresed from Gothic 3. However, there are gamebreaking bugsVery similar play to Gothic 3 (no surprise). Game save/load times are greatly decresed from Gothic 3. However, there are gamebreaking bugs (such as certain characters being absent from their designated areas) that can occur even at the beginning, yet won't be know until being hours into the game. For my example I was missing Gorn. The only preventative measure to this issue is to literally run to every city and check if all the required main questline characters are there, and this is time consuming/challenging at best. The game would range around an 8 for overall playability for me, but given that the missing character issue ruined 40+ hours of game time (I like to take my time and do all the available quests in each area. Plus I restarted the game a 2nd time to start over and did it again in a streamlined way before I discovered the character was missing and I just hadn't done something wrong (I try to play w/o guides and hints when I play). The issue was actually bad enough I couldn't complete the game (and kept reappearing despite repeated installs) so the score is halved. Expand

    I thought that there can't be anything worse than Gothic 3 and boy, was I wrong.

    Graphics is for some reason much uglier, everything looks plastic and unnatural. Quests are even more horrible than in G3, dialogues are unimaginably crappy, typical dialogue goes like this:

    -"Hey, I have a quest for you. Find my sword."
    "Fine, I'll do it"
    (after finding sword) "I found your sword."
    - "Thank you."

    Combat is horrible, because it's the same clickfest from G3 but limited by your stamina. If stamina is at 0, the only thing one can do is run. Typical fight: click, click, click, click, click - run in circle like an idiot, waiting for until stamina increases - click, click, click, click - wait until stamina....

    The world is empty and besides main quest there's basically nothing to do. It is completely normal to go through huge forest and not encounter a one single enemy or anything interesting.

    The ONLY GOOD thing about this game is that it wasn't developed by Piranha Bytes, because any developer who develops such a horrible, horrible abomination deserve to play it in hell for eternity.

However, on my Alienware Desktop that I ordered last year (2010), Forsaken Gods crashes non-stop in the first 5 minutes. No matter what I do, it will not run. However, the original Gothic 3 runs okay. Bugs taken into account, I am glad I got this as a bundle for $5 with all existing Gothic Games on steam. Gothic 1 is great. Gothic 4 is definitely fun. Other than that, I would avoid the other Gothic games all together. Piranha thought they were improving on a buggy game, but ended up creating a worse one by changing things and adding more bugs. This game is simply non-playable. Expand

    3で色々やったけど、国内はまだオークとの紛争が続いていて、帰ってきた名無しのオッサン戦士(主人公)
    は、早速オークにボコられて、身包みはがされる。
    目覚めたオッサンは助けられたアノグ(3の仲間?でいいのか?)にまだ国内は争いが満ちていて、新たな陰謀の影がちらついていることを知る。
    おっさん「どげんかせんといかん。協力してーや」
    アノグ「めんどくせぇ。てかお前の無印3(前作)でやったことって結局国をかき乱しただけじゃね?」
    おっさん「はぁ?(怒」
    アノグ「協力してほしかったら住民助けて信頼得て推薦状もらって来い」
    おっさん「おk(またお使いの日々が始まるのか・・・)」

    相変わらず雑魚であるはずの動物系の敵が鬼畜、テレポ石が見つけにくいなど3から変わっていない。
    囲まれてウンゥンゥンウン、アーッ!でゲームオーバーは珍しくない。
    ボリュームも後日談的外伝な扱いなのかいける場所はそう多くない。
    なので技能ポイントの量も限られてくるので生産スキルはほぼ地雷。
    いい所・・・?今回は武器の束集めなくていいところとかじゃないかなぁw
    非公式の日本語MODでプレイ、結構誤訳が多いので注意

    Tiens, une fois n'est pas coutume, j'alais épingler et clouer au pilori, rouer et pour finir (en beauté) empaler le bien connu développeurTiens, une fois n'est pas coutume, j'alais épingler et clouer au pilori, rouer et pour finir (en beauté) empaler le bien connu développeur Piranha Bytes (avant de le jeter à la vindicte populaire afin qu'elle démembre ce qui reste...) pour cette chose nommée "Gothic III Forsaken Gods" qui se prétend "jeu vidéo" de son bien triste état...

    Eh bien, non, pour une fois, ce n'est pas de leur faute, ils n'y sont pour rien... c'est en effet une autre bande de cons qui s'est occupé de ce Gothic et ma foi, ils ont dépassé leur "maître"... j'ai rarement vu un tel étron technique qui rame comme un porc sur une carte graphique de 2015 (R9 380) et pourtant il s'agit d'un "jeu" de 2008 ! pour situer les choses, Dragon Age Origins de 2009 tournait comme un charme avec une "simple" 6870 ! c'est ce qui sépare un développeur triple A d'un branque Z--- (Z triple moins) je suppose !

    Le plus effarant, c'est que ça tourne toujours comme une patate (y compris en... 720p !) après l'application d'un gros patch (pour l'époque) d'1,5 Go, boulotté par un autre studio censé améliorer la "performance" (et corriger les bugs !) de cette bouse, d'où l'appellation "Enhanced Edition". Le patch daterait de 2011 et depuis plus rien, car de toute façon, un étron reste un étron, inutile de le polir et le repolir, ça reste de la merde !

    Mais pire que les saccades permanentes, c'est le jeu entier qui est de toute façon injouable puisqu'il se passe au ralenti avec une latence incroyable dans les commandes comme si on jouait à un jeu Stadia ou PSNow ! il faut le voir pour le croire ou plutôt ne pas le voir, car ça n'en vaut pas la peine...

    De toute manière, le jeu reste un "Gothic", c'est-à-dire une sorte de soit-disant "jeu de rôle" très psycho-rigide dont la difficulté bien tarée et l'injouabilité sont légendaires. On donne deux coups d'épée, on est déjà "fatigué", les combats sont complètement foireux et l'interface, la présentation générale sont sévèrement, dramatiquement, lamentablement à la masse. Quand elles ne sont pas à l'ouest.

    Autre exemple frappant s'il en est et hallucinant avec le simple fait suivant : sortez votre épée au début du jeu dans le village et une meute de villageois se précipitent pour vous botter le cul aussi sec ! le monde ouvert (bien moche de surcroît !) est très générique, fade et perclus de clichés usés jusqu'à la corde. On ne va pas s'appesantir davantage sur cette daube qui figure d'ores et déjà dans le Guinness des pires daubes jamais démoulées ici et là : la poubelle attend...

    Тупизм и патриотизм. Прозвучит странно, но эта поделка по мотивам Готики 3 мне понравилась чуть больше, чем сама Готика 3. Да, тут есть всеТупизм и патриотизм. Прозвучит странно, но эта поделка по мотивам Готики 3 мне понравилась чуть больше, чем сама Готика 3. Да, тут есть все отрицательные качества третьей части: отвратительная боёвка, слабая ролевая система, дебильные ммошные квесты и т.д. Плюс к старым болячкам добавились новые. Главный герой после путешествия в другом измерении сходит с ума и становится дауном-патриотом. Также пелена тупости коснулась большинства персонажей. Во всех диалогах они несут полную пафоса чушь и зачастую противоречат сами себе через предложение. Однако, помимо дебильных, растягивающих игру квестов, есть парочка интересных и смешных заданий. Сам сюжет имел бы место быть в готике, будь на месте "мирного жителя миртаны" не наш любимый безымянный, а какой-нибудь отпрыск Робара II. Тогда бы большое количества глупостей и вызывающих негодование моментов в игре попросту не смогло бы быть. Но имеем что имеет: потенциально нормальный сюжет, загубленный плохими сценаристами и унаследованный плохой игровой процесс. Хоть проходится это безобразие часов за 15 всё равно не тратьте своё время на эту игру, разве что хотите поржать с плохой игры и кретинских диалогов. Expand
