Save the world (again)
If you've ever played the Gothic series of adventures, then this should look very familiar to you. It's extremely similar to this series, also created by the same developers, featuring many of the same themes and gameplay mechanics, but if you are looking for a bit of third person action, you could do worse than take a look here. The plot is all a bit portentous and mysterious, revolving around strange storms, ancient temples and vicious creatures rising up from the depths to bring havoc to the world of men. The player takes on the role of an unnamed hero who arrives on an island in the midst of all this chaos and whose task it is to uncover the mystery surrounding these events and learn his true role in the power struggle that is unfolding. What follows is a free roaming third person adventure, where you explore the island, chatting with the locals, taking on quests and of course, beating up the monsters which roam around. You get to earn the favor of three factions by completing quests, while there are also RPGs elements with skill trees and leveling up. On the whole, this is pretty cool stuff. The combat is fast and fun, while lacking nothing in depth, with parrying and dodging adding to the complexity, while the game world is interesting to explore, although somewhat smaller than Gothic 3. The visuals are slick and detailed, with some great monsters and some imaginative environments to explore so overall, this makes for an entertaining adventure into a dark and mysterious world.
