I didn't experience any evil bug or even the (now fixed) save game bug and none of the bugs shown in the video, other than the vultures and lost monsters in the caves. The game even ran surprisingly smooth on my rather old PC (3GHz, 1.5GB, 9800Pro) I have played Oblivion too and to me Gothic3 is the better game by a *great* margin. Simply from gameplay perspective. Oblivion doesn't have the intense immersion of the Gothic series, but feels rather generic and Lego(R)-like. The scaling of the monsters, items, everything to your level is an unbelievably bad design decision IMHO, I can't imagine what made them did this. Also freedom of choice is less in Oblivion. Granted, you can choose your char down to the cheekbone, but it doesn't matter inside the game. Almost nothing matters in Oblivion. After having played around the guild quests and other quests I quickly solved the main quest, to just having it done with, and left the game alone. I wholeheartedly agree to this review: http://www.rpgdot.com/index.php?hsaction=10053&ID=1217 All in all I found Gothic3, while still better than Oblivion, the weakest of the Gothic series. The world is big but less story is distributed over a larger map. The quests are now mostly simple errands and the funny situations are much scarcer now. Like said before here: It feels like a lost chance. A little more work on all the edges and it could have become a master-piece. Really a pity... But still: even with this large a terrain, the map itself is as great as ever. They again made clever use of their seamless arbitrary-geometry level engine. ( DeusXL, cursed? Beat this. :P )[/quote]
