Gothic and Gothic II, Gothic's sequel, offered nice RPG experience, but unfortunately, it had some tehnical issues. You could say the same thing for Gothic 3. Lucky for us, some things in Gothic 3 have changed - to better.
Just like in the previous Gothic games - Gothic 3 put you in the boots of nameless hero, and you can choose between three classes: warrior, archer and wizard. The game starts just when you arrive in Myrtana, a region full of forests, between icy Nordmar and dusty Varant.
