Game Chronicles digs Gothic II

Game Chronicles have posted a review of the popular German CRPG Gothic II. They liked it a lot and it scored 8.5 out of 10 with an Editor's Choice award dealie.

Picking up a few days where Gothic ends, the main character, a man with no name, goes through a resurrection of sorts and is told of a great evil that threatens the land and he is naturally the only can fend it off. I never played the first Gothic but had no trouble slipping into the plot as the intro movie and some dialogue scattered throughout the game did an excellent job of keeping me up to speed. The basic plot is that an army of orcs lead by dragons has appeared in an old penal colony and plan to attack a nearby city soon. This plays into a larger war occurring on a global scale expect that some larger evil seems to be present in this looming battle.

Funny thing about evil, battle and other nasty things. They always loom. The good guys never loom. They just walk right into enemy ambushes.
