Dark Zero has posted a review of Gothic 3, giving it 7/10 because the game is "one of the buggiest and most problematic" the reviewer has ever experienced. Other than that the reviewer liked the game a lot:
So... this is a really hard one to judge. Itâ€™s a real marmite bottle of a game, and therefore any score given is completely irrelevant to half the people reading this. All the bugs present, and there are a lot of them, will spoil the game completely for a lot of people, making them think itâ€™s one of the worst games theyâ€™ve ever played. However, thereâ€™re other people who will willingly play through the glitches, and when they do they will experience moments of pure wonder when the game actually shows the brilliance itâ€™s truly capable of producing. The freedom in itself is fantastic, and the charm and little touches present, like roasting meat at a campfire to increase its health-giving loveliness, all add up to create something pretty special. This game could have been so much more, and perhaps still will be if itâ€™s patched enough to fix the most infuriating problems, but in its current state itâ€™s gonna be loved and hated in equal measures. A bit like marzipan really.Can't comment on the bugs as I haven't seen any, but overall the game is a great addition to the series.
