Dark Zero reviews Gothic 3 - 7/10

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. It’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 it’s one of the worst games they’ve ever played. However, there’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 it’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 it’s patched enough to fix the most infuriating problems, but in its current state it’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.
