Gothic 2 Gold review at Plain Games - 3.5/5

Plain Games has posted a review of Gothic 2 Gold, giving it 3.5/5.

I didn’t think sexuality would be much of a problem in this game, and honestly, it doesn’t have to be. However, wandering through the harbor, I came across the town brothel. For 50 gold pieces, the hero can hire the services of one of the women. The hero can just ask her for information about the major side plots and then leave; however, the player is given the option to “Have fun.” Choosing this option leads to a graphic and prolonged sex scene, which would possibly get an R rating or higher in a modern day movie.

As for the game’s message, there is some drug and alcohol use, both by the hero and the NPC’s. Drinking alcohol has positive effects with no downsides, as does smoking water pipes. There are opportunities to gamble, including betting on a drinking game and interfering with the outcome by swapping water for gin. Stealing is difficult to accomplish, but when it is successful it’s always beneficial. There is little racial or gender discrimination present in the game. Class discrimination exists, but is presented in a very negative light. This game’s content is mild compared to most adventure games aimed at adults, but it has enough inappropriate moments and themes that parents should be concerned about letting young teenagers play.
The moral of the story is there are a lot of crazy people out there and the freedom of the internet aint helping.
