Gothic 4 demo on Xbox Live

Postby Mark240473 » 24 Sep 2010, 15:32

Cool. I'll give that a try later. I remember playing Gothic 2 on the PC years ago and really enjoying it. It was full of bugs, mind. Hopefully, this one will be a bit more polished.

Just tried this having never heard of it before and have to say found it quite stilted and boring. A shame as when I loaded it I was quite intrigued.also the enslaved demo is up now, that I did enjoy when I played it on ps3 the other day.

i dont understand the level thing does it actually do anything?
and Enslaved gave me a very Uncharted-y vibe not normally one for brawlers didn't like Heavenly Sword or things like GOW but am very intrigued to see if Enslaved can keep my interest. It's out nxt week yeah?

This Gothic 4 demo, I thought would be cool after seeing trailers etc, the demo is very disappointing, its like a RISEN et al, not worth a £53 special edition purchasse which I preorded, its now cancelled, save some cash, the framerate is jerky a hell, the graphics are disapointing, the whole feel to it is unpolished like RISEN...I got Enslaved and Castlevania and Fable 3 in that month, this can go....its a shame I thought it would be good..

I thought the demo was pretty good, on pc that is. The framerate was fantastic, graphics were great and there were no bugs that I could spot in my playthrough. So clearly the focus has been on the PC for this title, for a change, which isn't bad.

Only real complaints I've heard are that the demo was too closed off, which not a lot can be done about as it clearly is the tutorial island and probably the best way to demo a free roam rpg. And second that the leveling is too streamlined, e.g. Mass Effect 2. However its what floats your boat at the end of the day.

Tbh I didn't find the game much like risen at all, man THAT was a mess, not so with this. I've pre-ordered anyway, 19.95 on pc - can't really complain.

I just played the PC demo and have to say I enjoyed it alot. I dont have a top end PC really, but it played beautifully at 1680x1050 on high. Are the older games in a similar style to this?

Gothic 4 is right up there.... with APB as one of the worse demos I've ever played.
