"Being listed in all major 'most wanted' charts across Europe, Gothic III is the top title of the coming year. To publish a game with such popularity, potential and quality, is a great chance for us to push a world-wide known brand even further" ,comments Andreas Tobler, CEO of JoWooD Productions Software AG. JoWooD Productions takes this chance and will try to break RPG selling records of the past!

I've been waiting for this one. They always hinted it was to be a trilogy. One of my favorite series.

I found the controls to be great. The problem wasn't that they were bad, or that they were unintuitive. They were just different. If you are used to WASD shooter/action game controls, then you'll find that they follow a completely different concept. The bad part is that you have to get over expecting them to work like shooter controls. Once you do that, they are absolutely fantastic, intuitive, and very, very quick to use.
