Does it fix the horribly shitty combat?

First and only character I made was melee and, yeah, the combat mechanic was terrible. I would have tried magic or melee, but was worried they may have been way too frustrating. IIRC, magic only had one time use spells. I'm assuming a magic user would be more like a battlemage.

I had a problem with stuttering which seemed to happen when textures loaded or objects popped into the world. It has been a while since I played last, but I did some research at the time and I had concluded that this was an intrinsic flaw of the engine. Had this been everyone's experience? Seemed as if my video settings were too high, but I'm quite sure I had experimented with them, possibly even turning everything down to absolute minimum, to no avail.

I appreciated the game's exploration aspect, though.

If you're talking about Gothic 3, it actually ran just fine on my system back then. I just got tired of the bullshit combat, and the absolutely horrible bugs that were in the game. I had to go to the castle to talk to the king (I guess), and the fucker wasn't there. Turned out the game had spawned him 16 miles into the air, where he was just hanging aimlessly.

Testing? Nah, not for JoWood! Just rush it out the fucking door!

Glad those fuckers have gone bust. Now EA needs to follow suit.
