Gothic 3 Community Patch

Mad Vulture Games now offers a new Community Patch for Gothic 3, eradicating more of the bugs that plague Piranha Bytes' RPG sequel. The version 1.75 CP patch offers bug fixes and balance tweaks, widescreen UI support, and enhanced modification capabilities. You can find all the details in this change log.

But every Gothic game, since the first, had rather clunky combat.

The problem here isn't the clunky combat. It's the fact that monster combat has devolved into spamming LMB and hoping you don't get stunlocked first. It's the exact same issue that Gothic 3 had. I'm fine with clunky combat as long as there's skill and thought involved (like in G1, 2 and Risen) but that's not the case in Risen 2. NPC combat fares better, as you can actually defend yourself and timing and positioning are still important.

As for critics, PB's games have never been very well-received in the west. Gothic 2 (what most PB fans consider to be their best game) has an average Metacritic score of 79. Gothic has an 81. Risen has a 77. With Risen 2 being the most hyped and marketed of all these games, that means there are only more reviewers to bash it.
