Gothic II is a single-player role-playing sequel in which you play as a lone hero who must do battle with bandits, orcs, and dragons in a sprawling 3D world. Like in the first game, you control a soft-spoken hero from a behind-the-back perspective and follow one of three career paths in pursuit of his ultimate goal--which, in this case, is to stave off an assault by orcs and dragons unleashed by the death of a demon, the same one that he defeated at the end of the first game. While Gothic II has various improvements, it retains the clunky 3D control scheme for movement and combat used in the first game, and it's just as unforgiving, if not more so. However, if you're up for a challenge, have a fairly good computer, and don't mind the control scheme, you'll find that Gothic II has plenty to offer.

Gothic II's story and setting draw upon traditional medieval high-fantasy elements--very traditional ones. Your character can equip himself with swords, axes, and crossbows, as well as cast fireball spells and healing magic, though like in the original Gothic, he starts out as a helpless weakling and remains so for quite some time. Yet you have to engage in battle in nearly all of the quests you undertake, and like the first game, Gothic II doesn't give you much of an idea of the relative strength of your enemies. This basically means that you'll die horribly, and quite often, until you learn through trial and error which challenges you can reasonably take on, and which you can't.

The combat is about as clunky as that of the first game. The control scheme requires you to press and hold an action key, then move in a direction to swing your weapon or cast a spell, while you can turn and look around you either with the mouse or keyboard. The clunky setup isn't conducive to dodging effectively while fighting, so unless you completely outclass your enemies, you'll often find the only way to effectively do battle with them (and stand a chance) is to get them stuck on an object in the environment, since Gothic II's pathfinding is sometimes problematic. You might have been able to do battle with your enemies a bit better if you could quickly swap weapons or use healing spells or potions with hotkeys, but you can't do either. Instead, you must use Gothic II's clumsy inventory system, which opens up all items in an unchangeable list that you can't reorganize or create shortcuts to, so you must navigate it manually. Accessing your inventory causes you to sheathe your weapon or cease casting spells and brings you to a dead stop, making you a sitting duck.

Furthermore, like in the first game, Gothic II's characters are also quite verbose. The sequel features a great deal of speech that isn't always delivered perfectly (the hero's speech, in particular, sometimes puts inflections on all the wrong words, as though the actor were reading the lines out of context), but it's all generally quite good, even if some of it still occasionally seems out of place. You may find it a bit unusual to explore a medieval village and talk to what appear to be normal-looking medieval peasants, only to hear them speak in a twangy Texan accent, or like a jive-talking pimp near the village brothel. But this unusual delivery will be par for the course if you've played the original Gothic, and even if you haven't, you may still find at least some of it to be enjoyably goofy. Gothic II's other sound effects are minimalistic, as is the game's symphonic soundtrack, which is certainly appropriate, even if it isn't memorable.
