Like most RPGs, Gothic 2 is extremely time-consuming, so be prepared to neglect all other activities (aside from eating and sleeping... and visiting AT on a daily basis). This time around, the entire game, including the original single-player campaign, offers around 70-80 hours of top-notch RPG goodness. Fair enough, you have to master the controls and combat system, but it's all worth it in the end, believe me. I've completed the entire expansion pack and I'm still looking forward to finishing the main storyline and completing all the additional quests. Another good thing is that Gothic 2 Gold costs a mere 19 bucks and it's worth every cent, especially if you're a persistent RPG freak (like myself). In any case, the game is a definite must-have for RPG fans. It is also a perfect way to kill time before Gothic 3 hits the stores.
Unfortunately, the cons of Gothic II Gold outweigh the pros. It’s a definite possibility that something great could be made from the underlying foundation of this game, but with a bountiful amount of problems such as slow game-play and a horrid interface system, it doesn’t quite hit the mark.
