Well don't get me wrong i own a ps3 (and rrod'ed x360) but this game looks kinda retarded. Like authors didn't had idea what game to make.
Monks, monsters, skeletons, ... Damn it i just don't get it.

Tried Gothic 2 but the controls were so awkward and it started bugging out within like 5 minutes after i started playing, so i decided it was a crappy game :P

first this is not gothic 4 only the same developers. but this game will be good they have learned a lot of their mistakes and promised a great game. its a really deep game and the world is build by hand stone by stone and tree by tree. so you will se some great nature with realistic look and feel. and gfx are better than oblivion just look at pic 2, oblivion never looked that good on xbox360.

it does look pretty good, but I can't shake those horrible 4-legged creature animations from the last video I saw.
It was a big facepalm.

Whatever though, it'll probably be at least a decent game.

It looks really good. I like the design of the creatures and stuff. And also it looks very little like Oblivion to be honest...

Graphics- as GRAPHICS look really good. The game- looks insanely void of character. You show me Fable- I SEE the character- I SEE what the game feels like and it's theme. Same with Fallout. Same with Mass Effect. Hell, even Zelda. This- this looks like that shit game Two Worlds with better graphics. The only NEW game of this ilk I'm interested in... is on 'hold' because of funds. Show me The Witcher, I'll be more open. This looks forgettable before it's even out.

I couldn't disagree more. I find it looks quite a bit like Oblivion, especially with respect to the not-so-great-looking human models.

Absolutely. The Art direction is as boring an Cliche as is possible. Gotta love that rough-hewn stone. These guys need to expand their references beyond the European dark ages...

This is a love/hate thing for me. I do like the graphics, but at the same time I would like it to be bit less cartoonish. This looks a bit like Fable 2 in my opinion.

I'm not sure how you can say that.. The Elder Scrolls has a very bland art direction, and Oblivion itself was quite ugly, and all the environments were pretty barren. It was all the same.

This looks a lot more interesting, with the streams and valleys, etc.
Hopefully the gameplay holds up.

The character generator sure didn't produce very interesting characters, but to call oblivion ugly is just...wrong. It did incredibly well depicting lush forest landscapes. That was it's biggest flaw too, all you ever saw were the same damn caves and forests ad infinitum.

the landscapes in Oblivion were 100% forgettable

yes, it looked superb on screenshots but once I played the game myself I realized it looks the same everywhere which is why they probably integrated that "click on the map to go there and spare you the chore of actually walking there", for they too realized, that walking this endless computer generated everywhere-is-the-same landscape was nothing but a "chore"

exploration is the major motive for me to play these games, so oblivion just bored me to death


that's what I loved about Gothic1+2 (never played 3) - handcrafted landscapes with personality and landmarks and no further use for maps, because you could orientated yourself at the landmarks and just from your memories, like "Oh I know this, I've been here before. If I turn there I'll end up there and there."

the devs already promised, that Risen was 100% handcrated aswell, which is why I'm looking forward to this game

Morrowind had great environments to explore but i still miss the quick travel because some times you just want to get where you are going and not have to spend half an hour walking, changing bugs and teleporting with mages. Though i clearly agree that there was a lot of forest and slightly less of everything else, the forests still look great.

Looks a little like TES4 Oblivion but this has better lighting and improved graphics by the looks.

Ah Oblivion... where men look like men, and women look like men too.
