I loved the original and will get this for sure. It was a much better game than the latest Gothic.

First one was a real gem. Little rough round the edges, but great fun. Wonder if this one will be banned here also? Lets ban a game because they smoke a plant that some guy in a fantasy game nick named weed. Oh noes a hooker promises sex as a reward for a quest. Australian adults need to be protected from such themes, but it's k to show Underbelly which has all the above and more on free to air TV. FFS.

With all the swashbuckling in the screenshots and Dark Waters as part of the title, it has me thinking...

Nice. First one is great, still need to finish it, don't want the ride to end. Now it doesn't have to.
