Crossing Over: Gothic
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted the latest article in Justin Ancheta's continuing series of guides. The articles offer detailed instructions for running Windows versions of game titles which either never made it to Macs, or have Mac versions incompatible with recent OS releases. This time Justin turned his attention to Piranha Bytes' Gothic.

Here's an excerpt:

This isn't an RPG where you can blindly rush into a battle, click 100,000,000 times on your mouse and expect to win. Patience, timing, and tactics are the key to winning; if let your guard down even at the beginning, or rush blindly into combat, you can easily expect to get your behind handed to you by even the lowliest of enemies. Being smart about combat is the key to surviving and winning encounters: that means drawing enemies away from large groups so you can engage them one-on-one, rushing them from behind to get that critical first strike, or timing your sidesteps to evade their attacks. When the NPCs strongly caution you about fighting early on, they're not joking, and when you start to engage enemies it becomes very clear that their advice isnít just window dressing for casual players. Even for more experienced players, the combat can prove to be frustrating, as you find your attacks failing to hit, as your enemy deftly jumps out of your way to flank you with a vicious counter attack. After encounters where even a juvenile oversized chicken can kill you, you'd be forgiven if you were sent more than once into a fit of keyboard-pounding frustration.
