Two Worlds II
Its good in ways
Ok 1st off I like how everyone says its a knock off of oblivion(its not). If anything its a Morrowind knock off (and yes i know its made by the same ppl). Oblivion dumbed things down in the creative crafting of items and spells this game does not. Sure the voice acting is Poor and the sound is ok but if you get off your high horse about how this is junk compared to Oblivion you will like this game. People dont give this game a fair chance cause they think everything should be perfect in a game. Combat in this game is diffferent but still fun. It doesn't rip off warcrafts combat system nor Oblivions. There is a mages guild assassins guild and etc. side quests WAY WAY MORE open world things ( like wild life and such). I am having more fun with this game than i did with Oblivion by far. IF you play games for Voice acting and in depth plot i wouldn't get this game if i were you,. If you play games to play and be creative pick this one up you may enjoy it, I know i am.
dont listen to the trolls
first, if u traded a game like two worlds in for little big planet than this game wasnt for you in the first place. is it a perfect game? no, i wouldnt say that, but in its core it is a great game. its was made by a small budget company and ppl need to keep that in mind. minor lag and glitches... yes. but even with major titles nowadays its standard. (i.e. fallout: new vegas). the world of two worlds looks amazing. those compaining about graphics probably are not using a 1080 hd tv. the voice acting isnt up to par, but hey, its not a movie and it doesnt take away from the game play. story is short, but just going through the story ur not enjoying the full potentcial of the game. plenty of sidequest to keep u entertained as well as single player and multiplayer modes to bash and zap enemies with friends. the spell and armor/weapon crafting system will keep u farming to max out ur characters potential. if u liked rpgs like elder scrolls then u will love this game, its just a bit more hack and slash. dont listen to the trolls. armor up and experience this gaming world for yourself.
Being a fan of open world RPGs like Oblivion, Fallout, Baldur's gate, i knew what to expect when i bought Two Worlds 2. The previews had me worrying, though, with reports of bugs and bad voiceovers. That, plus the bad reputation of the first game, had me expecting a lot less from it than what i have experienced so far. I have not found any bugs to date, save for the usual *force an enemy into a corner and keep hacking away and you might not be able to target his loot 'cause its inside the wall* that i've experienced everywhere. The voiceovers weren't bad, and most complaints have been that the animation in cutscenes don't align with the voices. Luckily, i prefer to have subtitles on so i can read the text faster anyways, so i didnt really mind it that much. The levelling and skill system is pretty well balanced, and the magic system offers a lot of possibilities. Overall, compared to what i was expecting to what my experience of this game is, i am quite happy with my purchase.
Not nearly as bad as expected
The game, while not close to perfect, is far better than people are claiming. This game in no way deserves a 1 from somebody. The animation is wonky, as is the camera sometimes. The story is meh. The graphics are decent at best. But what lies underneath all that is a pretty fun RPG. If you like casting spells, this game is for you, if not, I dunno. The magic system is hands down the most inventive and rewarding experience in an RPG I've seen. You combine different spells and different tiers of spells to create all new spells. It is very fun and rewarding.
Is this game amazing? No. Did it have Skyrim like money backing it? Also, no. Take a game for what it is. This game was a darn good attempt at breaking some typical RPG mechanics and I think they did a fine job.
If you're like me and ran out of RPGs to play and started sifting through the "bad" ones, just try 'em yourself. I'd be missing out if I didn't play this game or Alpha Protocol.
Not For Me
I got this game based on reviews I've read online. Just about all of them were positive. I got the game cheap and when I played it, I just couldn't get into it. The story lacks well.....story. It points you in one direction and hopes you can get there. Voice acting was bad. The hero lacked any emotions whatsoever and eveybody else just didn't seem into it. Gameplay wise the mechanics are pretty solid. You have a button assignment system to designate what each button does. The problem here is combat. Fighting just looks bad. Graphics are a combination of nice and bad. Cinematics are beautiful, but gamplay graphics lack a lot and can freeze up at times. Customization of weapons and armor was by far the best feature of the game, but it just wasn't enough to keep me going.
This is a game for people who mainly like games like World Of Warcraft and Elder Scrolls. So if you don't like games like those, keep away from this.
Hit or Miss, it kinda hit???
So I guess I'm the first one to review this for the PS3 since it got released. I gotta say this game was a gamble like I'm sure all of you out there are aware because of the first one. Let me start by saying that this is not going to be a polished game but after a couple of hours into it, you'll find yourself addicted somehow. Yea, there will be times you want to throw your controller at the screen because of the lags from time to time, but you'll also find yourself staying up till the sun comes up the next day playing this and still not even scratching the surface. Graphics are amazing! So surprised on that one as I had the 2nd lowest expectations on that next to gameplay. To wrap it up, get this game if you like Oblivion type of games, or if you're a casual gamer that wants to get caught up in a massive open world RPG to escape the troubles of life for a few hours. Hope this helps! I was waiting all day for someone to post before I bought it but nobody did :( It's ok, it's a gamble I took that I am happy with.
Ok Reality Check
Ive been reading a lot of reviews about this game, and ive been seeing a ton of people using bad reviews to judge if they should get this game or not. First i will start with the fact that most the people that gave this game a very poor review did not actually play the game. You need to dive into a game, explore it, and play it all the way through before writing a review that could possibly keep someone from experiencing a game. NOW saying that, i have put hundreds of hours in this game and i have to say....Its not bad, not at all. This game is NOT for just any gamer, and here's why -------- First off you have bugs, none game breaking, but a fair amount of bugs none the less. And it takes a fan of the RPG gaming world to truly love this game for what it is, and that is a creative twist on the RPG world. Some of these bugs involve shoddy cut scenes, some pop in enemies and twitchy movement. Now i know this sounds bad but the game makes up for it. I have high standards and at first glance this game is a BUST...BUT its creative magic system with hundreds of custom spells, unique weapon crafting system and VAST open world to explore compensate for its many downfalls. Hes my personal breakdown of PROS and CONS so that you can make your own decision on weather or not to get this game. PRO--------- Ok heres a list of Pro's the game presents every player. VAST OPEN WORLD --- we are talking massive and you can make your way anywere. MAGIC ------ The magic system is so creative, and so amazing in general it can pull in gamers who hate magic, yes this is a bold statement but its true. The spells can do anything you can think of, meteor storm, lightning storms, summoning, twisters that pick up everything, spells to give you super jump, you name it and its there. CRAFTING -----This game lets you break down any weapon to its core materials so that you can enhance other weapons using iron, steel, wood, ect. Its fun, creative, and shows there was alot of care about what people were asking for at the time. GAMEPLAY ----- ok there are parts of the gameplay that will be in the Cons section but there are still some great parts. The skills you can upgrade are fun, and vast, the actual fighting can be clunky but once you grow accustom to how the game works it becomes fun and fast. and the story, as lame as it is can be entertaining at points and even funny (even though they didnt mean it to be). CON'S -------- Ok now here's the things you need to know that suck LAG-----When you get more then 8 - 10 enemies or summonings on the screen in a mass fight, lag will happen sometimes. It sucks but the fact you can summon like 8 guys is cool. CHARACTERS ----- voice acting can be just a joke sometimes and other times its the coolest thing. Your guy is either a dork or cool as heck when he talks. other characters usually suck so be prepared. Its not game breaking but it can be annoying. People can also seem stiff and robotic sometimes, giving it a dated feeling (dont worry you get use to it to a point were you dont even notice it) STORY/QUESTS--------- these SUCK, they can be lame, dull, pointless, repetitive and yet they are so darn ADDICTING! i mean theres really only 20% of the missions that are truly creative and awesome yet all of them are just addicting after a while. Still dull as anything though. Ok so i think i have covered everything i need to so that you (the reader) can make an informed choice. If your looking for a reviewer on youtube or something that is FAIR in his/her coverage of the game then check out Angry Joe's review of this game on facebook, he dosnt hold back in telling you whats wrong but is fair at the same time.

The first had an incredible multiplayer enough said. But to elaborate for those who haven't played the first, continue reading. The story was pretty bad to be honest mainly for the fact that it's just like every other old time knight game. Why this game was incredible though was that it was an MRPG (multiplayer role playing game), which basically means that you can level your character as you would in the story, but you would be playing online with other people. With that said, you had the ability to stock up on weapons and spells, you could trade with people, and most importantly you could make potions and trade them. I personally loved this game because you could make certain kinds of potions that would greatly enhance your stats, and would make you incredibly strong. The most powerful is called a unicorn potion, which increased you stats tremendously. Another online mode was to fight other online players, which was also cool, but not as fun as the RPG part of it in my opinion. What I am trying to say, is that they can only improve on the multiplayer. Because of this the story will be far better, although the multiplayer will still be where it is at. This game is much more anticipated than the last one, so I believe many more people will play it. So, you will have tons of people playing online destroying monsters, trading, and doing everything fun in the game. Definitely a good buy because it is one of those games that just don't get old...
Waste of time and money
I have never played a game that has so many gliches in it. Walking through locked doors and walls. Also walking through a mountain. On top of that when your character is talking to a NPC, and it has something to do with the story line, he gets cut off in middle of the sentence. And while playing the game all of my quest just stopped. I was in the middle of find evidence for a high ranking gaurd, did everything I was suppose to do, and even started working for the man the gaurd wanted me to investigate and it cut my quest off. I have been all over the area trying to find anything and nothing worked. Another issue was witha a quest were I killed a guy for the Orc archer cause he was killing his friends off and it wouldn't let me complete it for some unknown reason. I didn't play the first Two Worlds, but from what I understand it was really bad. Well, this one is right next to it. I have never had this many issues with a game in my life. This is a game that I would totaly tell my friends not to waste thier money on.
Great Game! I have it
This is a great open world RPG. Single player is great and it has tons of quest to do, ton of weapons an loot. There is an easy and addictive crafting system to upgrade your gear constantly. The continents are pretty big for single player and the continent for multiplayer is big too. Having single player and mulitplayer as alot of variety to the game and genre, There is deathmatches and co-op to choose from. Your Single player and multiplayer characters are different, and there is more customization on the multiplayer character creator. This is definately a great game and worth the money. Tons of gameplay time. If there was something keeping it from being a classic it would be the combat, it's tolerable is all I will say. Also after playing games like Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age, Fallout, & Oblivion it's weird hardly ever haing a choice in what you say. And more back story for the main character would have been nice so you could care about the character. Enjoy this fantastic RPG. Just be ready for Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3 which will be 2 of the greatest games ever made.
