Two Worlds II
Great if willing to forgive rough edges
Overall the game is good. A huge improvement was made from the first game. Online gameplay is extremly fun. The campaign is interesting as well. If you like RPGs and have 20 bucks I recomend this game!
Not the game expected. It could have been better. The game play is bad. Do not recommend getting this.
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.

A Great Game!
An Amazing game if you love RPG, and dungeons, and queasts. I'm a lvl 45 Necromancer and, I like all the powers and skills, you have to choose from when leveling up. You should get it.
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 my type of rpg for the multiplayer but still fun, play demon's souls or dark souls or diablo III. its alot more fun and exciting. two worlds II had bad role models, bad storyline, weak controls, bad character creation, bad voice acting.
What i see in the Two Worlds series is that the games are improving, Two Worlds 1 was horrible, and Two Worlds 2 improved big time compared to the first one, Two Worlds 3 ( if its coming out) will probably be something worth getting. Two Worlds 2 has a cool soundtrack and the magic system and create a spell system is fun. The games story is average and worth skipping, but if you want a game that is a good loot fest, and a free roaming world worth exploring and skills to master, Two Worlds 2 is for you
Worst game in every way...
I normally don't put much stock in IGN reviews and for once I wish I had. Two Worlds 2 is horrible in every way imaginable.
Overall polish: I found myself wondering if they beta tested this game at all. The opening cut scene had bugs in it (the villain's cape flipped over and covered his head) and scenes where the main character is speaking to people, their arms move like robots which reminded me of "second life" animation. Clipping issues are annoyingly abundant. All of which still exist at this point even after downloading all 3 updates for the game. I shutter to think what the game was like before the updates...
Controls: Clunky and at times I found myself fighting the controls more than the mobs. Selecting objects is inaccurate and frustrating. The camera often moved itself while I was sneaking making it difficult for me to find my target.
Graphics: For a game that came out recently the graphics were surprisingly dated. Characters were stiff and reminded me of PS2 graphics(which were acceptable back then).
Sound: The character's mouths rarely matched the voice over work. The different actor's voices were at completely different volumes. The main character speaks in a quiet monotone and the priestess lady's voice booms in comparison.
I couldn't stand playing the game for long. The bugs and the annoying game play quickly pushed me over the edge. Normally I am able to look past such things and focus on a good story but even that isn't all that interesting in this game. I can't imagine what the publisher expected to accomplish by producing such a poor product.
Worst rpg i played on ps3.
reasons y this game sux: bad character creation, bad horse riding, bad combat, the avatar talks too much!, no females how sexist..., story is kinda boring, i was gonna buy demon's souls but my mom is an idiot, she doesnt let me play anything gothic like: diablo silent hill and other dark gothic games, im 16 and i can handle tht stuff, i guess i could buy demon's souls 1nce im old enough to buy an m rated game, wen im 17.
Don't waste your money
Terrible game. Spend the $ on any of the Elder Scrolls games instead. This is a cheap knock off of those games.
