Two Worlds II
I tought they fixed the glitches
For one, I was hoping they would fix the horse glitch...nope. Then there was the constant blur effect, then the falling dead enemies when I teleported. Then the number of side missions are overwhelming at times. At one point I actually forgot what my original mission was. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE
First off the game is not perfect. No game is. However where it matters most, the gameplay and FUN, is where this game shines and shines brightly. I haven't had this much fun with an RPG in a while. Not saying it's to the level of Dragon Age but thats a totally different discussion. The magic system alone is worth the purchase. lol Please check oline for some real reviews for the PC and consoles. The game is addictively fun and isn't that why we play? I've seen some of the negative comments and frankly yes the game has a couple small issues but it in no way distracts from the ultimate goal. If you don't try this game you are doing yourself a great disservice IMO. Franchises like COD, HALO etc... for some reason get HUGE amounts of slack when they are reviewed despite how cookie cutter and glitch laden they are. If you are an RPG fan you need this in your collection, period. Once you start getting abilities, skills and magic card collected the game really shines and get more and more enjoyable.
A fantastic RPG with some minor flaws
Like a lot of people, I was curious to see how this game would turn out. As we all know, the first game sucked - but in an almost endearing way. It was like a B movie or a slo-mo car wreck that you just can't take your eyes off. Well, to cut to the chase, the second game fixes a LOT of the problems the first one had. Now, I can see why some people might not like this game, but I think that anyone who's a fan of RPGs and can't wait for Skyrim should check this one out. My highlights: crafting, magic system, alchemy, multiplayer. Multiplayer is a blast; I actually get mad at it because it distracts me from the main game! Don't get me wrong, this game still has some issues that seem to have carried over from the first game (some terrible voice acting), but they're easy to ignore or just not worry about. Also - for folks who are having problems with the UI hanging off the screen, you can fix it easily! Just go into the menu (I think it's under graphics) and choose 'safe area on'. Gotta recommend this game for RPG fans! :D
Looks to be greatly improved...
The original Two Worlds is one my favorite guilty pleasures on the 360. The graphics were subpar, the voice acting was so bad that my wife still makes fun of it, the horses were broken beyond usefulness, and the leveling was so far off that after ten hours the player character could roll over anything on the map. However, the game stuck with me, and unlike so many others, I've never traded it back in. It had a massive open world, simple combat, and a diablo style look system. I found myself falling in love with it. This didn't prevent me from hoping for a sequel. That hope has come true and this game looks like everything we poor fans of the original could have wanted. It appears to be keeping much of the spirit of the first game, but with improvements to game engine, graphics, combat, magic, you name it, it is supposed to be fixed. The game is already released in Europe and preliminary reviews are placing it in the 8 to 9 review number range, a stratosphere that the original certainly never aspired. I'm looking forward to Two Worlds II, and I've already got it preordered!
descent and fun
This game is good to most anyone, i am not a hardcore gamer and usually don't play rpg's unless on the computer and even then its not all that fun, but this game was fun tell the end (though it did give me a hard time in the beginning).
The graphics in the scenery were amazing but the character movement took a little bit of that great graphics away, the story line was really good but left you for a while during the middle, the sound was all right but when it came to the music it was slow and didnt leave you with adrenalin like in oblivion, the game was fun even after completing it and multiplayer is great, i think every rpg should have multiplayer somehow so that you could show off your awesome armor and weapons but thats just me, multiplayer is my favorite thing in the game cause i love playing with friends.
I suggest if you like rpg, or if you never played one before, buy this game its fun and long lasting and if you need help on somthing just check ign strategies or youtube - mahalo videos
A REAL RPG
If you like to be led around like a dog on a leash and have everything explained to you, this is NOT for you. If you are a hardcore RPG gamer, buy this! I have not had so much fun since Oblivion! I even like this better then Oblivion. Two Worlds has Better graphics and better inventory control. I love how you can 'break" down items to improve you current equipment. I really like the way you design spells and mix potions. This game treats you like you have a brain. You have a problem that needs to be solved, here is a Virtual world to do it in, have fun! The only problem I saw was some minor lag issues when traveling fast. BYW, the "blurry" graphics is on purpose, its called motion blur. Drive fast in your car, then look on the road.... blurry huh? It makes the realistic portion of the game better. Kindof like when you turn left and right, it is not perfect, it "wobbles" a little, cool! I have played 40 hours on the campaign and 10 online. I have no where near half done on the campaign and online, well let will be a while....
The Perfect Apology.
It's like SouthPeak is saying "Sorry about the last game guys, this is what we REALLY meant to make." in comparison to Two Worlds 1. Sure, the graphics aren't as good as in dragon age......BUT LOOK AT THE LAST GAME!!!!!! The Gameplay for Two Worlds 2 is absolutely enjoyable, even though your character runs funny and the voice dialog is a little off at times. There's a lot of options in this game from gambling, hunting, questing, exploring, to even playing music for money!! The multiplayer Co-op is absolutely phenominal and the creatures in this game are fantastic! You can go from getting rocks thrown at you by a babboon to fleeing for your life from a freaking awesome DRAGON! I like dragons. The first hour or two of single player seems a bit dry but it absolutely picks up as you get into the flow of the game. All around, once you get past the voice dialog and the funny running, it's a great game for anyone who loves medieval fantasy!
A diamond in the rough.
Gonna keep this short. Two Worlds 2 is an excellent hardcore RPG. The game is rough not the outside, but it is easy to look past if you give the game a chance. After one kinda bad hour of gameplay, it all opens up and reveals an excellent free-roaming action rpg that is both highly customizable and fun to play. It is difficult and it requires a great deal of time, but that's what RPGs are all about! The campaign is lengthy and to top it all off there is a fun multiplayer mode that allows you to create a separate character and level him/her up with your friends through 1 of 8 raids, with more to come in DLC. You can also duel other players or take part in deathwatches. This mode isn't very fleshed out, but it is fun to test out your newly leveled characters. I recommend this game to anyone looking for an old fashioned action rpg. You just have to look past the kind of ugly outside to appreciate it and if you can do that, you will discover that this game truly is a diamond and it is well worth your time and money.
This game started out realy boring ,but when i finaly got into it I thought it was O.K.....The splite screen thing realy got on my nerves but when i finaly got it fixed and was able to see every thing i realy started to like it. Now competing with other RPG games it kinda fall flat.. The story only comes out in very littale bets...the fighting it kinda gets old....and It realy doesnt tell you what to do....Its easy to kell some of hte bosses becouse its easy to corner thim...But the reaguler minoins are a little diffeclt to deal with......Now the sword fighting like I said gets old and the bow an arow is one of the one things i realy liked to use..you can shoot two arrows at a time and its esasyer when your fighting harder minions....Now the magic its kinda boring and barly herts the enomy...I never got around to finishing the game becouse I wanted Dragon age 2 more so i dont know how it ends but if your looking for a long story line and take forever to beat game this just might be for you.
Two Worlds 2!!!
It's Beautiful!!! It's Amazing!!! It's Perfect For Every RPG Lover!!! This game is my New Fav, it is everything it was chalked up to be. Theres so much you can do, it's is never ending. Breaking Down Weapons to there raw materials, and using those materials to upgrade basically anything else you like in your main inventory, building your own village from ground up, playing Online in an endless world of Awesomensess. This game is a must have if you guys have played Elder Scrolls, you will be so addicted once you play this. This game is ALL i can think of, even when i'm with my girl, i'm thinking about this, lol D***. I Love this game, everyone get this, no question, and don't think about the first one, infact just don't play that, it can"t even touch this one!!! This game has Elder Scrolls lV beaten, Fallout, and deff Fable. All i can say is get this. Also, if you guys have any questions, or any problems with the game, or just want to talk about it, hit me up on Xbox Live, Maclane0911, and lets talk.
