Great game for those who will look past the flaws
This game has a lot of good qualities, with some minor frustrations. I really do think this game got terrible ratings because it got released around the same time Oblivion did. I will say that this is a hack and slash game that hardcore RPG fans will enjoy, and really no one else. There are some really ingenious things in Two Worlds that I want put into other games. For example you kill a lot of the same enemies and have 10 of the same armor. Instead of carrying 10 items and trying to go to a shopkeeper every 10 seconds, you can just combine them. This leads to great fun for me. Combining 5 of the same low level weapon could be useful to a high level character. The story is pretty terrible and the gameplay is average, but the RPG elements are still there. My main frustration with this game is that in order to learn skills you have to find a specific trainer. These trainers are pretty dang hard to find without any sort of guide. I just wish I could use all the skills from the start.
A very good game
Let me make a point here...
All of you are complaining that this game is trash and not worth playing because of the graphics and sound... What about the old-school games?
The old school games never had the best graphics and sound but people played them and had fun! THEN these systems come out and people complain that the sound and graphics are bad, when they don't look back at older games back in the years and compared them to the current games without playing them completely!! SO....If this is a bad game...should we just say it's "trash" like we basically did with the systems like the NES, SNES, Dreamcast, etc., and just throw them out and put them out of the picture?
Basically what I'm saying is:
PLAY THE FRIGGIN' GAME COMPLETELY BEFORE THROWING IT AWAY!! IT MIGHT NOT AS BAD AS YOU THINK!!
This is a great game, I think it's one of the most underrated games ever made. And it's a heck of a lot better than the second one.
Not as bad as you've been told.
For starters the price. That's pretty darn good. For seconds this game is what I like to call a "B" game. You know what that means right? Budget! The dreaded "b" word. Ive played some fantastic b-games and some not so fantastic b-games. This game certainly has its faults: horrendous voice acting, buggy as mess camera panning, and some pretty unrealistic animations (I am thinking of the boar). On the other hand this game has a lot going for it. Its graphics aren't too shabby i mean they're not excellent but they're not like quake one era graphics. It actually has some gorgeous vista's. The inventory system is where this game really shines. Something rather akin to old Dungeon siege with a new twist: Hefting around 100 swords of the same type? Combine them! Duh! One really powerful sword with a 1mil price tag? Sounds pretty good to me. I haven't beaten it yet but the story line is alright but not wonderful. Other than that this makes an excellent b-game.
Give it a chance you'll be pleasantly surprised
Seriously Two Worlds is a really great Role Playing Game, if you give it a chance and play at least 2 hours of the game you would understand. The game's controls are a little complicated at first but taking the time to learn them really pays off. It's not supposed to be the exact same game as Oblivion so don't dis it for trying to have originality. It is a really long game with a fairly good storyline, the different difficulties can make it challenging or easy if you want it to be. A lot of people said it had terrible voice acting and controls. When the people talked, it was pretty bad but that was only in a few cutscenes such as the opening one. As for the controls, the only thing I had trouble with was the horse riding but horses aren't even very necessary because you can teleport to many places. Trust me, it's much better if you play it for more than 10 minutes, and it has hundreds of spells, weapons, armor and some of the best character customization I have ever seen.
Not NEARLY as bad as people claim...
Though I've been aware of this game for some time, it wasn't until very recently that I decided to give it a try, mostly because it was on sale for ****. When I first read about it, the reviews were scathing, with some calling it the "worst game on 360" even. Let me just say that while this game isn't even close to the level of Oblivion, it's much better than people give it credit for. I think the most important thing when starting Two Worlds is your attitude. If you're going into it expecting a flawless game, then yes you probably will not find it very entertaining. But if you approach it with a sense of humor, and appreciation for it quirks, then the game is a fun and rewarding experience. Yes, the inventory system leaves a lot to be desired, and yes it pretty much just throws you out there without much guidance, but for me personally, this is a much better game than others that have come out more recently (Divinity II, Risen). Honestly, this game's biggest downfall is that people seem to go into expecting Oblivion, part 2. But if you're looking for a cheap game to keep you entertained for awhile, then Two Worlds is perfect.
Every thing takes from something else.
Why say it, we know, blah, blah, blah stole blah, but to even start that you need to go back to the first game to introduce high fantasy, and before that D&D, and before that what ever gave birth to D&D. Do we really want them to forsake a design if it works great, because it happen to be based on something else. Oblivion was annoying in so many ways, limited number of designs to enemies, the enemies adjusting to your level, none of them really had any purpose, just randomly placed, all the characters look some what deformed, after the 3rd ruin I went in I did not explore anymore unless it was for a quest, they were basically the same. Two worlds offers so much more, if it holds true to what they promise, and they are delaying it, which is good, using that time to refine it. Heh, all I can say is I am looking forward to it, and while you who reject it because it based on something else like everything is, I will be enjoying my effects on a possibly interesting world.
Okay if you have nothing else....
This game is definitely fun. But there are many problems with it. Enough to make me not recommend it... for $**. For $** however, I really think its worth it. If your in a gaming drought, and have nothing else, this could work. The combat system is the worst part of this game, but it's not terribly terrible. The Graphics are good at times, but character models are not very good. There is ALOT to do and I mean ALOT. Story line is weird and you will probably not pay attention to any part of it, but it's a good thing to keep you on track. You can't customize your character very much but I'm not really complaining too much about that part. Sounds in the game are very nice, it fits the atmosphere well and makes you feel more into the game. If you've never played Oblivion, this game doesn't compare in any part. Oblivion is by far the better game. But if you've played it and are looking for more, this game will work. Just don't expect a masterpiece like Oblivion.
Great open world RPG
Overall, this game was fantastic. The first impression is a little rough. I played the first 10 min and turned it off, but when I came back to it and gave it a couple hours, once I understood the game play, I fell in love. I was as addicted to this game as I was Dragon Age Origins. I loved the ability to custom boost (compound) your weapons & armor and the freedom to really do whatever you want, including slaughtering entire cities if you wanted or murder citizens behind closed doors and robbing them of money & items. The degree of weapons & armor boosting seems limitless. To some, a character built up to the point of a God makes the game unchallenging and boring, but I like walking around borderline invincible. Great game, very addictive and I'll be looking forward to part 2 FOR SURE!
Obilvion or Two worlds
From everything i have read in magazine's and read online this game looks pimp. Although I have to wonder why half the people refer to this game as an oblivion wannabe? because for it to be an oblivion wannabe it would have to have a similar storyline similar quest lines and similar interactions as obilvion but from what i have read they took what was good about obilvion which there is no law against and improved on what was wrong because to be honest I loved oblivion But I HATE!!! the way some characters look and the very little choice of armour's that look bad ass I haven't heard to much about the way you can set up your characters and such but I hope it is better than oblivion in those respects. But back to my main point It looks like a good solid buy and I hope they make expansion's for it that turn out just as good. And by the by WoW is the most generic of game types comparing games to WoW is like saying the sun lights the earth but in a crappy way.
For People Who Love Roamers
This is a solid game. Yea if you don't like roamers and rpgs you should not buy this game otherwise its a great buy. The story line is fun and exciting, as well as interesting to the end. It has plenty of side missions and places to explore that are just there to explore. The graphics left a lot to want but people should not buy a game based on the graphics. Game play and story line is all that really matters. The controls were well thought and worked well with an rpg like this. If you want a game with plenty of hours of play time then this is it. If you want a game where you have a set path you should save your money. A game like this is one that receives a lot of scrutiny and is target from a specific group of gamers so if you are not in this group you probably not like it. All in all if you enjoy third person rpgs and roamers then this is a game for you.
