Rated 6 out of 10 by Dcon 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.
Rated 8 out of 10 by RPG customer 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Sigh 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.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Pos3idon36 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Chaos 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.
Rated 7 out of 10 by GamingChamp 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Two Worlds Rock Good rpg...
I got the Two Worlds version that came out for PC and I thought it looked really cool. Well, I was wrong it was awesome except for the fact it kept hitting errors, so I sold the PC version and got the 360 version thinking they were the same but there weren't. The 360 version is a lot better in my opinion the graphics are a lot better and there are no computer glitches. I would suggest this game to anyone who likes RPGs with good story lines and hack and slash action but not for the ones who like a lot of customization and item gathering. The characters and monsters are pretty cool and very lifelike (of course I do not see many giant dragons in real life). The background scenery could have been done better but it is still really good. I get really annoyed at all of those people who say a game stinks just because it isn't as good as a different game they may have. I have never play oblivion but I have played a lot of the other elder scrolls games, I know they are usually really good but still this game is by far just as good!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ulderan 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer Looks Good
First off, the graphics are just stunning. I dont play many rpgs but i played Oblivion, Diablo and so on. Oblivon was just boring. I played it for the easy 1250 gamer score. Not to mention at level 19 i wiped out all of tamerial with a lousy bow that did 10 base dmg. The guards are just stupid basicall asking "do you want to kill me or do you want to go to jail. not to mention when you try killing the guy he just says stop you have violated the law. Diablo failed miserably because i played online and 4 days later i was level 90. I want a challenge when i play a game. Not to mention after i got all my gear on Diablo my stuff just disapears. Fable was the same way the stupid guards just die when i barely lift my sword. So I am hoping that Two Worlds gets it right. Oblivion was off to a decent start except no online makes it repetitive. All Rpgs are repetitive but people dont care when they can pvp and loot dungeons with friends.
Rated 0 out of 10 by BloodWolfpsp seems like an improved oblivion
From what I see here, this game appears to be an improved oblivion style of game, pointing out where oblivion has its flaws. For example the bads in oblivion, inability to fight on horses, same music throughout the game, the shores are horrible, bareley anydetail or emphasis on the ground near the shores. The fights get repetative after a while, where the creatures continue to attack in the same fight style, and the same ai in every creature, or at least two different kinds of ai, spell caasting and mindless hacking. Not to put down that oblivion is a bad game, I have beaten the whole game with every achievement unlocked, and explored a little over half the dungeons. I would give oblivion an 8, but maybe this game can strive for a nine or above if they follow through on what they are planning So hopefully this game can live up to what its saying and not fall behind on what truly makes an RPG game. "the storyline"
