The ultimate goal of the Two Worlds project is to deliver a superior Role Playing Game to the PC and Xbox 360 market where players have a real chance to shape the game world with their actions - to an extent that has yet to seen in other productions. This premise is supported with a strong, non-linear storyline and stunning combat sequences. The world comes to life as it immediately reacts to the player's actions and changes accordingly - offering new and exciting challenges. Players can shape their own story by choosing the path of conducting the main conflict and resolving meaningful side-quests. The combat system combines intuitive steering, tactical challenges and movie-like visual experiences. Players can experiment with different careers and even reverse their former choices with the help of "career changers". Players can travel and fight on various animals from horses to tamed lizards and beasts. Randomly generated pieces of equipment, thematic sets and combined items offer the space to experiment and satisfy the need to collect. [SouthPeak Interactive] Expand

  1. If you've been jonesing for a return to a huge, open-ended roleplaying world with a ton of depth and a rousing storyline, you'll find yourself right at home in at least one of these Two Worlds. [Dec 2007, p.78]
  2. A decent, if uninspired fantasy RPG in the vein of the Elder Scrolls and Gothic series. Its biggest problem is the generic fantasy setting combined with general mediocrity. But in the end, it is fun to play, and there can never be too many RPGs like that. [Sept 2007]
  3. Epic scale and depth of content make Two Worlds worthwhile.
  4. To its credit, Two Worlds dares to be less conventional than Oblivion, but it's not nearly as polished in any regard. The unbalanced difficulty makes for a frustrating first few hours, and there's little incentive to return to the game after completing the main story line.
  5. It's easy to see the thinking behind Two Worlds. Elder Scrolls has been a massive hit and it'll be years before another hits home: When opportunity knocks... [Oct 2007, p.89]
  6. Two Worlds succeeds at what it sets out to provide – a poor man’s Oblivion and a simple, unrestrictive introduction to role playing games.
  7. Think of a bug that has annoyed you at some point throughout the videogame-playing years of your life and it’s more than likely that Two Worlds has suffered from it at some stage. [Nov 2007, p.114]

    People always complain about "perfection" in a game. games are made to entertain ourselves. like in life, NOTHING is perfect. games are not People always complain about "perfection" in a game. games are made to entertain ourselves. like in life, NOTHING is perfect. games are not made to be perfect. they are made for people to spend..enjoy and having a good time playing. Of course i rather play oblivion that this one, but still, oblivion is just one game, and to see another RPG with another story is just great. im really happy to been able to play this game. it gave me a lot of hours of entertaining. i dont give a 10 because like in every game, there is something i dont like. but still great game.

    First impression is bad because of lack of graphical detail especiallyin faces - but then the experience gets richer and richer the more you First impression is bad because of lack of graphical detail especiallyin faces - but then the experience gets richer and richer the more you travel the world - and then you realize that the atmosphere is great, there are a lot of great items, interesting plot, great sidequest and some real graphical gems at times/in parts....try it!

    I liked it, free-roaming round an interesting world and plenty of quests. The dialogue is hilarious, particularly your guy. Gotta use a horse I liked it, free-roaming round an interesting world and plenty of quests. The dialogue is hilarious, particularly your guy. Gotta use a horse as it is fast for travel and can tip the odds in your favour if the bandits are tough. Traps work well as well in large quantities. I didn't like the scarcity of horses and the controls for horses being a bit ropey. Didn't like helping a town and then having to cause it's destruction either. But on the whole I got good value out of it and many features I prefered to Oblivion (the levelling up scheme, and fewer, more detailed dungeons etc. amongst others) Expand

I really liked some mechanics (and some I hated), at some points story was quite immersive, but most of the time it wasn't truly memorable. I wouldn't say it's a terrible game, as I wouldn't say it's particularly good. However, I imagine some people will really love it.
    Biggest advantage? Spell creation system.

Terrible art, graphics technology, sound, voice-acting, performance, combat-mechanics, no first-person combat... If they hadn't have compared this game to Oblivion, it might have been acceptable, but they raised the bar too high and have crippled themselves. I'm so disappointed in this game that I'm blacklisting the developer. Expand
