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. There's a lot to Two Worlds that will take you an eternity to complete. This is probably the biggest draw to the game that I can mention. It is one of those games that you can put down, wait a while, come back to it, and rekindle the enjoyment you had the first time around.

    If you can ignore the occasional glitches and poorly thought out menus, Two Worlds can be a fantastic single player experience. Just don't buy for Xbox Live...at least not yet.
  3. Odds are, if you can stomach Two Worlds' first hour and get into the meat of the gameplay, you'll enjoy what it has to offer. [Nov 2007, p.90]
  4. Badly scripted, plotted and acted. [Nov 2007, p.90]
  5. As it stands, this is something most gamers will refuse to play until several updates and fixes are made. The sad part? This game is strangely addicting at times. Imagine what could have been.
  6. In the end, Two Worlds is a bit like when you know there’s a five pound note hidden under a pile of rancid, squishy, steaming manure – sure, you’d like the money, but is it really worth wading through all that poop to get to it?
  7. Tiresome gameplay, Unusuable maps, Broken combat. [Issue#24, p.78]

    I don't understand why this game has such a poor review, it's a bit glitchy at times, I've gotten stuck before, but overall I don't understand why this game has such a poor review, it's a bit glitchy at times, I've gotten stuck before, but overall the storyline and character development are great. I liked this much better than oblivion. Expand

    This is a game about killing monsters, collecting loot, and making your guy stronger so you can kill stronger monsters, get more loot, and on This is a game about killing monsters, collecting loot, and making your guy stronger so you can kill stronger monsters, get more loot, and on and on and on. If you like that sort of thing, you will like this game. If not, you'll hate it. That's about all there is to it. The only reason I dock the score is because the game really could have used some more polish. It looks like Gothic, but with higher resolution textures, better lighting effects, and a clippy framerate. The voice acting is also terrible, but whatever. Expand

    Ah two worlds. This might truly be the worst game I've ever played. The amount of problems is huge. I'll start with the negatives. First, it'sAh two worlds. This might truly be the worst game I've ever played. The amount of problems is huge. I'll start with the negatives. First, it's the worst voice acting of all time, which can be funny at Times, so it's not too bad to listen to. The combat has some problems, you can basically dodge any attack in the game with some decent timing. My two biggest problems are this, 1: the quest guide and map are not easy to use, they really have a rough feel and scrolling the quests doesn't make sense and took me like an hour to even get used to them. 2: after about 3 hours of game play I was level 13 and had done the quests in the beginning area, after that I got completely lost, there is no direction in the games, side quests are all over the place , it's hard to get over the negatives but I did. So the positives.. There aren't too many. I like the combat even though you can dodge everything, the magic kind of sucks, but attacking with just sword and shield isn't too bad. The crafting kind of blows too, I just throw stuff in there and do it just to do it. Enchanting weapons is easy but is pretty dumb. I did notice one thing though and someone get back to me on this.. Is the main character in love with his sister? Like.. They seem like the want to bang all the time when they talk and she's wearing some super revealing clothes. I understand she is like the only women in the world in this game but it was pretty creepy how he talked to her. Overall this game sucks, but it's pretty fun to play, not worth anything over $15.

    Personally, I couldn't take this game fore more than the first hour. While it does have some attractive visuals in the environments, the Personally, I couldn't take this game fore more than the first hour. While it does have some attractive visuals in the environments, the character models are downright ugly, and the game features some of the worst voice acting I have yet to encounter. Plus, the combat system is a mindless button-mashing hack-n-slash, and again, I have to say... the abysmal quality of the voice acting extends to even the "Ugs!" made by enemies that you're attacking. For all I know, this game has a great story that I'll never see... but it would be like watching elementary students perform a great Shakesperian play... just not worth the torture. Expand

It is like a strung out wannabe version of Oblivion. Graphics look early x-box quality at best. The programing stinks, lock ups, slow downs etc. The voice overs are garbage, hard to listen too without puking. Very disapointing To sum this game up its total crap...avoid it. Expand

    Are all you morons blind!? or are you simply one person continusly voting over and over again to get the score up? This game Are all you morons blind!? or are you simply one person continusly voting over and over again to get the score up? This game SUUUUUCCCCKKKKSS! all it is a an extremly watered down version of Obiliovn.....YES...OBILVION!!!! are any of you poeple even aware of that fact? have you ever played THAT game? You are all insane if you think this game is 'great' with 'hours of play time' I can see it if you have neer played any other game in your life. Judgeing from the reviews posted only morons like this game. I play it for around 8 hours when i stayed with my friend (who got it for some dumb reason) Every one on this website said that "it takes time to get into it" SO thats what i did....I took time to get into it and you know what.....IT STILL SUCKED! so all of you (or I'm really just expecting roughly 1 of you clones) who think this is a game to get lost in are complete utter moron and wouldnt know a good game if (like ZZ said) whipped your own a$$ with it. (which this game doesnt even do very well!) Expand
