  • Summary: Two Worlds combines the dynamic combat system the meaning and freedom of exploration. 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. Two Worlds is a game that will surely appeal to RPG fans, but even fans of the genre will be irritated by the countless problems with the game.
  4. Badly scripted, plotted and acted. [Nov 2007, p.90]
  5. Unless you're astonishingly tolerant of technical and interface problems, and totally addicted to dull hack-and-slash RPG combat, don't buy this game. Forsooth.
  6. I hate this game. It's an embarrassment, a misfire in every respect. A game that thought it could compete with the big boys and ends up being one of the worst experiences you'll find on the 360.

    It's rare that a game releases that is so shockingly incompetent. Online options don't make it any better; they're simply a chance to play a terrible game with other people, in a few innovative modes like "Team Deathmatch." When something this just plain malign comes out, it's cause for a sort of celebration, because every other game will seem better by comparison.

    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 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

    While this may be a buggy and unpolished mess, I still had a lot of fun with this, but I still can't ignore this games many flaws, like I said it has tons of bugs and glitches, and it also has some of the worst graphics on the 360, I've sen better looking PS2 games, and the sound is awful, from the horrible voice acting (this may be the worst voice acting of all time) to the horrible music and sound effects, your going to want to turn the volume off, there was only one cool moment with the sound during the final boss, but it was over in like 30 seconds, and the horse controls don't work at all, you can't even control the horse it wont respond to the controls, and will run off and act crazy while your on its back, one time the horse ran straight into water and drowned us both, also just while walking around you will get a random load time, and it generally lacks polish everywhere, the story is decent but has the worst "good" ending of all time, but yet even with these flaws I still found myself coming back and having a blast, there is a TON of side quests and loot, a HUGE world to explore I would even say that it's one the largest open world games of all time, many different enemy types to kill, and it just has some kind of weird charm to it, so if you can put up with all it's flaws you can easily put hundreds of hours into this massive RPG, but it's going to be hard to do because of the numerous flaws it has, and I can't help but feel that with more polish also maybe a bigger budget, that this could be the next big RPG, here's hoping that the newly released Two Worlds 2 has fixed all these flaws, because this has a lot off good ideas and incredibly large potential.

    Awful controls and interface, terrible frame rate stuttering this should not have even been released on 360 with out proper optimization. The odd thing is that its not really demanding to run on a PC and looks and plays better. Expand

    This game is terrible. 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 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
