  • 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 found this game at gamestop for 6.99 and the guy at game stop was trying to presuade me to pick something else. Never wanting to listen to critics and reviews i bought it anyway. Not as bad as poeple say the voice acting is really funny the graphics are ok. everybody is screaming about framerate i don't think half of the people fussing about framerate even know what it is. OBLIVION has glitches it is not a perfect game either and at times it can be boring. two worlds has tons of loot, money armor weapons woooooooooooo i just found an axe that is 315-850 attack damage. for me its about loot
    i can over look graphics for all that loot i pick locked a tresure chest that had 15,000 gold oh my god.
    and two worlds 2 has more loot. everybody should try this game if you like armor weapons customization(remember (baldurs gate) random generation of weapons and armor. the story is pretty good too I have to play and finish part one before i can really play part 2 GRAPHICS FAIR GAMEPLAY GOOD, LOOT AND MORE LOOT AWESOME.....

    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.

    i was kinda excited about this game when i first heard about it . then i played it and every thing went down hill from there . lets start with the graphics they are abysmal they look like they belong on the PS2 or original xbox . then the horrid voice acting it reminds me of the 90s style voice acting you use to hear in games like resident evil or house of the dead . the story is bland as hell not intresting so not much motivation to keep pushing foward . the combat is dull basicaly just hack n slash . the game is very buggy and glitchy . you will get freeze ups , getting stuck in things , and quests getting screwed up so you cant finish them , the dilouge is also rancid dog crap i heard may hap so many times i wanted to may hap my foot up this games ass.the co op set up is completely broken. this game should be avoided at all costs .

    THIS IS A TERRIBLE GAME. I advise you not to buy it. This game is not polished compared to other RPG's out there. I HAVE WASTED MONEY ON THIS GAME....

    This game gets a 1 only because it was an attempt at a fairly hard-line rpg. To that, I say kudos. But beyond that...what an extraordinary mess. This game had brutal, and I mean brutal, voice acting, frame rates bordered unplayable, the game froze 3 times in 30 minutes...I played it for 30 minutes, picked it out of my tray and threw the game away. It's bad. Really bad. I didn't want to see it. I can understand why some may be ultra forgiving...it is a hardline open world rpg...but no, not for me. This game is lucky it got the 1 I gave it.

    this is truly the worst game i have ever played, i bring it home thinking WOW this could be better than oblivion, i put in the disc and soon realise that this is wrong in every sense of the word, the map, inventory, HUD, weapons, missions, players, bows, other people and move movements are all wrong and embarrassingly bad, i'm saddened that i even bought this game, this is n't even just my opinion, it's been rated the worst game ever by anyone who's played anything half decent, therefore it gained a 1/10 from me for it's failure in the simple and complex things, i mean it doesn't even have an aiming reticule for the bows and people sometimes turn out as black cubes.
