  1. Epic scale and depth of content make Two Worlds worthwhile.
  2. Two Worlds aims high and delivers a flawed-yet-decent role-playing game that is lengthy and occasionally fun.

    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.

    The execution is flawed. On both Xbox 360 and PC this game is buggy and unpolished, and these quirks will prevent it from duplicating the real key to Oblivion's success: mainstream appeal.

    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]

    An epic adventure that's come too late and is let down by being rough around the edges. [Nov 2007, p.72]
  7. This ambitious game is a little rough around the edges concerning the production which unfortunately hinders many of the gameplay aspects.

    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]

    Two Worlds is a good game that suffers from a shoddy port. You would best be playing it on PC. Or, better yet, playing Oblivion.
  10. 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.
  11. As a fan of role playing games, it pains me to see Two Worlds released in such a haphazard condition. It’s actually an entertaining, rewardingly difficult RPG, unfortunately locked up in a graphical engine wrought with massive problems, containing gameplay riddled with design issues, and features a currently lag-filled multiplayer.
  12. At the moment though, the game is simply far too flawed to be recommended.
  13. If you're looking for a sub-par RPG with a sub-par storyline, sub-par gameplay, sub-par sounds, and very sub-par multiplayer, then sure, pick up Two Worlds.
  14. Two World has nice ideas and swings for the fences, I'll give it that. But lousy animation, funny (in a bad way) voice acting, and the lack of countless small touches ultimately fell this beast.
  15. It's a shame that for every step forward, Two Worlds takes about five steps back.
  16. The simple fact of the matter is that the game has a lot of potential, but it’s ultimately critically wounded by poor gameplay design and one of the worst engines in recent memory.
  17. Two Worlds fails to live up to any of its so-called promises and feels nothing more but a broken and blatant rip-off of Oblivion.
  18. Compared to the hype, Two Worlds is a bitter disappointment.

    Two Worlds is not the worst game on the Xbox 360. But it is the worst RPG available for Microsoft's console.

    Badly scripted, plotted and acted. [Nov 2007, p.90]
  21. It was apparently made on a low-end budget and pushed out long before it was ready.

    This game was trying to be the challenger to Oblivion, but that"s like if a 7 year old tried to beat Mohamed Ali on the ring, it's not a fightThis game was trying to be the challenger to Oblivion, but that"s like if a 7 year old tried to beat Mohamed Ali on the ring, it's not a fight but a massacre if you want to compare both games, but even when judging the game on its own, it"s terrible, let's see why.

    Technically despite some average graphics for the time, the framerate is horrible (and don't expect any patch 10 years later), as soon as you move it drops significantly which is already a pain in the ass and can stop you from playing the game.

    Concerning the gameplay the fighting is boring as hell and don't work great, but the other RPG mechanics are okay, the only good point of the game. The map is pretty big but also empty so you'll just walk most of the time. Once again hard to take any joy from playing.

    Finally the story is a basic fantasy story played by some of the worst actors I've ever heard in my life, honestly go watch some youtube videos they're so bad it's funny. If despite all this flaws you want to finish the game it will length at least 30 hours which is good for a RPG, but ends up way too long for this game.

    In conclusion this is probably the worst game I've played in my life, it's a pain to play, to watch and to listen, Even if you love RPG there's a lot of other options out there before you can even think to try this garbage, I read the second episode is way better, I guess I'll see, but this one is definitively bad.

    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 soonthis 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.

    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. Full Review »
