  1. 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.
  3. Epic scale and depth of content make Two Worlds worthwhile.
  4. Two Worlds aims high and delivers a flawed-yet-decent role-playing game that is lengthy and occasionally fun.
  5. 68
    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.
  6. 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.
  7. 60
    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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. It's a shame that for every step forward, Two Worlds takes about five steps back.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

    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.
  14. 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.
  15. It was apparently made on a low-end budget and pushed out long before it was ready.

    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]

    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]
  19. This ambitious game is a little rough around the edges concerning the production which unfortunately hinders many of the gameplay aspects.
  20. At the moment though, the game is simply far too flawed to be recommended.

    Badly scripted, plotted and acted. [Nov 2007, p.90]

    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 »

    My friend and I hoped to have a rich multiplayer experience. What I got was just the opposite. I cant get online at all! I have 10 other xbox My friend and I hoped to have a rich multiplayer experience. What I got was just the opposite. I cant get online at all! I have 10 other xbox live titles that work just fine. But for some reason Two Worlds disconnect me every try. The single player glitches left and right. just bad frame rate problems 24/7 I cant believe an xbox 360 game runs this bad Microsoft certification sucks. I hear if you ever attacka village they will forever hate you lol. Next, the quests can be a bit confusing sometimes you'll only do part of the main quest and it'll dim out yer quest like its done. Besides the piss poor performance and buggy engine game has some decent single player actually. I will try to finish when I get time. I like how bodies stay, mobs dont level up with ya, and some of the fun side quests. The character advancement system is very nice too you dont have to pick a Class. Full Review »

    If Oblivion was the Lord of the Rings for the 360, this is the Chronicles of Narnia....this game could have used a lot of polish before this If Oblivion was the Lord of the Rings for the 360, this is the Chronicles of Narnia....this game could have used a lot of polish before this was released.
