Average User Score: 7.0Oct 25, 2011First off, don't play Soccer games with a keyboard. I played this on PC using a 360 controller for windows. However I must keep in mind those who do not own this piece of hardware (or any controller) and therefore judge this playing with keyboard, and I must say, it is a terrible way of playing, DON'T DO IT. You're better of buying the game for the console than for the PC.
I must say however, that this is the only real downside I can think of regarding this release for the PC.
The game itself is great, the graphics are very nice and the physics get more realistic each year. It's not a great deal different from its predecessors but that's because most of these games are finished, there is nothing more to add. However, they have added one new feature regarding physics and that's the collision. The collisions are realistic, though somewhat annoying, which means you can't bump into a player and magically circle around them. You collide with them, causing people to fall. Not a great addition but still a nice thing to see nonetheless.
I'm happy to see all the modes are still there, including my favorite: Career mode, using my personally created player. There's a mode for practicing but also friendly matches can be played.
It also plays very smoothly, and I'm not talking fps wise (that all depends on your specs).
All in all, great game if you like them. But I would recommend getting the console version rather than the PC one, unless you have some sort of controller.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.6Oct 25, 2011We all remember the failure of a creation that is Two Worlds. It was a poor game, the voice acting was terrible, the combat sucked, there was just not a lot of positive things to say really.
Which is why I'm glad to say that Two Worlds II is actually a decent game. If you like RPGs, I must add.
When I first played this game it was a bit more than half a year old. I have enjoyed this game a lot, played all the side quests, so far I've spent about 10-15 hours and I don't have the feeling I'm nearly done. The graphics are very nice as well. The bloom effects however can get a bit exaggerated - sometimes you'll be talking to a person who is reflecting the sunlight instead of just being brightened by it. The spell effects look nice though, and a lot of the creature models are just awesome. Unfortunately there's some less good looking ones in there as well. Which gives you a better feeling when killing it - putting the poor bastards out of their misery.
The combat is great as well. There are physical skills you can use, magical ones and ranged ones. You can swap between weapons with the press of one button which allows you to incinerate monsters that are immune to your physical swings.
Character development is nice. The creation of your character is obviously what you start the game with, purely physical. You are unskilled. As you level up you can spend points in attributes and skills, shaping the character entirely the way you want, as is the expected standard for an RPG.
I'm not all that excited about the voice acting. Your characters sounds a bit too cheesy darky seriousy. Other characters' voices can be a bit poorly done as well, but there are some good actors in there.
All in all I like this game a lot, I'm a sucker for RPGs I must add though. The graphics are good, the elements that you expect from an RPG are there, and there is enough to do to waste a lot of your free hours.… Expand
Average User Score: 3.1Oct 25, 2011A nasty surprise for Stronghold fans. This game is very buggy and has an unfinished feel to it. Let me rephrase that: This game has been released in a state it shouldn't be. It's like a fetus gets pulled out of a womb months before its time. This should have never been released in this state.
Furthermore, there is a lack of skirmish mode, which means you have to deal with the current campaigns as they are. They are impossibly difficult, not as much to say the game is challenging, but you have the feeling you're not fighting the virtual enemies, rather the bugs you come across. There is no bonus for standing on walls, and your men at arms get stuck when they can't hit their enemies. What is that all about?
A lot of people say they don't like the graphics, but I think they're the only pro to this game as far as I'm concerned. I think this game is salvageable with a lot of patching, but for now I'd suggest you all wait till it's in the bargain bin.… Expand
