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.

    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]

    Badly scripted, plotted and acted. [Nov 2007, p.90]
  5. As it stands, this is something most gamers will refuse to play until several updates and fixes are made. The sad part? This game is strangely addicting at times. Imagine what could have been.
  6. In the end, Two Worlds is a bit like when you know there’s a five pound note hidden under a pile of rancid, squishy, steaming manure – sure, you’d like the money, but is it really worth wading through all that poop to get to it?

    Tiresome gameplay, Unusuable maps, Broken combat. [Issue#24, p.78]

    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. Expand

    If you are the kind of gamer who, like me, enjoy an action epic RPG, with lots of hack'n'slashing, trading goods, improving armor If you are the kind of gamer who, like me, enjoy an action epic RPG, with lots of hack'n'slashing, trading goods, improving armor and weapons, wandering for hours in a vast, beautiful and imersing world unveiling quests, this is a excelent choice. Sure Oblivion is better, but Two Worlds is just the next best option, and none of its flaws are remotely that bad to spoil the fun. This game is something like a "next gen Baldur´s Gate": If this does not ring a bell to you, forget it. Expand

    I like this game. I LOVED Oblivion. However, this game is not Oblivion. It has its problems, like many games of this size and scale, but I like this game. I LOVED Oblivion. However, this game is not Oblivion. It has its problems, like many games of this size and scale, but those problems do not take away (much) from my enjoyment of this game. The graphics are fine, I have seen better and worse; and I am not having much of a framerate problem as other folks seem to. GOOD: Cool inventory system (much like Diablo), lots of quests, lots of things to explore, quite difficult (if you don't use those resurrection statues). combat is fin and challenging. BAD: Acting is lame (I have heard much worse), horseback riding is useless and glitchy, character models in dialogues look crappy, hotkey function is poorly handled (most skills and items cannot be used unless you hotkey them. Wha?). Good and bad, but I am hooked. The gameplay is very addicting IF you enjoy role playing games. This actually reminds me more of Morrowind than Oblivion... and I liked Morrowind better out of the two. Rent this, and if you enjoy RPs at all, you'll soon be purchasing it. This game and Bioshock are pretty much controlling my life now! 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 saidWhile 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.

    This game is bad. The only good thing about it is the world is massive and is nice with lots to do. That's the only good thing about the game.This game is bad. The only good thing about it is the world is massive and is nice with lots to do. That's the only good thing about the game. The game does have potential and a year or two more in development would have been great. The script and voice acting is bad I mean really bad. The cut sense are crap and the mission are mainly go to point a to b several times and some time you need to fight some one. Now on to the combat. There are lots of monster to fight in the world which is good. But I hate this game for the combat. I can't get magic to work and there is no curser to use so you cant aim with a bow so you have to hope the arrow hit. Sword play consists of spamming right trigger and you view doesn't lock on so you can't target properly and you can't dodge so that sucks. The game could be better but as it is it's crap Expand

    When I was playing this, I thought, "Wow, this would've been an awesome game if it had been released about 5 years ago on PC/Xbox." When I was playing this, I thought, "Wow, this would've been an awesome game if it had been released about 5 years ago on PC/Xbox." Graphics are poor, but that's not a huge concern compared to the other flaws. The interface reminds me of Diablo. As such, it is much better suited for a mouse. Trying to organize your inventory or boost a particular spell takes a long time, as you must awkwardly try to use the analog stick to select an object and, once you've found it, try to remember which button uses it and which button drops it. Malee combat is lame. I had a single combat animation that was promoted by tapping RT. Depending on the elevation difference between you and your enemy, 1/3rd to 1/2 of your attacks might hit. Magic is a bit more interesting to use, but not by much. The worst part in this panoply of failures is the voice acting. Yes, I know you're a small studio, but seriously, this game has the worst voice acting I've ever heard. Also, the subtitles often end in question marks even when the characters aren't asking questions. I tried to get into this game. I really did. However, the horrible voice acting and pointless combat mechanics forced me to send it back to the good folks at Gamefly. Note: I played this game right after finishing Bioshock, so maybe I got spoiled by quality. 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 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
