Solid Game! Take "critics" with a grain of salt
by uhlek23 on July 17, 2008
Pros: Very fun interface, low learning curve, great graphics, innovative in small ways.
Cons: Alot like Oblivion (but what's so bad about being similar to such a great game?), No character generation in single-player, but in co-op multiplay you can, but the over-arching story is disabled.
Summary: Haven't been playing it that long, but I am sooo glad I didn't believe the hype against this game. It is visually gorgeous, and in many ways seems ...
Summary: Haven't been playing it that long, but I am sooo glad I didn't believe the hype against this game. It is visually gorgeous, and in many ways seems like an undiscovered country in-between Oblivion and Diablo II -- both games I loved. The treasure system is really interesting, with a massive variety of every type of item or armors, and interesting ways using loot not elsewhere seen in the genre. (Combining similar weapons to make better weapons in addition to more common enchanting with gems and items) -- A spell system where multiple spells enhance the spell (not new) but are also modified by booster cards that edit effects (more novel)... Fighting from a mount, which is seldom seen in this type of game is fully implemented, and the game is just plain FUN. This is not as easy to say about some games. It think it's worth buying.The co-op mode, despite only being able to do the quests in world without the over-arching story arc sounds like a mark against it -- but many games of it's class don't even offer ANY type of this feature so I'll count it as a plus. This game is WORTH BUYING! -- and that is from somebody very frugal about software purchases.
I Love Two Worlds Game!
by Tom Torpedo on September 14, 2007
Pros: Really cool visuals such as monsters, terrain, buildings, people, etc. Nice sounds & awesome armor and weapons with upgrades. Many missions with treasures and great magic special effects.
Cons: The dialog could have more variety, more clothing modesty for the female Kira character, angelic (good) spirits should be part of the Air magic world, the horse riding ability needs help.
Summary: This is the first RPG I've played and I love it. The character can be played as an upright guy or as a scoundrel. The game has Gorgeous landscape, ...
Summary: This is the first RPG I've played and I love it. The character can be played as an upright guy or as a scoundrel. The game has Gorgeous landscape, buildings, caves, water, flora and fauna. Lots of bad guys and monsters to kill and loot to claim! The character's abilities noticeably get better (such as using weapons or magic) as he upgrades his skills.
I found the language G rated as no naughty words are used (how refreshing!), and the modesty of dress for characters I would rate as G except for Kira (fortunately, she appears only a few times).
I've had this game a week and I found myself playing 5-6 hours in a snap, going to bed way after midnight. It was so fun and engaging with new adventures everywhere! The visuals are great with stars filling a moonlit night sky. Different types of bad guys and creatures need to be taken down with different types of weapons which adds to the game.
The armor and weapons you can change and upgrade as money or chance loot allows and they do look super cool. I wish however, one could chose whatever color one wanted for one’s own armor - but the set colors are OK. I love the shimmering white light on my sword when I add magic power to it. It can shimmer in white, blue, green or red depending to the type of magic you use.
At times I just stop and look at the scenery from a mountain top – truly beautiful!
The missions are many and at times a bit confusing, but so is real life. I like the way people react to you. A much larger repertoire of dialogue is needed. Also the game ought to add children and women with babies and sounds that go along with kids and parents even as a background sound which would be a nice added touch in the larger towns, villages and castles.
Thanks South Peaks for Two Worlds! Aside from Kira’s immodesty and no angelic spirits, I’m looking forward to having many adventures in this terrific game and hope for future expansion packs and add ons!

Pile up your weapons like never before!
by victimhere on June 4, 2007
Pros: Great graphics, simple gameplay
Cons: No storyline to talk about, boring!

Summary: After playing Oblivion and Gothic, Two World feels very familiar. It looks like the developers took the main drivers like hack & slash, magic, treasures and weaponry and just increased the amount of everything, at the same time reducing storyline to the point where you ask yourself what the hack…
Why not, though, since the whole world seems to love senseless hacking and slashing, especially without any major resistance. Since the purpose of the game is clear and simple, it doesn’t really make any difference at all when all the characters fall into walls and rocks or even right into the floor, whenever they have a chance, because who cares?
Missions are not really necessary to hack away, but one problem becomes evident already after a few hours of play, which develops into THE number one challenge in the game, which is inventory management. Two Towers satisfies even the biggest appetite for weapons and magic items with the largest collection of items I have ever seen in any game ever. And you get so much of this stuff, that you need to actually pile it. Piling is a new feature of this game and it will add up the abilities of weapons to a point where a regular bow becomes a super-powered killing tool, wiping out entire groups of your fiercest enemies (or even your best friends) with a single click of your mouse.
Basically, at a certain point, the entire purpose of the game becomes wiping out all NPCs and collecting everything in order to find out if you can reach nuclear powers with a sword.
While it is true that you have a sister to rescue and a few relics to collect (which are conveniently located in the major cities) there isn’t really any urgency in doing that. After all, all the happy slashing stops by doing that, so why bother!
I’m always totally stunned at the amount of wasted talent in games like Two Worlds. The graphics are state of the art and with just a little brain grease this could have been developed into a marvelous game. Alas, it turned out a straight hack & slash and pile game feeding the old prejudice that computer gaming is a complete waste of time.

- Description: A fragile peace between the civilized races and the hordes is at stake. When the dwarven mining expedition discovered an ancient temple dedicated to an unnamed deity - all of the world's most powerful factions saw it as a possible clue to the place of Azriaal's burial ground. A silent war has now begun and it will soon ignite the fires that will lead to the holy crusade of the Orcs. However, the real danger lies somewhere else. A powerful force churns silently - weaving a secret plot of fear and destruction. In the end one of the Two Worlds will remain. It is up to you to save the world... or destroy it! "Two Worlds" combines the extremely dynamic and sophisticated combat system with the meaning and freedom of exploration exceeding the accomplishments of other games of the genre. To attract the mass audience, the complexity of the game will be achieved mainly through a variety of meaningful choices while the User Interface will be simplified. The combat system is easy to handle and the number of possible choices encourage experimenting with different styles and skills. Great visuals and dynamic choreography ensures the most exciting experience. The game promotes the ability to freely roam and explore the game world. Players will find their own way to beat challenges, solve problems and complete quests and will also be rewarded by different factions accordingly for the results of their actions. Before you solve the main quest, you will certainly experience the most memorable journey of your life. It is very important that players are not limited to working for only one faction at on time. They are free to experiment with different organizations and benefit from all of them. All characters can learn any skill. There is also a challenge for many guilds to keep their knowledge a secret. Players will have to earn their respect and trust to lay hands on the most powerful of skills.
