I have tried to get into this game. I enjoyed the first one, mainly because I liked the storyline. Combat was fun, as well. The only thing that got to me in Two Worlds is the voice acting, which ended up being more comical than deal breaking.
I wasn't eager to get Two Worlds II but I ended up getting it during the Christmas Sales not this past Christmas but the Christmas before. Since then I have given it several tries, as a friend of mine has tried to convince me that it's worth getting through the first part of the game.
1. Great graphics... I have to give them that. The scenes are gorgeous and they did a superb job with the modeling (though my guy looked like he was supposed to have gray spots in his hair, but it ended up looking like he had some kind of bugs attached to his scalp). Armor modeling was awesome. Their graphics team needs some kudos for their work.
2. Uh... "Better" voice acting?
3. Story line seems interesting.
The COMBAT! Ugh! Way too clunky. No skill taken into account... it's click as fast as you can with the left mouse button and "hope" you hit them. The AI is random so sometimes they run away. You attack a boar and a gang of OSTRICH attack you. WTF? Really? You're surrounded by beasts and you still can't even hit one, even though you're aiming right at it. And don't even try to use a bow! The physics & targeting system is $#^@ >.< Sneak attack is overpowered as h.e.double.hockeysticks, if you get lucky and are allowed to use it (seems you can only use it against humanoids) or are even ABLE to use it. You can't have any weapons drawn to sneak because they mapped block to the same key as sneak, which is also the same key for run. So you are blocking when you want to run, running when you mean to sneak... you get the picture.
Okay... my point... don't get it. Even if it is on sale. You'll hate yourself because most likely it's going to be chosing between another game that is on sale. Go with the other one. I'm done trying. Uninstalling forever. Wish I could just give this dang game away.
