Two Worlds II ist genau das Richtige, was Rollenspielfans nach dem enttäuschenden Arcania - Gothic 4 brauchen. Bis auf kleinere negative Aspekte, die aus dem Vorgänger noch Bestand haben, wurde von Reality Pump einfach jedes einzelne Detail grandios umgesetzt. Die Spielwelt sieht einfach fantastisch aus. Die vielen Möglichkeiten das Spiel zu spielen sind unglaublich motivierend und die famose Technik setzt dem Ganzen noch die Krone auf. Mit Two Worlds 2 erwartet euch das beste Rollenspiel diesen Jahres! Also zögert nicht lang und lasst euch von Antaloor verzaubern!

Two Worlds war fast schon auf eine penetrante Art und Weise in den Medien vertreten, die nur noch von Call of Duty: Black Ops und Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood übertroffen wird. Eigentlich einleuchtend, musste es doch dafür sorgen, den Titel Two Worlds, nach dem gescheiterten Vorgänger, in neuem Glanz erstrahlen zu lassen. Und als wenn das nicht schon genüg wäre, tritt es auch noch in direkte Konkurrenz zum neuen Teil der Gothic-Saga, Arcania: Gothic 4. Wer unser Review dazu gelesen hat weiß aber, dass es sich bei Gothic 4, auch wenn es erstmals relativ bug-frei war, eher um einen kleinen Spaß für zwischendurch, oder hartgesottene Fans handelt. Diejenigen, die jedoch ein vollwertiges, hochgezüchtetes und vor allem gutes RPG spielen wollen, lassen lieber die Finger davon, denn dieses Jahr geht der RPG-Oscar ohne Zweifel an Two Worlds 2.

Reality Pump hat aus den wenigen Fehlern die in Two Worlds gemacht wurden gelernt und ein solides, extrem umfangreiches Rollenspiel auf die Beine gestellt, welches Genre-Fans unbedingt gespielt haben müssen. Gäbe es einen KonsolenFieber-Award würde dieser jetzt groß über dem Testbericht prangen!

Alles in allem ist „Two Worlds II“ jetzt nicht der ganz große Wurf und es wird sich weisen, ob vor allem die bevorstehende Konkurrenz durch „Dragon Age 2“ dem Erfolg des Spiels schaden wird. Nichtsdestotrotz handelt es sich hier um ein wirklich gelungenes Rollenspiel, das mit einer spannenden Story, jeder Menge gestalterischer Freiheiten und markanten Charakteren aufzeigt. Die ansprechende Grafik und die gute deutsche Vertonung zählen zu den weiteren Pluspunkten. In puncto Story hätte ich mir ein wenig mehr Wendungen im Plot gewünscht, vor allem, da das Fantasy-Genre ein massiv verwertetes ist und man sich hier nur mehr durch eine gute Story von der Konkurrenz deutlich abheben kann.

Two Worlds II is, in a nutshell, everything that Two Worlds could only ever have dreamed of being. It is less about running around as an errand boy and more an entertaining journey through Antaloor with side quests thrown in along the way to give you something to do on your travels. The voice acting and dialogue have enough cheese to remind you that it IS a Two Worlds game but are executed in such a way that you're not distracted by them at any point. As a lover of Two Worlds and someone who championed it when all around where throwing it on the funeral pyre, it was always at the back of my mind that Two Worlds II would be full of Molyneux hype and very little substance to back it up when it came to getting hands on... but that wasn't the case. Instead, I've been treated to over forty hours of enjoyable role playing action so far and there's clearly still so much more to go... and that's without even touching on the multiplayer aspect.

Diesen Herbst war für uns klar, dass zwei Rollenspielgiganten aufeinandertreffen werden, nachdem ArcaniA – Gothic 4 und Two Worlds II fast zeitgleich im Handel erhältlich sind, beide mit dem Fokus auf einem intensiven Rollenspielerlebnis der Extraklasse. Während Gothic 4 allerdings eher als „Rollenspiel Light“ zu bezeichnen ist, kann TW2 hier alle Register ziehen und bietet dem Abenteurer unendlich viele Möglichkeiten sich stundenlang mit der Spielewelt und den bereit gestellten, umfangreichen Features zu beschäftigen. Abwechslungsreiche Quests, eine tolle Performance, zahlreiche MP-Modi und gut gewählte Sprecher lassen keine Zweifel aufkommen, dass Two Worlds II für die nächste Zeit von uns eindeutig die Rollenspielkrone aufgesetzt bekommt und definitiv ein Spiel zum Verlieben ist!

Als Two Worlds II angekündigt wurde, war ich aufgrund des eher schwachen Vorgängers skeptisch. Als ich es das erste Mal live und in Farbe gesehen habe, war ich positiv überrascht. Jetzt, da ich endlich das fertige Spiel spiele, bin ich begeistert. Eine riesige Spielwelt, garniert mit abwechslungsreichen Aufgaben, dazu ein sauberes Kampfsystem und sogar einige kreative Ideen, wie das flexible Magiesystem, sorgen dafür, dass Two Worlds II ganz oben in der Liga der Rollenspiele mitmischt. Natürlich ist so ein Brocken nicht fehlerfrei – speziell die KI hat ihre deutlichen Macken und die Bedienungsfreundlichkeit ist auch nicht immer optimal. Insgesamt hat Reality Pump hier ein verdammt gutes Rollenspiel abgeliefert, das mit den Großen nicht nur mithalten kann, sondern diese sogar locker übertrifft. Für mich ist Two Worlds II die größte Überraschung des Spielejahres 2010 und definitiv ein Anwärter auf das beste Rollenspiel des Jahres.

Reality Pump è riuscita a mettere insieme un gioco epico, enorme, immersivo e totalmente inaspettato. Two Worlds II supera il suo predecessore in ogni campo, ed è in grado di offrire ore e ore di divertimento a puristi dei GDR e non. Non siamo tuttavia davanti a un titolo perfetto: alcune caratteristiche non limate adeguatamente e diverse imprecisioni nel sistema di controllo impediscono a quest'opera di raggiungere l'eccellenza, per quanto rimanga uno dei migliori giochi del genere, da consigliare senza remore a chiunque. Dato che il margine di miglioramento della serie è così elevato, non rimane che aspettare con ansia l'annuncio di un terzo capitolo.

An dieser Stelle könnte ich jetzt all die kleinen Makel und Unzulänglichkeiten von Two Worlds 2 aufzählen, denn andere Rollenspiele setzen nun mal Meßlatten, die Two Worlds 2 schlicht nicht erreicht: Mass Effect 2 bei Inszenierung und Bedienung, Fallout New Vegas und Risen beim Erkundungstrieb, Dragon Age bei taktischen Kämpfen, The Witcher beim Gehalt der Story und der Konsequenz von Entscheidungen. Aber habe ich Two Worlds 2 deswegen weniger gern gespielt? Nein. Denn für mich zählen in einem Rollenspiel vor allem die Geschichte(n) und die Charakterentwicklung. Und in diesen beiden Kerndisziplinen punktet Two Worlds 2. Mit Freude erinnere ich mich an all die spannenden, skurrilen oder witzigen Aufgaben und Dialoge. Dabei hatte ich sowohl als Nahkämpfer wie auch als Magier viel Spaß. Wer Macken verzeihen kann, darf zugreifen.

So did Reality Pump manage to overcome the stigma the original Two Worlds created? Has the been franchise redeemed? In my opinion, it certainly has. Sure, Two Worlds II has plenty of room for improvement. The storyline could be a bit more interesting and the visuals need an overhaul. A morality system would be a welcomed sight in Two Worlds III. But again, the level of depth throughout and the solid combat options go a long way to offsetting those issues. It may not replace that copy of Dragon Age as your top high-fantasy RPG, but it has no problems sitting on the shelf next to it. Two Worlds II is so big, you almost need ‘two worlds’ to hold all its contents. And for RPG fans, that is what matters most.

Two Worlds II es un completísimo RPG que mejora sustancialmente al original y nos envuelve en un mundo de fantasía del que no querremos escapar. Sus atractivos e inmensos entornos, su jugabilidad directa y sencilla, así como la gran cantidad de cosas que podemos realizar en el universo de Antaloor son algunas de las grandes virtudes de una aventura que está dirigida tanto a los más veteranos del género como a los que se quieran iniciar en el mismo. El novedoso sistema de hechizos, pócimas, forjas y demás podrá confundirnos e incluso frustrarnos al principio, pero con la práctica lo acabaremos dominando a la perfección y disfrutaremos de una gran cantidad de invenciones propias. El único lastre del juego se encuentra en los frecuentes tirones y bajadas de frames del motor gráfico, así como en algunos bugs que, aun sin afectar al apartado jugable, enturbian la gran experiencia del título.

TW2 still has plenty of room to grow. You can’t fight on horseback, for instance. Many skills are unbalanced—some are of dubious utility while others, such as Alchemy, feel half-baked. The single-player story gets increasingly linear for little payoff; we still get a sizable map out of the deal, but later areas aren’t as fleshed-out since the plot isn’t compelling enough to justify limiting open-world exploration. Multi­player is improved, but is disappointingly mission-based instead of allowing co-op wandering. Yet it is such a huge improvement over its dismal predecessor that it’s oh-so-close to being an outstanding RPG. Its design just needs some rationalization and focus to achieve something great.

Het abrupte einde en de ontbrekende content zijn een bittere pil om te slikken. Wie zich daarover kan zetten, zal in Two Worlds II echter een meeslepend en verslavend avontuur vinden.

To finish off, TW2 was okay. It was good fun, it had its problems, but as a fan of the likes of Oblivion I enjoyed it. I’d say, try it out as an interim between Skyrim and Witcher 2. The multiplayer eventually worked well and was great fun. I didn’t have a problem with TW2, it won’t go down in history as the greatest RPG ever, but it was a good play all the same.

Two Worlds II surprised us to such a degree that we found ourselves thinking about the clever concepts well after play. With plenty to see and do, not to mention some great multiplayer offerings, this is a sequel worth checking out.

What I’d love to see in the coming months from Reality Pump is a renewed focus on interface and on making their complicated RPG systems more intuitive. These guys are hard at work on bringing more love to the game - they’re not all rushing off to make a sequel immediately. Thing is, I don’t think the issue with Two Worlds II right now has anything to do with a lack of content - what they should be focusing on is making that content more accessible. Still, this is a damn fun title if you’re interested in a deep action-RPG, especially if you expected very little after the wildly strange, often severely disappointing first game. And if you can get past the rough parts, it’s exciting and addictive in all the ways you probably expect out of a good European RPG.

Two Worlds II requires patience and forgiveness, and many won't give it the chance it deserves. One cannot deny the lack of polish and the archaic, old fashioned interface and features, yet one also must acknowledge the powerful pull that this game has. There's an appeal to this game that far outshines the ancient husk that it is presented in -- a truly rewarding, rich and amusing experience that takes hold of a player and never lets go until it's over. I hated my first hour or so of Two Worlds II. I believed I was in for a boring, dreary, aggravating eighty hours of wasted life that I'd never be able to get back. I was wrong. Two Worlds II is the perfect gaming equivalent to a diamond in the rough. It's ugly, it's coarse, and it's got one foot in the past, but it's just too damn lovable to be thrown into the trash. Two Worlds II is better than Two Worlds. By several thousand miles.

Two Worlds II is a solid open world RPG that has enough good going for it to overshadow its issues. Had it a little more time in development for polish and tweaks, it could have been outstanding, but as it stands I think it's still a great game that I'm happy to recommend.

WindowsHot Blooded Gaming
Overall, Two Worlds II is a pretty solid game that is definitely worth your time. It’s a game that any RPG fan can appreciate, but even those who aren’t so fond of RPGs can pick it up, play it, and above all else — enjoy it. While it may not have the greatest story known to mankind, it more than makes up for it in everything else that it has to offer. From the wealth of quests and content, to online multiplayer, Two Worlds II brings it all and doesn’t either disappoint, nor does it squander its second chance.

Tirando le somme, se le alternative, anche di valore, non mancano di certo, non si può negare che farsi scappare questo piccolo gioiello ruolistico potrebbe essere uno dei peccati che difficilmente la vostra coscienza potrà sopportare. Profondità, un multiplayer per certi versi davvero innovativo e un numero esorbitante di cose da fare, promettono di rendere i vostri pomeriggi realmente impegnati, in attesa di un nuovo Elder Scroll per dire definitivamente addio alla vostra vita sociale. Peccato unicamente per una traduzione non certo eccelsa e per alcuni problemi tecnici che sembrano affliggere in maniera costante le creature di Reality Pump; niente che comunque una buona patch non possa ovviare in tempi ragionevolmente brevi.

Two Worlds II is misschien niet het meest progressieve rollenspel van dit najaar, maar dat maakt helemaal niets uit. Door zich te richten op de elementen die ertoe doen (vechtsysteem, spelwereld, aanpassingsmogelijkheden), is Reality Pump erin geslaagd om met de top van het genre mee te komen.

La secuela de Two Worlds hace los deberes y mejora la fórmula de su predecesor. Una campaña más interesante y un multijugador son las principales virtudes que compensan un sistema de combate excesivamente simple y unos interfaces innecesariamente complejos. Una opción muy interesante para los fans del rol.

Two Worlds 2 is an improvement, but not a complete success. It still has many areas that need a lot of work, but if you can get over those parts then you'll have a good time exploring the rich, vibrant game world. Reality Pump has gone a long way since Two Worlds 1, and they've got a long way to go still. But Two Worlds 2 is a definite step in the right direction. Let's just hope that the original Two Worlds didn't damage the series' reputation to the point that people are wary to try Two Worlds 2.

Like other games that could fit under the B-game label, not everyone will embrace the elements I enjoyed in Two Worlds II. If you're looking for a lengthy and humorous (if somewhat unpolished) hack-and-slash RPG to tide you over while you wait for Dragon Age II or The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it's worth giving Reality Pump a second chance.

Nos encontramos ante un juego que premia a los que deciden darle una oportunidad y superar la barrera que supone un inicio flojo. Los que lo consigan se encontrarán con un rol occidental clásico muy decente, repleto de opciones y con una cantidad de horas por ofrecer que hoy en día ya no se estila. A ello hay que sumarle un apartado técnico extraordinario que transmite buenas sensaciones y una ambientación original, que consigue huir a ratos de la habitual del medio evo europeo. Aunque los defectos de forma lastren su nota final, quien decida darle una oportunidad es difícil que se arrepienta.

As a whole, I think Two Worlds II is definitely worth checking out. It can be a little rough around the edges at times, but there's so much stuff to check out and do, the majority of which is actually fun and engaging, that it's hard to deny there's a whole lot of value packed into this particular title. If you've been on the fence about picking it up, I'd definitely suggest a rental, as it certainly won't appeal to all RPG fans out there, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

WindowsGameSpot
Two Worlds II delivers where it counts most. The spellcrafting, potion-making, and equipment upgrade systems offer plenty of depth, yet aren't so convoluted as to make their workings a mystery. Great quests and hidden caches of treasure make this an inviting world to explore, and the ease of travel ensures that exploration is never a frustration. Great writing and characterizations could have taken Two Worlds II to the next level, but even without them, there is enough combat and mission variety to keep you busy and happy for dozens of hours. If you long for a bit of old-world flavor, you'd do best to overlook the ragged edges and let Antaloor work its magic on you.

Two Worlds II offers fans enough to keep them busy for hours. The many missions, areas, enemies or spells that can be created are responsible for this. Each environment feels fresh and new so that you'll have no problem wanting to check it out. The biggest issue of the original has been fixed but there are some flaws that do remain and sting you in the eye, preventing us from giving a higher score. Small tip; gamers with all formats available should go for the PC version as the quality there is definitely a bit higher.

Two Worlds II is still nowhere near the level that Oblivion was. Still, it offers numerous missions to go through, and will keep action-RPG fans busy for awhile. The game vastly improves on the original, and even shows glimmers of being a truly great game. Hopefully, the developers can fix the slowdown issue via updates to make it better.

WindowsCheat Happens
Two Worlds II takes a number of chances that pay off throughout gameplay - if you can find them. Sadly, the entire game is hampered by terrible user interface that manages to confuse the player rather than aid them. Fans of the original Two Worlds are sure to find much to love here, and those unfamiliar with it may find the alchemy system a worthwhile experience. Two Worlds II simultaneously tops its predecessor but falls short of just what it could be.

Xbox 360GamingBolt
Bottom line is that this game is kind of like Oblivion with better graphics here and there. Much like Oblivion the controls have similarities which I personally have a problem with but got past them and enjoyed the game, more so online than anywhere else. This game literally looks to rival Oblivion IV: Elder Scrolls and does a good job of it in some aspects while it does not in other aspects such as the storyline. But if you have played Oblivion that you will enjoy this but if you haven’t and enjoy open world RPG’s odds are this is a game you will still enjoy. Two Worlds II offers so many places, people, quests to endeavor into as well as many choices in which to take your character as far as attributes, skills, appearance and powers, applying to online and offline making Two Worlds II a good RPG.

Two Worlds II is incredibly better than its predecessor. The RPG system is good enough to encourage you to level up. It’s flexible to let you play however you wish. The issue is that everything is merely competent. In the face of that, the game still remains fun. The combat is fluid and engaging. It’s definitely worth a look if you’re a fan of the genre but don’t expect to be blown away.

I’m still not quite ready to convert to RPG-ism just yet, but Two Worlds II is a welcome relief from the pain I put up with in the original. While it lacks polish in certain areas and could’ve used a more balanced lobby system for online play, the gameplay has plenty to offer, and the presentation is better than most sub-standard role-playing affairs. Tuck away the painful memories of the first game and try out this one. You’ll feel some validation…even if it takes a little while to get there.

Two Worlds II suffers from a handful of the same problems as the original, but the improved graphics engine and deeper gameplay are positive steps forward for the series. However, Southpeak hasn’t been able to keep up with the competition in terms of other features, a continual morality system for instance. Two Worlds II has little chance of succeeding as it’s barely up to par for a game released two years earlier in the Xbox 360‘s lifecycle. Add in the complete lack of a truly moving narrative and we have a game that’s likely destined for the bargain bin within weeks rather than months due to the bad rep of the original. If you are willing to look past the faults of the game and enjoy spending your time crafting / questing, then Two Worlds II can manage to eat up 30 hours of your RPG gaming time; vastly more if you are a side quest fiend (60 hours). But if your gaming budget is the slightest bit tight, you are likely much better off waiting for Dragon Age II and renting Two Worlds II.

Two Worlds 2 does what few sequels ever do: make us forget about its predecessor. Despite the issues, enough worked to keep grinding to the next dungeon and forgive the incredibly lackluster ending. This RPG appeals mostly to trigger-happy, action-oriented adventurers who want to mash enemies and don't care about the story, but it also has enough to draw in those who want to do their own share of exploring. It's not a perfect sequel, but for those who remember the original Two Worlds, it's an adventure that is finally worth most of its weight in loot.

There is real innovation here, and there are some ballsy forays into game-styles that are way outside the standard tick-list of features for the genre, both online and off. There's also a great deal of absorbing content to enjoy, not to mention consistent, meaningful progression, creative quests, and empowering customisation systems that let you craft your own rewards form a plethora of resources. If you can live with the lo-fi elements, there's an awful lot to enjoy. I sincerely hope it does well enough to fund a bigger-budget sequel. Because at this rate of improvement, Reality Pump could be snapping at the heels of the big RPG developers next time.

Two Worlds 2 is vermakelijk, maar niet de RPG-topper die we gehoopt hadden. De omgevingen zijn zeker mooi en het RPG-systeem werkt naar behoren, maar de andere elementen zijn matig te noemen. Zo zijn de (verdere) graphics niet indrukwekkend, zijn de gesproken teksten erg zwak en ook is het combat-systeem zeker niet perfect. De vele bugs doen daarbij echt afbreuk aan de spelervaring. We konden daarbij jammer genoeg het online element niet testen, simpelweg omdat we geen andere spelers konden vinden. Al met al is Two Worlds 2 een aardige RPG, die duidelijk afwerking mist.

Une chose est sûre : Two Worlds II va diviser les adeptes de jeux de rôle autant qu'avait pu le faire son prédécesseur. Certains loueront son système de jeu intéressant et extrêmement complet et savoureront la délicieuse montée en puissance arrachée au prix d'un départ douloureux. Les autres pointeront sa jouabilité laborieuse, sa surface de jeu somme toute réduite pour un open world et ses doublages en français monstrueusement mauvais. De notre point de vue, Two Worlds II reste un titre parfaitement recommandable à condition ne pas l'acheter à l'aveugle et d'être prêt à faire abstraction de tous les petits défauts susceptibles de ruiner l'expérience du joueur non averti.

Avouons-le, il est bien difficile de s'enthousiasmer pour Two Worlds II après avoir parcouru de long en large Divinity II, Fallout : New Vegas et Risen. La volonté de bien faire est manifeste, mais les écueils sont trop nombreux pour susciter une totale adhésion. A commencer par ces insupportables doublages français qui viennent franchement gâcher l'aventure ! La localisation n'est pas la seule fautive puisque le scénario, le monde à parcourir, l'IA et certaines quêtes manquent de consistance. Two Worlds II mérite en revanche notre respect en ce qui concerne la présence de véritables modes multijoueurs (clairement une exception en matière de jeux de rôle) et la bonne réalisation de certaines mécaniques de jeu.

El objetivo del estudio polaco Reality Pump con Two Worlds II era mejorar en gran medida lo visto en la primera entrega y lo han conseguido. Es cierto que hay que dedicarle horas y paciencia para que el juego empiece a abrirse tanto en el aspecto argumental como en el jugable, pero una vez superado esto nos encontramos ante un juego de rol capaz de sumergirnos en su historia y su mundo. Se resiente un poco de una interfaz muy confusa, pero al mismo tiempo goza de un aspecto visual notable y un diseño artístico y general que aunque no son la panacea sí que hacen bien su trabajo. Nos encontramos, en definitiva, ante una clara apuesta para todo seguidor del género que quiera su ración de rol mezclado con acción para PC, pero también ante un mundo ciertamente hostil para los jugadores menos avezados en el género.

Two Worlds II is an interesting beast. As a lower budget, quirkier version of Oblivion, the game does hold its own, and were it left at that its flaws would be much more understandable, possibly even virtuous in a strange way. Everyone loves the underdog, and people love it when enthusiasm outshines quality. Unfortunately, in aiming to dethrone Oblivion, Reality Pump have shot themselves in the foot. Every little quirk in the game becomes a major flaw highlighting the fact that it just isn’t as good as Bethesda’s effort. By turns engrossing and frustrating, the game will appeal much more to those willing to look beyond the obvious flaws and those who enjoy B-movies because of their charm. For everyone else, Two Worlds II will comfortably fill the RPG gap until Dragon Age II, providing plenty of hours of saving damsels, assisting smiths and slaying interesting beasts.

I wasn't kidding when I said Two Worlds 2 was maddeningly clunky but, if you're willing to put up with a few hassles and don't mind the odd difficulty spike, there's a lot here for an RPG fan to fall in love with. In some ways Two Worlds 2 is the antithesis of Dragon Age 2. BioWare's title focuses on characters, drama, and accessibility; Two Worlds 2 has little of the sort, instead making you work for your fun. However, your rewarded with unparalleled customisation and a huge degree of freedom. I daresay that anyone who enjoys less linear, more 'hardcore', RPGs like Divinity 2 or Oblivion will cherish what Two World 2 offers. That is, if they can put up with its problems.

Two Worlds II isn't quite unplayable, however, and I admit it might actually work on some levels for those who like open world and hack-n-slash RPGs. Character progression and management along with the subpar, but occasionally enjoyable combat may be enough to hook players not concerned with seeking meaningful experiences in their hobbies. Multiplayer modes might also entice the easily-amused. Even those vulnerable to the cheap addictive tactics employed by games like Two Worlds II should only try it after exhausting the entire catalog of similar RPGs from the past five years, for that's how old Two Worlds II feels. Most of us, however, will find Two Worlds II boring, mindless, and dull, requiring (and consisting of) such little thought that it should have a warning label. The only novel aspect of Two Worlds II is its utter disregard for the powers of human imagination. I expected some stupid fun when I picked up Two Worlds II, but instead I just got some stupid.

Après un début d'aventure calamiteux et des limites qui sautent tout de suite aux yeux (doublages catastrophiques, effet de flou inutile, animations robotiques, etc.), Two Worlds II finit par livrer ses charmes aux joueurs les plus persévérants. Les graphismes plutôt soignés, l'exploration d'environnements différents, le multi-joueurs anecdotique mais présent, ainsi que le choix de l'approche du danger en fonction de la classe sélectionnée : tous ces facteurs permettent de prendre un réel plaisir de jeu à condition de donner sa chance au titre. Soyons clair, Two Worlds II mérite qu'on s'y intéresse, mais ses défauts et autres imperfections en désarçonneront plus d'un. Si possible, essayez le soft avant de craquer. Ne venez pas dire que l'on ne vous aura pas prévenu !

Two Worlds II réussit. Et cela que ce soit au regard du nouveau moteur de Reality Pump qui livre des paysages aussi jolis que divers, au regard de son gameplay qui fourmille de possibilités, ou encore au regard de l'ambiance assez exceptionnelle qui s'en dégage. Mais finalement Two Worlds II échoue. Et il est presque triste de voir qu'un jeu avec un tel potentiel trébuche finalement dans les ornières béantes, mais qu'il faut absolument éviter : maniabilité ratée, interface disgracieuse et inadaptée au support, quêtes annexes à l'intérêt limité et scénario convenu. En résulte un titre ambivalent qui pourra enchanter totalement son homme une trentaine de minutes et le révulser la trentaine suivante, pour l'enchanter à nouveau par la suite. Mais étrangement, on en retient principalement les bons souvenirs, et ce malgré une fin expédiée et presque révoltante.

Two Worlds II, for all its inadequacies and flaws, is still an enjoyable game. It gets by with its various magic and crafting systems, subtlety and style. While the UI and narrative of the game caused me much frustration and disappointment I would still give the game a decent recommendation. Two Worlds II is flawed but none the less an interesting game. So with that and bearing in mind that a 5/10 is an average game and not 7/10 like most other sources on the internet. I would give Two Worlds II 6/10.

Xbox 360We Got This Covered
All in all, Two Worlds II is definitely an improvement on its predecessor but it’s still not perfect. There are some glaring gameplay and technical issues and it’s fairly unpolished, as I ran across numerous bugs (although none were game-breaking). However if you can get past the wonky blocking, unintuitive menus and spell creation, a general lack of polish, and a few other annoying nuances, you actually have at its core a fun, enjoyable and lengthy RPG with deep customization mechanics and an absolutely huge world to explore. It’s frustrating that the game does so many things right yet is still pretty rough around its edges but I have to give it credit for improving on its predecessor. Two Worlds II definitely still has a long way to go before joining the upper echelon of Dragon Age and The Elder Scrolls but I think most RPG fans will find something they enjoy about this title if you can look past its shortcomings.

But, despite all of it’s faults, I found myself seriously getting into the Two Worlds II story, even though I had almost forgotten the main objective of the game. The quests are interesting enough to keep you playing long after you decide you’re going to quit. The PC version no doubt looks and plays much smoother than the PS3 version (which I hope to verify one day), but the game looks and plays well enough to keep you engaged, despite its marathon length (it took me slightly more than 20 hours to finish just the first of its four chapters). Have some patience, forgive its technical faults, and you’ll see it as I did—2011′s first guilty pleasure.

The inventive spell system and multiplayer element don’t make Two Worlds II good, unfortunately. They provide good points for brave RPG fans to find some purchase and explore the game, though. Two Worlds II has a lot of potential, but ultimately, it can’t fulfill the lofty ambitions that Reality Pump set for it and comes up shorter than it probably would have for the trouble.

Tous les éléments sont là, et pourtant la sauce ne prend jamais vraiment en solo, la faute à un univers bien trop impersonnel, des quêtes qui sont dans leur immense majorité vues et revues, des personnages tout sauf attachants, et une VF absolument catastrophique à ranger au rayon "nanars du jeu vidéo", qui ruine tous les maigres efforts faits sur l'écriture. Reste que sur le terrain du contenu le package est plutôt irréprochable, avec un contenu solo plus que décent, un mode multijoueur aussi surprenant que réussi, et un bilan technique très positif puisque Two Worlds II est à la fois beau (en ce qui concerne les décors, du moins), fluide, et stable. Two Worlds II est en quelque sorte l'élève studieux et appliqué qui a bien fait ses devoirs, mais de la part de qui il ne faut surtout pas attendre la moindre créativité ou le plus petit grain de folie. Reste le multi, qui pourrait être la seule et vraie raison d'investir dans ce RPG au solo terne et anonyme.

Ответ на сей вопрос, полагаю, ясен. Облагороженная картинка, на удивление стабильный код и приятный саундтрек — единственное, в чем преуспела Reality Pump. Воз со всем остальным, к сожалению, так и не тронулся с места.

I personally would wait for this one to hit bargain bins. I don’t think its honestly worth 50 bucks at this stage. If the multi player was better, and didn’t sock you into a prequel style set of missions, it might be worth 30. Like it is now, My advice would be to wait for this one to hit around 25 or so. To me, that seems like a good deal as far as content and gameplay is concerned. It bothers me that game companies are really ignoring co-op gameplay. Two Worlds 2 settles for a series of missions that play in the same areas, but don’t ever address the main story, and that is a cop out in my opinion. Reality Pump has come far from the first game, but shows in this one they still have miles to go before they reach a place where the quality has reached the hype.

Though there’s a lot to love and a rich world to invest yourself in, it’ll require more than a little forgiving on your part. Unfortunately, TWII would have benefited hugely from a few more months of developing, and it might still just be a few updates away from becoming something worthy of a better score. Until then, we suspect Two Worlds will create two of its own, one of lovers and one of haters.

Je ne m’étais rarement autant ennuyé sur un jeu de rôle que sur Two Worlds 2. Et pourtant, je ne suis pas le plus exigent des joueurs. Si vous cherchez un bon RPG sur PC, lorgnez plutôt du côté de Fallout New Vegas, ou Divinity II si vous voulez absolument du médiéval-fantastique.
