I went into this game without playing its predecessor but I heard the first two worlds was a disaster. The hype for this game was annoying at best; I don't remember a day without seeing comments like "OMG TWO WORLDS TOO!" I'm just going to point out some things that come to mind about my experience playing two worlds.
Story: There's essentially no story, and it doesn't feel like your doing anything to impact the story on your quest. The plot twist which the average person would suspect while playing through the game was boring. The "end" of the game was a total cliffhanger and it didn't feel like the adventure was finished.
Voice-acting: My first play through the game I made myself listen to the mediocre voice-acting, while some of the characters were alright others were absolutely dreadful. To add on top of that the conversations are incredibly long and dull; I found myself skipping through them about halfway through the game.
Graphics: I don't really have an eye for graphics but overall the game looks very nice. The character models however were the most disappointing part of the graphics, they didn't feel finished.
Pointless One Hour Tutorial: Don't get me started...
Combat: I played through the game the first time as a dual-wielding warrior type player, the combat was incredibly repetitive (medium difficultly) without any challenge. I suspect Archery would be just as repetitive. The magic was incredibly overpowered, I crushed virtually everything my second play through (hard difficulty.)
The Main Island: Is a joke. There's absolutely nothing there aside from the swamp, castle, and occasional cluster of monsters. I was incredibly disappointed after finally exploring it all because it seemed like it wasn't entirely finished (roads leading into cliff sides, abandoned towns.)
Two Worlds Two was a big let down, I hope you didnt get suckered into buying it, I would only recommend renting this if your a hardcore RPG fan. I gave it a five, thats being generous.

Positives: the graphics are certainly a kick up... I really enjoyed watching some of the scenery move on screen. Crafting your own spells was pretty cool and I really liked how you were able to preset 3 different armor/weapon layouts that you could switch to easily. negatives: the game play was just unforgivable and frustrating... played through maybe three hours and couldn't take it anymore. The dialog was so atrocious and voice acted by emotionless ninnies that it is actually rather funny to listen to.
Well this game is ina feild like Zelda. You know the basic repeatedly hit a button to fight same with spells. Now you do have a binary option to add cool stuff or purchase on line but come on this platform is older than i am. The graphics are absolutly amazing from the very start. I mean i have a big screen 67 inch with 180i and out and this thing is great but only on graphics. The rest of the game truly suffers from lack of well plain old hard work on gamming tactics. They should have spent about a 70/30 on graphics and gamming experince. They spent 5 percent. The whole thing was a lateral move from the first game there was absolutly no step up except for the graphics. Now if the game had played anything and i mean anything like the intro this would have been an absolutly amazing game. I mean the only reason i could see to stick to a dead platform is to snag old school gamers who have yet to evolve to the 21 st century and are still hung on Atari. This got a sscrapping by 2 out of 10 from me due to well just plain lazy put togetjer and no forethought into the next evolutionary later for platforms. For heavens sake they can make a whole movie with no actors just voices and yet they couldn't produce a game with a better playing experience than Zelda. I may be Mass Effect 2 and Dead space 2 spoiled but please these would even make the intro. Try again only worth renting.
