So much potential

This game had the makings to be incredible. I am a big fan of the open battle system in games like this, Dragon Age, Oblivion, etc. The fact that you could switch character classes mid-battle was incredible. The spell system was near infinite as far as combinations and effects. The armor and forge system was innovative and refreshing. The fact that you could break down existing weapons and armor to improve others was a great aspect of the game.

With all of this going for the game how could they possibly mess it up? Well let me tell you: The actual gameplay was simple enough and very similar to games of its kind. The downfall was that there never seemed to be any power behind the hits, and the actually chance of you hitting an opponent in melee combat seemed sporadic at best. No matter how leveld up the character was it seemed that one random shot would kill the character instantly whichwas incredibly frustrating. The graphics of the game reminded me of oblivion, which is not bad, for a game that is six years old. The voice acting and the dubbing was absolutely horrible.

In the end, Two Worlds 2 had great potential, but fell very short of being even a mediocre game. Rent it if you're waiting for Skyrim and Dragon Age 2 if you have absolutely nothing else to help you pass the time.

Honestly, I can't give a full review of this game because I could only stand it for a couple of hours but here's my experience anyway.

As far as rpg's go it would have to rate dead last for me. Dungeon Siege 1 or Neverwinter Nights was even better and of course TW2 was released this year!

The game looked as if it was released in the early 00's and the voice acting was horrible and the character gestures were just the same 4-5 things over and over. Characters would shoulder shrug or point with aggression when there was totally no need for it. Creativity was tossed out the window. Wait, they would've had to have the creativity to toss in the first place. Eh!

Then there's all of the cut-scenes omg! I think in the first 45 minutes of the game there is like 10 cutting in action to speak scenes. They're not actual cut scenes. One second you're told to "hurry up, no time for chat" and the next it cuts the running off to waste time and chat for 3 minutes.

Overall, if you're really, really, really bored and have no other choices and you're a masochist then THIS GAME IS FOR YOU! If you're none of the prior then save the pain and run from TW2!
