Southpeak Interactive has finally released their so-called "Oblivion killer" Two Worlds, but will it live up to the standards the publisher set for it?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.
A Lullaby - Oh wait That's The Story: The first huge flaw (of many) in this game is the fact that the storyline is tremendously boring. As you play TW, you will become increasingly sleepy with each cutscene that passes, and in fact, I won't even go into detail about the story, because I want you to finish reading this review.In addition to that, when you listen to the in-game cutscenes, you will be shocked when you hear the voice acting. It could not have been anymore clear that they were reading off of a script.
Combat At It's Worst: The combat in this game is also unbelievably horrible. TW's combat system relies on mindlessly taping down the attack button and hack-n-slash gameplay that is amazingly difficult until you achieve around level 15-20 and onward.In addition to that fact, there is also another flaw in the combat system. The only way to avoid attacks is to time a button press in order to dodge an attack. After you dodge the incoming attack, you will then be prompted to counter. Although this counter attack system may sound interesting, it is very un-creative and bland. Another flaw that this game is that the population is so severely diminished, that you would think the world was hit with an Atomic Bomb...seven times over.
Grindin' All Night Long: Following in the footsteps of the RPG model, the only way to increase your level is to kill small animals roaming the forest. Strangely, in the forests of Two Worlds, only Wolves the size of men and Bears twice the size of men exist. You will level-up VERY slowly in TW because you will die an amazing amount of times from fighting giant Wolves all day.
Rent vs. Buy: There is only one way to say this; Two Worlds is an astoundingly bad game. A dull combat system, tireless grinding, and the horrible story/voice acting/graphics ruin this game from even being enjoyable. I would NEVER recommend this to anyone...stay away

I don't think a stronger "F" grade can be applied to this title.
