So I never played the first Two Worlds, but I ended up getting TW2 yesterday. I had been reading good things about it on a couple of other forums and I found it on sale. I decided to pick it up to scratch my RPG itch.
Most accounts that I have read state that the game starts out poorly, but the game gets much better once the world opens up after a somewhat lengthy tutorial section. While I can't tell you if that's true or not quite yet, I can tell you that I have enjoyed the first hour or so that I played last night. Sure, Two Worlds 2 harbors plenty of clunkiness in many places, but I haven't encountered anything actually broken yet.
The character models aren't the greatest, the voice acting ranges from okay to terrible to hilariously campy, the story so far is rather generic, and some of the controls are slightly wonky.....but there's just something about it that let's me look past all that. Maybe I'd feel differently if I had played the first Two Worlds (ie. been less forgiving), but at least in the short time I've put into the game, I've found plenty to like about Two Worlds 2. The music is genuinely great, the environments look really good, and the spell creation system promises to be insanely deep and interesting.
So anybody else playing this? I suspect that I'm probably alone on this one.
