Story - A breathtaking journey into Antaloor's past After the downfall of Aziraal, God of Fire, the Dark Lord Gandohar has nearly achieved his objective to disrupt the balance between the elements. Dark magic surges into the land to fill the void. Recognizing the potential for complete control over the dark powers, Gandohar starts to use the power of Aziraal trap within Kỹra, the descendant of the Orphans. Despite her ancestry, Kỹra cannot endure the strain. With Antaloor already in his clutches, Gandohar concocts a new plan from his stronghold in Oswaroth. There are still those who struggle against the tyrant, hoping to shift the balance of forces in their favor. The fight for Antaloor continues...
Five years have passed since dramatic events brought the whole world to the edge of the abyss. The hero is a prisoner in the dungeons of Gandohar's castle. His hopes of saving his sister vanished with his freedom. Just as despair threatens to overcome him, hope comes from where he would have least expected. The Orcs, a race the hero had always hated, have put together a rescue squad that frees the hero from his bonds. He emerges into a land desecrated by evil. He embarks on a journey to shed light on Gandohar's dark past, hoping to discover a weak point in his enemy's defense. If he fails, he will lose his sister forever.

64 out of 100. At the first hours, I was pretty excited about the game and I couldn't stop playing it. But after a while the concept actually looked kinda empty, Two Worlds 2 isn't the kind of RPG that will keep throwing side quests at you, for some reason many monsters monsters doesn't respawn and the dialogue with NPCs should have had more options. These things made me disappointed about the game, but I still liked the fast loading screens and the magic system. Try seeing if it works for you before buying if you want to.

It is one of the games that keeps you glued to the PC for days. Although the storyline is not very complex, it is interesting and very nice to follow. The first episode of Two Worlds was not that good, which is a good sign that the developers are making progress with this series. The graphics are pretty nice and also the moves and enemies are well designed. As for the sounds, i wasn't very impressed about it, so they could have done a better job. For what is worth, it was a very pleasant experience and I am eager to see the third episode of this series.
Two Worlds II was a little too short in my opinion so maybe they can work a little more on the storyline and make it a little longer.
All in all, i think it deserves a good place in any gamer that is interested in this kind of games.
Better than the first oneKaieh1234 | April 24, 2013 | See all Kaieh1234's reviews »
Two Worlds II is an absolutely fantastic improvement over the first Two Worlds game (Which I enjoyed anyway) it has had an intense graphics overhaul, the game is stunningly beautiful, the combat has vastly improved, and its alchemy system is fairly in-depth.
Dive through dungeons, the wild, battle creatures with an array of weaponry and spells, completing quests and all the basic qualities of an action RPG. If you like Dragons Dogma, Gothic, or even the Elder Scrolls games...this one is for you.

Two Worlds II plays like an open world hack-n-slash RPG with plenty of exploration, combat, and character building while also offering a slight sandboxy feel. Side quests and optional distractions make up the bulk of the content, as the main quest is surprisingly short. Players explore, slaughter cute animals alongside strange beasts, pick up a dozen rusty swords, and level up to grow in strength. Anyone who has played the Elder Scrolls series knows what to expect on a fundamental level.
a Good RPG in their yearsrie_zel | March 9, 2013 | See all rie_zel's reviews »
Two World II was my favorite RPG games, in the "past year", Good graphic (phyix engine), small size, good music, good gameplay (you can dismantle your equip so you can upgrade another equip, has element feature), overall is good.
Some factors lacking in this game is, their own HUD, Maps, and Monster spawn (quite long for another monster spawn in one area, even it's almost no more monster spawn)
