Two Worlds II
Two Worlds: The Temptation - Upgraded from Expansion to Sequel
Written Friday, March 21, 2008 By Alan Pettit
View author's profile

According to a new press release from Reality Pump, what we thought was an upcoming expanstion (a la Shivering Isles for Oblivion), Two Worlds: The Temptation will actually be a full-fledged sequel.

The release stated some of the following:

  • "visuals that have to be seen to be believed"
  • "more intricate missions"
  • "better voice-overs and animation"
  • "improved horseback riding"
  • "completely revamped combat"
So, basically, they're going to release a real game this time, not a completely broken excuse for one. It also quoted the developer of the sequel as saying, "We've taken to heart all the comments made by gamers about Two Worlds and we're going to give them what they want with the sequel."
Let's hope he can keep his word on that.

This game sucked so much! A crappy carbon copy of Oblivion, Worst game on Xbox and 1 of the worst games I've ever played...

(NOTHING is as badas E.T. The Extra Terrestrial for the Atari 2600)

There's nothing better than failing at creating a game, and then trying again.

Well judging from the images it seems that they are trying, but I wouldn't hold my breath over it. We'll just have to wait and see if they really took to heart all those comments.

If they actually manage to fix all those problems, and build a real, fully-functional game this time around, then count me in, otherwise no thank you.

while im hoping that it will be alright, i have Two Worlds that a friend just gave to me, never played it but i am eventually going to for achievements. I really was hoping that it was just going to be a Expansion because i could get away with just charging my parents credit card, buying a sequel would not work so well though

Two Worlds was a great game. It had a couple of superficial flaws, but the core gameplay was brilliant.

I liked two worlds also.
It wasn't great and had many flaws, but if you gave it a fair chance it was quite fun.

Quote: "visuals that have to be seen to be believed"

Many of the reviews of the first game said as much.

So far it seems like this is less expansion-becomes-sequel and more expansion-priced-as-sequel.

I'm willing to give these guys another shot if they learned from their previous mistakes. This is my favorite genre of video games, so I hope it works out this time.

They obviously didn't take onboard the advice that they should give up.

* "visuals that have to be seen to be believed" Bollocks
* "more intricate missions" They couldn't really be less intricate.
* "better voice-overs and animation" Again, couldn't get much worse.
* "improved horseback riding" As above. When you need an achievement to make people even get on the horses it doesn't speak wonders for your work. Especially when the achievement doesn't work.
* "completely revamped combat" I'm looking forward to the amazing 'martial arts' that the back of the box promised yet there was none of in the actual game.

are you guys dumb? Have you seen the screenshots? The graphics look amazing, and You seem to be baseing everything that you say to bash this game, on the first game. Ya, while I agree the first was horrible, that doesnt mean that this one will be too. It looks like the devs are actually putting effort into this one. Im very surprised at how many negative comments there are.

The graphics in the screenshots do look nice. I did not like the first Two Worlds and I doubt I will like this one. Though I will definitely give it a try. Hopefully they release a decent demo.

Who cares if the voiceovers were laugh inducing, the game lagged, and there were a few glitches? I didn't even care that the graphics weren't entirely up to snuff. The game itself was incredibly addictive. Leveling up, exploring, and the unfolding of plot and side quests were just so much more rewarding in Two Worlds than in Oblivion. I am looking forward to this sequel.

Loved this game. Sure, it wasn't perfect, but it was a lot of fun. Any company can put out something shiny with no depth (i.e. Army of Two) but this was a fun game.

I never played the first one, but I also never played E.T. for the Atari 2600, and that doesn't mean I'd like either game. However, plenty of games have had crummy begginings and turned out to be gems (i.e. Dirt, PGR4). So, I'm not willing to give it a chance YET. I'm willing to give it a chance if GameInformer, X-Play, GameSpot, and of course here on X360A say it's a good game.

Hey borandi! Didn't know you came here ^_^.

"Two Worlds was a great game. It had a couple of superficial flaws, but the core gameplay was brilliant."

I agree dude, it was super fun when you removed the shadows and grass to get a constant frame rate.

I also believe that it won't be much better than the first (which is okay as the 1st was fun). The first one promised all the about things but came short. I have no doubt that this one will too. As long as it's fun like the first, I'll be happy!

"We've taken to heart all the comments made by gamers about Two Worlds and we're going to give them what they want with the sequel."

I find this very unlikely. This game was torn to pieces by almost all of the specialist press, so if they had taken the time to read all of the complaints about the game they wouldn't have made a sequel, but made a totally new game!

How about we call this one the real first title and count the first title as a beta test? though it was glitchy enough to be an alpha =P

i liked some of the ideas of the first one but i didn't like how certain monsters never respawned and some other things like the game freezing bit and the tile engine seemed to lag enough that you could get stuck running around. other than that i didn't have too much of a problem with the game. I can only hope that this new title will work better. In this industry, you only get maybe two chances(if you are lucky) to make a great game after that your name is mud.

Wow, you guys are freaking tards.

How can you base a this game off of the first one. I guess you tards dont know what a mistake is. If all you guys do to base a game off is Graphics, then you all are dumb and should stick to games like Gears of War, which has pretty graphics but sucked ass in Gameplay. Shit, go buy a PS3 if you want the best graphics, cause thats all they give a shit about. The only thing that matters in a game is Gameplay.

Pokemon had shit graphics, but the gameplay is as addictive as crack/weed. Two worlds, the only thing that suffered from it was the Damn horse, and Graphics. Controls were decent, and it had a few innovative things. The gameplay was addicting, and thats all that matters. Oblivion had shit controls/horse movement, but everyone loved it so much bec

All you dumbasses who say stuff like "Ya it had crappy graphics, the gameplay sucked, and it had a horrible framerate......but it was so addicting!" All probably play fucking homo-erotic runescape too, so STFU and go support more crap games and ruin the industry. I have an idea, go work at EA, they love morons like you.

Who the hell said you had to buy it? Shut up.

Also, if I recall, the original Hitman wasn't very good, yet the sequels came and fixed most problems. That might be the case here.

It wasn't to bad of a game if you could get past all of the flaws that it did have. Hopefully the next one is better, I might just have to get it.
