Two Worlds 2....any good?

I couldn't find anywhere to search the forums and there is no listing for the game under T-Z (what on earth did they do to these forums?) so I am posting my question here. Feel free to PM if it should be moved elsewhere.

So yeah, Two Worlds 2. Any good? Reviews are mixed and there seems to be some slight technical issues from what I hear (tearing and frame rate) Did any patches get released to fix these things? 

Is paying over $30 too much?

I absolutely loved Dragon Age (2 not so much), Oblivion and most of the other 360 RPGs. Should I look into this game or don't bother?

Forgot to add too, as soon as you start you'll want to tweak the settings a bit. Most likely when you open the menu, important info about items will be hanging off the left side and unreadable-- changing a "safe area" option will fix it. Also, change to small icons, and icons to text. It will make it a lot nicer and easier to understand.

Thanks for the heads up! Hopefully by the time I start playing this thread will still be around and I can look this up again. D&D: Daggerdale comes out tomorrow and that will suck a little time out of me. So Two Worlds will probably be next.

 

Also excited for Dungeon Siege 3 and Skyrim. Demon Forge? Not so much.

Its worth 30 bucks.  It has a steep learning curve and seems to drag in places but its a decent game.  Think of it as a third person Oblivion.  But not quite as good.

Hey thanks for all the feedback everyone. I think I will give this one a chance. The next game I really want to play isn't out till the end of June so this should fill that gap nicely. Thanks!

Like others have said and like how it is with European RPGs coming onto consoles, the ambition of the team got the better of them, putting some technical issues on the game. If you have played and enjoyed any European RPG this generation, then you should have no trouble liking this one as well. I'd say $30 is a fair price for a lengthy campaign with a fun multiplayer campaign as a distraction with friends.

I haven't got to play Two Worlds II yet since I've been depressed about some stuff and haven't felt like doing much gaming during the past six months, so I still need to get around to playing the games I got for Christmas, but from what I've read the reviews for the sequel are more favorable than the original, though still not that great.  The original game had an average rating of just 50.81% ("average") on Xbox 360, while the sequel fared slightly better with an average of 67.58% for the 360, which suggests some sort of improvement from the first.

Its a good RPG, has some good mechanics other games on the genre would be smart enough to start using. It also has a multiplayer campaign and some PvP modes, which adds even more replay value. The campaign is long, very long and it took me around 10 or so hours just to finish Chapter 1 out of 3.

It has some technical and artistic problems so if you can overcome that, there is a good RPG deep down. I would rate it 7/10 myself.

Compared to the first one, it's amazing. Compared to other games, it's pretty good.

Decent  RPG  ; unfairly criticized mostly by wanna be haters that never played the game .

Not far in yet, but so far good, if you can overlook a few technical glitches and a rather user-unfriendly control scheme and menu system (I can). It is a bit overwhelming with the options it gives you; will maybe appeal more to classic RPGers. It doesn't hold your hand, and you can easily wander into enemies early on that can wipe the floor with you. It gives you TONS of options for creating spells, and if you are a gaming klepto you'll be in heaven (I am... I'd never steal IRL but love to in games).
