Two Worlds II returns players to fantasy world Antaloor, in a role playing game that promises a bigger and better experience than the original title.
For RPG fans, Two Worlds II looks as if it will be an interesting addition to the genre. The storyline is hardly original, concerning a land desecrated by the Dark Lord Gandohar, and the hero who sets out to defeat him. The fantasy world of Antaloor is similarly cliched, full of Orcs, magic, dungeons and the rest. Visually Two Worlds II is a huge improvement over the previous game, with some really lovely scenary, while the soundtrack is suitably cinematic and the voice acting is better.
There is plenty of heavy weight competition for Two Worlds II this year with Dragon Age II and The Witcher 2 also vying for your role playing dollars. It may not compete when it comes to budget, but Two Worlds II might be the more charming game. The world of Antaloor is really varied, it is more humorous than most fantasy games and it is genuinely huge with tons of content. The magic and weapon systems are really innovative and give you players of room for creativity.
Two Worlds II is shaping up to be a massive improvement on the weak first game, and a really promising fantasy RPG with many hours of gameplay.
