So much but yet so little.

Two Worlds 2 is one of those games that you'll love it and hate it at the same time. It open doors with your imagination, and has alot to offer the statistics junkies. It has beautiful landscapes and the world does it's damnest to impress you.
The problem is gameplay. It has warts. Overall, the combat and exploration ON THE SURFACE is fun and ingadging. The problem is, combat never seems to get deeper and eventually just gets plain easy. Playing as a mage, you become armegeddon on legs.
Next in line to show it's ugly is the AI. Monsters and NPC's alike are plain stupid. Pathfinding, attacking, even acknowlwgement of your presence can and does break the emergence, the landscape tries so hard to get you to believe. Monsters will just stand there while you beat thier brains in.
Grafix is a booster shot. They are gorgous and very atmospheric. Dungeons look dark and creepy, tombs that does everything but provide the scent. Tourches throw eriee lighting around em, and towns feel lived in.
Sound. It is plainly AWESOME!!! Music, is very pleasing and match the atmosphere of the game. Monsters, voice acting (although sometimes campy), backround noises, sounds of the city really help make you feel the mood.
Two Worlds 2 overall is a fun game. The quests are all intresting, weapons, armor, spells, ect. ect. are fun to play with and experiment with. If you give it achance, you'll get your money out of it.
