Your opinions of these four?


Recommended Posts

I know most people hated Two Worlds, I personally enjoyed the hell out of it.

Yes it's buggy, yes the controls especially while riding is wonky, yes the voice acting is laughably bad.

However the world is HUGE, the creatures varied, the quests plentiful and the sense of exploration and discovery is great!!

Really enjoyed it.

I really couldn't agree more with this sentiment. There are a ton of reasons why this game rightfully received all of the bad reviews, but somehow I managed to enjoy it quite a bit when I was playing it (enough that I re-bought it after I lost my first copy). It can be had for less than $10 now, so it's definitely worth that. I haven't played any of the others that you mentioned though.

Loved Divinity 2

 

Can you elaborate? They just re-released this game I believe with a soundtrack and I'm guessing any DLC that was available?

I've got it on my wishlist, just haven't really heard anything about it. What did you love about the game?

I preferred tw1 over tw2, far more exploration.

 

Divinity 2: its similar to two worlds but more difficult. You're more confined to certain areas until you level up properly because stepping out of the area before you're ready will kick your ass. If you want a challenge id give it a shot.

 

Gothic 4: haven't played it yet but id like to.

 

Rise of the argonauts: its been ages since I've played this and don't remember anything about it. Id say check some reviews for that one. All I know is that I didn't dislike it.

Ok Gothic IV is Arcania Gothic IV and you're in luck, I've been playing it recently.

I will say this about it, it's a lot like Two Worlds!!! (From what I recall it's been awhile since I've played TW

The voice acting is better, I think maybe the characters look a bit better, although I have to tell you women in this game are bugly. Decent bods, but ewww a face only her mama could love. You see what I mean right from the start.

 

Anyways.

 

The game chugs along, maybe a bit smoother than TW, but man are there jaggies, and things like bushes and grasses just kind of disappear when you get near them. Lots of bugs too, talked to a guy out on the road and it transported me back to the town I had just left when I got done talking to him. I guess maybe that's where he was walking too and I got caught up in it. I dunno. Made me back track. I've killed creatures and had their corpses float in the air, almost always when you kill a creature you can still hear it for a few seconds, like a fly buzzing like it's still alive and flying...but it's dead. Goofy stuff like that. So far I haven't gotten stuck anywhere or fallen through the world or anything. No game ending bugs.

 

Lots of decent questing. Lots of places to explore. Like Two Worlds it has a main map for above ground, and a main map for below ground. Although some of these quests seem like they are going to be hard. Like find 30 forgotten graves, or find 30 artifacts. Thing is, there doesn't seem to be a way to discover them, other that just finding them laying around! Like an artifact sitting on a rock in the middle of no where! A lump of dirt in the middle of the woods is a grave. There are little butterflies that hover around stuff like that a lot of time, so I guess that is a clue. Just have to scour the country side I guess. I know I'm going to hate it when I'm almost done with the main quest, been everywhere and still have like 27/30 graves.

 

This game has lots of cool creatures, items, crafting, spells, it is rough around the edges for sure, but so far I'm having a really fun time with it in spite of it's glitches. I think if you've played and enjoyed Two Worlds, you'll probably get a kick out of Gothic IV.

Two Worlds is kind of a joke but it is probably a good bargain bin game. I wouldn't be as annoyed with it if I hadn't paid full price for it I suspect. The interface is awful on the 360 though. It handles much better on the PC.

 

One thing not to miss is the soundtrack for the game though. Two Worlds actually has a beautiful soundtrack that deserves to be in a better game.
