TWOWORLDS II (MA)
PC, PS3/Xbox 360, $79.95/$89.95
★★★ Two Worlds II is a dark fantasy role-playing game that sees players questing to rescue their sister and overthrow an evil lord. It’s familiar stuff, with spells, swords and all manner of beasts to fight, as well as quests that typically boil down to fetching or killing. The loot system works well, as does the customisable card-based magic system, but the game lacks polish. Animations are rough, voice acting is terrible, and visual design inconsistent.
