Default Two Worlds II - First Magazine Review

October 12th, 2010, 21:02
I found myself teleporting to one of the big cities fairly often to check out shop-keepers stock, mainly because I had a couple favorite tracks that were only played in cities
Let me guess, it was Tharbakin and Opala?

In any event, sans nothing noted, the Euro version seems to be stable enough to give it a go when it gets released. And not worry about the US release sometime next year.
I'm talking about "popularity" not "playability". Many RPGers didn't like Oblivion (me too and I'm a huge fan of Morrowind by the way) but it sold well. If a German magazine gave it a high score, this means it's really a solid RPG. I am now wondering the NA reviews. They probably won't give it a high score: Because NA gamers do not like hardcore RPGs if it's not from their own country (sad truth).

Close. Opala was definitely the first song that made me sit up and think, "Hey, I'm really digging this music," and it's definitely one of my favorites. Then as I started listening to the tracks more closely, my favorite track by far was the one that a little searching on youtube revealed is titled, "Bot Moss Forest." I came to really like the Cathalon theme as well. Great, great stuff…

Sounds like the same experience I'm having with Fallout 3 right now. I need to retry Oblivion someday as well.

Very much looking forward to playing Two Worlds II.

Oops. I've turned the music completely off, like in most games I play (except adventures). Maybe I should turn it on sometimes again ?

Okay, where will an American be able to buy the European version? Is it legal for sites like Go Gamer to sell EU versions to us Yanks?

Some screens, most are kind of focused on trees becasue they've been used to show of my tree mods, but they get the job done showing how it has evolved with the use of Morrowind Graphics Extender i think:

Sorry for OT and screen spam
Wow, these shots look fantastic. Sorry for the late reply, had a system meltdown. I might have to find my old Morrowind disk, after seeing this.
