Two Worlds: The Temptation - Q & A @ OXM.co.uk

UK site OXM has posted an interview  with the devs from Reality Pump exploring the reason for some of the low reviews their action rpg Two Worlds has received, and how they intend to address the issues in the sequel, Two Worlds:The Temptation":

 Why do you think Two Worlds had such a mixed reception from reviewers?
I can't say for sure, but I suspect that it was unfairly compared to Oblivion. It's understandable since Elder Scrolls was so good it basically set the standard. We were the next open world role-playing game to be released after it, so I think everyone expected it to be Oblivion part 2, when the reality is Two Worlds has more differences than similarities to Oblivion....

One improvement listed in the announcement was "improved voiceovers" - what will change with the voiceovers?
We did all the scripting and voiceover recording ourselves for the original Two Worlds, which I'm proud we accomplished but the end results show that it's not exactly our forte. So we're hiring professionals for The Temptation. The game's script is being written by someone that's worked on plenty of game dialogue in the past, and is getting many more passes and edits so it will read much better.
