Two Worlds II: An "Opportunity For Redemption"
When your first effort flops, it's always difficult to convince consumers with good memories to play the second effort.
But while the original Two Worlds really wasn't very good, TopWare Interactive is confident in the upcoming sequel and asks that you not dismiss it based on the first game's failures. According to a recent PCGZine interview with TopWare community director Jake DiGennaro, we're reminded that the team has "made no effort to make excuses" about the shortcomings in Two Worlds. No, they've been well aware for a while; with a Metacritic average of only 65, it wasn't considered a must-play game. But developer Reality Pump has been toiling away to insure a much higher average review score this time around:
"We took special care in identifying the things we did well that players enjoyed, as well as the areas we needed to improve that caused the game to suffer, and are excited to bring players back into the totally revamped world of Antaloor. Two Worlds II is really the franchise's opportunity for redemption, and one we have not taken lightly."
Well, good. Two Worlds II is set to arrive for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on September 17 and those looking for an RPG with similarities to other popular franchises like Fable and Oblivion should definitely consider a purchase. Everyone deserves a second chance, right?
