When I first heard of Two Worlds II I had no idea what it was. Even upon winning it on good old ps3blog.net I didn’t know what to expect. Now I have to say that I’m presently surprised. The game does have its bugs but is still an enjoyable play. I’m not a huge fan of sandbox style RPG’s, never really enjoyed Elders Scrolls or the like, but this game has caught my attention and I’m not sure why.

With Square Enix and the team behind Alpha Protocol making the game, I expected more.

It doesn’t stop there either when you see the animal robots that you ride in particular Hamstertron 2000. The Bee 2.0 also showcases in some memorable levels that take you in new unexpected directions and that is one of the ways LBP 2 justifies its existence. With LBP 1, Media Molecule effectively created a game that needed no sequel, it could live on indefinitely thanks to users creating new levels in varied and imaginative ways, thankfully MM saw otherwise.
