Would you recommend someone purchase this game if they will be playing it primarily with two players? IE - Is it a good two-player game?

My first experience with the game was the two player version. Like many 2 player variants it's very different in feel from the larger game. I like it though and I'd play it with only 2 players in the future.

It is good enough as a two player game and you should get it.
I´ve played it 2 player and instantly rated it an 8.

Don't know if you can compare, but is it good with any number? Chaos in the Old World really seems best with 4 and ok with three if you leave out Khorne. Is this good from 2-5?

Cyclades is a very good game with 2 players. It's like you play with 4 players. You can have 2 gods in your turn, cause they are 4 available (only one is out). And you can make combos with gods (like if you have both posidon and ares in same round!)

I've played games at 2, 4 and 5 players and liked 2 least out of all of them. I feel like the game resolves before it ends in the 2p variant. It goes longer, but because there aren't multiple players to check the leader, the player in front will often run away with the game.

I love Cyclades as a multiplayer game, but there are better things to do with two people.

I would definitely recommend 2p. The mechanics work very well for the entire range of players. For 2 players, its very competitive IMO. So if you like that kind of thing, its definitely a good choice
