Summary: This game is clearly a sequel. But as a sequel to a truly amazing game, I expected it to be good. And it was, briefly. The gameplay is basically the same as the original KotOR, with a few new additions. There were new forcepowers, new feats, and the fancy new influence system. Depending on your actions, party members will be more or less influenced by you, and can become evil, or good.
Summary: Knights of the Old Republic 2 is, in most ways, extraordinarily similar to the original. All the gameplay mechanisms are the same. There are a few new force powers, more feats to acquire, and more items and upgrades. This is not a criticism: the original KOTOR was a great game. This is not, for one simple reason: it isn't finished. By this, I don't mean that the door is left wide open for a sequel, although it is. I don't even mean that the game is buggy, although it is.
Summary: Oh, man, here we go with the name calling already. Re reviews below: Ray is not an "idiot" L.L., he just expected his game to run since Kotor I ran okay on his system, and the engine is basically the same. I've had the opportunity to play Kotor II on the Xbox (friend's copy and console), and now I've just finished the PC version (hoping Obsidian/Lucas had learned something in the last two months). No such luck.
Summary: i loved the first knights of the old republic, and it was the best game of 2003. unfortunately so far this one is pretty boring. but the biggest problem: bugs. the game is so buggy at times it is almost not even worth playing. i crashed to desktop a couple of times. for some reason 'walls' will just appear out of nowhere; they are just graphics glitches and you can run through them but ruin the look of the game.
Excerpt: "...say that if you like Star Wars games, or games where you can upgrade and recruit characters, like Mass Effect, then buy this. It's cheap now, because it was released in 2005, and so the value for money is better than it was, but the length of the game is disappointing. It could be prolonged by doing every single quest given to you I suppose. ==Requirements== DirectX 9.0c compatible computer. OS: Windows 98 SE, Millennium (ME), 2000, and XP. (ran ...
Pros: Character development, A number of playable characters, Different planets to go to
Cons: Short game, Lightsaber has to be acquired, Predictable storyline
Summary: It was good at first until I realised that this game had a very similair premise to the last one and that kind of ruined it for me. However what really bothered me was the character of Kreia. She was great as she had potential to be a really interesting character as a cynical Jedi was has a 'grey' perspective towards the force, not light or darkside but rather in the middle, but they completly ruined it with the twist at the end which was nowhere near as good as the...
Conclusion: I played kotor and thought it was absolutely briliant.the plot,the characters and the twist wow. Then i brought the sequal. I was left totally gutted,again the storyline and characters were very good,but the fighting was rubbish and the finale was pathetic.
