Not quite KOTOR...
18 September 2011
Summary: I loved KOTOR and couldn't get enough, so I bought KOTOR 2. It's a fine game, but can't match the epic scale of its predecessors. The biggest problem is bugs and what seems like an incomplete plot. Here are some thoughts: STORY KOTOR was renowned for its epic story. KOTOR 2's story by contrast is a bit vague and never really fulfills its potential. Basically, several Sith Lords are assassinating the Jedi and you have to gather the last of the Jedi masters.
Not a bad game . . . but you might want to wait for the price to drop before buying.

Summary: The first KOTOR was, in my opinion, one of the greatest games ever. Though it had its flaws, they were few and far between. Obsidian and everyone involved with putting out KOTOR 2: TSL deserves an enthusiastic round of applause for their efforts to make a follow-up to such a stellar game. They managed to come up with a sequel that, while plauged with bugs and other issues, is nonetheless relatively enjoyable.
Summary: Before I start pointing out the pros and cons of this game, I'd just like to applaud Obsidian for what they did. Taking over the development from BioWare was no easy task, especially considering the original KOTOR won 48 Game of the Year awards. I think they did a very good job with this game. I will also keep this review spoiler free for those of you who have not played through the game yet. Now the difficult part of reviewing this game.
Excerpt: "I was really looking forward to playing this, after the previous one enjoyed awards galore and was a smash success. The Sith Lords for me, will go down (and I believe already has) as one of those “what might have been” games if a longer development period was granted to it. I’m assuming you’ve played the previous title, so if you haven’t I’d suggest reading reviews there first. 5 years have passed since the last ...
Pros: Star Wars feel, expands on last game, HK - 47
Cons: Slow to start, also a bit glitchy & missing content .
Excerpt: "...game of the year (2003) Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. KOTOR 2: The Sith Lords, this time made by Obsidian Entertainment instead of Bioware, takes place 5 years after the events of the first game. Those that are familiar with the original, will know that the majority of the game is open to your own playing style and moral choices - Light vs. Dark or on the fence Neutral - and because of this, the games ending differs as do the characters ...
Excerpt: "...the events of the first Star Wars film, and 5 years after the events of the first Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) game. As usual the Jedi, guardians of the galaxy and all that, have managed to let themselves almost be wiped out entirely, and yes - it's somehow all up to you to save things. No change there then… You start the game unconscious and desperately in need of help, and in the prelude (I'd advise skipping it unless you've never played ...
Pros: Has most of the strengths of the first game, a few additions . . .
Cons: . . . the storyline isn't as good, some technical problems . . .
Conclusion: This game is an awesome game once you can get it to work, there are many problems that could not be fix with this game because the idiots at lucasarts rushed obsidian, so what could of been the most awesome starwars game is the second best, first being bioware's original.
