Knights of the old republic II: The sith lords.

Kotor II: the sith lords is the sequel to biowares award winning RPG set in the star wars universe. Now I haven't finished the first one but I can tell you that this sequel is very good, maybe not better then the first but still good. The best thing about Kotor II is the character building, from leveling up to getting new gear and choosing between the Light and Dark sides of the force it's easy to get immersed. The story is also pretty good, though it is kind of predictable, it centers around you a jedi outcast who at the beggining of the game has been cut of from the force leaving you powerless. You then meet up with a women named Kreia and she helps you get some basic skills back, from there on out you'll do a multitude of star wars type things. The combat in the game is arguably the best thing in the game, it's very tactical and early on it can be downright hard. But once you get some of the more powerful force abilities back (Lighting is the best) you will most likely be more then capable of taking all who oppose down with great ease. The one place the game really trips up is in the games Graphics/ technical performance, the game doesn't look very good, even for an Xbox game, but it also doesn't perform well, with lots of framerate issues and bugs. But the game manages to overcome alot of it's issues with it's deep character building and overall Kotor appeal. It may not be everyones cup of tea but for me it was well worth it.

    KOTOR II is a perfect example of how an rpg is supposed to feel. 0

     KOTOR II is my personal favorite star wars based game and one of the best rpgs that I have played.Gameplay:Customization is great thanks to the effects the large amount of decisions, powers, and equipment contained in the game. The use of the pause button and easy to use options during battle, make it a very aprochable and fun rpg. I could really go on and on about how great the gameplay is in KOTOR II is, but there is something i have to say instead. The game should have been tested a bit more...

    Dissapointing sequel 0

    What? Another Star Wars game? The sequel to a game released just last year? Yes, you heard right, Knights of the is back and expectations are high, as games don’t get the ‘Game of the Year’ award just for nothing. So yes, it has been only a year since the release of the original KOTOR game that delighted RPG and Star Wars fans. Does that mean however that this is just a cheap cash-in from the original game’s success, perhaps even taking influence from such games as The Sims, and EA’s other fran...
