Better than the first and More ability to use magical powers which helps reduce the repetitive "press A" hack-and-slash element. Combining the weapons with gems was a great idea. Full Review »

    Pros: an improvement over the first episode. More characters. More ability to use magical powers which helps reduce the repetitive "press A" Pros: an improvement over the first episode. More characters. More ability to use magical powers which helps reduce the repetitive "press A" hack-and-slash element. Pretty graphics. Upgradeable weapons. More variety. Addicitive. Good, traditional fantasy story elements. Cons: still a very repetitive. Not enough fantasy elements, such as interaction with characters and objects. No enough information - I want to know what the beasts are I am killing and their strengths and weaknesses - there should be an encyclopaedia in the game. I hated the green jellies in the first game - they are still here. Why? Overall a very good game. Not quite as skillful and detailed as KOTOR, but a different, and fun, gaming experience.
