    New powers, faster combat and new environments - such as Korriban, ancient Sith Lord burial ground - make this trip to KOTOR-ville more than just an Old Republic retread. [Jan 2005, p.54]
  2. This game really has everything you could want, including one of the best if not the best stories of the year, and it'll certainly slake any gamer's thirst for adventure.
  3. A fine RPG - it's just not the earth-shattering sequel that people might expect. [Feb 2005, p.100]
  4. Obsidian ditched the level cap, added randomized items, and made Knights of the Old Republic II a better game in almost every respect than its predecessor. I just wish they'd had the time to iron all the bugs out of the final version.
  5. A sequel that doesn't disappoint. KOTOR 2 is both a great Xbox RPG and a great Star Wars game.
  6. Tries much too hard for its own good. The writing is mostly passable, but dialogue lacks the feeling and nuances of the original, hence the game is morally much more black and white. The combat is also much too easy. It's still good fun for some of the time, though. [Feb. 05]
  7. Though I loved the original, I was less enthralled by the sequel. It felt too much like a typical role-playing dungeon crawl, in which you go from room to room fighting endless battles.

    If you don't give this game a ten you have something wrong with you. Right now I am playing it for the third time, and i'm not tired of it.

    Great game but is very unfinished on Xbox. You're doing yourself a disservice by not playing this game on PC with the Sith lords RestoredGreat game but is very unfinished on Xbox. You're doing yourself a disservice by not playing this game on PC with the Sith lords Restored Content mod and other mods that fix the games problems! Great story though and writing is superb. I honestly find this game to be better than KOTOR 1 which just follows the "hero" "good vs evil" story line while this game makes you think more. Expand

    BAD: Unplayable. The load times ultimately killed this game, and that's before even considering the dated graphics and buggy character BAD: Unplayable. The load times ultimately killed this game, and that's before even considering the dated graphics and buggy character design. 5 hours (counting 2 hours of just loading) till I get a lightsaber? C'mon! If Jade Empire gets this kind of treatment... GOOD: You can save anywhere. That's about it for the good. Expand
