    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.

    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.

    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.

    Star Wars: forever and ever the best experience in roleplaying bar none, nothing will ever be cast in its shadow. Those who love final Star Wars: forever and ever the best experience in roleplaying bar none, nothing will ever be cast in its shadow. Those who love final fantasy and then there are those who hate it, the same is true for knights of the old republic. An awe inspiring legend. Expand

    Awesome. True to Star Wars and KOTOR. Story was very compelling and a lot more exciting than KOTOR. The only bad: Very, very bad choice of Awesome. True to Star Wars and KOTOR. Story was very compelling and a lot more exciting than KOTOR. The only bad: Very, very bad choice of colour for text and menus. The first game's calm, and easy-on-the-eyes made use of brilliant shades of blue. I know, seems stupid. But it made a huge difference to me. 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
