Game reviews for Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
I was a big fan of the first Star Wars Knight of the Old Republic, but felt that it was a little short.
I did really enjoyed and played it many times. This game however was suppose to correct some of the mistakes the other one made and need improvement.
The game starts out with challenges that are dragged out with mindless go fetch an item to complete a minor objective.
The gameplay when in battle seems to skip as if the disc has a scratch. That got very annoying very fast.
Another promise that feel through on all the previews I read was that there would be more planets to visit and some old ones. Ok two news one and two old one.
The length of the old planets is very short and not even worth playing, but the news have a lot of detail and bridge some gaps from the last game.
At times when playing I got very bored because the game seemed to drag on, but when I was excited it seemed only to last a few minutes.
The last Star Wars took me about forty hours to complete for both sides and some side quests. This one took me about twenty hours and some side quests seem to disappear after i reached a certain point.
My advice is to either rent it first or wait until the price drops before thinking of purchasing this game.
This is one of the best games i have ever played. I love RPGs so that probably counts for a lot, but it is a very in-depth game. Every choice has galaxy-wide influences.
Scale of 1-10
Graphics: 10- Very good detail, great backgrounds
sound: 8- some noises continue even though creatures killed or source destroyed, but still very good
Gameplay: 9- Very good, on par with other high-class RPGs, maybe even better.(influenced by love of RPGs)
Depth: 10- Everything has an outcome, be it a small influence/alignment change, or galaxy-wide
Strategy: 10- Have to keep good relationships with allies while maintaining force alignment.
characters: 10- Very Deep, all have history, some can turn into light/dark jedi based on your alignment, some characters only join based on alignment and gender.
