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.
