A great idea for a main character, memorable teammates and a plot shrouded in mystery makes The Sith Lords one of my favourite games of all time.

Some people may find the first section of the game quite linear, but the game only really begins once you leave Telos. Also, the wait for a lightsaber makes getting it all the better.

Be sure to install the latest version of the Restored Content Mod, which adds in dialogue, scenes and missions that were cut from the official release. The mod also removes many of the games glitches.

KOTOR II is one of the great RPGS of all time, and especially so for the PC. Although this sequel was released in 2004, it is still a great game and remains extremely playable today. Even though Bioware developed the first KOTOR, they ended up handing the job over to Obsidian. Obsidian did an equally impressive job with it. LucasArts can thank both companies for putting them on the map with these two great games (Ok, maybe that's a bit melodramatic, but still.)

The use of KOTOR II's Light Side/Dark Side system is a lot like the modern day systems of good/evil characters. When you as the character does or says evil things then you grow more in tune with the dark side of the force. The contrast to this is of course, doing good deeds and saying not-so-evil stuff. This leads to the Light side of the force. In either case you will grow more powerful and influence those you travel with. This will also effect your force powers amongst many other things...

The Story
The single defining feature of KOTOR or KOTOR II is the story. Anyone who loves Star Wars must love a good mythos from the Star Wars world, especially one this early in the timeline of the Star Wars Universe.
This sequel begins when a stranger, oblivious to his past, wakes up in a Mining Station medical bay, only to notice no one is around. No one...except a mysterious elderly woman. Journey to several planets and cause havok or create order. Kill the weak or defend them. All the while, you search for the power to make you a Master of the Force.

Pros:
- Great main storyline with various other mini-quests, all which act in canon with the Star Wars universe.
- Open world that you would expect from an RPG
- Choose what you say to someone carefully; You could end up in a fight or effect the story.
- Choose light or dark side; Your actions will decide what you become.
- Tons of lore from the Star Wars universe you can't find anywhere else!!

Cons:
- Graphics are from the first Xbox generation, but it still holds today.
- Some of the voice overs for alien species are simply repeated recordings on loop.
- Occasionally, a glitch or two might happen
- RARELY, but sometimes there are game breaking bugs. There are only two that I know of, and one of them ruined my first game. This requires the double save slow technique.

Verdict? - 8.5/10 This is my favorite Star Wars game hands down. Many people also recognize this particular game to be LucasArts' crowing achievement. Obsidian does a great job with the sequel to Bioware's KOTOR and does Star Wars in general great jutice. If you call yourself a Star Wars fan, and you don't already own this, then shame on you!

This is Star Wars free from George Lucas. He created the saga, and Obsidian show how to continue it, creating more stuff thats even better.

I have played this game over 500 hours, I bought it on Steam just to have an easy way to install it. 4 cd to install it is a little annoying today.

I can write long novels why I love this game, why I play it more than I play Kotor 1. But I will try to make this short.
The Sith Lords has:
- great characters with deep personalities
- dark stories and setting
- a deep lore thanks to Kotor 1 and Tales of the Jedi-comic
- fantastic dialog with complex possibilities
- an improved crafting-system (6 parts-lightsaber anyone?)
- Influence-system with your compainons
- make your own jedi or sith-team. Even good guys can be turned to the dark side.
- Be a jedi, or turn to the dark side and be a Sith Lord. It really change alot

Playing through the game once? You have missed much, I promise you, I still learned new stuff on my fourth playthrough.

Is the game perfect? No, its not. Its a slow start, it really is, and it was a rushed game, so bugs, it had alot of bugs on release, but nearly all is fixed today, and some things was left out, and not really a good ending, . But the way there, is so gooood. So much improved from Kotor 1, and so much content. Its a 30+ hour game.

From me, a die hard Star Wars fan, and not too experienced with rpg, its a 10/10 points.
