Ah, KOTOR II. Where to start? First, download The Sith Lords: Restored Content Mod. I state this because the standard game is highly unpolished, is missing a lot of extra dialogue and has many bugs that will frustrate anybody, whether they are new to Star Wars or loved the first KOTOR.

This game shows mechanics that would later be implemented into Mass Effect. A definite meter to determine morality, the breaking down of gear into components (or "omni-gel" for you Spectres), combat that can be paused while issuing commands to you and your squad along with a focus on dialogue options between NPCs and your companions. Your choices in these dialogues could allow you to avoid a combat situation, help progress a quest, or give more information on your companions or your surroundings.

Those familiar with some Star Wars lore (such as the movies or KOTOR I) are probably aware of the black-and-white morality shown. For example, KOTOR I gives you a situation where a woman is attempting to sell a hunters trophy belonging to her late husband. You can either buy the trophy from her (the light option), or convince the woman using the Force to give you the item (the dark option). KOTOR II blurs morality into tones of grey, where the Jedi are not seen entirely as the paragon of all that is good and where the ultimate "light" option is not always perceived as the most prudent one.

Part of this blurring of the lines is due to Kreia, one of the companions accompanying you, the Jedi Exile. A mysterious woman whose becomes more cryptic with every word, her musings and personality have convinced me she is one of the most fleshed-out and well written characters in video game history. The strange this is, not many of the other characters seem as interesting as Kreia in comparison. Actually, I'm somewhat wrong; HK-47 is a great companion as well. His mannerisms about murder, his copies and his past are worth listening to if you want to chuckle. Atton is somewhat interesting wisecracking pilot and the remaining characters aren't worth writing home about. They're not bad characters, just not great ones.

I'm going to stop this review now before I type spoilers and just tell you to play it. If you enjoyed Mass Effect, if you played KOTOR 1, if you enjoy learning about the lore of Star Wars, or if you need an RPG fix sorted out, KOTOR II is a great option. Just make sure to get the Restored Content Mod. It's really necessary to have a good experience.

To simply put it. This is my second favorite game of all time, second only to the first one “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” I'm not just saying that. It’s a testament to the strength of Knights’ original design that it manages to be gripping and engaging. It’s rare that I get so excited over a game, but the interactive storyline, the solid gameplay, and everything else managed to make me a firm believer that the future of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic will be bright one.

It's got enough Star Wars to satisfy the fans and enough pure fun to draw in people who normally wouldn't get into role-playing games. The story is well paced, with many plot twists to keep you guessing, and plentiful side quests to keep you occupied and chasing XP for that next level up. The PC version, long in waiting, takes advantage of system abilities to give you an immersive game that will leave you friendless, jobless and girlfriendless from the first time you play until you finish the game.

It offers some pretty fundamental improvements over the Xbox version and stands as one of the best PC RPGs out there. Its plot is arguably more satisfying than the ham-fisted narratives of the recent Star Wars films, and it certainly does a better job at conveying moral complexities.The voice acting and sound effects are all spot on and technically the game is far superior to the Xbox version that came out first. The graphics are smoother, the frame rate faster and while a huge Jedi battle can cause slow down, there isn't much to slow the game up from its moderate pace.

So say goodbye to you wife and kids, grab some gummy bears and a gallon of water. Because once you start this game you won't be seeing them for a while unless they catch in between you room and bathroom. You've been warned kid.

After the huge innovation of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, KOTOR2 had high expectations. It introduced advanced upgrading; a more fleshed out and expanded story; more force abilities and early game choices/customisations; and allies that you could get to know, gain influence with, and overal interact with, with much more depth.
From the get go, you're flung into a mystery as you find your character recovering from being held within an abandoned mining facility. I won't spoil the story for you, but I will say that it it never gives in - also raising new questions, and spawning many branches which act not only as side missions, but also to add more detail to the main story.
In KOTOR2, you start the game as a jedi, as opposed to becoming one later in the game. There are more force options, and more feats that make each of the 3 classes really distinct. This, combined with the game's element of choice, and a light/darkside meter, you will find it is a unique experience for each player.

So, for those who enjoyed the original KOTOR, this game will serve as both an extension to the story, and the means to get back into this amazing experience.
For new players, however, this game will still be blast to play. It features an easy to understand character creator, and a solid tutorial in the beginning. I would recommend playing the original KOTOR first though, to really understand both the gameplay; and more importantly, the story.

Kotor 2 is a fantastic game, and one played through many times. Each experience is unique, and the characters and story are really engaging.


*Also, on a side note. I recommend a mod called 'The Restored Content Mod', which will increase the amount of content in the game, as well as adding some 'lost' content that wasn't in the original game. It also fixes a bunch of bugs that really plague this game, due to it being released premature.

I think that Star Wars Knights of the old Republic II is an awesome experience and a must if you enjoyed the first game or Bioware games in general. Obsidian released it a little sloppy and missing lots of content, but the majority of cut content can be restored and bugs fixed with 'The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod' (TSLRCM); an aftermarket add-on developed to bring this game up to speed.

*Highly recommended, but only with TSLRCM.

KotOR 2, despite being chronically unfinished, is probably the best Star Wars RPG out there and here's why:
The story and especially the writing are absolutely phenomenal. The guys at Obsidian have managed to create a game that feels like Star Wars without any of the clichés associated with it. Where the first installment had a whiny Han Solo, a force using Leia and Chewie as carbon copies of their originals, this game puts multiple twists on most stereotypical Star Wars characters, fleshing them out so much more. Hell, even though all a certain Astromech droid "says" is random beeps, you know exactly what he wants to tell you, without anyone going "What's that, Lassie? There's boy trapped in the well?". It's just that amazing.
On top of it all the game features the best wirtten female character in any video game ever, but it's hard to praise the writing without spoiling the story, so I might as well stop now. Just so much: The game covers a multitude of philosophical questions, especially when reading between the lines, so you should be prepared to think while playing.

The graphics are dated, RTwP combat with DnD rules isn't everyone's thing but the same thing can be said for Planescape:Torment and it still is widely regarded as a (the?) classic RPG.

Things of note if you have played the predecessor:
While the graphics, animations and UI have remained pretty much on the same level when compared to KotOR 1, the characters' build diversity has been greatly increased, making things like a gun wielding Jedi viable options.
The combat itself hasn't changed much, except for a few extra skills and powers or new enemies, of course.
Loot is now randomly distributed and modding items as well as crafting them have been greatly expanded.

The story itself covers quite a few events that happened before KoTOR 1, although the game itself is set later. Due to this, I'd recommend playing the predecessor first (especially since its big twist would otherwise be spoilered). Otherwise, you might get lost, concerning the order in which things happened.

As so many others have already stated, the game's main issue is the fact that it's unfinished and unpolished but this can largely be fixed by downloading and installing the TSLRCM, a brilliant modification which restores a lot of cut content to the game, such as the great droid factory.
