I played this game upon it's release, and even with the official patch from Bioware it just never quite played smoothly, and would constantly glitch, crashing your desktop, and corrupting game saves. But this is 2016! I am happy to report that I have Windows 10, and this game works beautifully on Steam. I have had the random crash to desktop, but for it's age, the game is actually fun to play this time around. I will finally get to tell Atton where to stick his Pazzak deck and make him my apprentice! The turn-based combat is a little repetitive, but, I knew what I was getting into. It may frustrate a modern player, though. And the speech options! At one point your character him/herself even begins to question the need for every character you meet to have, like forty parsecs of dialog trees. But, as I say, I knew what I was getting into, but a player playing it for the first time may think it's a little much. I have now crafted my own lightsaber and embraced the full power of the dark side! Galaxy beware!

Let me tell you a story.

I installed the restored content mod, booted up the game, made a Consular and went into the options to crank up the difficulty to the max before I started. I consider myself pretty good at games built off Bioware systems, and I played KOTOR I on the hardest difficulty without issue.

Fine, all was dandy. Played the game going full sith. Corrupted all my companions, which was a very memorable experience. Downloaded it on my laptop and kept playing from there. The first 35 hours of the game was absolutely amazing, and I was rejoicing in my EEVIL.

However, around the 30 hour point I noticed how easy the game seemed to be getting. Being the stereotypical arrogant gamer, I thought that was down to my epic skills and great build. I got lazy, thought the game was so easy, I only bothered to level up 3 characters, and the others were left in the dirt.

How wrong I was.

See, the first 35 hours or so are epic, but the ending of the game is unfinished. There are a lot of endless rooms with the same trash mobs. The restored content mod is a mixed blessing, because it brings back a lot of extra levels which feel very empty, as the devs only half-finished them and didn't put them in the game. By the 50 hour point, I was getting fed up. Just wanted it to be over.

Then came the HK factory. Oh boy. The ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ HK factory is one of the half-finished levels put in by the restored content mod. It's in the ending sequence, so you can't back out once you've got there without losing hours of progress. Would usually be fine, but it turns out the HK factory is a solo mission. A solo mission for one of the characters I'd never bought gear for or levelled up. So I was stuck there. With a character with default starting armor, no weapons and no accessories. He has level 3 stuff, against endless level 23 trash mobs of EXACTLY the same enemy.

Let me get this straight, there are at least 100 enemy droids in the HK factory. Every single one of them was capable of oneshotting my character. He did like 10 damage to their health pools of 200+ HP with every shot. Whatever, I thought, I'll turn down the dificulty.

To my horror, when I opened up the options menu, I realised that when I transferred the game over to my laptop the difficulty settings had not transferred. I'd been playing the entire game on easy. This was as easy as it got. Oneshots and 10 damage per shot. It seemed impossible.

At this point, usually I would just laugh at myself and watch a let's play of the game's end. But for some reason I was determined to finish this game. It played me! I would get my revenge at any cost!

So I scraped together all the health potions I had and RAN through the HK factory level. If I got hit more than once, I'd have to start over again. It was absolute agony. I died so many times, as many rooms had 5+ enemies which could jump me at once. So I had to learn, gradually, the exact patterns I could run so that I could avoid taking the damage. It was the most pathetic I've felt playing a game. It took quite a few hours, and I was so close to giving up. But in the end, I did it. I suffered, but I did it. Upped and ran past every single enemy in that large level. And after doing that, I felt more satisfaction that I can ever remember feeling from playing a game - even after defeating Dark Souls bosses or something like that. I was rewarded by the game's real ending sequence (which is awesome).

I felt a warm glow of pride from being able to successfully run away from trash mobs on easy difficulty. 10/10 game is an emotional rollercoaster, would recommend the suffering to anyone.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 is a tough nut to crack in terms of a good review.

The game was released too early and so there are still broken missions, to this day. It was also meant to be a build up for a third installment, which never came due to EA's Star Wars: The Old Republic which (and by trying to spoil as little as possible) leaves you with an incredibly bitter after taste when the credits roll after Knights of the Old Republic 2.

And yet, I replay it at least once a year and have done so since its release. Even though this sequal to the classic is a lot lazier in terms of character substance and campaign.

So, what is it that takes us back to this unfinished sequal of, what I think is, one of the best RPG's ever made?

Star Wars: Knights of the Republic 2 goes dark. There is no better way of saying it. While its predecessor let you choose the Dark Side for the sake of sadistic fun, Kotor 2 shows you what the force really is, and how little it means in the end to be a Jedi or a Sith.

I recall a particular moment, very simular to many from the first game, where a beggar comes up to you and ask for money. Choosing the Light Side option as I normally do, my Jedi gave the beggar a few credits and sent him on his merry way. I was given a few Light Side points for my kindness.

Then, a wild Treya appears.

Treya is an enigma, and the very first character you meet in the game. She will keep a close eye on you, be you Light side or Dark and right there, she shows you a vision of the man, and how he walks off to get himself a meal. She tells you that every action has its consiquence, followed by your vision of the man being robbed, and murdered. You gave him the money. You made him a target.

And this is the excellence of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2. It goes further than option one and option two. This game will test you, not only as a player, but as a person. It has its bugs, to the points that it actually needs a MOD to even be playable on some machines, but if you get it running, and if you have the time to put into it, I strongly recomend this game.

To me, this is not only one of the very best RPG's, but one of the very finest storylines ever written.

May the force be with you.

One of the best games I've ever played, and definitely one of the best story based games I've played. It's best played with the Restored Content mod from the Workshop.

Darth Nilus and Darth Scion are the bad guys. They are on a mission to have violent sex with you. A long time ago you were a Jedi, you trained under the infamous Darth Mercurial and his lover Darth Reba. The battles are long and the journey is short. A game with a lot of fluffing but not pay off.
Most of the game you are running in a circle, jerking off every spacer and smuggler you can get your greasy palms around. AFter killing all the potential children by wasting alien ♥♥♥♥♥ you get the famous Ebony Fox. This ship is equiped with the latest in blacksplotative weapons. THe Afrom Cutter, the Brown Sugar Thigh ray, Africannon, and Etc.
Do I recommend this game, yes it is edgy and dark, with a fair amount of butt secks. Finding out the true identity of the Entity is a thrill in the hot pocket. Now to be fair, nothing beats the polish of the original, Star Wars Girlfriend simulator, but this one changes the structure up in a pizza blasters kinda way.
No one is born with every stat at 10 but once in a while a game comes along and challenges your gender and sexuality. This game does that fantastically. Too bad its a C- game at best. ♥♥♥♥ YOU!

Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is best played with TSLRCM (Restored Content Mod). If you don't have it for this game, get it. Most mods you will ever download for this game depend on that mod to function correctly.

Alright, let me start of by saying HOLY ♥♥♥♥! I mean KOTOR II was an absolutely incredible game - even better with TSLRCM. As much as I enjoyed KOTOR 1 (and I really really enjoyed that game) I enjoyed this game even more. I'm not sure why this one is more enjoyable, but I'm guessing the fact you can actually influence your companions and train most of them in the ways of the force?

Anyways here is my breakdown of the game:

PROS
+ Includes 57 Steam Achievements (Though for this particular game I find them useless and distracting)
+ Each time you play through the game you may discover/learn something you didn't in the previous playthrough
+ Excellent/Addictive Story
+ In many ways a contiuation of the first, yet not in so many others (Depending on what you say to Atton, Carth and Bastila make an appearance somewhere in the story)

CONS
- Too many technical and non-technical issues & bugs to count. Even with all the TSLRCM fixes there's still quite a lot.
- Feels WAY shorter than the first
- Without TSLRCM, the story will NOT make much sense
- Your first playthrough most likely will be your worst, like mine (but not your last thankfully)
- This marks the end of the KOTOR Games (It's highly unlikely KOTOR III will happen folks)
- The workshop makes installing non-workshop KOTOR II Mods a huge pain in the ♥♥♥ (I'm playing a semi-working but broken game right now thanks to the lousy Workshop)

My Rating: 10/10 (Highly Recommended)

HK-47 - Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope... Love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticule, and together, achieving a singular purpose against statistically long odds.

Playing this game comes pretty close to that feeling.

Now all we need is an open world Jedi Knight RPG with the scale of Elder Scrolls, except with the addition of exploring other planets.

This is not the sweet roll you are looking for.

An amazing sequel to an amazing game. This role-playing game succeeds in living up to the original and improves many of the problems that its predecessor had while simultaneously adding new features. It is a game that every fan of the genre and franchise should play.

As someone that thought the first game was one of the best games ever made. KOTOR 2 with the restored content mod, blows it out the water.

Its dialogue and everything is so superior. I honestly feel like this is possibly the greatest game ever made.

Its by far the greatest thing to ever come out of the Star Wars liscence and universe.

If you want very deep characters, dialogue, story and purpose in your games then get KOTOR 2.

Simply amazing.
