I could go on for hours about how well written, voiced, and designed Kreia is as a character, but I think I speak better for everyone when I say this.

I bought that game because I love the 1st one but I was really disapointed by this one. I think the story and the character are boring. I just felt nothing for them. then the rewards for the missions are just stupid! It's like "Ou, you brouht that letter to that one guy? Thaks, here thake that lightsaber". Also the part with the droid factory witch was cut out but still mentioned in the game was disappointing

2016 and it continues to be one of the greatest RPGs ever made.

This game is probably the deepest game about Star Wars you'll ever find; everything is explained, everything is lore-wise, and there are countless names and items that people in-game talk about that will make you see the SW Universe with wider eyes. Sure there are some glitches here in there, but nothing a reload wont help.

It's really cheap right now so why not.

And if you're going to buy it, dont forget to install (Through the Workshop, why yes, is that easy) the Restored Content Module for optimal experience and glitch-fixes

In my opinion, this may be the single most underrated video game of all time. Granted, the original version as I played it on my Xbox was indeed a bit of a mess story-wise. I have no idea why this game was recently updated with full modern game amenities (steam cloud, achievements, controller support, workshop, etc) but it's one of the happiest gaming surprises I've ever seen. Playing through this game again - this time with the restored content mod - was an awesome opportunity I never thought I would have.

This game probably isn't for everyone - but if, specifically, the philosophy of Star Wars (and the Force) has ever interested you in a deeper way, this game was made for you. The way it deconstructs the Force - what it means to be a Jedi, a Sith, what generalizations those titles reflect, and what meaning they contain, if any, is infinitely fascinating, and I find myself reflecting on the scenarios and characters introduced in this game more so than that of any other Star Wars property, except perhaps the original KotOR. Kreia, a character you will get to know throughout this game, is my favorite fictional character of all time. I say that not only as a massive video game fan, but a fan of tons of comics, movies, and books as well.

If you have ever asked deeper questions about the Force - or just wanted to find out wtf happened after the first KotOR - this game is worth your time. Old school D&D RPG mechanics are a welcomed relief in this day and age of actionactionaction, too.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II is one of the most underrated RPGs of all time while also being one of the greatest RPGs ever made. Hands down. This game has been plagued with an undeserved negative reputation all across the internet for reasons I can only assume must be both malicious and blatantly fraudulent.


Heres my take on KOTOR2 and it's bad rep.

1. MAJOR BUGS and GLITCHES
I have never EVER suffered a single game killing bug playing KOTOR2 unlike what is said from everyone else which leads me to believe it's all either collective disinformation or people need to stop playing on Win95 PCs, I have beat it 12 times with no mods and twice with many mods on multiple different PCs with both Windows and Linux (WinXP, Win7, Win10, Ubuntu 12.04, Peppermint 4, Lubuntu 16.04) using the DVD version, the Steam version and even the original Xbox version on both the original Xbox and Xbox 360. No game crashes, no freezes, no game killing bugs of any kind, not once, ever. Either I am very lucky, people do not know what they are doing or the internet is full of ♥♥♥♥. I have had resolution issues in the past but that was because AMD drivers suck and because the game was simply not made in the era of HD but it has since been updated to accommodate this very issue amongst other minor things.

2. THE ENDING WAS TERRIBLE
The ending was a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ cliffhanger, KOTOR 3 was already in the works to directly follow the game and got canceled. In other words, the story was not finished, it was to be continued on so in that the ending was actually really good in terms of what it was trying to accomplish which was, once again, a cliffhanger ending in preparation for a sequel that no one at the time knew would never happen. This is also perfectly in line with the Star Wars franchise, In "A New Hope" it had a cheesy dumb ending (like in KOTOR1) and in "Empire Strikes Back" it had a cliffhanger, a fairly dark cliffhanger (like in KOTOR2) in preparation for "Return of the Jedi" so imagine if Star Wars Episode 6 never happened and you were just left with the first two films and a cliffhanger ending of the second... Thats what it's like and people would call you dumb if you said "Empire Strikes Back sucks because the ending was just so gosh darn terrible!" If those people knew the facts behind the ending and why it never got explained, they'd call you and idiot and they'd be right.

3. KOTOR1 WAS BETTER
In what way? Story? Gameplay? Quality? To my mind it depends on what you want. Kotor1 was very basic, very to the point but yes was well written, well acted and overall well made. No question. BUT what did it lack?

- Depth in both story and character development.
- It, like all of Star Wars, had a very black and white view of good and evil both visually and in the ways it told the story.
- The gameplay had less game mechanics than Kotor2.
- The game had far less dialogue options than Kotor2.
- It had far less options in terms of how one completes a mission, granted not too much less... to be fair.
- Kotor1 in no real way branched off from the rest of the Star Wars universe in any way that would separate it from the rest of the franchise.. In other words, unlike Kotor2, it never questions the philosophical foundations of Star Wars and thus neatly fits within the Star Wars motif, some people may actually see that as a good thing... Whatever floats your Death Star.
- Kotor1 has a giant evil military machine floating in space. Kinda getting tired of giant Sith machines.
- Kotor1 contains too many damn Star Map dreams.
- In Kotor1 your choices do not directly affect your teammates except when you choose the dark side and only near the end of the game.
- Kotor2 actually tells you when ♥♥♥♥ is ♥♥♥♥ing empty.
- Kotor2 allows you to build/upgrade far more items.
- Kotor1's story was NOT written by Chris Avellone.

I'm sure I could go on but these are just a few things that Kotor1 doesn't have that Kotor2 did that made it far more interesting, immersive and fun.

MY RATING...
9/10

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II is an absolutely great game. But as many games do, it does have problems. And even though these problems are small and inconsistent, they are still a flaw in the game. And while it might not be as good as its predecessor, it still is an amazing game.

Pro's: Compelling main storyline, great characters, beautiful worlds, and the modding community.

Con’s: Bugs, and the starting planet.

Storyline:

The storyline of SWKOTOR 2 is a little complicated, but once you get to the nitty gritty, you can see it for its entirety. And while I would love to tell you how intriguing it is, I’m afraid that I will unwillingly tell you what the story is about. But once you start to play the game, and when you do get to the grit of the story, you will be more than interested in it.

Characters:

The characters, my god the characters. Never in my life had I felt so much hate, love, and understanding for characters. Not even with most of modern games today. Every character you meet, either side characters or companions, all feel fleshed out. And while there are a stray or two that feel like they are cardboard cutouts, it’s not enough to detract from the world of this game. And your companions are probably the most interesting people you are going to see in this game.

They all have their own agendas. One of them just wants to get out of the situation, one just wants to be in the situation, and they’re all just so damn interesting. Not a single one of your companions are the same. If you were to rob someone blind, one of your companions will tell you that it was worth it because we need the caps. While the other one will scold you and tell you off. The game finds a way for it to work, and it works beautifully.

Worlds:

The worlds in this game are absolutely stunning, and not a single world feels the same. If you go to Nar Shaddaa, you’ll feel crowded, claustrophobic, and lost. While on a forest world, you’ll feel like you're in the depths of a jungle. The world’s are portrayed outstandingly, and are an absolute charm to be in.

Modding:

The modding community in this game is ferociously great. There are so many mods for the game that I can’t even count. And no, not just the Steam workshop. There are mods that fix the game, make it look better, and make every single part of the game feel much more fleshed out.

Bugs:

And even though the game is great and has been patched multiple times, there are still so many damn glitches. One of these glitches, for instance, is a glitch that happens when you play the game for over 3-6 hours. And what basically happens is that is automatically skips dialogue for you. And while this is probably a must for speedrunners, the people who are more than interested in the game's narrative will find this a little more than annoying. But thankfully all you would need to do is simply restart the game to fix it.

But that still doesn’t mean that there aren’t some other bugs. I came to experience one of these bugs via teleportation. One minute I was walking down the hall and the next I was talking to one of my companions, and then the game crashed. And I lost everything that I have done up to that point. It was annoying but it only happened once while playing the game, so it wasn’t that big of a deal.

First World:

The starting planet is boring as all hell. The first time while I was playing the game felt like I was about to fall asleep while playing it. I don’t think I can explain it anymore than I have. It’s boring, plain and simple.

Verdict:

The game is amazing and it coulnd't be any more so. And it does have a few bumps here and there, but other then that, I couldn't recomend this game any more than I am.

Of course I recommend this - it is one of the best single player games I have ever played in my life! The story is absolutely fantastic and it runs like a dream on PC. Also, if you download the right mods, the game doesn't even look half bad (especially for an original XBOX game!) 10/10 Please buy and have the time of your life :D

Star Wars Knights of the old Republic II, to me, seemed like an awful game compared to the first one, but after going back and playing it again now in 2016, I now see how wrong I was. Kotor 1 still remains superior to the second, but it was pretty close.

If you haven't played the first kotor, please play it before purchasing this game, everything will make so much more sense.

If you decide to buy this game, I highly suggest downloading this mod https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=485537937&searchtext=

This is a restoration mod to add things to the game that originally were supposed to be there, but were cut due to a deadline for the games release. You can download this mod off the steam workshop, so don't worry all of you people who don't like downloading off sketchy mod websites.
