This series of games are my favorite and I have to say I am probably going to add about 500 hours of gameplay to this game. Also if you see the TSLCRM-The Sith Lords Content Restoration Mod, get it because it adds more story to this game and makes it a lot better. It is bad that as soon as I saw that Steam had this game, I ran to the closest place that sold Steam Cards and grab a $20 and bought this game as soon as I could. That is how much respect I have for this game it may be around 10 years old, I would rather buy this game then some of the new games coming out.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords is an Adventure RPG based on the D20 System. As the Republic lies in shambles five years after the Dark Wars, a former Jedi who lost his connection to the force is pursued by a trio of dark jedi masters who roam the galaxy, seeking its destruction.

Pros: Darker story than the previous one with a lot of shades of grey. Alligning yourself with the light side of the force may cause death, while other times the dark side of the force may save innocent lives, and seeing the consequences of your actions makes much more of a moral struggle to determine what really is the right thing to do. You get to spend time and train some of your companions into jedis, and yourself get to upgrade your jedi class with a new selection of 3 jedi master classes. Crafting has also been enhanced, adding among other things the ability to disassemble existing items into parts and chemicals. There also are many winks to locations or characters from the previous game, without actually needing to have played it to understand everything.

Cons: As with the previous game, the graphics didn’t age too well, and unfamiliarity with tabletop RPGs and the D20 system might confuse many who try to understand and optimize their character’s equipment. The game has multiple bugs due to problems in the development, making the story somewhat hard to follow: A cut scene might pop in but the scene that lead to that event was missing, or maybe you were on your way somewhere and suddenly jump to your cockpit with your ship having landed on a planet you’re unsure how you got there.

Verdict: This is a darker game using the same mechanics as the previous one. The bugs aren’t game breaking, and actually added to the strange and unsure atmosphere your character goes through in understanding the larger forces involved. If you didn’t like the first one, you won’t like this one either. But otherwise, I definitively recommand it!

If you enjoyed the original, you will enjoy this.

Gameplay is same ol, same ol, good or bad.

Graphics are nice, scales nice.

If you're gonna play, DO NOT FORGET TO DOWNLOAD THE RESTORED CONTENT MOD! It replaces all the lost scenes and quest arcs left out from the console port!

8/10

Only con is the usual KOTOR syndrome of vague quest lines. Random backtracking to finish a quest can get annoying

A timeless game that makes you feel like you are a jedi or sith! I played the original Knights of the old republic back in 2003 and absolutely loved it...then I played the sequel and also loved it, though I didn't dedicate myself as much as I had to the first one! Now I have rectified that mistake. KOTOR 2 is a wonderful game even for todays standards of 2014. I have spent 34 hours completing it and savoured every second. I beleive these games transport you to a sweeter Star Wars universe than the one you see in all those movies. 5*.

Manages to build on its predecessor positively in nearly every department, with awesome characters, even better villains, and just a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish.

Great game in general and in sequel to one of my favorite games. I'd recommend this game to anyone that has an affinity for a good party based RPG that has some great dialog and story to it. This game has a few problems, most of which were covered up by a restoration mod that I used, but other than those issues there is the problem of this game being rushed to release. The ending is the main thing to be suffered from being rushed to released but I don't think that should effect whether or not you buy the game. If you have played the first Knights of the Old Republic the game play is generally the same but really stands out with great dialog and deep characters. I feel like there was a bit more adventure in the first one though, but even with a rushed release I feel the game is still on the level of the first game in many ways.

Excellent RPG with a Star Wars theme. Very buggy and no wide screen support, however. But what can you expect from a game that came out from 2004? I reccommend using the TSLRCM mod.

Great fun! I've been playing this game since its release on the original Xbox and it never gets old, great characters and gameplay, Story isn't as strong as the first game but with the restoration mod it does pick up a lot (also you can't blame Obsidian for a lax story, they were competing with Bioware afterall).

Highly Recommended for Star Wars Fans old and new, or even just RPG fans in general.

When the first Kotor game came out, from what I've read of professional reviews, professional reveiwers and fans considered it revolutionary and awarded it high praise. Naturally, when a sequel was announced high hopes were set and the community seemed to be disappointed.

The problem with TSL is that it was rushed for a Christmas release so much of the content was cut. Yeah, cutting out extra side missions might not have been that big of a problem. But areas that would have major characters interact or provide some sort of explanation were cut (ex. an area involving the HK factory on Telos was cut, a fight between Nihlus and Sion were cut, interactions between Atton or the Disciple and Sion - I can't remember whether it was Atton or the Disciple - were cut, a possible scene towards the end that would've been more fulfilling comared to the current ending we have now with Kreia was cut). Sure there are mods to restore cut content but I don't think it's the same. First impressions are the most important, and unfortunately TSL didn't create as good of one as its predecessor.

That being said, I do enoy playing through TSL. I won't add any more spoilers but I can say that I find the plot interesting, as well as the support characters. There was, it seems a bit of fan service, *ahem* *Atton* *cough* *Han* *hack**Mandolre* but I can deal with it. It's a fond memory of my childhood despite its slight shortcomings.

All in all, I would give this a shaky 3/5.

Not as good as the first, story-wise IMO, but the second installment definetly improved on the combat system, A.I., force powers, & +/- influence with the dark and light side. Some glitches here and there, but nothing too minor.
