Loved this game. The sheer amount of content in this game has made me play it several times through, and I've enjoyed it every time.

WARNING: IF YOU BUY THIS GAME, YOU MAY NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY

I rate 10/10, because this game was such a good experience for me that many other single player RPG's make me cringe.

Moody and philosophical, brilliantly written and filled with multi-layered characters, immersive and emotionally involving, Knights of the Old Republic 2 is a fantastic game and one of the best stories in the Star Wars universe.

It has its share of flaws - the gameplay is rather dull, level design repetitive, graphics outdated even at the time of release. It was also originally released in an incomplete form, but this has since been fixed by a group of dedicated fan who created the The Sith Lords Restored Content Modification. Despite all the flaws, the game succeeds in what matters - sending the player on a memorable journey and leaving such an impact that all these years after its release I still can't get enough of it.

Hopefully, one day it will get a sequel it deserves.

This game has a lot of replay value - this is the game I enjoyed replaying the most back in the days! The thing I like the best is how all the dialogue makes the characters in this game really unique, and each playthrough might reveal something more.

This game offers a lot for it's price whether on sale or not. And it supports 16:9 widescreen, so I didn't need any 3rd party fix (Win7).

Love this game. Sure, its a little buggy to get it started, but there are plenty of guides to help fix that. Grab the cut content mod from the workshop, its well worh it.

Bought this as one of my first games for PC back in the day. Spent an ungodly amount of time on it. When I saw it on steam, I couldn't resist. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

So far I think the game is great, I wasn't expecting much after learning that LucasArts rushed the game, but after getting the Cut Content Mod from the Workshop, I am expecting the game to be better than what we got. I think I may have played Kotor 1 a little over a decade ago, never played 2 until buying for $2.49 during the current May the 4th be With You Sale. I do believe I would recommend this just based off what I have played. I know Bioware didn't make the game, but after playing Dragon Age you could never tell it was made by Obsidian Entertainment, especially since they had no idea how the first game went or anything. It's not often I find an RPG that makes me want to play more of it after I quit the game. Last game that did that was DE:HRDC.

Absolutely no disrespect to KOTOR 1, but just as obsidian made a better fallout game, so too they made a better KOTOR game. I didn't think it was possible, because I loved KOTOR 1. However! I have not actually finished this one to the end because the first time I played it, it was on disk and we lost the disk. On steam, I didn't finish it because of a bug. So be warned! Bugs are a part of this game. Get the Restored Content Mod, I hear it helps make the end feel less unfinished.

TLDR VERDICT
KOTOR 2 is a very worthy successor to the high bar set by the original game. They kept the general gameplay and presentation true the original and put their own unique spin on the story. Many people argue it is actually a superior game to the original. Overall, a rough, buggy and now dated, but still very entertaining game well worth the asking price if you’re a fan of the original or fan of Star Wars in general.

FULL REVIEW BELOW

“Take the greatest Jedi Knight, strip away the Force, and what remains? They rely on it, depend on it, more than they know. Watch as one tries to hold a blaster, as they try to hold a lightsaber, and you will see nothing more than a woman – or a man. A child.” - Kreia

Five years after the events of KOTOR, the galaxy is recovering from the events from the Jedi Civil War. Both the Jedi and Sith have now fallen silent. You have been exiled from the Jedi Order as punishment for following Revan into war against the Mandolorians. You have also been completely cut off from the Force, but was this a part of your punishment, or the result of something much worse?

This review is written from a huge Star Wars fan and a fan of story driven RPGs in general.

GAMEPLAY AND DESIGN
In terms of general gameplay and structure, KOTOR 2 is designed very similarly to the first game. It features the same turn-based D20 based combat system and character building as the first game and other old-school RPGs. This can be a quite daunting system to learn for those unfamiliar with these types of games, but fortunately the lower difficulty settings are forgiving enough for those without the patience or time to learn it. Combat is important, but arguably not as much as the stat and skill point distribution. Making sure you have characters with the appropriate skills determines being able to deal with obstacles in the world, conversation checks and crafting. The game does feature an automatic leveling up system which will do the leveling for you, which is fine in the late game after you have all the skills you need, but it may be worth doing some research in the early game for leveling up. The companions are all reasonably balanced and they level up with you, meaning that you can take anyone anywhere (at least from a gameplay perspective).

The game isn’t entirely open world by any means. It’s similar to KOTOR and Dragon Age: Origins, in the sense that you travel between several fairly small focused areas rather than one continuous land mass. The areas are either mostly linear action packed levels or slower paced story driven quest hub areas. Crafting is important system to pay attention to as you can craft item modifications to create weapons more powerful than the ones you find. This is a fairly simple system that involves breaking down items you don’t need for materials, but it’s just a case of knowing what the stats actually mean. Of course, on lower difficulties you can get away with not paying much attention to gear and stats and still just about get by spamming the same attacks. You won’t find it very challenging, but more than adequate for just seeing the story (which in my opinion, is the main draw of the game).

STORY AND NARRATIVE
It’s never easy to develop a follow up on such a beloved game from a different developer, but Obsidian certainly delivered on delivering a sequel that is true to the original and yet unique in its own way. KOTORs story felt very much like a grand space adventure and it captured everything that the classic Star Wars story should be. KOTOR 2 differs from this slightly. It tells a more subtle story with a focus on different themes. In stark contrast to KOTORs overt villains, KOTOR 2s threat is a lot more sinister. The battles with the Sith are fought in the shadows and the themes are a lot darker. An example of the darker tone is a reoccurring idea in the game that to the galaxy’s Average Joe, Jedi and Sith are indistinguishable. They just people with too much power fighting over religion and getting everyone else caught in the middle. This is a really unique and interesting idea and caught me completely off guard. Another good theme was the idea of the absence of the Force and the advantages it has aside from the obvious disadvantages.

The conversation system is identical to KOTOR, with the standard light and dark alignment options and the opportunities to use skills (if you have the stats) in certain special situations. In my opinion, morality is much more interesting in KOTOR 2 than in the first one. Picking light or dark and sticking to it not only changes the ending, but the entire game. It shifts your characters goals for the whole game and also effects the gameplay. Dark and light side powers become easier/harder (but not impossible) to do if you are the opposite morality and it can result in some rather large deviations on the story line during some quests. It also affects your companions and over time you can even begin to influence their morality (e.g. enlightenment vs corruption). Overall, I’d say the game changes enough to warrant multiple playthroughs with different morality choices.

On the topic of companions, you can expect yet another colourful crew of heroes, villains, droids and miscreants. They are very varied from the original games selection, but just as interesting and unique. Gameplay wise, they still have classes that need to have their stats properly assigned and equipped with the right gear. However, pretty much any configuration of companions is viable to take anywhere, which is good for the story. It makes it feel like you travel with ALL of your companions rather than just bringing your favourites and leaving everyone else on the ship. Your actions also influence your companions, resulting in them liking or disliking you more depending on how you act. Having them like you opens up more story and has gameplay benefits I can’t elaborate on without light spoilers.

A quick note on voice acting: personally I found a particular companions voice actor laughably bad (look out for the one-armed Iridonian), but he’s really the only one that stands out. The rest of the game is mostly either passable or excellent.

GAMEPLAY AND PERFORMANCE
As is customary with Obsidian games, they are often not given enough time for playtesting and optimisation leaving them somewhat lacking in the performance department. I expect you won’t encounter many problems these days however, as unsurprisingly an 11 year old game runs at 60fps 100% of time and doesn’t look half bad for its age. I did get a crash or two here and there and more than a fair share of bugs, but fortunately nothing game breaking or huge. I didn’t run into any compatibility problems either (running Windows 8.1).

Funnily enough, the game actually got a patch recently that fixed a lot of problems, added controller support, support for higher resolutions and some other fixes. The biggest change was the addition was the addition of Steam Workshop for the game, which allows the seamless installation of some mods that restores a whole bunch of content that was cut from the game. Look up The Sith Lords Restored Content mod if you get the game, but it should be the highest rated anyway.

52 hours well spent.
You play as an exile of the jedi council, you the player choose your own fate and allightment, not for you but your companions.

I especially like this game because it starts you off as a grey character not good or bad but on the blured boundary of good and bad and I like this because it lets me take my time in choosing my allignment (good or bad) instead of choosing your characters at the start like Star wars the Old Republic.

You start off with a case of amnesia, you find out that you were in the Mandalorian Wars and joined the Dark jedi Revan and Malak (from kotor 1 ) defying the Jedi council and this is what gets you to be exiled by the Jedi council and your ties to the force to be severed

not bothered to write anymore but you get the point its a good game :p

This game in my opinion is the best single player star wars game out there, but be warned you will never see the sunlight again, your nails will grow long and yellow, and your teeth will rot. But hey whatever, it's not like you'll be talking or seeing anyone when you're playing this and those long nails will only help reach the keyboard easier. XD
(When you have downloaded the game make sure you stop by the workshop and get the restore content mod, it restores missing dialogue, and whole bunch of other things that you NEED.)
P.S.Just get the damn game and stop reading this

Feel the Force playing the main character and seek the path of complete your knowledge about what happened to you and the Jedi Order

Introduction
For a Star Wars fan playing this game again, is a luxury. Old memories came back and how I defeated enemies for the first time. I remember the first time when I played it and the emotion of being part of the Geroge Lucas universe. Feeling the Force with these characters, no matter the side you choose, light or dark.

Every member of your group, every planet has a unique story and a continuity carefully created. The chance of gaining influence with your partners and unlock certain things you will discover during the game is being played is fantastic. One of the best ideas of Bioware we could see in other games like Mass Effect for example.

Here you play the Exile, a former Jedi knight who followed Revan during the Mandalorian wars finishing at the disaster of Malachor V. There's a lot of story about Malachor V and almost a taboo among survivors. Only 5 years passed during that terrible war where the Republic suffered a great peril. You wake up in a station called "Peragus" and something is not there. Your powers. And the quest for recovering your connection with the Force starts there. What you do will have great repercussions in the galaxy.

There are a lot of history background at the missions, and there is a big plot in the whole game and the main character is the center of this plot, and maybe others, who knows?

Gameplay
You can play a male or female character and depend on what you'll have different partners and romantic options. Also, the dark or light side will affect some of the decisions you'll take. You even can change the perspective in the middle of the game, I tried and worked. If I'm not mistaken, I played this game like 8 times. Yes, I'm a big fan.
You don't do Star Wars? No problem at all. No matter the knowledge of the Old or new Republic, the Force and those issues, this is one of the best roleplaying games. And you'll have to try it if you like RPGs.

The player has to think very carefully the decisions, you don't even know when you can gain dark or light side points. That will allow you to gain certain powers or not. Also gaining influence with the onboard characters could jeopardize these points or even influence with opposing members of the group.

Comparing with the award winner, Knights of the Old Republic I think this second part is even more polished than the first but the previous one seems to have more choices in travel options.

The skills and powers are well established. What I don't understand why a light side could use dark side powers. Of course, Force Storm is the best attack power, and there are some light side powers who will protect you from attacks.

They never fixed some glitches and bugs, there are one in a cave of Korriban where you can get a lot of experience, also, there's a bug. You find Kreia and after the scene if you don't have a telepathic communication with her you'll be trapped there.

I have to mention something about music and graphics. comparing actual games graphics are not the coolest, but this is an AAA game, and had the best graphics in their time.

The soundtrack is one of the best I ever listened in my life. It's just precise and perfect for every moment. I'll make a special mention about the music in Malachor V, fantastic. Try to play that part in the dark and listen carefully. Amazing and a little bit creepy.

Pros
+ Star Wars, I mean it.
+ In my opinion, the best RPG made of the franchise
+ The richness story of every companion
+ The story of the main character is a great one, full of question and not always a proper answer
+ A great soundtrack

Cons
- They never fixed many glitches and bugs. I remember years ago costs me to start the game again. So, save!
- There's a no return point if you had some extra quests to finish. Don't go to Dantooine Enclave after the mercenaries attack.
- You'll have to replay the game and pay attention to complete all achievements

Final Thoughts
As I said before I loved this game. Not only because is a Star wars game, is one of the best Roleplaying Games I ever played. It's quite immersive game, in a Republic at the point of disaster, you in the skin of someone who want answers. There are a lot to explore and you¡'ll have to play several times to know everything of your party members.
Play it. Maybe it's an old game but today we don't have this great plot and storytelling in a game.

Rating: 9/10

May the Force be with you

An incredible follow up to KOTOR. While the early game is a slog, the mid-game is the biggest chunk and it is incredible. So much to do, new powers and stances to work with, and an intriguing story. The end game is somewhat disjointed, but anyone who knows about the checkered history of this game knows the reasoning for that, and should not be deterred. Just download the Restored Content Mod, and all is well :).

If you loved Knights of the Old Republic and you're into philosophy, morals, and wide, somewhat cynical worldviews, you will love The Sith Lords. (However, it is almost essential that you play it with the Restored Content Mod.) Where the films and the first game treat good and evil as if they were black and white, this game paints every decision past and present as various greys. This is Star Wars Noir - difficult to digest and somewhat bitter.

Like the previous game, it is slow in parts, but this is one of the deepest and profound stories I've experienced. Heck, it's even somewhat meta. The first game is bombastic and grand - quintessential Star Wars. This one is subdued and brooding and it shows in the colour palate, the music, and the mood of your companions.

May the Force be with you? Must it? Is the Force even worth it if it just seems to cause suffering to ripple outwards from well-meaning Jedi?

Game is amazing, a tense story and the great gameplay people know from KotoR. Finished the game within one week, which pretty much ruined that week for me.. But in a good way.

Definitely recommended to every roleplaying game lover.

The game itself is amazing, I can't find or see any reason not to get it.
Don't regret spending 10 euro on it.

Loved this game. The sheer amount of content in this game has made me play it several times through, and I've enjoyed it every time.

WARNING: IF YOU BUY THIS GAME, YOU MAY NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY

I rate 10/10, because this game was such a good experience for me that many other single player RPG's make me cringe.

Love this game. Sure, its a little buggy to get it started, but there are plenty of guides to help fix that. Grab the cut content mod from the workshop, its well worh it.

Bought this as one of my first games for PC back in the day. Spent an ungodly amount of time on it. When I saw it on steam, I couldn't resist. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Absolutely no disrespect to KOTOR 1, but just as obsidian made a better fallout game, so too they made a better KOTOR game. I didn't think it was possible, because I loved KOTOR 1. However! I have not actually finished this one to the end because the first time I played it, it was on disk and we lost the disk. On steam, I didn't finish it because of a bug. So be warned! Bugs are a part of this game. Get the Restored Content Mod, I hear it helps make the end feel less unfinished.
