LB's KOTOR II Quick Review
More Jedi action coming at you!
I have to say, I'm tempted to link to our original KOTOR review
and simply say "ditto", as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2
is a pure sequel. The only new aspect to the Star Wars RPG is the story (and, therefore, a few characters). Normally, this would a detriment to a game, but when it comes to the KOTOR series, why mess with perfection? Sure, I could have taken slightly improved graphics, and I definitely could have done without the handful of glitches (far fewer than the original, but still there are enough glitches to almost qualify them as a character), but the game is a beautiful video gaming experience, as was the original.
It is five years after the events of the original KOTOR
(and thousands of years before the movies). Due to a Jedi Civil War, which broke out partially due to your actions in the original, there are very few Jedi left. You, yourself, were exiled by the Jedi Council, who has since disbanded, but you have been discovered by the Sith. You need answers and you need them now.
will take you to many familiar planets, and many more new planets. Personally, I got the most enjoyment on planets I knew from the original game, which have since been destroyed in the Jedi Civil War. I couldn't help but imagine the good time the game's designers had turning their original designs into ruins. Like the original, you will find yourself in many environments, from sterile cities, to grassy plains, to icy palaces, to molten caves. Whatever your environmental fancy, you'll find it in KOTOR II.
Gameplay of this real-time turn-based RPG is exactly as it was in the original. If you're playing the series for the first time, it may take some getting used to (stick with it, it's worth it), but if you're returning to the series, you'll fall right into it. The menus, I believe, are exactly the same, as is the battle system.
Again, you will have an opportunity to chose to play as a Light Side character (doing good) or a Dark Side character (doing evil), based on the decisions you make through the game. The decisions you make determine the game you play, which gives the game a tremendous amount of replay value. While the main goals of the game remain the same, how you achieve these goals is often determined by your Force alignment. Also, Light Side players and Dark Side players are privvy to certain Force Powers, again upping the game's replay value. Considering this game is, on average, a 35 hour experience (more if you do all of the Bonus Missions), this is about the only game truly worth the $50 price tag video games go for these days. Buy it. You'll like it.
