Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is the next chapter to the award winning game of 2003. Set in the unique timeframe of the Old Republic, 4,000 years before Star Wars Episode I, The Sith Lords features an all-new more perilous storyline, new characters, classes, locations and force powers.
Approximately five years after the events of the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, the Jedi, nearly brought to an end by the Sith, are on the brink of extinction. The galaxy is in turmoil and the Republic no longer has the strength to protect its worlds. Sith Assassins are hunting the one they believe to be the last of the Jedi, the one who holds the key to the fate of the galaxy - You.
In addition to an all-new storyline, The Sith Lords will feature a host of memorable returning characters along with sinister new villains. Using over 30 new Force powers, players can turn weak-minded enemies against one another in combat with Force Confusion or see through doors and view character alignment with Force Sight. Players can also explore and battle their way through seven diverse worlds, including the mining colony of Peragus and Telos, a wasteland being rebuilt after its destruction during the war in the original game.
After creating a Jedi from the start with access to specific Jedi abilities, players can split their party to use several characters from your team for concurrent side quests. Tasked with protecting the Old Republic and the Jedi Order from its ultimate demise, players will be challenged with choosing the light side of the Force or surrendering to the lure of the dark side - as the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance...

 Very good sequel, but...

| | See all garyfitz's reviews (5)

I was rather annoyed when I heard that BioWare decided against doing the sequel, after the monumental job they did with the first. Apparently they had an iffy experience working with the Publisher LucasArts, and they decided to go and create their own IP's. So Obsidian Entertainment, who BioWare recommended to LucasArts, took over the mantle for the second game in the series.

You'll find right from the start, that the game is a lot darker and much more mysterious than the first game. You play a new character, the Exile, who served Revan during the Mandalorian Wars. When Revan turned on the Republic, he joined Revan and fought against the Republic forces. Eventually, you come to realise the error of your ways and you return to face the Jedi Council on Dantooine. They strip you of your powers, and you are exiled from the order. You spend the next 10 or so years wandering the outer rim of the galaxy, keeping a low profile. (the game is set 5 years after the original)

And this is where you pick off. The game starts off in an all too familiar fashion. (You wake up on a ship and had a memory loss etc etc) And for the first 6/7 hours, you really dont know why and where you are. You're main goal is to escape the place safely, and once you do that, everything becomes a little clearer.

There are certain things I liked and didnt like about KOTOR2. The gameplay was much improved for one. You'll find levelling up is a lot easier and quicker, and because of that you'll get a lot of force powers from the early stages of the game. This makes it a lot more fun, but does make the game a bit too easy.

The NPC characters are very good. Again like in the first, during quests in each of the planets you'll build a team mixed with characters with all sorts of special skills. You dont really form a bond with any of the characters though, and you always feel rather suspicious of them. There's very little trust, and you're always weay of what everyone is up to. This is what I meant about the game being a bit darker and more mysterious in the first.

The game lacks a good romance too. In the first, the romance with Bastila/Carth played a massive role in the storyline for a lot of people. But there are no real engaging romances in KOTOR2, which is slightly disappointing. The story feels some what less engaging than the first because of this.

The storyline is solid, but it's very incomplete. The ending is very hard to understand, and it's pretty poor unsatisfying to be honest. I guarantee when you see the closing creditscome on screen at the end of the game, you'll go "That cant be it!??". The truth of the matter is LucasArts told Obsidian to finish the game in just 14 months(this was to get the game out in time for Xmas 04) and because of this, the game suffered. There was a lot of cut content, including quests, cutscenes, and dialagous. There are a lot of annoyings bugs aswell.

I'm sure, that if LucasArts had of given Obsidian the time they gave BioWare to do the first, that the game would of been admired as an excellent sequel. Obsidian did an excellent job with it, and if there is to be a KOTOR3, I would be very happy if they were to do it.

So in the end, if you played the first and loved it, you almost have to at least try this. I found the first playthrough rather disappointing, but on my second playthrough I enjoyed it more. There's a different structure for the game than the first, and it might take some getting used to before you can really appreciate the game. Some will like it, others mightnt.

 One star, because this game is deeply flawed

All the way through I felt that this game was as good as the first, however it falls apart so badly in the end that you feel that the whole thing was a waste of time.
Whole storylines are thrown away, missions are left incomplete with no chance of completing them, none of the characters' story arcs reach a satisfying conclusion, and the cliffhanger is...well, just not a cliff hanger.
The intrigue that the first half of the game builds up is completely ruined, and I felt cheated after completing this game - so much so that I actually checked online to see if I had a faulty copy of the game.
Avoid.

 works on the xbox 360

star wars knights of the old republic works on the xbox 360 no code needed great stuff

 The Greatest Game Ever???

| | See all ultimategamer81's reviews (3)

Although quite dated now I still find time to turn on my old Xbox and play on KOTOR, especially after I completed SW : TFU, which was awful to say the least.

This game has it all and a real shame that we have no others like it on the 360, a sequel to the sequel must be on the agenda coz it could be a game of the year nominee..........

All in all KOTOR is well put together, storyline is brilliant although the graphics are not great now, in the day they were something else and to be fair this game took a long time to complete, took me a few months to really get into it and finally complete.

A truly fantastic game that needs a redux on the 360.
