Not bad - not as much like Kotor as I'd hoped, but similar enough to keep me going. Kind of like having a Nicorette(sp?) patch when you're trying to quit smoking, except I don't want to quit playing Kotor.

Yeah it's a good game, but I was halfway through it when I got my 360. It's backwards compatible but I'd have to start all over again.

I do really like this game and have done since I first got it. I just need to remember where I've put it (and install the limited edition features) and get back to playing it again.

Bioware games are, I suspect, designed so that you can only do really well if you've already played through it once, or if you're psychic.

Like when I was choosing a character and unless I bothered to read the manual (which I didn't) I had to make a blind choice as to what kind of Chi, Focus and Body I wanted.

Much like when I first played Kotor and got thrown by talk of Intellegence, Wisdom, Charisma and all that.

So really, in order to build a good character on a Bioware game, with all the correct styles or whatever the equivalent might be, you have to play it through several times.

I'm going through it now & have to say it's a top game. Not the best RPG I've played but still top. I don't know how far I'm through it now but I have a minor problem with it. There are so many styles to choose from but not enough leveling to power them up. It's like you're resricted to four & you'd better get them right the first time. What if you get something proper halfway through the game? Well by that time it takes pissing ages to level up so you have no chance of maxing it out.


That does provide some replay value though, maxing out some other s**t. That along with the different last night before the battle scenario's 8)

He has got a point though consider the game is over quickly, before you know it your up against the final boss.

It's far too easy too.

I just finished, and I agree - it is far too easy and far too short. However, there is one character that I found particularly hilarious. I was certainly not expecting to hear that...particular voice...in a Bioware game. Classic! :lol:

Well at least I was trying not to ruin it for other people.

It was pteradactyling hilarious though. The moment he opened his mouth, I had to flip through the manual to find the credits to check whether or not I was hearing things right.

I was waiting for a parrot. Or maybe an Italian guy.
