Finally after 8 years Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords has made its way to Steam. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, KOTOR2 takes place five years after the events of the first title. You play as the “Exile” who must restore his/her connection to the force while being hounded by both Sith and bounty hunter alike.
KOTOR2 contains brilliant writing and character development while adding a much-needed depth to the Star Wars universe. It starts out on a bad footing by thrusting the player into the somewhat bland and confusing Peragus facility, but from there on it builds upon itself and takes advantage of the vast universe at its disposal. It’s a game that relies on the gameplay Bioware used in the original KOTOR, but the story and unique moral choices are what make the game so unique and compelling.
Though unfinished and buggy, the community have since rectified most of these problems by releasing fixes and content mods such as The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM).
Though it’s been sadly retconned to make way for the abomination that was Biowares recent MMO, that shouldn’t stop you from trying out one of the best Star Wars/RPG title of the decade.
