I fell in love with KOTOR I, and I am not a gamer! But I do love the whole Star Wars universe. While I have played a lot of the SW games, I have to admit I haven't enjoyed many of them very much.
KOTOR I however is a fabulous game. The graphics were great, the story line compelling, you didn't often find yourself wandering around at a loss for what to do and the controls were "tight". The story was so compelling that you found yourself playing it for hours just to find out what happens next, as there is always a twist...
I eagerly awaited KOTOR II and was one of the first to buy it. KOTOR II however is a big let down. The story line is very weak, confusing at times and the ending is just plain terrible. Who did they get to write this? Somebody who doesn't have a tenth of the ability of the original writer. When I got to the ending I just stared at the screen in huge disappointment - I had spent how many hours to get that?! My daughter who was also playing along was so disgusted she never did finish it and my son, just said forget it and never did play it.
That said the game play itself was good, and they have made some refinements in the mechanics of the game that make sense and do improve the overall game experience. However the game control is "loose". Sorry I can't make it clearer than that so its harder to get your character to the exact point you want. The graphics are not as crisp nor do they have as full colour.
So overall I have to say I was very disappointed with this game, and I wouldn't recomend it......:-(
