A truly awesome experience, Bioware have done it again after the brilliance of KOTOR. This game takes many of the best features of KOTOR and improves upon them and in many ways this feels like more of sa sequel to that game than the disapointing (and frankly baffling) KOTOR 2 did. What can i say, superb graphics, amazing sound and voice acting and one of the most fun combat systems ever. The game also has the best twist since Deus Ex (much better than KOTOR's rather obvious revelation in the middle).
Downsides, well maybe its a tad too short (tho it took me 40 hours to complete), and at times I found myself yearning for some Morrowind-esq freedom. Still overall well worth buying. Its still a tad behind KOTOR in my affection as it doesn't quite match the scale of that story but nonetheless is nearly flawless.
One final message to all, once you finish it, make sure you run the whole of the credits for some truly hilarious dialogue from some of the main characters!!
not as good as i thought
i had read all the hype for this game and was really exited to get it but it dosnt live up to what i thought it would.
the combat and storyline are brilliant but there is two much talking, the game just dosn't shut up and you can get board pretty easly. the best way to fight this is to leave it for a week and come back to it.
i would give it 7 out of 10 and its best to rent it first.
It was good but could've been better. I completed it in two days and the similarities to the two Star Wars : KOTOR games are very very noticeable. At one point in the game it turned into fight, cut scene, fight, cut scene, fight, cutscene, dialogue, fight! With nothing to do. The loading screens are often and do take a while and once you reach a certain point in the game there is no going back to finish off your quests.
HOWEVER, this is a good game with a good plot that has a massive twist at what I thought was the end of the game. End of the game my ass I was only halfway through!!! The combat is fun and the interface is simple. The story is involving and the characters are really well thought out.
Two criticisms of the actual game though, it would've been nice to have stats on the fighting styles so you know if one is better than the other or are they all the same until you level them up... some hints please? And the followers, usage please? I did find usage for one of them in support mode but their combat skills are sorely laking. Red Dawn as a fighter is not very good but it's not like you have any control over leveling them up.
When you complete it, and you will quite quickly, LISTEN to the credits... brilliant...
