|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...

Customer Reviews of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: Sith Lords
Worthy sequel to KOTOR3/11/2005
If you enjoyed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, you will enjoy this sequel as well. The story line is fantastic and compelling, especially the new influence system that allows you to manipulate your teammates into reflecting your alignment, dark side or light side. Like the first, this game almost seems to encourage you to play the Dark Side, and in most cases is the easiest campaign. It makes a difference in the storyline whether you are dark or light, and encourages you to play the game again to see the opposing side (light/dark) and there's even differences in playing male/female. Highly recommended for excellent story, gameplay, and 60hrs+ for each campaign.
KOTOR II Not as Good as original1/4/2005
If you can survive the incredibly tedious boring beging of the game, it get interestg after 20 hours of play. The game play is just like the origianl. Currently, I've lost my current game because the poor programming has made all text gibberish. I've read on the forums some have finished it and though it was so so. Expect a lot of bugs. This game was rushed.
