'Cuna: KotOR2 is awesome, once you get past the mining station and first planet it really starts to pick up. I made a hybrid Guardian/Jedi Master to be efficient in all kinds of combat. The only downside is that there is not really as big of a split ending depending on your choices as in KotOR1. The storyline is better though, in my opinion.



I can see where it is leading me but I'm not sure how much longer I have. I feel I'm on the downswing of the game (2nd half) but I'll keep you informed.

Oh, I went through JE twice now. Playing once on each side. The first time around the game took roughly 32 hours to beat, although the vast majority of that was sitting through dialogue and actually listening to the voice acting. The second time around it only took me 22 hours to beat, as I already knew the solutions to the side quests and few "puzzles" (I use the term loosely) in the game, and I just skimmed the dialogue instead of listening to it.

It's a very fun game for any KoTOR fan. The fighting system is far superior to KoTORs due to the vast number of options you have.. but once you've played around with the combat system a bit, it's very easy to mix styles and cheese your way through fights without taking a hit. I was a little dissapointed at how easy it was to completely immobilize an enemy (including the bosses, who would have been VERY tough otherwise) and not get hit a single time.

The story was entertaining and relatively deep, albeit cliched. There was actually a good deal of pretty accurate Chinese mythology and geography applied to the game, although it's all under the guise of a created continent (the Jade Empire and Far East) for artistic license.

To be honest, I'd wait until it goes into the bargain bins or buy it used. Being a huge fan of asian culture/history, cheesy martial arts flicks, and KoTOR I may be a bit biased in my love for the game.. and I can certainly see how someone less enthusiastic about even one of those subjects could be annoyed at dropping $50 on a game as short as this. (Fable flashbacks, anyone?)

I dropped 30 on Fable, and I'm still pissed. Don't get me wrong... awesome game... but 10 hours to beat? Kind of lame.

I was a huge KOTOR fan, and I liked (but not loved) KOTOR II, but I agree... dropping 50 on a 20-30 hour game is kind of a waste. When it drops to 30 I'll probably nab it.

Thanks mucho for the info, Tyr ;-D

Damn no1, I did forget. I think it took me around 28 or so to get through it the first time and I am in the middle of round two. Decent story line, lots of setup for the lore of the land. This is pretty good though if they make this into a franchise as you learn a lot about this new world you are in.

I enjoyed the game and found even though you do primarily the same things the 2nd time through the difference in fighting styles keeps it fresh. I played a fast "evil" chick with a spear first and now I have a magic wielding "good" monk who rains down death like I never imagined the first time around.
