KOTOR 2: Not as good as the original

Another one of those "good, but not as good" KOTOR 2 reviews. The new 4.5/5 review is posted at About Xbox

If you are a fan of the first Knights of the Old Republic, you’ll definitely enjoy KOTOR II: The Sith Lords. There are a lot of little problems, though, that result in this one not being as good as the original. It is still very good and worth playing, but more is expected of sequels and developer Obsidian simply didn’t deliver. I’m sure it is because they didn’t want to screw anything up since KOTOR was so very good, but making only minimal changes to the gameplay and leaving the sub-par graphics and tons of glitches alone is just not going to cut it.

That said, this is still a must play game. There is a lot more combat this time around, and using a lightsaber is simply a lot of fun. The overall storyline isn’t as satisfying as the original, but it brings up a lot of philosophical questions and will teach you a lot about the Jedi so it is very interesting if you are a Star Wars fan. KOTOR II takes around 40 hours to beat, and you will likely want to play it multiple times (at least once each on the dark and light paths) so I recommend it for a purchase. Give it a rental if you aren’t sure, but you’ll likely end up buying it anyway.

Disappointing. Everyone keeps saying about minimal changes and "more of the same", including technical issues, nature of the game. Doesn't stop them from giving it high scores though.
