Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 has been out of print for awhile, which is strange when you consider how popular the original game was. Well, if you missed out on the Jedi Outcast’s adventures back in 2004, you can now pick up KoTOR2 for a mere $10.
Is KoTOR2 as good as the original game? No, not really. But then again, what is? It’s still a decent enough RPG in it’s own right, but some words of warning if you haven’t played KoTOR2 before: the game completely falls apart in its final chapter — if you thought Mass Effect 3’s ending was lazy, you’ll likely explode with nerd-rage when you see KoTOR2’s half-assed finale — and the game is woefully unbalanced. Darth Nihilus sure looks imposing on the game’s box, but the fight against him is… well, don’t blink or you might miss this “climactic” battle.
Then again, I did play though this game on the original Xbox, and I hear that the PC game has a number of fan-made patches that address KoTOR2’s issues. Like I said, it’s still a fun game, even if it’s a fair bit more unpolished than the original, and at only $10, there’s no excuse to not give it a try. At the very least, it should tide broke Star Wars fans over until The Old Republic goes free to play.
