KOTOR was an absolutely great game, giving players THE BEST Star Wars experience to date. KOTOR 2 had a hard act to follow and while it was developed by Obsidian, the game is still considered to be one of the best Star Wars games ever. The prologue immediately refreshes players with the buttons and menus but almost everything remains essentially the same. The graphics have been slightly updated but not by much, which is not a problem since the game is still nice to look at. Sound is the best here, with hours and hours of dialogue, with excellent sound effects that make you believe that you're in a Star Wars movie. There are some new upgrades like the influence system which isn't outlined as clearly but effects if your companions like you more or not basically. The best thing about this game is that you battle THREE Sith Lords, instead of one in the first game. The only complaints is that LucasArts shouldn't have rushed this game to meet deadlines due to the many bugs and that the movie cut-scenes seem kind of blurry (though this is fixed now). Overall, an excellent sequel to an excellent game.
