 Star Wars Kotor 2 Review - GamersHell.com
The original Knights of the Old Republic was a huge moneymaker for both Bioware and Lucasarts, and this new game has done so well already thus far on both XBOX and PC pre-order that a sequel is almost a given.
In these respects, Knights of the Old Republic II is a more than worthy successor to its storied parent, and is especially strong with its new characters and the choices it allows the player to make in both dealing with the world and in dealing with the members of the party.
The original Knights of the Old Republic had two clearly defined paths of morality: The side of 'good' and 'moral' choices, termed 'the light side', and the path of selfish, 'evil', and often downright sadistic choices, better known as 'the dark side'.

 IGN: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Review
Developed by Bioware, Knights of the Old Republic is stronger with The Force than any George Lucas-powered movie that's come out in the last 20 years and lands on the PC as one of the very best titles the system has to offer after a sterling launch on the Xbox.
And the best part about this is, while the game may have the approach of a port, they actually fixed the interface to be fully functional and better for the PC as well as improving the graphics immensely, planting more items, and adding a new area that the Xbox version didn't have.
You'll also pick up an old Jedi master who's spent most of his life as a hermit but is still powerful with The Force as well as a young and angry Jedi from the academy.
