    Im thinking of buying KOTOR2 to play on my 360 until mass effect comes out

    Are the graphics terrible and does it play ok on the 360?

    I thought that the 3 (kotor 1 and 2 and jade empire) games where fantastic and probably some of the best games ive ever played. Its rare that a game grabs me and makes me want to finish it. Which i did with all 3.

    KOTOR2 is a very good game, but I cant see the graphics holding up well at all on the 360 given what we are used to now.

    If it was me, I would wait for Mass Effect though, and possibly go for Oblivion ? which (if you dont have it) is a far better game.

    KotOR 1 is much better though, so I'd go for that first.

    I concur with Chrislad although Kotor II is in no way a bad game.

    They are cheap enough now, and whilst they might not look great anymore, they both (KOTOR I+II) play brilliantly...

    Get em :)

    Forget KOTOR 2, Go get KOTOR now! That is my favorite game of all time.

    Good graphics or not, KOTOR is amazing!

    Fully agree with the above. I dont even like Star Wars and found them two of the best games I've ever played. JE was great too, certainly up there with the KotOR games.

    KotOR II isnt as good as the original mind you, as BioWare didnt do it, but it's still a great game and definately worthy of a purchase.

    I'd suggest playing the original 1st though.

    Kotor and Jade Empire both solid five star games.

    Kotor II more of a four star game. It's still a really good game it's just hard to measure up to the first one. And as a previous poster said wasn't made by Bioware (but still looks/plays the same).

    It wasn't developed by the same team and some feel this had a bearing on the final product.

    Personally i thought both were stunning (and superior to Jade Empire). I think many remember the first so fondly simply because it was such a landmark title - a Star Wars game that was actually good and a RPG to boot.

    The first was SOOO good that it's a bit like second albums/seasons etc. They can only be a little disappointing because of peoples expectations. The sequel would still be in my top 5 XBox games though.

    For me the main reason KOTOR was better is it was finished properly. If you look into it I believe the people who did the 2nd game were pressured to finish the game and as a result cut some bits of the story which towards the end mean it can be a little disjointed. In my mind its still a great game but the 1st was perfectly paced with a great story. The 2nd game was too slowly paced in the beginning (7 hours of grind) and its story doesn't mesh quite as well. If the 1st KOTOR had never been released my criticisms of the game would have been ignored so they really aren't too much of an issue.

    I'll be finished KOTOR2 very soon but i was wondering is KOTOR a seperate story or does KOTOR2 follow on from it?

    I basically dont want to play KOTOR if KOTOR2 is a follow on from the 1st one as I will already know what will happen in KOTOR2 and KOTOR's story wont seem as good

    if someone could clarify this for me

    KOTOR2 is a great game by the way

    KOTOR2 is kind of a follow on story but the end is different depending on the path you take and the story is still worth playing for. I played through it twice even without any achievements to go for, thats 40 hours of gaming effectively.

    Both games are excellent and I am normally not a fan of RPG games but these kept me enthralled. I would like to see kotor 3 on Xbox 360.

    I know Mass Effect is from the same publisher and looks excellent. I have it pre ordered, but I would still like to see the story continued in a 3rd Kotor game.

    I know what you mean, but the storys havent been continued in the 2 games anyway.

    The characters where all new and not previous star wars characters so id imagine mass effect will be the same game minus the millenium falcon style ship and light sabers (which i will definiflty miss)

    The 2 story archs were linked and there was some characters in both (droids), it wasn't a sequel like most but there was some story crossover.
