Eight_Nunb Posted August 2, 2005 Share Posted August 2, 2005 Obsidian did a good job, but i prefer KOTOR 1. If not for the easy combat difficulty & lack of villain storyline it may have been better than KOTOR 1. Here's some complains i had with KOTOR 2, mixed w/ some suggestions for KOTOR 3 : - THIS GAME IS WAY TOO FREAKIN' EASY DURING THE MIDDLE 2/3 OF THE GAME!!!! Arrrg! This was my biggest complaint of KOTOR 2. After you finish the 2nd or 3rd planet, you are an unstoppable juggernaut and combat is just so boring and easy even on 'Difficult' setting. Adding the new lightsaber forms and Force forms was very cool, but i never used them because i could slice through enemies so easily no matter what i used. I realize its hard to balance the game b/c a player can visit any player at any time during the game. But PLEASE include a difficulty setting that gives the game a challenge no matter how far you are into the game etc. KOTOR 2 needed a extra, higher difficulty setting. This nearly spoiled the game for me. - My second big complaint: Not enough story revolved around the villains of the game in KOTOR2. We rarely saw them, let alone fought them. They rarely showed up in any cut-scenes, battles etc. Contrast this with KOTOR 1 when Malak was constantly appearing in the story etc. Its hard to make compelling villains when you hardly develop their them. - Obviously, the graphics were a let-down. Very little improvement. I still can't believe this game doesn't have 'moving clouds' in the sky yet! A bunch of PS1 games have moving clouds, as do most early PS2 games. Craptacular textures on some of the city planets (buildings mostly). - Bring back the "new items" tab in the menu. That was handy in KOTOR 1 to see things i just picked up qithout scrolling forever. - Make T3 stronger and actually playable! He's so wimpy. Obsidian actually had to make an all-T3 or 2 mission just so we'd get a chance to play him. Instead of forcing us to play him, why not have us WANT to play T3? I would suggest maybe giving T3 a power/ability that no other character has and that you need to use on some missions. - Please include more force powers for KOTOR 3, and improve the current ones. How about when using 'force-choke', the enemy actually floats off the ground and grabs his neck ala Vader like in Jedi Outcast. - Not enough regular, single-bladed lightsabers found in the game. Why does one of my main Jedi characters still use a short lightsaber when i'm 80% through the game? - There still aren't enough opportunities or reasons to use mines in the game. Maybe because the game was too easy? - How about some epic, large-scale, many-enemy battles in KOTOR 3? (see: Geonosis jedi battle in Ep2: AOTC). - The music was very good in KOTOR2, better than KOTOR 1. However, how about a few songs from the movies thrown in? Or even some remixed John Williams tunes? The soundtrack player was a GREAT addition! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
