roshan Posted September 4, 2005 Share Posted September 4, 2005 So far Ive been playing kotor and it seems to be an ok game. The quests are good since they require you to make moral decisions, with the choice you make affecting your alignment, which is good. The writing of the dialogue is average and is on par with other bioware games. However it seems that the game has departed from the baldurs gate 2 style dialogues where you get the same reply no matter what option you select, which is anoither good thing. The worst part of the game however is the repetitive combat that seems to be a feature of most bioware games. In baldurs gate 1, you fought the same wolf or the 3 gibberlings over and over again..... In tob, the same mage fight again and again. Nwn was filled with repetitive fights. For example in the district which was overrun by prisoners you have to keep going through the same battle again and again with the same prisoners. Kotor has maintained this bioware tradition. The game was actually enjoyable until I got to the lower city. Then things started to degenerate. The same battle with the vulkar gang members kept occuring, followed by the same battle again and again with the rakghouls, then those green aliens in the sewers. Now I am in the military base and it seems that I will be fighting the same sith soldiers for several more hours. This has made the game unberably boring for me. While the roleplaying seems to be the best of any bioiware game so far, in fact, it seems to be much better than the rest, the combat, which forms a huge portion of the game, is extremely boring. Another problem is that a lot oif the graphics are repeated again and again. This makes the areas very boring to explore as many rooms, dooris etc look the same. For example the north and south upper taris are exactly the same except turned around, and the cantinas in upper and lower taris are the same down to each furniture, and in the sewers you keep seeing the same round room with the 3 exits, and the entire taris seems toi use the exact same gates/doors. Due to this I never know where I am and always get lost oir turned around. Does it get any better, or will most oif the game consist of playing the same battles again and again in areas which all look pretty much the same?
