Fortunately, there's a mod to fix all of that.

Anybody playing (or reviewing!) KOTOR 2 today should install that mod first. In my opinion it turns one of the most frustrating games I've ever played into one of the very best.

I don't remember it being THAT buggy.

It had new features which IMO improved on the first, but it also wasn't as good in other areas.
Overall I still loved it, and do intend on replaying it with that mod when I can commit the time I want to so I can just live them both :D

There were several quests you couldn't complete e.g. getting fuel for Telos station, which had a large knock-on effect later on. The bugs were ironed out with patches, but anything that was missing content was left untouched, until the mod community took on the task of fixing it.

It's definitely worth installing the mod for a replay.

The only thing I really feel the second game lacks is a good romance sub plot; the first game options were Carth and Bastilla, both of whom were a little annoying at times but generally well rounded characters that had integral parts to play in the story. The second game romance options felt crowbarred (it's a word, promise) in at the last minute and none of them sat very well with the characters I played.

There's a very pretty remake, only available for Gamecube and Wii, called "Resident Evil Remake" (GC) / "Resident Evil Archives" (Wii).

Tie fighter is the best Star Wars game. Here's to wishing in vain for an HD remake.

It's almost old enough the be in need of an HD remake itself, though. The lighting etc was great but the gamecube resolution is a bit painful on the eyes these days. Looked a lot better on my blurry 14'' TV.

I see Battlefront 1 and 2 have been missed from the list, i really loved both of these games and played them all the time. They are quite basic compared to the equivalent battlefield games of the time and the later cod series, but that was always the appeal for me. Very easy to have a quick play without the need to level up your player constantly.

In regards to what the article said about the fight with Malak dragging on interminably - it doesn't have to. It is actually rather easy to take him down if you prevent him from replenishing his health. You simply run around with him chasing you while using an ability like advanced lightsaber throw or force lightning on the pods, thus preventing him for being a big cheater and regening after you just spent 5 minutes bashing the watsits out of him.

Freaking awesome game as is the second game! I've played them both sooooo many times. Hooray for the modders out there! Meant I could get a slightly different experiance each time.

Liked the mention of SWGB (Galactic Battlegrounds), was confused of the lack of mention of Battlefront.
