What the!!???, I just got the game yesterday and I've been playing ever since. You guys finnished the game with level 40 characters???? You're telling me that there is no level cap. What the **** was the point in that? I mean, in the last game you could get to level 20 and would still find it hard to play the game then, unless you planned out your character very well before. This just takes out an entire part of the RPG that made the first game so good for me. Planning my character.
Tell me what is the point of putting in all these force powers and feats and features like AC and the will, reflex and fort. saves when the player will not even use them (If you guys are honest then all it should take is one hit from your character). And now I also read that the game was rushed and not finished! Tell you what Obsidian, I'm gonna play this game, but if it sucks, well ... you all beter stay away from the UK.
I can't realy judge yet, but I do know that I'm still in the first area (begins with P) and even though there is lots of information bombarding the player, it is not remotely as involving as Kotor I. I mean theres so much stuff in the game already, like influence being introduced, 2 extra characters already on my team, some sort of medical workbench, what the hell is that, I have no idea. And I'm only at the point where (spoiler
I DESTROY THAT GREY ROBOT.
I had decided not to level up my character until I would reach a point where I would gain my prestige class, because I though that the game would be like the first Kotor (where you would become a jedi only later) and I always like to be the best I can be so I saved levels (God that was a great game). But now that I have found out that you become prestige at a certain level not a point in the story and that there are unlimited levels I realise that there is really no point in doing that. But my point is that even so, I am finding it extremely easy to kill anything. I gained flurry from the beginning with my counselor and I just use that, and I have -1 modifiers at everything except wisdom(4), charisma (3.5) and dexterity (-0.1). And think of this, I might as well have a -1 for everything since I'm not using my spells as I am only at level 1.
Flurry here (kill a robot with two shots, for some reason), run away , character heals by himself, (for some reason), a grenade once in a while. And its all over. And now I have my team members, Its all a joke.
PS: I'm playiong on hard, and I shall be leveling my character from now on, and might start a new game (depending on what I read about the game's mechanics in the next hour).
But someone please tell me this, can a character reach 50 DC for force powers in this game.
I almost cried when I realised that this was only possible on the PC version of Kotor I and not the Xbox (which I had).
And also, what are the rewards for Light/dark side mastery in this game, if there are any, and also which sidekick characters cannot be persuaded to become Jedi in this game. Please tell me I can have a jedi robot. That would excuse all of the problems I might have with the game.
