Top 5 Worst Sequels #4 KOTOR 2

So if your a gamer in general, you’re familiar with KOTOR or Knights of the Old Republic for one reason; this was the best Star Wars game ever.  Don’t get me wrong, there have been other good Star Wars games, but KOTOR set the bar for awesome.  You got to choose classes and develop skills in a ridiculously deep RPG.  Running around hacking sith and mercenary’s to death with your lightsabers is so badass.  The game was great with a crazy plot twist and fun story.  Lots of side quests and cool party members.  It was a great game and is still one of the best PC games of all time.  Here is were the sequel essentially shit on all of its fans.  Don’t get me wrong, its not that it’s a bad game, its just a big step back.  First off, the story is meant to make it so you can choose to be good or evil in the force by essentially making your fuck up a bunch of people as a sith, and then trying to redeem yourself or further fuck up everybody.  It’s not a bad story, but there are no, WTF moments like in the first.  The story is just much more bland and simple.  It’s kind of stupid that way.  Secondly, the characters in the second one are boring.  In fact, the best characters in the second one, are ripped straight from the first game.  That’s right, the best characters in the KOTOR 2 are from KOTOR, that’s being lazy.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a very in depth RPG, but the game was so rushed to get onto shelves, that some things are just stupid.  There are much less sidequests and certain areas which should be accessible are not, for no reason other than lazy programming.  There is a company trying to put in everything left out from KOTOR 2, so that may redeem this game, but for now, this game is retarded.  For example, in one of the earlier areas, you notice a room that on your map says you can enter.  When you reach the door, you try to go in…and can’t.  I spent 30 minutes looking for maybe a key or something to get inside.  Finally, my friend who’s beaten the game before looks over and says, oh, you can’t go in that room, they must not have programmed it.  If it’s on the map, but it’s not in the game ITS BULLSHIT!  This game is a good game, but the first was just soooo much better, that this had to be on the list.  If you like this game, I’m with you, but this game is like an 7.5/10 or 8/10, while the first was a 9.5/10 or a 10/10.  A good game, but they made it retarded.

Wait, is she a muslim jedi?
