Any body else got it? Really weird story-line so far. Kinda hard to get.

From what most people have said, it is. I really have just started it, so I cannot give you an honest answer, but it seems to be a mix of an RPG and third-person shooter right now.

I was really hyped for it, but felt like it fell flat on its face... I think I am pretty much alone in this opinion though. Most people seem to love it.

I think it has a god awful autosave... save often.

I think the combat is lame (I get the D&D math behind it, just thought it worked better in KOTOR 1&2).

Graphics are sweet but man o man is there a ton of pop in.

Story line is cool imo, and I really like just talking to people (not often you can say that about a game).

Haven't really gotten a chance to play more, but I agree, KOTOR had better combat.

Finally had some time to play. If you like combat games stay away from this game. I've played maybe five hours of it and only about 7 minutes of it was combat. The skill system is a bit wierd if you haven't played a RPG before, and the decryption mini-games could be better. Otherwise, I really like it. The story-line is amazing, as well as how in-deph the universe is. You can really immerse yourself in the amount of background this game has. And the moral decisions are not black and white like they were in KOTORs 1 and 2. You have to really think about this stuff to make it clearer than just gray.

A little late getting into this thread, but I have it and am about 2 missions away from beating the game. I'd have to say, it's not as good as KOTOR, BUT, it is a different game. Some things I like, some I don't, but overall, I've enjoyed playing it Smile I'll probably go through it a second time, this time as Renegade, once I'm done doing the Paragon.

I agree with the Pop-in graphics suck comment, though, overall, most of the time, the visuals are pretty cool Smile I like when you are on the Citadel, and you can look up and see the fake clouds move on the ceiling and vehicles flying around.

The one thing I do have to say is, when I first started the game, I started on the second difficulty level (Normal?) and it was just a hair too difficult for a beginner. I set it back to Easy, and, even though it's too easy at times, but it definitely can get you good enough to move on to higher difficulties. Basically what i was doing in Normal was thinking it was a FPS and was charging into every battle.... That doesn't work all too well when you need to have a little stealth going for you....

Yeah. But I like lots of stealthy things. How many side missions have you gone for on your first run-through?
