OXM Review (http://www.imagelink.org/listings.php?search=kotor&catid=21&pagenumber=1)


Its official, OXM = 9.3

Some new things *WARNING SPOILERS*






6 Characters revealed:

Kreia:The first member of your team to join you. An old wise Jedi, she offers you advice and training throughout the game. A superb swordswoman despite only having one hand, she's invaluable during melee combat.

Atton Rand: A scoundrel and new pilot of the Ebon Hawk, he is the second to join your party. Whispers and rumour follow his every movement. Word has it he played a secretive part in the recent Jedi Civil war.

Bao-Dur: A Zabrak technical specialist. Followed by a home-made droid, he helps you create your first lightsaber. A troubled past has seen him forever wandering the galaxy looking for peace. Has an upgradeable cyber arm!

Handmaiden: Handmaiden stows away on board the Ebon Hawk after hearing of your Force powers. She is fiercely protective of you and will follow you to the ends of the galaxy.

Visas Marr: A blind Jedi Sentinel with a past. She is steeped in mystery and has the ability to see using the Force. Perhaps the most secretive of your new team, she is still fiercly loyal to you, regardless of the path you decide to tread.

T3-M4: The originall expert droid from KOTOR. Is superb at creating somputer spikes and unlocking security doors, although this time around his memory circuits seem a little corrupted.

Forget all that "Every choice has a consequence" Fable BS, KOTOR II is the real deal!

"You may give a begger credits, but then to witness him murdered for them makes you question and second guess everything you're asked to do."

The game really is darker.

"You will spend the first level running away and ultimately get your ass kicked"

*Mega Spoiler**A screenshot in the magazine shows the RETURN OF BASTILLA!

Not only can you change your weapons on the fly...so can your team.

"No were is safe....not even the Ebon Hawk*

Yea, you can be attacked on the Ebon Hawk.

Revenge of the carpet: To prove that KOTOR II is darker then the first game, you'll come across a bounty hunter who will stop at nothing to bring you to the Sith. His species? A Wookie!

Non gay C-3P0: There are a few submissions that require you to take control of other characters. One of these is a dark side version of C-3P0 who persuades his companion (an evil R2-D2, naturally) to go on a killing spree.

Worlds you Explore: Telos, Dantooine, Onderon, Dxun, Peragus, Korriban, Mandalorian homeworld.

"The party isn't only at Sion"

Your new *****s: Darth Sion, Darth Nihilus, and a ****load of other "Darth's"

Your alignment effects your precision: In other words, Dark = More strikes, less chance of hitting and vice-versa for Light.

The return of everyone's favorite homocidal droid, I call him the BUSHDroid, but you call him HK-47: With the entire crew of the Ebon Hawk apparently dead, it comes as a bit of a suprise when you open the cargo hold to discover the fizzing HK- 47 assassin droid from the first game. The psychotic droid seems to have been irreparably damaged following the mysterious disappearance of the crew. With newer HK-50 and HK-51 droids being used to hunt you down by the Sith, HK-47 might hold a few cluses as to why the original crew are missing. If you want to repair him, he becomes one of KOTORII's ongoing minigames. Every planet you visit has one more component that will mend him. The question is though, will you want to hear what he has to say?

I love it that we start as a Jedi... So I'm assuming that Bastilla only returns if you choose Darkside based on the first KOTOR?!...

Nah, if you were Light the you could have fallen in love with her so she's still in the game no matter what side....well unless you opted to kill her yourself.


Ahh, the box is too tiny. Well, just in case you didn't know, click the quote button underneath this post, that will show you what it says.

I guess thats what I meant to say...
So if you killed her or not...
I just wonder if they have different ways for Bistilla to reappear into the picture.
Or just one way due to the fact that part2 is supposedly a continuation from the first.
I guess we'll find out.

The game is out today right?! I have to wait until Friday... *sigh*

One more MAJOR SPOILER. DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE GAME SPOILED!


Well Canderous is back and uh..........

HE'S MANDALORE!!!!!!!!!!(You know, the Mandalorian king/god/leader guy.)


Really, that one just slapped me in the face. Let's just say Revan wasn't the only one with a hidden identity...
