<a href="http://the-junkyard.net/">Junkyard</a> has done their <A href="http://the-junkyard.net/reviews.php?action=viewreview&id=41">review</a> of <A href="http://www.lucasarts.com/games/swkotor_sithlords/">Knights of the Old Republic 2</a>, giving it an <b>8.5/10</b>. The body is broken down in to what's right and what's wrong with the game, and the wrong being graphics, AI, and glitches. The right being everything else, like this:
<br>
<blockquote>The StarWars universe is one of the most comprehensive and massive fictional backdrops every created in history. There are over 20 full length novels alone that take place after The Return of the Jedi and even they, rich as they are, account for only a part of the massive amounts of information. The original KotR had a great story that actually managed to enrich the StarWar's universe. Thankfully, Obsidian has outdone themselves with the imagination and depth of The Sith Lords. I would go so far as to say that KotR II's story surpasses both the original's and Episodes I-II. While people may disagree with the comparisons, I think it's safe to say that KotR II's plot is excellent, even though it does have its flaws.</blockquote>

Surpassing the stories of Episode I and II is kind of like entering a Ferrari in a Yugo race. Not a whole lot of challenge there.

Beats the crap out of the first one in most every area where things were changed, which the exception of the ending.

The state of insanity.
Ditto what Saint said. I really did love the game. Alot. It's just the rushed ending really sucks. And not just the endings, but the final "dungeon" as well. Felt like I was playing Gauntlet.

It's still on my system and will be for awhile though.
