Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords now a Platinum Hits Title
I received the LucasArts Insider, Issue #64 late last night, and the only thing of interest in it to me was that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords is now officially a Platinum Hits title on Xbox. This means you can go to any retailer and pick the title up for $29.99 or less.
In my opinion, this is the best RPG available for the big black box, and well worth that cost. While the story somewhat falters at the end due to a rush to meet a Christmas release, the game still features a gripping, dark storyline and excellent characters, both companions and enemies. It also greatly enhances the mechanics of the exceptional first title, including the addition of alignment Influence on your Party Members, Lightsabre Stances, quick weapon swapping, more Force Powers and Feats, inclusion of Skills in conversation, etc.
If you haven't yet played this great RPG, it's now certainly affordable to do so. Head out and pick it up, and if you haven't yet, also pick up its predecessor as you'll have a much better understanding of the importance of the game's storyline and backstory.
