Heres my review for people that havent yet played it...
I recently purchased this game after wanting it for awhile and I have to say that I am completely satisified. If you have ever played Star Wars
Knights of the Old Republic you will instantly recognize the style of gameplay because definately takes many aspects of it.
The character developement and story line are amazing. Very in depth and it sucks you right in. You have the ability to go through your "codex",
which is like an dictonary for the game, and read about things you have encountered in the game if you want to, but its not necessary. The ammount of
time they took to detail and write background into everything is phenominal. There are several different alien races you encounter throughout the
game, each one with its own rich history and belief systems.
The game allows you to control your main character as well as keep two squad members with you at all time. You build up an entire squad of 6 people
and can choose which ones you want for particular missions. About 2 hours into the game you get your ship and can travel to various galaxies and each
galaxy has multiple solar systems to choose from.
You can choose to become good or bad as the game progresses. You can build up your charm and intimidate skill to open new discussion choices as
The battle system is all real time, but you can pause the game to switch weapons and use abilities. Very much like KOTR did. Every character can use a
sniper rifle, pistol, shotgun, and assult rifle. However, depending on the type of character (soldier, tech, pys) you can specialize more heavily in
particular ones. Theres a large inventory of weapons and armor with an even larger inventory of add-ons and ammo. There are also special abilities you
can build up as you gain levels.
I would reccomend it to any gamer thats a Star Wars fan or just a space junkie. The graphics and detail alone make the game a rental, but the
storyline and character developement make this game a must have IMO.
