we now in sith lords tht there r 3 sith lords( i think), compared to the first with just one sith lord does this mean tht this game is goona be 3 times as big, with 3 times as many side quests and 3 times as many allies and badass badys?

I dont know about 3 times, but ya its looking as tho this game will be longer then the last 1 with more planets/areas to explore, more dialog to go threw, and the way you HAVE to talk to your party to actually get them to help you this time.

I don't know. I saw somewhere that there were about 100 000 dilaogue lines while Kotor 1 had about 40 000.

On the other hand, I alwasys hear the devs say that it would have about the same lenghts as KotOR 1 (but more replayability)...

There is the same number of planets, I believe...

Crap, I think it was in a game magazine, maybe EGM, but im not sure, think it was on IGN or 1 of those game sites too. Cant really remember where because I have got so much info in the past 2 weeks on this game it kinda makes it hard to remember where you saw everything.

The first game was pretty long, so if I'm gonna be realistic I don't think TSL will be much longer. And it seems to me that almost every game turns out shorter than what the developers say before it's released, just look at Fable and Halo 2.

IMO KOTOR I had an acceptable lenght. I know I've played lots of other RPGs that were longer but sometimes, the risk is losing people in the middle of story and have a story that just seems stretched for the sake of stretching it. For such a game like KOTOR that relies heavily on how good the story is, they must sacrifice a few things in order for the story to be fun.

I will make a better example. Look at how short Max Payne 2 is. I finished it in two days. Look at the story from uniquely a story stand point. The story here is just right, not too long, not too short. From that standpoint, you know the story is complete without stretching.

Its suppose to be 40+ hours, so its longer as the original is about 24 hours (with side quests)

I got this from Gamespy's review.

One of my coworkers is more than 60 hours into the game, so it looks like KOTOR2 offers a ton of gameplay

Seems like he isn't finished either. So if you like to take your time and examine everything looks like you've got a long (enjoyable) haul on your hands. :D
