A few days ago I finished the game as DS, after playing through as LS the first. I played on the PC and with no mods for the first run, and a few like the Holowan plugin and a few others the 2nd time around. Holowan plugin does make the game a bit unbalanced but it was fun all the same.
To put it bluntly this is one of the best games ever made. I am surprised I did not get it back in early 04 when it came out for the PC, but after reading so much about it I finally gave in and got a copy.
The story was A list movie quality the whole way though. In fact this game would make a great movie or TV series. This is one of the best writing for any game I have played. This goes right up there with Planescape Torment and Baldurs gate series, but I should not be surprised I guess since it was the same people. Bioware sure knows how to make a great game.
I was so drawn in by the story that I took a day off work to finish it when I was near the end. (I had been playing it till like 2am the night before so I was too sleepy to go in lol)
The graphics are also top notch and for a game thats 2 years old, thats a great compliment. I played at 1600x1200 with all bells and whistles maxed out with a Radeon x800 XT PE. With a card that can handle it, it looks amazing and the sound is stunning. The music and voice acting all top quality. I try to find a complaint about the game but as hard as I can there is nothing I did not like about it. I starting playing games back in the late 70s and this games makes my top 5 all-time list. For the amount of games I have tried, thats some accomplishment (especially since I worked for PC Gamer magazine in the 90s and got paid to play games lol)
Now I will start Sith Lords, although I might wait for the restoration project to finish first.
anyway great game and if you have not played it go and get it!
