Hello again everyone, alright so this will be more of an in depth review of Kotor 2 for I held back most of what I wanted to say in the first part but let’s get onto it. When it comes to video games I mostly look for a good storyline that will prevent me from figuring out what the general synopsis of the video game will entail.
For instance, when Kreia or Darth Traya kills all the jedi masters in one full sweep that caught me way off guard. I mean shoot,finding out my teacher in the ways of the force, turned out to be an active sith lord doesn’t surprise me but how she did it, surprised me.
And yes we can debate on Kreia being a sith or jedi though she does imply in the game that she may be neither. As quoted, “Perhaps I am neither. For I hold them for what they are pieces of a whole.” But one thing I didn’t catch in the game even when I beat this game twice was that Kreia is the Handmaiden (Briaunna’s) mother. I was so mind blown.
Now I have played Kotor 2 through both as a female and male but in my opinion if you’re a male you get more love perks as a male than playing as a female.
To be honest I think it is only because the female companion you travel with show more passion. Not to say Atton doesn’t but the Disciple…let’s just say he may show love but doesn’t display much passion as Atton. And then Mandalore he isn’t even thinking about love. Makes me wanna say, “You Saiyans and your bloodthirsty race.” lol.
But as a male protangonist, you get a lot of love between Visas, Handmaiden, and a little bit of Mira 😉 but I’ve asked around and many would choose Visas Marr over Handmaiden. I got curious on Visas Marr and did some research and turns out Visas Marr was voiced over by Kelly Hu. Who I was already a fan of from the movies: The Scoprion King and X-Men 2 but when I found out she was Visas Marr I fell in love with Visas Marr.
As you can tell out of the Kotor 2 companions I have a bias for Visas Marr 😀 but here’s the cast to at least the main characters in the game.
Kotor 2 Cast:
Also too, I’m glad the game developers are allowing different color ranged lightsabers in the game. Like if you played Star Wars Jedi Outcast you only had one lightsaber color to choose from in story mode outside of when playing multiplayer. And despite how in the story the character you play as may have only wielded one lightsaber but you still have the choice to dual wield lightsabers or have a double-edged lightsaber. Me personally I like the Cyan color lightsaber. It’s nice to see something different than the traditional blue lightsaber.
Now on a more philosophical note, Kreia is probably the deepest wielders of the force in my opinion. Because she wasn’t just referring to the force but life itself. Like actually principles to consider to live by in real life. Like here’s a quote from early in the game,
“You see, the war the true war has never been one waged by droids, or warships or soldiers. They are but crude matter, obstacles against which we test ourselves. The true war is waged in the hearts of all living things, against our own natures, light or dark. That is what shapes and binds this galaxy, not these creations of man.”
Say what what you like but this quote is deep. It’s like Kreia is referring all the wars, problems people or we ourselves are facing they do not matter for once you win the war within yourself. That is what is going to make this world a better place.
Here’s another one:
“To be united by hatred is a fragile alliance at best”
Every time I see these hate groups of whatever it is they hate, I can’t help but think of this quote by Kreia. What are your thoughts on these quotes or Kreia in general? Leave them in the comment section I love to hear you all’s thoughts!
Since I have quite a passion for Kotor 2 I’m debating creating my own Kotor 2 walkthrough but I’m still thinking about it. If you can’t get the physical game, you can find Kotor 2 PC downloads on GOG or Steam.
