As for number of skills, most of them where just useless really, not to say there aren't useless skills in ME2 but I prefer it to ME1....though in truth ME3 has a really good skill set and gameplay mechanics, the best in the series actually as far as I am concerned. Now if only ME3 wasn't about shooting clone after clone after clone of enemies in every mission then I might like it more gameplay wise and yes I know ME1 and ME2 had a lot of clone troopers as well but in ME1 and ME2 you had mini-bosses in many areas or full blown bosses, in ME3 you don't have squat besides...Kai Leng.
In regards to story...well I dunno if you like TIM and Cerberus or outright despise them but what they did with them in ME3..makes the BS of DA2 look like fucking Shakespeare!

Not that it was an RPG of any sort, but I liked the narration, the small bits of adventure/exploration, and I thought the tactical cover-based shooting was entertaining. The setting felt very rich and interesting. Now that might be in part because I focused on the good parts, because honestly some gameplay mechanics are HORRIBLE. Mostly the morality system. Apparently they measure how many paragon/renegade points you have out of the total presented to you so far, which means if you straddle the fence and play neutral (both sides), at some point you won't be able to choose either! Also NPC interaction is extremely lame and shallow. And of course character customization.
So in my opinion ME2 is OK if you expect an action game, since it actually gives you a little more: exploration, dialogue, talent trees. And the setting is kind of interesting. If you expect an RPG, you'll be utterly disappointed.
PC does not equal Windows. Personal computers run many different operating systems, like GNU/Linux and, why not, Windows. PC games should be available for all major platforms. Let's not be handcuffed and tied to one vendor. Utilize standard, cross-platform technologies!

It's so good that you're not going to regret a cent.

As for Connor. I love him, and I will write about him soon although I won't rank him (but if I were to, he'd rank highly). A lot of the reasons I've sen for people who dislike Connor are meh, especially those who say it's because they miss Ezio or Altair. Their stories are done (esp Ezio, he had3 games), get over it. ›››
Glad to hear it! About Connor being a good protagonist, I mean. Really loved Altair and Ezio, and was afraid they messed up Connor, since I was "looking forward" to playing as him.
Appreciate the input!

Kreia is of course very awesome and she dominates every scene or convo she is in. A great character.
But so far, the game is meh. Other than Kreia, everyone else is meh with the possible exception of Atton. Nar'Shadda is dull and annoyingly stale. It takes way too much time to get a lightsaber (which as a guardian I can't afford), so I cheated and conjured up lightsabers. The plot in Nar'Shadda is really mess and not that well thought out. And those moments where they force you to fight as one of your companions against bounty hunters is poorly thought out (the way I built Atton is as a support ranged fighter, he can't take on two melee beasts on his own!).
Telos was boring and the potential Czerka / Ithorian divide which could have been interesting, is instead portrayed as good vs comically stupid evil. And IIRC Dantooine was also boring.
But I remember Onderon being good and so I'll wait for that. But for now, even with restored content, seems like KOTOR2 is still the unfinished gem.

You kind of went with a different planet order. Usually Dantooine is the first planet people go to after Telos (and you get a lightsaber there pretty quick). But to be honest, conjuring a lightsaber is not a bad thing. I have a mod installed that skips the whole first planet/tutorial/area and ports me directly to the Ebon Hawk + gives me a lightsaber.
I do agree that KotOR2 was not as much fun as the first one though.
Check out this topic for our fan translations of the Witcher saga. All done now!
All credits go to the translators. They did a terrific job.

Yea I'll probably do that.
Also did an entire page of the thread disappear or something?
