Yeah, I saw it got updated and was a little confused at first. It's super cool they're doing this, I've been working my way through the original. So, I'll definitely be playing the second one next.

I'm actually kind of excited, I play the first one all the time but it's been ages since I've played the second.

I too was a little confused as to why it was being updated when it's an old game. That's awesome they added gamepad/controller support and new resolutions to it. Maybe they'll update the original so it fixes some of the issues with it?

It's probably got bugs and stuff that could use fixing. But then again there's no way that 1 is as buggy as 2, considering what happened with 2 in development. They could just do exactly what they did with 2. Fix bugs, add resolutions, give controller support and throw in achievements. Granted I only played 1 on Xbox so I can't speak for the PC port.

It's just graphical issues but like the grass messes up on Dantooine where your player character's bottom half disappears in it and slight stuff like that. Also, you need to turn off I think it's frame buffering or it makes your game crash after leaving the character creation screen.

I think some of the issues are because the game is old and not optimized for newer systems as well as it was for Xbox. I think if they could do something along the lines of the same update for KoTOR 1, it may fix those issues. Only thing I found not to work all the well was the controller support... I found myself using the mouse to do things like weapon switching and a few other things.

Other than that, this update was awesome.
