Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II is not playable on Switch – Gaming – News

Completely detached from the fact that the bug already existed and was documented in the original versions.

The claim here is that the game is not playable by anyone (issue would occur with everyone) and that this bug was also in the original PC version.

If that were the case, we would have had 0.0 positive reviews of the PC version in 2005. So even if there was one version of the bug in the PC version, it was not gameblocking for every PC player. As @chime pointed out.

In addition, I read several Switch reviews where the reviewer has completed the game, which means that the issue does not occur for everyone.

Yes the PC version was buggy. Yes the Switch version is buggy. Is it as buggy as claimed here and taken from 1 source indiscriminately… No. Even’s reference to a Twitter response is quite misleading:

In response to a user’s question, the company confirms that there is currently no way to complete the game on Nintendo Switch.

The Twitter message:

Yes, we are aware and our dev team is working on delivering the patch as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience in the meantime!

In response to:

Currerly impossible to complete. The game has a ton of bugs which tbh I understand. The original on Xbox was bug riddled, but theres currently a bug that prevents all progression at Onderon story ark.

This is why we need the steam deck. Fan made patchs fixed it on PC years ago.

That is no confirmation that no one can finish the game and it happens to everyone. What part are they responding to? That it is impossible to play? Just for him or for everyone? Or on the part that there are a lot of bugs in it. Or that there is a bug in the Onderon story ark?

Note: I don’t own a Nintendo Switch, am not an Aspyr fan or a big SWKotR2 fan (I have the game on PC, but haven’t played it yet). But this disproportionate news item is scandalous and is not unique in that (but does not make it acceptable). Googling for more information (which can’t be found) results in hundreds of results all repeating the same bad sources.
