There have been a lot of Star Wars video games. Action games, platformers, spaceship simulators, strategy games, shooters... But there is one game that stands above them all. It is an RPG and it's called Knights of the Old Republic.
KOTOR takes place during the Old Republic era when Jedis and the Sith Empire were at war.
Your character will get involved in some of the important events of this time and will even become a Jedi himself. You can explore several planets like Tatooine or Manaan. There are lots of quests to do and a bunch of characters to recruit. All of them are likeable and a few are really excellent partners.
The battles take the form of your typical western RPG. You can pause the game and make tactical decisions. The moves are flashy and the music score is brilliant.
Oh and one another thing. Like Mass Effect and Dragon Age after it, KOTOR gives you the possibility to choose how your character will act. You can choose the Light or the Dark side. Each one has its owning ending.
Knights of the Old Republic is a classic that every Star Wars fan must play.
A great , expansive space RPGdaniyyel | Dec. 20, 2014 | See all daniyyel's reviews »
Bioware has delievered one of the greatest , deepest and most expansive RPGs ever in this game. The story is epic, the characters well written and the atmosphere captures the essence of Star wars perfectly. There are lots of options to customise your character. Many options to approach (or avoid) combat with. Choices are weight and affect the game.
The only drawback is that the visuals are dated. Highly recommended

Knights of the Old Republic is a classic, one of the best Star Wars games ever made, and one of best games ever made. Set in a time period away from the movies, and sending you back to the time of Old Republic, KOTOR is an unmatched RPG by Bioware.
By todays standards, the visuals may seem dated in KOTOR, but looks serviceable and fine to all but the most picky. Sound is terrific, and voice acting is strong across the board.
The story of KOTOR takes a time and setting unfamiliar to most, and succeeds it telling possibly the highest quality story in the Star Wars universe. High praise indeed.
This version is for MAC, and runs well with no discernible differences from the original on the PC.
Seriously, just play this game if you like good games and RPGs. You won't regret it.

If you reading this... Means you haven't play Knights of the Old Republic... Wich means you are a shadow of your former self, you must change it immediately. There is very little to say about this game. Hard to not spoil something, you must experience that storyline on your own. All I can say you will cry after this game come to an end. If you'll see the credits screen, you'll drown in tears because something so amazing should last far longer. Anyway, you wake up as an mercenary who later become a Jedi. Everything is in your hands, how will you bahave, how will you making choice, how will you fight, for what purpose, what will find as the adventure goes on, what will you learn, how will you withstand all of that when you realize who you really are... You can change the faith of the republic, how will you do it, it's up to you. You can collapse faith of the republic, how will you do it, it's up to you as well. Do not become a pawn of dark side, control it. Now sink in this deep adventure rpg and make jedi order proud... or yourself... It's 100/100, those barely few bugs are nothing that messing up with a gameplay. The storyline is far then enough to deserve 100/100. Lack of this kind of games nowadays. Star wars epic OST will serve you right as well in this remarkable adventure.

If you had played it and enjoyed it dragon age: origins, you would love this game. Is awesome, all in the universe of star wars, but you don´t need to know anything of about star wars to enjoy this game.
+Awesome gameplay, is fluid, is fun and challenging.
+Great story: I wont spoiled it for you, but is great!
+Deep choices trees.
-Is a little stiff for me, but still fun.
-A little buggy.
-Kinda short but that is just my opinion.
Just buy it... this game is great!
