A great Star Wars RPGgamma_rad | June 10, 2015 | See all gamma_rad's reviews »
Star Wars is a franchise perfect for RPGs, which makes me wonder why they haven't done one ages ago. And who else is better than BioWare, possibly the the best western RPG maker in the industry. with a match like that you can be sure the result is a great game. Pros: Great writing, great characters and truly Star-Wars scale epic plot with a twist towards the last part of the game. Roleplay a Jedi, choose the light or dark side of the Force, obtain force power and lightsabers. Set in the Old Republic time period, allowing you to a explore a lesser known era of the Star Wars universe. Cons: Starts off slightly slow. you only obtain Jedi powers after a the first Planet of the game. Slightly aged.

I could go on forever about this. KOTOR is one of the greatest stories ever told in my opinion. It's full of great characters, shocking twists, and a huge, living galaxy to explore. BioWare proved themselves to be story-telling geniuses, though hardcore PC fans already knew this. Knights of the Old Republic made me love Star Wars more than the movies ever did.
What a wonderful game!Cheese4395 | May 8, 2015 | See all Cheese4395's reviews »
One of the best games I've ever played. What a wonderful RPG and what an amazing story. If you need a huge time waste this is your game, whether you want to be a sith lord or a heroic jedi or even just a gunslinging badass. You pick what you want to be and you get to be it. Also you can bring along a few friends that you make along the way! I generally play FPS and RTS but let me tell you, you will not want to put this game down. It is amazing. Just get it. I promise you wont regret it.
As a meatbag would say: 'I have a bad feeling about this.'Obsessor | May 6, 2015 | See all Obsessor's reviews »
And my bad feelings promptly became reality. By the time I played KOTOR for the first time(around 2006), I failed two important exams. I just couldn't help myself, but experience this game to the end, uninterrupted by meaningless "real life" events. It is Star Wars unlike what you can see on the big screen, painted beautifully by Geore Lucas, and upcoming Jar Jar Abrams Binks. At first I was sceptical. No Skywalkers, no Vaders... No Boba Fett... My worries dissolved when I watched the intro, and set my foot on Taris after a brief, but very good, tutorial-prologue. Timeline of The Old Republic quickly became my favourite setting for Star Wars universe. That was caused by the greatness of the story, detalis put into creation of believable characters filling the game's world. It was a pleasure to read and listen to dialogues. Exploring each planet ever was a necessity, like "I have to go through this to reach the end of my quest... bah..." That was never the case. I have recently replayed KOTOR once again. It took me over 30 hours, and I must admit - I've skipped several quests on the way. Once again I was reliving this amazing story, and was disappointed when it ended, so suddenly KOTOR might not look up to any standards, but that's not the issue. It is enjoyable, it is playable on new PCs,I had no issues running it on Windows 8. "For now, please excuse me, master. I wish to meditate upon the face of my former meatbag master as he was electrocuted. I find it most soothing."

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was probably the first RPG I ever played. I wasn't very old at the time and I simply loved this game back in the day. Going back to it over a decade later, it has held up it even better than I ever thought it would. In Knights of the Old Republic, you play as a random soldier in the Republic, aboard the starship Endar Spire, that is being fired on by Sith forces in the beginning of the game. You make your own customizable character and go from there. Your journey will take you all across the galaxy and you will find out your true purpose in the game. Combat is "round-based" but is very fast going and doesn't drag. The force powers are amazing. Combat will never be dull; trust me. The best part of the game is the story and characters. You will only find one game series (another BioWare product, Mass Effect) that has better characters. These characters are that good. Conversations are intelligent, and for the time this game came out and even now, the conversation system is well done. And the Story is top notch. If you have played BioWare's more recent games (Dragon Age/Mass Effect) you will feel at home with of the best games of all time, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
