I'm aware I don't have many hours logged on this game for the PC. However, as kid I played this on the original Xbox back in the day. So trust me on this.

1.) This game is by far my favorite in the Star Wars series, it's unique RPG style was unlike any game at the time (at least for me.) The choices you made in-game defined your character from the Jedi, Sith or even the interesting/unique Grey jedi and each choice could impact in small/ large ways the overall outcome of the story and your companions which makes for a lot of replay value.

2.) The story (without spoilers of course) is very compelling and complex with many new challeneges as you progress further and even a few twists and turns that keep the story exciting and not dragged out. The characters are interesting and fun to learn more about once you start forming bonds with them through your adventures.

3.) Turn based combat which is interesting and though wasn't my favorite style of combat, the formula for this game just feels right and flows well for what it is. It makes weapon modifications, skills and talents, armor and modifications and even the choice of companions important based on the enemies you may face in each and every encounter.

4.) Just buy this game! it's worth it. If you like a game where you create your own path, then make one in this beautiful universe of Knights of the Old Republic. Years have aged this game but it's a hidden gem you can't find anywhere else.

This game is responsible for my love of Star Wars, and it's an absolute classic. Bioware at their best. Just a shame we never got a proper conclusion to the series.. a proper single player conclusion that is.

*Just a heads up, if you intend on playing this on a modern pc, turn off FRAME BUFFERING in the advance settings, otherwise the game will crash.

Please note that I've also played this game when it launched, a long time ago, in a galaxy far fa.... oops :P

Gonna keep this short:

If you love RPGs and you're a fan of Star Wars then buy this work of art and you will not be dissapointed. This is, to my knowledge, the only Star Wars game where your actions have consequences, where you can fall to the Dark Side and feel like a badass Sith Lord.

The story is just amazing and the ending is jaw dropping.

Just recently bought this game on Steam after owning it for a few years on Xbox. The PC version is far superior (go figure) and it doesn't suffer from any bugs as you may hear as Steam recently updated it to be compatible with up to Windows 8 (and possibly 10). Only buy this game however if you are willing to invest dozens or even hundreds of hours into a game. It's a juicy one boys and girls. Tons of content, multiple paths, many weapon and gear combinations, charming characters, great music, and beautiful environments. A must have for all gamers.

P.S. One of the few Star Wars games where a Light Side playthrough is just as rewarding as a Dark Side. XD

The game is great for its time and is still widely cvonsidered one of the best Star Wars games.
I bought the game without looking if it had controller support assuming it would... considering KOTOR released on the OG Xbox initially. It is absurd how they took controller capabilities out of the code. If you like stretching your fingers all of the place than this game is for you.

I love this game. The character are all very well fleshed out, with their own personality traits. The combat is well designed, and the story, while relatively simple, is intriguing. This game is well worth the $12 or so dollars it costs on Steam.

As soon as I put on this game, I knew it was going to take up a lot of my time. If you are a star wars fan, I highly recommend this game for people that actually apreciate the game despite it's graphics. Overall, this game has already got me hooked and for $2.49 on sale it is a really good deal for a really good game.

Star Wars KOTOR is regarded as one of the best RPG games of all time. I admit, it's not as grand and open as The Elder Scrolls or Fallout. It's closer to that of Dragon Age.

PROS:

  • The game is everything Star Wars
  • It opens up a whole new area of lore, events, story, characters not seen in the movies
  • It has a great RPG aspect, letting you choose your character, party, and slight storyline.
  • The game lets you decide the fate of some quests & how your party members get along with you and others.
  • A well-done karma system is also in place, letting you choose the light side or the dark side
  • You have a fully customizable character build, you star with selecting your base class, but can place your attribute and skill points where you wish.
  • Weapon usage is also your choice. Like blasters? Shoot some Sith. Swords? Slash some Sith. Lightsabers? SLice your foes with your badass laser stick!
  • LIGHTSABERS, who doesn't want one?!
    [* Lightsabers are customisable with their crystals, changing stats and their colour. [/list] [b] CONS: [/b] [list] [*] Old graphics, but still looks beautiful. Could POSSIBLY get a texture mod somewhere. The game is also being fan remade (3rd and 1st person view) and will be available at some point. [*] Nothing else, this game is near perfect. [/list]

Great game, but unplayable on modern OS's. Every fix presents a new problem. I had 5 seperate and gamebreaking issues plus some within an hour of gameplay. Buy the game on your smartphone instead, it's exactly the same, but works better.

Issues (since people are asking):
-Constant crashing
-Scaling issues on high resolution
-Hud disappeared permanently after attempting to fix the crashing (which didn't work anyways)
-Disgusting performance on good system (about 15-30 fps on the endar spire)
-Getting stuck after some combat situations
-Cursor inches off center making it almost impossible to select anything
-Cursor not working at all sometimes
-No widescreen support (the fixes didn't work, and if they did the hud would distort distorted)

Such an amazing Star Wars centric RPG. The sequel is rushed, that can be obviously seen but still very fun. They need to make a third because this is a worth while game.

This was one of my first games i ever played and finding it on steam was great mow i can replay this amazing game.
If you like star wars and roleplaying games then give this game a try
the game has a great combat system.
A amazing story with a magor plot twist (PLease don't spoil it if you know it)
there are also 9 companions to pick from you may only your max Squad size is 3 so pick carefully.
A light side and dark side ending there are also alot of force poweres like force choke and force lightning and many more.
There is more to say but i'm not gonna tell you everything about it you should find out some of it yourself to make the game more enjoyable.

If you like what you read then this is the game for you. the 2nd game is just as good if you like this one
the downsides to this game is you have to turn off a few settings to get it working there is a guide for it it's not made by me so all credit goes to whoever made it so read that before starting the game or you will crash as you start the game after create your character
and that is about it now get out there and save or rule the galaxy.

This game is famous for being the #1 Star Wars game of all time, as well as the #1 bioware RPG of all time, even for being one of the best RPGS of all time, and for good reason. It has EXCELLENT story, AWESOME character customizatin options (For Back In The Days), BEUTIFUL graphics (even though it was made more then a decade ago), AMAZING visuals, AMAZING oice acting, and so much more that makes this game AWESOME.

I 100% Recommand This Game To You, And To Anyone, Even If Your Not A Starw Wars Fan, You'll Still LOVE This Game.
