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

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]

The game crashes every time I press play on the character creation page.

Edited: Apparently from what I've read, the steam version won't run on Windows 7? Tried several things to try and get the game running but after reading other steam reviews the game just looks unplayable.

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.

Doesn't matter if you like Star Wars or not, this is a story on its own. I've spent 19 hours on a dark side run alone, imagine how different being a totally different kinda person will be? If you love choosing between good and evil, play this NOW.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is not only one of my favorite RPGs, but also my favorite Star Wars game. It is able to tell an engaging story that can appeal to both veteran Star Wars fans and newcomers alike. The different paths your character can go down involving the Light Side/Dark Side options gives the game much replayability. There are a variety of ways to create your own playstyle through the many ability branches you can level up as you progress. Overall , this is a very solid game. Sure the graphics are somewhat outdated by todays standard, but what matters most is the gameplay and the content, in which this game is abundant in.

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.

Thanks For Reading My Review, Kind Regards: TouchTheRazor :-)

I love this game, I really do. I deeply regret having to not reccomemend it, but THIS ♥♥♥♥ING GAME IS UNPLAYABLE. Whether it's because of steam or that's it's old as hell, whenever I even start up the game it has probably about a 5/10 chance of getting to the main menu screen and a 1/10 chance of being able to use the menu screen without it frozen. To make it better, even when you get in game during normal cutscenes you have about a 1/2 chance of crashing and during a specific cutscene for me (the one where you leave Taris) I've only once got through it without crashing the game and am stuck since I can't continue on without crashing. I've probably started up and turned my computer off and on accurately about 35 times total, not even an exaggeration, just to get the game to work/start up. My pc has a htx 960 and an i5 intel core proccessor, so it isn't that I'm on a potato either. I really wish I was able to play this beautiful game..
(EDIT: Turn steam overlay and Game Theatre off and you will probably be able to get through the cutscene if you are having the same issue).
