Knights Of The Old Republic is one of my favourite games. It is story-rich and has an array of characters you can use in your party as well as talk to outside of any missions. The only downside is that this is an old game so if you're one for graphics, you will be disappointed.

If you do pick this up, I recommend you browse the mods to add to the experience and perhaps improve the graphics.

KOTOR is what every other Star Wars game wants to be but fails. If only we actually got a proper sequel after KOTOR II. Instead we got yet another cash in on WoW's success MMO. Oh well at least both of these wonderful games are still able to be played. Pick them up they are a must own for anyone who loves RPG's and Star Wars.

I love Bioware games and am a moderate Star Wars fans, but I didn't have a good time with this game. It's been a few years since I last beat it, but I never enjoyed the experience. I think it mostly comes down to the fact that the gameplay is very dated and that I couldn't get into the story. Even though this is an RPG with a 16ish hour length, I felt that it could have been compressed down into a tighter game. But, don't take my word for it, a lot of other gamers love this game for many reason. I'm probably just full of ♥♥♥♥.

The Best Star Wars RPG out there. 10/10
This is one of the best RPGs I've ever played. This is probably the best Star Wars game ever made, and anyone who likes RPGs or Star Wars should play it. Even today, despite its age, this game is still amazing. The graphics are dated sadly, but that shouldn't put anyone off.

The overall storyline will mainly be the same, but everyone is likely to have their own experiences with this game. You get to choose your actions, and what your character says, and everything you do will guide you torwards the light or the dark side. There is so much satisfaction by the end of the game whether you choose one side or not, and the side that you do choose will affect the ending. The story is where the real experience is, there are so much likeable characters, there are side stories among the main stories that give yoiu more if you invest in them. The story also contains a lot of twists and shocking moments throughout.

There is so much content to this game, examples of this are the main story, side missions, Bounties, character backstories, swoop races, gambling and more. My playthrough of this game lasted about 30 hours, not completing every task.

I loved the characters in this story, you have a powerful enemy, and come across a variety of colourful side characters in the storyline. You recruit unique characters into your team as you progress, a Jedi, a Chewbacca, an Assasin Droid, a Utility Droid, a Bounty Hunter, Alien species and more. You will need to choose which ones you are bringing with you on each mission, and sometimes that isn't easy.

The combat was great, and enjoyable. I guess it can be a get easy when you're the correct level. You get to create your own Lightsaver which is fantastic, which can then be upgraded. I loved my Green Double Bladed Lightsaver. You equip weapons, and when enemies spot you, auto combat will begin, you can switch between controlling yourself and allies. As the combat occurs, you can choose a skill/attack for your characters turn. Its a mix of real time action with turned based combat.

You can unlock force abilities, upgrade stats of your team members, purchase droid teammates upgrades, purchase armor/weapons for you and team members. There are a lot of different weapons for you to find, and set to your team members. There are a lot of options to play how you want.

Knights of the Old Republic is one of the greatest RPG Games ever developed. I highly recommend this to any Star Wars & RPG Fan.

KOTOR is best played with K1 Restoration mod and Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge mod (both are compatible with each other).

Pros
+ Far better than SWTOR (also known as the game that killed Revan)
+ Storyline is intense, revelations that will leave you speechless (unless you're stupid like me and decide to look at a Youtube playthrough and ruin the ending for yourself)
+ Aside from the main storyline there are plenty of side quests you can do to keep you busy for hours
+ The fate of the entire galaxy is placed in your hands, as you search for clues to the mysterious 'Star Forge' you can either help people or destroy them
+ Excellent voice acting that fits perfectly into the story

Cons
- Game has the potential to crash at the most inconvenient times (happens less on the Steam Version)
- No Achievements or Steam Trading Cards
- Textures & Graphics are a bit dated, but thankfully there's a bunch of mods that aims to fix that
- Camera in the Ebon Hawk is zoomed far too close to the character (There's a mod that fixes this)
- Unlike in K2, you can't have much of a conversation with HK-47 or T3-M4

My Rating: 10/10 (Recommended)

An excellent adaptation of the d20 system by BioWare. The NPCs aren't amazing, but, as is almost always the case with Star Wars, the universe more than makes up for it. Admittedly I prefer the writing styles of the Obsidian-born sequel, but if epic quests to save the galaxy are something you enjoy, you should pick this game up. Unfortunately, this game like many others suffers from a very shallow morality system that often comes down to two choices.

Great game, not jus for its day. but in general. Satisfying, pausable, squad tactics-based combat and great RPG elements. your actions matter, so there are multiple endings. This one really deserves a remake.

I recommend this game, because even after so many years it's still a pretty good RPG with some memorable characters.

BUT!

Be warned that, even with additional fan patches, this game seems to have a lot of trouble with modern OS.

- There is a bug that after, like, 90% of the battles my character just got stuck and I had to quicksave and reload. Many other people have this issue, but there seems to be no fix for it besides the above-mentioned 'trick', which gets super tedious.

- The game crashed at irregular intervals, and it got more frequent the longer I had played. This tends to happen especially while quicksaving or loading, and if it happens during the first, the quicksave file is broken and can't be loaded anymore. That combined with the 'stuck after battle' bug gets INCREDIBLY annoying the longer you have to deal with it.


This doesn't render KOTOR unplayable, but I can't say I really enjoyed playing it either. So, if you buy the game, be prepared to face these nuisances too.
