  1. A modern-day masterpiece that will be talked about for years to come.
  2. And there lies KOTOR’s most valuable feature, total freedom, freedom to go where you want to go, do what you want to do, and let the adventure unfold at your own pace.
  3. One of the best RPG’s ever made, and for me it’s definitely the RPG of the year.
  4. The battles look absolutely outstanding.
  5. An easy learning curve, excellent presentation and a story that will keep you coming back.
  6. This is a class act that builds and extends the Star Wars game franchise and PC gamers are getting something their kindred XBOX owners loved to bits and will not be disappointed in any way.
  7. 80
    It’s a testament to the strength of Knights’ original design that it manages to be gripping and engaging while in the midst of distracting technical problems.

    A legend, this game changed the whole RPG genre and started the Bioware RPG domination. Writing cons is faster so lets get to it: Fights are boring, back in 2003 it was something new and great but after 10 years it revelaed its true boring nature. Graphics werent amazing even in 2003 and now they look bad. I had something more on my mind but i cant remember what, this game is the best SW game ever released and its one of the best games of history. Expand

    Okay, anyone who doesn't like this became assuming its boring is a noob at this game. For you people who thought it was boring and is a noob, learn how to experience this game. I had a hard time getting use to the experience of the game when I first played, but its the greatest Star Wars game EVER! Expand

    One of the best games I've ever played. If you're looking for a shooter game, THIS GAME IS NOT IT. This is a game with intelligence, a developed plot-line, intriguing characters and side stories and an awesome conclusion. The graphics are good for the time, the levels and worlds look amazing, and the aliens and weaponry are all you'd expect from a Star Wars universe. Not to mention the combat system is very fun if you actually understand it. Naturally, with it involving more than pointing and clicking, that's probably not most of you. ;) Expand

    The only thing that detracts from this game is the constant, absolute CONSTANT running around you have to do. Despite this, the game excels in every area, attracting non-RPG players to a simple interface and control set up. Trust me, the only things you will need to run this game are your mouse and a space-bar (for quick pause). The story and music were excellent (the music won an award from PC Gamer) and this game also ended up with GOTY from PC Gamer. Character creation is a tad bit shallow, but once you get past that, the great story starts. Oh and the beginning is a bit slow, but dont worry as soon as you get out of the apartments, the fun will start! Expand

    Probably the worst star wars game ive ever played...Combat is extremely boring, the graphics suck, there is absolutely nothing interesting about the gameplay, and there is way too much reading to do...the jedi academy games are better in every way Expand
