  1. It’s rare that I get so excited over a game, but the interactive storyline, the solid gameplay, and everything else managed to make me a firm believer that the future of Star Wars will be bright one.
  2. No other Star Wars game, including "Star Wars Galaxies," has done a better job of completely immersing you in the Star Wars universe. It's impossible to finish the game without somehow feeling like your actions have made a difference.
  3. The only thing missing from this masterpiece is the fact that once you finish playing the game, you can’t watch it as a movie!
  4. The battles look absolutely outstanding.
  5. The deepest foray yet into the Star Wars universe and well worth the price of admission.
  6. Not only one of the best "Star Wars" titles to date, but it is also one of the finest games in recent memory.
  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.

    this game is amazing..

    this game is amazing..
    Pros: the storyline is fairly quick paced, the tutorial is extremely informative.... the leveling up system is pretty efficent... not enough feats and skills to level up.... i love the hidden easter eggs
    cons: the character interaction isnt really involving.... its like your just watching the conversations happening.... it is missing content because the game developers didnt finish the game.....
    finally the ending is amazing and it has 3 different endings,....…
    @darthaegis i agree that KOTOR 2 is better then this game but the storyline for this game is much much better then KOTOR 2 but KOTOR 2 has better graphics....
    @DegenCutter i have played this game when it first came out and the graphics were amazing...
    i also STILL play this game and the whole reason the graphics suck right now is because niether bioware OR obsidian can take up the KOTOR name because disney is deciding what is canon.... and they dont know crap... no matter how old i get i will ALWAYS own and play this game.... i love going through the game and finding the easter eggs.... or unlocking something new that i havent found before....
    which to date in KOTOR 2 is the last lightsaber form, and the last Force Form....
    in KOTOR i only need to get the cheat droid in the fighter simulation

    The first attempts at play through in this game were rough. ( I knew this was an RPG from the get go however. Any one who picked this up backThe first attempts at play through in this game were rough. ( I knew this was an RPG from the get go however. Any one who picked this up back when it was new expecting JK series game play was a moron.) After sitting back and examining how i was allotting points for stats and skills however I managed to create a character that played through to finish the game. I realized a few things. Bioware makes challenging games. They really push the boundary of: How much will I let myself get immersed and what mechanics will i explore? There is a wrong way to play and select stats and abilities and this is a good thing. There is still choice. You just have to know what you are doing to create the character you want to play. I like this game more than dragon age origins admittedly because it is a bit more forgiving if you get yourself in a sticky situation. Expand
