  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.

    This is another classic who set the limit of PC Games far too high. Has its flaws but story and immersion propel it to 10. Must play if you haven't even if you aren't a Star Wars fan. Expand

    This game is bloody awesome. No doubt about it. An involving story, deep gameplay mechanics and great graphics all put together. This is one of those you won't be able to put down. Rightly so to. One of the best games ever. Expand

    This game has the best story of any game I, being quite an active gamer, have ever played. This is a masterpiece, and anytime anyone mentions the best game ever, this immediately comes to mind. Sure, it may have a few glitches and bugs, but these are more than compensated for. Expand

    The game I love. The gem. The pearl. It has its own power, its own spirit, its own bugs. Take a ride into this world, take a role in it and you will live there. You will live with it after your mission is over. An RPG in its heart. Collapse

    Nice story, nice game. Would be better if the game play was not like an rpg type game, I'm still waiting for something like jedi knight : jedi academy, it's more fun. Expand

    I think a lot of the negative comments on here are because people want a different game. Some want FPS, others want Tekken, one would rather play Neverwinter Nights. Fine. But this is a Star Wars RPG with a strong storyline. The story (no spoilers) means that the player PC MUST be Human. There are no Dwarves or Elves here. However, you have total control over 9 other potential party members including Twileks and Wookies. This is a great game with tremendous graphics that sucked me in for five straight days while I completed it. Now I'm starting all over again from the beginning and it is just as fun. The only complaint I have is that later battles are comparatively easier than early ones because the encounters are non-linear and don't seem to "level-up" along with the characters. Expand

    This game DOES NOT run on Windows 7.

    However, I've played it before on Xbox, and it was rather good. Too bad Lucas Arts still sells it on
    Steam knowing it doesn't run on the OS that the majority of people are on. Expand
