There are a variety of balanced champions which suits to everyone's taste and play style. Gameplay is excellent. The champions are so diverse it's great to learn one and get good at it. The leveling and item system isn't too bad, but it could have been a bit more interesting. There ARE balancing issues that the developers love to ignore with a lot of overpowered items or champions, but what can you do? The issue exists in every game. I enjoy the free to play model of the game, as you cannot pay to win. The purchasable currency is only used for unlocking champions early or cosmetics. Speaking of cosmetics, I really enjoy the artwork and graphics of the game. The splashes and fan art that come from this game are excellent. I also am one who enjoys the story of the League and lore of the various champions. It appeals to my love for fantasy games. The worst part about the game is that the community is probably the worst out of any game. It seems every other game you always get that dick or that guy who thinks he's the It's best to typically avoid the chat and mute players as fast as you can. Despite that, there isn't really a whole lot bad about the game, and for a free to play it's definitely great. Just play for fun, and avoid the community.… Expand
Average User Score: 9.0May 16, 2013Where to start? Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic is, and has been since I first finished it, my absolute favorite game. For ten years,Where to start? Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic is, and has been since I first finished it, my absolute favorite game. For ten years, this game, despite all of the other awesome and fantastic games I have played, still manages to be number one. Why? Because this game has what any game should, both quality and quantity.
I remember picking this game up on my Xbox for the first time. I didn’t know what to expect. I have been a Star Wars fan forever, since I saw the first movies. It was praised by critics and reviewers, so I figure I would try it. Little did I know that I would be playing a game that would inspire so many good memories in me.
I’ll start with the meat of the game—the storyline. This is probably one of the best stories I have ever experienced. It flows quite easily and was very immersive. This game introduced me to the whole “Old Republic” era of Star Wars, and as of now it is actually my favorite. This game introduces you to a story that you will love and really get involved in. It also gives you choice, such as a multitude of dialogue options which can affect the game in the end. I’m always a fan of the option to give as much choice as possible to players. There is also a very surprisingly plot twist at the near-end of the game which really makes the story pop.
The gameplay is also great. It’s sort of a fast-paced turn-based style of combat. I feel the difficulties are pretty balanced, none too easy and none too hard. The level up system is alright, but can be made better with mods (which I will discuss later on). The different skills and whatnot are very helpful throughout the game, such as Computer Use which allows you to hack into terminals and do a variety of things or Repair where you can repair broken droids to assist you in combat in that area. Combat is just very smooth and I was very happy with how they brought lightsaber battles to light.
The graphics are, in my opinion, really good for its time. You won’t be seeing HD textures or Skyrim-quality graphics, but really in 2003 there were few games that actually looked as good as KOTOR. But even today, it’s not all that bad looking. Planets are pretty good looking and heads for models are detailed.
This game really shines on the PC, and the reason why is because you can mod it. The KOTOR Filefront has thousands of mods which you can easily install to improve the game, either gameplay-wise or cosmetic-wise. I love it when a game has modding capabilities, and BioWare was kind enough to make this game easily moddable. I always mod it when I play it and it makes gameplay even better than it is vanilla.
This game is a standard for all role-playing games. This is what a role-playing game should feel like, fun and never boring. It’s a must have in my opinion if you like stories and Star Wars both. I have so much nostalgia when I replay this game. I hope you all love this game as much as I have.… Expand
