  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.

    Probably one of the best first-person role-playing games I have ever played. I first got the game when it released in 2003, but was too youngProbably one of the best first-person role-playing games I have ever played. I first got the game when it released in 2003, but was too young to really appreciate it. After replaying the game in 2016, I got about 40 hours worth of gameplay out of it, and it was fantastic! This is one of the very few old games I can wholeheartedly recommend in 2019. This is a masterpiece! Expand

Graphics are not really at todays level, but what can you expect from game which was released in 2003. Gameplay and storyline are something for other games to look up to. If you haven't been introduced to KOTOR, do it now! It's on sale in many places under 10 bucks. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Una aventura geminiana
    Star Wars, la única forma de hacerlo un bien juego es que sea RPG. Cada mundo de este juego es propio de si mismo, por ejemplo. Para mi, mis mundos favoritos son Taris, Manaan y Lehon. Los demás estan muy bien. Taris es precioso, lo futurista que es, artísticamente es muy bonito. Manaan, una gran ''isla'' podría decir, la banda sonora en cada nivel es diferente pero, para mi esta es la mejor. Lehon es precioso también. Hablando de la banda sonora se deleita uno escucharla. Jugablemente es como Dragon Age Origins esta entre un rpg por turnos y un Action-Rpg es rara la combinación, bastante bien ejecutada. Para mi tiene unas carencias, pero bueno eso queda en cada uno.

    La Historia: Lo que los ''roleros'' se fijan en este tipo de juegos. Bueno abra SPOILERS asi que, empiezo.
    Como es Star Wars y lo bueno, es que puedes ser tanto un Sith, como un Jedi. Para ser un Sith simplemente has todo lo cruel y para ser Jedi todo lo contrario. Por la aventura te vas encontrando distintos personajes, que si te llevas mal con ellos o no les caes bien, simplemente se van de tu equipo. Lo que te cuenten de Darth Revan, de lo que esta pasando en la galaxia. Como es en esa época los Jedi y los Sith, tenían digamos un arreglo político se podría decir. Como estas conectado con Bastila no pareció mal, lo ir por primera vez a cada planeta y tener una visión me gusto. Los diálogos muchos de ellos, por ejemplo los que tienes con Bastila me parecen bastante CRINGE y rectifico CRINGE. Una simple, demasiado simple historia de amor. Los mundos que te adentras cada uno pasa algo distinto. Las carreras de vainas, son divertidas, me hubiera gustado que den mas hincapié en eso. Como dije si algún personaje no les caes bien o le dices algo malo se van. Eso personalmente no me gusta nada. Me hubiera gustado, que hubieran tenido un poco mas personalidad. Si se que estoy hablando de un juego de 2003, pero bueno Chrono Trigger salio en el 95' y Xenogears salio en 98', para mi no hay excusa. Por ejemplo, ser Sith es mas profundo que ser cruel, es como un nazi creerte lo que haces y dices sin ningún remordimiento de ello. Darth Revan, aviso otra vez SPOILER, eres tu. Fue un buen giro, bueno no me la veía venir, pero no me dejo aaaaaaaah, con la boca abierta, la verdad los giros de trama me parecen estúpidos. Y al final que Bastila cayese al lado oscuro no me gusto. el final fue muy Trillado. O sos el rey de la galaxia o te dan una medalla como en el episodio IV. Me hubiera gustado que le dirán mas profundidad a los Jedi , a los Sith. De por que son lo que son. Al final son ''Los Caballeros de la Antigua Republica'' no. Mas profundidad en el combate pero bueno era 2003 y eso se entiende.

    Mi nota a este buen juego. No olvidemos quien lo hizo, Bioware. Si no hubiera existido este, no existiría Mass Effect, asi que gracias. Mi nota 9.1/10.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is one of my all-time favorite Star Wars games. I love how it tells the story of what happened before any of the movies ever took place. The story follows your character who has no memory of his life, and goes out to find out. It turns out he is very sensitive in the force, and has the skills of a Jedi. Meanwhile, the game's main villain Darth Malek is looking for an ultimate weapon to power his Sith fleet. This game also has multiple endings depending on your choices in the game. If you make good choices (such as saving the lives of others, or helping the needy), then you follow the path of the Jedi, but if you make bad choices (killing the needy, torturing people), then you go onto the Sith. Making these choices will change not only your personality and traits, but also how events in the game will play out. I would give an example, but that would be spoiling too much. As for the gameplay, it is excellent. You have a lot of freedom to make choices in the game (not total freedom, but freedom enough), and you can have a lot of fun doing it too. The combat may be turn-based like in any other RPG, but you wouldn't know it from how graphic it is. There are many animations your character can do in combat, and it all makes it look so real. This makes the combat in this game much more enjoyable. The graphics are enjoyable as well. Everything in this game looks very bright and colorful. Overall, this is an excellent Star Wars game. However, believe it or not, this is not my favorite Star Wars game (that would be Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy). The only real problem I have with this game is its sequel. Unlike most people, I think that KOTOR II kind of, uh, sucks (read my review of that game for more details), but who am I to think that the first game is bad just because of its sequel? Overall this game is flawless, and it should not be judged by KOTOR II. Expand
