  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.

    Best story ever!!! Just try not to shudder when the plot unfolds, and not to pause when confronted to moral issues.

    A classic, no doubt. So glad I stood the test of keep playing it in-spite of its outdated graphics. One of the best Star Wars stories everA classic, no doubt. So glad I stood the test of keep playing it in-spite of its outdated graphics. One of the best Star Wars stories ever told, It took it's time impressing me, I was thinking maybe it was good for its time or something, but boy was I wrong. One voice actor Catherine Taber also unmistakably voices Padme in Clone Wars. Although the other battles were a singe, the final battle was a true challenge. With great challenging puzzles, awesome mini games, it truly is a game that should not be missed, if you're a fan of Bioware and Star Wars. Expand

    Steam download of KOTOR ($10.00)

    this absoloutly does not work. SOO happy i paid with an amex so i can get my money back. I have been trying to get this F***ing game to work for the last 3 hours with no result. I have read, and tried every possible option to get this game to work (steam overlay, resolution, uninstall and resintall, exe modification via properties menu, alt+tab) F****ing everything. If i do one thing in my life, it is to make sure no one gets scammed with this nonsense. All anyone wants to do with this game is to re-live the awesomeness that was KOTOR. Even though they made a terrible MMO remake of this game that no one playes, I still tried to give the developers one more chance. I WILL get my money back for this game but I will never get back the time I tried (and tried and tried and tried) to get this to work. You S**T bags will never get me to buy another game that you ever make. I have never written a review, nor bad mouthed anything I have played, regardless of my satisfaction. I will make it my lifes work to make sure you never scam anyone like this ever again. F**k you and everything you stand for, you are what is wrong with the gaming industry in this day age. You should be ashamed to call yourselves game devolopers, you might as well be a nigerian price asking for a wire account to make someone rich. The fact that I would put this time and effort into a 10$ download should be proof enough. I am suprised you even let people leave reviews, while you well know this does not work. I cannot belive you even made me install steam again (i used to play counter strike when it was a bonus CD in the half life series) I guess the time of conning honest gamers is not over. You have honestly made me so furious, that I cannot let a stupid 10$ game that does not work go. All I wanted to do, was to re live the fun I had with what I consider one of the best RPG's to have come out. F**K steam, F**K BIOWARE, F**K OBSIDIAN, F**K ASPYR. You have lost not only a customer, but everyone I have known, do know, and will know as customers. The worst part, is that I know this will fall on deaf ears, and that nothing will change, all I (we) want is to play the games we grew up with and you took that away, under the guise of nostalgia. You should be embarrased to call yourselves gamers, businessman, and developers.

    Sincerely,

    Jacob R Schiller (the most pissed off I have ever been)

    (sorry to the customer service rep who has to read this, you don't get paid enough and should take a S**T on your bosses desk, and tell Steam to shove it up their A**, GOD knows they get paid enough to clean it up)
