First off this collection comes on two discs (one for each game), and the total install size is 4gb and 5gb, respectively. This game does require a disc-check of some type, or in other words you must have the disc in tray before it will let you run it. That being said, you can play either game with either disc in the tray. This is sad news for netbook owners and folks that don't have cd drives in their laptops.
Now for the part that everyone is waiting for:
This game does run on W7 64 bit. I didn't have any crashes or errors, though it did take a bit to install KotOR2 (about 15 mins - versus 5 for KotOR1). Graphical options are exactly the same for both games, so there's no need to list them separately.
Resolutions (I just took the "higher" resolutions and put them here):
1280x960, 1280x1024, 1600x1200. That's it, no higher than 16x12, such a wasted opportunity on this refresh.
Now for the options:
Shadows (on/off), Grass (on/off), Low/Med/High presets, AA (Off/2/4/6/8), Anisotropy (Off/2/4/8/16), Frame buffer (On/off), Soft Shadows (on/off - completely greyed out for me), and Vertical Sync (on/off).
All in all, this is barely worth the price of admission for people who already own this game. The only additional selling point is integration with W7.
That being said, I'm not upset about spending another 20 on these classics, however I am disappointed by the mindless cash grab, by Lucasarts on this collection, without updating them further, for more modern machines...I didn't previously own KotOR2 on PC, and it's $20 to buy that game alone at retail, so both for 20 is ok.Read more ›
First off, the installer has some issues. It doesn't prevent game installation but it is sluggish and non-responsive, which will leave you thinking, "Is it doing anything?" It is, it just takes some time to process whatever you're telling it to do. Don't hit install multiple times or it'll try to run multiple times and it's just a headache. Overall, this isn't that big a deal. For a third release, however, I do have some complaints. I know upping the resolution on certain things can be tricky and that it needs to be done right but it can be done. This game's resolution still maxes out at 1024x768. In an age where 1080p is all the rage, they could have at least given us something. 720p hi def would have been nice. It seems like a waste. Really, I think that the only thing that they bothered to fix in this bundle is the fact that neither game worked well on Windows 7 64bit. I'm happy to say that this seems to be a thing of the past.Read more ›
Edit - Okay, I got it up and running on my system. I had to alt-tab out before it would lock up and go into the Processes through the Task Manager and set the CPU affinities so it would just run off of a single CPU. Works great now, so I am editing my review. It still locks up after the Lucasarts screen, but only every once in a while now. I've managed to get through a good portion of the first game with no troubles. It would have been nice to have it working right out of the gate, and maybe it will/does for most people.
Anyway, I will say that the graphics overall are a bit dated, but I can deal with that since they are actually better on the PC than they were on the original X-Box. The environments seem more alive on the PC version. Also I've found that the controls on the PC version are better than the X-Box version, which were a little clunky to be quite honest. Overall I am just happy to be able to play a slightly better version of the games I remember playing years ago. Also it's helping me to remember story details that I had forgotten about which is increasing my enjoyment of the SWToR MMO a little more now.
