Product Description

Star Wars role playing experience with evolving characters including humans, droids & wookiees.


Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic takes place just a few years after the Mandolorian Wars, thousands of years before the events in the Star Wars movies we know and love. Two Jedi, master Revan and his apprentice Malak, led the Republic's forces to victory and pursued the Mandalorians into deep space only to return as Dark Jedi at the head of a huge fleet of Sith warships. Only the Force powers of the Jedi Bastila prevented the Sith from overwhelming the Republic's weakened forces. At the start of the game Malak has usurped control of the Sith by betraying Revan and has attacked the ship carrying Bastila and yourself. In true Star Wars style, the game begins with a bang.

The storyline could have been a standard coming-of-age yarn but is instead a genuinely interesting adventure told with humor, compassion, and respect for the source material. Your character has a mystical bond with Bastila, and the two of you share some kind of connection to the Sith villains Darth Malak and Darth Revan. The game's planet-hopping adventures are driven by your exploration of these connections and how they relate to your larger goal of discovering the source of the Sith's sudden fleet. During your adventure you can explore side quests minor (such as racing swoops or gambling) and major (such as uncovering the fascinating back stories of your companions). Star Wars fans will get a kick out of the rich lore introduced in the game, particularly the Tatooine storyline that reveals the origin and history of the Sand People.

Gameplay is an abbreviated form of Wizards of the Coast's d20 Star Wars RPG game system--anyone who has played Dungeons & Dragons will be familiar with the abilities, stats, feats, and bonuses in this game. The player creates a character as a member of one of three starting classes (soldier, smuggler, scout) and then later chooses a Jedi class (guardian, consular, sentinel). Joining the player's character are other Jedi, warriors, thieves, droids, a wookiee, and even a Mandolorian. Unlike the faceless non-player characters of other games, each member of the supporting cast has an intriguing history and even agenda. Up to two of these other characters can join your character at any time. Depending on who you chose to take with you, new dialogue and even intra-party arguments come into the game (put the Mandalorian veteran with the Republic patriot and you'll see sparks fly). Combat is real-time turn-based, meaning the turns are seamless but the player has the option of pausing the action at any time to issue orders or direct any character to use a certain Force power, ability, feat, or item.

Graphics range from adequate to exceptional. Building and character models are not impressive--about what you get in GTA 3. Lightsaber graphics and environmental effects (like waving grass, clouds, and weather) bring the world to life. Battles are just brilliant, with characters pumping out blaster fire at Jedi who dash, dodge, and even deflect the bolts back toward their assailants. Complete with sounds straight out of the movies, the thrilling combat is pure Star Wars.

All in all, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a masterpiece of Star Wars gaming. The pacing, balance of action and dialogue, clever puzzles and quests, and loving attention to detail have set the bar very high for role-playing games in general and Star Wars games in particular. Consider this a must-have game.--Mike Fehlauer

After only playing for 4 hours, I was totally taken in by this game. Star Wars fan or not, this game should please any XBOX owner. The story line is deep, so deep that you can be overhelmed by the amount of choices you have. The environments are stunning. The NPC's are a blast to talk to. There is so much to do in this game even in the first hour.
The learing curve is a little steep. I found that the turn based combat takes some getting use to. If you like the run in and shoot people kind of game, you may want to rent this first to see if you like the combat. Its based on D&D rules, +1, -2, hit miss stuff. I'm learning and its alot of fun.
You start off with a basic long blade. You have to work and spend time to become a Jedi and build a lightsaber. How long? I don't know. I can tell you that so far I've robbed some apartments, killed some people that had bounties on them, met a female Sith Solider at a bar. She invited my to a party where they proceeded to get loaded and pass out. Thats when I stole a Sith uniform and was able to go places where I normally couldn't. Now I'm learning the combat.
How good is this game? If you spend time with it, KOTOR will shine on your shelf and call to you when you walk by it.
WARNING: Your sex life may dimish with the purchase of this game.

Star Wars at its best!
Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is the best RPG you will find on your Xbox, PLUS it probaly is one of the best games around on the Microsoft Console.
Story: 10 out of 10.
Absolutely awesome. KOTOR is well scripted, has great plot twists and gives you the possibility of roaming both sides of the power in the best way any Star Wars game ever did. Forget Jedi Knights, if you liked that game, you will LOVE this game.
Furthermore, KOTOR is the best thing that happened to the Star Wars franchise since "The Empire Strikes Back." In my humble opinion, this game would have been a great movie and is BY FAR a better movie than the last two we have seen at the theatre.
Graphics: 10 out of 10.
Yo-hoo, go along in this awesome graphics bonanza. The Star Wars universe is wonderfully recreated in many of its aspects. Cities are wonderful to visit and explore, character skins and movements are close to perfection. Jedi powers are rendered in the best way ever, giving you the uttermost feeling of wielding the force in all its forms and ways.
Sound: 10 out of 10.
Compelling soundtrack is well blended into your actions, passing from mellow to upbeat themes as the action gets more frenetic. Sound FX are incredibly well done.
GamePlay: 10 out of 10.
Behold, this is an RPG. So it's not a first person shooter or a beat'em up. Combat has been a sort of an issue for fans of the latest Star Wars games (such as Academy). The Bioware Combat system is however the BEST I have ever seen on an RPG. You get all possibilities of deciding your tactics, but there still is the action flavour to what is going on.
Other Cool Things:
1)You get a bunch of NPCs (non playing characters) who will tag along, All have their own background and powers.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a truly spectacular video game that fully realizes the Star Wars universe better than any recent property, debatably including the last two films. While the path and story you take is largely linear, the way you can go about it is what truly separates KOTOR from other bland RPGs. Add in a vivid realization of the Star Wars universe, the best voice work in any game to date, and smooth controls and Bioware has itself another winner. The only noticeable flaw the game has lies in its graphics. While the worlds and ships you visit are full of spectacular vistas and sharp detail (notably the Sith world of Korriban), the game is susceptible to slowdown during both cutscenes and gameplay. KOTOR's huge successes only highlight this imperfection more noticeably. As sound goes, KOTOR is simply astounding. Voice actors put in literally thousands of lines that make for a truly cinematic experience. The fact that almost all are delivered with conviction and passion make it even more realistic. A nice touch is that the game also features separate languages and accents for different races. But what really puts the clincher on the package is the gameplay. with combat controls that flow nicely and the ability to queue up multiple actions in combat is handy. But the main draw of the game is that you can choose to be a light or dark Jedi. Both paths are exciting and original, especially because you can do some really vicious things as a Dark Jedi. Also, the story is good, there are many many side quests, and all the parts work to form a cohesive whole. Bioware and Lucasarts have truly outdone themselves.

Ok, I got this game a few months ago, and refrained myself from reviewing it until I beat at least one path. Here's the scoop:


-choose your path

-no button mashing

-incredible gameplay

-loveable characters

-great, and I mean great, immersive plot


-the graphics were nothing to drool about

-music is only ok, nothing special

-interface confusing at times

-barely any tutorial (I got used to everything very easily though, so no biggie)

For those of you who want a step by step breakdown, read on:

Gameplay- 98/100

Incredible. To put it simply, this game is easy to play, yet hard to master. You can choose the shortcut, or the hard way. The interface is the only thing that isn't amazing, however I was quickly able to figure out it's controls. As far as combat goes, I loved it. If you want to perform each punch with the press of a button, do not count on this to be your game, because it is automatic, turn based fighting. This makes it easier on you to heal yourself without being repeatedly hurt. Ok, enough explaining. On to graphics.

Graphics- 87/100

Good, but not "ooh," "ahhh," standard. If I saw anyone who wasn't from the stone age googling over these graphics, I would wonder about them. However, this does not hinder the gameplay. Nothing is slurred or choppy. The people and environments are nicely crafted, but nothing special.

Sound- 80/100

One word. Repetitive. Not that it isn't interesting the first few times, but after a whole game, I was still hearing some of the same music from the very beginning.
