For one cheap price, you can now get five Star Wars games that been released previously during the past four years. Most of the five games are still selling for $19.95 at most stores around the country so that make it a pretty good deal. The games in this collection are listed as:

1) Empires at War

2) Knights of the Old Republic

3) Battlefront (first one)

4) Jedi Knights II Outcast

5) Republic Commandos

For some one who never played any of these games before, this is a great deal. If you played one or two of these games, you still got three or four more so it still not such a bad deal. The package also gives you a free 14 day trial for on-line Star Wars Galaxies game.

My rating is based on two elements. For the fun factor, it based on previous reviews I have read on these games since ironically speaking, I was planning to buy some of the games in this package separately before spotting this package on Black Friday. The overall rating is based on the value of the package. I think no one will ever doubt that five great Star Wars games in one package is not a "Five stars" value.

Obviously, if you owned and played all these games already, this package won't be worth a wooden nickel. This package appears to be created for late comers like myself or people who always wanted to play but never had the chance due to time, money or other factors. For folks like us, this package should provides countless hours of entertainment at a relatively cheap price.

I original bought this for Knights of the Old Republic because I missed it the first time around. Great game By the way... To my surprised I found the other games extremely fun, Republic Commando and Empire at war are great games. Battlefront was OK but still fun.

If you missed any of these games the first time around I high recommend this package.

Knights of the Old Republic: 9/10
Empire at War: 8/10
Battlefront: 7/10
Republic Commando: 8/10
Jedi Knight II: 8/10

Also if you buy this to play KOTOR, find the hex hack on the Internet so you can play this game in 1920x1200, makes for a more enjoyable experience then max 800x600 the game allows

A really good collection of older Star Wars games to try out. The downside of this collection is that Windows Vista is not compatible with many of these games. Unless patches are released, the games can not be played.

All of my friends who have played Knights of the Old Republic on the console system have enjoyed it as a really good and fun game. However, my computer had some interface problems with it. The movements were really choppy even when reduced to the less detailed levels, makes it extremely difficult to fight or explore around the map. The game plays in 1st person/ 3rd person shooter style. Wish that Bioware had programmed their Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic series more like Neverwinter Nights in game play interface instead of 1st / 3rd person shooter style instead.

Star Wars Battlefront was a really fun game to play, very similar to playing paintball with the quick rush and being able to respawn in the game. Your teammates fight better as you control more victory objectives.

There are some really fun maps to fight on that make it enjoyable, while the terrain on Endor and Yavin make it a bit challenging as even white storm trooper armor can seem to blend into the woods. Each map can be completed in less than 15 minutes. There are also neat nuances to the game, when entering the cantina on Tatooine, you can hear the band music in the background.

Also neat about the game is that you can play all the different factions from the Trade Federation to Rebellion. Have not tried the online play however.

Star Wars Republic Commando was a really fun game. 1st person shooter is very stable (those who get motion sick from 1st person shooters might be ok with this game) and best of all, have squad mates to work with.

I originally got this Star Wars Best Of PC package about 3 and a half years ago (I know, a long time to wait to write a review, but better late than ever)as a gift for my oldest son (Who is just shy of 14 now, 10 at the time). He ended up playing all 5 games but the one he really took a shine to was Republic Commando. Two of the games was just a little to strategic for him at the time (Battlefront and Empire At War)and did not get played as much. The other one he liked as well (Probably because it was a FPS like Republic Commando)was Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast. I just got through re-loading these games on my sons new gamer PC and got them all working under Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit and my Garage PC which is running Windows 7 Professional SP1 32 bit (See Specs below), and yes including Republic Commando (See fix and explanation also below)that has the problem of kicking back to windows when starting the actual game on the newer PCs. The Graphics on Battlefront, Empire at War, and Republic Commando are still exceptional despite thier realitve age (Some of these games are going anywhere from 7 to 9 years old) and well worth the $7 to $8 dollars a pop for them. With my son being older I think he will enjoy them more than when he was slightly younger.

Overall, Great Games for the money with hours and hours of entertainment.

Star Wars - Republic Commando fix:
The following Fix should work for the following Windows Operating Systems running the newer Video Cards from 2008 on...
