Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic review
Knights Of The Old Republic

The good:


The bad:



This game is THE best Star Wars game ever. It is classified as an RPG but has lots of action in it. The game starts with a character creator, and the only problem with this game and all other games with this feature is the lack of chracter models. You only 6 chracter models to chose from, and there are just about as many faces to chose from. There are a few more hair styles, but nothing to get excited about. You then chose your skills and feats which can be quite confusing although the game does give you some help here. THe real game starts out with your ship coming under attack. You wake up meet a guy and then choose what you will say to him from a pre-selected list of sentences as you will do for the rest of the game. Basically the rest of the game plays out like this, and it's fun. You'll then meet Bastila and follow her for a good part of the game. You'll also gaperience for each enemy you kill and somtimes you gain party members. There are 9 in all but you can sometimes pass up or, unbeknownst to you, kill your would-be party member. This is how the game is played, just like real-life. If it were Star Wars...
The story takes place thousands of years before the Star Wars movies. Our story goes that 2 former Jedi knights named Malak and Revan returned from the Mandalorian wars with a large fleet. They had gone from the Light side to the Dark side. Bastila and a group of Jedi Knights led an attack on Revan and Malak using her Battle Meditation (you aren't told specifically what it is, but later you can assume that it is the ability to see the future). Malak, the apprentice, as is accustomed in Sith training fired on Revans ship killing Revan and barely leaving Bastila and the Knights with her the time to escape. There are billions of paths you can take and there isn't just a single question from a mentor that will lead you to the Light or Dark side. I suggest you try to stay neutral. Get some light get some dark so you can play both sides.

The graphics in this game are quite good. Better than Morrowind but the game is just as large to explore. The cut scene graphics are really nice but my Xbox (God rest its soul) slowed down during some of the more intense explosions.
