A Trio of Star Wars: KotOR Reviews

A small handful of reviews have popped up for LucasArts and BioWare’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The first is at Gaming Illustrated, where they gave the PC version a 90%:

I have found few bad things to say about KOTOR and I would say this is one of the best RPGs on the PC, due to the fact it isn’t set within the timeframe of the movies also means you don’t have to know a thing about Star Wars to enjoy it as well. One of the very top PC games this Christmas!

The second is at RPGCodex with no “score”, but a positive conclusion:

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this is the best CRPG they’ve ever done and it’s also the first CRPG they’ve ever done without multiplayer, either. Without being forced to concede things because you might have multiple human controlled Jedi running around on the same planet, BioWare has managed to do something they just haven’t seem to have done before. That is, make a CRPG with a lot to do and lots of ways to do it. Now, if only they’d figure out how to make a decent tutorial, combat system, and so forth, then they might actually live up to something.

And the third is at Sphinx’s Sanitarium with no “score”, but a positive conclusion once again:

On a personal side note I want everyone to do this. At a point in the game you get a light saber. Be sure to turn your woofer way up when this happens. It made my head spin seeing my character wield that weapon. Not because of any phallic interpreation that I’m sure would make an Freudian have a field day but because of the way the sound and motions are so well captured and will greatly remind any fan of the Star Wars universe just one of the reasons why they probably enjoy it so much.
