This game single-handedly got me into RPGs. The story is incredible and the characters are interesting. There's all kinds of awesome jedi powers you can have. I liked that since this was the first RPG I ever played, it was easy to get into. The controls and gameplay are great for beginners and veterans. You can choose all kinds of skills to build up depending on what you want your character to be. There's even a light and dark side element to it and that, along with how you play the game and what you say to people, affects the ending of the game. This is incredible and a must play for any gamer. I give it a 10, out of 10.
It`s hard not to incoherantly rant about a game like Knights of the Old Republic. It quite simply is the best RPG/Adventure title of 2003. Period. Its story is absolutely brilliant. The gameplay, graphics, and sound are also excellent. Ultimately though, it`s the freedom that gamers will appreciate; EVERYTHING from storyline to appearances to NPC interaction will change based on the decisions gamers make. Ultimately this is a MUST for any gamers collection. Rent it. Buy it. Play it.
