Star Wars: The Old Republic's latest expansion is the next best thing to a Knights of the Old Republic sequel
28 October 2015
Excerpt: The new expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic – Knights of the Fallen Empire – launches today. And it may be the most peculiar MMO expansion that I’ve ever played, mainly because it is hardl
Excerpt: The first point that should, perhaps, be made is that this is not the Star Wars you may be expecting. It's set thousands of years before the original trilogy of films, four years after the Mandalorian Wars, when an alien race of warriors swept across the Republic for no reason other than because it...
Excerpt: I’ve never been a true Star Wars fan myself, all that space blurb never managed to appeal to me… and probably never will. Add to this that TV series or movies transformed into games hardly managed to please me and you can imagine my first impression of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was all...
Excerpt: The enthusiastic reception of Knights of the Old Republic definitely had something to do with it, but Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords came out quickly enough that it was doubtless already being planned.
Excerpt: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, RPG fans had never heard of a Mass Effect and no one was talking Dragon Ages.

Excerpt: The Iowa class of battleships were the pinnacle of capital ship design: They had power, speed, and plenty of protection, and they proved their worth time and again over their operational history (reactivated and decommissioned several times, the Iowas were mothballed for good in 1990s).

Excerpt: Bioware is famous for developing some of the best RPGs (Role Playing Games) in the world of computer gaming. Its Neverwinter Nights w/ expansions and Baldurs Gates 1, 2 w/ expansions have gotten many awards over the past few years.
Pros: Excellent graphics, voice-acting and gameplay. Lots of mini-games inside to provide you with a break from all the missions and quests you have to complete. All party members have different and interesting personalities, some members might come in conflict with each other if you pair them up.
Cons: A numbers of technical problems that bugs your gaming experience, need a big harddrive to run it.
Excerpt: Other reviews for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 gave it high marks for pretty much being more of what they got out of the first game taking an "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" approach.
Conclusion: Lasting Value With just three classes to choose from at the beginning, it may appear that the replayability in the game is potentially lacking. As I found out in my short viewing of KotOR at E3, first impressions can be misleading.
