Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Game Over Online
8 September 2015
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: At least five major-budget MMORPGs have come and "gone" - that is to say, their subscriber base swelled initially then shrunk dramatically - since Blizzard's hugely successful World of Warcraft was released at the end of 2004.

19 December 2011
Excerpt: Star Wars: The Old Republic is an MMORPG created by BioWare and distributed by EA that features Star Wars lore and the opportunity to play as a Jedi, Sith, Bounty Hunter, Smuggler, Commando and more.
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.

Pros: Fantastic Star Wars story, Superb voice acting, Dark or Light - your moral choices decide
Cons: Or just pick an allegiance at the end, Minigames can be frustrating, Item collecting can be redundant
