Reviews and Problems with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Showing 1-7 of 7
Do not buy if you have Windows 7
27 October 2011
Summary: If you are running windows 7 on a newer PC than I would not suggest you buy this package. I was only able to get 2 of the 5 games to work, Battlefront and Republic Commando. Both of those games were pretty good and I did enjoy them, however you can buy each of them separately for much less than this package. I really bought this for Knights of the Old Republic but that game will not function on Windows 7.
Summary: bought for knight of the old republic, jedi outcast, and empire at war. I have a fairly new 64 bit machine, win 7 ultimate, 8 gigs of ram, newish nvida card, quad core 2.54 ghz processor, and plenty of hard drive room and the only program that works (of the three i tried) was jedi knight II: Outcast. Knight of the old republic continuously crashes under different settings and compatibility modes. I can't even get empire at war to install after dozens of different tries.
Summary: This game wasnt what i expected. The previous ones had better game play. What i disliked about this game is that the mouse and player movement wasnt cordinated. The mouse would move the camer angle when the player simply move forward. It also had the two player ability where during single player missions, you were able to switch players as one followed another.
Summary: This game was truly awful. Although it wasn't difficult to play, what you expect out of a game and get are two different things and i was certainly expecting a much different delivery, however it should be noted that this was the first KOTOR i played and therefore subject to some bias.
Summary: (5.0)...its better than the second one. In fact I think ill go play it right now... now... now... now... now... now... now.... now... now... (i just did that cause you need 25 words to submit a review...
Summary: Can't get the game to *start up*. I downloaded & installed the latest patch for the game, and all my drivers are up to date. DirectX is the most recent version. I have a new ATI Radeon 9200, which the retail box says is a compatible graphics card. This has become all-too-common in the PC games industry, releasing games that don't work on certain video cards, etc. According to many reviews, this is a really cool game, but it's not too cool if it doesn't run at all!
WARNING - Check your graphics card before you buy!

Summary: We bought this game from a national retailer without reading the (extremely) fine print on the bottom of the box. On loading, the game informed us that our computer "Failed the graphics card test." That's as far as we got. The store won't take back opened software. The game requires a high-end ATI or NVIDIA card with OpenGL 1.4, DirectX 9.0, and Hardware Transform and Lighting compatibility.
