Summary: Don't bother, only reason to purchase from here was for the bonus item. Same price as directly from bioware. But alas no in-game item was provided. Update, jumped the gun a little bit. The cartel coins will be instantly credited to your account, up insertion of the key code. Expect to wait about an hr for the in-game email for your item to arrive.
Summary: the games themselves are great, the two disk set i recueved however were scratched, if it were in better condition i'd give it 5 stars, i love all the games here but my disk 4 out of 5 games had a glitch of some sort.
Summary: A family member had recommended Dragon Age for the PC (another BIOWARE product) and when I visited the forums and product reviews, the most postive endorsement I encountered was a reviewer who felt the game play was just like Star Wars, Knights of the Old Republic. (SWKOTOR) I like the Star Wars mythology. It's logical and beautiful and after I'd read the game descriptions of this collection, both SWKOTOR and Republic Commandos sounded really appealing.
Summary: It is true that the games on this DVD compilation frequently do not install and/or run. The compilation itself includes a layer of UI to install and run the games, so the binaries were definitely modified from the standalone. I am a computer guy and have multiple PC's and OS's at home, Win 7, Vista, XP SP2 and 3, even Win 2000. None of them worked, crashing at various points in either the install or initial game load.
Summary: my son bought this game. Ive been in constant contact with tech support for 4 days trying to get this resolved. 2 of the 4 games will not play. At first they said it was because I have vista, so i then installed it on my pc with XP, still 2 wont play, play screen comes up, but then doesnt recognize the disk. I dont know what to tell my son, he worked very hard to save his money for this game, and lucas arts isnt resolving the issue.
Summary: the gfx's are Technologically impressing, But I question the artistic direction of the game, I am not very far in the game, Taris was not looking very good to me. The poly's are there but the maps are not so great.. Dantoine is very repetitive... the animation is generally good, but sometime without gravity.. and the design of character/ monsters, ... are very normal nothing great. The fact that your character is never "speaking" is breaking the flow of conversation.
Summary: I LOVED this game on the xbox when it came out and enjoyed so many hours on it and KOTOR II came out. Now the game looks old and dated on my PC. The controls feel clunky and slow, the game has not held up well over time as the graphics look like an old Playstation one game now to me. My memory of the game and the reality now that I replayed it are definitely different. I didn't play through the game again on my PC as it wasnt as fun as other games available now.
