Summary: An old but very good and enjoyable game. There are problems with modern video cards and with windows 7 which have to a great extent been overcome by disabling the movies, playing as administrator and in compatability mode windows XP with Service Pack 2. Really enjoying it. It has realistic difficulty levels and if you are really stuck there are some good walkthroughs available.
Star Wars Best of PC has some nice gems in the bunch

Summary: I originally got this Star Wars Best Of PC package about 3 and a half years ago (I know, a long time to wait to write a review, but better late than ever)as a gift for my oldest son (Who is just shy of 14 now, 10 at the time). He ended up playing all 5 games but the one he really took a shine to was Republic Commando. Two of the games was just a little to strategic for him at the time (Battlefront and Empire At War)and did not get played as much.
Awesome game, great gameplay, awesome characts, diverse... But a lil choppy

Summary: I bought this item because I had heard it was an amazing RPG game (plus I love Star Wars), and it sure lived up to its reputation. It has an incredible storyline and gives freedom to the player to decide whether to be good or evil. The only problem I have with this game is in this mac version, it is quite choppy at times and lags a bit, something I had to deal with throughout the game, but it still didn't stop me from playing!
Summary: I bought this combo pack strictly for Knights of the old Republic which is a great RPG. If you are a star wars fan this is a must have. The main point of the game is being able to chose light side or dark side actions through the entire game. Some of the actions affect the main story line where other atcions just result in items that you recieve or simply moving further to the dark side or the light side. Kind of long though.
Summary: I absolutely loved this game and also it's sequel. I have Fallout 3 and Oblivion, but I haven't ever had as much fun with them as I have with KOTOR. This game allows you a ton of room to decide your fate. The sabers, guns, swords, grenades and mines...such a diverse set of unique weapons that are all fun to use. The dialogue choices, storyline and character ineractivity are all amazing. I would sell my soul to the devil to play another game as good as this one was.
Summary: The story is fairly high quality and fun to experience, I'd say if you can make it through the first two or so hours of the game (the tutorial) then you will probably really enjoy this. Combat is fun and you truly feel a sense of progression as you move from location to location and you gain experience and levels.
Summary: How could a Star Wars RPG be anything less than stellar? Well if it's KotOR, perfection slips from its hands thanks to the crappy combat system. Perhaps folks who are particularly fond of turn-based fighting enjoyed it, but I had some difficulty in the beginning. I got used to it, but only chagrinedly so. Thankfully every other aspect of the game makes up for it. Everything from character creation to the light or dark side choices is enjoyable.
Summary: All of the games are fun to play and I really liked Jedi Knights of the Old Republic. Old Republic does crash frequently so save often. I emailed Lucas Arts and they said that Vista was not tested and that I was on my own.
