Not compatible with the latest Mac OS -10.7! March 28 2013
By Scott Lincke - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had to return this immediately after purchase as it is not compatible with my new iMac running the latest version of OSX. One of the games will not load. I called the company and they said they had no plans to fix it or push out an update even though the version sold through the Apple store did get a patch to fix the problem. They suggested I send it back.

Older games, but a comfortable collection Dec 12 2010
By Mark McCullough - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you are like me and prefer to buy games that have been sitting on the shelf long enough for the initial excitement to wear off, the bugs to be fixed, and to know that the game is actually a good game or not, this is a package for you.

This is two games in one. The Knights of the Old Republic (often called KOTOR on web pages) and Empires at War.

Contrary to the comment made by the other reviewer, there is no major stability problem -- if you follow the package minimum requirements. The Macbook Intel GMA X3100 is explicitly not sufficient for KOTOR. It will however play Empires at War. Newer Macbooks use more advanced graphics cards and can play it fine. That isn't to say you will never experience a crash if you meet the requirements, but it was seldom enough that I was able to play it through a few times without having more than a couple crashes per playthrough.

KOTOR supports extensive modding from the community, which can increase the replay value of the game. Empires at War modding is much more primitive, and to be blunt, the game is not as well thought out. Game balance issues on the power of some space units impede the enjoyment some (too easy to figure out a nearly invincible space force).

If you don't have either game, this may be a better way to get both of them.

Absolutely Amazing! April 4 2011

I'd heard about the hype surrounding KOTOR for years. Yet, I never made the time to play it. Finally, when I upgraded my computer, I thought it was finally time to give the game a try. As a Star Wars fan, I couldn't have been happier. Here are a few key points:

STORY
The game has a very rich story, far better than most of the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Your character is a Force-sensitive Republic soldier who leads an odd assortment of characters to locate an ancient superweapon controlled by the Sith. However, along the way you face dozens of side quests and have to make decisions in how you respond to challenges. You get to influence the story through your choices and can eventually head down the light or dark path. Thus, decisions have consequences - and it's not just the very final decision in the game, but innumerable small decisions when conversing with characters. I played through once, but it's clear that I could play the game again in its entirety and it would be a very different experience.

CHARACTERS
The characters are undoubtedly the best part of the game. KOTOR manages to incorporate a fairly substantial leading characters and dozens of important supporting characters. Many of these have become fan favorites, including Bastila Shan, Canderos Ordo, Darth Malak, and of course Darth Revan. This is because each character has a unique personality and, more importantly, the grow and mature during the course of the game. You end up really caring about them by the time you're done.

GRAPHICS
This game was released in 2003, yet the graphics hold up surprisingly well. Certainly better than most of what I'm used to on the Wii. I'd love for BioWare to rerelease KOTOR with improved graphics, but there's really not much to complain about here. Of course, this might depend on how powerful your computer is and whether you're willing to risk smooth performance for better graphics (fortunately, my computer's really powerful, so I got both!).

GAMEPLAY
I was a bit worried that the RPG-style gameplay would detract from the combat experience. However, it's seamless. Your characters don't pause during turns, but rather keep fighting. If you order your characters to attack and then sit back, it becomes an almost cinematic experience. However, be sure to invest some time learning how the combat system works and about your equipment. After a few hours into the game, you'll find that you have far more items than you'll ever be able to master.

DRAWBACKS
I kid you not, my only complaint is the ending. After such a dramatic quest, it was a bit of a letdown. I was expecting a 10 minute cinematic denouement chronicling the fates of each character. Oh well...

STABILITY
I've read a lot of complaints about stability issues. Fortunately, I didn't experience much of this at all. I played through the entire game (around 50 hours) and it only crashed twice. However, I just got a new MacBook Pro, with the highest performance specifications, so my experience probably isn't typical. You will definitely need a powerful computer, but the game is good enough that you'll be able to put up with the occasional stability problem. Just be sure to save frequently.

After having played and beaten KOTOR, I'm simply left hungering for more. I'm going to try to get KOTOR II, but there's not much else out there. It's sad that Star Wars video games have only declined since KOTOR. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was a big disappointment. Hopefully, the new Old Republic game will bring back the glory days!

The price is right, and both games are great. Any Star Wars fan that owns a Mac should look into this bundle.
