A Game with Real Plot, Jan 28 2005
If, as a gamer over the age of 25, you have been searching for a game that has plot, look no further. Yes, as many reviews have said, this game excels on many levels - graphics, combat, RPG elements, etc. However, the thing that really stands out is the in-depth storyline and the multiple paths you can take through it. I was not really a big fan of the recent Star Wars movies, as they destroyed the romance of my youthful experience in the first movies. KOTOR redeems the franchise, with no thanks to Lucas himself.
Video-games are still experimenting with what is really possible in the medium. They are not movies, they are not books, they are not boardgames, and - yes - they are way more than 'arcade' games. The developers at Bioware are blessed with the ability to infuse the games they make with the REAL stuff. The real mark of a classic is that, even when technology has moved on, we still enjoy the experience. Think of old movie classics. In 10 years, people will still be playing this game...
