KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC
For over three generations, the best Jedi game
What better game to kick off a history of Star Wars on Xbox than with the beloved Knights Of The Old Republic. This classic is considered not only to be one of the best Star Wars games ever made, but one of the best role-playing games ever on Xbox. Set almost 4,000 years before any Skywalker was on the scene, you take control of a soldier for the Galactic Republic who, after showing a strong affinity to the Force, trains to become a Jedi Knight to stop the evil Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Malak, from creating an unstoppable Sith armada. Or not. As is common with BioWare RPGs the game features a morality system, and depending on your actions or dialogue choices, your Force alignment will tilt toward the Light or Dark side, altering the story. This means that instead of stopping Darth Malak, you can succumb to evil and usurp him to become the new Dark Lord.
The spectacular story was penned by Drew Karpyshyn, who also wrote several StarWars novels as well as the story for the first two MassEffect games, and contains one of the most surprising twists in gaming. But its crowning achievement was giving you, for the first time in a StarWars game, a real sense that this was your story. Unlike previous games with predefined characters, you created your own. As a result, the moment you get to create your own lightsaber and start your journey to become a Jedi Knight is all the more unforgettable, as are the iconic characters and people you meet on this planet-hopping adventure. A must-play game for any
StarWars fan. n
