I have played KOTOR through so many times over the years that I basically have everything memorized, and this iOS version works surprisingly well. It’s crazy to me that my phone has way more pixels than the computer monitors this game was built for. The gameplay is pretty perfect for the necessarily clumsy touchscreen controls, as combat has an iconic built-in pause mechanic. I’m really excited that a new generation of gamers will get to experience one of the best games of all time, and on their phones to boot. KOTOR 2 (bug-fixed mod version) next? *HOWEVER*, the reason this review is 4 stars instead of 5 is the mini-games: specifically the star-fighters and the swoop races. In the star-fighter mini-game, you can’t move the turret and fire at the same time, which is horrifically bad porting, and will make flying from planet to planet gradually more annoying as the game progresses. The swoop races also need a total overhaul, as they were hard on PC controls, let alone on a touchscreen. There are PC mods out there that make the tracks easier, though I’ve never had to use them on that platform. I definitely want to use them on this one.
It's pretty sad how buggy this thing is, I've started saving my game after every encounter. Can't start the swoop race because I can't select the announcer and obviously can't get out of the hall because you have to race at this point. Sketchy controls was a bummer too. Having the ability to play knights on the go seemed like a no brainer and the reviews are great. Sometimes I wonder about the weight of those reviews. Visually it's perfect, sometimes the sound is off. If I can get through this app I will have gone thru KOTOR more times then I have fingers.. I'd rather dust off the OL BOX and bring this game back to life. I'll consider the 5 dollars I spent on this app a donation for the wonderful years the StarWars franchise has given me. Update: 2 days after 1st review. Restarted a new game, got the accelerator and the "can't interact with anything" bug kicks on.. about an hour of gameplay before the bug originally happen. Restarted a new and the bug kick on when I first got to the under city. After deep research it seems the only way to fix this is to save your game a lot, A LOT. Restarting while the game is open does not help. This is one of my favorite rpgs ever but not on iOS. It's garbage on iOS. Before buying read as many reviews as you can. THIS BUG HAS HAPPEN TO MANY PEOPLE. It would be nice if this bug can get fixed.. anything with the starwars name is making fat cash so I don't think this request is too far fetched.
To: Aspyr Media, Inc. In my resent play-through of my game, I noticed a bug in the entrance of the Jedi Enclave. I was using my main character fighting NPC's away from the enclave grounds, and I switched characters to my Utility Droid. Immediately I noticed My droid was away from the combat zone, and somehow on the side of the upper level entrance of the enclave, in an out of the map kinda scenario. I think somehow when I spawned in the outside area, my droid was rendered outside of the map, unable to move and effectively stalled from engagement. I took a picture to show what I mean. I personally have no problems with glitches in games, but I felt it best to let you know. Love the game by the way, on of my favorites, but you should really consider doing the second game Knights of the old republic 2. It has some of the best dialogue written for a game. It had greater gameplay and combat mechanics, and offered amazing elements unknown to games today. It was an all around superior game, and the fans of the series would love nothing more than for it to come back. If offered with the restored content, the game could be a great way to bring fans into the App Store. And if offered with the option to Mod the game, it would attract even more customers.
Just got off the Endire Spire and so far so good. This is a port of a fairly old game so people complaining about graphics need to understand that, I actually think it looks better on my iPad Air than it did on Xbox or PC. To those complaining there is too much reading... kids this is how old school RPGs were before everyone became ADHD or drinking too much flouride. They didn't hold your hand on every little thing. have some curiosity, explore your interface, you can figure this out. I like it so far. Only real complaint is movement is a little clunky. I would have preferred some type of joystick for left thumb instead. Otherwise it seems to function pretty well. Another bit of old school advice, Save Early and Save Often! Do not rely on autosave. I have always used TWO different saves, alternating each time just in case I got myself into a bad spot and needed to reload farther back. Just do it, you can thank me later. As a fan I'm glad to have another chance to play KotOR and relieved that it was done well enough to enjoy. May the 4th be with you!
Great game overall, this is the first time I've played it again in many years. But the iPad adaptation is not perfect. The biggest issue I noticed while playing is that the kiss scene at the end with Carth is completely gone. The dialogue is there, but doesn't approach you. He just stands there. I haven't romanced Bastila yet so I could say about her, but I couldn't help feeling a little upset that I didn't get any payoff for all that whining I had to put up with. The other issues are minor, like that all water is invisible except on Manaan and the Unknown Planet. A couple cylinders on the Unknown Planet caused my character to have a seizure when I tried to open them. There was a lot of lagging and skipping on Kashyyyk, (and on other planets, but to lesser extents) even after I turned off grass and shadows. If I wanted lag I would just go play Swtor. Also, the characters never sheathe their weapons. I can't remember if they did on the original version, but it looked really weird to carry them in hand the entire game. That's all I really encountered bug-wise, but these did hamper my RPG experience more than I would have liked. Please fix these issues.
