KOTOR II now please! (And reboot KOTOR III while you’re at it) - Game is outstanding. It starts out slow when you don’t have access to a lightsaber but once you do it’s great. Took me 26 hours to beat, though I tried to be thorough with the quests so I’m sure you could do it faster. Also, be prepared for a decent amount of slow travel… Tatooine’s Dune Sea is a vast area of virtually nothing but sand, which is a little boring. I know this is useless now but it would have been cool to still be able to play around after you beat it - instead, once you kill Malak, they take you through some cut scenes and then return you to the main menu. You can’t continue questing or leveling up after that. Also, truly would have enjoyed further character customization. Regardless, worth every penny, definitely a good way to procrastinate around finals for me :) No noticeable bugs playing on a late 2011 MBP i7 16GB RAM. Now if only we could get KOTOR II back… it’s been a very long time since I played that. And for the love of God, please reboot KOTOR 3, I know it was cancelled in its production, but with SW Episodes 7, 8, and 9 on the way, there’s going to be a MASSIVE market. Battlefront is already taking advantage of this, but I’d rather play an RPG as a customizable character with a versatile storyline manipulated by decisions you make along the way, not some guided storyline that the Battlefront games usually bring to the table. Overall awesome game though, just wish there were more like it!

Version 1.3.8
Review by Brian Grefrath

ITS A TRAP! - I have a brand new computer with OS X Yosemite, I was so excited to be able to play this game again and must say that people don’t give it enough credit in the modern day, it is ten years old, what kind of graphics do you expect?!? The problem is that the game doesn’t run at all, it “quits unexpectedly” before even booting and when I press reopen I get the same message like there has been no effort to retry the program. After paying 10 dollars for this game and getting so excited to be reunited with an old friend, I wonder why it is that Apple, Lucasarts, or whomever is responsible for this version has neglected to do any quality control in this matter. There’s a thin line between neglegence and theft here. And it’s alarming when the aforementioned companies seem to be really good at quality control, not to mention Bioware who has made a whole slew of great games including this one (well, not this version). The game itself is awesome and is a must-play for Star Wars and RPG fans alike. I am ashamed to give it only one star, but there is no lesser choice without rating it. Should be a five star game hands down and if APP STORE had any guts, they’d put my review first so people wouldn’t be tricked as I have. Oh, and may the force be with you!

Review by David W1

Excellent Porting to Mac - This game has been a long time favorite of mine when I had a PC. So I was definitely interested when I heard I could get it on Mac. I’m playing it on a 13” Late 2013 rMBP 2.6ghz with 8gb RAM and a 512 gb SSD. I’m playing on the integrated IRIS graphics. It works very well. You can use standard mods (though it took some internet searching to find out how). However TSL launchers appear to require third party software and I have not tested them. Temperature wise, the game makes the Mac run at 74-82℃. Battery wise, it runs down quick (I went from 90% to 50% in a little less than an hour) and it is best to play plugged in. I use a laptop pad fan when plugged in to try to keep it cool (no idea if it works or if it’s a placebo). It only crashed once—and that was because of a Mod added to the program. It was not the fault of the program at all. I have never run into the spinning beach ball when playing. Contrary to what some reviews have said, the movement keys do work. Just remember that the default keys are WASD, not the arrow keys. If you want arrow keys, you’ll need to change that in the options. Just remember that the arrow keys on a 13” are very close to the Return key, and it’s easy to accidentally hit the return key instead of the Up Arrow key, and you won’t move. Considering the game is about 12 years old and was getting buggy on a PC, it was a pleasant surprise to see it work flawlessly on Mac. Now, if only Aspyr would do KotOR II...

Version 1.3.8
Review by James Howsmon

Great game, decent port - This game is a legend, for good reason. It’s story and development is unmatched by almost any other game in history. It’s starting to show it’s age, but if you can get past the outdated graphics and mechanics, it’s worth the $10 you’re paying for it. I’d pay $30. This game has some replay value as well, given that you can choose between being a combat based character, force based, or skill based, as well as choosing between a light side and dark side play through. The port to Mac is pretty good, a few minor issues. When I started the game, it was zoomed in on the upper left corner of the game. Toggling the graphics settings in options corrected that. I had a couple issues where after “opening” an object (footlocker, remains, etc) my character couldn’t move for 10 seconds or so. Only happened a few times per planet, and could be corrected by selecting another object or person to fix your path to that which you selected. Overall, I had a much better experience with this version than the PC “Steam” version. Controls were nice, used “w” to move, ‘a’ and ‘d’ to move the camera and adjust your path, and click mouse to select something (‘right clicking’ or in this case, clicking the trackpad with two fingers was required during swoop racing), ‘tab’ to change which character in your party is selected. The first planet, Taris, is long and sometimes slow but the game picks up

Review by RET28

5 Stars is an understatement - I played this game back on PC and was ecstatic to see that it had bee adapted for Mac. This game is in the top 5 games I have ever played in my life. Are the graphics outdated? Yes. Is the combat not the greatest? Sure. But if you are a fan of Star Wars, RPGs, or video games as a whole, you would be doing yourself a huge disservice if you did not play this game at some point in your life. I have replayed this game over and over again, and each time I enjoy just as much as the first time. It truly is a legend in the RPG genre. It crashed a a handful of times in the over 100 hours I’ve spent playing this game, but you should be saving your games anyways. In conclusion, I have no doubt that I will continue to love this games for years to come.

Version 1.3.8
Review by Larry Landen

Fantastic! Entertaining and Well-Made - This is a stellar game, with great graphics, gripping story line, nice character abilities and upgrades, challenging, with the ability to play light side or dark, plenty of online help and guides, and something I will play multiple times with different approaches. Great on iPad, and iPhone. There is a version in the iTunes App Store too, but can't sync gameplay between devices.
