Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic (Switch)

Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic is seen by many as the best Star Wars video game of all time, and with good reason. The BioWare RPG told a fantastic story with complex characters and really felt like part of the evocative Star Wars universe. Now, Nintendo Switch owners have the opportunity to take the title on their preferred platform thanks to a port from developer Asypr.

First released in 2003 for Xbox and PC, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is set more than 4,000 years before the Star Wars movie event, though things may seem similar. After the Mandalorian Wars, a conflict broke out between the Sith and the Galactic Republic, and the character of the player was caught in the middle of this war. Collecting a series of characters to help them fight, the player travels from world to world within the Star Wars universe.

One of the main reasons the Knights of the Old Republic are so well appreciated is his story, and nothing has changed in that regard since 2003. Although times have changed, the story and twists still occur today, and it is undoubtedly one of the best Star Wars stories ever written. Meanwhile, the story is supported by a number of characters who are still icons today and set the pattern for what BioWare will continue to create in future projects.

It certainly helps that Knights of the Old Republic dates back to the golden age of Star Wars video games. Along with Jedi Outcast and Republic Commando, Star Wars fans were blessed with a series of games that truly understood what Star Wars was, showing bold and different visions of intellectual property. Knights of the Old Republic is perhaps the best in the group, and his story – which shuns the eugenics of the small-scale universe of several powerful families controlling the galaxy’s fate – definitely understands what Star Wars is all about more than a modern film trilogy.

Knights Of The Old Republic 2Knights of the Old Republic was something rather bold at the time from a structural perspective, although it may seem strange to modern players. His template will be very familiar to Mass Effect fans, with a player who will get group members and talk to them to gain their trust as he travels between different planets as they embark on their adventure. There is even a spaceship that can be explored which player is using, which provides additional chances to better understand his companions.

Nevertheless, the Knights of the Old Republic feel his age in several places, that is, in his presentation and play. His graphic loyalty is understandable for a game almost 20 years old, but novices may think that its combat system is too rigid. It doesn’t have the same feel of free-flowing modern BioWare games, which relies more on invisible dice in older titles like Baldur’s Gate, although those who played the original Dragon Age will find it tastier than those who only witness the shooting of later Mass Effect titles. -a.

Knights Of The Old Republic 3This is really the only obstacle that players can have with Knights of the Old Republic on the Switch. This is a port, not a remaster or remake, although Aspyr is currently working on a remake of KOTOR, so players should not expect additional announcements at the 2003 game. There are a few tweaks here and there, most notably larger text boxes that are quite useful when playing in handheld mode, but the overall changes from the original release are negligible.

All in all, this means that Knights of the Old Republic is still one of the best games ever made, even if it didn’t get any special improvements on its older versions. The main attraction here is that players can finally enjoy the title on the go via Switch, and for Star Wars fans who have never played the game before, this is another opportunity to enjoy one of the best Star Wars stories ever told. There is no doubt that there will be a debate about the PC against the Switch for Knights of the Old Republic, and those who already own the game miss nothing if they ignore this new port, but none of it takes away from one of the true classics of the early 2000s. them.
