Review – Knights of the Old RepublicPosted: July 31, 2012
So what has our blog had to offer so far? It contains lots and lots of pictures of the two of us in awesome outfits, which is nice! On this blog you can also listen to our music ofcourse which we hope you like! But still, it could have more to offer. So what are we thinking? We are thinking: youtube hair and nail tutorials, beauty product reviews, game reviews, restaurant and hotel reviews etc.. Basically, we’ll just share our experiences with you!
I (Jade) am currently trying out the crest 3D whitestrips and will let you know how they worked for me. But for now, I’m going to review a video game. It’s called ‘Knights of the Old Republic’. It’s a Star Wars game. Now, I don’t know how you feel about Star Wars. Some people (like me) are obsessed with it, when others think it’s stupid and/or boring as hell. Star Wars aside, you don’t HAVE to love Star Wars in order to love this game. So even if you’re not a fan, keep reading!
Okay, like many games, it takes a while before you really get into it. But once you do, it’s awesome! You start out on a crashing spaceship and you have to escape. This is basically a very long tutorial. Most stupid part of this tutorial is you DON’T have a lightsaber yet. You’re not even a jedi yet. So that’s a bit of a disappointment. Nevertheless, keep reading!
Once you get past this part it just gets better and better. Lightsabers in all kinds of colors, many different planets to explore, so many NPC’s to get to know and ofcourse, your quest! The fighting in the game is turn-based. At first I thought I wouldn’t like it (because I prefer hack ‘n slash games) but it’s really nice. And if you don’t like it, you can actually just unpause the game and hack ‘n slash anyway. A little harder, but it works just fine.
What do I like most about this game (apart from pink lightsabers)? I think the NPC’s and the story. You really get into this game. You can choose how you let your own character develop. Will you be a light side jedi? Or will you join the dark side sith? You also have followers with you who have their own story and who you can have quite the conversation with. Also, you can personalize everyone by letting them level up and choose upgrades, powers, attributes and skills for them.
Ofcourse, this game is a little out-dated already so don’t expect assassin’s creed-like graphics. But still, it’s really not bad! And ofcourse, if you ARE a Star Wars fan, this game is a must-play!
Below a couple more pictures, to show you guys what the game looks like, as well as a gameplay tutorial I found on youtube (in which the player really uses the turn-based system, but like I said, you don’t have to play it that way!). Enjoy, and may the force be with you!
