#1 – Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic
Release Date: July 15, 2003
Our pick for the greatest Star Wars game of all time is BioWare’s classic RPG: Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic. Featuring a story set 4000 years before the rise of the Galactic Empire, Star Wars: KOTOR offered a vast universe for players to explore, combined with a deep and tactical combat system. Players were given full reign over how their character developed, forcing them to make crucial decisions throughout the game’s extensive 40/50 hour-long journey.
Knights Of The Old Republic made for an unforgettable and immersive Star Wars experience, the likes of which have not been replicated since. While Star Wars: KOTOR II and Star Wars: The Old Republic offered some fantastic experiences, it was the first game in the series that generated the most critical acclaim and remains the most highly praised Star Wars game to date by a majority of fans.
The game launched on PC and the original Xbox, becoming the fastest selling Xbox title at the time of release. It was later released on the Steam platform in 2012, and ported to Android and iOS devices over the next two years.
It won numerous awards and currently holds a Metacritic score of 93/100. Offering a mix of incredible gameplay, authenticity, longevity, and a captivating story, KOTOR is one of the very best video games of all time. For those reasons and more, Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic is our #1.
