5 out of 5 eggsGood if you got compatibility/trouble shooting skills

Pros: Great buy for five good games.
Classic games all the way.

Cons: Some games will not work unless you have either an older OS or you have a high durrability not to be irritated with jedi knight. Good luck with that.

Other Thoughts: Shells should have been built into jedi knight and comando for their issues. cando still runs fine if you have bmapping on low. but will crash if you don't. Jedi knight, the third in the dark forces seiries needs one unless you're an xp man.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Games

Pros: KOTR is an amazing series. I have yet to play KOTR2, but KOTR1 was amazing as well as the new TOR

BF is almost exactly like Battlefield, but Star Warsy and way more fun IMO. BF2 is good, but I think BF1 was way better because there are no Jedi.

Cons: SWG is no longer running. This is possibly the best game in the box anyways. I played for a total of 5 years before they closed it down, due to legal terms and with the new TOR coming out. So really, you just lost an entire game there.

Other Thoughts: Overall, still worth the buy, but I wouldn't pay $30+ for it unless you do not own all these games already.

2 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: Comes with quite a few games. They are all pretty much old school nerd games but can still be fun ( for some people).

Cons: I couldn't really get into most of the games because they are so old and bad. I didn't really enjoy KOTOR either even though I was recommended to it by many people. It's just SOOO OLD and boring.

Other Thoughts: If you are like me and you want to catch up on the hype but aren't sure whether or not you should buy this, then don't. It was a complete waste of my money. Buy Mass Effect instead.

5 out of 5 eggsGlactic Goodness

Pros: Awesome set of games in this box set. Some of the best ever made and the graphics are still good by today's standard so think about that for a minute. KOTR, need I say more? All the multiplayer games still have a lot of active servers. It was dwindling for a while but when they released the new movies back when, it boomed for us.

Cons: None, never experienced the crashing some get.

Other Thoughts: Large maps, lots of action and even some honest to goodness thinking required on some of the games. Get this collection, it's some of my favorite games.

4 out of 5 eggsThe force is strong!

Pros: For the price I was able to get 3 games I do not own and a backup of the 2 games I already own. If you like Star Wars these games are for you.

Cons: It comes with 3 discs and you have to use all of them to play some of the games.

Other Thoughts: I am not entirely sure if the games are pre-patched but all the patches I downloaded said the game was not installed so it would not patch to the newest version.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: This is the 4th highest ranked game all time for the Xbox on Gamrankings. It's #11 all time for the PC. That's a glowing reccomendation IMO, so I won't give much of my personal take. I bougth this solely for KOTOR, which I've played the XBox version, but which has sound/music/crash issues due to the translation to XBOX360, so I wanted it for the PC. Graphics and sound are much richer on the PC. PC interface and inventory management are much bette than the XBox version.

Cons: Controls are a bit clunky compared to Xbox, but I'm getting used to them. Specifically it looks like it should control like any other 3D Shooter, but mouse look and turning do not feel responsive. I'm still playing with optimizing the controls however, so this isn't a huge con.

Other Thoughts: Installation: I didn't have any problem installing this on XP, however, some have had issues installing on XP or Vista, and my best piece of advice for installing old games (5+ years old) on new PCs IF you are having a problem is to install them from Windows SAFE MODE.

CRASHING: I didn't put this in cons because it crashes on every system it seems so we're all going to have this issue. Many people on the Bioware forums have had multiple reasons for crashing be they sound or graphics issues. However, the largest issue seems to be problems with the OPENGL translation. The solution I found for NVIDIA cards is to do the following:
Go to Nvidia control panel
Go to Advance Settings
Go to Manage 3d Settings
Go to Programs Settings
Add swkotor.exe
Scroll down to Conformant Texture Clamp,
Select "USE OPENGL SPECIFICATION"

That should fix alot of the crashing issues. I was crashing every 5 minutes (literally) before I did this and haven't crashed since.

5 out of 5 eggsBEST GAMES EVER

Pros: I am a huge Star Wars nut, and seeing this beautiful collection of games made me jump with joy. I don't have the game yet, but it should be here shortly. But, once it does come in, it's gaming time. :)

Cons: Absolutely none

Other Thoughts: No other game out there can give you the same wonderful feeling you get from Star Wars.The price is insanely reasonable, and I'd pay double even triple for a game like this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal!!

Pros: Comes with five different games, and a trial for Star Wars Galaxies. Can't find it anywhere else and for the price I couldn't ask for more.

Cons: Had some problems installing KOTOR(Knights of the Old Republic); but after talking to people at Lucasarts I finally got it running!

Other Thoughts: Took a little longer then I would have liked to install KOTOR; but once I got it running I couldn't be happier! I also got Republic Commando installed. I haven't played that in a long time and am glad to play it again. If your wanting to get this I'd get it before its gone. You can't find these games very easily anymore, and for the price what could be better?

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work like it should!

Pros: Comes with 5 games; I've owned all of them at one point or another and am glad that I had one more chance to get these again (especially since you can't find the best of pc in stores anymore).

Cons: KOTOR (Knights of the old Republic) isn't working!! That game was the reason that I decided to buy it, and it wont even install!! It'll get maybe 95% finished and just stop. Overall I'm very disappointed right now about this and am considering returning it.

Other Thoughts: I think its just a bad copy of KOTOR. There's not even a fingerprint on the disk and it wont install. Like I said above I'm very disappointed about this, you can't find the original KOTOR anywhere anymore and this is basically the only way you can still play it.
