Just under a year ago, Aspyr Media made the dreams of many come true by bringing the classic Bioware RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic [$9.99] to the iPad. We thought it was a stellar port, and pretty much a must-own for anyone with an iPad. However, the release did leave iPhone and iPod touch gamers out in the cold, but Aspyr fixed this last December when they updated the game to be Universal. Since its release on iOS, Knights of the Old Republic has seen quite a few sales, but none as drastic as the one currently taking place. In celebration of May the 4th (as in "May the 4th Be With You") the game has been put on sale for just $3.99 down from its regular price of $9.99.


Needless to say, if you're a fan of Star Wars and/or deep RPGs and for whatever reason haven't yet picked up Knights of the Old Republic, now is the time to do so. While it definitely feels dated–it was released more than a decade ago after all–KOTOR is one of the deepest RPGs you can get on iOS, and easily felt worth its original ten dollar asking price. Four bucks for this gem is quite simply insane. It appears this sale will be running at least through this Sunday, May 4th, so if you're interested then you better jump all over Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic before the sale ends.

    This is about as good as it gets, right here. KOTOR is generally regarded as one of the best RPGs ever made, and this port is the best version yet.

      It's really not the best port. Some areas are pretty dark, and there's no gamma slider. The graphics are also turned down a few notches from the old PC version, there's no player shadow, for example.

        I'm pretty sure this is the only version to support things like cloud saves, widescreen(!), true gamepad support - things like that.

        I suppose every version has it's strengths and weaknesses, but I'm generally very happy with what the iOS version brings.

    Bought it when it launched because of all the great things I heard, played it for an hour and never touched it again because of the horrible controls. Now I'm just waiting for a decent mfi controller for iPad.

    • DuckyShot

      I think the controls are great. It was a bit awkward at first, but you get used to it. And the 'Mad Catz CTRLi' is releasing in June, so.....

    • Endscrypt

      Bought it on release, never. played it till then must admit the first hour or 2 was getting my controls, bearings,etc together but once I did! Well ya don't get much better than this on IOS thnx for a great port otherwise I don't think I would have ever played it! Different strokes for different folks I suppose, May the 4th be with you all.

    LEGO Star Wars complete saga IAP is on 50 % sale currently .
    There are also new Star Wars tables for Zen Pinball.
    Getting bombarded with SW games and loving it : )

    KOTOR 2 would be an overkill right now.

    • kjmathew

      I know. Need Kotor 2 on 5s.

  • VirtualBoyFreak

    This is the moment: get SW: KOTOR, XCom and FTL in your iPads for less than 30 bucks. You'll have everything ready for the summer holidays and surviving your family-in-law 😉

      But...but...but...WHERE AM I GOING TO FIND THE TIME?! So many games to play!

  • FuzzyPuffin

    KOTOR 1 (PC/Mac) and 2 (PC) are on sale on Steam as well, for $3.39 each.

  • DuckyShot

  • iRichie

    This is a great game...if you give it a chance the controls are not bad.

    FuzzyPuffin I could have done without that info...(must buy game on sale on steam)

  • anabolicMike

    I own it already. I keep forgetting about some of the awesome games on this thing. I keep buying more when I should really play the ones I've got. This is one I could take the time to beat. It's amazing. Buy it guys. It's even great on the iphone. I need to play it again. How do you fellers get yourselves to finish a whole game instead of bouncing around like a slinky on a hot plate on a meth high? I need focus in my life boys! Focus!

    • Endscrypt
