That's an insult to KotOR you know.

In KotOR the story went deep, real deep and it struck you to find out you were actually Revan.

In KotOR the companions were cool, every single one of them.

In KotOR you had awesome music, also every single one of them. Think about the soundtracks when you create your character, when the Endar Spire gets attack, when you have the Malak moments, when you're on planets like Dantooine, Manaan, etc. etc. etc.

Now TOR:

Only played trough the Jedi Knight story, but I can tell you that:

Story wasn't all that thrilling. In Act 1 and Act 2 you meet some wannabe bad guys but everytime their names get mentioned you have trouble remembering who exactly they were again. I didn't have this problem with Calo Nord, Admiral Karath, Darth Bandon, Darth Malak, etc. in KotOR. Act 3 is when something major happens, but because everything is pretty rushed the build-up is too fast and thus the story doesn't really strike you.

Companions in TOR are BORING. I HATE every single one of them, except my own Padawan maybe. But even she is dull. In KotOR Canderous would tell you for hours about the wars he had faced, here you're left with 1 minute conversations that are usually about nothing at all. You just reply all the time with "okay..." "sure...", end of conversation.

In TOR are three different kind of soundtracks: Ripped from KotOR, Ripped from the movies and some custom made for TOR. The sad part is that the best music are the ones that got ripped from KotOR, even if you've already heard them a billion times. There are some nice custom made ones for TOR but it doesn't come close to the amount of good soundtracks that they produced for KotOR.

TOR is TOR. It is not KotOR 3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 just because all 8 classes have their own storyline. If you would level up to 50, THEN do all your storyline quests, you will find out that it's only good for a few hours whereas KotOR always took 20 or 30+ hours even if you already knew exactly where to go.

I assure you in leading up to this game. I have reviewed almost every information and article and I clearly remember fans asking the same question. Will there ever be a KOTR3 they clearly said that Star Wars has enough content for KOTR 3-4-5-6-10. If you are upset then be mad at them. They clearly have invested most of their star wars time into this game for over 10 year's they had a team of 10 writer's working on this game.

You can hear voices in the original KOR in this game. (Jedi Knight Storyline) I don't know what to say. We are not bioware, that was their information. I highly doubt given they taken down star wars galaxy, that they are going to make a 3rd game just for solo RPG. I think they have their hands full with dragon age and other games like that.

I already know there won't be a KotOR III.

I'm just saying that it's an insult to KotOR to say that TOR is KotOR 3 - 10, because it's not. It doesn't come close to how epic KotOR was and it will never come as close. I don't care who says this is KotOR 3 - 10, whether it's Bioware, Lucasarts, EA or the players. It's not and will never be.

All fans of KOTOR will rejoice The game has been confirmed for a third chapter in the series. The game is being produced by Bioware and being published by EA and were kind enough to spread a little info to a select few of employees at the E3 event. No news on a console release but its sure to be a amazing RPG. Bioware is currently hiring people in certain fields to help in aid of the games production. John Riccitiello has stated Co-op is one of the games main focuses and this could mean a online feature. The game has no specific release date but its certain to be released sometime around next spring or summer.

"For a while we've heard both official and unofficial talk about two Bioware projects: a partnership with Lucasarts for a game, and an MMO for which the developer opened a satellite studio in Austn, Texas in 2006. Recently, Bioware parent company Electronic Arts revealed that they are the same same, a Knights of the Old Republic MMO.

EA CEO John Riccitiello revealed the game in speaking to CONDE Nast's Portfolio.com. Riccetiello said that EA has "two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development. The first titled, based on the Warhammer property, will launch soon. And the one people are dying for us to talk to them about in partnership with lucasARts coming out of bioware , which is, I think, quite possibly the most anticipaited game, full stop, for the industry at the point when we get closer to telling you about it." When asked if he was refferring to a KOTOR MMO. Riccitello replied, "Yes."

I know all the villains in KOTOR were really well established especially Darth Brandon. I mean never in the game was I like wait who is this and why is he suddenly a threat? O he killed that guy at the start of the game when you see him for 3 seconds well he must be powerful if he can kill a grunts.
Same with companions I mean Zaalbar right? He had soo many dialouge options dialogue options it was crazy I spent hours talking to that guy.

I would prefer a KOTOR 3 instead of TOR, but it just didn't happen. Kinda sucks.

I say BioWare should drop the entire dragon age franchise now while there is still a chance and go back to KOTOR! Though it would make some people mad I bet it would make tons way happier. It makes sence...SWTOR was supposed to be about 400 years after KOTOR 1 right? And KOTOR 2 was about 10(considering carth was still alive). So that leaves about 390 years in between that could be filled with KOTOR 3..and if BioWare wanted, they could add an expansion to SWTOR that included the events of KOTOR 3 somehow! Wouldn't that be awesome?
