Update: Suprise! The game has officially hit the App Store! We'll have a full review for you soon. Until then, you can check it out yourself. In a surprise move, IGN has posted an exclusive review of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KotOR) for iPad, ahead of the app's official announcement! As such, it would appear that the whisper we heard earlier this month concerning the pending release of a KotOR iPad port was indeed accurate, and that such a game is soon to launch in the App Store. The website concludes in its review:
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic still holds up, and remains a must-play for younger players who didn’t catch it the first time around. Though the iPad version's touch controls make movement clumsy, most of its changes are for the better. If you haven’t played it before, or want to experience it again, this is a great way to do it.It seems that the iPad port is set to be released at some point this week, though unsurprisingly, no date has yet been revealed. After all, as of this writing, Star Wars: KotOR for iPad hasn't even received an official announcement from Aspyr Media, the app's publisher. Perhaps that will soon change, however, considering the aforementioned mishap. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, for more information on the forthcoming Star Wars port, take a look at IGN's in-depth review.
