Mac gamers can finally play Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II

Over 10 years after it was first released in 2004 on Windows and the original Xbox, Aspyr Media has now released the Mac version of the classic role-playing game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords. It has also launch a Linux-based version of the game.

Both Knights of the Old Republic games are set thousands of years before the events of the Star Wars movies. Knights of the Old Republic II, originally developed by Obsidian Entertainment, has the player fighting as a Jedi to stop the Sith Lords from destroying the Old Republic. Aspyr Games says:

While Knights of the Old Republic II (aka KOTOR 2) has been available on Windows PC for some time, Aspyr's release of the game on Mac and Linux will bring some great updates to an already awesome game. For one, the resolution has been improved to support native resolutions and widescreen play (vs the old school 4:3 ratio). Aspyr has also added controller support and achievements to the game.

You can get the game for $6.99 in the Mac App Store or for $7.49 via Game Agent and Steam.
