OP  1/30/13 11:38:19 AM#1

Just noticed the user review rating went down over night from 7.2 to 6.6 and I feel that's a bit harsh. Considering the game is picking up and there are some great updates / expansion coming up. What do you guys think ? People really do have it in for this game it seems.

Cheers ,

Think somethings up with all the ratings.

All the games have lost about .8 overnight.

NGE, LOTRO, STO, KOTOR, Lego Star Wars > NGE 2 (SWTOR). SWG>ALL. Above hopefully subject to change.

6.6 is good, as here is a re-review that scores it 4!

The problem is that the updates/expansion is coming and not in game already and the expansion / Makeb was going to be a major free update and expected to be in game before the end of 2012. The game is not picking up, it is slowing down.

Makeb was announced in June 2012 maybe before, with ETA to be in game before end of 2012, but now not due until Spring/June 2013, almost 1 year later, and 6 months after it being classed as an expansion.

EQ2 latest expansion was announced Oct 2012 at SOE live, and in Nov 2012, about 1 month later - Thats the way to do it!

I bet if the game was doing well, Makeb would have been in by the end of 2012, and more content done for an expansion in the Spring, but all they seem to be doing is spreading out content that they have already done, instead of getting on creating more new content.

I think up until this month I was still paying a sub hoping they would fix the problems. No more money from me, and they deserve a lower rating adding content no one cares about when they cant even get the game to function right as is.

That's just my opinion as someone who has played a lot of it this past year.

This. I mean really, who cares? If anything, I'd take a low score from this site as a badge of honor.

5.5 is about right. 6.6 a bit high for that game.

No 6 is what reviewers should have given it in the first place. Frankly its the worst mmo I've played, my personal score would be 2 or 3 out of ten.

I give the game a 5.  It was enough to keep me entertained for a bit.  Unfortunately, Bioware/EA (and all the other companies) don't realize this isn't the old days.  People aren't as willing to wait forever for them to fix shit. 

I would also imagine the F2P restrictions would cause a drop in rating.  I know I would rate it much lower with all those restrictions.  I don't think EA has any idea what to do with MMOs.  After playing WAR and SWTOR I won't buy another MMO from EA.  All they like to do is rush games that have great concepts, then watch it fail.  If they had been patient with both games, I'm almost positive they would have been great.

The scoring on this site is a little wonky.

ToR is perhaps a little under-rated. People as always concentrate too much on the negative sides and not enough on the positive sides, but to me this game is definitely far better than the average MMORPG out there. I would rate this game overall as a 7.0

As to GW2, I find it is over-rated. It is definitely not a bad game, but its score of over 8 means it is really one of the best, if not the best MMORPGs ever released, and there I strongly have to disagree. I do not in any way, shape or form believe that GW2 is better than EQ1, EQ2, DAoC, or EVE, and yet this site rates it as being far better than any of those games.

To me, only the pioneering classics should have 8's, like the EQ series, EVE, and DAoC. AO perhaps should have a 7.5 because it was a buggy mess, but it definitely was first for a lot of things.

This site also rates down games that break the mould such as ATitD or Ryzome.

Meh. I don't think many people put much stock in the arbitraty number of a review rating.

To be honest, if someone was looking for a magic review number, they'ld probablly add the critical review and the user review together and divide by 2; for this game that would yield a 7.65, which is pretty decent.

It's only going to keep going down, IMO.

 

I want SWTOR to succeed, but bad decision after bad decision by EA is tanking this game.  Lack of content is BAD.  F2P restrictions are comical at best.  The Cartel Market is P2W, and the only way to be a mount or pet collector is to buy from others who spend money, or spend money yourself.  Which creates a really shitty economy for those who play without buying from the cash shop.

 

I would think that the emphasis would be on player satisfaction so the graphics engine would get improvement.  But no.  This game still can't handle multiplayer environments above 16 or so players on a common computer.  40 if you have a $5000 machine, but that is still a long ways off from WoW, who did Alterac Valley 40 vs 40 in 2000 without dropping framerates.

 

Customer service is also abyssmal.  If I could rate it a zero, I would.  Bot responses to clear the ticket without actually solving the problem are very uncool.

 

Stories, music, sound effects, and art work are really good.  The rest, meh.  A 6 rating is giving this game enough already, because buying the soundtrack is a lot cheaper than buying the game.  As an MMO, a poor graphics engine and slow loads between zones (if they must have them) turn me off ... this game has sloppy written all over it.  EA style.

 

I can even live with cartoony graphics.. HOWEVER, I can't live with 10-20 fps in a common hub, or < 1 fps in world PVP.

 

The rating was being generous.

 

ps - sadly it was the folks who did all the awesome sounds, music, and art who got fired last year.  The shitty game designers still have their jobs.

6.6 is a more 'average' score which I can see the game getting with the story (least some of it) boosting it up to that.

 

That being said though, there are other games that are way over-rated such as GW2 which has a score much higher then it really deserves as well. Scores are just silly to use as a basis, they are almost never right either over bloated or overly harsh in cases.

I anticipate GW2's score to dwindle as well.  If anything rating (reviews) are just hype for the moment, like SWTOR.

It's because Path of Exile just launched and showed up in the ratings with a very high rating.  A game's displayed rating depends both on the numerical average of people who have rated the game and also on the rating of the top game.  As Path of Exile's rating comes back down, the rest of the ratings will go back up, at least until it drops back behind Guild Wars 2.

i think 6.6 is still too high personally not only is this one of the largest failures as an mmorpg to date , but it would even be considered a terrible single player rpg as well with games like fallout new vegas and skyrim on the single player market. This game is linear and static with low quality graphics and very boring and bland classes not sure why anyone would even want to play this game at end game with every class being cookie cutter specs and the same boring gear treadmill and slow updates. At least SWG had open world freedom to it though it was not that great either.

Spot on. I was one of the first Snipers to hit 50 on my server so I got a lot of invited to pug raids and we couldnt even clear due to the sheer amount of bugs. If i remember correctly one raid had a boss named "RAID MONSTER 001" or somethign like that. EAs fatal mistake was them hiring A LOT of inexperienced devs to work on swtor instead of hiring a small amount of GOOD devs. Doesnt help that they used an inomplete hero engine...

this was one of the most overrated games on this, and other mmo sites for wayyy to long, finally its scores are going into the right direction,,,

 

btw, review ratings on this site are jokes, site rating 8.7, user rating 6.6,,, i can bet a portion of the "biggest budget in mmo history" went into mmorpg's reviewers/owners pockets

 

only ratings that are at least somewhat realistic are those for indie titles, pretty much every new AAA title is over rated on this site

shame mmorpg.com, shame on you
