I have been thinking about playing TSW  (actually downloading it  right now) because I'm tired swtor  and want to try something new.  Which game do you think is better and why?

Played both. I personally prefer SWTOR. Could not make myself to log to TSW after 2 weeks. Not sure why, as it's story oriented and I love it, but something just did not click. It has beautiful graphic though and some quests are very interesting. I might re-visit it one day.

well....SWTOR works without CS getting involved every step. TSW has a more relevant storyline to me. otherwise as a game and product quality, SWTOR blows TSW away.

Because of how classes work, being able to go back and redo content and the more open zones I think TSW is a bit more off rails than SWTOR.  As much off rails as a Quest based game can be.  SWTOR is very much a on rails level 1 to cap adventure.  It's not a bad ride but it's something to consider.

Both games stories are really good.

Of the two, I prefer playing TSW. I think it's just an overall better game.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

TSW hands down. Swtor while it has a nice VO story the rest of its quests are fetch and kill. While TSW has those it has a LOT more variety (investigation and stealth). TSW has a open skill system which lets you make the char you want unlike swtor which has rigid classes. TSW has a more interesting setting (if you like occult lovecraft esque stuff).

Just my opinion.

Different games really..  Both story oriented, but they just 'feel' different. 

TSW is amazing while you're leveling, the stories, the zones, etc are all top notch!  But once you hit the end, it all kind of falls on it's face.   And with 0 incentive to roll alts, you find your attention starting to drift towards other games.

SWTOR, individual class stories are great, even planetary storylines are great the first time you do them.  It does have a more focused and easier end-game than TSW with more meta-game options in the terms of alts, opposite faction stories, legacy, etc...


But to put things in perspective for you.... I own and run the largest TSW guides site on the internet, and I'm currently playing SWTOR...   :)


But since you're tired of SWTOR, you can't go wrong with giving TSW a try and getting through the bulk of the content! 

Hey TSW Players for Mission guides, Lore Locations and stuff....

I'm going with SWTOR simply because TSW has the worst character creation of any game I've played, and that includes RO.

First I found if you want to know something like this you should make a poll. "Which is better game A or B?"

I would vote for The Secret World for something totally different than the basic WoW clone, and that is what SW:TOR is. I'm not saying TSW doesn't have any of its attributes, but it has a very unique atmosphere and skill system.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

I think if you are in it for the voiceovers and stuff you'll be happy. It's good, but there's still many single player games that do it better.

TSW has this sort of.. new and different feeling to it compared to most other MMOs.

It really isn't 'that' different but it 'feels' different because it's a theme you haven't had before.

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

Out of the two I preferred TSW, it was edgier, darker and fresh. SWTOR just didn't do it for me, it was the same old thing with a different skin - although the production value was top notch. I preferred questing in TSW, it had some variety although some of the puzzle quests were ridiculously hard. After the first day of questing in SWTOR I got bored of being the games gopher. Although I got to say, I play neither of them now, none of them, in my opinion will have long term appeal for most casual players.

The two games are very different, although there's a superficial similarity in that cut-scenes are used much more heavily than in other MMOs.  

SWTOR has a pretty linear storyline, but has many things about it which are almost a full lift from WoW-style play.  The dodge ability is nice, but the abilities and skills feel very close to WoW, with an update to the Star Wars (prequel) universe.  I did like the storylines in that game, but it did feel very much "on rails," but my real problem with it was that it just felt too much like the prequels, which I despise.  The game (and more recent movies) simply don't feel lived in.  Some very nice plot twists though, and I did like the ability to choose actions Bioware-style in certain places.  That said, SWTOR almost overdid the cut scenes -- I think just about every quest has one.

TSW also uses cutscenes, but only for the main storyline and main missions -- the side missions are text only.  That said, the characters in TSW cutscenes are very solid and memorable, and many players have their favorite NPCs (mine's Nassir).  TSW draws much more heavily on Lovecraft, the X-Files and a bit of Indiana Jones for the backdrop, and has a more modern day conspiracy horror feel to it.  The ability wheel and skill system is VERY different from just about every MMO (I hear similar to GW1), with the ability to equip any weapon and play any role in the trinity (TSW is a theorycrafter's paradise.)  The big difference is that TSW asks you the player to do a bit more work in figuring out the missions and puzzles, and although there are walkthrus, it feel very good to solve some of the missions on your own.  That last point, to me, is the biggest reason I prefer TSW to many other MMOs -- it asks me to think.

TSW hands down the better of the two. 


Having played both, i prefer TSW due to a couple of things that i like. these are action combat (you can move and do abilities), the story, the variety of classes and the fact that you can change to be something else entirely along the way. You arent locked into being a tank, dps, heals. graphically to me (IMO) is better. 


a couple of things that lets TSW down though are character customizing. While you dont all look the same due to clothing etc, the facial features could do with some more variety. But to me thats still better than the option you get in TOR.

Lol you were thinking swtor is better? Swtor has to be one of the worst mmorpgs, it's not even in the same league as TSW.

I prefer the dialog and cutscenes in TSW. The NPCs are almost all very well done. Some are absolute classics, like Nassir and Said in Egypt, the Orochi agents on Solomon Island, Deputy Andy in Kingsmouth and Hayden Montag at the Innsmouth Academy.

The ambiance is much better too.

As others have said, it lacks re-playability.
