OP  8/26/13 2:55:16 AM#1

I played this game for like 10 minutes during beta long ago and the movement and lag was horrible, and a few other things annoyed me, so I stopped playing it and I never looked back.

Yesterday, I thought I'd give it another crack since it's been almost 2 years since release and I'm sure they've done a lot of work to it. I have also upgraded my computer and video card since then.

Well, I gotta say, I'm having a freaking blast! The game is great! Maybe it's nothing groundbreaking but I think it beats the crap out of all of the Asian MMOs out there.

The combat is awesome, the music, the sounds, the action, the graphics, the quests, all really great. Good American quality game. The PvP seems like it's good too, I made a character on the PvP server The Bastion.

I know I'm a newbie and maybe I'm in for an unpleasant surprise, so my questions are, why isn't this game no where on the front page of this website? It seems like it fell off the face of the Earth. Is the game not as good as I think it is? Does anyone here play it anymore?

We can only show them the path, but they have to be the ones to take it.

Its a silly cash grab, you'll see, best of luck in your "angry teen" adventure as a "sith" or as a mindless drone playing "jedi". Oh yeah, its not really star wars, its a space game with star wars written all over the website.

 

But hey, if you enjoy that and have deep pockets, why not? You should try world of warcraft if you're new to MMOs. Sure its "older" but it feels more recent than SWTOR.

Boycotting EA. Why? They suck, even moreso since 2008.

Yeah, I played WoW for over 5 years. It used to be great long ago. If by "feels more recent" you are referring to all of the new things I hate about WoW, maybe this is good news.

Hey Devs, just so you know. The more you give us to play with, the more we play.

8/26/13 3:34:49 AM#5

Enjoy it, its a decent game. Not a great game, but not a bad one either.

If youre a subscriber, which is only $15 a month you get everything in the game except some cosmetic items. Most of which I'll say are cool, but not needed.

 

Dont listen to the naysayers. They are going to try their best to convince you youre wrong and you shouldnt be enjoying yourself.

And most of the complaints about the item store are people who expect something, or all of it, for nothing.

It is fun...at first...but rapidly runs out of steam once the star wars gleam  wears out and you realise it's very shallow game with far too much money put into cutscene actor fees, Lucas IP fees and far too little money put into coming up with a new and innovative system worth your time. Add to that largely dead worlds and with an increasingly diminishing audience you'll have nothing but manikin NPCs to interact with once you leave the early worlds. Still, it's free so finding all this out won't cost you anything as long as you don't do anything silly like blowing money on the ludicrous cash shop. Lucky you.

I played it for a couple of months and enjoyed it. I left when they first announced the closure of the APAC servers, and I've never felt inclined to return. It's by no means a terrible game, but you won't find a lot of love for it on this site.

It's mediocre.

Not crap but not great either.

Just......mediocre.

Oh and it's a singleplayer game more than a MMO.

It was above average for sure, but really dragged down by terrible grouping and almost no enemy variety (in terms of how they fight; they look different, they just don't force different strategies upon you so combat gets repetitive fast.)

For me, the story was always the thing in SWTOR. I leveled EVERY class and enjoyed each individual storyline. However, once you are done with the story, the game is just so much "rinse and repeat" content for any MMO out there. I played raids with my guild for a long time. Tried PvP. Even tried to keep up with LAME daily missions they provided. But once they dropped into the so-called "f2p" model...it was time for me to leave. F2p brought too many annoying things such as constant "reminders" that you could get this or that item on the in-game store. Ruined my experience. I dropped my sub...tried to play "f2p". Lost too much in the transition so finally just left the game for good.

Again, story good. "End game" and f2p, not so much.

It was a blast at first. Very easy to quickly render it as one of the best during the first day. However, the story quickly got old. It started to feel like I was watching a cartoon movie as opposed to actually have a character with real choice.

I'm done with the games that completely guide me. Ugh. Boring,

If it suits your requirements of a fun game: perfect.

For me the experience led me to walk away from this game.

I like mass PVP, PVP in general, and exploration.

The game may have improved quite a bit, but I doubt I can explore what's behind 'that hill over there' and not run into a invisible wall, fly in space to wherever I want without playing a 5 min cutscene where all I can do is press the fire button and aim, or go from 50fps to 1fp5secs when more then 5 players are in the same place pvping.

untill they fix that, I keep hoping.

If he is having fun, all these things you said is irrelevant.

Personally i don't like TOR but fun is subjective. Obviously lots of players find it fun. Otherwise, it won't have so many active players.

I won't lie, I had a great time too the first run through. Maxed out a bounty hunter. I was killing enemies 2-3 levels higher like it was nothing too... maybe BH's were OP lol.... anyways, the problem is the game has an "end game". You have no open ended content to build your char up at all at the end. You are left to repeat the same dungeons and quests over and over and over again so that you can get new items that make it easier to do those same dungeons over and over again.

I wanted more! While I crave an open PvP sandbox game more than anything, I'm not against other types of MMO's, and this is one that I found quite entertaining. I heard there has been quite a bit of content added so I actually thought of re-downloading this past weekend.... maybe I actually will now lol

That is the spirit. Many games have decent content. It does not get boring until you have to repeat (and few is fun even with some repeats).

You can always play the content, leave and only come back when there is more.

Disclaimer: i don't like TOR because of its combat & content, but i can totally see how some others enjoy it a great deal .. very much showing the differences in gaming preferences of individuals.

Almost as much as Dark and Light, but not quite...not quite at all.

What crash and burn? It was revived by f2p. It has as many subs as Eve, a lot more active players, and make more money.
