Well so called haters said full VO is nonsense even before release ...

BTW why all say that game is fully VO, does your mission terminals speak to you ? Well mine just display 'wall of text' ...

Repeatables should totally be walls of text.

And they should really have a way of skipping standing around for VOs in flashpoints. It so sucks to opt out (press space) and sit there with nothing happening for a minute or more.

I think there should be a balance in VO and 'wall of text'

O honestly dont see much point giving voice overs to side missions that makes no relevance to the main story progression, eg: dailies and random 'go there and collect some research for me' missions


SWTOR couldve saved some money and worked on core mechanics, like combat. Instead of the same old 5 hotkey bar rotation combat.

How much WoW could a WoWhater hate, if a WoWhater could hate WoW?

The Sith Warrior, however was pretty decent.

I have a similar reaction (same with the Jedi Consular).


Bounty Hunter is my favorite. I don't see why Jedi has to be so...I don't know...It just sounds like a "corporate" take on "good guys."  I mean the Jedi voice acting sounds like a guy that works in a cubicle or something.

Actually this is a good article.  VO is over done and at cap I dont want to see these cut scenes over and over all the time, I would like an option to turn Voice Acting off completely and let me just pick dark side or good.

I am just so pleased I have a mechanical keyboard otherwise my spacebar could be broken by now.

However I do enjoy the class quests and companion interactions thats about it really the rest is overkill. I would also like the option to choose my voice when I create my character I WANT A BRITISH JEDI DAMN IT

Yes.  This seemed really apparent from about level 2 or 3 on also.

The other piece that bothered me was the canned player pieces.  I admit, I only played a short time in beta, but it seemed like a lot of the NPCs would basically ignore the player comment like you weren't there or it could be any schmo talking to the npc.

If you don't worry about it, it's not a problem.

EQ2 CSR:the Bug you reported is a new game feature, and will be removed in the next patch.

I hated that space combat it’s useless, as are the ships in general; the game economy and crafting is poorly executed. You can not have vendors selling and giving away items that are as good, as what crafters make using uncommon or  rare items, Blue quality items. Lack of content, really how many times did you run off the map, and die from “exhaustion”   The Graphics or style was cartoonist and dated totally WOW, but without that computer power savings, that game is an resource hog.

Months before release i got called a troll and worse because i said VO in this game would get annoying. Bioware's trademark is cheesy VO. And they PRETEND that all of your choices matter. They do not matter. So when kids grow up and realize this maybe we wont have to hear all of the bioware crap about how great the company is.  All games need a good story but when thats all you can offer in a game, and people praise them so highly, its no wonder mmo's suck so bad.

So, voice acting is what makes a good mmo?  Right....

The voice acting was neat when I first got the game but by the end of the first week I found myself spacebarring through everything except my class quests. Didn't help that every other NPC sounded the same and I kept hearing my charactar repeat the same lines all the time. That and your 'choices' are meaningless in the game. No matter what you do you will get the same outcome and you'll never hear anything from that NPC you saved again or hear anyone comment about how maybe you killed the NPC. It also amused me how you can sound like a total dick if you choose one option and in the next option you sound like you're gonna hug the person. Almost felt like my charactar was bipolar sometimes.

I suspect this article has been sponsored by BioWare. The concept is that SWTOR's strength (voice acting) is presented as a weakness.

Personally, I'm bored with PvE. I'm only buying PvP-centered MMORPGs from now on.

Honestly, the VO has been fun to me up to level 35, from which point it became an annoying experience and after level 40 I decided to just skip dialogues. It was refreshing indeed, it made me go way further than I would if the game featured traditional quest text.

its dissapointing  even the writers on this site who adore the game  even now complaint about the main aspect of it, sometimes  the quests  stop being awesone and whatnot but its normal as normal as  click  5 buttons over and over its, its a video game   it  will be repetitive, more important its a MMO it  will be 10th times more repetitive than a comsole game, so my point?...complaint about  these things its useless  sometimes u will  get bored and drool all over the next  quest dialog 3 days should  just let it pass and continue  you journey, thats and advice and take it  for what it is

For me, Star Wars: The Old Republic has exceeded expectations. Any doubters out there can say what they want but it has for this gamer. It’s had a very smooth launch; it plays well and has enough to do in it to keep me interested. If I get bored with leveling I go play PvP. If I get bored with PvP I go play space missions, and I’m always bossing around my companions for crafting. Overall it’s a good solid game. There is one area however that I feel like Bioware has gone too far, Voice Acting. There are elements of voice acting that I do love in the game and having VO in your main class story line is fantastic. However I do think Bioware should have been more strategic in their placement and not used it in every quest.

If you don't like the voice, just hit the space bar or something.  I mean, really.  It's not that hard.

Oh, no, they promised me champagne mimosas with brunch and look what I got, champagne mimosas!  But I wanted WATER!!!

Perfect article! :-) Though IMHO the game plays good only untill you hit 50 cause after that it is a stub.  Actually I would love to see an MMO without side quests at all (well without this type of side quests where you have to go kill 20 of those). I am fine with like 30 quests instead of 100 but all of them being meaningful in some way and having some deep story + some choices (the 3 alternatives in swtor aren't really alternatives at all - just some player reactions to what comes next). While less number of quests might shorten the game and leveling it would keep players really engaged rather than rushing to the end ('I have to kill 20 of those and destroy turrets.. oh no - not again") and would make players really want to go through histories for several classes. In swtor I don't feel like rolling another character to the level 50, I don't feel like winning the war for Corelia all by myself once again (really - every turret and every soldier on Corelia had to be killed by the player being a sith lord by the time - what's the hell? Sith lords don't fight at the frontlines). Actually the main story line takes only about 15-20% of time or less, the rest is absolutely the same for all classes and completely linear -only one planet for each level range - no choice at all. Also most of the side quests were completly irrelevant for the sith lord  - "uhm ok - you are the sith lord and our superior, but we have no men so you will have to go kill all the rep scums by yourself, as we failed to come with something force/sith relevant and the only thing to do out there is combat". Vader would have killed half of the side quest NPCs just for talking to him like that ))) While leveling is easier and more entertaining vs. WoW - it is not the best leveling experience I had - the best one being in DCUO as I ENJOYED leveling 2 character back at it.

I'm very happy with voice acting just as it is. Never boring, incredibly well done, all with "soul" of voice actors, .... only I admit that with 8 alts I'm playing I may be pressing space after have read quest test even if voice acting is not yet over.

In general i think will have very hard time to return back to wow and rift that do not have it. Here I feel like being in movie that is influenced by my decisions. Feeling in incredible.

For me swtor is best thing happened to (at least) mmo industry. And best fluid release (althrough rift for sure was also a blast and i will return there also for sure).

So far for me there are only 3 games in the world worth paying sub: wow, rift and now swtor.

You are completely ignoring the fact in swtor mobs are usually in groups of 3 to 4, so is at all not same as killing 20 mobs in other games (except CO that have similar mechanics). Here is more like killing 5 mobs in other mmos (where on the other hand one have to kill at least 10 of them, meaning effectively double then in swtor).
