I didn't even finish my first month before I stopped playing when I pre-ordered the game. I was so excited about it, but it is probably the worst one I have played.

Judging by what I've read, I'd be inclined to say it only managed to score a 6.6 because the review system forces you to rate categories like graphics, sounds, etc. and doesn't let you give an overall score.

How not to sell me on a game: "And most people that make it past the tutorial seem to appreciate [x game's] uniqueness, even if they don't find it fun."

That is the overall score, though.

 

It discourages people from rating a game a cruddy 1, or an awesome 10.  The submitter has to think about the categories.  A really good game might still have a rating of only 8-9, user submitted, because it fell short in some other area.

 

It makes a perfect 10 hard to come by, which is actually good when reviewing.  Also it makes a big zero also more difficult to rate.  Of course some people may abuse this system, but they are just lying to themselves (if they are abusing).

 

Like with SWTOR, I couldn't give it a "1" .. because it did have things going for it, like it's amazing soundtrack and stories.

i would seriously like to see the fans of this game come on here and actually compare this game to every other mmorpg out there and rate it accordingly based on how much this game offers vs every other mmo on the market. This game doesnt even offer half the stuff other triple A mmos do and certain people here idolize it. The worst thing of all is this is EA cashing in on the star wars IP because some people would rather just play a crappy star wars game than let it die off and someone make a actual good one.

The pvp is horrible with just a few warfronts you have to randomly queue for and not even allowed to pick them.

There is no end game but raiding and pvp.

All the classes are cookie cutter and limited.

The story is just recycled voice sets over and over again with half the story poorly even written to begin with.

No wardrobe system but augment sets

Terrible graphics and subpar coding on the engine

No personal housing at all or major social hubs

The engine cannot even handle more than 10 people on the screen at once everything is heavily instanced

I hate to sound negative on this game all the time but honestly its just a poorly made game made by a parent company that doesnt give two craps about improving it at all just making money.

But if a game is indeed pure crap, great graphics don't mean anything and obscure what you really think of the game. I get that fanbois will give it 10's and h8ters will give it 1's, but so what? If someone thinks a game is a true 7, they are just going to click all 7's. Why go through the charade? Why impose the idea that all the categories are of equal weight?

6.6 seems a  bit high to me.

SWtOR does nothing better than average with the exception of the voice acting.

If we assume 5 is an average score out of 10, add a point for the voice acting and you get a 6.

This game should be happy with 6.6.

Yeah, like user ratings on MMORPG matter...

Because they are unbiased and objective...

F2P is a joke.

Content is a joke.

Competition has shown to deliver WAY better post launch than SWTOR.

The rating is actually a bit high.  SWTOR deserves about 6.0

Harsh? Absolutely not. The game was forced into F2P in less then a year because people got bored with the PvE and extremely limited PvP content. The PvP is still broken even after being out for over a year and the planet content grows dull after you run it once.  Maybe if the devs actually listen to the players and make the game more F2P which they said it is more people will come back to the game and bring new people with it.

It's all free will, definitely.  But someone who really evaluates the game will give it higher in some areas and lower in others.  If you go in with what you think a game is worth (and give it 7's in every category), then you are not really evaluating the game.

 

Look at each category and give it an honest score, and see how the results turn out.  Chances are it will average to what you though it would anyways.  Sometimes it will surprise you, and you will find that even a game you hated isn't actually that bad (vise versa too).

Considering the worst free to play transition ever in gaming history this game could easily become a 2 out of 10.

Look at tera's,lols, path of exile and marvel heroes free to play model and you will realise what means to be a free to play.

Before free to play swtor republic was a 5/10 for me.After free to play transition the game is 2/10.

Cheers ,

nope it;s a pretty terrible game, the amount of hype i had for it and then finishing all content within the free month and not resubbing because the pvp system was pretty horrible (ilum and terrible instanced arena system)

 

also switching to "free to paly".... which i have to pay to access hotbars. are you for real

6.6 is a score that says to me, " Mediocre and under developed in many areas".  So for Swtor? 

 

That's just about perfect.  It's not bad or horrible, but its certainly not good or great either.

yeah, ratings aren't really correct on this site.  People will hype up a game, even if they never played it, or have quit playing it.  Noone ever updates thier reviews unless it's negative (like this game).  WoW has a bad score on here, and it has more people playing it than all the other games on this site combined hehe.

6.6 is pretty generous to be honest. This game is garbage.

anyone saying this game deserves a 2/10 or is the worst mmo they have ever played have absolutely no credibility as far as i am concerned.
