wizter writes: As a F2P player I found SWToR still enjoyable enough to play. From the other side, I do dislike that there is no automation to party matching for heroics and ppl have to resort in begging in General for help. Also the current cash limit of 200K is less than the 350K required to buy the license to use purple/artifact gear, which puts you at great disadvantage at higher levels. All other little nags/dislikes here and there I can live with as a F2P player it would be unreasonable to expect more. All in all a solid MMO especially if you are looking to take a break from or are in between/waiting for something else to come along. Mon Mar 03 2014 5:36AM

Diodem writes: Gave this game mostly 9, and value 10. Partly because I think it's a decent game and there's lots to do, and people at launch seems to have hate-rated it down. Even though themepark isn't my prefered type of mmo, I'm able to enjoy this one. with the Starfighter PvP battles it became more fun for pvp'ers. Graphics are good, sound failry good, roleplaying i haven't seen much of, but with the cutscenes it makes a good mood for it. I gave value 10 because I feel there's alot to do, although it's limited like all themeparks. but it still has a tiny bit of Anarchy Online customizing with the equipment mods for gear. The game is fairly fun, though it has the tendency of WoW with the quests sometimes, I rated it up to balance from earlier ratings. Community is like alot of other mmo's, there's well behaved players and not so well behaved, but to choose an mmo for it's community leaves you with just a handful to choose from. I've experienced a few lagspikes, but just a tiny bit, mostly the server communication is fine. the few times I have used customer service I haven't had any problems with getting a response in comparison with other games, perhaps a little longer response time, but not alot Imo. With the fre to play account you can play to level fifty and customize gear, but you can't get artifact gear. Subscribers get alot of advantages, but it's fully possible to play without paying anything. I find it a solid and stabile mmo with lots of players, if you want an alternative to WoW, then this is at least better than WoW-clones out there. Not really a sandbox, but I'm enjoying it still.

Limit writes: If you like the single player games of this franchise, you will love this game. You have 8 class stories to go through which will keep you busy for some time. As a single player game 10/10. Eng game however gets old fast, thats when I stopped and just made characters to max out and play the stories, on my fifth character at the moment. I would think of this as a single player game with some multiplayer elements. If I was reviewing this from a MMORPG POV I would probably say 5/10. Sat Dec 14 2013 7:00PM
DarthMaulUK writes: Biowares run of bad design decisions continue with the arrival of Arenas. If you don't like them, its tough as they are placed in the same rotation and normal 8v8s. Like everything else in SWTOR, its a random mess, so hours can be wasted bailing out before the Arena starts - lots of people do, meaning that you will find lots of unbalanced matches. Speaking of balance, there just isn't any if you PvP. Biowares love for killing players quickly ensure that the dozens of stuns, the stunlock, the tons of dots mean that trying to survive in group combat is a trick, not an art. Overall, if you like to be spoon fed your content, enjoy games with little ambition, no x-server support, endless hours spent waiting for a group/warzone - you'll probably love this game. There's a reason why it went freemium and over 1 million people left the game inside 4 months. Avoid if you can Fri Dec 06 2013 1:12PM

Talmagdon writes: The one amazing thing about this game is that everything has voice acting. Environment NPCs in the cantina (bar) voice out their conversations. Everything about the environment in this game lends itself to immersion. Each faction has 4 classes (each of which get 2 advanced classes) that represent character archetypes that contribute to their faction in very different ways. Often, you have stories that overlap in interesting ways, thus enticing you to try out all 8 archetypes. Unfortunately, while the class storylines are fantastic, repeating the same general quests per faction takes its toll and is a contributing factor to player burnout. The f2p system lends itself well to getting more players in game and allows past players to take a look at the changes in the game and decide if they want to come back, but the restrictions on f2p and preferred status (f2p accounts that have made purchases/subscriptions of at least $5) players feels very restrictive. Most f2p players who are serious about the game have to make a choice between going subscriber or grinding in-game currency in order to afford weekly/permanent unlocks from the GTN (player vending). Community can also vary based on faction and server. Class balance in this game has been broken since launch and makes PvP particularly frustrating. That said, there is still an active and engaging PvP community. The nail in the coffin is customer service. You can only create tickets if you are a current subscriber. Even as a subscriber, there are often delays in getting a response and sometimes no response at all, just a notification that your ticket is closed. Despite these flaws, SWTOR is still an enjoyable game and worth a look into, if only to get one toon done on each faction. It contributes a lot in terms of story and so long as you have a good guild or group of friends, can provide a lot of entertainment. Bear in mind, also, that it is a fairly young game and still has the potential to become something amazing. Tue Oct 15 2013 5:35AM

If you have a problem and don't subscribe - "We don't want to know" - even if answering a problem wouild gain a subscriber... very odd attitude to adopt. Wed Oct 02 2013 5:24AM
