I am excited about this game, but that was entirely underwhelming... =-/

Well, the voice over was pretty powerful.  But it almost was like watching a video someone added sound to that didn't relaly match up.  Like Naral, I've been watching this game but that was lack luster.

Way to cut the edge off a powerful militaristic symbol by throwing in a female character and voice over.

The art direction in this game is absolutely atrociuous.  Lacks the true star wars fantasy feel entirely.  Graphics are just plane horrible everytime I see something on this game I just can't take it seriously.  First time I saw screenshots I laughed.  It was so disappointing.

@ Phenix - most say the same thing about WoW, yet millions seem to 'deal' with Blizz's art style there just fine.  Actually, WoW's success helped other game creators believe that 'stylized' art is 'the way to go', as opposed to attempts to make the game as 'realistic' as possible.

I still can't get this bloody video to play... too much 'lag' and tearing.  I'll keep plugging away at it.

@Blackwatch I agree about WoWs art style fueling other developers to attempt the "stylized" art. However Blizzard successfully translated the art style from thier RTS games over to the MMO which gave the world a nice continuity. I don't get the same correlation from these videos to what I would consider the "Star Wars" look and feel.

@Blackwatch Although the cartoon and somehow funny looking characters may work in the fantasy world of wow it doesn't really work in the sci fi world of SW. Plus there are different ways to make it stylized. This one kinda sucks.

Everyone is a critic.

I watched the video and said: I definitely want to play the trooper!

Big guns, and the grenade move is just cool.

 

Plus I don't have a state of the art computer, this level of graphics will do just fine, to ensure that I have decent fps in pvp.

@Blackwatch I agree with what you said about WoW but Lyulfe said it perfectly.  The style WoW uses has been around for over a decade, almost two.  They were succesful in bringing that over to WoW and I expected nothing less when WoW was first announced.  That is their style and they stayed true to their roots.  This however is a mockery of the SW franchise.  It looks like they saw my 5 year old cousin drawing SW with crayons and made it the basis for the entire design of the game.  The sad part is that this video is the BEST looking thing I've seen LOL.  I have no idea what Star Wars Bioware has been watching but I won't even touch this game because of how badly it lacks that SW feel and immersion is a huge factor for me in any MMO.

I see nothing wrong with the style or graphic, its far from topnotch but every other mmo i have playd had worse graphic then this.

Only exception is AoC but while the graphic was good i didt like it any more then wow with its cartoonish look.

I think the quality of the graphics from a texture/lighting/shadows standpoint are actually quite nice. It's just the art direction and aesthetic look of the game doesn't evoke the Star Wars universe to me.

Actually, the first two Warcraft games did not have the same graphics. This was changed with Warcraft III thus altering the visual premise of the franchise. While no other bioware game shares the art direction they chose for this game, they are in fact keeping true to their system because, in point of fact, every bioware game as completely different art styles...

Just because "your" version of starwars differs than this one, doesn't make it any less BA. The Starwars franchise is vast, tackled by so many different artists... and yes some are cartoons while others are just painted/drawn book covers...

hmm  the graphics kinda look like a slightly better version of KOTOR I and KOTOR II.   I mean the environment is a bit more polished and better lighting but everything else feels kinda the same...IDK maybe it's because I just got finished playing KOTOR II right before I watched this.  Either way, I'm not all about graphics, a game is supposed to be fun and as long as the content and gameplay are good, then I think I'll enjoy playing the game.

This comment is aimed at the people complaining about this games graphics.

high graphics = less subscribers - Fact!

The average graphics card people use is the Nvidia 8800 series; most people refuse to upgrade until the prices drop.

In fact I bet half of the people on here complaining about the art style\graphics couldn't even run this game on the 'dream' setting they so desire...do you want them to develop a game you cannot afford to run or if you can, your friends can't?

Your constant need for perfection is killing the mmo industry

Accept this game for what it is - rather than judging it based on some unrealistic view of how you would like it to be.

Clumsy animation with poor voice over. What the heck was that??

SWTOR feels more and more like Clone Wars Adventures...  :/

We will try this game and leave it just as fast.

@Shiftless: It kinda looks like she pulled it from her rectum. Shouldn't that be the smuggler class?

 

As a side note: I really like that art. I didn't see anything bad about it. Maybe I should watch again

Well, I was rather excited about playing a trooper.... Until I saw that video. I mean really? A trooper can face down a sith and even win with minimum wounds to his/her own person? Okay, the blowing the guy up mid-air was pretty funny, but what type of retard sits there like a droid and fires from open space rather than from under cover. So far the game looks dissappointing but I'll still play the free trial (if they even have one) just to see for myself.

my take is that using a female squad was uhh what were they thinking, not exactly a way to get me going for a trooper class

Graphics are kind of meh, but I don't see a problem with the Art Direction other than being too Star Wars in some instances. Honestly, when I look at this game it's refreshing. When I look at the other upcoming MMOs I think, "What are they thinking?"

 

Few things about this game I'm sure I'll hate, but looks better than anything else coming out.

I say if people are complaining about the graphics, bioware should let there be a beta test for those you complain about the graphic's, and let them decide if they want to play it or not.
