Yea, much better than the other videos. Combat still look boring though...


The running animation still need work as well... Especially since we are going to see that one the most as we run from A to B and so on.

I'd like to think I'm an MMORPG gamer but I haven't really played one in years while I've been enjoying the hek out of Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2. I think my opinion of the game has done a 180. I still don't really understand how it will work, but I think I'll enjoy it quite a lot more than I would another single player KOTOR or pure MMORPG.

People complain, but I enjoy the graphics a lot more than what other MMOs have. Anything looks better than WoW at this point. Let's just hope Bioware gives us the great content they are known for putting in games and I'll be more than happy.

Who said that was Yoda??!?  This game is set before the star wars triliogy came about.. And the species has more than one sentient in the Jedi Order..  Sheesh


For me this is going to be awsome.. A new twist on the MMO genere with the story driven game.. You cant say its not Inovative.. :)

It can't be yoda. The Game is set place 3000 tears before the movies. Yoda was only 800 when he died.

That would be really stupid on Biowares part if it was.

Still can't wait for the game!

A new KotoR with coop mode for small group of friends. It would work, if it wouldn't require monthly payments.

I would expect alot more out of a 2011 MMO.

I dunno....My first thought as soon as I hit play was "This is what it looks like with all the money they have spent?"

I'm  probably going to get it anyway....but I hope the gameplay/story makes up for the sub -par graphics.

Oh another Yoda species creature! We actually get to see another of Yoda's kind.  When can we go to its homeworld?  Oh thats right, we rarely ever see any of the seemingly main characters homes, the lone exceptions that I can think of are Chewie's, the furry little bears  and the computer generated creature, both who shall go un-named for sanities sake.

I have no idea what the hell they are doing. Everything I have seen and read about the game so far points to a solo game . Are they gonna charge a monthly payment for this? Are we supposed to go to these instances with a group and wait for each person to read through all this backstory? Have the developers ever played an MMO for more than a few months? 

The game looks great and I love Star Wars , but the designing decisions are moronic. Nothing I have seen so far justifies playing the game more than 2-3 months.

I so much love the cinematics, but when I see this cartoony style that the game will actually look like, it is an absolute turn off.

Can't help wondering what they were thinking when they made that decision... copies sold for kids : /

Combat still looks pathetic. People are standing in place throwing spells/shootinh blaster/swinging swords without moving.

Run animation is so stiff. Like upper body does not know what lower body does, and vie versa.

Its not Yoda damn it.  You do know there are others from the same spieces as Yoda.  The species is Unknown in Starwars Lore but all members of his type had long lifespans.  Most of the Yodas people also were carriers of the force.  Heck even in an old game Jedi Knight 2 you had to fight one of his race in a saber battle.  Point being Yoda is not alone. 

As for the graphic I am glad to see they are doing it in a stylized version.  I hate when games try to make everything look real and you end up need a super computer to have more than 10 people on the screen at once.  Some of the aninations need a little help though(running being one.)  Other than that I think it looks good.

Can only speak for myself. Long time player (I am 65 and a former game designer - retired). I play WOW (4 years now) and still enjoy and play it. I play Star Trek (disappointed at launch but they got better - a lot better) and now I am looking forward to Star Wars.


There is an awful lot of point picking from some posters. I assume (foolish) that if those points are important, they will not buy or play the game. For myself I intend to pre-order and play SWtOR and give it a chance. I live in reality (old age can kinda suck sometime) and the gaming is a nice hobby and ESCAPE from reality. I really hope the very critical will give it a chance since the more that buy and play the game, the better it will be for us all.


Best of luck to Bioware, I know the hard work and dedication it takes to produce a game (been there done that) and then have to hold my breath and see if we did it right, enough to profit and keep it going. The video and flash point concept may work out fine.


Not just a fanboi btw. I hate the idea that space combat is a video game tunnel shooter. Believe it was the fastest and cheapest way to add on space combat after community rage. Really hope they can later extend RPG to the space segment cause arcade games suck for a replacement. Critique not criticism. Hope to see most of you in game.

The game looks like crap, the animation and combat looks like the designers forgot to finish what they started, and Yoda sounds a little more like Kermit than i remember him sounding....Good rule of thumb to follow, if game looks like crap then it most diffidently  is.

The game looks nice to me. I cant tell about the actually game play or what feel will transmit to the player but so far it looks good. I hope they improve animation a bit.


About the combat, well all combat looks the same. Its not an action game but an MMO with a hidden turn roll. You sure want a game like Conan's battle system, where you have to concedrate which freaking arrow to press?
