That cinematic was simply breathtaking.

I had sincerely thought WoW had one that was indescribably wonderful, but this one takes the cake.

Bioware, despite a half-baked title this year, really know their cinematics.

Absolutely outstanding. If as much care to detail and action goes into the game it will be awesome.

That was a really cool movie.  I wonder if we'll be able to do any of that stuff, or have encounters that engaging or exciting in the actual game.

Also, no bounty hunters or imperial agents.  :(

Quality accross the board; This will be an EPic Game for those who understand how to enjoy a game. Sadly the rat race to end game players in a week will get nothing out of this game.

As their selfishness will not allow them to have fun when it i not at the expense of others; Which this game will not all.

You have to give Bioware/LArts and EA credit here.

Admittedly, it will not, but what this trailer does show is Bioware's penchant for story writing.  The individual quest lines themselves may often feel this epic, and that''ll be a significant improvement over those of every other MMO out there.

BTW, the lightsaber fight in this was far, far more epic than anything in the Prequels...

Looks nice but don't we all get taken in by game companies fomulatic trailers every time.  Every Star Wars video opens with a shot of a planet and the score from the films.

We are like Pavlov's dogs, we are trained to salvitate at hearing Star Wars music and cool visuals.  Why does every smuggler have to be a knock off of Han Solo.

Please be more creative and original next time, you can do better

Bioware should consider making a full length star wars movie the same way they make these cinematics, perhaps one of Revan.

OK se when did Jonah Hex enter the star wars realm?


1. too much creative liberty with the western style smuggler.  seems like they are ripping off Jos Whedon's concept in Firefly.  But i know it is the guy from Warhammer who tried to sell the Witch Hunter but claiming that kid would want t play the class just for the hat.  Any way you slice it : a ridiculous and short sighted anachronism.

2. Beaultiful graphics work.  But with a ever so important RECYCLED STORYLINE.  References to Han Solo are trite.  And did that jedi say "SHIT, the empire is here?"  Come on now.  A cursing Jedi?  Can't wait to see more repetetive scenes, and senseless dialogue. 

you know there is so much to complain about, but i dont want to upset the delusional.

I do know that a game should spend more money and time on mechanics, content and economy than they do on cinematices and advertising.

That was an epic quality trailer.

The combat scene reminded me of SW: Force Unleashed.

Oh, and why do the Sith masters always kick the Jedi masters ass?  Lame.

This cinematic was so easy to do, and look at you guys all foaming at the mouth.

There was nothing original or interesting ABOUT this cgi fest.  "It was better than the prequels!" ... IT WAS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE PREQUELS.

A short loaded with cliches of every variety.  Slow motion Matrix effects. The bad guys dominating.  These are some of the most simplistic and unimaginative ingredients to cooking up a steaming pile of...

Who cares, I'm thrilled you guys loved it. I'll be here when you all finaly play the game and subsequently start bad mouthing it like all the others.

Love TOR era (rpg player here) but I hope they keep the non-jedi classes represented as the one draw back to the old republic era is the extreme over done force sensitive classes. Simply gets old and boring even in rpg's.

What truly sets this era apart is the great well rounded lore with all factions represented and not just the zomgsaursjedisyth's!

That aside, I look forward to all the class stories. Picking just one class is not what this game is about.

Er I think you need to look up what a Cinematic is :)

Several classes and game play elements told through cinematics was in there.

That is the definition of substance within cinematic story telling.

I don't think that bioware actually makes the movies, I thought that they outsourced them?  At any rate, I loved it.  I am cautiously optimistic about the game, and hope we get a solid release date this week at E3.

absolutely amazing cinematic. Unfortunately the game I seriously doubt will get even close to that.

Reminded me of the opening sequence to DC Universe. Also absolutely amazing... and then the game is just horrible.

I hope SWTOR is just half as cool as that video, if it is, it will do amazingly well. However, I have a strong feeling it will fail to live up to it.

Man, if only the last three Star Wars films had been of this caliber, I'd still be a fan of Lucas rather than wishing him to the Ninth Circle of Hell.

I DO love Bioware, and I hope that the game is as epic as the cinematics they've been producing.  In this era of "next gen" graphics, and with the hype that each of these fantastically rendered cinematics creates, I hope that we're not being set up for disappointment.

Not too long ago, someone posted video footage of actual gameplay that others claimed was old footage from a few years ago.  I really hope that was true, because what I saw was only worthy of a pre-development sales pitch.
