    This game blows. If all you want is a great leveling experience but endgame that is worthless then this is the game 4u.

    This game blows. If all you want is a great leveling experience but endgame that is worthless then this is the game for you. KOTOR was great and the leveling experience is like that and is great. Bu...

    Ticks all the right boxes but gets very boring quickly.

    I was so looking forward to this game after playing SWG, WOW and Mass Effect. At the beginning it all seemed very impressive with the rich backdrops, fantastic orchestral music and reasonable graph...

    When playing Star Wars Old Republic I'm reminded of the phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    Everything that is right about Star Wars Old Republic is overshadowed by the many things that are so terribly wrong. Where there is great action and cinematics, you also find game defining bugs and h...

    Great story after that it has to many problems.

    I love the story but the game for me has a unfinished feeling. Companions which are a major part of solo game often do not follow or are totally unresponsive. Skills that are great at low...

    Every detail is extreme. Either really epic or entirely catastrophic.

    I never was a fan of MMORPG-s and I still remember the day I cursed Bioware for ruining the Kotor games in such a way. About half a year ago I got the opportunity to play World of Warcraft and thought...

    Rated on February 16, 2012 by Xetor

    From one of the best developer in the world - only after Blizzard ofc - I expected much-much more. SWTOR is a very solid game, well made, that's true, but it's a really boring for one, who played a lo...

    The Old Republic borrows the good ideas from an old formula and refines it with what BioWare does best: storytelling.

    WHY THIS GAME IS UNIQUE: Star Wars: The Old Republic is a good MMO. In fact it is good enough to get someone, like me, who doesn't care much for the genre to join the fray. It might be surprisin...

    It's good, but it's also too much of the same.

    Rated on February 18, 2012 by ArchonOver

    SWTOR was one of my most anticipated games in 2011, along with Skyrim and The Witcher 2. I had high hopes for BioWare, despite Dragon Age 2. I had belief that they had enough time on the project and t...

    Veterans of the MMO genre may suffer from deja vu but newcomers should definitely consider this their first stop.

    The Good: - Stories make you feel invested in your character. - Voice acting does improve questing. - Excellent for casual players. - Easy to pick up and play. The Bad: - Extremely unpolis...
