Think this could be the first MMO I even considered playing, KOTOR but newer - sounds all good to me....
Man I had high hopes for this. Gameplay yeh looks a little meh. But the Graphics are my main dissapointment. it looks like the Clone Wars (never happened, never happened, never.....) It looks worse than KOTOR! Why go with the cartoony style and deviate from the former and like most SW games realism feel? Jeez I hope these models are just test ones. I expect far better from Bioware. Hope they improve drastically.
This combat looks so bad that it almost looks like it's still in development and beta testing hasn't event begun yet!....oh wait.
hmm wat if some one end the quest in a way you didnt want it to go exapmle: ok i will spare your life, well im not BAM,......dick
I still wish they did not go with a cartoony style for the graphics, but I suppose something Age of Conanish wouldn't work because of technical limits. (Lasers and lightsabers are probably a lot harder than swords and little flame effects) Sigh. But it's Bioware. If anyone can pull of cartoony graphics, it's them... or Blizzard, but we saw how that turned out. Yuck.
I love all the people that complain about this game, like the gfx suck, or the demo videos are not impressive enough, or do I have to pay subscription fees etc etc. You guys know this is the bigest most time consuming MMO ever made by bioware whom of which made the awesome mass effect 2 game recently. Unless this game is glitchy all to hell when it released this will be the mmo to play, way better than any blizzard garbage. I'm not even that big of a starwars fan and I can't wait for this game to be released, I can guarantee I will be playing this game on day one .
@3ldil agreed I hope the community doesnt become snooty like wow. and people this game still has about 8 months left of development, it's still in beta stages, this is close to what it's gonna look like but not near complete. The gameplay will be faster, and there will be a lot more action going on.
@Lofanator25 Yeah, you really need online to play this game. It's an MMO after all. Although they say you can probably solo the entire game. I am still pretty sure the internet is required regardless. And also to change your picture, just go to your profile. The setting is there, somewhere.
I really want to get this but i was wondering if online is something you need to play this game because the only pc in the house is a old laptop without internet connection. Also how can I change my picture on the left it sucks.
no matter how rubbish the gameplay looks (which personally i dont think you can tell from this vid as it is obviously low level mission and even WoW looks boring at low level when it isn't) the impressive thing i can see is that all interactions with the npc's are fully voiced. i know they are in Kotor but (hopefully) swtor will be massive and for all the missions to be full voice acted will be awesome i think
@lexington He is right this game looks like crap. I am a huge fan of the original to games an quite honestly i think the graphics in the first two were better but the gameplay still looks fun.
@ Anyone who is calling any negative commenter impatiant, blindly defending this game using the cliche arguement: "its a demo or its not finished." No s*** Sherlock. The fact is, yes, the FACT, is that these 3 videos make the game look like crap. Bioware should know that they should show an impressive video, or nothing at all. Its on them. I dont care how many more months they have making this game. You do not take the turkey out of the oven when its half cooked just to show your family that your making a turkey.
Well, if this vid is anything to go by, Bio'arts can kiss the MMO crown bye bye becasue Blizzard will be running away into the distance laughing with it. I'm actually quite shocked as to how rubbish this vid made the game look. A work in progress yes but I can't see them changing much in the next few months. I'd say release now so when Cata comes out at least the game would of made a few quid.
Man, the last few people to comment were negative, personally I love this kind of game play video and dislike the "hype" and trailer videos as they give little idea of what the actual game will be like. The trailer for Dragon Age: Origins is an exception to that, as it rocked and was why I bothered to buy the game and then the game totally rocked as well. When I first saw this game advertised I thought we we're getting a new KotOR installment and got very excited. Not so interested in an MMO. Personally I am a bit over them, as the communities tend to end up elitist and snooty like the WoW community and being a casual player I just don't have time to play more. The casual player gets left behind the masses and ends up playing on their own, which has lead me back to playing more traditional rpg's.
I think Bioware have got the wrong idea releasing gameplay videos this soon. The sort of videos they need to be sending to the public are more like the previous theatrical ones, which serve to hype up the target market. This just looks a little bit crappy at the moment, and like it needs work (which I have no doubt they'll put in), which lowers the viewer's opinion of the game before it's even released. tl;dr: Bioware should wait until they have the game coherently sorted out before they start releasing gameplay videos.
u r right lucky marlin, if this is gameplay its pointless buying it looks like a 4 year olds game. Also if you watch the other official movie, u will realise you can kill everyone and anyone, because of the set choices you have.
@ sithsadist Lots of MMOs had stories. Everyone likes to conveniently forget games like final fantasy XI. Anyways this looked pretty bad if this was actual gameplay.
@jazilla As well as VO, they have the story element, which no other MMO has had to date. And the fact that aren't any stupid "Kill such and such and get sword with +1 damage" quests is nice.
I don't think it will be a wow killer but it will give the a run for their money...I think it will be a long time before wow is no more and i believe this one will stay around for a long time as well.
Doesnt look like wow..What its going to be is a wow killer..Maybe you mean this..Im hopeful any how..Want to here what they are doing for raids an such..
This looks fun when it's just you and your friend, but what do you think it would be with another 100-1?? people running around in the same area.
Would be nice if these videos didn't choose the kill feature every time. The voice work is pretty great though. I hope that isn't the only thing that separates it from other MMO's.
Isn't that fat guy the same NPC as the Inquisitor/Warrior video? Just with black hair rather than white?
