I've never played an MMO in my life and, being perfectly honest, I never really intended to rectify that ever. But if ever an MMO could get me inspired to have a bash, it would most likely be Star Wars: The Old Republic, a game made by a developer I respect, based on a brand I'm engaged with, also based on a game series I love! So what's stopping me? Not really sure to be honest...
So, in lieu of the fact that EB is selling grey imported copies of the game ahead of time, and the fact that Bioware has made the game import friendly for Australians who wanted to get online day one, I thought maybe now was as good as any to get a community review of the game going. So how are you guys finding the game?
From what I've heard, Star Wars: The Old Republic has garnered a mostly positive reaction thus far. There are similarities to World of Warcraft, of course, but the addition of voice acting, and Bioware-style dialogue choices appear to have added a new dimension to the whole MMO experience.
But the downtime, the online queues?
Anyway — I know next to nothing about the game, having not logged a single, solitary hour into the thing, so I'll totally leave it to you guys: what are your thoughts on the game? Let us know in the comments below.
