Admittedly I was at best sceptical over Bioware's announcement - back in 2008 - that they would henceforth continue the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic franchise (which I adore) as an MMO. I don't like MMOs; I find them more often than not to be shallow and the worst representations of video games as a leisure activity. Also, the communities in-game and over the internet seem to attract the worst examples of gamer.

When I entered the universe of Star Wars: The Old Republic, I would say many of my reservations were put aside. The game fits right in with the Star Wars RPG standard set by KotOR, with an extraordinary amount of quality voice acting and an engaging story from the get go. The dialogue mechanics also make grouping up a rather fun experience. This was all to be expected from Bioware and the story elements are where this game really shines above the competition (MMO or otherwise). The combat is a definite improvement over KotOR 2, which could be rather sluggish and frankly quite boring at times. In ToR the hotkey-based combat mechanics add more strategy and depth, yet remain perfectly accessible. It's not innovative in itself but is a great solution for this particular franchise.

Gameplay outside of the story is of the familiar MMO archetype, and is also for the most part optional. If you don't like PvP, grouping, guilds you can easily avoid these elements and still have a huge game to enjoy. But you can't ignore the fact that ToR is an MMO. The odd server queue (although drastically reduced since launch), glitches, and less than optimal framerate (with respect to the graphical fidelity) make sure of this. Oh, and yeah a monthly fee. Yet it's worth tolerating this to enjoy the larger game that ToR is, larger perhaps because of the fact that it is an MMO...

I, like many on here, have played WoW and it is rediculous to review any new game in this genre without any comparisons to what is the defining version of any game in this field to date....I enjoyed it, but it has begun to feel stale and moving backwards and was eager for something else to come along and if not blow it out the water at least nuzzle up along-side it and settle in to the genre...I feel SWTOR is the best in a very long time to give this a very good attempt. As I so delicately put it to a friend of mine, SWTOR is like WoW before they started catering for idiots.

What a lot of reviewers do need to understand is this is a brand new MMO. It is pointless addressing issues about end-game content available at launch, about bugs and such and compare it to an MMO that has been aroudn for the best part of a Decade. If anyone tried out Age of Conan then they have a fair idea of just how bad a new MMO can be at launch. SWTOR is a very good game at launch, and it is not my place here to speculate on future content (if you powered to max level then you clearly missed the point of this game and as such deserve all you get - or don't get to hit the nail on the head).

This game offers a truly immersive environment, a trip into the raging battles between the Republic and the Empire 2,000 years before Anakin was even bump on the horizon of the merchandising world. You are able to choose from a number of iconic classes ranging from Bounty Hunters and Smugglers through to the force weilding Jedi and Sith. Each class has a completely different path to choose with some having a number roles to fulfill....but be warned, once you choose a particular path at level 10 that is it and there is no going back, your destiny is set in stone (at least for that character hehe).

So I played the Beta and have to say I was impressed enough to buy the game. I kinda wish I hadn't though. What I didn't realise after only playing about 15 levels in the Beta is that the game never, ever opens up...you just have a linear path through each planet and only one planet for each level bracket. Class quests only make up about 2-3 quests each planet, so basically once you've played 1 republic and 1 empire character you've seen pretty much everything the game has to offer in terms of quests and the 'fully voice acted (using heavily recycled phrases) story.'

Graphically the game is decent, and if you look up once in awhile you really appreciate the great draw distance and level of detail of the surroundings, although the immediate scenery can look a bit basic. The animation of combat is particularly outstanding, but there we also have an absolutely major issue for an mmo and one I can't see as being easy to fix without harming how good it looks...the problem is while it looks great, it is massively out of sync with your ability cooldowns so even when your ability has refreshed you're still unable to use it until the previous animation has finished. In most genre's it wouldn't be such a big deal, in an mmo it's unforgivable.

That's just the first of many bugs. There are also major issues with how companions work, guild menu's display, frame rate drops on high end systems, some bounty hunters not being able to progress past a certain class quest etc etc. And that's as well as a poorly featured auction house and an overly simplistic crafting system that is going to make it extremely difficult to establish any meaningful economy for the foreseeable future.
