Honestly, absolutely amazing both in terms of information and the sheer amount of artwork. Even though the game's a few years old, and even if you don't play it (I don't anymore myself), the book is still a great read. Highly recommended if you're into Star Wars artwork.

If you like Star Wars the old Republic game then this book is an essential companion. It gives a huge amount of detail about the game characters, sets the time line for the period and brings the characters to life. Written by the people who created the game it is well written very informative and looks great on the coffee table - that is if you can put it down!!

With 'The Old Republic', BioWare introduced a whole new time frame of the Galaxy Far Far Away, with a new galaxy-spanning war and a new Empire of Sith Lords.

If you're a TOR gamer and want to know more about the world you'll be exploring or if you're a Star Wars fan curious about what's going on with all the new characters and settings, then this is undoubtedly the book for you.
No prior knowledge of the game or its setting are needed to delve into this treasure trove.

A beautifully designed book with full colour pages from start to finish featuring paintings and CGI character models of people, places, weapons, vehicles and creatures.

When I bought this book it was as a Star Wars completist; I wasn't expecting it to be much more than a cash-in for the game. But what I discovered was one of the most delightful Star Wars reference books I've ever read. I can honestly say I've not been so pleased with a reference book since I bought the first edition of the Star Wars Encyclopedia as a teenager (back when my Star Wars book collection numbered about ten rather than the hundreds I have now!).

Extremely nice item in every regard. It has a great deal of background on the story which is nice. It also gives some additional lore and engagement on the classes. I am very happy with the item which does exactly what it says it will do in the manufactorer write up.

In this Encyclopedia, there is everything you want to know about the Old Republic! It fills in the gaps if you play online, and like me, if you read the novels, you have a great insight on the character's and what they look like. :-)

This is a beauiful book, worth owning even if you aren 't playing Star Wars The Old Republic. Needs updating to include the Hutt Cartel Expansion and the planet Makeb, it would be great if it was available on Kindle Fire just like the "World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria" Guide. As a guide to "Star Wars the Old Republic" game I am finding it extremely useful.

You want to know how the old republic came to be, what drove the jedi and the sith to opose each other, what there origins are, ..., then buy this big and heavy encyclopedia. It's full of clear descriptions and amazing graphics which make you forget time and reality.

A big coffee table style book. A must for those who can tear themselves away from the game to look at it. Glad I bought it but still have not got around to reading it - I dip in and out of it and enjoy it very much between gaming.
