5 out of 5 eggsBioware is Amazing!

Pros: Love this game since I am a Star Wars nut!

Cons: Wish I would have waited to get it for the price it is at now.

Other Thoughts: If you are not really into Star Wars like I am and are into MMORPG's then I would recommend sticking with WoW or Guild Wars 1 & 2. Just my personal opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsPlaying MMO since vanilla WoW

Pros: First to all the people saying this game sucks,or is "free",you are all a little miss informed. It has a "free" to play aspect but it has limits.basically you can log on and run around a bit.No mounts,No vanity pets,limited flash points,limited PVP,Limited in virtually EVERY aspect of the game.Now, let me say that this game was better when it dropped that WoW was after almost a decade of development.That is just the plain truth.I have played MANY MMO's SWTOR is definitely around the top of the best list.this is a great deal but this game is not for everyone.DL the free version and try have nothing to more thing.I have had to call EA numerous time for various games and problems.they have ALWAYS been courteous and extremely helpful.Have they always solved my problems,no,but they have always taken care of me in other areas with some DLcontent or something like that.As long as u aren't an jerk to them you should be fine.

Cons: Needs a little work but the game just game out.give it some could be one of the greats!

Other Thoughts: Children should be ban from gaming.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't bother paying for it

Pros: Game was fun when it came out. I quit initially because it cost money monthly. Sort of like World of Warcraft or Everquest, only in the Star Wars Universe.

Cons: There is absolutely no reason for you to spend money on this game. Its free and online. There isn't a single player campaign you can play offline.

Other Thoughts: Customer Service was pretty bad when I bought the game. I cancelled m account immediately when originally signing up understanding they auto billed my account although the first month was free. Informed them I cancelled it initially and they still charged my account. They gave me a ticket number that ended up getting lost in limbo.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None - The game was terrible.

Cons: Don't buy this game, its free now, buying the game will just be a waste of money.

Other Thoughts: This game is now free-2-play and you cant do any little thing without paying money. They don't even give customer support to people who bought the game and are playing free. You just have to make a free account and pay monthly to get everything. You don't need the game anymore.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat single player game, semi-good MMO

Pros: In short, SWTOR is fun if you want a single player RPG with some multiplayer thrown in. There are eight different main class-based storylines, so if you don't mind rerunning at least some of the same side quests between them, the game offers up a lot of variety.

I had great fun playing through SWTOR on my first character. I had the most fun with the detailed class storyline and also enjoyed the group-based flashpoints and heroic quests.

In particular, I enjoyed the Imperial Agent and the Smuggler storylines. The Sith Inquisitor line is good if you like zapping things. The others are good, though not hugely memorable.

Cons: I leveled that first character to max and then started others, but after that I simply became bored. The non-class quests are mostly rather bland (largely involving killing lots and lots of stuff) and so too are some of the class quests.

The combat is not very exciting compared to WoW's or GW2's or almost every MMO I've played (it is better than DAOC's). The graphics in general are not amazing and yet they run relatively slowly.

Other Thoughts: SWTOR is planning on going free to play in November, with free accounts being able to play through all the story, so my suggestion is to wait until then and play it as a single player game with some multiplayer elements. If you like the MMO aspects of SWTOR, then buy all the extra stuff.

1 out of 5 eggsaweful

Pros: the game was fun while leveling, all voice acted, and story quests for every class.

Cons: crafting was really bad, the only one worth it was biochem. Most of the endgame content is bugged. The customer service is the worse ive ever seen in an mmo, took them 2 months to respond to a ticket i sent in.

Other Thoughts: customer service also allows you to join a guild and steal everything out of the bank.

2 out of 5 eggsNice try Bioware/EA

Pros: The overall idea having a cinematic mmo with good pve and pvp seemed to good to be true. I did enjoy leveling up my toon up to about lvl 20. Then I realized I never had my expectations met. Perhaps I've just been spoiled.

Cons: Terrible crafting. I could write 1,000+ characters on this alone, but i'll leave it at SWG. Star Wars Galaxies got crafting right, and was really hoping this game would take something from it.

No complex player economy. Like I mentioned earlier, I quit playing this game once i realized it wasn't going to be a SWG2, which i truly wanted. Zero player housing, cities, shops, etc etc.

Bottom line, I never truly believed I was in the Star Wars universe. The immersion just wasn't there for me.

Other Thoughts: I love bioware. I've always had a love/hate relationship with EA, but now that is turning sour. They no longer seem to care about delivering a quality product, but instead focus on hype, poor delivery, and abandonment towards their customers.

1 out of 5 eggsgame is wonderful

Pros: it's STAR WARS, really.
even if you are not a game player this is a way to walk the streets and see the sights as if you were in one of the movies.
if you are a gamer the game is about what you would expect from bioware and is easy to understand and get into at the entry level and as you progress through it the new complexity is introduced gradually and you will find yourself growing with the game as you go.

i don't mind paying $15 a month for this game, it is worth it.
if you're new to games online this one has good introductory initiation to the club.

the other players in the game seem to be more friendly and helpful towards new players than in many other online games i have tried.

Cons: i don't mind paying $15 a month for this game, it is worth it.
the billing system is killing this game.
i strongly suspect that many people are starting the process to become a subscriber and halting the process partway through because they don't like what is being asked of them.
you need to have a credit card or some other way for them to automatically charge you for your monthly subscription fee.
i figure if i am not playing a game often enough to know that it is time to renew my subscription i don't want to be surprised with paying for something i am not using with no option for a refund.

the disrespect shown to the people playing the game through this billing system is insulting beyond belief.

i find it hard to believe that a game company like bioware or an entertainment company like lucasearts would allow their customers to be treated so disrespectfully.

it's shameful that we are required to just lay back and enjoy this violation

Other Thoughts: i don't mind paying $15 a month for this game, it is worth it.
i can't use the game code that i bought here to extend my game time on my existing subscription.
this game is being killed by the billing process that forces you into an agreement to be automatically charged each month.

this is completely unreasonable and beneath the dignity of the two companies involved.

i am saddened to see this violation perpetrated on the user base and do truly believe that it is that main reason that they have needed to reduce the amount of hardware originally invested to operate the server side of the game.
