5 out of 5 eggsGood game getting better

Pros: I have been playing this game since it fist came out and here are a few thoughts. Its a very good game with great graphs (since patch 1.3). You can not compare this to WoW since WoW has been out for several years and has fixed all their screw ups. With that said I would still rather play SWtOR as it stands now. I think think BioWare was wanting to hold off on the release date due to it not being finish but EA wanted to rush it out during the Christmas holidays. It was not a finished game when it first came out but you can tell with the patches that the devs are going to make this into a quality MMO before long. I really do think that it is going to just get better from here on out and I plan to keep playing till the end.

Cons: The only thing I can think of was when it first came out it was not a finished game. Since then the devs have put out a couple of patches that has helped make it into a very enjoyable game.

Other Thoughts: Try the game, take advantage of the free to play till lvl 15. I can honestly say that in the 8 months that I have been playing I have ran into maybe 5 other players that were into name calling and putting down other players. Its a great player base and I enjoy my time playing it with out fail.

5 out of 5 eggsGame ok; customer service bad

Pros: Game is ok for my 1st time ever playing any Star Wars PC games. I give 5 eggs for game, not for SWTOR customer service whihc they get 0 eggs.

Cons: Customer service horrible. Just down right terrible.

Other Thoughts: I had bought the game elsewhere but it came with no key. I went to customer service about this and they told me to provide pics of genuine ownership with the receipt to prove which I had and had no problem showing proof of my purchase. I haven't heard anything since then so I sent the game back. I did try the game at a friend's house which is why I gave it 5 eggs cause it's pretty cool. I had read on their support forums that some employees that packaged the game were stealing the keys. Bogus. They get paid and probably get discounts on this game & yet that isn't good enough for them so they steal from their employers. Shameful & disgraceful. We, the players of this game suffer by getting ripped off & paying full price for this game. Check out their forums on this. I was surprised to read about that.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible "current gen" MMO

Pros: Its in the SW universe

Cons: Buyer beware!!!

This game is hemorrhaging customers and fans, and there is a reason:

1) Atrocious customer service
2) Minimal endgame - its a joke
3) Theme-park style game play
4) Heavy handed forum moderation to hide the truth
5) Game engine is a 3rd party pile of junk. The fact it still running DX9 when DX11 is already out pretty much explains everything. Game engine is unable to handle more than 50ish people in a shard/instance etc and thus must be split up (even in fleet)
6) Economy is non-existent
7) Arcade on rails "space-battles" is a sick joke
9) Dev's are clueless and disconnected
10) PVP is a joke
11) Crafting is nonexistent
12) Classes are completely imbalanced

There are so many ways to compare this to the big elephant that is WOW, but this game just falls flat on its face. And don't even bother dealing with customer service, or point out problems, because you WILL BE MODERATED. Its a massive BW/EA coverup really, to hide how bad the state of this game.

Other Thoughts: I actually bought the CE. What a waste of money. This is not the same company that bought you Baldur's Gate. Ever since they sold out to EA, its been downhill.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Package

Pros: Keep in mind that I'm a diehard Star Wars fan and have been waiting for this game since the fail that was Galaxies.

I should not I have yet to play the game, this review is just based on unboxing. First this BOX is HUGE! Like it is the size of my mid tower huge. The artwork on it is amazing. Then you open the box and WOW! It has amazing stuff. First the cent has a status a the dark Lord Magus. Typically I hate toy figures/statues but this one is built solid and has a nice home on my desk now I love it! Then the cool security key (think like a secure log in data access key). The DVD's are in a cool tin. Lastly my favorite of all the Journal which is a really qauility is book, someone really thought this one out and put some passion into it, I read this while the game was installing, amazing stuff for Star Wars EU fans.

Read the cons for the rest that's inside the box.

Cons: Now this maybe just me but there were a couple items in the box that were lacking. The galaxie map that they supplied was just lame, it's small and just typical. It doesnt match the epicness of the rest of the items in the box. Lastly the games soundtrack, although it is an amazing soundtrack, they for some reason only have one disc and put it in this cheap as heck leaflet cover. These two things were a huge let down for me. For the cost of this CE and for the true Star Wars fans the Soundtrack should have been two disc in a nice case or tin and the Map should have been more detailed and on better paper.

Other Thoughts: I haven't played the game yet but can't wait. I already have friends playing it and they are 50 only 3 months into launch. They say that the end game content is limited right now. well of course this game just launched. BioWare has some big plans up there sleeves for this masterpeice. I've heard talk of expanding space to open range xwing vs tie fighter exploring and capitol guild ships, etc... BioWare can really do little wrong. Hopefully they remember me at some point lol.

4 out of 5 eggsMay the force be with you

Pros: 1) Good graphics just keep in mind in order to a appeal to to the public they had to water down the graphics
2) Leveling is pretty easy
3) game play is fun

Cons: Nothing that any other MMO this size would have.

Other Thoughts: Just keep in this is a game that has to work on a wide range of systems , so stop complaining about the graphics. if you need help finding where stuff is located at look on youtube

5 out of 5 eggsGreatest MMO EVER!

Pros: Everything. Has more crew skills then WoW. The companion you get is awesome and helps out a lot. Leveling is fun. Great story line. The fact that you get your own ship and can do space battles. This game for story line and everything deffinently more than 5 eggs. Every was packaged well and as described. Love the soundtrack and the journal is very interesting. Better than any MMO I have ever played.

Cons: It's not

1 out of 5 eggsGreat idea+Great Franchise+Horrible Support=Failure

Pros: No pros here....

Cons: Where do I start?? Well how bout with the unboxing of said product.. Everything was there but my registration leaflet wasn't stamped with a registration code for the game.. I have wasted over 15 hours in 9 days dealing with different so called customer support rep. Each of them giving me a different answer one included them telling me to call newegg to get my registration code. I lost my sanity at that point I think.. This game apparently has a rampant issue with this as there are several forums with people that have the same problem as I do and there is a department that deals soley with missing product keys. Most of the others have sent their copies back. Bioware and Lucas have dropped the ball big on this one. I spent the extra $$$ on the CE looking to have a nice long holiday vacation but this has been a nightmare... So if you are looking to waste your precious time and hard earned money then I highly recommend this product...

Other Thoughts: Hey looks like I got a new boat anchor with this purchase!!!
