5 out of 5 eggsExcellent MMORPG

Comments: I played Star Wars Galaxies (SWG) from the first day it was released. It was pretty much non-stop playing for about 6 months, until I realized I hadn't eaten or moved from my chair. :-p

It's very addictive, but the pace is quite slow. You find yourself wandering around in the vast wildernesses of various planets, in awe of the graphics, sunsets, when all of a sudden a giant Veermok (think king kong) starts chasing you down a hill. Fortunately you can shoot while running, so you're pulling a Han Solo, blasting away over your shoulder while beating a hasty retreat. It's really that combination of "slowness" combined with the occasional intense bouts of action that kept me hooked. The $15 per month charge didn't seem to "buy" much, other than the ability to store quite a few items in a house (which are relatively cheap, but finding a good spot to build is tough).

There's an upcoming expansion that I'm looking forward to (but my wife is NOT looking forward to it), that will allow players to build, purchase, and fly spacecraft <font>-</font>- fight with other players, travel around the galaxy, or do whatever you like. It's pretty much as close to the movies as it gets!

Bottom line: if you've got a couple hours to spare everyday, and $15 per month is acceptable to you, then you should definitely check out SWG (and the upcoming expansion). BTW, newegg's price is quite cheap, I paid $60 when it came out.

5 out of 5 eggsExelent

Comments: I have had this game for 2 months, And it is exelent!
This game is great if you have just bought a new Fatty Vid card because it will push it to the limit with Graffics! If you pump up the graffics your video card will feel the pain! I know because I have tryed this on Ut2k4 and BattleField as well and and theres no copitition for my card there, Full power nuthin bringin me down, But on this game I cannot push it all the way, The graffics are great in the game Even on the mid settings the graffics beat high on Battlefield and Highest on ut2k4!

4 out of 5 eggsVery fun game... need a fast comp. though

Comments: I got this game within a month of its release. When it first came out it was the typical MMORPG with lots of bugs and lack of information about professions. Now that it has aged more many of the bugs have been worked out and the amount of online documentation via the game maker or third party has increased magnitudes.

This game has incredible graphics for an MMORPG and an incredibly diverse <font>s</font>election of characters, races and professions. Unlike most RPG's this game does take some time to master, even for those of you who sit behind your computer playing your RPG for 10hrs a day. The added features of player vehicles enhances gameplay as well. Overall I would say this is one of the best MMORPGs on the market.

Some bad sides of this game... I hope you have at pretty well equiped machine to run it smoothly. I first started playing this game with a P4 1.8 512MB DDR333 GF4 TI4200 ATA100 HD. When this game first came out this was not considered too bad of a configuration. But, alas, i was frequented with choppy screens and cursed with low graphic settings to get it to run smoothly. Also it does cost about 15 a month (depending on how many months you get at a time) which i think is a bit on the high side.

Overall this game has come into its own and can be quite enjoyable for both solo and group players (solo players will note some disadvantages) and if you have the cash, the system, and a taste for Star Wars RPG, then I think this is a great choice.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Game for Onl;ine Play

Comments: The person who said they should have made this with a "single-player" mode obviously did not research the game at all and ha sno idea what he/she is saying.

Star Wars Galaxies is a Massively Multiplyer Online Role-Playing Game. ALL play is DESIGNED to be online. It was never meant to be a single player game.

It has it's shortcomings and faults...the "role-playing" aspect goes only as far as the other players allow it to, which many times is not far. Still, it is a very in-depth and awe-inspiring game. I have been involved with SWG since it's beta testing and it is my favorite game to play. Practically the only thing i play now.

3 out of 5 eggsonline game only

Comments: if you don't have a lot of time in your life, and don't feel like dedicating yourself to the game, I'd not recommend this game for you.. all game play is online.. and first 30 days are free. it was a great idea.. but they needed to have a single player like diablo or something
