About this product
- Product InformationStar Wars: The Old Republic is a persistent world role-playing game that has you fighting in an epic war between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire. Become a Jedi Knight, Sith warrior, bounty hunter, smuggler, or one of four other class types as you explore the base game's 17 worlds, each home to numerous quests, characters, and challenges.
The interface and combat system are designed in a similar fashion to previous games in the genre, with players viewing their characters from a third-person viewpoint and clicking on individual keys to initiate different forms of attacks and powers. You'll hone your combat skills against an assortment of droids, creatures, and humanoids, either alone or with the help of others.
One distinctive element of The Old Republic is its emphasis on cinematic storytelling. Dialogue sequences are completely voice acted, for example, and you'll be able to fight alongside companion characters that will actively converse with your character, become more proficient in combat, and even offer the possibility of romance. You will also make decisions during quests that will earn you either light or dark Force points that can eventually be used to unlock exclusive powers.
In addition, Star Wars: The Old Republic lets you captain a personal starship to engage in space combat or to use for transportation. The game also features land-based vehicles, a galactic trade network for selling and buying items, dedicated social hubs, areas designed specifically for player versus player combat, and cooperative raid-type encounters called operations. A monthly fee of $14.99 is required to continue playing the game after the first 30 days.

Not bad can be PRICES per month. NOT as good as our Freelancer Mod.
Expensive to get the good stuff and subscription fee is $14.99 and UP. FREE players get next to nothing. It is HIGHLY suggested to at the least buy a $4.95 package to get preferred treatment, extra account slots you only get 2 for FREE PLAY. The loading process is BUGGED right now so you have to enter a special number emailed to you EVERY time you log in, though not all players have that issue. The game is fun to a degree. Fighting is LAME but they are working on the space fighting and such and that may prove to be fun. As the owner of Discovery Freelancer mod discoveryptc dot net we judge ALL space games against Freelancer and this may prove to be fun but Freelancer is STILL THE BEST. We are modding our version greater than ever before now. Get the game but get the small purchase to help a lot. Read full review

Great game. Give it some time and they will add more stuff.
Everybody says this is a re-skinned version of wow. That pretty much is true. However, something are different from wow. Each class has its own story line and you will and I mean YOU will enjoy the main story line. This really makes you want to make a new character just for the story line. Now if you don't care about any story and just want to grind battle grounds then this game is not for you. However, if you do like stories with voice acting then this game is pretty awesome. The graphics are not bad at all if you have it on high. For the sound I really never pay attention to most things as long as some sort of noise is coming out that matches the picture so go read up on somebody else for that. Also, the leveling is not that slow if you have a friend that levels with you. It will takes about 1.5x longer to level up if you level alone. (bonus quest exp for grouping up) Now for the bad part... I really have to say they put in too many servers into the game. After the first month or so most of the OMG THIS IS NOT WOW people left so a lot of the servers are not populated. Bioware did say they will offer paid server transfers and free ones soon so that is a good sign. It seems to be implemented early summer 2012 if i remember correctly. Also, 15 bucks a month but it's the same with most other pay worthy mmo. You could also pay bi-yearly for 10bucks a month. And it's only been out for 5months so there really isn't that much end game content. Overall, it is a great game with potential. People who rage about dual talents and dungeon finders from wow have to remember it took blizzard 3 years to implement that. BioWare will do that too but just not in half a year. Besides, it really isn't that hard to go on the fleet and type "LFG Dungeon" in general chat. Yeah it takes time but for god's sake you're playing an MMO go watch TV or something if you don't want to do that. Oh wait, you already unsubscribed so never mind. So please ignore the people who say they don't have anything. It hasn't been even a year and people bash on this game expecting to have everything WOW has. (once again, it took WOW 3 years for dungeon finder and dual talent) LSS: Great game. Give it some time and bioware will add more features and content. Read full review

This game is entertaining but there are some tedious aspects
I enjoyed the first 20 levels because of the storyline, however the gameplay becomes stagnant as soon as you hit Tatooine. I only managed to hit level 35 before my 30 days were up, so I didn't get to experience end-game content, however I felt I experienced enough to know this game wasn't for me. I'm an original classic WoW player and this just didn't measure up to it. What I liked: *Gear customization is fun *Crafting/Gathering isn't tedious *Sith storyline was immersive *Having your own ship *Having a companion (which is a lifesaver for planets that don't have people who want to group up) *The world design is consistent with Star Wars Issues: *On a "normal" population server, it still felt like low pop (hard to find groups while leveling). *Combat isn't always smooth, and the repeated slashing animations get boring after a while *No auto-attack, which might be a good thing for some, but gets tedious when you have to press keys constantly to kill something. *No "dungeon finder" to get you into a Flash Point without difficulty finding a group. *Can't change your specialization once you pick it (If you pick sorcerer, you can never be an assassin) Ideally, they should cut the number of servers down to keep the total game population centralized. Leveling and group-finding would be much better if players weren't so spread out over dozens of servers. Read full review

Promising, but yet immature. Customer policy sometime hard to understand.
Leveling up a character is a pleasure, no repetitive kill-tasks like the ones in DAoC for example. Craft system is immature but will probably improve with time. There is a lack of high-level content, but remember this is a new game which will grow up. I'm happy after 8 weeks of play, this is all I can say now. For the bad part: the customer policy. I noticed two things I really disliked : - you have to know that buying the game will NOT be enough to play. You will be forced to either buy a prepaid time code, or give your credit card number for a subscription. EA will not let you play your "included 30 days" without that. - after activating your account (game licence + prepaid time code or credit card number), you will not be able to use the "invite your friends for a free 7 days trial" feature. Even if every mail from technical support will show an ad for this feature, you will be told that you are not a full customer until your included 30 days are over. Quite frustrating and hard to understand: I may be wrong, but if I buy a game box and give my credit number to some company, I expect to be considered a customer. Well, time will show which side of the Force is the leading one :) Read full review
