Ok so I played in Bioware’s Star Wars the Old Republic on Saturday up to last night at 9:21:37 pm MDT. This game is going to be The Star Wars Galaxies Killer. The Grandson succeeds the Grandfather and takes his place upon the seat of power. The questing was decent, not AWESOME or OMG ITS SO LEET! It was decent, the species and wildlife were well scripted and the voice acting was nice as well on par with skyrim if not slightly better (Biased opinion of course).
I honestly don’t do many MMO’s at all save for maybe Champions, City of Heroes and DC Universe (THERE IS NO PATTERN HERE ). But SWTOR had a good storyline for the beta. I got the droid, I found a datacron, was able to build up to level 10 at the end of the beta, which I didn’t think I was going to be able to do. Delivered a Flesh raider to the Jedi Counsel for training defeated 2 Millinea old droids, rode an ancient scout speeder. Learnt many ways of the force and a bit of the Force Wars from the ancient times on Tython and even explored the necropolis under the jedi temple near the forge.
Graphics were great, the gameplay smooth, lag barely any at all. Had one glitch and was able to correct it by hitting my inventory key of all things and back to normal after closing it. There is a bountiful fountain of knowledge for Both Jedi and Sith alike. Be careful how you tread try to keep on the path of light and not turn to the dark side, choice there are careful be you shall. I’ll post the pics I made at the last two levels near the end.
Seriously and I say this in all earnest, get this game. If you’re a star wars fan that plays WoW alot you’ll end up switching your account funds to SWTOR. This was a great game and Thanks to Bioware for Inviting me and My friend Bruce on the opportunity to take part on this weekend only event.
