I was in the beta so I pretty much already knew it is a failed attempt at mmog. What I didn't know tho, is that this game is so strong in fail that every second of gameplay is a wasted time. So here is my review (only bashing and flaming so you can skip to your reply if you actually like this game or pay for it):
1. It is incredibly boring. If you look at activities you spend on most of your time, then it looks like this:
1% - class story. Which is the most interesting part of this game actually.
9% - combat. Which is a very badly designed combat (more on this in point 3).
90% - running around the map and double-clicking to send your companions on a mission every 3 minutes.
2. It is so NOT innovative that my ass hurts. It looks like EVERYTHING was copied from WoW except lightsabers. The most pathetic is ofc the copy of WoW's year 2004 skill system. Which is so fkn stupid (copying it) that I am not even sure if the guy who came up with this idea is not just completly retarded. I mean.... WHY THIS ?! WHY goddamnit....?
3. Combat design is just lame. It is like a Justin Bieber of combat systems. It is mind-numbing. Repetitive, simple, and basically, it makes me feel like I need only 2 abilities all game long while other 30 abilities are just useless.
I had no idea that a game bound to succes could be fked up so much. With the StarWars franchise it is so simple to make a good mmo... It is like EA and BioWare tried their best to mess it up. They probably were thinking something like this: "WoW is already 5 years old, so if we make an exact copy of WoW, then everyone will stop playing it and come to SWTOR, we are going to be rich omg lol!!1111".
