Those of you who know me have probably seen that I've been fairly critical of SWTOR since I played the beta weekend. I played Jedi Knight to level 10 and was kind of turned off by the experience.
But in thinking about it, I realize that maybe I just expected too much from the game. There is a lot of hype surrounding this game, it's developed by a major AAA developer, and it's no secret that tons of money and time went into it. I don't think I was really hyped for the game, I just expected it to be very high quality because of its developer cred.
So even though I knew the game was going to follow the WoW formula (which I dislike), I expected it to be an "awesome" example of a WoW formula game, but found it to be only "decent." This was a let down and basically caused me to view the game negatively.
But in retrospect, I think that if this wasn't a Bioware game with five bajillion dollars behind it, I probably would not have been nearly as critical, and may have enjoyed the game much more. Does anyone else feel the same? Do you feel like the hype that has been generated on this game raised your expectations too high?
Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?
