Some of the articles on SWTOR seem a bit naive. "Slain by the Sith" and "The Droid I was looking for" to name two. And let's not forget Pocke'ts video on the number one reason she is playing SW.......are you ready?.........The questing has been elevated to a new level by Bioware. Really?
Kill x of this and deliver this to that seems to have been around since the original EQ. And I question whether its really Star Wars honestly.
It may be based on Star Wars, but Star Wars was Luke and company. A light saber doth not a Star Wars make.
The game is what it is and all the hype and spin will never change the fact that it is a re-skinned (barely) KOTOR that allows up to 200 players to play a single player game in a single instance along side each other, occsionally banding together to run a flashpoint or operation.
For any progression minded players, it's very weak. For RP'ers, it's terrible. For explorer's it's non-exisitent. For PvPers it's, again, terrible. And for solo players, it's a good story once, maybe twice through.
You really don't "play" SWTOR, it "plays you" and you are basically just along fot the ride.
Where are the critical thinkers amoung the writers? Graphically average, except mayby the fire throught the grate in Hutt Ball, which looks worse then average, like the original Duke Nukem graphically. Questing is as lineiar as all the rest, and maybe wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't hyped as the next gen of questing. The choices you make have no impact, nothing changes but a few dark/light points.
Character customization? poor. With no housing or player cities, keeps, or the like, a player has to fall in love with their avitar. Gear them up, dress them up, show off the spoils of war. The standard players are use to are missing, like a wardrobe option. Even Blizz folded in this department. The companions are all the same. The game should have been called SW: The Clone Wars.
So now, with so many players already at 50, they are asking what do we do now? In the World of Warcraft Southpark episode when the gang power leveled up to kill the uber ganker, and did, they asked "Now what do we do?" The answer..."Now we play the game."
But ya gotta have some kind of game to play at that point, and SWTOR is lacking. I guess we can wait for "Time to take a second look at SWTOR".
Sorry, I call 'em like I see 'em.
