*please dont take this post the wrong way. It isn't a troll post, and I'm not looking to get negative attention. I'm just stating my opinion on this game. The game is not horrible, but I am just posting this so some people that get this game will realize what they are getting into. If you enjoy the game thats awesome. I'm glad you are liking it.*
Anyways I have been playing SWTOR for 3 months and I played through the entire thing. I've done raids and everything. So I think I have a pretty good grasp of what I'm talking about here.
-Firstly the game is a WoW clone, bottom line. If you honestly cannot tell the difference between a clone and something that isnt ripped off then you either have never played WoW, either that or you need glasses. Yes I know MMO's all copy off each other, but they also brought something new to the table as well. For instance Rift. At least they brought something dynamic to the market. SWTOR dosnt bring anything dynamic at all. The only thing is voice overs and story.
-secondly the things good about this game are the story, the voice over work was "ok" but I've seen better in Biowares Previous titles like Dragon Age. Alot of the responces are copy and pasted so you will hear the same replys over and over again. I didn't like this because it shows that the development team couldn't of bothered to make a complete dialogue but instead copy and pasted it into multiple mquests throughout the game. The PvP in SWTOR is horrible because its all Instanced PVP. You can do world pvp but you dont get hardly anything for it. not as much as doing instanced pvp. Although I could be biased because I'm more of an open World PvPer. I hated Battleground in WoW because it ruined the whole point of world pvp.
-thirdy this is one of the easiest MMO's I have ever played. (No kidding) I could of done these raids with one arm tied behind my back, no joke. Right along with How easy wow is now. It's like they made this game for kids who couldnt even do 8th grade algerbra. The raids and operations are all tank and spank. It's the most boring and mundane Cra... I have played since wrath of the noob king. Even Rift raids are at least more challanging then this.
-and lastly After 3 months of wasting my time with this game. Ill say this SWTOR was a complete waste of my time. I wish I never played it. I played the game for 3 months because i wanted to have a good idea what the mechanics of the game were and what the game had to offer. I also didn't want a give an opinion on a MMO that I never raided or really knew about the game itself, Because I always see people playing games and basing their opinions on the first 20 or so levels of gameplay.. i didnt want to be one of those people. So now I can firmly make some valid judgments on SWTOR. I believe that this game should of been a single player game. Not a MMO. Whoever decided to have that space combat in the game should go back and learn how to make a MMO. I loved Bioware Games back in the day with baldur's Gate, baldur's Gate 2, neverwinter Nights. Dragon Age. All single player games mind you, but you could tell they were made very well with good writers, designers, artists, and great voice over work. But after the release of Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, and now SWTOR I think Bioware games are not as great as they used to be. I definitly wont be wasting my money on anymore bioware games anymore.
This will be the last themepark MMO I will ever play again. Im tired of playing the game same wow forumla over and over again with the same mechanics and them. I'm done with them. If i play anymore WoW formula game I think my brains going to melt
Hopefully Archeage will bring something to the table.
