Joe, agree with your review and scores whole-heartedly. I'm having a blast in this game and I've been playing since a week after the North American launch. I'd like to point out that I have yet to join a guild, group with anyone or speak to any other player beyond answering questions in game that new players may have. I know other folks may ask, "why are you playing an MMO???", but parents of young children who also have full time jobs will understand why I would play that way. So, yes I'm playing it like a single player game and still having a great time! Just remember, there isn't a pause button and find a safe spot before you go afk, which only takes a second, anyway. Also, my 6 yr old son absolutely loves to watch me play the game since he's into Star Wars now. We get into some pretty deep (for a 6 yo) debates over whether the KOTOR era or the Clone Wars era is better.

Just thought i'd share that this is a game that is: 1)Star Wars, 2)set in the KOTOR universe, 3)has great story lines for multiple characters and 4)has a ton of content and is good even without playing it like it is a multiplayer online game. Thanks for listening and don't shy away from this game even if you don't have alot of free time like me.

I also agree with the review and comments by weedrk. I am old enough to have seen Star Wars (A New Hope as it's now called) in the theater when it premiered. I also have been playing and beta testing MMO's since Star Wars Galaxies. Star Wars The Old Republic, does things in an MMO that I didn't believe was possible. I am not a member of a guild and I generally also play it like a single player game, although I do occasionally team up with other players and frequently do missions with my wife who also is loving the game.

One of the amazing things about the writing and execution of the game, is I actually feel like my character is making a difference in the universe. Any MMO I've ever played, they tell you "You are the one!" or some rubbish similar, but SWTOR actually makes me believe it.

i have been playing this game since Early Acsess from a leveling point of view its quite a specail game with a class unique questing system.Like all mmo's online they have problems just i sence Origin does not seem to care i have the same issues i had at level1. and i now have 4 level 50s. The annimations the whole looks of the game is brilliant. Absoloutley wonderful graphics in full custom high spec. But the down side the ''Raiding'' side of this game in my opinion is a let down. Simply just too easy. i have done all the instances ei: Eternity Vault on hardmode/Nightmare and there easy.Not much in team mechanics involved like you actualy do get when playing on world of warcraft. Which i have been playing over 5years and i am a proud player on wow been raiding hardcore the past 3years and have accomplished alot of server firsts with my teams. For a game you want to play for an amazing adventure into quests and a wonderful scene, Swtor is a good choice. But if your like me looking for serious challenges with team mechanics Raids, then swtor is not a good idea. and best make sure your machine has the minimum 4GB RAM. otherwise you may find this game laggs. As many of my friends encountered.I'll maybe return one day when they add some desent-Raiding content thats got some desent mechanics.Until then im content raiding 10heroic wow.
