Star Wars The Old Republic: Galactic Starfighter

DarkStation
6 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Galactic Starfighter shows a lot of promise and there’s a great deal of potentially awesome additions outside of new maps and game mods (like dogfighting!). Treating the expansion as a proof of concept, I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing this version of space combat eventually replace the on-rails space missions or, at the very least, supplement them. I am really excited to see what the expansion will look like in a year.

Star Wars: The Old Republic - Rise of the Hutt Cartel Review

GameSpot
22 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The Old Republic's shaky transition from subscription-based powerhouse to free-to-play option had players new and old weighing whether or not continuing to play would be viable. After a celebrated beginning and a questionable semi-collapse, the game's community was now open to anyone with the desire to pick up a lightsaber, cash-powered or not. For many, that fact alone was worrisome.
  • Pros: Intriguing storylines for either Jedi or Sith characters, Romance options spice up NPC companionship, Expansive exploration across new and old locales, Some great missions for solo players and groups
  • Cons: Lack of NPC dialogue in cutscenes and gameplay, Five more levels won't last too long if you're maxed out, Quests on the way to objectives have been cut

Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Rise of the Hutt Cartel

IGN
21 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel is an enjoyable but brief expansion that introduces Star Wars: The Old Republic's biggest, most beautiful, and satisfyingly paced planet to date. A new operation and decent gadget-based side missions provide some variety for hardcore and casual players alike, and the Empire and Republic storylines prove that the shift to free-to-play has weakened little of its storytelling power.
  • Pros: Makeb is big and beautiful, Engaging stories, A well-designed operation
  • Cons: Tedious droid missions, Only 2 new stories

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Game Over Online
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Okay, right at the top, I need to run through a list of disclaimers. First and foremost, I’m not a fan of Massively Multiplayer Online games. The things that I value most in games, such as story, depth, characterization, streamlined interface…these are all concepts that fly in the face of your standard MMO. Because of this, I am simply not equipped to accurately judge things such as Player vs Player since, almost universally, that is an un-fun concept to me.

Building Your Legacy

GIN
13 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I finally started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic in an effort to review the new Legacies system that has been added to the RPG. The problem that I was having is that to access the Legacy system, you have to get at least one character all the way through their first chapter quest. And there is so much content that it takes a long time. I didn't unlock my Legacy abilities until I hit level 28.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Review

maximum pc
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: STAR WARS: The Old Republic (TOR) comes with a buffet of a story for an MMO, but you only get to fill your plate once. From decisions as significant as choosing your character’s class specialization to events as trivial as responding to key dialog options, everything you do has a lasting and permanent effect on your gameplay.
  • Pros: Wonderful single-player instancing; immersive scripting and voice-overs; strategic general combat.
  • Cons: Feels incomplete; missing modern MMO features; tough transportation flow; overly simple group co-op.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Review

GamerNode
27 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Since the MMO genre first emerged, I’ve always wanted to make the jump to hyperspace and explore the Star Wars universe. Star Wars Galaxies , a 2003 MMORPG starring the universe from the acclaimed sci-fi franchise, was a major disappointment that left me feeling as if one of my biggest gaming dreams would never come to fruition. Then, a few years ago, BioWare announced the development of Star Wars: The Old Republic .
  • Pros: Best storytelling in an MMO to date, Great voice acting, Star Wars universe brought splendidly to life, Fun and addictive PvP
  • Cons: Same old genre quest mechanics, Endgame world PvP a letdown, Rare but significant visual glitches

Review: Star Wars: The Old Republic

Everyday Gamers
12 March 2012
  • Summary: The Old Republic sets out to do something new, and I believe it succeeds with flying colors. Bringing more of the action genre to the MMO style works well, and I feel like this is a step forward for massive online gaming. I highly recommend the game if you’re willing to dish out the monthly fee, which is one of the major drawbacks. The Old Republic gets 4 of 5 stars.
