After a celebrated beginning and a questionable semi-collapse, the game's community was now open to anyone with the desire...

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.

  • Conclusion: It's not perfect, but it's still a wonderful achievement with all of the elements we've come to expect from a BioWare game in an MMO package.
  • Pros: Feels like Star Wars, single player RPG fans will transition easily, staggering amount of voice acting, lots of story to experience.
  • Cons: Graphics are already a bit dated, choppy sound, PvP needs work, gameplay can feel repetitive.
