Star Wars: The Old Republic
18 February 2012
Excerpt: Like most gamers my age, I like a few predictable things. Energy drinks (though I'm trying to scale back -- honest), The Simpsons , and of course -- Star Wars . Hell, whenever anyone asks me about my political or religious affiliation, I always answer that I'm simply a Han Soloist.
Conclusion: So yes, I am quite happy with my experience with Star Wars: The Old Republic. In fact, I was more than a little irritated that I had to take time away from playing the game in order to write about the game.
Pros: Good graphics, great sound, fully voiced missions, strong focus on character story allows single-player RPG experience in an MMO environment, relatively solid launch, Star Wars and MMOG fans should be pleased;
Cons: Space missions could be better, crafting system needs more items for lower levels, galactic market interface needs some work, various bugs.
Conclusion: The Short Version: If you can't (or won't) connect your Xbox 360 to the internet, PopCap Hits Volume 1 finally gives you the opportunity to try out some of their fantastic casual titans. However, most consumers will be arguably better off downloading Peggle and Bejeweled 2 from Xbox Live.
Pros: Peggle is amazing, Bejeweled 2 is amazing, The other two games are also pretty good
Cons: AstroPop doesn't support 60Hz, Clunky bare-bones interface, Lazy XBLA ports with nothing to attract existing fans
