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

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.

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

The Force Is Strong Here

GIN
26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: When I first started playing Star Wars 'The Old Republic' (SWTOR) I was amazed at the level of detail in the first opening scenes and training mission. I was, however, wary as many times before in MMORPG's there's an exciting intro, showing you as a heroic warrior/wizard/spaceman/alien kill-bot, before rudely dumping you into the big world, demoting you to junior pest control and demanding an arbitrary amount of rat tails in exchange for experience.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

21 January 2012
  • Excerpt: When Star Wars: The Old Republic was announced as a massively multiplayer online game, there were many people who were disappointed, fearing that the previously single-player Knights of the Old Republic ( KOTOR ) series would lose its role-playing focus in order to accommodate genre conventions.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Digital Chumps
18 January 2012
  • Conclusion: After playing SWTOR for, well longer than I am willing to admit, I was really impressed with the quality and play style that SWTOR brings to the MMORPG market. The feel of the game, along with the content and canon of being Star Wars will, be able to appeal to many people, not just the hardcore MMO gamers. That being said, SWTOR focuses on role-playing gameplay, rather than the massively multi-player one.
