Space jam.

GameSpot
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Star Wars: The Old Republic has been an ever-changing chameleon since its inception, continually trading off features and mechanics with its jump to free-to-play powerhouse and subsequent release of the feature-rich Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion.
  • Pros: Wide range of customizable ship types for diversity, A whole new use for companion characters, Plentiful new lines of dialogue, Fluid and exciting space combat
  • Cons: Only two maps available for PVP, No new story objectives

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...

A new planet and engaging romantic opportunities are among the features that make Rise of the Hutt Cartel so inviting.

GameSpot
22 May 2013
  • Summary: 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...
  • 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 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...
  • 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

Expert Review

RPGFan
25 February 2012
  • 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.

The Force Is Strong Here

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,...

Star Wars: The Old Republic

GotNext
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

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...
