Good value for the money

Summary: It is a good game, not better then KOTOR 1 or 2, a lot of stuff from thees games was left out, right now it is still full with bugs, and missing a lot of things like a fast way to summon players and so on... i think i will be a better game in 2 years if it survives that long. But if u are a fan on the KOTOR series at least u will play the game for the class quests, witch are nice. it still has a long way to compare with older mmo's.
Summary: Starting out, one may think the game is amazing. However, as time goes on you start to realize all the problems that keep this game from greatness. First and foremost, the devs need to work on fixing the graphics lag. The game looks fantastic on higher settings, but I don't have a fantastic computer, so I played it on all low.
Summary: I got this SWTOR Razer mouse-mat and the SWTOR Razer mouse. After less than 5 months I can already see wear on the top left corner of the mat. It looks horrible like black mold but its actually the white background fading and the black base showing through. I consider the time I spend gaming as around an average gamer so I don't believe it is faded due to a lot of use. The mouse-mat was advertised as unslide-able but it slides plenty.
Summary: Not really a good time to start playing this game. Literally only one server with active players, Lots of things that should be in an MMO are not there, EX: LFG System, Dungeon Finder. PVP is not that fun. The story is pretty cool though and its fun to play through each one. But other than that, its a below average MMO right now. Wait until major Patches come out later this month to start playing, if at all.
Summary: This game had so much potential. It had one of the highest budgets of any video game in history, and a fan base that would have like it if it did anything different. But we get a wow clone. Now I say WoW clone because its just too easy, raids are easy, leveling is EXTREMELY slow but easy, theres no difficulty.
If you love starwars and a single player game go ahead otherwise STAY AWAY

Summary: This game has serious problems: Game engine doesnt perform good when more than a few players gather. There is no multiplayer feeling, feels like you are playing a single player game you are lucky if you more than 10 people during leveling. So if you like mmorpgs this isnot the game for you bad graphics, bad game engine, bad game mechanics and no mmorpg feel at all. However if you love Starwars and love single player games than this is the game for you.
Summary: I played as a bounty hunter all the way to level 50 and ran some of the end game flashpoints/hardmodes. I didn't really like how the game forced you to be one faction, why wouldn't a bounty hunter and a smuggler team up to earn some credits? Especially since this point in star wars is supposed to be a cold war, what gives? Speeders... comparably I could ride my bike faster, they are the most immersion breaking thing in the game.
