Summary: Very disappointing. I had high hopes for this game, really high hopes considering Bioware's history with Knights of the Old Republic, but the game was a major letdown and I feel cheated to have spent so much money on the collector's edition. The statue inside is decent, though not exactly high-quality, and given how surprisingly small Darth Malgus' role in the game is, it feels pointless.
Summary: I really had high hopes for this game, but it just didn't live up to the hype. The endgame content just wasn't there and it took a long time to level. Hut ball and the other pvp games are the best parts of it, but I moved on quickly.
Tried it.. Was fun, but overall it didn't keep me..

Summary: When this first came out, I tried it. It was fun for a few months, but after the newness wore off, I found myself wandering from it. Since I've left, they've come out with a free to play format, and to be honest, it probably needed to go to that in order to get more interest. It's not that it's a bad game, I just felt there was less freedom than what I wanted from my game.
Summary: ... because if you actually BUY the game then you'll need to purchase a subscription. I like the game, and was approaching the end of the trial (my characters were all approaching level 15). I decided to buy it, but after I put the game code in, I found that the launcher wouldn't let me in to the game. No subscription found," it said, and there was no way of getting one without putting down more money.
Summary: The LCD screen keys are in a very awkward place for gaming. Since most games use keys 1 through = for keyboard mappings, placing the gaming keys on the right side of the board removes tab targeting from being an option and crowds your hands together on the right side of your desk. Also there are only 10 of these keys and most MMOs (including the game it is built for) use 12 keys.
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: 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: I bought the pre-order collectors edition.. HUGE cube of excess materials only of interest to the hard core starwars GAME geek.. of which I removed the codes, I had already downloaded the game.. had a pretty weapon crystal , and a tiny roomba with an antenna to follow me while I still played. The user interface improved a lot since launch, althought it was a very slow grind.
