Same Great KOTOR (A LOT of glitches though)
1 September 2012
Summary: There are plenty of reviews about the gameplay and story of both KOTOR's so I will skip that and get right down to the software itself. The installs on both games were relatively simple, as one should expect. However, each game has its own unique glitch to them. In KOTOR 1, sometimes the game screen will randomly minimize and my desktop will appear without me even touching a button. It comes back up no problem, but some picky gamers may find this very annoying.
Summary: After an excellent start, the game starts to bog down in the same old grind that every other MMO seems plagued by. They have promised a lot of interesting content in the future so it is still worth keeping an eye out for, but for now give it a miss.
Summary: I see a lot of people reviewing the game here, which should be done on the game's product page i would think. As far as the game time card, it seems the price fluctuates on here quite a bit. I was going to buy a game time card from amazon, and a few days ago I was about to, but delayed for some reason. Well now I'm not because Amazon hiked the price up about $5. This game time card was at $24 for at least the past few weeks.
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.
SWTOR--can't stop playing! But I finally did, about April '13

Summary: Even though this review is supposed to be about this card (which worked fine BTW), one must mention the game itself: great fun till one runs up against a boss of some sort which seems to be unbeatable. It happens with every class; still the game itself is *extremely* addictive! UPDATE April 2013--the launcher for ver. 2+ refuses for download/upgrade, making it *extremely* easy to stop playing. Boo! for EA & BW.
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.
Summary: I played for a few weeks but cancelled my subscription. The game has many things that take away from the fun of playing: 1. Your armor and weapons all have upgrade slots. In addition to the base attributes for the equipment, you have to be CONSTANTLY on the lookout for upgrades. If you let it slide for a couple of levels, you start dieing all the time because your armor and weapons are outdated. And there is no easy way to tell.
Summary: Title says it all, If you seek any reviews outside of paid site reviewers or stop by the official forums you will see that this game leaves much to be desired... ....Like the basics, high resolution graphics that were advertised are not included, modifiable UI was not included, looking for group tool was not included, server population... not included...
Leveling is the only thing amazing about this game...

Summary: Ok this is my first review on here so i am sorry if it seems poor. I waited for this baby since the rumors of a KOTOR mmo from 2006, checked the forums everyday since the big Oct 2008 announcement and scourged the internet for leaks. I believe my time deserves sparing for a review in each of its categories. Before you read i will admit i was what they call a "fanboy" until now. Questing/leveling = 8/10: the best part of this game.
If you're willing to wait for content, it's an ok game

Summary: This game shipped well before it was ready for prime time (like many games do nowadays), and while the class quest storylines and voiceovers are mostly well done and interesting, outside of that, there's not much to really enjoy. The UI seriously needs work (they supposedly have a patch coming for this), and trying to interact with the Auction House (Global Trade Network) is almost painful with how they set it up.
