Was an OK MMO, but...
18 February 2014
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.
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: Unless you REALLY want the Darth Malgus statue, this box set is not worth it. The special Collector's store in the game is a joke, it only has a few items that noone wants. The security key is not necessary as there is a free smartphone app from them that does the same thing.
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.
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.
Summary: Well, having just dinged my first 50 character, I have to say it's quite obvious EA did a rush job to get the game out for holiday release. It's so buggy, yet in-game support is seldom seen, that several times just from leveling I'd fall into some random place, even huge holes that can't be escaped. EA added a /stuck command, but it damages your gear and frankly the point of MMO is to enter that state of mind where you forget you're playing a game..
