4.0 out of 5 stars A long time ago, and all that... March 21, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Base Game
(Note: I'm reviewing this as a subscriber. The F2P experience is worlds different.)

TOR, as it is often called, is a good game. I know, I know, it's not perfect, and it's not everything BioWare led us to believe it would be. It often feels like a single player game with a multi-player lobby. PvP isn't the main focus of the game, it's Free-to-Play, it has a cash shop, and it didn't crush World of Warcraft beneath it's booted heel. But putting aside all the rabid fandom, on both sides, TOR is fun, getting more and more polished, and occasionally feels like a true Star Wars experience.

Cons first: It feels like a lobby. At max level, there's no real reason to leave the Fleet (main faction hub) ever. You can just queue up for PvP or PvE, quick travel and fight. For some people, that's great. For others, it feels small, it feels anti-epic. Part of the allure of Star Wars is watching that "Punch it, Chewie", star blurring Hyperdrive moment. If all you ever do is sit on your speeder in front of the auction area, click on a "ready" button, and suddenly appear in the midst of battle, something is lost. Something of that wonderful journey Han, Luke, Leia and friends all took.

Neutrals, undecided: Character creation. I'm very on the fence about this one. I get four body types, ranging from skinny child, average-but-muscular, BEEFCAKE, and fat-but-strong for dudes. Ladies get skinny child, Hollywood curvy, BEEFCAKE, and voluptuous. There's about twelve faces, very limited hair styles, and some variation in scars and stubble. I like, but don't love, the costume situation. Most good gear is "moddable", meaning you can rip the armoring stats out and put it into other armor.

As a veteran of Everquest 1 (2000 - 2003), Star Wars Galaxy (2004), Word of Warcraft 2004-2009, Aion, and a few others, the leveling is relaxed and doesn't depend too much on groups.

What I like best is that it has the best story line of all the games that I've played. Also, the game is free to download instead of paying $40 - 60 for a base game just to try it out. It's not worth the hassle of trying to be a free subscriber with the limitations and restrictions of being a free subscriber, so I opted to pay the $15 month fee after trying out the free version.

4.0 out of 5 stars My F2P Experience May 30, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Base Game
This game can be a lot of fun sometimes but it gets incredibly repetitive and is a grindfest on the level of Aion.

The grind doesn't really bother me too much but some of the map layouts make it a huge PITA. This is because many of them are cities and they are very heavily pathed. What this means is that you usually only have one way to get to your objective area which almost always consists of an endless (and confusing) series of twisting, turning and intersecting roads, alleys and corridors with little or no ability to free-roam or choose your approach.

Naturally, these areas are peppered with AI mobs, most of which are unavoidable which makes the long trek to and from your objective area that much more tedious. Sure, you'll want to fight some of these guys along the way but not all of them and certainly not just to fight the very same ones on your way back. Where this design really frustrates me is when you go thru all of this and hoof it all the way back to hand over some minor thing to an NPC who promptly sends you right back there to do whatever is required to complete the mission and then back to turn it in. You know how this works.

Regarding F2P specifically, it is VERY restrictive to the point that the model they have employed is intended to coerce you into subbing or at the very least spending real money at their cash shop, which I don't actually have a problem with doing. The problem is that they have made the game practically unplayable in "free-mode" because everything, and I mean everything is either restricted or denied to you entirely and I mean even the most basic things such as external storage.

Great game that is free to play with a subscription option. If you're tired of World of Warcraft or just want a futuristic MMO, try this out… you don't even have to be a huge Star Wars fan to get into it either. If you've played Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, or Dragon Age, you'll know Bioware is all about story options, and that's what sets this MMO apart from others… you can CHOOSE how your character plays through with different dialog selections that affect the game, even within a group of other players you all make the decisions and become more dark/light side. It's free2play but with a "Preferred Status" (for returning players or those who have spent money on it) and a "Subscription Status" (with all of the full benefits). If you're on the fence about jumping right in you might as well download the client for free, THEN see what the subscription bonuses are all about by using my friend referral link that grants you 7 days of subscription:

Enjoy and feel free to comment if you have any questions or need a guild to join once you're in the game! :)
