(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.

First, a bit of disclosure - I tested this game during Beta, stopped thereafter, and then recently rejoined. I've tested/played about 3 dozen MMOs over the years, but this opinion is based off my gameplay.

Without going into details about the past, when SWTOR was first released it had some major flaws and issues. Most of these were brought up by numerous beta testers, but the game was released despite these flaws and then fixed over time. Unfortunately, this appears to be a common trend these days, as big game houses release the game on schedule, regardless of issues, to start recouping the cost of these huge ventures.

When first released, this game was a Pay-to-Play (P2P) game, which required a monthly subscription fee to access (much like World of Warcraft and other online MMO powerhouses). This model quickly shifted to Free-to-Play (F2P), as many subscribers left due to the glaring issues in the game, even those already known during the beta process. The F2P model, which allows players to play most of the game for free, pay for little items they want, or subscribe (~$15/month) for full access to all content, has kept this game alive and even allowed it to flourish (at least the community - I cannot speak to the profitability of Bioware).

I started this game again recently, prior to the latest expansion release (Revan) and thoroughly enjoyed the new model and in-game fixes. You can choose from 4 classes over two factions (Republic or Imperial) and each class has two sub-classes with 3 specialties within each subclass. The choices are varied and you can design the perfect character for your play style. There are US and EU servers AND both sides have PVP, PVE, and RP servers to choose from. Pick where you want to be and give it a shot.

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:

As MMO's go, this one is more repetitive and boring than most. You will perform an extremely large number of routine tasks where you have to go to a location, perform a task, and return. There you go. Do that over and over and over until you reach the level cap and can then begin to play missions with other online players. The missions are always WAY too far away and take a LONG time to reach. You will simply fly and watch loading screens for five minutes to get to the planet where the mission will take place. Then you have to ride you personal speeder or vehicle/animal, whatever, to get to the location on the planet. Another five minutes... They are too far away. It is mildly interesting and entertaining to nug through the missions to reach the level cap. Then the game's real issue begins.
The online cooperative missions are fun, however, the other players of this game are not decent human beings. They are A-HOLES! Yes, I am over-generalizing. However, when you make a group of players in an MMO you normally have some people that will help you out and teach you the ropes. This game does not. I am an experienced MMO player with years invested in WOW and DCUO. Those games have players that will help. This game has people that simply make fun of you the entire time and then boot you from the group before you receive your treasure.
Don't play this game, the other players are the worst of any MMO on the market. Go play DCUO or WOW to play with decent human beings.
