What I am most impressed with is the wide range of characters you can create. You can be a Jedi, Bounty hunter, Sith, etc. You can choose to be human or alien. The game allows you to add unique features to each character. I sat there for ten minutes trying to create my character’s hair! I don’t know why, I just wanted it to be right.
How you interact with others, and how you complete your quests, affects how good or evil you are. The way you play affects how close to the dark or light side you are. If you’re playing a Sith, you could play your character in a way that allows them to maybe be a little good. I really enjoy this element of the game. It gives you room to really create an awesome character and background story.
I have to admit that if you are new to the world of online gaming, as I am, it can be difficult to get started. The quests appear harder than the beginning quests in World Of Warcraft. I find myself constantly sitting there, trying to figure out where my quest is and what they want me to do. However, there seems to be no end to the quests, and you can go off in as many different directions as you want. I, myself, am sticking to completing the quest given to me by my Jedi Master. I know - I’m a bit boring that way.
AMAZING! So far I have been really impressed by the graphics. If feels like I am truly submersed in the Star Wars Universe. This may be a bit dorky, but I really feel like I am in a movie. Besides the awesome graphics, the background music really makes me feel a part of the game. It has elements of the classic Star Wars theme music, yet is just a bit different which makes it uniquely Old Republic. Please, create a soundtrack to this game. I would buy it!
Controlling my character is easy, although I am still trying to figuring out how to communicate with others (I want to know how to dance). I do have one complaint though; I wish the maps were easier to read. I am constantly getting lost, and I wish that there was a way I could pinpoint where my quest is. If there is a way please let me know.
Considering that I am still a newbie to online gaming, I hope that you will forgive this rather basic review of the game. What I really wanted to express to you was how AWESOME this game is and how much fun I am having playing it. I encourage every Star Wars fan to purchase Star Wars: The Old Republic you will not be disappointed. I will post another review when I have reached a higher level and when I figure out all this online gaming stuff. So until next time, maybe I’ll see online sometime and May The Force Be With You!
