SWTOR Sucks? Methinks so - Page 6

post #51 of 133
I think for the most part people compare current MMOs to whatever MMO they started out on and liked the best. Like me. I mostly compare MMOs to EverQuest. Honestly though I thought SWTOR was kind of fresh (as fresh as is possible in an MMO anyway). I enjoyed what time I spent playing it. I thought the way they did the grouping/social/flashpoints was nice. As has already been stated of course developers are going to "borrow" certain things from other MMOs. Thats just the way it is. Its fine if you think it sucks. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I thought WoW sucked and thought EQ was 100 times better. I'm in the minority but w/e. Will I buy SWTOR? Maybe. When I was growing up Star Wars was out in the theaters and everyone was crazy over it. I never really got that into it but I did watch the movies and after playing SWTOR I think they did a lot of things right.

Until someone can innovate like CCP, and appeal to the masses like Blizzard, nothing will ever come close to WoW, except perhaps WoW2 or whatever this Titan project is.

Well aware of that, WoW was release before that happened.

I've been in perma beta for awhile now. I have a 50 JG and a few alts. Overall, I am already addicted to the game. Having been addicted to WoW since release, I think I needed a change of terrain more than anything. For me, this MMO delivers not only that but quite a lot of exceptional, interesting and plain out fantastic features/content. PVP is amazing also (aside from the HP scaling feature in BGs). As for the graphics, they look great to me; maybe it's your rig or possibly that you did not configure things properly. Aside from the lack of Dx11 support, I am thoroughly impressed with SW:TOR and can't wait to play on the 12/15/11 (pre- order early access).

That's all. If you guys like the game then that's great! Not everyone loves MMO's.

If MMOs are "not the game type for you" then honestly why did you expect something different? Seriously there is flawed logic here. MMOs don't operate the same as other game types, and if that is what you wanted then maybe you should wait for something like "KOTOR 3". KOTOR was not an MMO and was single player...

As for me, I played all weekend long... 4 straight days. I got up to level 24 on a character and I was able to see several planets and do a space battle. It was truly amazing to me. This game is on my "definitely will play" list right now as honestly I like MMOs. As far as the "look" of the game... it looked absolutely amazing to me. Granted as in beta, there are a few graphical flaws that will need to be addressed, but overall it was an amazing experience.

Oh well.. it was not your cup of tea. More room on the server for people who actually enjoy the MMO experience. I'm sure a lot of people are gonna like this one for what it is... not hate it for what it isn't.

A lot of people actually seem to think the game is TOO single-player oriented. haha So its interesting that you thought it wasn't. To me that makes it seem like there's a good balance. The story is your core single player experience, so that does exist.


I loved this game this weekend. The first couple of levels aren't too interesting, but I got drawn into the story and then the gameplay improved too. I got my highest level char to 16 (played like 5 different classes lol). I would have kept going except I didn't want to sink too much time into a character that would be deleted and wanted to save the story!

I also thought the graphics were good! Not the most amazing, but I didn't expect that. Coruscant looked really good I thought, as did the sith capital (can't remember the name lol) and the other places I visited. I imagine graphics will improve a little bit at launch (AA and all that), so it should be fine.

SWTOR isn't a BAD game, it's just that it's not a great game.

The only reason anyone likes it is because it's Star Wars, or they're blind Bioware fanboys. I'm neither, and I can compliment the ME style dialog system...and that's it.

Nothing else stood out, the game felt awkward as a smuggler. Everything else about the game during my time playing it was pretty ho-hum, and it's been grossly overhyped by Jedi wannabes.

Newsflash people, Bioware has fallen from grace. I can guarantee you if this game doesn't sell or drops off after a couple of months like the last few MMOs that have launched, Bioware will be dissolved.

It happened to Mythic, it happened to Pandemic, it'll happen to Bioware. I hope you're happy Zeschuk, your company is a joke now. I guess that's ok though, since if you get canned like Mark Jacobs did, you'll at least get to laugh all the way to the bank with all the riches you made when you made good games.
