This is looking good. It looks more RPG than MMO.

Last I saw of this made it look really lame and made me lose interest. This actually looks like it could be quite addicting .

Considering mass effect is due sometime end of 2011 I would not expect them to launch at the same time so if ME3 launches November/December I would say August release not out of the question. If ME3 launches in February/March I would say closer to November.

Or with how smooth it looked they may surprise everyone with a July or sooner ship date but I doubt that. I think between November and January is a better window.

On the graphics: I don't think they are terrible. Obviously they need to appeal to a broader audience which is fine. There is probably a more refined texture package for those with appropriate machines but it is on par with most other games, especially from Bioware. Mass Effect 2 graphics and textures at the best you could probably put your money on. Which again is fine.

Plus anyone who has ever worked in software development and previewed something that uses a GUI knows that you start rudimentary and optimize for better as you go. They probably got the smoothest game play with the least crashes at those settings and they have clearly stated they are in the "polishing and balancing" stages so it can only get better.

Looks like it is shaping up to be a buyer at least. Good or not, we shall see.

Yeah but WoW was also released 6-7 years ago... There is no excuse for a game 7 years newer than WoW having graphics only marginally better than WoW.

I agree with other people that I am getting less and less excited for this game. My original excitement level was sky high. I couldn't wait to see shots of gameplay. Everything I have seen has made me less and less excited. At this point I'm worried that I won't even be interested enough to buy it.

I just figured it out... This game is targgetted to all the kids that liked the CLone Wars CG TV show. 8-16 is the age this is going for. Sigh... I'm 25, that must be why this game just hasn't struck a chord with me.

MMOs with high-end graphics seem to always fail. WoW does well partially because it doesn't require a high end system to run well. WoW does not use the same textures and graphical features it had when it launched. With each expansion, higher rez textures were used and different features where added. Like it or not, WoW is the benchmark for MMOs.

For an MMO, the graphics in this ToR video are on-par or better than current WoW graphics.

I am not turned off at all by this video.

Plus, think about just how many people will want this game on their laptops...

At least have it look decent on a laptop with lowish settings.

i like what im seeing so far...it looks interesting and as for the people they get to play anything the videos i have seen...they look bad...now to the people taht are bashing the game already...

i would like to point out that the graphics in this game shouldnt be a big deal.....WOW's graphics arent that impressive and im sure the reason they keep it low is so you dont have to go out and buy a super computer in order to play it. Think about it, wow is good at this becuase any computer can run it, even build in Intel graphics crap can run wow steady and solid, so it only makes sense that the Star Wars crew would keep it simple. The graphics are slightly better then WOW, but since when has an MMO needed good graphics to be successful or good? i would like to point out how everquest is still a huge game, and its graphics are getting close to 20 years old if im not mistaken......game play...

If you try to make an MMO with amazing graphics your going to cut your audience....some 15 year old kid who has a 4 year old computer, might not be able to play Crysis 2...but can play this and wow and others. so please...stop complaining about the graphics.....WOW isnt even that impressive and its cartoony colors are anything but "amazing"....

the game play...its early yet. it looks good so far, but a few of you are jumping ship early...WOW in its beta stages back in the day was garbage.....it was just as choppy, laggy and similar....but now its the biggest MMO.....so why not give it time? lets wait and see....they havent released everything about the game and yet people are assuming they know what they are talking about...

am i saying its going to destroy wow? Not at all.....am i saying that i think this game is perfect? no it needs to be polished like any good game does....am i saying that i understand what goes into program and making a game like this? def not.....but some of the people of these forums are ridiculous....they think they know everything becuase they read reviews or watch videos....calm down and give it time....

/rant

and im excited for this, and i cant wait. im going to give it a try, im a big star wars nerd and love it...i miss old school galaxies....sorry but it was good at one point...and i hope this brings me back to how galaxies was.....and from what i see it looks like its going to be a much much better game...excited

Graphics look great, I'm enjoying the art direction. It's simple but unique, like WoW. I'm sure with the graphic settings on max the game will look even better.

The graphics are similar to WoW, and WoW has an enormous college aged and age 30+ player base. Try again!
