@Vortextk: I'll admit I'm going to be sad when there are absolutely no camera changes at all during play.

yup, that's an mmo alright

The true irony of this game is that its unimaginative conservatism of design flies in the face of Lucas' refusal to stop raping his film franchise with unnecessary changes.

I want to believe this will turn out to be good. I really do.

But that trailer made the game somehow look worse than the KOTOR games. Argh.

Animation is so stiff

Such a bummer this isn't coming to Mac, too...

I hope this game gets my MMOTOR running.

Here is some actual footage. Personally it looks clunky and shitty to me, but until I play the game it's hard to tell.

@Kanji: I've been in a beta weekend, and it is neither clunky nor shitty. I had a complete aversion to playing this game prior to getting in the beta. Then I couldn't be more excited to play it. Hopefully you get in the next beta weekend and have the same experience

I really fail to see how this game looks terrible graphically.


Jeff would complain those ground textures look like ass.

Nothing makes you feel more like an evil Sith badass than cartoony bloodless violence.

I have the sudden urge to do another live stream of this game, to show people how it actually plays.

That first music piece is rad. I doubt they got John Williams, but it definitely sounds like new Star Wars music. I hope there's a ton of it in the game and not just recycled stuff.

I'll play when it goes F2P, so next year'ish.

The Imperial Agent is the first class I am going to make. I don't know whether to use a Chiss or a human for the race though.

Posted by dagas

I was already going to play Imperial Agent, now I'm sure =)

If I was in beta and clicked "accept" if I review the game am I breaking an embargo? I always wanted to be a rebel and break and embargo.

Jeff was right. One-hit-KO headshots are ruining games! That Jedi died with just a press of a button! Bioware's propagating this madness!

Occupy Bioware.

I too have been in one of those weekends and I played the living shit out of it. Initially, I was curious but apprehensive. After the weekend, I felt that the game was wow re-skinned.

You get 'story' with every new quest but those sequences rarely play into the zones you venture into if they aren't class missions. Thus, you get bits of story at the beginning and the end of a quest but everything in-between is exactly the kind of mmo gameplay wow has done for years and years. The thing that really made the story stuff fall flat was that I'd gather up a bunch of quests from one location, do them all, and turn them in at the same time, by the time I had to turn everything in, nary did I remember whose kitten I saved for who, eventually I stopped trying to remember why I was doing a quest in the first place. It all just became *Retrieve/Fix this thing* and *Kill X/50 duders.* 20/50 levels in and I was bored to tears. I'll give the game one thing, the worlds look pretty cool albeit very closed off.

I couldn't try rerolling either because almost all of the quests are shared with the other classes of your faction so once you go through it once, you've seen most of the game. Sadly, I suppose that is what most former wow players want but it really isn't good enough for me as I am 100% burnt out on that style of mmo and would like a tiny bit of innovation in my gameplay.

ugh, good to see its still an MMO, where the combat looks fucking retarded and the animation is from two console generations ago. There's too many quality games out there to waste time on MMOs.

It does look like ass, but if you look at it with MMO-tinted glasses it looks fine.

Star Trek Online has ground combat controls that play like a third person shooter

Apparently you played a different version of STO than the rest of us. STO's ground combat looked about on par with this, assuming this has a dodge move.

I give this review five stars.

Looks kinda boring, i mean sniper in a hot-key mmo? what?... we will see.

It sounds like SW but it doesn't look like SW at all.

I'd probably be interested if they didn't make it all cute and cartoony. I blame Blizzard and WoW and I'm sick of that kind of art style.

Praise The Sun! Dark Souls is here to save us from those Happiness-in-your-face-art styles.

It would be awesome to see an MMO set in the Dark Souls universe with that same gothic fantasy art style. Also if it could use that action RPG combat system that would be cool. Alas, it will probably never happen so I'll just go back to enjoying Dark Souls. Praise the Sun! Fatty ahead...

I can't muster a second's worth of interest for this game. It looks like everything i don't like about both Star Wars AND MMOs. Just have Sledgehammer make Republic Commando 2 already, stupid Lucasjerks.

Posted by Maurdakar

The draw for an MMO is the people you play with. An MMO game is just the centerpiece at the table. I will be the last one to say an MMO is up to the same standard of art as a regular game, it exists in its own category. Its not above criticism at all but people judge these game we MMO players love, without considering the real reason we love them. People.

I don't know if you guys have seen the skill videos for Guild Wars 2, but this just looks silly in comparison. Run, stop, skill, repeat, LAME! I played this game at PAX and it sucks.

Posted by welshguy

Really, really wanted this game about two years ago. Now... every single time one of these class progression videos, or a special feature trailer, or some other crap is released I just more and more despondent. I've decided against getting it because it doesn't look like star wars, the overall story is nothing interesting, the classes look awful (the agent creates force-fields to hide behind and snipe? really?) Just about every feature I thought was brilliant has turned out the opposite (the ships, goody we have no choice in that, a seemingly limited freedom of choice within the classes themselves.... argh, the list goes on and on and on) I know they say this is what, kotor 3 through to 9 or something silly, but am i alone in thinking that a nice single player kotor 3 would have been brilliant?

Technically you're breaking an NDA.  You can only mention things that have been revealed elsewhere (IGN).
Posted by freakin9

I got into the beta, it's really just WoW in a star wars universe. Though the way they try to get cinematic with the dialogue is probably the most interesting part. Though I think I'm past the point of caring about random people in a star wars universe. It's too bad the game isn't like the cool cgi cutscenes, the intro is badass, but is almost completely irrelevant to the actual gameplay, and even your personal storyline.
