  • Use the Force...only after countless play hours....

    Mar 1, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A dream come true for most Star Wars geek gamers...almost.
    Cons: Many glitches. If you want to be a Jedi...you must learn patience in R/T.

    Summary: I recall the day that SWG was released. My roommate, then working a third shift job, drove straight from work to EB, then fabricated a story to ensure that he could get his grubby mitts on a copy. He burst into the apartment doing a jig, happily ... read more

    Pros: Space, Star Wars
    Cons: Juvenile players, SOE, cliched missions

    Summary: I picked up SWG just after the now infamous NGE debacle (I won't go into this, too many other people have), and found myself engrossed in the seemingly 'alternate' Star Wars universe I was presented with. The graphics, whilst not up to the standard of ... read more

    Pros: Great animations and graphics very fluid since not many are online anymore
    Cons: Some people get very emotional on their game play or lack there of.

    Summary: I have been playing this game for about 3 years and have seen minute and dramatic changes in game play. In the old days Pre-CU (Before the Combat Upgrade), the profession of Jedi was virtually unattainable to anyone without a considerable investment in ... read more

    Pros: It's star wars
    Cons: no longer MMORPG style, horrible customer service, lots of bugs that are never resolved

    Summary: I've been playing this game almost since launch and it was a wonderful competitive, complex, fast-paced, character building, unique game from all other MMORPG style games in the industry. I, like many, am a big Star wars buff. The community was huge and ... read more

    Pros: Most likely will be dead by spring of 2006
    Cons: Most likely will be dead by spring of 2006, Sony ruined a great game!

    Summary: For those of you whom liked swg for it's original feel and gameplay wave good bye. The combat upgrade is nothing but a ripoff from games such as worlds of warcraft, Ever Quest2, and Guild wars. On top of that the devs rushed to push the revamp live and ... read more

    Pros: Nice Graphics. Content that keeps you engaged, so long as you do Combat stuff.
    Cons: AWOL Development Team (usually) Social professions need a lot of help Poor communication from Devs

    Summary: I've played this game for 6 months now. It's a lot of fun, and friends are what keep you coming back. The graphics are cool, and the options are endless. Sort of. The single greatest drawback? The development team for this game. They focus ... read more

    Cons: Some immature attitudes to take with a massive amount of salt.

    Summary: Oh the woes of PC Gamers! We complain about almost everything and anything in games, but none as much as the ones called MMORPGs. We don't get enough help, we don't get enough content and we don't have anyone listening to us when something goes ... read more

    Pros: it is Star Wars, it has some good quests
    Cons: way too much downtime and need of entertainers and medical centers

    Summary: I am a social gamer. I don't have tons of time to be playing on-line games even though I try to. I find it takes too long to level and there is too great a need for the reduction of battle fatigue and wound healing. In my opinion there are too many pro ... read more

    Pros: Great graphics, new take on professions and skills, ability to solo or team easily
    Cons: Single character servers (semi-plus, semi-con), can't be a Jedi without a LOT of grinding

    Summary: I have a confession to make. I am not a huge Star Wars fan. I enjoyed the movies, don't get me wrong, but it is not a religion nor a lifestyle for me. Thus, I will not have tons of Star Wars info to put into this review. In fact, when I first ... read more
