That could be a "perked" up Trooper. Is it me or does it seem there are almost direct opposites? Jedi / Sith, Trooper / Bounty Hunter, Counsular / Inquisitor , and Smuggler / Imperial Agent. One would think Trooper / Imperial Agent but after playing beta it doesn't work out that way.

I'm not impressed at all, to be honest. The character models are bland, the animations are not very smooth, and everything just looks rahter dated and dull, not like a hyped up AAA game releasing in 2011.

I'm not really a fan of the SW franchise though (I used to be, in the 80s, but the I-III movies really ruined it for me). I guess if you like the whole setting it could be a game worth playing. Some people might even "salivate" over it, but I won't comment further on what kind of fanboism required for that particular body reaction...

Anyway, given the available info about SWTOR's standard, non-innovative themepark design and the not very interesting-looking trailers, I'll certainly pass on this one.

I'm excited for the game, but I've got to agree that the character models are pretty bland. In a universe that has such a wide variety of awesome races it's quite disappointing that they've mostly limited players to humans and races that just look like humans with different skin tones.

Yeah, isn't it awesome that people are entitled to an opinion without having to be an obvious fanbot like yourself?

Great that you enjoy the game, others don't, and won't. Live with it.

Not too bad, but DEFINITELY an improvement over last couple months.

Overall, I think I will like it if it plays this way. I'm not expecting perfection in gameplay, just a great story, questing and lore with okay gameplay.

If TOR can do that, consider me a happy customer. Immerse me!

I'm cancelling my pre-order if they don't bother to let me in beta. Been waiting on this game since kotaku leaked its existence

Since when did just waiting for a game entitle you to get into the beta for it?

I'll be doing the same. Not because I've been waiting forever but because I haven't been terribly impressed and I'm not willing to gamble on it. Hopefully I'll get to try it and decide pre-launch.

I don't know if anyone else caught the typo at the end of the trailer, but it should have said "Your saga begins whenever Guild Wars 2 is released." Better fix that, Bioware.

Nice to get a look at the actual in-game graphics. Gotta agree with Space Cobra that the trooper's face could have looked a lot better. But I'm more interested in game play than something looking pretty. Graphics have never stopped me from (still) enjoying the original Legend of Zelda and other classic games.
