SWTOR looks great. Its the things that are in it that feel mediocer. Animals dont fit in (the flying things in Jedi knight starting zone are example of the worst.) And the human mobs just feel lifeless in the world standing around way to much to be slaughtered.

The only thing I really dont like is the huge storage maps that are pretty much all the same and obviously just created to blast off some mobs for quests. Way to much of such areas and they are very lifeless.

@Deadalon

I like the views that Star Wars has and I have been having fun playing the game. Guards and camps usually do not move around much in real life, so not moving around in a game does not bother me. I would like to see more civilians in some of the city sectors as well as more movement from the animals. Now, the queues on my server are still annoying.

Well, the artists got screwed along with the players - because the game only has one graphics quality setting - Low.

And no anti-aliasing either. AA support is included in patch1.1, which was supposed to be deployed today - but it's been delayed until who knows when.

No. Stop trolling.

SWTOR just doesn't impress me much - don't see any reason to subscribe at the moment, which is a shame.

Why would I bother with a serious reply when everything you said was either false or taken out of context?

I'm not sure that word means what you think it does.

@Deadalon,

Yeah, I was excited for TOR even buying the concept art book / explorers guide, but I cannot bring myself to buy the game after seeing the videos on YouTube that depict a really static world with groups standing around doing nothing and canteenas that have about as much atmosphere and action as a morgue.

Because you go against my opinions on TOR and I love the game so much, I'm downrating you for speaking bad about my beloved!

I gotta say, I'm amazed some of you have time to play any MMO given the amount of time you spend bashing a game you don't play.

Obviously their mission telling people how much they don't like a game isn't complete yet.

Yes, how dare they criticize a game with their own opinions. We should downrate all of them for disagreeing with us.

@Sorithal Not critizing a game. Harping. Over and over, often not even about the subject at hand.
I get it. I hate so very many MMOs out there - probably some these guys love and play when they're not busy SWTOR-hating - but I have better things to do in my life than pop into every SWTOR thread and beat the dead horse.
Think I'm wrong? I'm going to pop up to the $500 million pricetag post, I'm willing to bet you, of the 26 comments I see there right now, roughly half will rehash the same tired crap we keep reading every single day.

Please, for the love of all that is holy, speak your piece and go get some peace. It's a little personal at this point, clearly.

Well, they have plenty of time to keep it up! Judging by the lack of comments on posts about any other mmo, they don't actually play one, they're just here to bash a few.

I didn't say I hadn't played it, I said I will not be buying it myself.
No need to get personal, I'm just calling it like I see it. You cannot deny the world is static, more than it should be. Bioware should do an atmosphere pass adding crowd density and purpose.
You cannot deny that every seated NPC is sitting blankly staring ahead, and every sporadically positioned triple NPC crowd consists of one doing explanatory hand movements, one shifting from foot to foot, and the last just standing there. It feels like you are adventuring in a world frozen in time.

@SiML Go ahead and play it anyway. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Downrated because you don't like the game I like. Derp.
