A friend of mine kept nagging me to jump in on this one. I've never liked an MMORPG, usually I don't even last past the tutorial before I quit out of sheer boredom. I didn't think Star Wars would be any different. He kept trying to convince me though, saying this one had more of a storyline to it, a better semi-single player campaign, that the lightsabers were cool and the production values so high, the animation and speech and cinematics would surely win me over.
I bought the game to shut him up, spent two hours with it and happily went back to Skyrim.
In my opinion (which doesn't count for much when it comes to MMORPGs), SWTOR is the same old game we've seen a million times over, only this time the swords are fluorescent instead of steel.
