Star Wars: The Old Republic Online Collector's Edition
Buy this even if you don't like star wars.
AWESOME. I love this game I wish I could buy it. Even if you don't like star wars try it because its a good experience and you will love star wars once you play it. :-)
Great Game: Similar to World Of Warcraft
After playing the game since day one of early access I can say that Star Wars: The Old Republic is a great game. It brings some new ideas into the MMORPG world but still uses mechanics and necessities used by all great MMORPG's. The immense story driven leveling process is really fun and keeps you interested. No more power leveling as a mindless drone, it's actually fun and entertaining to level up which is very rare to see in an MMORPG.
The End Game content was lacking at first but now there are quite a few things to do such as PvP warzones, World PvP, Flashpoints (SWTOR's version of a group dungeon) normal and hard mode, and two end game raids with 3 difficulty settings ranging in 3 tiers of gear that you can acquire.
You get your own ship and crew which allows you to bring one crew member, refereed to as companions, at a time with you at all times to help in your every day tasks and adventures. Everyone gets 5 companions all ranging the different role involved with MMORPG's such as Tank, Melee DPS, Ranged DPS, and Healer.
The game did launch with its fair share of bugs but a large majority have been fixed via patches (the case with all MMORPGs) and the game is really starting to shine.
If you love star wars and/or MMORPGs don't miss this game.
I love this game, the graphics are great.
This game is the best, the graphics are extrordinary and the game is just loads of fun. i would recomend it in a heart beat.
pest pc game of the year!!!
I pre-ordered this in late august and could not wait for it to come out. I have been playing since I got early access on december 13th and loved every second of it. I love how you can get light side and dark side points and the companions will help you not just sitting there like a rock. All the classes are so tempting to play and the graphics are great. Anyone who is a fan of Star Wars is going to love it and if you cant get the collectors edition get the standerd and I hope to see all of you in game!!
I've been playing for three days now and I love it. The storyline, the music, the graphics. I haven't had any trouble with login. Finally a SW game that is worth it!
Since KOTOR, there have been so few Star Wars games worthy of the franchise.( My Opinion ). Pre NGE SWG was amazing for its time, and many hours were burnt unlocking Jedi. This totally immersive, visually stunning, music / voiceover masterpiece is a grand slam for the Lucasarts franchise. WAY TO GO GEORGE, YOU DIDNT TURN THIS ONE INTO AN EPISODE 1.
the money is worth it if you see the trailer it comes with 30 new star wars game
Great Game But...
This game truly deserves a 10/10 however, due to my computer it only runs art around 6 or 7 fps. This game is really a great game and is a ton of fun. If anybody has any tips on how to increase my fps (other than a new computer) please let me know.
The game is awesome, but the statue was a letdown.
First off, I want to say that the game itself is amazing. I played in the beta and early access, and I'm still having a blast with it. So far I love most of the goodies that come with the collector's edition, but I was very disappointed with the Darth Malgus statue. When I first opened it, it fell a couple of inches out of the styrofoam and Malgus's lightsaber arm broke off. That's understandable, it fell. But then I tried to put the lightsaber blade on the lightsaber, and the top half of the lightsaber and his thumb practically slid off into to two separate pieces. Most of the damage should be fixable with glue, but it felt like the statue (or at least it's arm) was made of foam. I really expected more solid construction. Anyway, on to the rest of the stuff. The galaxy map is pretty cool, and is made out of the same paper as posters, which is nice if you want to use it as such. The soundtrack is good (I'm actually listening to it right now.). I love the Star Wars lore and history, especially the Old Republic era, so the Journal of Gnost-Dural is awesome. I also like having the game on disc, because it takes forever to download the whole thing on a new computer. The box itself is also a nice cube shape, so storage - aka, stacking it in my closet - is easy. The in-game mouse droid is kinda cool, but it sorta looks like one of those robotic vacuums. I haven't actually gotten to use the STAP speeder yet (not high enough level), but I've seen screenshots, and it looks awesome. The rest of the stuff from the Digital Deluxe edition (Holodancer, training droid, flare gun, and I think there was something else) are pretty much in-game toys, but are fun to mess around with if you're bored or wanna show off that you have the Collector's Edition. The Collector's edition vendor sells (for Republic characters) the Republic Officer gearset (orange quality, lots of mod slots), a Hutt tracking probe, and extra customizations for Corso Riggs (smuggler companion) and T7 (Jedi Knight companion). Customizations are kinda useless for me though, because I play a Jedi Sage (Consular, for you people who haven't played yet.). The game itself is easy to get into, and is easy to learn, especially if you've played World of Warcraft (I have for two years). Questing as a group is fun, particularly because then you can do all of the heroic quests scattered around. I can't say what Flashpoints (Dungeons, for you WoW players) or Operations (Raids) are like, as I haven't done any high level PVE stuff yet. I also don't do PVP, so I can't comment on what that's like in SWTOR either. But from what I hear, both are very good, so don't let that the last couple sentences stop you. In fact, everything I've seen so far is excellent, and I would highly recommend this game to anyone who likes MMOs, Star Wars, or Knights of the Old Republic.
I am hoping...
Pre-ordered this 9/14/2011...got my early game access which I've been using for 7 days...amazing. Lv. 26 Oprerative...status was "open" until yesterday, it's now showing "closed",however; I've received no additional information. I chose USA overnight, additionally I've yet to see the debit to my credit card. A bit confused on what's happening, but hoping for the best. Gamestop's 1 stop shop central number has been "high caller volume and is unable to provide phone assistance at this time #endphonecall. Hoping for the best, wish I had an update so I know if I need to run to my local Gamestop and purchase it...or what...C'mon Gamestop...! I use to shop here when they were Electronic Botiuqe. : )
