    Great game, if you like the series...

    You are getting a nice looking game, with a history quest straight to max lvl. Playerbase is high, and pvp is good.

    But, there is a lot of free mmorpg better than this one, with higher playerbase, and less restrictions to free users, so, I only recommend to play this game if you are fan of the SW universe...

    Play it for the Story and not the Gameplay

    A terrible f2p model with too many restrictions and locks that can only be unlocked with a subscription.Gameplay wise its a WoW-clone with a Star Wars paint-job which isn't necessarily bad but it is overdone.The graphics are pretty good for its age and its playable on lower end PCs.The community is nice and helpful and overall not childish! Each class has a fully voiced storyline that fans of the franchise will enjoy. Overall you can play it f2p without paying a single $ if you're looking for the KotOR 3 that we never got!

    Poor Mans review

    Graphics are the standard for todays MMO game nothing special.

    Gameplay is a standard point and click mmo with a Starwars Suit.
    The most interesting and very ( only) good part is the storys in the game each class has it own with fully voiced characters and a (depending on class) good plot with romance and or death. With the games Good or Evil rep. system being used for more than just show. And that is the good part now for the other stuff (only if you are not a Sub) , the game has a big lock on everything in it from you cash limit and you can't lift it with out a sub. to content and more. While it is rich in stuff to do and see you can only do it 25% of the way with out a SUB. and that is why the call it Free to Try with no time limit.
    Community is comprised of SUBs mostly , and you will feel the line thickening the more you progress.

    At the end if you want to play it for a longer time you will need a Sub.

    Bad

    It's just bad. The hype is for nothing . The gameplay is stiff and numb . The combat system sucks . I honestly don't have much to say for this game . I'm a big star wars fan but man this disappointed me .
    At the beginning i spent 10 minutes trying to find out where i should go ( that might've been just because of me but usually i have good cordination ) .
    And you go into battle vs monsters with a training sabre(that looks like a baton) ?
    I don't recommend it at all.

    World of Star Wars-craft

    It is a pretty good mmorpg within the Star Wars universe. Interesting stories and multiple choices just make it better. One of my favourite mmorpgs of all time.

    A quality online game on the universe of star wars!

    Advantages:
    Beautiful graphics,excellent gameplay,the ability to play for free.
    Disadvantages:
    It is not revealed.
    Star Wars: The Old Republic ambitious project from BioWare. This is a MMORG with a full set of Goodies typical of this genre in the vast universe of Star Wars is a real gift for the fan of STAR WARS. Fight, travel, study in great detail the created worlds. Very pleased with the opportunity to download the game and play it for free, well then of course many of the features of the game will be available, but nevertheless, on the free version, you can appreciate this creation.
    So, rehema on the website, downloaded, installed. The game can be played as different characters. You can become a Jedi, stormtrooper, bounty hunter, etc... And you can play as the light side and the dark. Here you will have to travel to numerous planets, go through many different quests as on camera and third-party. Will be able to participate in space battles in single player and PvP modes. Hero skills(in the free version you can pass the game three heroes), trade, spectacular fights and all this against the background of beautiful scenery of the vast universe of Star Wars. Since the game's release it's been four years and at many locations there is no such dense population, as in the beginning, many have passed their story and started to play a new addition, which is still paid.
    But I think soon will also be free.But in General, if you are a fan of Star Wars, then welcome to the world of which you dreamed.

    Its a must try for huge Star Wars fans

    If you love Star Wars then you should try this game. Its an mmo rpg with few classes each having a diffrent storyline (i suggest trying them all) in which you get to make the decisions (like in Mass Effect). Each class has a diffrent playstyle and weapons. You can play on both dark and light side with each side having same classes, but diffrent companions. Both sides have diffrent companions (if you dont mind small spoilers then go check them on the website).
    The game does have content for real cash so its not fully free.
    Its worth a try if you can stand trying out each class while searching for your style.

    As a Star Wars fan, it sucked.

    As someone who loved the Star Wars universe I just had to try the MMORPG version. By today's standards of MMOs this game has not aged well. Combat is the odd fashion way and you never feel excited when engaging the enemy. This game uses a bad way of the Free to Play model as leveling to lvl 20 you will receive less experience points from the premium player or be forced to use exp boosters to fix the issue (The Game actually tells you this.) I do like how some call SWTOR a freemium game as it is very fitting of the title, for a game that has lost all hype and was originally a subscription based game that had to switch to a free to play model, the only attraction this game has is StarWars and as a fan of the series I felt disappointed as it was just a poor mmo game with the StarWars universe as its only grace.

    Best story mmo made ever.

    SWTOR has such a great story! When I started playing it with beta and then after launch I knew I found my new mmo home for years to come. And I was right... for the time being. Story is so good levelling alts is probably the most exciting part of the game. There is no other mmo where you'd enjoy making 8th alt with a smile on your face until you hit max level. Usually it's the opposite. Unfortunately apart from the story the rest is our normal mmo experience with such a bad f2p model than you can forget about it and just subscribe. Cash shop is awful - rng goodie packs will make you hate this game quickly so I'd avoid even looking into there. Housing system is poor. Fortunately dungeons (flashpoints) and raids (operations) are nicely done so your max level experience will be enjoyable to some extent.

    OMG EA how could you!?

    Serious time folks this game has potential and quite frankly I doubt I'll ever go back to it. it could have changed since the last time I played it again when it went free to play (I bought it at launch like a schmuck) but It would have to be an extreme change, The story was boring and the classes were kind of meh.

    I had chosen to play as a sith so you could imagine I would have fun well I did right up until the on the rails shooter abomination of space combat, and that is where i left the game the first time. the second time when I came back I didn't even last an hour after discovering they not only monetised the inventory, but the amount of hotbars you could use. quite frankly right there and then I uninstalled the game in disgust.

    Perfect <3

    This game has several great stories for you to play through and several different ways to do it as well. I've played this game for three years now going on my fourth year and I've loved every minute of it. You get to explore some of the planets you've heard of and some you haven't in your quest to achieve your characters goals. The companion system is great and easy to use. There's space battle, pvp, flash points all kinds of stuff to do. The environments are beautiful with each planet having something different to it from snow and ice to a steamy jungle. I grew up with star wars and I am proud to be able to play at least a part of that time. If you are a star wars fan and enjoy good stories this is a game you should check out.

    Excellent story-telling

    SWTOR (Star Wars The Old Republic) is also a cool free-to-play game. It features excellent story-telling from developer Bioware and events, which will keep you playing the game for a long time. Even after 5 years, they still manage to keep things interesting by releasing new content for the game. That alone deserves applause. The galactic battles with spaceships are incredible. You can do a 360 spin and dodge enemy fire.The pvp is well thought out with various maps, including objectives like capturing points and throwing huttballs - it is like capture the flag,but here you can actually toss it to your friend so that he can help your team better succeed. And the most thrilling part for me was when I was in the middle of a map, shared between factions.I was doing my usual quests when people suddenly sprung up and attacked me. It was shocking and kind of scary at first, but then it got a whole lot better, because my guild was always there to back me up :D

    What are you playing there? KOTOR 3? Nope this is MMO!

    Graphic looks are on older side, character creation is like from WoW in 2004 but with higher resolution textures, but not so much. Gameplay is Tab targeting system, classes are 4 on each side, there are minor differences in them. from each class you have 2 archetypes. The game is very similar to old WoW. Huge and epic story update, but only for those that are "premium". This game is only free to try, any real gameplay is hidden behind paywall. If you want great story then play on Empire side. If you want to be enclosed by indecisive bunch of NPCs then play on Republic side. Community wise this game is OK but it's more of single player game than MMO.

    Lots of Restrictions But Still Really Fun

    So I only started playing SWTOR a few weeks back and I am still a F2P player, there are many restrictions which stop you from enjoying the game to its fullest. However I still find it fun and quite enjoyable, the only problem being that unless you subscribe you are constantly restricted from dong many things. However the graphics of SWTOR itself are really good and the story is really well done though it starts slacking off getting closer to endgame which does not help with its Gameplay. It is still a Great Game to play and would recommend it to anyone who is willing to spend hours playing through the storyline of each class as well as spending a bit of money as to not have so many restrictions.

    Star Wars meets Mass Effect

    Bioware choose to mix Star Wars with the story-lines where you are able to get your own choices in a full role-play mode, with companions and all. This game is the free to play version of what was once under the subscrition model, this explains the difference between someone playing because you'll get a limited amount of money or dungeons to run each week.
    BUT, you'll get a lot of gameplay thanks to the questing and the story that will keep you playing it, in a world full of blasters and lightsabers.
    If you like lightsabers, or better, if you like Star Wars with housing, raids, dungeons and big stories different between each classes this is the game for you.
    And maybe at the end you'll spend some money to keep on playing for the end game, which is always good!

    This is just too addictive

    I love this game. Excellent voice acting, great story for all classes republic and empire and the combat is really fun especially those lightsaber battles. I have been playing this non stop and I cannot get enough. And since launch I have been a subscriber not because I get the nice bonuses but because I feel like the game is totally worth it. I really hope the game stays online for a LONG LONG time!

    Want to be a jedi, this is the game for you

    Ok if you came here looking for reviews about it's free to playness, let me get this out of the way now. Yes star wars TOR is free to play, you can play most of the game without paying a cent, will it be a fun experience... Well Probably not, unless you're a subscriber the game limits you in a lot of ways, Including travel speed. Pay the pretty cheap subscription fee and you're laughing however. It gives you access to movement increasing abilities, ups the amount of xp you get, allows you to have more than 2 characters active... plus you get an amount of their in game currency to spend on their store. Yeah some people lose interest at the idea of "Pay to win" and yes this game does fit squarely into that box, but if you want to play a jedi, go through awesome story missions, visit iconic planets in your own ship and look awesome doing it, you won't mind the small sub fee and you'll have a blast.. Or is that you'll have fun dodging a blaster bolt, either way you look at it it's win win from my perspective.

    I love this game but don't play it

    I love SWTOR, I really do. I still play it. However, I can't recommend anyone to play it no matter how much I love it. The F2P model is just horrible, barely enough skill slots, a limit to how many credits you can have, NO TRADING, less rewards, after 3 dungeon runs you can't roll for the final reward, can't equip certain gear including endgame gear. Almost everything about this game is great. Gameplay is fun even if it is tab targeting, storyline for each class is good with good voice acting, dungeons are fun to play, Pvp is fun but can be the worst experience of your life, worlds are varied with their own planet storyline and incentive to play other classes if you beat other classes storyline. If it wasn't for the F2P model, I'd recommend it but I can't. It's F2P model just turns people off way too much and is why this game has a dwindling playbase. It's just not worth your time. It needs to change if it wants to keep going.

    Use the Force Luke!

    Imho this game is not one for the hardcore star wars fans. It is extremely different from the usual games you get when talking about star was (republic commandos, battlefront, jedi academy, etc). The reason for this being that it is an online rpg game, and the gameplay mechanics (auto-aim blasters? seriously?) are shaky to say the least. To better understand what I'm trying to say I'd suggest that you go watch some YouTube gameplay videos of this game. It will be gold for some but trash for others so go judge it for yourself! Personally I did not find the game enjoyable especially with its microtransaction policies that were required to make the game interesting rather than a slow march to level up. Still, be your own judge. Cheers!

    One word Amazing

    Best customer service I have seen in a free to play game to this day. Best story lines ever done for a f2p game, absolutely there is no pay2win in this game. Only thing in cash shop is the cosmetics and consumables items. Non stop updates and patches.
    One of the draw backs in the game is the PvP but they are going to show some love to the PvP community with this upcoming patch.
    In my opinion it's the best mmorpg and the only one I play. Graphics may not be the best but its been out for few years. Definitely give it a try you won't be disappointed,

    Could be better if not for the Fremiun model

    Is an Star Wars MMO... GREAT!? Unless they recently change it, the last time i played. If you do not pay, you will be limited in a hard way, missions, mail, RUNNING. A Freemiun, so you can play for free, but just like a unlimited DEMO. I love star wars, and more the Old Republic, but i will not pay and help that False F2P Model.

    If is different now, and like a GOOD F2P there is no difference between Players that paid and players that don´t. Tell me and i will comeback. Even when is just a Point and Click MMO.

    Good Game

    The community and graphics of the game is amazing, I really enjoy that Cartoony graphics because it usually tends to be more lasting. Leveling up is without a doubt one of the best experiences you could experience in any MMORPG out there today, the only cons I can think of is that it's not totally F2P and the Endgame content is kind of lacking.(although with new DLCs and Expansions coming out, it is definitely picking up)

    Ton of potential, trapped behind paywalls.

    Gameplay is extremely cookie cutter, although, very cinematic due to SWTOR featuring fully voiced questlines and charming graphics scheme. Quests have choices for you to make, and based off you choice, you can either be Light, Dark, or Neutral oriented. This effects your character over time.

    The worst part about SWTOR is its payment model. Free to play is extremely limited within this title, and in order to hit the games cap, you must subscribe. Feel like being nickel and dimed? Star Wars: The Old Republic is for you. Despite the fact I love the game, I despise its monetization strategy. Whether or not it pokes at you as well, is something that you’d have to find out. To conclude, if you love Star Wars, at least give it a shot. You might actually be able to look past the vast restrictions, or just subscribe your way past them.
