Not so with "Star Wars The Old Republic". Bioware have utilised the system they used in their popular single player games Knights of the old republic and Dragon Age to turn drab MMO text into fully voiced and visual cut scenes where you get respond to the questions you are given with different choices that see your character responding. This system makes the whole experience feel so much more real and really brings the story arcs to life in a way no other MMO in my opinion ever has. On top of this great feature the game has an excellent stylised visual look that is kinda a cross between the Clone Wars Cartoon style and a very crisp clean look like in Lord of the Rings online. Although I've only visited 3 worlds so far I can say that the design of them is excellent and makes you really feel like you are in the Star Wars universe. Now yes i am a Star Wars fan boy but i know several people who are playing the game that are MMO fans and not really into Star Wars that have commented how good the game is so far. Now its still early days yet i only have 2 characters and the highest is only level 19 but in that time I've managed to try out the Instance system, the PVP system and the Space combat - yes at level 17-18 you get a spaceship and can do space combat quests - its a lot like Star fox in its combat system (if anyone remembers that game).
As i get more into the game ill post up more reviews on what i think of the crafting system and more of the mid level and high level content.
Till then my main character is a Sith Juggernaught called Korrum on the Vornskr server, if anyone reading this is playing the game or thinking about it feel free to PM me in the game. It would be a blast to run around with some of the people who follow my blog.
