This game would have been one of the best single player games ever if the game ended when you finished your story. The problem is they tossed this "end game" on to it to try to collect revenue from subscriptions that is absolutely HORRID. By far one of the WORST END GAMES EVER RELEASED. I mean it is up there with Age of Conan and Failhammer for how bad it is.

PVP is the worst thing to hit PVP since PVP started. Who thought giving everyone a knockback, CC, multiple spells of the same kind on different tree's, broken resolve bar, etc was a good idea?

This didnt even come close to the hype. Probably one of the biggest let downs in mmo history besides Vanguard when that was hyped as well although nothing of this scale.

Good game, didn't make the hype though.

Great sequel to KOTOR2. Fails as a MMO.

This game is amazing. I was invited to the Beta, and never logged on, becuase I thought it was going to be a space version of all the fantasy MMORPGs. Now I am kicking myself for it. It is beyond anything that I imagined it could be. The potential to make this an epic mmoRPG (emphasising the RPG) is incredible. My fear is that they will do the same thing every other MMOrpg (yes that was intentional) and start worrying about accomodating the casual player at the cost of the RPG aspect, when they will only give it a few hours on the weekend and then eventually move on to something else.

If this game was free to play I think it would be an o.k game.
