I wasn't a fan of ESO myself, but never base your opinion off of one review. Or even a few reviews. Talk to people you know whose opinion you trust, and try it out. That's the only way to get a real feel for it. Because newsflash, people have different tastes.

I don't trust that man.

I don't like the ES series anyway, so I don't really care about the game.
Then you may like it I'm not a big Skyrim fan, but I enjoyed the Beta. A lot of the so-so reviews, and certainly the one referenced, didn't like it because it is too different from ES single player games, I mean it is an MMO.

P.S. Supposedly there were about 5 million people signed up for the Beta. Even if only a small fraction of that decide to play it will do alright.

The question is how many might stick with the game for the long run, I wouldn't be too surprised if the game will see the same drop in subs in a few month which pretty much happens to every MMO. So, I am looking forward to how long it will take that game to go F2P...

Anyway, what has this to do with SWTOR?

Well, there 'is' a mention in the review about the lack of commitment to TOR-level Storytelling in TESO. And no lightsabers, either.

Yes let's post a review about a game still in beta just so we can make ourselves feel better about SWTOR

First off.. it still was in BETA and some of the items he mentioned have been reported to fix already.

Secondly.. that reviewer didn't even level to 10 and check out any dungeons or PVP. So I'll take his half witted review it with a grain of salt. Did he run across the SAME mission bugs as the rest of the folks? YES...

First impressions are everything. And I doubt it will the core of the game will change much from beta to the finished product.

I have no particular interest in ESO, not for or against myself.

I got in to beta a few of the stress test weekends and it was kinda meh..I'm not THAT impressed by it...but on the same hand it was better than I was expecting.

That review is garbage though....The guy goes on about his expectations and harps on it not being like the Single-Player games more...It was never supposed to be and they said a loooooong time ago that you weren't going to have THAT much freedom. So at this point, his gripes about that are his own stupidity.

I doubt I'll buy it (esp if it's $60) But it's not as bad as that review claims...

Will it fail as hard as SWTOR did and go F2P before it was even a year old? I guess we'll find out.
