I wanted top stop reading after the Who am I? paragraph. Maybe we-work this for future reviews. You sound like you're trying to say you know more than the reader, not a good message to send. It puts us on the defensive.

Just sharing a friendly criticism, take it or leave it. May the Force be with you!

The Game can't please all .
And personally i do find TOR as it stands as a really fun game with lots and lots of potential pretty much potential and possibilty WoW had in the start.

And personally i left WOW when they basicly dumbed down the game too much in the middle of Wotlk both PvP and Pve where way lower standards then it should have been then just to cater to instant gratification players

I agree with most of the points OP makes, but I think there's a lot of people that are just tired of WOW, and they will happily play a different game even if it's slightly worse, as long as it has high production values, like SW:TOR. But yes a lot of its features seem tacked on and hit or miss.

You're right about everything. How I remember the first days of WoW, no fetch quests in site. Even today while playing WoW I amaze myself at the lack of fetch quests. I happily collect 20 eggs or kill 14 monsters and love the fact it's not the same old quests.

Didn't seem much point reading the rest, so I'll leave with this comment. Real review places review the game weeks or months after launch. There's a reason for that. Oh and if you want the game to feel fresh at launch don't join in the beta's.

Now back to my bad *** SI

This is no argument. You wont compare your new car with the Ford Model T thats been out for 100 years. Why? Because your new car HAS to be BETTER. Because its not 1908 anymore and when a new car comes out, he has to be better than car than came out 100 years ago... So SWTOR has to be better FROM the start.

This isn't so much of a review, as simply an opinion on tor from a wow perspective. I appreciate everyone has an opinion but we're actually all playing it now. That means that most of those that disagree with you can no longer be called fan boys, because they're all forming legitimate opinions of thier own.

Sorry you did not have a nice time playing an awesome game. I was not part of a top 10 wow guild, but I did stay at a holiday inn last night, so that makes my opinion on the game just as valid as yours, and I think it is the bee knees.
