A Long Journey...
Star Wars: The Old Republic proved to be my favorite MMO of all time. I’ve enjoyed many and put some serious hours into them but with TOR, I actually finished the primary story line for each of the classes. I admit the last two required the 12x experience but I went through several of the classes pretty far with different choices. That’s what I loved about this title: the fact you could play through multiple times and receive different STORY elements.
This is not to say there aren’t weaknesses. The fact you have to go through the same path for quests is tough. If you get stuck on a planet, there aren’t any questing recourses (you could PvP or do ship combat to push past but you couldn’t just go to another zone). This is where games like WoW win and my wife recently proved that out by powering through the first 70 levels. Bored or stuck? Go to another zone.
