There have been numerous reports and accusations that SWTOR is a WoW-killer
. For many, it will be a good thing if it is. Some are tired of WoW and tired of WoW-clones
. They’re looking for something new, something to make a big splash in the MMO scene and SWTOR
claims to be it.
This article on Product-Reviews.net takes a look at this notion and whether or not SWTOR will really be a WoW-killer.
“Most gamers will agree that the notion of any such game being able to topple the might of Blizzard’s WoW will be like saying; the Mega Drive can compete with the PS3’s graphics. However, SWTOR has so much more to give gamers, more in fact than Wow, but there is still much more to consider. Gamerzitch has now weighed in on the argument saying that BioWare has developed a game that makes you feel important, but is that really enough to topple the fan base of Blizzard’s MMO?”
I don’t know. If any game could do it, I would think a story-driven Star Wars themed MMORPG
by BioWare would be the very game to achieve such a feat. I’m not a WoW-hater. I’ve played since beta
. I have a guild still actively seeking Firelands progression but a good lot of us are just waiting on SWTOR. We have our guild registered, our members signed up and most have pre-ordered the game already. To say we are ready is an understatement.
Will SWTOR achieve
what it promises or will it let us down? The reviews goes more in depth on the claims:
Some people never played an MMORPG before- or since-WoW and they have no intentions of leaving.
What do you think?
