A gigantic MMO deserves a gigantic review and that’s just what IGN has given us for their “final verdict” detailed review of SWTOR. This review comes after 160+ hours of game playing time and IGN leaves SWTOR with a 9 out of 10 stars.
This is a very thorough descriptive write-up of SWTOR from the IGN reviewers. They talk about the cinematics, the character creation and storyline, quest givers and other NPCs and much more. The review takes us deeper in to the game than many other “overviews” that claim to be reviews.
Here’s a snippet:
The classic scrolling yellow text of the films begins immediately after you’ve created your character, accompanied by the Star Wars theme. There is, in my mind, no better way BioWare could have kicked off your adventure. The text briefly explains who you are and in what context you’re entering the galaxy. It’s unique to each class and, along with the cinematic that follows, sets you on your way to making a name for yourself. This is where inexperienced players will hit a figurative force-field.
IGN explains the tip system and how there is no real “tutorial” system in place in SWTOR so a lot of things you have to figure out yourself. Or you could read a guide. Many of the functions and UI elements are your typical MMO fare so if this isn’t your first MMORPG, you’ll be good to go.
From combat to companions and more, IGN covers everything you will experience in the game. If you’re still thinking of buying SWTOR or you want to convince a friend to buy it, then this is a great review to send over their way.
The total review is thousands of words long so if you want to know everything they had to say about the game, you’ll just have to head on over and check it out for yourself.
