I have been looking for a real MMO for about a year now... I have tried several MMO's in that time, here is a list. 1. Rift (kiddie or immature brat city) 2. Guild Wars 2 (combat felt...off... I dunno) and the new 3. The new Final Fantasy (um finish a game before you release it, and omg was it boring and buggy) 4. Planetside 2 (Planetside in name only, nothing on the orginal. Fun for a while though) Never once did I try SWTOR, I bought into all the hate. Maybe a lot was justified, or maybe it wasn't. Either way I bought in head, line and sinker. But recently after giving the above MMO's a try I decided to finally give SWTOR a go... And I have to say, this probably is the most complete and polished MMO I have ever played. Combat is good, the cut scenes are awesome, companion (pets) very well done, dungeons are damn good! All I can say is that if you were like me and wanting something to pass the time while you wait for Wildstar, you might want to give SWTOR a go. So far so great with me, wish I would have tried it when it first came out instead of listening to those silly reviews.
