April 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 108

Since this game came out last December millions of people have been buying and playing it. Star Wars: The Old Republic or SWTOR as it's called online, has become a critical success. Being based on one of the most popular and successful science fiction franchises in the world this game will be popular for years to come.

This game takes place thousands of years before the events in the movies. In this time period there are two main factions the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Both factions had been at each other's throats for centuries. That was until the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which ended all hostilities between the factions. This peace treaty was thinly veiled, as fighting still went on in parts of the galaxy.

When you create your character you will have to choose which faction to fight for the Republic or the Sith Empire. Each faction is made up of four classes, and each class has two advance classes to choose. Some of the classes you can pick from are Jedi Knight, Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, and Sith Warrior. As you can see there are a lot of class options to pick from.

Your character can also select what species it wishes to be. Some of the species you could be are Human, Zabrak, Twi'lek, and Sith Pureblood just to name a few. There are a ton of customization options that you can pick from so your character is unique looking. There are also huge amounts of clothing and armor options available to your character.

Companions are another great feature of SWTOR. You will discover different companions as you travel the galaxy. Companions will aid your character in combat by either fighting at your side or healing you. What's great is you can customize what your companion looks like as well as how they aid you in combat. You companions can also craft items and do missions for you were they gather crafting resources. You can also give your companions gifts, and some companions have the option to be a love interest for your character.

Now what Star Wars game would be complete without space combat? The space combat in this game is very cinematic and very enjoyable. Each class gets their own ship and you can upgrade your ship as you progress through the game. Another exciting feature of this game is Flashpoints. Flashpoints are cinematic missions you go on with other players. Flashpoints have great boss fights and best of all great loot. The player versus player element in this game is called Warzones. One type of Warzone has you defending objectives while the other has you playing a football like game called Huttball.

Well as you can see Star Wars: The Old Republic has a lot of great features. Bioware the company that developed the game is doing a great job of maintaining the game by releasing patches and new content on a regular basis. Because of that this game will be a smash hit for years to come.
