Product Shot 1 The Pros:Each quest is fully voiced by your character and computer controlled characters (NPCs). All classes get 5 companions, each fully voiced with their own quest lines. Groups of players can interact and make conversation choices together with NPCs in cutscenes.

The Cons:Few species to choose from and little difference between species.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a story-driven, massively multiplayer online RPG video game developed by BioWare (Austin) and released by LucasArts for Microsoft Windows. Based on the Star Wars universe, ‘The Old Republic’ centers on an age thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader, during a time when the world is involved in a war between the Old Republic and the Sith Empire.

Product Shot 2 Users choose from a class (e.g. Jedi, Sith), befriend companions, and battle enemies in their quest for control of the galaxy. Players have one of two major paths to follow: either the light or the dark side of the Force. Depending on the choices made by the player, they will either earn respect or ‘blow it bigtime’ if they manage to fail to meet NPC expectations.

Additional Information

Despite the incredibly large storyline, ‘The Old Republic’ is still at its base a multiplayer game, and is described by Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Friend and General Manager/CEO of Bioware & General Manager/Vice President of Electronic Arts Inc, as “fusing BioWare’s heritage of critically-acclaimed storytelling with the amazing pedigree of Lucasfilm and LucasArts, and adding a brand-new fourth pillar to the equation – a multiplayer universe."
