Star Wars: The Old Republic is available on Windows PC/Laptop for free!
SO, I finally got rid of my useless Laptop and got myself a custom built gaming PC one perfect for Star Wars The Old Republic. Let me start by saying that I love this game, I haven’t played it in about a year because my laptop simply couldn’t handle it but no longer. I logged in and chose to continue playing as my Sith Marauder…and immediately had no idea what I was doing!
I had forgotten every control other than movement so the first 30 minutes were spent re-familiarising myself with all the controls and options. However, the attack and travel layouts are all they’re for you to the point where as long as you know how to move and use the number keys to attack, everything else can be controlled by your mouse. it’s very simplistic so even if you have never played an MMORPG on PC/Laptop before you will have no trouble with this game at all.
This game has so many redeeming features such as customisation, a rich and varied story,and gripping character arcs. You can even paly as an Empire or Republic character and follow their story or make them switch sides, If you so wish. It may be one of the best Star Wars games i have ever played, but…
…one thing that really lets this game down are the missions, not the content or the objectives, those are fine. It’s the length of them, because the maps of the game are so expansive and there is so much to do. One mission could easily take you 2 hours at a minimum, longer if you take breaks in between or you don’t have a mount to ride upon, that’s very important ALWAYS HAVE A MOUNT!!!! trust me on this. If you don’t and you spend the day playing this, 80% of your game play will be spent getting from point to point, a fact i learned the hard way.
The Story of Star Wars: The Old Republic
As i really only stick to my Sith character i can only tell you about that path during your campaign in Star Wars. The basics are you play as the new apprentice to Darth Baras and aid him in his quest to destroy the republic and control the empire. Well…i say aid, i mean do all the dirty work while he takes the glory. Although he will give you credit when you call him on his bullshit. That’s all i’m going to be telling you as i don’t want to spoil it for those that have never played it before, and if you are one of them then…WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?
