If you have ever watched any of the “Star Wars” movies, you know that they are packed to the brim with action and adventure. Several years ago, there was an arcade game based on the movie starring Luke Skywalker and the minions of Darth Vader. It did very well, but it was a simple one player game, and interaction with the gaming environment was very limited. But now, there is an online game based on the highly successful movie franchise of the same name – Star Wars: The Old Republic.
In this science fiction multi-player game, you are a young cadet in a world set roughly 300 years after the “Knights of The Old Republic” storyline where you choose whether to fight for the Empire or the Republic. Which side you choose to fight for will also greatly influence what things you focus on in order to be successful in this online game.
If you choose to fight for the Empire, learning how to make anger, power, and control work in your favor will be your ticket to conquering your enemies, and ultimately the game. If you choose to fight for the Republic, you will need to use your cunning and strategic skills in order to take back what has been lost in the battle against the forces of evil. Regardless of what side you choose to fight on, you will need to use all of your wits and fighting skills in order to be successful in your endeavors.
Once you’ve created your character, you are treated to the characteristic scrolling yellow text that briefly explains what kind of intergalactic world you will be facing. In the beginning, it does take some effort to figure out a few things about this game, but there is a tip system in place to help you along the way. However, once you really get going with this game, you will find it very engaging and entertaining. If you have played any type of MMO in the last few years, the complex game system used in this game will not be too complicated for you.
Whether you are looking to really get involved with an MMO or just looking for a fun way to spend a few hours of your time each week, Star Wars: The Old Republic is definitely an online game that you will want to check out.
