Star Wars: The Old Republic Preview for PC from 1UP.com

If you don’t like MMOs, then you won’t like Star Wars: The Old Republic. Despite Bioware‘s pitch that the game is “Knights of the Old Republic 3, 4, 5, and 6 rolled into one”, based my time with the beta, TOR owes more to World of Warcraftthan KOTOR.

I sunk around 20 hours into my human Jedi Shadow/Consular before writing this preview. In that time I went from young Padawan on the reclaimed Jedi homeworld of Tython to Jedi Consular on my own ship with a mission set to take me across the galaxy. My character is now sitting aboard said craft at level 20 — the same level I quit playing most of the WOW characters I ever created. However, I don’t want to quit. I’d be playing the game right now if 1UP wasn’t currently being slammed by the rush of games being released.

As mentioned in the headline, TOR is basically WOW with lightsabers. That’s an overly reductive statement but I guarantee it’s one you’re going to hear from disappointed KOTOR fans upon the game’s release the Christmas. Do yourself a favor and stop listening to them now. Yes, TOR plays a lot like WOW, but that’s a good thing for the most part.
