I've played it and cancelled my service. After you get past all the smooth graphics you will see there really isnt a game to be played.

I was in Beta and I have seen this game grow by leaps and bounds, but it is far far from being a game for the masses.

I absolutely love the game. I played Dark Age of Camelot for just over a year and I switched to SWG when I was invited into Beta. SWG allows quite possibly the most varied character development system in a MMORPG to date. Virtually no avatar looks the same, unless they are wearing matching armor, but there are still differences in body size, style, shape, and most apparent - Species.

Right now SWG does not have an overwhelming amount of content and there are still a lot of bugs, but unless you are a hardcore gamer planning on playing the game more than 8 hours a day trying to be uber, there is plenty of content already.

From Jabba's Palace on Tatooine to the treehouse villages on Endor, there is a massive universe to explore.

My character is a mix of many different professions. I can tame wild creatures like Dewback, Ronto, and Bantha. I have Master Scouting skills, I have some Medic skills, I am a pistoleer, I have some artisan skills in crafting, and I still have plenty of skill points to spend.

The first Month is free. If you are a fan of MMORPGs like EQ or DAoC - or if you are a Star Wars fan, The game is worth a try.

My unc showed me it, it seems good, but i see a lot of bugs the same as when EverQuest was released over 3 years ago,

It needs much developing, I think they should of done that before releasing it in full,

And before you ask, he had it shipped over from the states to here so he can play it early :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
