Hey everyone, just thought I'd give my .02 on the game from what little I've played of it. I had mine on reserve through Gamespot, and it came it a 7PM CST here in WI. The game LOOKS very good so far, I've only made it to about 3rd lvl with my Scout. Basically, if anyone's familiar with how 3rd edition dungeons and dragons is played, you'll be able to jump right into this game. Character creation is identical to what D&D is. You have your basic abilities, Strength, Intelligence, Wisdom, Dexterity, Constitution, and Charisma. Once you set your scores, you pick your skills and feats you wish to use. Again, EXACTLY like 3rd edition D&D.

Combat seems fairly straight forward so far. Upon meeting an enemy, the game pauses (which can be turned off in options) to let you assess the situation and act accordingly. Once you decide to engage and enemy, the battle is real time. Seems very cool so far, I like the combat system from what I've used of it. You can switch between your party's 'lead' character by pressing the black button. Very easy to switch between characters for assigning tasks and using items.

Being a old D&D player, and a huge Star Wars buff, I'm sure I'll LOVE this game. I'm also an Everquest player for what it's worth. If you've been waiting for a good Star Wars RPG title, this is definately it. The open-endedness of the game allows you to choose your path to the Dark or Light side. Also, as far as I can see, you're pretty free to travel where you wish.

Looks awesome so far, I'll post more as I learn...
