so... i didnt really know which forum to post this under cuz i dont play the game... so i just chose "republic holonet".
so guys, the question:
is this game basically the "World of Warcraft" of Star Wars? i havent bought or played it, but from what ive gathered, its basically a Star Wars themed Massively MultiPlayer Online Role-Playing Game (mmorpg). if someone could give me a *brief* summary of this game, its pros and cons, aspects of gameplay, plotline, etc, i would appreciate it. thanks, and maybe i will be joining your Old Republic universe soon!

p.s. and yes, i know i can find summaries of it pretty much anywhere i look, but i like to get an insider opinion about games... the firsthand account of someone who already plays the game.

None of us here can tell you about the game from a player's perspective, it's still in beta testing (with an NDA).

Well there is another Star Wars MMO called Galaxies. It has been around a while. The NEW Star Wars MMO The Old Republic has not released as of yet.

ive played Galaxies and didnt much care for it; will the Old Republic probably be better? and wasnt there a game called "Knights of the Old Republic"? is that not what this is? was that MMO or just SP?
