Is Galaxies worth the price?

Do you reckon Galaxies is worth the price?


Never was anything great achieved without danger.

I do. Lots of additional free content - like Hoth, for example, some servers are very busy, free character transfers coming soon, 3 expansions worth of content and much more. Its better value than ever!

yeah, the amount of stuff you can do is crazy. lots of roleplaying opportunities.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

I do as well. with other MMO's it takes forever to do anything. plus u need to spend so much money for buffs, etc etc i.e WoW. repair bills and just to see the new content takes forever. prior to raids have to farm so much for every day life. it sucks.

Three expansions? Would it be worth it to return as a vet?

Just like every other MMO...over $120 a year just to keep playing on the servers...you decide...



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

Apparently other people do pay that to subscribe...not just SWG, but over 11 million people do for WoW...

Just think of how much these companies are raking in because of it? Don't tell me all that money goes to covering server prices because that would be a pure lie...

I'm just saying...it's not good business...for the consumer.

I was wondering the same question. I was digging through my Attic today, looking for beanies, and I found a copy of Galaxies. I remember buying it but I also thought I sold it. Is it worth buying?

Yes! Yes, Mine Precious! Worth it it is!

I started my trader--what--two weeks ago? And I'm probably going to finish leveling later tonight--then I can focus on MONEY!!!!! The community is very helpful, friendly, and supportive, for the most part. Of course there was that Wookiee that slapped me earlier...but he was just looking for a fight. (And boy did I give him one, teehee) But anyhow, Galaxies is great. You can do anything your little ol' heart desires; kill things, break things, make things, fight things, fly things, grow things, sell things, or just hang in the cantina or go explore any of twelve striking planets. There's a profession for every taste. You do things at your own pace.

And if you decide to start playing, send me a PM and we can meet up! I'm on Starsider.


Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's home to work I go!!

This game has MASSIVE potentail

I have played WoW and Galaxies (still playing wow since 04")

and both games are very good but SWG kinda dies if you dont have anyone else to play with. Its all about the friends you make and community. SWG kinda feels dead nowa days on some servers and SWG has no high end content like wow does so more focus on freinds is needed
