Bioware treated hungry MMO fans by letting them see quite a lot of SWTOR’s gameplay. Well, to be honest, they just provided a link to IGN who were really the ones to provide the video. Some people on the forums were disheartened to realize that SWTOR is just an MMO, and not the second coming of Jesus. But my reactions were more positive.
It’s an MMO in Alpha, yet it looks very solid. And while the blaster bolts seem to just spray in an enemy’s general direction until it’s out of health, the melee combat looks extremely satisfying. A Sith Warrior can leap across the room, whack you with a saber and impale you. A smuggler can kick a man in the groin to stun him. I don’t need to see see someone’s health bar drop to know that hurts.
