Star Wars Galaxies is a fully 3D MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game). It is the first MMORPG to be based on Star Wars and you can take many paths in this game, you can become an Imperial Officer, in space or on ground. Or you can join the Rebel force and help bring the rebels to victory.
In Star Wars galaxies you can also do things that you can do in other MMORPGs including, fishing (not an actual skill though), cook, craft, fight.
Star Wars Galaxies has many skills to choose from and you can have fun for hours doing quests to get more experience.
There is even a skill for player towns (Politician) which the leader must have.
The gameplay of Star Wars Galaxies can never get boring, fighting on this game isn’t just click the monster and wait for it to kill them, on this game you can get special moves which allow you to deal a lot more damage, and watch your character do cool things! Crafting in this game is just as fun, you can even craft droids, starships, armor, weapons and many other things.
There is also a PVP System which I haven’t used yet so I cannot tell you how good it is or how bad it is.
In Star Wars Galaxies you don’t die, you get ‘incapped’ which is basically, you get knocked out for so long and then you wake up. Some people may see this as a bad thing but if you get ‘incapped’ 3 times within 10 minutes you will die and to the nearest cloning facility to you. You can insure your items and create clone data so you don’t loose anything :).
Also the Star Wars Galaxies community is amazing, when I first started playing I was shocked by how kind people are as I came from a game called “RuneScape” which everyone will agree with me when I say this, but it has the worst community ever.
Anyway, as I was saying, just about everyone is friendly and willing to help you, or just if you want a chat, people will chat with you. When I joined the guild I am in now (Magical Trevor Guild, MTreV = Abb) I was welcomed in, even though I was completely new they didn’t call me a “n00b” which you experience in many other games.
The only problem I really have with this game is that it can go slow when loading towns etc
The graphics of this game are very good, this may sound cheesy as I haven’t really said anything bad about this game but to be honest it is one of the best MMORPG’s I have ever played.
The graphics again, are very good and in this game you can actually see the difference in sizes of animals, for example, a rat is small but a Krayt Dragon is HUGE.
Also, as for my characters avatar; if I do a special move you can actually see the avatar proforming it and not just some text saying Special Hit: 500 or so.
There are some pretty amazing sites in SWG and you can visit them and recieve badges for visiting them. They even put the escape pod of R2D2 and C3P0!
I’ll not go into much detail here as I don’t really pay attention to the sound and I don’t have my speakers on all the time.
SWG’s sound is reasonably good if you can’t play a game without having sound turned on :). There is also music and it will change depending on the area you are in.
The sound effects are very good I must say and these I have to have on. I must say one of the best sound effects I think is the rifles sound when firing as I like that sound and it reminds me of the movies.
You can play SWG for hours on end without getting bored, as I do. And if you ever consider joinng the game please play Europe – Farstar Server or if you enjoy roleplaying I recommend the Pheonix RP City on the Farstar Server. send a “tell” to me using /tell Becen .
If you enjoy roleplaying like I do, visit the Be Sarat Slarat (sorry if I spelt it wrong) town 3000m outside Mos Eisley!
