    The absence of new warzones, flashpoints, and class- and companion-specific missions reveal a dishearteningly diminished scope – but for the price, it's a significant load of content and a good excuse to fire up the ol' lightsaber, if only for a little while.

    A new planet and engaging romantic opportunities are among the features that make Rise of the Hutt Cartel so inviting.

    It’s hard not to notice that free World of Warcraft patches offer you just a bit less content than Rise of the Hutt Cartel. [CD-Action 10/2013, p.71]

    Rise of the Hutt Cartel is decent in its own right, but ultimately too little too late for all but the most dedicated fans.

    Cheap price for a whole new area and level cap, a full expansion to the game would be great but i'm happy enough with this for the time being.Cheap price for a whole new area and level cap, a full expansion to the game would be great but i'm happy enough with this for the time being.

    Hopefully this is the start of a long list of game add on's!

    Alright. Firstly I would like to point out that I made an account just to be able to review this, so pardon me if me reviewing isn't tooAlright. Firstly I would like to point out that I made an account just to be able to review this, so pardon me if me reviewing isn't too professional. Now, about me a little, I'm an MMORPG addict, I've played GW2, Rift, Wow and many others. However the one I really have been into lately is SWTOR. Though it had a tough start I have seen this game evolving and getting better everyday. With this New expansion you have the chance to not only experience and new story and new levels but a whole new planet. For subscribers its only 10$ and for F2P 20$, which is a very affordable price in my opinion. Here I feel like Bioware have accomplished their job. And no its not because they work with EA that it means they do completely crappy games. In fact if you take a close look on XFIRE top played games SWTOR is always shifting between 10th, 9th or even 8th with a constant 5000 hours+ per week.
    To conclude:
    +Great content
    +New levels, tons of stuff to do even when reached the lvl cap (I have played for 300 hours+ and I'm still not done with my toon
    +Cool story, well driven
    -Needed a new FP

    For $10 this expansion is a good deal. This is the best all around MMO on the market right now. It's great to play alone or with friends.For $10 this expansion is a good deal.

    For $10 ($20 for non-subscribers) this is a decent mini-expansion. The story on Makeb is personalized and tailored to your character. However,For $10 ($20 for non-subscribers) this is a decent mini-expansion. The story on Makeb is personalized and tailored to your character. However, I cannot give this a higher score than about a 7 or so because the end-game is completely recycled. The 4 hardmode flashpoints are hardmodes of already existing flashpoints, there are no leveling flashpoints on Makeb. Some guilds cleared Scum and Villany, the level 55 raid, on Nightmare in literally a day. Not acceptable, imo. Expand

    Tried to contact support but of course as a former player I still dont get any help if I dont start up a subscription.

    And as blizzard they make a expansion so they can get a new score and trick more players.

    EA get father and father away from what it once stood for. RIP EA.
