Apr 21, 2013Alright. 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.
+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
Apr 29, 2013For $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
Apr 19, 2013I could barely stand grinding out the first level of the xpack. The zone isnt that great is really just compartmentalized requiring you to use quick travel points to get around which really destroys the whole flow of the planet. The quests are very bland nothing new here to see and its very clear this Xpack was released for the sole purpose of getting people to fork over some cash or to get the pure F2P people to pay a token fee to keep playing a relevant game.
Nothing new move wise all and all not really even worth the 10 bucks for a content addon that was planned to be released for free almost a year ago.
Also if you dont have a subscription plan on it taking 2x as long to level, which really makes this xpack 25 or 35 dollars if you didn't get the pre-purchase discount.
AVOID UNLESS YOU LOVE STARWARS!… Expand
