During more than one month of operation,Although a lot of problems have arisen of this game ,Such as a notorious dance bugs ,pvp imbalance bug as well as the rumos of homosexuality,But this game still can be called a very successful game(at least EA think so themselves) the ceo of EA company John Riccitiello said in a telephone meeting that till now , by Statistics on game retails and game platform there are 2million people bought this game .(EA’s management expects at least two million players to call the game successful at all, according to previous reports)This great operation make Star Wars: The Old Republic earning it the self-granted title of “fastest growing subscription MMO in history.”
In addition, the operations of the game has created a number of other extraordinary figures: 40% of the 2 million copies of the game client is sold through the origins of gaming platforms; around 1.7-million of them are active and clock in an impressive four hours of gameplay a day (on average).
EA’s Bioware R & D annual MMORPG masterpiece “Star Wars: The Old Republic” has been launched for nearly a month. Since they begin to charge on the 20th, this game who use “Beyond the World of Warcraft “as publicity theme get 35 million people online during peak hours in Europe and the United States service .this figure is even more than the wow data when it launched in Europe and the United States.
So, does this mean that the “Star Wars: The Old Republic,” will be able to slowly shake the market position of the “World of Warcraft “in future? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this masterpiece Comparing with WOW? Today let’s take a look at an evaluation of IGN who is the famous game media in Europe and America , and to see what is the difference of his masterpiece together.
The opening animation fascinating
“Star Wars: The Old Republic” is the kind of the game that can firmly grasp your attention when your first time login. The opening animation, almost like genuine Sith army from all sides into the competition for the Korriban region, the Sith Empire and the Republic bloody battle can immediately put the players into epic story that is full of strife, killings, friendship and anger .
After that in the interface of camp selection, there will be another video to introduce these two major factions. The Imperial Army concerned about power, control, and anger, however the Republic intend to recapture out of their homes through careful planning and perseverance. The whole cutscenes are magnificent and fascinating, I sincerely hope that the creators were able to make a complete movie.
Good role identity.
Although not easy to get started, but the role sense of “Star Wars OL” is commendable. when exchanges with the NPC or player, you can be proud and declared the people around that you are “the most evil of the Sith” or “bounty hunter who just believe the money but not people” From here on, BioWare, will provide hundreds of thousands of opportunities to enhance your identity (or 180 degree turn). Which make easier to hold the complex game system .
The biggest difference of “Star Wars OL operation is to remove the auto-attack, and replaced by a basic attack skills for each occupation, it also helps to accumulate the energy for the Jedi and the Sith Warrior, the effect is similar to WOW thieves and warrior.
I am not so interested in this Set of combat system , although it is removed he passive experience of automatically attack, but always have to keep key to cast the basic skills of those who have little annoying, beside the attack cycle becomes more complex.
After more than a month’s trial, the editor of the well-known international entertainment site IGN has finally given the ratings of the “Star Wars OL, and gives a lot of words of praise for this subscription based gaming masterpiece, and finally gives a total score of 9.0 points.
