    If you like WoW, you're in luck. It's WoW with lightsabers. (well, actually i'ts more like Rift...which is a clone of WoW, except with polished gameplay mechanics that make WoW feel archaic).

    I didn't play outside of any betas so i'm not entirely sure how the games content has panned out, but I know there's the typical bitching that there's no real endgame content yet. That's the problem with casual MMOs, their PVP is trash so their endgame content is almost entirely PvE fixed. WoW can avoid this fact pretty easily since it has had god damn years to add content, but new MMOs people are reeeeally impatient with.

    The story is crap, but it's an MMO. Honestly if anyone expected the story to be good, they should stand back and just laugh at themselves.

    tl;dr, if you like WoW, you'll very likely enjoy TOR.

    I haven't played it myself, but one of my friends just bought it. He's pretty enthusiastic about it, and is having a blast with the game; he's even really into the story. So yeah, I guess that counts as a recommendation.

    Also, if you want to give the game a shot, have you tried the Weekend Pass?

    It's already over, it finished Sunday I believe... I actually took a chance to try it and it was pretty good and I played it for two of the 4 days, although I was disapointed with the char creation... I was hoping for something more advanced from a Bioware and Lucas Arts game..

    You are now able to invite friends for a 7 day play period.

    I'd do it but mine are all taken up.

    It's pretty much a texture pack for WoW.
