I got very excited a couple of weeks ago when I received an email to the weekend beta testing for Star Wars: The Old Republic as it has been a game I’ve waited for a long time. I had never played an MMO before with the exception of free trials for WoW, Eve Online, Star Trek Online and Star Wars Galaxies though none of them captured my attention for long.
As I loved KotOR and KotOR TSL, as well as BioWare, I anticipated SWTOR to be the first MMO I would play, particularly as the single player content was rumoured to be comprehensive.
Well, turns out the game is indeed unplayable on my laptop, even using the lowest settings. A couple of months ago this would not have surprised me, but I have since managed to play Deus Ex Human Revolution, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, as well as Skyrim with no issues, all using the lowest settings available.
I guess returning to the Old Republic will have to wait months if not years.
