Joystiq: Star Wars: The Old Republic Hands-On

Prolific MMO players should be familiar with the Trooper's combat mechanics. Basic rifle shots build up action points that you can use to execute stronger attacks, such as a concussive shot that knocks enemies to the floor, a sticky grenade which incapacitates an enemy before dealing tons of burst damage and a rapid fire ability which riddles an enemy with lasers. There's also a melee attack which knocks enemies who get too close for comfort to the ground but, with a long cooldown timer, this is a last-ditch measure.

The story is too old to be commented.
