SW:TOR - A Review of the Reviews

No other MMO in the history of the industry has ever received this much attention before its launch. It also stands to say that no other MMO has ever been "reviewed" as much while in beta. To make matters all the more interesting, there seems to be a growing divide between those who are enthralled by the game and those who are shockingly disappointed.

Wow, beta reviews? Battlefield 3 would've sunk into the red on metacritic if they were counted :P (in reference only to 360, not sure about other 2 platforms).

Maybe I am missing something, but I think it is kinda uncool to review a beta of a game, since betas are generally for testing purposes and do not really represent the final version of the game. Perhaps instead of trying to be the cool kid on the block who got beta access these people should be giving this feedback to Bioware which might give them a chance to make changes to any 'real' problems prior to release. If anything maybe they should use the word preview, since these are not reviews of a finished product.
