GameZone's Mike Splechta gives his initial Beta Impressions of SWTOR and concludes, "I, along with everyone else at GZ, are amazed at how much of a game changer Star Wars the Old Republic is."
Its really not a game changer. It's essentially a re-skinned WoW in the Starwars universe (content and most game mechanics). HOWEVER, it plays just like the first two KOTOR games and the story actually made me stop playing Skyrim for 3 days straight. Very excited to continue my journey as a Sith Sorcerer/Assassin. However since Guild Wars 2 is speculated to be released this upcoming spring, I really don't know if this warrants a purchase.
