Played the last free weekend and i enjoyed it but i've been playing MMO's for years and although i'm a fan of the genre its just seems too much of the same, i loved the conversations like mass effect but it was the combat and moving around that put me off ever fancying to pay for the game, i've overplayed the genre and only really unique mmo's really get my attention now a days.

July. Anyone who is a StarWars fan and hasn't played it yet, should check it out. It's worth it.

I played the Beta and I thought that story-wise the game was brill (would have preferred KOTOR 3 though) but the gameplay was the same as WOW.

As a Star Wars fan I would definitely recommend playing it F2P, heck I definitely will but in no way will I pay for a MMO, never have, never will.

Now Guild Wars, where you pay once for the game, that has things right.

Thanks. If the gameplay is the same as wow, I'm not sure how much I will enjoy that. The story elements sound fun though. I've never paid for an mmo before and the cost of Star Wars seens expensive so a permanent free trial is a great idea.
