Star Wars: The Old Republic Sith Warrior Guide -- You Don't Know The Power Of The Dark Side... But You Can!

At long last, BioWare and EA's epic massively multiplayer online role playing game, Star Wars: The Republic, is finally out. Our own Star Wars aficionado here at G4, Matt "I-already-have-eight-characters-in-SW: TOR" Keil has been playing the game for hundreds of hours and found that with BioWare's flawless storytelling integrated with MMO gameplay is working exceptionally well.

"The story and its presentation pulls you into the world in a way unlike any other MMO out there. While everyone who played World of Warcraft was attached to their characters because of the time put into them and their utility in the game, your SWTOR character are actually, well, characters. You don’t just care about what gear they’re wearing or what their crit chance is, you have a clear idea of who they are thanks to the storyline and your choices in it. When I play through a quest, I not only hope I get a good loot drop from the boss, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to my Agent from a narrative perspective, too."
