Hands On with SWTOR: Natalie Shoemaker and PC Mag SWTOR Review

For five years we have waited for this game. We were not waiting alone. Natalie Shoemaker of PC Mag has been waiting as well and now that the big day has finally arrived, she’s sharing her hands on experience with the Internet world.

She starts us off with an overview (for those who might still not know much about the game, yet):

“The company has set lofty (read: expensive) goals for itself: A fully voiced game complete with cut scenes. BioWare also hasn’t left SWTOR without the company’s signature touch for creating involved storylines for each character class, as well as dialogue options and a moral choice system that affects certain outcomes of your game (though it’s currently uncertain how much in SWTOR).”

She then tells us about some of the basics of SWTOR and what you can expect from the game. Again, basic info for those of us who have been following the game for some time. She then goes on to talk about choosing your journey- useful for anyone who is just starting out in the game.

It’s a great start and I look forward to hearing more from her as she goes through her experience in SWTOR. It’s also a great read for anyone who didn’t game test/beta or who wants to learn more about what SWTOR is really like.

A child of the Nintendo generation, she believes they just don’t make games like they used to but sometimes, they make them even better! While consoles will always be her first love, Lisa spends most of her gaming time on the PC these days- on MMOs and first-person shooters in particular.
