Hey I used to play SWG when it first came out after a few months of realizing that everyone could pwn a TKM i quit. Ive been playing FFXI since but just recently quit that, now im thinking of a new game to play. wondering since i still have this SWG here, should i try it agina....anyone know if there have been any major improvements? im going to read the swg forums but just wanted to get some quick feedback.

SWG changed a lot. It is more action-orientated. Before there was a wide selection of classes and multi-classing. Now SOE consolidated all of them into (correct me if I'm wrong) 11 classes. They also removed the Jedi trial quest because you can start as one now.

I had a real jedi. Before they were handed out like candy. After they made that change the game was unplayable for me and a whooooole lot of people left.

The game is laggy and buggy as hell. Took me 30 minutes to get past the intro tutorial and there is this constant slowdown that I can't explain. doesn't happen on any other, better-looking games that I have so I just quit since it was unplayable.

The game is so graphically dated. It shouldn't take 2 gigs to smooth it out.

I had to play it with all the setting turned down to get a smooth frame rate.
