Fire up your lightsabers, Star Wars fans. The developer behind the 2003 role-player "Knights of the Old Republic," a game that had a better plot and characters than each of George Lucas' last three films, is now staking out "World of Warcraft" territory with "The Old Republic." It's actually tempting to call it "WoW in Space" because the game shares a massive amount of similarities with Blizzard's omnipotent massive multiplayer online game. But what sets "Old Republic" apart are the massive amount of storytelling and voice acting that actually make you feel like you're part of the game's universe. Like any game of this type, there should be a warning label attached that it can be harmful to the health of your social life, but overall the Force is strong with this one.
