Welcome to the Star Wars The Old Republic Review. I’ve known this week was coming for a long time. On Wednesday, the earliest point I knew I could begin playing, I made the usual arrangements: relocated my PC to the basement, purchased 24x 500ml MONSTER energy drinks, a carton of Marlboro Golds, informed friends and family that I’d be holidaying in the Bahamas — typical MMORPG release procedure. And then I waited, watched and researched until my email arrived. “Your Saga Begins.” These words, that I had imagined a hundred times, marked the beginning of my latest adventure in the Star Wars Universe.
