Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Its good.

Its a good game, with hours of gameplay, all 8 stories offer a lot. I would suggest a time limit. Its kinda addicting, But not as addicting as other games I could mention. Slight violence is present, but there is no blood of gore. Its just a hit mark (like in fortnite).

If you PVP this is the worst game on the planet.

I've played many MMOs. SWTOR by far is the worst MMO for PVP. They allow overpowered classes in PVP to linger and never bother to fix it. Don't bother complaining to BIOWARE, they could not care less about PVP. It's all about their PVE base. If you're a hard core PVP player who hates the PVE aspect of MMOs, they don't play this game. Waste of time and money.
