Photo-Receptor Focus on: Makeb or Bust!
With Early Access beginning even earlier than expected, I was able to get in some play time last night to check out “Rise of the Hutt Cartel” and even made it to the newest planet: Makeb. My initial impressions? So far, so good!
More after the jump…
The first cutscenes were very well done and I was pleasantly surprised to see more color – not the muted dull colors, but actual, vibrant colors. That made me very happy! I was also pleased that the excellent graphics from the original game were even better. At least they were from what I got to see so far.
I managed to get all my skill points reassigned, thanks to an awesome guildmate. The new skill trees were a bit of surprise when I did a side by side comparison, which I hadn’t done before. While I added new skills to my Sorc, the ones I ignored before were pretty much the ones I didn’t take this time either. I’m anxious to really get out and start using them, but mostly last night was for housekeeping things.
I was pleased to see that the voice acting stayed up to the original standards, as well. Kudos, Bioware!
Be sure to log in all your alts because you get Cartel Coins for some achievements.
I didn’t do a lot of exploring yet, but I fully intend to do that as soon as possible. Which I’m going to do right now!
Enjoy 2.0 and feel free to share your own initial impressions!
That’s my two credits. What’s yours?
