SOE "Clone Wars Adventure", Isn't An MMO
 
Hi Guys,

Go figure, the "Clone Wars Adventure" currently in open beta isn't even an MMO. It's a hub in a 3d space ala the "Jedi Temple" for mini-games.

I got it from the horses mouth per say when Pex an SOE developer responded to a question i posed on the games official Sony forum site. Link. (Scroll down to Aug. 26th)

Oh well, I guess Bioware has nothing to fear in terms from Sony Online Entertainment.

Good to know since I was just going to go back and check it out, but if all it is is mini-games, well not my cup of tea.

Haven't played it but the graphics don't look half bad from what I've seen. Something to pass the time when your bored I guess. :)

it's like free realms but star wars and not pretend open world ... it's all mini games and walking around a lobby area in yer outfit

If you have a young kid its not bad. My 5 year old goes nuts every time he plays it. A few of the mini games are actually a lot of fun to play.

Hello Arep,

Long time not seeing you about. :)

I signed up for the Jedi Membership at the one month level to see how the rest of the content is like. If its any good, i may go for the "Lifetime Member Plan" which is like the cost to a brand new PC game.

I do like how the items a player purchases like the speeder bikes are used inside the mini-games themselves.

I'm also wondering what goody the Beta Testers will get as a parting thank you gift from SOE.
