So far the game has given me a train heist… which is always going to be cool when it happens. One of my all time favorite missions in The Secret World is Last Train to Cairo which also… was effectively a train heist of sorts. This really is a bad ass construct and I am surprised that more games don’t use it. If I had to guess the train I am on is probably stationary and the scenery keeps being spawned in and moving past me, but I have no clue how they actually pulled this off technically.

Stomping around the ancient Jedi Library on Ossus and massacring a bunch of Jedi with Darth Malgus was pretty fun, I’ll admit. The dude is a hulking badass, but I do think bringing him back was kind of weak. Hopefully more is explained later, but I feel this would’ve been a great opportunity to introduce a new character. … [Read more...] about Jedi Under Siege is Underwhelming and Undercooked
