Originally posted by J.C. Smith:Both used Hero Engine, but TOR was build on a beta copy of the engine and used a completely different renderer. I think there is generally a lot of confusion from players as to what Hero Engine does. Yes, it does have a rendering engine. That is not cutting edge, it's acceptable, but not on par with the likes of Unreal Engine, Crytek, etc. The strength of Hero Engine though is in the other things, things that the aforementioned engines do not do, the MMO specific features. In the end though any engine is just a block of clay. It's up to the developers to improve them and adjust them for their own needs.
