"A Beautiful Game, although not strictly a MMORPG"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Being an RPG fan, I was excited to try this one out after doing extensive research on it. So here are my thoughts on it:

PROS:

  • No monthly fee!
  • Excellent graphics
  • Less focused on level-grinding (more story-driven)
  • Ability to choose from various views, from overhead to first person, depending on whether you're a Diablo or Everquest gamer
  • Many customizations available for you to personalize your character (a must for any really good RPG)
  • Zones outside of the towns are not shared with other players, meaning that you don't end up fighting over spawns
  • You can choose to group with NPC mercenaries so you don't spend endless hours looking for a group just so you can start playing

CONS:

  • May be difficult to grasp the basics without someone in-game helping you (I didn't find the manual informative and online help seemed to speak in Guild Wars jargon which you wouldn't know to begin with.)
  • Not as much opportunity to interact with other players with individually-generated zones and less need for groups
  • With a level cap at 20, you're looking at more of a PvP experience, rather than Player vs Environment.

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: I was a bit disappointed as unfortunately, the two things that I love in MMORPGs were greatly reduced (PvE and player interaction). Having said that, I can see how this would be an excellent game for those who aren't looking for those 2 elements. With its beautiful graphics and no monthly fee, Guild Wars is still an excellent game.

"A PvP must!"
4 stars"

This game started off fine but It focused more on PvP rather than PvE, In the early days doing alliance battles to gain faction and owning a town was the in thing, Sadly times pass and people move on to brighter experiences with in this game, If you can get in a good team to AB with a good non Melodrama guild Then It can be a lot of fun.

However as I have Planned GW for 18 Months alike so many I did the faction PvP thing and got burned out, Now it seems to be an Ideal “power leveler” if you so wish to fast level your toons. It's also sadly missed out on alont of teh main events such as Winterfest which I personaly think if it had been including it may have kept its hype.

With that all said Its Still a worth while game to have as it helps tell the Guildwars tale, Besides helps you understand other campiagns.
