Blazing Hot PvP, Lukewarm PvE 0

This review is a review of the core gameplay elements of Guild Wars, including not only the original Prophecies campaign but also the Factions, Nightfall and Eye of the North expansions. Strong suits: To put it simply, Guild Wars has the best PvP you’ll find in an MMO. There are literally dozens of viable builds for each class combination, and large scale skill balancing takes place every month. You don’t need to spend days or weeks powerleveling a character and farming gold for the best equipme...

Amazing Fun Game! 1000s Of Skills/Spells And Non-Stop Fun. 0

I'm not sure where to start because this game has too many features for me to write down. I believe this is the greatest RPG ever made on PC. Its hard to classify it into an MMO or not because you get a fresh world when you enter the terain (so no Kill Stealers) but either way, its one of the best in its class! First off all i have to say this game takes months to actually understand no matter how much of a quick learner or gamer you are. I bought this game from Futureshop in March/April 2008 w...

Possibly the best no monthly fee MMO there is. 0

Guild Wars 2 is on its way, so this game will be pretty dead soon.The game costs a single fee, but there are no reoccurring monthly fees, so you won't feel like you've wasted a lot of money if you decide you don't like it.If you are going to get this game, I would suggest also getting an expansion, like Factions or Nightfall (Eye of the North is different), because hardly anybody plays the original anymore. It will be hard to find players to do missions with and you will end up playing by yourse...

A MMO that stands out in a genre filled with ''WoW Clones''. 0

Overview Guild Wars is a game so unlike anything else available on current MMORPG the market, that some people may be initially put off by its game play. Indeed, it's a game that, in the beginning, doesn't do a whole lot to draw you in. The tutorial area does a basic job at explaining the core game play mechanics, but the game itself takes some time to become fun and exciting. It's a good thing then, that once you are past that point, the sense of challenge and storyline progression ( which i...

An engaging RPG that can be enjoyed alone or with friends 0

Guild Wars seems to represent a middle ground between RPG’s which can be played online via server lobbies, such as the NeverWinter Nights games, and those of a persistent nature, such as World of Warcraft. While it doesn’t provide a seamless persistent world for people to run free around, it does provide an incredibly immersive and engaging place to join up with friends online and go playing together in small groups. While the “instance” barriers provide load-times and cut off points for particu...
