    It's kind of boring unless you have some dudes to go through it with. 
     
    You either have to PUG it or take along some CPU. 
     
    Neither option is great.

    If you have people to play it with, or are at least good at making friends in-game, then it's definitely worth buying. I've had it for nearly 6 years and it's still a hell of a lot of fun, and I've still got a lot of content I haven't even touched yet.

    @Jackel2072: I'm in the same boat, I just started the trial and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Feels a bit aged but still it's holding my interest. Wonder if the new one will run on my laptop.

    If you have friends to play it with, I highly recommend it. If you can get active in a guild then that also helps. Otherwise you may be better off waiting for Guild Wars 2. Simply put, the AI henchmen, and to a lesser extent the AI "heroes", are pretty useless and will only hold you back. They may get you buy in earlier missions (at least in the Prophecies campaign) but towards the end of the game they're useless.

    @fryedrycestyle:  I'm not sure if you have really played GW or if you are really bad at it, because i'm getting the Vanquish title (hard mode) and i'm using nothing but heroes, of course if you are bad and can't make a decent build for your heroes it's possible that you can't progress.

    I would just wait for GW2 unless you really want to burn through the story of GW to get up to speed. 
     
    Either way, Guild Wars is awesome.
