Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best mmorpgs today Great game. Lots of fun and perfect for casual and hardcore gamers alike. The game as amazing personal storylines that rival the stories of final fantasy but gives you the social experience of an mom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Maguuma Jungle is a scary place to go alone. After taking a few months off the game after we killed Scarlet and the vast majority of the lead up to HoT. I have to say that the world of Tyria has changed in many ways but still feels comfortable. The talent changes were confusing at first and helped me start a new character to understand core design changes. The elite specializations are mostly powerful but some feel too geared to the holy trinity and not for solo pve. Gameplay: Maguuma: The jungle is an extremely hard place for the solo player, you will need to find the zerg and hope that their goals align with yours. The story is fun and carries you through the zone, but feels gated by the mastery system and makes me sad that I might not see the story to completion due to lack of time to grind out mastery levels. Revenant: One of the most enjoyable professions in the game, they are OP right now due to being the new profession. However, they are not god like and can be killed easily at range. Graphics: The graphics of the new zones are top notch and gliding around them feel amazing. The only issue is once you go back to the normal GW2 zones the zones feel flat and sometimes bland in comparison. Sound: The music and ambient sounds are amazing in the new zones. Just sit and listen to some of the dialogue between Pact NPCs and you will see the amount of voice acting chops that this game has. Lasting Appeal: So much to do it is near impossible to say you are done. The mastery grind is real and will take so much time to complete. The living world will keep things fresh for years to come, and daily dragon kills give you something to do even if you get bored of living world and want to zerg. Not to mention the new raids, and guild halls.
