Guild Wars 2 Heroic Edition
Tough to get a handle on at first......
After playing WOW for years it was a difficult transition to GW2. One major tip here-Stay in zones within your level.....even go to lower zones than your level as the game auto-lowers your level to your surrounding levels. The views, sounds and gameplay are great. I love the user interface compared to what WOW had. You don't even need to download mods like we did in WOW. The game is near perfect as it stands. To view the maps by level zone go to map and zoom out to help you stay within or below your level.
Wow, stunned BETTER THEN WoW
My mind is blown, the graphics are astonishing and everything is perfect just wow. The game play is truly different from all the other MMO's I have ever played.
Unbiased from an MMO addict.
Ok, so gw2...it seems people either love it, or hate it! First a quick glance at what kind of gamer I am. I have played WoW since vanilla. I generally play all the expansion for a month or 2 after launch, and return towards the end to see the story wrap up. I unfortunately dont have time to be a hardcore raider like I would like so this just suits me better. I have also played a handful of other MMOs. (Rift, Lotro,WAR,Swortor,gw1,DnDO, many many others). Now...lets get into GW2. This game is simply amazing on MANY levels. There is so much variety its always easy to find something to do. I personally have owned this game since launch and I have no reached max on my main yet (he is a lvl 50 thief). I have taken my time leveling, as well as the fact that I am an altoholic. One of the greatest features of this game is you can level YOUR way. If you are a lvl 50 human, and want to go back and complete the level 1-15 starter zone for another race...you CAN! You are scaled down so that you get XP for those lower level zones as well. There are also plenty of events in every zone as well...such as world bosses and group events. Of course there are dungeons and they are actually quite hard. You can not go in with a typical MMO mindset and complete these. Arenanet does a great job of listening to the players...even subtle things such as all of your crafting items and now gold are pooled into all of your characters. No need to mail yourself items...just put it in the bank! There is new content every two weeks! Giving end game players something new to do all the time! Now as far as pvp goes I have not played it as much abut I can touch on it. ANY character you make you can do organized pvp with. When you zone in to pvp you character is max level with a full set of pvp gear! There is also the AMAZING World vs World pvp...MASSIVE scale pvp. All in all this is a great MMO. I can quit for a few months and come back without having to worry about a subscription fee. If you are an MMO fan of any kind...maybe you are looking for a new main MMO...or maybe you want another MMO to play casually along with your main MMO...this MMO is for you.
I played Guild Wars 1 for 8 years, and that WAS a fun game, one of the best PC games I ever played in my life, and there are only 2-3 "best PC Games I've ever played".
We who played GW regularly expected GW2 to be basically GW1, with different skills, professions, better graphics, fixed bugs and glitches, the addition of a Z axis (Swimming/Jumping), new items, new storyline, new maps, etc.
Instead, since some of Arenanet was fired from Blizzard (the makers of WoW) they decided to copy WoW pretty much Verbatim in mechanics, storyline, character creation, loot, and everything else.
I built my desktop computer just so it could run GW2, cost me just under $2000 (Like I bought the xbox 360 just to be able to play Halo 3 when it came out), and it was a complete disappointment.
But then again, members of Anet are brain damaged, we know this from some of the patches to Gw1 that helped destroy the player base and the game itself.
Here's to you Izzy.
I don't really see all the hype about this game. If your into pvp then this game is for u, classes are unbalanced. The game only really does pvp and not really pve very well. In pve if your the one doing all the damage then your the one that's going to get targeted, once targeted there is really no way to taunt off the unlucky guy that is targeted. No really dedicated healer or tank, self heals just are not enough to keep u alive. if a player dies any one can revive a fallen player so there is a lot of that going on in dungeons. the game don't have any 10 15 or 20 man raids it only 5 mans that's it. the bosses have no mechanics really u just dps them down and hope it don't target u. the pve is really boring in this game there is no end game content for pve. the game is really all about pvp. And there is no lore u really don't care about the main characters in the game if they live or die. To me the game seems to be all pvp and eye candy. there is really no need for a guild in this game kinda of ironic the game is called guild wars. If they would really put a great effort into pve this game would be all that it would have the best of both worlds.
Greatest MMO since WoW
This MMO is the best to come out since 2004. I mean there is so much to do. The PvP is SUPERB. Your having big PVP battles and its just amazing. Even questing is fun to do with this immerse world. Whats also interesting is the combat is surprisingly well fit. You could be playing this game JUST for the combat! Try this out even if you don't like MMO's!
Yes it might be fun for leveling, but when you hit 80. Absolutely nothing to do afterwards. I literally see hundreds of people at the main city just sitting there. If you want an mmo that has beautiful graphics and sound, this one is for you. But I promise that you will not play this after you hit 80.Sure there maybe dungeons to do and pvp to do, but it gets too repetitive. I just don't see how people can do those dungeons everyday/week. PVP...no dueling??? It looks like guild wars 2 messed up on that one. The first thing I wanted to do is duel my friend, but I guess you cant do that!! Also if your a pvp fan and like to pvp with a friend, well guess what the chances that you will be with your friend in a game of PVP are slim. The only good thing about this game is probably WvW. After play WvW for about 2 hours that to gets really tiring. Overall yes the game was good 1-80.
ehhhh, its ok
when i got this game, it took me a good 8 hours to install the 25GB it needs to run, when i started it up and played, i was sucked into the great graphics, interactive gameplay and full voice acting but after 3 months of hard work i had maxed out my first character. when i made a new elementalist, i was like woah! this game isn't as much fun as it used to be! it is hard getting used to the old events, old bosses and such but the shatterer ( dragon below) and zhaitan (also below) were fun the shatterer was firing mortars at a screaming dragon that spawn smaller dragons. zhaitan is a huge monster that it made up of many smaller dragons, after many hours of fighting zombies with my friends i finally got to fight the thing, but all you had to do was shoot a fireball launcher at it till it died, it didnt attack you or anything, just watched you kill it very disappointing. guys just wait for ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE, it will be worth it it releases MAY 3RD.
If you enjoy solo RPGs or MMORPGs, this is the best new thing. Even once you hit level 80, there's just so much to do in this MMO.
It is awesome!!!
It is awesome!!! The best MMO EVER!!! The graphics are great, pretty much every thing is PERFECT!!! It is also a great RPG. I recomend this to gamers.
