Guild Wars Eye of the North
I think this game no longer are up to date. Today we want better graphics, but it is by no means awful. Still I think this is mostly a game for hardcore Guild Wars fans now.
Guild Wars EOTN
I would definitely recommend this game. It has great graphics and is very fun to play. It is not the longest Guild Wars but the most fun one. I have lots of new items you can purchase like new armor, bandana, destroyer gauntlets, glacial gauntlets, and more. There are also new items that can help you in missions. There are a couple of new heros to. There's 3 different story lines in this game. You can choose what ones you want to do first. Also there's a place called the Hall of Monuments were you can place all your max titles,elite armors, mini's, hero armors, and any destroyer weapons that you find. It is a nice little set-up. There are also some new skills. All of them are pretty good skills that you should get. But overall I think if you liked Guild Wars Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall then you're going to love Guild Wars EOTN.
Short but sweet
EotN is a must have for hardcore GW players and for those who are planning to get GW2. The scenery at some places of the game are beautiful. Ranging from mountain landscapes to fields and forests to Jurassic jungles and even down into underground chambers. Also, for people who don't want to waste time searching for a party to do a quest or a mission to proceed with the story, there's the hero and henchman system. Henchmen are in every town, but the problem is that you can't change their skills or their equipment. This is where the hero system comes in, you can only have up to 3 heroes with you at once but you can upgrade their armor, weapons, decide which skills they have, and you can disable their skills if you want. Disabling skills is useful because the AI can cause the death of your party trying to use one skill. But the AI isn't that bad, at some points they outshine players. One thing GW is famous for is that there's no monthly fee; and another thing is that whenever you leave a town to go out hunting for a boss or monsters, you and your party gets sent to your own personal map of that zone; so no one can kill-steal or camp a boss. But this also means that you can't team up with another party to take down some of the harder bosses. The difficulty at some points of the game make it hard for average players while making it a challenge for experienced players (i.e a "master" quest or an "elite" dungeon will require a specific team of players, positioning, and timing when to use skills. of course it's possible to do one of those without a specific team but you'll probably spend your entire day doing that one thing). If you focus on the storyline alone, the length of the game won't last too long. But if you plan to get the most out of EotN, you'll have to go through tons of quests and dungeons and spend alot of time farming for cash to get some unique weapons and armor only available in EotN. Those who enjoyed any of the past GW games will enjoy this expansion.
Eye of The North
Guild Wars: Eye of The North is the only expansion that is available to any of the three current Guild Wars campaigns: Prophecies, Factions, and Nightfall. It is a fascinating expansion with beautiful landscapes and graphics that depict mountains, prairies, grasslands, and dungeons. It continues the storyline that was first given by the original and first campaign of Prophecies. It takes place in the land of Tyria, to the North, while great dangers are afoot for several races. Eye of The North introduces Asura & Norn as new allies, both will be playable in the upcoming Guild Wars 2. The challenge of the game varies, but I rated it as a 9. The reason for this is that though it is not nearly impossible, the game can give you some intense challenges, especially when you use Hard Mode. Dungeons are available for players to enjoy and explore, and dangers that players have never encountered before await them in the lands of the new expansion. The controls are, as always, the same as in the original GW campaigns. You can move with the mouse, arrows, or WASD controls on the keyboard. Clicking skills or using number shortcuts are available, also. Interface and sound, graphics and animation, and character customization are still great. One flaw in character customization is that you still may not change the looks that you chose when you first created your character. The length of EOTN can be long, depending on what your goals are. Beating it could take hours on end, but getting all of the titles and unlocking all of the armor and getting new weapons can also prove to be time-consuming. The storyline is fascinating. It continues the events that happened during the campaign Prophecies in the lands of Tyria. Several things to do include invading the Charr Homelands with the Ebon Vanguard, getting revenge on them for the Searing. Bringing together all races to fight against the Destroyers is also an important thing. What happens in EoTN sets the story for GW2. In all, it is a great game. The overall rating from me is about a 9. I have tried and enjoyed the game and am permanently getting it in a week. I encourage Guild Wars fans to get this game.
