Conclusion: Speaking as someone who loves the MMOG genre, I am enjoying my time with Guild Wars 2. Visually, it's a feast for your eyes. Gameplay wise, the skill-based action combat system keeps encounters exciting even when fighting creatures below your level. ArenaNet has gone to great lengths to provide a variety of ways for players to occupy themselves as they explore the game world, harvest resources, craft and so on.
Pros: Breaks the cookie cutter MMO system, skill based action combat makes for engaging gameplay, Beautiful graphics and audio, players can jump in PvP as soon as game is installed, no monthly fee;
Cons: Players expecting the usual gamut of MMO elements will not find all of them here and some are needed like player to player trades, longevity and player retention might be a problem after the PvE elements have been fully explored, micro transactions though not required, might be a turn off to some, a few launch issues that are being resolved.
