Guild Wars 2 Review

GamerNode
18 November 2012
  • Summary: When it’s all put together, one thing is made clear to me: Guild Wars 2 is the new king of the MMORPG.
  • Pros: Flips MMO conventions on their heads, Cooperation and friendliness highly rewarded, Versatile skill system, Dynamic events are incredible, World vs. World is a PvP game changer
  • Cons: Narrative disappointingly lackluster, Free server transfers can negatively affect World vs. World server ranking

Guild Wars Glorious Return

GIN
8 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Let it be known that I was a huge fan of the first Guild Wars. Getting it as a birthday present when I was 13 and running it off of a dial up modem because my family lived off the beaten path brings back memories. It's been a long time since the first Guild Wars, but after multiple delays and teasers we finally have our hands on the finished product, so was it worth the wait? Yes, it was. Guild Wars 2 picks up 250 years after the first Guild Wars.

Guild Wars 2

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: In reality, Guild Wars 2 will likely only get better in the coming weeks and months whilst players settle in, features mature and the long-term content plans reveal themselves. It’s not often you can say that about any MMO in this day and age, and even if this is one of the final death rattles for the template we’ve come to know and love over the past decade or more, what a hell of a way it would be to say goodbye.

Believe the Guild Wars 2 hype

Quarter to Three
20 September 2012
  • Excerpt: One of my most common reactions while playing Guild Wars 2 is, “Well, heck, why didn’t games do it like this before?” There are all sorts of answers to that question, including the fact that some games did do it like this before (the MMO aficionado might recognize elements of Dark Age of Camelot, Rift, Eve Online, and Guild Wars 1).

Guild Wars 2

GameTrailers
11 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Putting freedom at the forefront of its ambitious manifesto, Guild Wars 2 arrives onto the scene threatening to dismantle everything you know about the MMO. It isn’t the first would-be WoW killer to challenge the throne, but it’s certainly the first to question Blizzard’s reign rather than try to imitate it. It’s a hefty gauntlet to throw the way of a game that has singlehandedly defined online RPGs as we know it; could Guild Wars 2 be the rallying cry for revolution?

Guild Wars 2 review

GamesRadar
11 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The first few hours of Guild Wars 2 are going to confuse you, but it’s not because the game is actually confusing. Guild Wars 2 is similar enough to other massively-multiplayer online games to lull you into a false sense of familiarity, which becomes problematic when things diverge--fairly quickly--into unfamiliar territory.
  • Pros: The dynamic event system, Action-based combat, The lack of a monthly fee
  • Cons: A steep learning curve, Bugs and glitches, Random missing features

  • Cons: Does a mediocre job of explaining important concepts, Some lingering technical issues and other annoyances
