Summary: I pre-ordered the game last year and have been playing contentedly for over a year now. I decided to get this card because I was given an amazon gift card and thought I would support the developers as a thanks. The shipment arrived quickly. I was surprised by the packaging though, a full size dvd/console game case shrink wrapped to hold a small card? I entered the code and tossed the case and card in the trash.
Summary: The game was fun for a month Pros ◘ online massive multiplayer game, very fun to level up quickly then annoy lower levels trying to accomplish things ◘ very fun to play as an elementalist, in world v world, just stand back and rain down destruction while your nice and safe, and the ability to move quickly is always a plus ◘ unique game design CONS ◘ the dynamic content is just scripted events with very themepark style endings, not really dynamic enough, but keep trying
Summary: If you're planning to buy the game and are wondering if the extra $20 for the Digital Deluxe version is worth the money, I would recommend against it for the reasons listed below. The first thing you should know is that you can add the "Digital Deluxe" upgrade to your account later, through the in-game gem store. You're not forever giving them up by buying the regular version of the game, so it is safe to wait and then decide if the goodies are worth it.
Summary: Before this game even came out I've played the first Guild Wars. I've played Guild Wars beta all the way till now. When I first heard about Guild wars 2 I was excited. But as long as the wait was I was title grinding for more exclusive items in Guild Wars 2 via the Hall of Monument Calculator. I've accumulated the title God Walking Amongst Mere Mortals in the first. Saying that took time and endless playing time. But back to what I'm trying to say.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I followed it a lot during its development and everything they said about it sounded great. To me it is a decent game that I am sure a lot of people enjoy, it just feels super repetitive. The quests are the usual fair, however you don't feel like you are running back and forth trying to complete the task and then turn it in.
Summary: I liked the fact that i got experience for exploring. I love doing little more than uncovering maps. The graphics are nice and the combat fun. I shelved it before trying the PVP unfortunately. It is a good game but there is nothing exciting enough to make me say "finally, a mmorpg to take me back to Dark Ages of Camelot". Why won't game developers make a great game like that again? My fingers are crossed for Elder Scrolls Online.
Strong graphic design and Intriguing gameplay mask unsustainable lack of depth

Summary: To frame my opinion: I'm a long time mmorpg fan and since I almost first start playing games I have preferred them to everything else on the market. As so many have, I started with WoW (patch 2.3: Zulaman up to 4.2: Firelands) but after Activision happened I branched out, trying Lineage II, Aion, Rift, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Diablo II and III, Guild Wars, and most recently Guild Wars II.
Summary: GW1 was epic. This is better in some ways but not as fun in others. I really enjoyed the diversity of builds that GW1 offered;GW2 seems generic in this sense. As far as digital purchasing goes, it was a breeze. No hang ups encountered.
