Guild Wars: Eye of the North
28 June 2012
Excerpt: Eye of the North is de eerste echte uitbreiding die we te spelen krijgen voor Guild Wars, dat moeilijk te definiëren online rollenspel. Dat betekent dat je sowieso reeds een Guild Wars game moet liggen hebben voor je deze kan spelen, en dat je personage ook al level 20 moet zijn voor je aan het werk kan. Met andere woorden, meer van hetzelfde voor de veteranen van de serie en zo gaan we deze review ook aanpakken.
Excerpt: Guild Wars: Eye of the North is the first true expansion in the Guild Wars series. The previous titles, Prophecies , Factions , and Nightfall all added gameplay enhancements in the form of new classes and features, but Eye of the North does not. In fact, it is the only title that requires that the player own another chapter; any one will do.
Conclusion: There's some quality content in Eye of the North, but with no new classes, nothing new on the PvP end of the game, and rewards that are largely cosmetic, it feels sparse compared to the other campaigns. Of course, if you've conquered that lot and you still want more, you're bound to find things to like about this expansion.
Excerpt: After the release of three full-blooded, standalone games in the Guild Wars franchise, it seems a little odd to stick players with an expansion pack. But that’s just what players get with Guild Wars: Eye of the North. The episodic series has definitely struck a chord with players who don’t want to give up their lives for an MMO, but will Eye of the North convince them to give up their money?
Excerpt: Odds are that you know whether or not you want Guild Wars: Eye of the North already. Unlike Factions and Nightfall, the second and third installments (campaigns) in the Guild Wars series, GWEN requires you to own at least one of the three Guild Wars campaigns. It’s clearly geared towards higher-end players and doesn’t really add new content in the way you might think an expansion would. Instead, GWEN just gives you more of the same, which may or may not be a good thing.
Excerpt: Guild Wars: Eye of the North (or GWEN, as players affectionately refer to it) is the first true expansion for the popular online role-playing game. Factions and Nightfall were both standalone products; Eye of the North requires players to own an existing Guild Wars game, and the content is available only to players who have reached the level cap of 20. This sounds limiting, and indeed, the expansion isn't going to bring new players into the fold.
Pros: Original campaign is extended with tons of new quests and content, A number of tough, satisfying dungeons to explore, Additional heroes and skills offer new ways to build characters and parties, Fun minigames add variety and charm to the time-tested gameplay
Cons: No new professions, Limited to top-level characters
