Summary: If you are thinking of purchasing this product first consider have you bough the original product this is an expansion pack game in which you must already have the original game in order to play.
Summary: I'm not a hard core gamer and when I play an RPG I like to explore and do quests without having to die a million times and ended up failing. This game, although graphically decent looking, is impossibly hard that it always left me cursing and frustrated. Playing a game is supposed to have fun but this one leaves me angry. I wished the developer could have put an option like any other normal RPG games where players could choose "Easy", "Normal" or "Expert" mode.
Summary: Eye of the North might have been a good expansion to Guild Wars, but it wasn't tested nearly enough. Once the expansion went live, many people started to have their CD keys for their Guild Wars expansions disappear off their account. This made it very difficult, if not impossible, for most of the players with this problem to play the game at all.
Summary: I've been playing GW since shortly it came out and have bought every campaign and expansion and have been generally very happy with it. I wish I could say the same for Guild Wars: Eye of the North (GWEN). First off, let's start with the good things: 1. Tons of eye-candy. Tons of attention was paid to making the dungeons et al. look amazing. There are gas traps that shoot out amazing fountains of poison, there are cogs and wheels in motion, etc.
Summary: Fun: I love Guild Wars... I have every Chapter... but this expansion... hmmm... it's got plenty of 'things' to keep people busy (i.e. grinding for titles), but other than that... it took me 6 hours to go through the primary quest line and defeat 'The Destroyer' (a boss that went down in under 5 minutes) - which was dissapointing. The team was left going - "Is that it?" <credits start rolling>. Then there are the mini-games...
Excerpt: ...caso dell'espansione precedente, anche per Guild Wars: Eye Of The North, ArenaNet rilascia una versione di preorder con la quale "aspettare" il lancio ufficiale della nuova espansione. Ovviamente si tratta solamente di un cd di "presentazione" nel quale è possibile accedere a contenuti speciali come filmati, immagini, bozze e molto altro ancora. Scordatevi di trovare una demo giocabile e qualcosa del genere, visto che Guild Wars è un gioco online! Beh ...
