Summary: This wasn't my favorite expansion. You spend a big chunk of the midgame running around and around in a big, confusing city. Having played several characters through this campaign, there's just no way to do it efficiently, and running back and forth over the same ground gets really annoying.
Summary: I had just purchased this from Amazon a few days ago and have to say compared to Prophecies this campaign fell short in expectations and the story line is very weak. I guess that's why it was so inexpensive.
Summary: The graphics are stunning, even better than they were in Prophecies, and that is really the best aspect of this game. Factions was marketed as a stand alone game but it lacks content and most experienced Guild Wars players view it as an expansion.
Summary: The collector's edition is worth the money, you get weapons for any of the starting class that turn out to be very nice weapons to start w/ and once they get the skills built up for all the effects on the weapons. I like this game as a stand-alone rpg but not that impressed as a "multi-player" game.
Summary: the game is excellent and the graphics are cool. What dissapointed me are all the extras,(map, poster etc.)they are of poor quality and actually it looks they only put them to get more money. I know that's the point of any special edition, but I would like to see someting better for the extra money.
Summary: Let's face facts--when you sign up with an online game, you're pretty much buying in for the long haul. As far as that investment goes, if I'm reviewing the Guild Wars franchise as a whole, I still think you're probably playing the best game of its kind that's available on the market.
Summary: Unfortunately, Factions is nothing more than a concealed grindfest. It's great if you play it continously, but if you actually analyze what you are doing, you'll realize it's nothing but grind grind grind and more grind.
Conclusion: The second campaign for Guild Wars sees you travel to the new land of Cantha which is sortof based on ancient oriental myths and legends. The game introduces two new professions, the Assasin and Ritualist, and a host of new armour, weapons and skills.
Conclusion: I bought this game a while back. At First I enjoyed it but it felt rather rushed and hollow compared to the original guild wars. In this game you are treat to 2 new professions, the assassin and the ritualist.
